    Default iOS 6 / iOS 6.1 Untethered Jailbreak For iPhone 5 / iPhone 4S Is Ready, Confirms Pod2G

    Honestly in the past I haven't had any problems jailbreaking from OTA updates, you just need to have an ispw available on your computer.

    1. Connect iPhone to iTunes via cable.

    3. Open and download the iOS 6.1 firmware for your device.
    4. In iTunes hold the Shift/Option key on your keyboard and hit Restore.
    5. Navigate to the 6.1 firmware you downloaded in step 3.
    6. When the restore is complete you'll be on 6.1. Now restore from the backup you made in step 2 to restore your apps and data.
    That link takes you to the fake DreamJB site.

    I know. It was the first site I found that had updated links for the 6.1 firmware. They are legit - I've tested the iPad 3 firmware myself.

    Edit: Updated the link with a more reputable source.

    I updated ota. So, I used a different computer to restore, here is my question. Should I now d/l 6.1 firmware through the website you suggest?

    Thanks for any help

    tip: is fake, like every iOS 6.1 jailbreak tool website popping-up at the moment.

    Is there anyway to get the firmware 6.1 on my main computer? I messed up by updating ota and restored through a different computer. I did a back up to my main computer after I restored. Will this solve my problem?

    Thanks

    I tried to do that by restoring my iPhone but I couldn't restore to set it up as a new phone.

    Some pertinent tweets…

    The jailbreak has NOT been released yet! don't get fooled! You will hear from @evad3rs when it's available.

    DO NOT go to any website searching for a 6.1 JB. THESE ARE FAKE. Don't go there, you will give these scammers money if you do SO DON'T DO IT

    Ok, thanks. That will allow me to download the ipsw. Then I can always restore? A dumb question, after I download, do I double click to install the firmware? Thank you

    while device is plugged into iTunes hold shift+click on restore (WIN) - browse to your downloaded firmware - then double click on it

    Sorry for the noob question, but the ISPW file DOES NOT install a jailbreak right? It will be released later on in the week?

    Just out of curiosity, what was the purpose of installing the ISPW file and restoring everything?

    Correct, the ipsw is just the iOS file and restoring everything is just to limit the chances of anything going wrong.

    Okay so I'm still a little confused by all this restore, downgrade, and re-restore business. I already updated my 4S to 6.1 OTA. My concern is, say I wasn't happy with the JB at some point, could I still go into iTunes and restore the phone out of the JB back to factory? Or is that what the whole point of updating to 6.1 through iTunes is for?

    yes, you can restore back to factory settings ANY time you wish via iTunes

    now jailbreaking again is tricky IF Apple is no longer signing the "jailbreakable" firmware. that is why you would want to save your SHSH blobs (via TinyUmbrella) so you can downgrade your OS and jailbreak again (if needed) even after Apple is no longer signing the desired firmware

    keep in mind SHSH blobs are device specific so if you change devices then the process starts all over

    you can always restore as new to make sure you have the complete 6.1 firmware saved
    So if I don't care about downgrading (I'm already on 6.0.1 OTA) then it should be safe to update to 6.1 OTA?

    So just doing a normal update via iTunes is insufficient? I plugged my iPhone 5 in, did a backup (honestly, the reason I decided to update tethered, just in case), then told iTunes to do the update. When it was done, I followed the prompts on the phone to select the language, etc. I did not manually do a restore.
