Despite dozens of reports confirming that the jailbreak developers will NOT be making a utility to jailbreak iOS 6.1.3 or 6.1.4, people are still asking about one. The dev teams have told us that they are concentrating their efforts on iOS 7 at the moment, as this is the bigger and more important update. iOS 6.1.3 and 6.1.4 only affect a relatively small number of the total amount of users whereas iOS 7 will be far more widespread.

Stay Away from iOS 6.1.3 Fake Jailbreak Tools :
There are a number of websites that claim to be able to provide users with an untethered jailbreak utility for iOS 6.1.3/6.1.4. Many of these claim to have the evasi0n download for these firmwares. Evasi0n is the jailbreak tool that was released in February for iOS 6 and will only work on 6-6.1.2. It’s also a completely free tool whereas many of the sites you come across will be asking for money. Any website that charges you for a jailbreak download is a fraud. The development teams operate on a donation basis, they do not make a charge for the work they do. If you are in any doubt, please check the evad3rs or evasi0n websites for up to date information.
iOS 61.4 – iOS 6.1.3 Jailbreak Successful :
Having said all of that, a new team has raised its head in the developing world. Called UnthreadedJB, they appear to have successfully released a jailbreak for the iPhone 4 CDMA version, running on iOS 5.1.1 or lower. However, it is only for Linux users. They have also announced that, very shortly, they will have untethered tools available for both 6.1.3 and 6.1.4.

At first look, UnthreadedJB looked to be a fake, another scam set up to rip people off. However, on closer look, this may not be the case. They have, after all, managed to release a working jailbreak for older iOS versions, making use of exploits that were already in use. Team evad3rs took a closer look and found that they were actually a genuine team who seemed to know what they were doing. You can take a look at what UnthreadedJB claim to be capable of in this video that supposedly shows an iPhone on iOS 6.1.4 jailbroken.
Obviously there will be people who think that something is just a little bit off about the whole thing. How can a new team just appear from out of the blue and succeed in doing what evad3rs won’t do? While it’s not beyond the realms of possibility for this to happen, this team is looking more and more likely to be nothing more than just a very clever community troll.

That said, it’s perfectly possible for them to release the 6.1.3/6.1.4 jailbreak. They might be better off waiting for iOS 7 though – any exploits that are used now will be gone forever and cannot be reused for iOS 7. Apple is likely to pick up on the exploits used and patch them quickly, to protect iOS 7 from the same thing. And that would destroy all the hard work that the developers have put in so far.
