How to jailbreak any iOS 6 device (iPhone 3gs, 4, 4s)

What Is Jailbreak?

Jailbreaking an iOS-device is no longer as challenging a task as it used to be. What was once a prerogative of the tech-savvy millennials has now become a mainstream. So what makes jailbreaking so popular?

iOS 6 Jailbreak

Jailbreaking is a process of removing any restrictions on iOS, or breaking its file system open, to be able to modify it the way you want. Jailbreaking allows iOS users to install any applications, programs or games that come from outside of Apple’s App Store – the official content service of the Apple company.

The first jailbreak app appeared when iOS users got pretty much fed up with having to pay for apps and games they wanted to install and so they chose to hack their devices to remove any limitations imposed by Apple.

What Opportunities Does Jailbreak Give?
  • Access to Cydia. Jailbreakers created Cydia as an alternative to the traditional Apple’s App Store. It has a great variety of apps to help you increase your phone’s functionality, design, networking abilities and productivity.
  • Improved Customization. Who doesn’t want to have an iPhone that looks unique and personalized? By jailbreaking your iOS device, you will be given a free hand in customizing your phone to your liking. When your iPhone is hacked, you will be able to change the way your icons look, change their size, add new icons to your springboard, increase the storage capacity of your folders, choose new themes etc.
  • Enhanced iOS Security. No matter what they say, jailbreak does not make your device less protected or more vulnerable. Do not be afraid to jailbreak the phone since it will only give you improved security options.
2 Cool Cydia Apps You Can’t Use Unless You Jailbreak Your iPhone

1) SBSettings

It’s really surprising how Apple still doesn’t have it! This great app allows you to enable and disable many iPhone settings such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth or 3G network without exiting any currently running apps. Using the menu of the app, you can access any setting on the fly from anywhere on your iPhone.

2) biteSMS

Can’t imagine your life without texting? Need to be able to text anyone, anytime and from anywhere on your phone? That’s easy!

With this cool app, you will be able to quickly compose and reply to received messages from anywhere on your iPhone. The quick reply interface of the app is easily invoked by tapping on a banner, or swiping a notification from the Lock screen. However, the perks of the app do not end here. The latest version of biteSMS also allows you to mute your conversations on a one-side basis and insert the last taken phone in your conversation.

Now, that it’s clear what jailbreak is and why it is so useful, let’s take a look at the main steps one should take in order to jailbreak their iOS-device.

How to Jailbreak?

Step 1: Backup your iOS-device.

Step 2: Download Evasion for your OS.

Step 3: Open up the downloaded Evasion app.

Step 4: Connect your PC to the iOS-device you want to jailbreak. Please note that you need to temporarily disable your passcode lock to let the jailbreak do its job. To disable the passcode lock go to Settings – General – Passcode Lock. Also, don’t forget to turn the Airplane mode on to prevent any updates or apps from interfering with the process!

Step 5: Click the Jailbreak button in the Evasion app window on your computer. Wait for the Evasion app to complete this step. It might take a while and the iOS device will restart during the process.

Step 6: Once you are done, unlock the device and tap on the jailbreak app icon. Nothing will pop-up but your computer will show that the jailbreak process continues. After the process is complete, you can close the Evasion app on your PC and reboot the device a couple of times.
