Apple Patches Evasi0n Untethered Jailbreak Exploit

The usual cat  and mouse game between Apple and vast majority of jailbreaker and hackers have started again. Evasi0n was the tool that brought about untethered jailbreak to all iDevices running iOS 6.0 - 6.1.2 for a while and seems as though the cat & mouse game ended. However new reports especially from popular member of the evad3rs team David Wang (p0sixninja) says that those that want to keep their untethered jailbreak should stay away from updating to the upcoming iOS 6.1.3 firmware.
