  • 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!

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.
      One test we could do is try some of the methods to respring on a stock device and see what happens to the usage. I'm gonna try, will report back.

      Fantastic. I look forward to hearing the results. If it IS an iOS introduced thing - you can bet Apple will fix it for us then.

      Will also test this on a iPhone 2G I have on 3.1.3 jailbroken and a iPhone 3G I have on 4.2.1 jailbroken and see what resprings do there.

      First tests in. Tested with iPod Touch 5G on 6.1.2 no jailbreak.
      Used stifle stand to hide newstand in a folder. This allows me to open that folder, click newstand which triggers a respring with no jailbreak required.
      Findings:
      1: Usage stats went from 4 minutes standby 1 minute usage to - standby and -usage after the respring. Proof that the jailbreak is not the cause of the battery usage details getting wiped out after a respring.
      2: Interestingly the little dimming bug we have found when respringing also happened while respringing on this non-jailbroken device. So that is another "bug" we can say is not caused by the jailbreak.

      Working on the older firmware resprings now, going is SLOW with them lol, I don't know how we used to use these old devices sometimes.

      Results for iPhone 2G:
      Jailbroken on 3.1.3. Only winterboard installed.
      Before winterboard respring: Usage was normal, showed a few minutes.
      After respring: Usage stats both read -
      So on 3.1.3 this same battery usage "bug" is present.

      Results for iPhone 3G:
      jailbroken on 4.2.1 only winterboard installed.
      Before respring battery usage stats normal, showed a few minutes
      After respring battery usage stats read -
      So on 4.2.1 the same battery usage "bug" is present.

      I will say that on 3.1.3 I tried a sbsettings respring first and the usage stats were not affected. So this leads me to not all resprings are created equally. There are probably a few different methods of respringing that has been used over the years, obviously at least one of these cause battery usage to crap out. What could explain why you didn't see this "bug" until recently is Saurik may have changed the method Winterboard uses to respring, and many others may have followed suit. All I know is using the winterboard respring affects the battery percentage the same on firmwares 3.1.3 - 6.1.2.

      Found this: http://theiphonewiki.com/wiki/Respring
      It's a little outdated (2010) but you can see 2 different methods of respringing here. Each could affect things differently. Now there may be more than just these 2 methods. So what we need to figure out is which methods of respring cause the usage "bug" and which don't. And if simply changing the ones that do is possible or not or are they using that method of respringing for a reason.

      Thank you, Simon. I'll keep reading. Like King expressed it seems more and more like developers need to change how respring works in their apps.

      Yup, seems that way. Unless they are having to use a specific type of respring for a reason.

      Yes, agreed. I stand corrected in my rant about it being an evasi0n problem. Living and learning. :-) iOS 6 seems to have changed a lot of the way certain basic functionalities of iPhone work. So the tweaks that the devs have developed in the past seem to be needing a lot more rewriting of the code this time. For example, jitteriness in the weather animations, brightness glitch after respring, battery stats gone after respring, et cetera.

      And are you noticing that simple scrolling up and down in a window like the settings menu is just jittery itself as wel after being jailbroken?

      And why is it that after I've been on the phone for a while when I take the phone off my face and try to hang up the hangup button doesn't work at all. It's like the whole screen is dead. I've experienced that through two jailbreaks now. Same thing happened in 5.1.1 and on a different phone. So I know it's iOS related.

      That brightness glitch happened on my iPod touch stock after the respring. I was surprised by that. It looks like it is more changes apple has made then what the jailbreak devs have done that is causing these issues. I guess the devs will just have to find ways to compensate for what apple has done. Or we just live with it. Been way worse in the past. I remember the 1.1.2 jailbreak, a bug in apples handling of phone numbers caused the phone app to crash when trying to dial a number if you Weren't using the phone on a official carrier. That was a case of a jailbreak that allowed people to actually fix an issue that apple had itself with the iPhone. I had a real tough time getting the number format fixed for the phone app just so I could use my phone. A little brightness and usage bug seems pretty trivial compared to that lol.

      I haven't noticed any jitteryness in the settings app. I probably don't have as many things installed as you though.

      That phone hanging thing after a call has happened to me a few times over the years with different phones, even when not jail broken. Just a phone app bug.

      Now here's some good battery specs finally. I think I'm getting things fine tuned for performance. This was a medium to medium heavy use day.
      PUSH off
      No BLUEtooth
      Sensible Location Services
      Sensible Notifications
      Brightness 55%. auto on

      @Simon/@WF,

      You guys crack me up. I don't understand half the stuff you're talking about but am enjoying the conversation.

      I wish their was a fix for the battery usage disappearing.

      Yep, uh-huh. That's what I did. Long hours at work really suck.

      So...anyone using any battery saving apps like BatteryDoctorPro or Battery Magic when charging their phones? I was but hadn't noticed anything different. I recently turned off Locations until I need it and changed getting email from fetch to manual and I noticed some improvement. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to get any battery usage readings after charging my phone even without any respring. I charged to 100% around 4pm yesterday and did not have to respring since then. At around 7:00 am this morning I check the battery usage and nothing shows.

      That's really odd. Even from 75% back to full charge always gets me back battery stats until I respring or reboot - then gone. But not right after a charge. I get stats every time. Weird.

      I've been searching Cydia and the AppStore to see if there is some third party app that will show the same usage information as the stock settings but I haven't found any. Some even show the battery temperature but nothing like "since the last charge".

      Any idea if re-jailbreaking would at least show some information without a respring? My settings seem to be frozen in time. Its kind of funny that what I consider a simple statistic can be fixed or found in third party battery app.
