Apple quickly released the iOS 6.1.2 update today to address a few
lingering bugs in the OS, but luckily, the jailbreak wasn’t patched.
However, the Evad3rs team worked around the clock to update the Evasi0n
desktop tools and we are now glad to say that iOS 6.1.2 can be
jailbroken fully untethered using the latest version of Evasi0n, which
All iOS devices that are able to run iOS 6.0 through 6.1.2 are
supported, including the 5th-gen iPhone. The only exception is the
recently released Apple TV 3, which cannot be jailbroken at the moment.[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
While jailbreaking generally does not cause any harm to your device
or the installed software, it is always prudent to back up your device
using iTunes or iCloud before proceeding.
Instructions for jailbreaking your device using Evasi0n are exactly same as before. If you have used Evasi0n to jailbreak iOS 6 or jailbreak iOS 6.1 in the recent past, then jailbreaking 6.1.2 shouldn’t be a problem.
Step by step instructions are as follows.How-to Jailbreak iOS 6.1.2
Update your device to iOS 6.1.2 using iTunes (download iOS 6.1.2
from here): if you are jailbreaking your device, why not update it to
the latest version of iOS? OTA updates might mess with the jailbreak,
therefore a fresh restore via iTunes is strongly recommended.Step 2:
Turn off Passcode Lock in case you have it enabled. In order to do this, simply head on over to Settings > General > Passcode Lock > Off
Download Evasi0n 1.4, which adds the support for 6.1.2 [for Windows, Mac or Linux][You must be registered and logged in to see this image.][You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]Step 4:

the “Jailbreak” option. Kick back or grab a cup of coffee as Evasi0n
does its work and jailbreaks your device. Remember not to touch anything
while your device is being jailbroken.[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]Step 5:
Once this is done, your device should boot straight
back. You will see a new Jailbreak icon on your home screen. Tap on it
in order to finish the process.Step 6:
Your device will now reboot quite a few times for a
short while, before it boots into the jailbroken state. Once this is
finally done, your device should boot back in a jailbroken state.
You are done:
if everything has gone as expected,
Evasi0n should indicate that the jailbreak is complete. Cydia should now
also be on your home screen.
