We’ve openly speculated that the Evasi0n jailbreak might be the last public jailbreak now that Apple has closed the security holes that makes evasi0n work, but maybe we spoke too soon: well-known jailbreaker
In a couple of not-quite-modest tweets, p0sixninja said:
Well, so far it looks like the next jailbreak might be created entirely by me.
Evad3rs haven’t gone anywhere, I’ve just discovered all the needed exploits on my own over the past few months
Of course, even if p0sixninja does get a jailbreak working for iOS 6.1.3, it would be foolish for him to release it with iOS 7 on the horizon due to debut in June. Better to save the exploits and apply them to a public iOS 7 jailbreak. With iOS 7 unlikely to officially debut until fall, that means we might have a long time to wait.

Jailbreakers will take note that iOS 6.1.3, released yesterday, blocks the Evasi0n jailbreak. The Evasi0n jailbreak is the most popular one to date,according to Forbes, which reports that it has been used to jailbreak 18 million iOS devices in the six weeks since its launch.
Ironically enough, even though iOS 6.1.3 blocks the Evasi0n jailbreak, Apple thanked the Evasi0n team in security notes accompanying the upgrade. The people behind Evasi0n say that they probably will not release another jailbreak until the next major release of iOS. What that means for potential jailbreakers is that if you want to jailbreak your iPhone you cannot upgrade past iOS 6.1.2. If you do you’ll lose the ability to jailbreak your device until the next major release of iOS.
The Evad3rs team have released another update for their hugely popular jailbreaktool known as evasi0n. The latest update sees mostly bug fixes surrounding boot up times of jailbroken devices; you should see a significant improvement with version 1.5. The update also offers a refreshed Cydia package list.
The team has also released an update that you can install via the Cydia jailbreak installer if you are already jailbroken; there is no need to re-jailbreak to get the latest version. Simply fire up Cydia and you should see an update 0.4 for Evasi0n.
The team certainly hasn’t rested on their laurels and have always been on the ball with updates to the evasi0n jailbreak tool. Earlier this week, Apple released iOS 6.1.2 and within hours, evasi0n was updated with full support for iOS 6.1.2; pretty impressive stuff.

The iPhone finally gets a working Smart Cover.
We’re huge fans of the new SurfacePad case from TwelveSouth. It’s just like a Smart Cover, with just one drawback: it doesn’t turn your iPhone on and off automatically when you open it or close it.
We hated that, so we figured out a way to turn the SurfacePad, or any other wallet-style iPhone case, into a working Smart Cover just like the iPad has. The hack doesn’t take much work, and you’ll save yourself from having to unlock your iPhone every time you just want to check something really quick.
Here’s how to do it:
Before you start you’ll need a jailbroken iPhone. If you haven’t jailbroken your iPhone yet, then follow our guide on how to jailbreak your iPhone the right way. Once your iPhone is jailbroken then you’re ready begin.
|1). Download the ‘Always On Proximity’ tweak from the Big Boss Repo in Cydia.
2). Install Always On Proximity.
3). Respring your iPhone.
4). You’re good to go.
The Always On Proximity tweak turns your iPhone on or off based on whether there is an object close to your iPhone’s proximity sensor. If you cover the top portion of your iPhone with an object like your finger, the screen will shut off. Remove the object, and the screen will turn back on but you don’t have to swipe to unlock your iPhone.
Now your SurfacePad or any other iPhone folio case can function like the iPad’s Smart Cover. Shoot, you can even just put your iPhone in your jeans and it will automatically turn off when in your pocket, and then back on when you pull it out.

Unless it’s full of unread notifications, the iPhone’s lock screen is already pretty bare — Apple has designed it to be clean and clear, like the rest of iOS. But you can take it a step further with SubtleLock, a new tweak for jailbroken iPhones that adds a touch of minimalism to your lock screen to provide you with more space and a cleaner look.
Once installed, SubtleLock slims down the bars at the top and bottom of your lock screen to make them as thin as they possibly can be without removing their functionality. So you’ll still see the time and date, only the clock’s a little smaller, and the date sits alongside it — rather then beneath it.
The lock screen slider and camera shortcut also remain, and they stay the same size, so they’re still as easy to use with your thumbs. But any unnecessary space is removed, providing you with an additional 100 pixels on the lock screen, according to SubtleLock’s developer.
That gives your more room for notifications, and provides you with a bigger window to your wallpaper.
The great thing about SubtleLock is that it has its own preferences with the Settings menu, and you can enable or disable it on the fly without having to respring each time.
You can download SubtleLock now from Cydia’s BigBoss repository, and it’s priced at $1.

As expected, the popular “evasi0n” untethered iOS 6 jailbreak tool has just been updated to version 1.3 (as revealed by the Evad3rs team on Twitter). The update adds support for iOS 6.1.1 on the iPhone 4S, which Apple released earlier today.
From the release notes:
- - Support for 6.1.1 on the iPhone 4S.
The update is only necessary for users who have already updated to iOS 6.1.1. In any other case, it should not be necessary to re-jailbreak your device using the new tool. The updated tool can be downloaded directly from the official website.
