After the release of iOS 6.1.2 by Apple to combat the well-known Exchange Bug in iOS 6.1, its time to unveil some good news for our folks awaiting for the Untethered Jailbreak. As we told you in our previous post that Apple didn’t patched the Evasi0n Exploit in iOS 6.1.2 and the lock screen bug that was reported in iOS 6.1.x remains unfixed. Following the freedom from Apple’s side of not fixing the issues, its time to get some good news from the Evad3rs regarding the iOS 6.1.2 Untethered Jailbreak.
The Good news is that Apple doesn’t patch the exploit of Evasi0n and the newly released iOS 6.1.2 is still vulnerable to Untethered Jailbreak released by Evad3rs. Therefore today the upfront member of Planetbeing jumped into the Jailbreaking scene to see if iOS 6.1.2 is still vulnerable or not. According to his tweet on Twitter, the newly release iOS 6.1.2 is still vulnerable to Evasi0n Untethered Jailbreak and the iPhone 5 along with iPad Mini Wi-Fi models can be Jailbreaked using the current version of Evasi0n.
Not yet able to test all devices, but it’s looking good for 6.1.2. iPad mini wi-fi and iPhone 5 are still jailbreakable.

iPhone 5 and iPad Mini Wi-Fi running iOS 6.1.2 can Untethered Jailbreak using the same current version of Evasi0n that is not recommended by us because some users might run into series of issues after Jailbreaking on iOS 6.1.2. In case some one has accidentally updated, the person can use the current version of Evasi0n to Untethered Jailbreak iOS 6.1.2 on iPhone 5 and iPad Mini Wi-Fi for the time being. Rest iDevices are being looked into by the Evad3rs and an update to Evasi0n would be released soon. Stay tuned with us.
