Following the release of an untethered jailbreak, evasi0n7, by the evad3rs team for compatible devices running iOS 7 through iOS 7.0.4, iOS hacker Steven De Franco, who is commonly known as iH8sn0w, has released an untethered Cydia package for the iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4 and iPod touch 4G running iOS 6.1.3 and iOS 6.1.5.
iH8sn0w has also blogged that he will update sn0wbreeze to incorporate the untether later. But he has not given any ETA. The team's next focus will be to release an A5+ jailbreak for iOS 6.1.3/6.1.4.
"Our next priority is getting an A5+ jailbreak for iOS 6.1.3/6.1.4 out. As I stated on Twitter, we expect it should be out by Christmas day. So if you don't feel like upgrading to iOS 7 and prefer 6.1.3/6.1.4, sit tight for a bit," notes iH8sn0w.
The hacker has also shared an easy method to install the untethered jailbreak on iPhone 3GS/A4 devices running iOS 6.1.3/6.1.5
