In addition to Envasi0n, iPhone Dev Team lead hacker @musclenerd has packaged untethered exploit into a working cydia package – Evasi0n 6.x Untether 0.1-1. The package, which is based on planetbeing and nikias exploits, essentially cuts the cord while rebooting the jailbroken iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS and iPod touch 4G. Evasi0n 6.x Untether will allow iOS 6.1 jailbroken device to reboot without requiring an external source such as redsn0w.
Existing users (non A5/A5X users) who have already used redsn0w utility for tethered jailbreak can just install Evasi0n 6.x Untether cydia package. There is no need to re-jailbreak your device. This Cydia package installs necessary patches on your device and conveniently converts your tethered jailbreak into ‘untethered’.
In case you are getting the some weird error and is unable to jailbreak your non-A5 device using Evasi0n tool, follow an alternative method to free your device from Apple’s restriction. Just jailbreak it using Redsn0w and Untether it after installing this package. Boom! You’re done! Here’s the step by step guide to achieve the jailbreak:
Note: Only iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS (New Bootrom), iPod touch 4G users should be able to take advantage of Evasi0n 6.x Untether.
