  • Evasi0n 1.4 Released With Support for iOS 6.1.2


    The evad3rs have released evasi0n version 1.4 Tuesday evening with support for iOS 6.1.2. The update is available for Mac OS X, Windows, and Linux and can be downloaded from the evasi0n Web site.

    iOS 6.1.2 was released Tuesday afternoon to fix an Exchange calendar bug that quickly drains the iOS device's battery life. Fortunately, the update did not patch the popular evasion iOS 6 untethered jailbreak.

    If youíre planning on updating to iOS 6.1.2 to fix any issues you might be having with Exchange, you can download the firmware through iTunes and perform a DFU mode restore to the iOS 6.1.2 firmware. You will not be able to update to iOS 6.1.2 OTA (over the air) if you are jailbroken, and we donít recommend OTA if you arenít jailbroken yet. You should follow this guide to get your device prepared for the jailbreak on iOS 6.1.2.

    There shouldnít be any issues with jailbreak tweaks not being compatible with iOS 6.1.2, since itís pretty much the same firmware as iOS 6.1 with a few minor bug fixes. With that being said, update to your heartís content!

      Not sure if I misunderstood this.

      I just uninstalled SBSettings and Activator is still installed. Activations I set up prior to uninstalling SBSettings still work. I tried setting a new activation method (tap and hold the status bar) to Quick Compose a text using BiteSMS and nothing happens. I also tried a Swipe method...baddabing...still nothing. Does SBSetting need to reside on the device to use Activator?

      No, it doesn't have to be on the device for activator to work. You may be experiencing bugs with activator.

      Actually, it was a bug in my brain. I had uninstalled BiteSMS and then reinstalled it and the "Use Activator" setting reset to off.

      Simon. Got any tips/tricks for getting out of Winterboard without loss of battery stats? Different than the Cydia trick you taught me - you can't get to the Springboard after a Winterboard change without it auto-respringing. So I just try to use my 'activator' key step (double cik sleep button - like you) but, from Winterboard, even that action kills battery specs. Can you confirm my finding? All other settings where I need respring (Iconoclasm, etc) all preserve my battery stats as long as I use my Activator keystroke. But not leaving Winterboard. Any thoughts?

      In activator go under the option that says "In application" and choose the double press sleep button to respring there too.

      Once you assign a keystroke in Activator it's assigned for all functions; In Application, Anywhere, etc. I set the original in "Anywhere". So it's already assigned in In Application as well.

      Any other ideas?

      What I'm saying is it was already set, Simon. When I went into In Application - the double tap sleep trigger was already assigned to Respring. Still kills battery stats. There's nothing to change in that window. Whatever you set in the "Anywhere" window sets it for all other scenarios.

      Does it respring when you double press the sleep button after selecting whatever change in winter board you want to select?

      Edit: reread your first post about this. I will try it tomorrow after a full charge and let you know if it does the same for me.

      What about powering the phone off after selecting your theme?

      Now THAT's taking a 'work around' to another whole level of "pain in the azz" - ya feel me? I change stuff in WB 20 times a day, Simon.. Lol!! Remember, bro, 90% of us here are themers! Lol!! We enter WB "often". Reboot after every change??? How bout we get Planetbeing and the boys to get this fixed for us. It's Evasi0n that makes Respring kill the stats. I'm getting weary of this. But thanks for your help, bro. Really!

      Oy with the percentages again lol. You think only 10% of people on MMi are not themers? Not even close. No arguing about it though. You can think what you want there

      You're reading too quickly tonight, Simon. Read it again. I said 90% ARE themers. You misread my first post about In Application being overridden by Anywhere mode in Activator and now you misread this one too. Lol!! Slow down bro.

      And yeah.. I did the % thing just to get your reaction. !! Lol!!!

      Do a google search for "iphone respring battery usage". You will see this has been happening long before evasion. Since at least 4.1. I think it has more to do with iOS itself and what a respring does as far as clearing things than the jailbreak causing it.

      No misread on this one. Just forgot to put the "not". It's there now.

      As I mentioned before a stock phone can't respring, Simon. At least WE can't trigger it. Battery stats NEVER get wiped on stock . And a respring on 4.2.1 and 5.1.1 never once killed battery stats for me ever. Never on any of my 3 phones. So you're just dead wrong on this one my friend. IOS6 introduced something into the equation that Evasi0n didn't anticipate. And not just them. The makers of respring tweaks need to figure it out too. It is MOST DEFINTELY something new after iOS 6 jailbroken. That I have lots of evidence for in many screen shots of battery life post many resprings in 4.2.1 and 5.1.1 days.

      No misread on this one. Just forgot to put the "not". It's there now.
      You ARE JOKING - right? At a forum called MOD MY IPHONE.. You think less than 90% people here are modding their phones which requires respring after respring??? What good stuff r u smokin tonight, mon?

      You guys are forgetting one thing here. The respring in WB clears specific caches. Not all resprings cear the same caches. Even the "cleaner" tweaks, will clear different caches. Unfortunately, you would need to write your own tweak to clear all the correct caches. There are a couple of caches now that need to be added to WB respring.

      I really don't see a full proof work around for this.

      Did you google that phrase? If you do you may find that I am far from "dead wrong".

      Re: your percentage, I'm just saying there are more than 10% of people on MMi that are not themers ie. don't use winterboard. I know members that are on MMi that don't even jailbreak.

      That's what I'm trying to say. I don't think this battery usage thing is directly caused by the jailbreak at all. I think it is just caused by how iOS handles resprings and what they do. The fact that he says we only respring when jail broken is irrelevant. There is no need to respring when stock.

      Yeah. It's hardly a widespread problem, Simon. There must be something unique about their phones. Tell the truth - have YOU ever had resprings before ios6 clear battery stars? Not me. Not Anthony either. He's ticked about this too. If it was a minute issue in the past - which is what I'm gathering from the google reads then its A HUGE problem now. King's point is interesting here. Hope he elaborates.

      Well.. what a waste. The forums with the vast majority of participation and post count are theming and modding threads. You can read those stats as a mod as readily as I can see them, You even have mod tools that I wouldn't - at least not here. .. At MY forum I have those same tools. ..

      Sure it can. In a number of ways.
      Changing the language will do one type of respring.
      Another can be found here: http://www.idownloadblog.com/2013/01...-jailbreaking/

      I agree. The majority of traffic on this site is the theme sections. Just not 90%.

      Of course not. But when you assign the problem to iOS - then it would present itself in stock too, no? I agree there's an interaction between iOS6 cache clear protocols and what the respring tweaks are doing. With King's input - I may now agree it's not Evasi0n. Maybe. Not sure. All I know is I never lost a single battery stat jail broken since 4.2.1. This is a new problem for the vast majority of us. I'm glad the Activator workaround is working for everything but a Winterboard respring.
      And I'll do some more reading as you suggest. I'm interested to find out why I've never experienced it before iOS6.

      Oh good. We agree. Simon, look up in an American idiom dictionary what the term "90% of.." means. It simply is an expression that means "the vast majority". Don't go all literal on me, bro.
