To any members who discover a website that says it has a jailbreak for iOS 6.1.3, there is no such thing. There is not and will never be a jailbreak for iOS 6.1.3. Any real jailbreak news for any version of iOS 6 will be added to the first post in this thread. Please do not post links to any sites purporting to offer such a jailbreak. Any such post is subject to deletion.

Same for 6.1.4. Note that 6.1.4 is iPhone 5 only, and I've seen a few sites offering 6.1.4 jailbreaks for the iPad Mini.... Your best source of info would be on iPad/iPhone Forums, the real Twitter accounts, as well as their respective sites. If it's not a reputable source, always second guess it

My mini is nagging me to update to 6.1.3 -- which, of course, I don't want to do.

Is there a way to A), tell it to stop nagging, and B), keep it from updating automatically (or by accident)?

Since this has a very narrow set of uses for me, I don't see any need ever to update.

Your iPad will not update unless you authorize it. There is a jailbreak tweak that will hide the notification, but I'm not familiar enough with jailbreaking to remember which one it is.

SO I read all through this and Jailbroke my Ipad. Then I upgraded to 6.1.2 and re jailbroke it. I want to do a full rebuild on it because I am having weird issues. So if I do a backup within itunes first and then use PKG Backup for the Cydia backup, how do I do a restore and rebuild from scratch without having to upgrade to the 6.1.3 and lose the jailbreak?

You can't selectively restore on any iOS for any iPads. The only device that has limited selective restoration is the iPad 2 assuming you have iOS 4 and iOS 5 blobs, allowing you to downgrade from iOS 6 back to iOS 5 that you have blobs for. Your only options for the iPad 2 assuming you have blobs are to restore to the latest iOS, or downgrade to any iOS 5 that you have blobs for. For the iPad 3, 4 and Mini, your only restore option from iOS 6 is to 6.1.3

An option you may want to try, assuming it is something that is jailbreak related which is causing the problem, is to use iLex RAT to remove all your tweaks and settings, and reset your jailbreak to a "fresh" state without needing to restore. It is definitely worth a try. See here - http://www.ipadforums.net/ipad-hack...-tweaks-without-restoring-rejailbreaking.html

If you go to Settings>General>About>Version, you will see which iOS version is currently on your iPad. The iPad 2 supports the latest iOS version available, iOS 6.1.3, which can't be jailbroken. I'm afraid you can't upgrade your iOS if you want to remain jailbroken. The only iOS version you can upgrade to is iOS 6.1.3, which will not receive a jailbreak. If you want to preserve your jailbreak, you will have to remain on whatever iOS version you're currently on.

Because the evasi0n jailbreak team has stated that they're not going to burn an exploit to jailbreak iOS 6.1.3, when that exploit may be needed for an iOS 7 jailbreak. If you see anybody or any site that advertises an untethered jailbreak for iOS 6.1.3, it's a scam.

Many thanks indeed.....Makes sense.
Only reason I ask is because I'm having latency issues in some guitar apps on Ipad3 with Jailbreak running IOS 5 ???
Some people state it's the jailbreak which I doubt and some others say it's because the apps are designed to run better with IOS 6. No probs, I can live with it.
Thanks again.
:rolleyes:

Hi. Following my thread in this forum about possible hardware problems with my JB ipad3 on 5.1.1, and whether I can keep the JB after repair, I'm considering getting an ipad4 but need to have it JB. If out of the box the iPad is on 6.1.2 or earlier, does it mean that it can be jail broken? Also, would I be able to restore my ipad3 5.1.1 backup onto it?
