Earlier today when Apple released iOS 6.1.2, the first thought was whether they had fixed the evasi0n exploit. Fortunately the newest update was not to fix it but to bring some other patches like Exchange bug etc.
So evad3rs team analyzed and tested their tool on all the devices running on iOS 6.1.2 after making some modifications and this is the final product in the form of evasi0n version 1.4.
Here is the step by step guide to get the untethered iOS 6.1.2 jailbreak on iPhone 5, iPhone 4S, iPhone 3GS and other A5 / A4 powered devices.
