Untethered iOS 6.1 jailbreak to land on most Apple mobile devices (Updated)

MuscleNerd is the bearer of potentially good news for iOS device owners. According to a report in iDownloadBlog, MuscleNerd has said that the upcoming untethered jailbreak for iOS 6.1 will support most iOS devices. This would include the following:

  • iPhone 3GS
  • iPhone 4
  • iPad 2
  • iPod touch fourth generation
  • iPhone 4S
  • iPad 3
  • iPod touch fifth generation
  • iPhone 5
  • iPad mini
  • iPad 4

MuscleNerd is now working on this jailbreak as part of the evad3rs, along with @pod2g, @Planetbeing and @pimskeks. Hopefully, this jailbreak pans out as expected and will be ready soon since iOS 6.1 finally landed in the hands of the public.

Update: As reported by Redmond Pie, a tethered jailbreak for all non-A5 iOS devices running 6.1 is available using redsn0w. Also, the iPhone 5 jailbreak noted in the article above could be released as early as Superbowl Sunday.
