Jailbreak for iOS 6.1 – more jail than break

A few hours ago the most expected and long announced Jailbreak for iOS 6.1 (or Jailbreak for iOS 6.x) has been released and said to be the most easy-to-use jailbreak so far and untethered on top. This jailbreak applies to all of the following devices that run iOS 6.1 or earlier: iPod Touch 3G/4G/5G, iPhone 3G/4/4S/5 and iPad 1/2/3/4/mini. The guys at evasi0n were the first ones that came up with the hack-software as this was a pretty tough race for hacking supremacy.

 

From the first glance it really seems so easy to install the jailbreak and too good to be true… unfortunately it happens to be so. It’s like a bad sketch where the criminals dig up a tunnel that exits in another prison cell.

 

Unfortunately the people that have already started jailbreaking their iDevices seem to experience a handful of “side-effects” like: “When downloading the app from Cydia. It says, “NetDB: Open nodemnam nor sername provided, or not know.” What should I do???” and “I’m having the same problem” or “I just can’t do it”.

 

The jailbreak developers do warn users to “must make a backup for your device data just in case anything wrong takes place while jailbreaking (which is not quite expected)” and even if it’s reassuring at the end of the sentence it really doesn’t make you confortable.

 

All matter taken into account I guess that users will think twice and wait a little more before attempting the new jailbreak.
