Quick Steps to jailbreak to iOS 6.1.x

These are the main steps to jailbreak iOS 6.1.x (before 6.1.3).

They are meant to serve as a reminder of certain important steps that may be commonly missed by jailbreak-ers who skip the README files or detailed guides.

It is not meant to be a detailed guide for every step, which can be found elsewhere.
  • Unencrypt iTunes backup (if encrypted)
  • Disable PIN lock (if enabled)
    • Disable corporate Microsoft Exchange account(s) that enforces PIN/passcode lock (if necessary)
      (Removing the Exchange configuration is not necessary, just disable by turning to "Off" the toggles for Mail, Contacts, Calendars and Reminders)
  • Backup iOS device to iTunes
  • Jailbreak to evasi0n
  • Re-enable Exchange account(s)
  • Re-encrypt iTunes backup
