    I have a friend who is pulling his hair out. He was under the impression that he could have an untethered iPhone 4 6.1.3 jailbreak, but I'm having trouble seeing if that's the case or not.

    It looks like he could do a tethered jailbreak for sure (with redsn0w or sn0wbreeze), but what about untethered?

    If so, how? Which software? Anything special he needs to know? I'm currently trying to dig up info but if anyone knows and can answer, the quicker the better. It would be much appreciated.

    As far as I know, there is no way to jailbreak the iPhone 4 if it's on iOS 6.1.3

    You can do a tethered one but there is no untethered jailbreak for 6.1.3, sorry.

    ----------

    iPhone 4 can always be tethered jailbroken because it is a hardware exploit.

    There is a tethered jailbreak. No untethered one, though, and probably never will be as the evad3rs (team behind evasi0n) said that they are not working on an untethered jailbreak for 6.1.3 as they don't want to burn any exploits until iOS 7.

    Sorry for bumping an old thread.
    I am posting this here only to validate what i (think) know.

    My wife's iPhone 4 (iOS 5.1.1)is for some weird reason facing massive battery drain since last couple of days. We are trying to ascertain what might the cause. The phone is jailbroken but since last month we have not updated or added any new tweaks or even app store apps. So i am planning to run the phone in SAFE MODE and see if any jailbreak tweak is the culprit.

    But i might also plan to update the iOS version of her phone to iOS 6.1.3 (max possible for iPhone 4 as of now i guess). I read of iclarified about the tethered jailbreak of iPhone 4 on iOS 6.1.3. I am ok with the tethered JB.
    But wanted to ask that if i were to restart the phone untethered the only thing i would lose is the jailbreak tweaks and cydia access right ? Rest the phone will work as a stock iPhone ?
    In the event that some tweak causes me issues then how can i boot in safe mode to remove that tweak. In untethered i can hold volume+ and do it. In this case when it is booting tethered, i should be holding the UP button and letting the phone boot ?

    In the unlikely event that i wish to downgrade it to iOS 5.1.1, it is possible right ? Do i need SHSH blobs for that ?
    The iclarified tutorial about downgrading does not mentioned anything about SHSH blobs from what i see. Is that correct ?

    You need complete 5.1.1 SHSH to restore to that firmware.

    If you want to fix your battery issues (assuming your battery is not at the end of it's lifecycle) do a restore to 6.1.3, set up as new and do not restore to backup.

    You can use the tabs in iTunes to restore your content (only) if you back it up before restoring.

    Then re-jailbreak

    As per the battery info app, the cycle count of the battery stands at 650 or so. Is it near to end of cycle or it can still go well ahead ?

    I would think max capacity is a better indicator than max cycles. I've never looked at my battery specs mainly because I have never cared enough to bother. But I would imagine max capacity is a better indicator, no?

    As per that app, the max capacity is 1211 mAh.

    If Cydia doesn't already have your 5.1.1 SHSH blobs and you're currently on that firmware, you can use ifaith to dump the blobs

    I believe you need to semi-tether the device. If you only tether jailbreak the device, once it's off, you can not use it until you plug it into a computer and use redsn0w for example and click just boot

    Ok so if I have tethered jailbreak then I cannot use the phone at all by doing just normal restart (without computer) and getting into stock iOS?

    The phone will boot into a non-jailbroken state, but your jailbreak apps and a few core stock apps will not work.
