Evasi0n Team Will Not Work on Jailbreak for iOS 6.1.3
Pod2G of the evad3rs Jailbreak team took to twitter today to announce that they will not be working on a jailbreak for the new iOS 6.1.3. Reasoning that it is not a significant upgrade and the work required to execute it wouldn’t be worth the rewards.

@xld2s59 we are not working on a 6.1.3 jailbreak, that would be too much efforts for a minimal update. We’re waiting for a major release.

All right, another exploitable use-after-free for production Safari/Chrome and WebKit nightly ;-) That’s 3.

@slawek_bielawa They could be utilized for a remote jailbreak, but this is not what I am trying to do here!

@jaywalkn I have not decided yet. May either: report, keep them for me, sell them…

PosixNinja did add that he’d be looking to utilize exploits for a possible iOS “7.0.x or maybe even 7.1.x” jailbreak.

While the news may be bum out users stuck on iOS 6.1.3, the Evasi0n jailbreak should have given enough, around 14 million users according to Saurik, the ability to jailbreak and keep it on iOS 6.1.2 or lower. It definitely might hit hard for new iPhone owners that bought the device on iOS 6.1.3, or iPhone 5 users who can’t downgrade for the time being.

P0sixninja followed up saying, people should expect “fewer and fewer” jailbreaks as the process of finding exploits becomes “harder and harder”

Should the Evasi0n team wait until iOS 7.x which could be on hold indefinitely, or should they begin work on iOS 6.1.3 right now? Let us know your thoughts.
