This iOS 6.1.3 jailbreak tutorial was discovered by a YouTuber named iCrackUriDevice who published an updated semi UnTethered jailbreak guide for the new firmware using a simple RedSn0w workaround. Unfortunately, because the Untethered exploits utilised by Evasion are patched in iOS 6.1.3, this jailbreak remains exclusive to A4 powered devices and is Tethered by default, which I’ll explain later. If you own a newer iPhone on a previous version of iOS 6, including 6.0.1, 6.0.2, 6.1, 6.1.1 and 6.1.2, I strongly advise following our evasi0n jailbreak tutorial, as it includes untethered support for all devices.
As mentioned above, the Redsn0w Jailbreak is compatible with, and can jailbreak the following iPhone and iPod touch devices running iOS 6.1.3.
- iPhone 4 (both GSM and CMDA models)
- iPhone 3GS
- iPod touch 4th generation
While the following newer iDevices outlined below are incompatible with this iOS 6.1.3 jailbreak guide, they are still able to be jailbroken on all earlier versions of iOS 6.0, even 6.1.2, using evasion.
- iPhone 5
- iPhone 4S
- iPad mini
- iPod touch 5th generation
- iPad 4 powered by Apple’s A6X chip and Retina display
- iPad 3
- iPad 2
Furthermore, even though it’s possible to use redsn0w on iOS 6.1.3, iPhone and iPod touch owners will only be able to jailbreak using what’s referred to as a “Tethered Jailbreak”. Consequently, devices jailbroken using this method will require Redsnow to boot into their fully jailbroken state every time they turn off their iPhone. However, it is possible to install what’s known as a semi Tethered or a Semi UnTethered jailbreak on iOS 6.1.3 after completing this tutorial. This will allow the iPhone or iPod touch to reboot without the assistance of a computer with limited functionality. If you’ve previously jailbroken using a tethered version of redsn0w, jailbreaking iOS 6.1.3 should be easy for you.
