The possibility of an iOS 6.1.3 untethered jailbreak is looking more and more likely. We recently heard iOS hacker Joshua Hill, aka p0sixninja, had "amazing things coming soon" to the world of jailbreak. The iOS 6.1.3 untethered jailbreak isn't here just yet, but the newly announced OpenJailbreak project could be a way of solving that. Even though this isn't quite the "bigger than jailbreak" project Hill talked of before, the #openjailbreak idea is still a significant one. The potential iOS 6.1.3 untethered jailbreak is sure to be affected, along with possibly the iOS 7 one.
Ok, I hate redsn0w, I hate sn0wbreeze, and I hate 6.1.3. I'm ready to get this #openjailbreak off the ground

p0sixninja's OpenJailbreak project provides a place for people to find the open source code Hill uses in creating the jailbreaks. Instead of having bits and pieces of his code splayed around within other people's projects (e.g.: redsn0w, sn0wbreeze), p0sixninja wants one place to find everything he's created -- should a hacker or developer want to look at something for themselves. The openness this would provide could allow new jailbreaks to be developed more quickly than having the work relegated to the standard Jay Freeman, MuscleNerd, pod2g, etc. crew. Many lost hope when the evad3r team mentioned they don't plan on releasing an iOS 6.1.3 untethered jailbreak, waiting for a major release instead. While the news is tragic, iOS 7 is right around the corner -- scheduled for a fall release. It's still unclear what Joshua Hill's "bigger than jailbreak" project could be. Some have hinted at a bootrom exploit: allowing specific devices to be jailbroken no matter the software version. Time will tell if the OpenJailbreak project will lead to an iOS 6.1.3. untethered jailbreak.
