  • Team of iOS Hackers Call Themselves the "evad3rs"


    Remember the Dream Team that was assembled to get the iPhone 4S and iOS 5 jailbroken? It seems that the league of jailbreak hackers have come up with another name for themselves as they continue their efforts towards an untethered iOS 6 jailbreak. They now call themselves, the evad3rs.

    The lineup of hackers in the team dubbed evad3rs is slightly different from the Dream Team, however. The lineup includes iOS hackers pod2g, planetbeing, MuscleNerd, and pimskeks. All of these names should ring a bell, as they've been a huge part of the jailbreak community for so long.

    Pod2g clarifies in the Tweet who the members of the evad3rs group are to help eliminate confusion on who is working on the iOS 6 untethered jailbreak so that donations go to their right places and not to scammers trying to take advantage of the situation. At the same time, pod2g states that the team is not accepting donations at this point in time.

    Pod2g and planetbeing have announced progress on two different fronts, one being that they have found themselves two potentially useful vulnerabilities in one day, and the other saying that the future is looking bright for jailbreaking and urging the release of iOS 6.1.

    We continue to offer positive support for our hackers and wish them the best of luck in their new alliance.

      It's possible I just have a bad phone. I may make an apple appointment this weekend.

      Here is a video of my Iphone 5 on a HD video.

      Here is my iPad mini

      Just look at how slow my iPhone buffers. The iPad buffer is well ahead of the video. Where as the video on the iPhone catches up wkth the buffer almost immediately lol.

      Very weird. But the only true test is to go to someone else's network with both devices and do the same test. Actually to prove anything to the Apple Store they'll insist on you showing it to them on their network. If you can show the same difference between ip5 and iPad mini in-store they'll give you a new ip5. That's the true test. Both devices IN the Apple Store on their network.

      Well knowing how the apple store works i just took off my icarbon from around the band of the phone. I haven't had a single video stop to buffer yet. Lol

      Been following this interesting convo. I have a dual band network with all most all the same stuff and all works fine no buffering. My IP5 has an alluminum case on it and plays fine. Just thought I would throw that out since you mentioned the I carbon band. My not be be nothin to do bout nothin.
      Good luck.

      Yep. Antenna strength is everything. I've heard though that the newer "N" dual band routers put out a stronger signal as well which could more easily penetrate your i-carbon shield. I noticed I was not able to receive the Wi-Fi signal at my job in my particular office because there was a giant HVAC air handler between the wifi transmitting antenna and my phones in my office. As soon as I got my iPhone 5 I can now receive the Wi-Fi in that office. That's because the transmitter for Wi-Fi in my iPhone 5 is stronger than the one was in my iPhone 4S.

      This would also end up true for when you get a stronger Wi-Fi transmitter I would think. Getting a dual band Wi-Fi router at your house will definitely help all this. Don't you think?

      And for what it's worth I was able to play HD video with no buffering on my 4S on a 12MB downstream easily. 12MB is plenty fast for HD video stream.
      Maybe the iPhone 5 is trying to load 1080p video and the iPhone 4S is trying to load 720p video. That would make a world of difference in buffer speed.

      YouTube from Google takes into account what device you're using and what network you're connected to. On Wi-Fi, it tries to play the highest quality possible, because it assumes Wi-Fi is always fast and uncapped. Cellular, on the other hand, videos end up on medium or lower quality to save data and to compensate for possible slower speeds than Wi-Fi (a problem that LTE has helped solve, btw).

      Except if you miss the cat5 cable hidden in the ceiling from your router to your TV (before I had Apple TV) Drove me crazy with Netflix till I had that duh moment drivin down the road. Doesn't matter how fast your router is if ya have a cat5 cable. Lmao

      C'mon 6.1.

      Another valid point, but it will still get you 100mb/sec. Should be plenty fast enough.

      Yeah, but the iPhone 5 is the closest thing to 1080p that Apple has come out with yet, so if your iPhone 5 videos are loading in 1080p where applicable, and your iPhone 4S is loading videos in 720p where applicable, this could be a reason why it's loading slow. Unfortunately, the app has no way of distinguishing video quality manually. One of the features I want to come in the YouTube app in the future.

      Try Jasmine and see if you have the same results.

      But Anthony's point would still explain it, Suby. Even if it's all Wifi - your iP5 is trying to load the video at 1080 where your 4S is automatically only loading 720 - because of it being a 4S. Anthony's explanation explains it perfectly to me. Am I missing something?

      LOL, NO!

      Not at all! Thanks for posting it.
      You did say you weren't sure if it was real, and a few people checked into it and our best guess is that its not real.
      The guy that posted it on "the other site" however, could have checked a bit more carefully.
      The quote HE pulled from jailbreakers dot eu or gdeluxe dot com was bogus.
      Do a google search for that same text with "6.0" or "6.1" instead of "6.0.1" and you'll see the exact same announcement repeated word-for-word, posted several weeks ago.

      Most of the sites that quote this release are clickbait scammers, or scammers selling a "jailbreak solution". The-other-iphone-forum obviously isn't a scam site.
      Redmond Pie would be another place with tons of bogus and useless info, that also contains valuable and (occasionally) exclusive content. I'll make fun of them, too. But give credit where it's due. And i-f.net is much closer to MMi than Redmond Pie, imo.

      Why would the iPhone 4S stream in less quality? Lol. It would stream in the quality setting available for your connection. Because both phones are on the same network they should be playing the same video at the same quality

      I don't think the iPhone 5 would play in 1080p. I mean 720p is 1280720 and the iPhone doesn't meet that. I'd say the iPhone plays in 720 over 1080. Could be wrong really no way to tell.
