Apple Makes Jailbreaking More Difficulties In iOS 6.1

Apple Makes Jailbreaking More Difficult In iOS 6.1 | Dec 25th 2012

While we patiently wait for the untethered jailbreak for iOS 6, it looks like Apple continues to work hard to up the ante in the cat and mouse game with jailbreakers.

iOS hacker and security expert Stefan Esser aka i0n1c has tweeted that Apple has added more protection, which will make it tougher to jailbreak iOS 6.1.

There must have been some change of guard at Apple.iOS6.1 adds again tougher protections although public JB community hasn’t broken iOS6 yet

Today I realized another protection in iOS 6.1 that I nearly oversaw but it kills off some additional tricks.

It is widely speculated that iOS 6.1 beta 4 is the final beta and Apple could release iOS 6.1 in the first half of January 2013. Though Essar hasn’t provided any further details, jailbreakers should follow the golden rule and avoid upgrading to iOS 6.1 when Apple releases it to the public to increase their chances of jailbreaking their device.

Apple has released four beta versions of iOS 6.1 developers (beta 1, beta 2, beta 3, beta 4), but we’re yet to discover any major new feature for iOS device users, which indicates that iOS 6.1 is probably a security update to make it even more difficult for hackers to jailbreak it.

It has been more than 3 months since iOS 6 was released, but there has been no clear indications that a jailbreak for it will be released anytime soon, so all we can do is continue to wait patiently.
