  • Evasi0n 1.5.1 Released - Updates Included Cydia Package List


    The evad3rs have updated the evasi0n Web site with links to an updated version of the evasi0n jailbreak tool. The latest version of evasi0n is now version 1.5.1 – superseding version 1.5.

    The update simply adds more Cydia packages to the included Cydia package list that gets installed with Cydia when a device is jailbroken with evasi0n. This pre-primed version of Cydia was implemented to reduce traffic on the repository servers when devices are jailbroken.

    If you’re already jailbroken with evasi0n, there is no reason to re-jailbreak with the updated version evasi0n. The update to the tool is only meant for those who have not jailbroken yet. Those already jailbroken can already update their Cydia package lists by refreshing their sources in Cydia.

    The evasi0n jailbreak tool can be used to jailbreak untethered any iOS 6.0, iOS 6.0.1, iOS 6.0.2, iOS 6.1, iOS 6.1.1, or iOS 6.1.2 device. The download links to the updated jailbreak tool are included for you below:




    If you haven't jailbroken already, check out our guide on how to jailbreak with evasi0n.

      Definitely, and then multiply that reasonably tiny amount by the 23M total devices that were recorded jailbroken in the past month or so, and you get a relatively large number:

      Saurik: 14M iOS 6 Devices Are Currently Running Cydia

      Of course, that's not to say that all 23M people are refreshing at the same time, or that all those devices are as active as the last, but the bandwidth sure will add up significantly.

      But this is only for new jailbreaks. It's not like 23M people are going to be using this version. Probably a lot less than 1 million. Of course it was a good idea to include the package lists before those 16 million used Evasi0n. I just don't see the point since there isn't a big rush of people jailbreaking right now.

      As said in the article, people who are already jailbroken don't need this version.

      All the people currently jailbroken are still able to refresh their sources in Cydia, so they also account for bandwidth for repository servers.

      These preventative steps are baby steps for keeping the servers from being swamped. Yes, the jailbreak has been out for a while now. But assured, traffic is still reaching high levels.
