Today, in a rather peculiar update, Apple released iOS 6.1.4 to the public, which appears to be exclusive to the iPhone 5. Today’s iOS 6.1.4 firmwarefollows the release of Apple’s 6.1.3 update on March 19th that was issued to bring minor improvements and bug fixes to iOS. Unfortunately, like with iOS 6.1.3, today’s 6.1.4 release is unable to be jailbroken by evasi0n. Additionally, 6.1.4 is on the smaller side of firmware updates, weighing in at merely 11.5MB in size for Apple’s over the air (OTA) update feature on an iPhone 5 running 6.1.3.
Jailbreak 6.1.4 iOS Information and Warning
The newest iPhone 5-exclusive version of iOS, which carries a build number of 10B350, appears to only update the audio profile for speakerphone mode on theiPhone 5.
As previously mentioned, iOS 6.1.4 is the successor to 6.1.3: the update that patched a number of iOS vulnerabilities that were previously exploited by evasion to achieve an UnTethered jailbreak on iOS 6.0 through 6.1.2.
Needless to say, if you’re jailbroken on an earlier version of iOS 6, and you wish to maintain your device(s) jailbroken status, avoid both iOS 6.1.3 and 6.1.4 like the plague. If you have yet to jailbreak your iOS-device(s) on iOS 6.0 or 6.1.2 usingevasi0n, we highly recommend following our in-depth jailbreak tutorial.
Although A4-powered devices are able to jailbreak 6.1.3 (the latest firmware for devices other than the iPhone 5) using a Redsn0w workaround to achieve a semi UnTethered jailbreak, iPhone 5, iPhone 4S, iPad 4, iPad 3, iPad 2 and iPod touch 5G owners who update past iOS 6.1.2 will regrettably be stuck on the latestfirmware without the possibility of jailbreaking.
