    20th March 2013 - iOS 6.1.3 has been publicly released and cannot be jailbroken at this time!

    When iOS 6.1.3 Beta 2 was released to developers the sad, although expected, news was that the Evasi0n Jailbreak time zone exploit was patched. With the public release, Apple has taken the opportunity to patch 4 of the 6 exploits which evasi0n used :)

    If you have not already taken the steps necessary to update to 6.1.2 (or any previous version of 6.x) on your iPad it is now too late, regardless of whether you have saved SHSH Blobs or not.

    It's about damn time they patched it ;-) So far it doesn't look like any major change for .3 that I can see. Hopefully we won't have to wait until iOS 9.1.2 for another expoit.

    My understanding is they actually patched another hole as well that has not been used yet, but was found internally...

    Probably only a matter of time that apple finds a way to permanently block jailbreaking.

    Na, there's always a hole! lol I'm heading back to Android if they manage to find a way to keep jailbreakers at bay.

    You don't have to do anything ;-) But if you want .2 you have to upgrade now (or very soon). The fix in .2 is minor IMO and unless you are affected then there is probably no point in upgrading.

    We are not here to tell you what to do ;)

    You are not on the latest jailbreakable version of IOS. You need to make the decision about whether you are comfortable with that or not. Whilst fairly unlikely, if you find out there is an issue with 6.1.1, which is fixed with 6.1.2, and you chose not to install it, then you won't have that option once 6.1.3 is out.

    The choice is yours :D

    Wow!! They closed the jb window in just less than a month. This is sad news. Luckily I have both my iPads jailbroken :D. Maybe I should download the relevant ipsw (?) just in case someone figures out the blob thingy.

    There is no rush to download the IPSW file. You can always download any historical IPSW from our handy thread here - http://www.ipadforums.net/ipad-hacking/24939-official-apple-ios-firmware-download-links-ipad.html

    The important thing is to have your saved SHSH Blobs as there may well be a way developed to allow the re-restore of 6.0 to 6.1.2 using the same exploits the evasi0n jailbreak uses.

    You can stay on the iOS that you're on currently, but save your blobs for all iOS's just in case you're forced to or need to upgrade for some particular reason. That way, you can upgrade your device to say iOS 6.1.2 so that you'll still have a jailbroken device until a re-restore/downgrade is put together for A5+ devices

    Jon, how is it possible to support an upgrade to a version of IOS which is no longer being signed? This is not the first time you have advised members of this and I am not aware of any way to make this possible. (a stitched custom firmware requires pwndDFU, which is impossible on any iPad supporting 6.x).
    If an upgrade were possible regardless of the signing window, then a re-restore would also be possible at any time since any operation which is not a "downgrade" is essentially the same at a technical level.

    I am extremely cautious about advising members that as long as they have blobs, then can choose to upgrade later to 6.1.2. AFAIK, that is impossible once the signing window is closed. What am I missing?
