  • Pod2g Announces the evasi0n iOS 6 Jailbreak - Coming Soon!


    iOS hacker pod2g has publicly announced the evasi0n iOS 6 jailbreak. In his Tweet, he references the evad3rs’ official Web site, evasi0n.com. The Web site includes a Mac OS X-like loading bar that tells us the status of the jailbreak, which as of this writing says, “We are in the process of finishing the GUI. Come back soon!”



    When released, the evasi0n iOS 6 jailbreak will support iOS 6.0, iOS 6.0.1, iOS 6.0.2, and iOS 6.1. It will also work on all of Apple’s latest iOS devices, including the iPhone 5, iPod touch 5G, iPad Mini, and fourth-generation iPad. A full list of the supported devices can be seen in our post here.

    From what it looks like, the evasi0n jailbreak tool will support Mac OS X, Windows, and Linux. It needs to go through private beta testing after the GUI of the jailbreak tool is completed, which means only a select handful of people, most likely the hackers themselves, will get to test out the jailbreak before the official public release.

    To use the evasi0n jailbreak tool, you will need all the following requirements:
    • 5 minutes of your time!
    • A computer, running Windows (XP minimum), Mac OS X (10.5 minimum) or Linux (x86 / x86_64)
    • An iPhone, iPad or iPod running iOS 6.0 through 6.1 (you may check in Settings / General / About => Version)
    • A USB cable to connect the device to the computer

    Continue to refresh the evasi0n.com Web page for updates. We will continue to update you on the latest.

      Well - oops.. My 4S 'is' missing 6.0.2 now that I look again... But the main point is - that any 'main jailbreakable' iOS that I've ever needed has been backed up automatically by Cydia. None of us will ever need 6.0.2 again for any practical reasons. The point it - the TinyUmbrella 'hurry up' thing, TO ME, is too hyped.

      If you see my 3GS example above cydia missed the 4.3.3 SHSH for it. 4.3.3 was an important SHSH to have at the time since 4.3.4 and 4.3.5 never received untethered jailbreaks.

      No, it's not. 6.0.2 was only for iPhone 5 and iPad Mini remember.

      Not hyped at all. It is the safe and prudent thing to do. Always better to be safe then sorry.

      I never used to do it and doubt there will be much use for SHSH blobs on A5/A5X/A6 devices unless there is going to be another re-restore feature in RedSn0w. I never used to do it though and as a result I have no 5.0 SHSH even though I'm sure I jailbroke it not that this matters much.

      Ah - okay, Simon! This is huge! You always educate me a little further. It's very good to know we can upload ("now-older") SHSH's for a current un-jailbreakable device before the signing window closes on those older ones. BUT - my point still stands - that you'd never need the older ones once a jailbreak is promised out. I tend to see the "back up SHSH quick!" warnings before a jailbreak is ready to drop. So in this case - people saving their 6.0.2 blobs is a total waste - since you'd never need them ever again after 6.1 drops. NOW - when 6.1.1 is on the horizon - check Cydia and if it hasn't already saved 6.1 - then by all means manually get them to Cydia with the Redsn0w method.

      Thanks for the education --- again.. ;-/

      I always save them manually just to be safe. You can never state that you won't need them in the future, as you just never know, until you need it and don't have it.

      Yup, you are helping to prove the point to newdestiny that cydia is not infallible. Always best to do it yourself as well.
      I agree, we don't know yet how much use SHSH will be on a iPhone 5 but it is better to have them than not have them, just in case a situation like the 5.1.1 re-restores presents itself again.

      Yes, when iOS5 first came out people were saying that the blobs were useless because of the aptickets. But look what happened there.

      Agreed. Never rely on automated processes. Things can always go wrong. Best to do it yourself.

      So what your really saying is:

      Make a backup, make a backup of your backup, make a backup of your backup you made a backup of :P

      The great debate can continue here: The Great Debate

      Any other posts in here should be about the jailbreak.

      Really?

      Anyway, who has been refreshing the pages like a maniac all day. Sometimes on my days off I'm really unproductive. Can't wait for this.

      Some are saying there uploading the program? Would they let it go under maintenance? For what reason would hackers have their jailbreak site down for? Has it to be the jailbreak

      The site works perfectly for me still. Hasn't gone down at all. Still showing 68% DONE though.
