Saurik: 14M iOS 6 Devices Are Currently Running Cydia
Jay Freeman (Saurik) Saturday morning shared some interesting numbers about the iOS 6 jailbreak, which pod2g
then Tweeted for the public to see.
According to the iOS hacker, 14,051,500 unique iOS devices running iOS 6 have been spotted running Cydia since the release of evasi0n. In addition, in just the last 30 days, 23 million iOS devices on all iOS versions have been spotted running Cydia. Those still jailbroken on non-iOS 6 firmwares are likely using older iOS devices that can’t have iOS 6 installed on them, or they’re just not ready to upgrade to iOS 6 yet because they’re happy with their older jailbreak.
14 million people is a lot – this number definitely lays to rest any rumors stating that jailbreaking is "dead;" a rumor that ran rampant from those losing patience as we waited for the evasi0n jailbreak to drop this year. A large amount of people still appear to have a large, and even growing, interest in having full personal control over their iOS devices.
Since the initial evasi0n release in the beginning of February
, the evad3rs have been hard at work in keeping the jailbreak as bug-free as possible, as the tool has been updated many times (latest version is 1.5), which since the initial release have fixed multiple issues, such as Weather application crashing, longer than expected boot times, support for iOS 6.1.1 and iOS 6.1.2, and more.
Are you one of those 14 million people happily jailbroken with evasi0n?
