  • 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.

This is all just speculation of course
      That makes sense atleast

      Over on the 'other most popular iPhone forum' - Simon's counterpart ( a moderator over there) very well spoken and trustworthy with his info just posted that an untethered jailbreak for '6.0.1' will be posted this weekend. Is that just flat wrong compared to all the tweeting that's been happening from Planetbeing and ipod2? Is there some 'hot shot' hacker that's nailed a jailbreak for 6.0.1 only without the help of the dev teams? Curious if anyone's heard about this or is it just another 'false alarm'?

      Thanks!

      Totally false. It's not an official announcement; most likely speculation. Especially since the hackers themselves have said/implied they are waiting for the iOS 6.1 release.

      If you have not heard it from any of the four hackers listed, it should not even be considered.

      Wasn't the dream team the people that claim to have a jailbreak but then change to "raise awareness" about jailbreak scams

      No, the Dream Team was the hacker alliance effort that brought us the first jailbreak for the iPhone 4S.

      That's what I thought. This guy over at the 'largest iPhone forum' beside ModMyI is such a trusted person - never given to hype. That's why I was 'taken aback'. Well I guess we'll see. LOL!!. It wouldn't make any sense to release for 6.0.1 only anyway. That would leave SO many people stranded at this point since the prevailing wisdom has been to go ahead and update to 6.0.2...

      Thanks Anthony.

      Dream JB was just an idiot that wanted attention.

      Unfortunately when they accept donations before hand it opens up people's entitlements. For instance, a lot will donate and then feel there donation entitles them to get the jail break. If it takes to long these entitled people feel as if they spent money why are they waiting.

      Also what if 6.1 throws a wrench in the jailbreak and it takes longer? Or maybe doesn't happen at all.

      Unfortunately people (not all) have forgot what a donation is a bout. Donating is what it is. To donate some money to someone with out strings. You donate to recognize hard work and appreciation. A lot of people donate to get something in return.

      It's sad

      Has anyone noticed that their iPhone 5 wifi speeds are slower than their 4S? I was hitting 30Mbps on my 4S and rarely get over 20Mbps on my iPhone 5. I was hoping updating to 6.0.2 from 6.0 would have corrected the issue but it did not.

      I thought the 5 was supposed to have faster wifi than the 4S?

      EDIT: Read your post wrong.. Didn't see you said wifi.

      My wifi strengths are about the same on 4S and 5. Where did you read that they should be better on iP5?

Lower than that if you're still on 4G.

      My videos still buffer like a mofo on my 5 when on wifi. It really is annoying. And yes I do notice my wifi speed tests are slower on my 5 then 4s. Quite annoying

      I get exact same speedtest results on my 4S and 5. Is Apple aware of this issue with "some" ip5es? Could there be differences in the router type you use? I'm on an "N" speed router not a "G".. Don't know if that makes any diff..
