After the release of evasi0n 7 jailbreak tool the new p0sixpwn tool has also been released and it is now available for download. The new posixspwn tool comes to make the iOS 6.1.5 possible. It also has support for previous versions of iOS as well, which means iOS users who are still using iOS 6.1.3 or iOS 6.1.4 can also use this tool in order to untethered jailbreak their devices.
It supports iPhone 3GS and A4 chip powered devices which includes iPhone 4, original iPad and iPod touch 4th generation. While newer devices are not supported as of right now iH8Sn0w has stated on his official blog post that support for A5+ devices for iOS 6.1.3 and iOS 6.1.4 will be added soon and might get released on the Christmas day.
P0sixspwn is not a standalone jailbreak tool like evasi0n 7 or Redsn0w. Users will have to download it from Cydia after they have tethered jailbreak their device using Redns0w. Use the guide below.
Here’s how you can untethered jailbreak your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch running iOS 6.1.x using posixspwn tool
2) Open Cydia.
3) Click the “Changes” tab in the footer.
4) Press the “Refresh” button in the top left corner.
5) After “Reloading Data”, perform a search for “p0sixspwn” (the O is a zero).
6) Tap Install.
While iOS 7 users wouldn’t care about the jailbreak for iOS 6 versions it is a big news for those who have devices that are not compatible with iOS 7 or those who don’t want to upgrade to iOS 7 due to their disliking of its design.
