Introduction: How to Convert a Tethered Jailbreak to an Untethered Jailbreak for IOS 6 & IOS 6.1
This instructable will show all of you people who could not wait to jailbreak your IPhones from a tetherd jailbreak to a untethered one.
If you have a iPhone 4, 4S, 3GS, or iPod touch 4th gen, and want to convert to an untethered Jailbreak version, it is now possible.
WARNING!!! Jailbreaking your device WILL void the warranty, THIS INSTRUCTABLE IS FOR INFORMATIONAL USE ONLY!!! ANY DAMAGE THAT YOU DO TO YOUR DEVICE BY FOLLOWING THIS IS YOUR OWN DOING!
THINGS YOU WILL NEED
Your IPhone or IOs 6x Device
A program called Cydia (google it)
A program called evasi0n (google this as well)
A program called TinyUmbrella (google)
A computer/Laptop Running Windows or Mac OS
Before you start the jailbreak process on your iPhone 5 (and other devices), you'll need to backup your SHSH blobs for your iOS 6.
It's important to save these files because then you'll be able to downgrade back to iOS 6.1 if newer firmware is released or an error happens during the jailbreak process.
If you don't save the SHSH blobs, there will be no way to get back to your original firmware.
To backup your SHSH blobs:
Download TinyUmbrella and run the app.
Connect your device and then select it from the upper left-hand corner of TinyUmbrella.
Click on the Advanced tab and uncheck the following: Save ALL Available SHSH and Request SHSH From Cydia.
Click on Save SHSH and your blob should be saved onto your computer. It will show up under Log if it is successful.
Now that your SHSH blobs are saved, you'll need to do a few more things before you start the jailbreak
A computer, running Windows (XP minimum), Mac OS X (10.5 minimum) or Linux (x86 / x86_64).
Backup your device to iTunes (to save apps, photos, etc.).
Disable the lock passcode (it won't allow you to jailbreak the device with it).
To begin the untethering process, you'll need to:
Open Cydia on your device and tap on Search.
Search for evasi0n and install the evasion 6.x Untether package.
When finished installing, reboot/respring your device.
You should now be untethered.
Your device should reboot completely untethered, allowing you to now reboot your device without having to be connected to a computer. If there are any issues with your applications not working 100% or your weather app is crashing:
Open Cydia, go to Changes and install the new UIKit Tools update, or...Search Cydia for UIKit Tools and install.
This tool is compatible with all devices running iOS 6.0 through 6.1, including the iPod touch (4, 5), iPad (2, 3, 4), iPad Mini, iPhone (3GS, 4, 4S), and most importantly...the iPhone 5!
Jailbreaking Your iPhone 5
BACKUP YOU FILES AND SETTINGS USING TinyUmbrella FIRST!!
Download the app specific to your device from evasi0n (google)
Connect your device.
Click on Jailbreak.
Halfway through the jailbreak process, the app will notify you to tap on the evasi0n jailbreak icon that should now be downloaded on your device.
The process will then continue, taking about 5 minutes in total. Your device will then restart (a couple of times is normal).
Your device should now be jailbroken!
Open your device, click on Cydia (the directory of applications) and see the full potential of your Apple device!
