  • iOS 6.1.1 Has Been Released for iPhone 4S, evasi0n Will Be Updated Soon


    Apple Monday released iOS 6.1.1 for iPhone 4S to the public. The first beta of iOS 6.1.1 was released to developers last Wednesday. The update addresses cellular issues that were problematic in terms of performance and stability for some users. It’s a small update, and if you rely on a jailbreak, you shouldn’t update to it – yet.

    iOS hacker planetbeing just announced via Twitter Monday afternoon that iOS 6.1.1 for the iPhone 4S does not fix the evasi0n jailbreak and that the evasi0n jailbreak tool will be updated with support for iOS 6.1.1 in a while. According to the hacker, the jailbreak still runs fine on iOS 6.1.1.

    That being said, if you want to update your iPhone 4S to iOS 6.1.1, you can… AFTER… the hackers have had a chance to update the evasi0n jailbreak tool. We will be sure to let you know when that happens. Until then, we recommend sitting tight on whatever iOS 6 firmware you might have that’s already jailbroken.

    The iOS 6.1.1 update for the iPhone 4S doesn't have the improvements to the Maps application like the beta did and these improvements will likely come in a different update. It is recommended you stay away from this "different update," until hackers have had a chance to dissect it and confirm whether or not it is jailbreakable.

      If you are in a low LTE area, it'll suck up your battery. If you are in a low 3G coverage, that'll suck up your battery.
      Well if Apple says so then it must be right.

      I know this update isn't for the iP5, but I must say my battery life didn't seem to change at all going from 6.0.2 to 6.1.

      i did -- well, i have a mac, but i searched every possible location in finder (external drive, mac partition, etc.). no dice. like i said, can't find it for the life of me. i doubt anyone else is coming to this thread, but if so, and you happen to know the path to the .ipsw file (on a mac), please share.

      FWIW, I'm on 6.1 on a 4S 64GB (Black), using a GSM carrier, and jail-broken, and I haven't haven't had any issues with cellular connectivity, be it data or voice. Is there a specific condition that the problem is supposed to trigger in?
