It is learned that night for several hours, users can downgrade the firmware on iOS 6.0.x and jailbreak. Information about this appeared in the Twitter developer nick iH8Sn0w.
Known jailbreak hacker circles said that due to technical failure at Apple, servers suddenly started signing firmware iOS 6.0, iOS 6.0.1 and iOS 6.0.2. This went on for several hours at night from Thursday to Friday. During this time, the owners of iPhone, iPod touch and iPad had the opportunity to downgrade the firmware to iOS 6.1.4 or iOS 7 beta on one of the earlier builds.
Why do users need to roll back to an outdated OS? The fact is that now existing jailbreak exploits work only on operating systems iOS 6.0-iOS 6.1.2. In particular, to carry out untethered jailbreak iOS 6.0.x, you can use Evasi0n.
Unfortunately, the “freebie” very quickly over. Several hours later, Apple has restored the correct operation of their servers and now downgrade is not possible.
Why did not allow the owners of iOS-devices to use the old firmware updates after it is understandable. The company does so for several reasons, among which is the protection of unlocking and jailbreaking, and the ability to increase data security. However, many believe that Apple needs to give its users a choice. If a person wants to consciously use the old OS, it should have such an opportunity.
