Crucial Info For Those Willing To Jailbreak And Unlock iOS 6 Today

  • If you are an Apple iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S user who depend on software or hardware methods to unlock their iPhones, there’s just one word from us- STAY AWAY FROM THE FREAKING iOS 6 UPDATE. That’s right. iOS 6 is like poison to your locked iDevices specially iPhones, and once you update to iOS 6, two things will happen. First you will lose your Activation Ticket, i.e you will be stuck on the activation screen once you update. Secondly, and most importantly, iOS 6 is going to permanently update your iPhone or iDevice baseband. Updated baseband means that you will NOT be able to use your software or hardware unlocking methods to bypass that particular baseband which comes with the iOS 6.
  • Secondly, if you are thinking of jailbreaking your iDevice after updating it to iOS 6, please be informed that there is no valid jailbreak or vulnerability discovered in the iOS 6 betas ever since they were released. Now it is very much evident that iOS 6 is not jailbreak friendly at the moment, so once you update your iDevice to iOS 6, you would not only lose out all your jailbreak tweaks and apps, but you also won’t be able to re-install them by jailbreaking your iDevice anytime soon.
  • This is the first time when iOS 6 will be available OTA (Over The Air). i.e, you can easily update to iOS 6 without plugging your device to the computer, but as we said, if you own a locked iDevice, stay away from this update for a while as we will be publishing a tutorial on how to safely update to iOS 6 on locked iDevices soon.
  • In case you find your iDevice safe to update to iOS 6, you will require the latest version of iTunes, i.e iTunes v10.7, so keep it handy. You can download the latest version here.
