Lately, there hasn’t been much news about the iOS jailbreak. It seems that even developers have no idea anymore when a jailbreak will appear for new iOS devices and also iOS 6, and then we also have to deal with the “Dream JB” hoax that claimed a jailbreak for iOS 6 and all devices on December 22.
Fortunately, there are still a lot of people active in developing a jailbreak, and other tools that help you with that, yesterday brought iOS hacker iH8sn0w updated its popular f0recast application to version 1.4. The new version brings several new features, including the ability to see if your SHSH blobs are available on the servers of Cydia. These blobs instance you can use it again to downgrade an iOS firmware, though this unfortunately only works for older devices such as the iPhone 4 and iPhone 3GS.
The application is very useful if you want to see if you can jailbreak your device or not. But in addition it can also show whether your SHSH blobs are available on the Cydia server, there is a link to find all firmwares for your iOS device, it supports the latest devices like the iPhone 5, iPad 4 and iPad Mini, and can check whether an update is available.
In f0recast version 1.4, there are also a number of changes in the user interface, so you can now display what devices and iOS versions can be jailbroken, and can not for legal reasons be considered whether a device is unlocked.
