P0sixspwn Jailbreak Updated for iOS 6.1.6

Another day, another firmware update. With the release of iOS 6.1.6 to patch the SSL security flaw, iH8sn0w and Winocm have updated the p0sixspwn Cydia package accordingly. Now those looking to untether a jailbroken iPhone 3GS or iPod touch 4G running iOS 6.1.6 can grab the latest version of p0sixspwn.

jailbreak iOS 6.1.6

Updating to iOS 6.1.6 is a good idea for those on earlier versions of iOS 6. The data security flaw identified as CVE-2014-1266 is a vulnerability in SSL that makes it possible for an attacker to capture or modify data. Those with devices that are already jailbroken can install SSLPatch directly from Cydia to fix the problem.

Evad3rs Not Happy with p0sixspwn iOS 6.1.3-6.1.5 Jailbreak

As promised, albeit a little late, iH8sn0w and winocm have delivered an untethered jailbreak for A5 devices running iOS 6.1.3-6.1.5, but their use of an unused exploit is not sitting well with some in the jailbreaking community.


Evad3rs member pod2g took to Twitter to blast iH8sn0w and winocm for using an exploit originally found by JailbreakMe creator Comex. Pod2g believes using a "highly valuable root exploit" on older firmware was a waste of time, and he claims iH8sn0w and winocm have destroyed any chance for it to be used for future jailbreak releases. A lot of people in the jailbreaking community agree, and are worried Apple will now close the exploit since it was made public.
