  • The evasi0n Jailbreak GUI is 68% Complete, Waiting On Linux


    Pod2g announced the evasi0n jailbreak tool last night and the evad3rs launched evasi0n.com, the soon-to-be download site for the jailbreak tool. The last we knew it, the GUI was being prepared for the jailbreak tool, however the Web site now shows that the Windows and Mac OS X versions of the tool have been completed and they are now working on the Linux tool. So the GUI is 68% complete (2/3 done).

    After the GUI is completed, the hackers plan to commence an internal private beta testing, likely amongst the hackers themselves, to help ensure that the jailbreak works correctly, and to hammer out any last-minute bugs or glitches that may still be present in the jailbreak in its current form.

    After the bugs and glitches have been hammered out, there will be nothing else standing in the way of the release. That being said, itís a good idea to begin preparing your iOS device(s) for the jailbreak before you actually perform it. We at ModMyi have put together a short and optional guide that you can follow to help ensure that your jailbreak will go as smoothly and perfectly as possible. Check it out!

    The jailbreak is expected to be out within a week, possibly Sunday, so keep your eyes peeled and stay tuned to ModMyi for the latest!

      You bet they're testing the jailbreak while the one programming the Linux application programs the Linux application. I'm sure they're not wasting any time.
      Actually, yeah, there will be waiting either way, I get it. What I really want is some of my other favorite tweaks to be updated for iOS 6 (like FolderIcons, complete Springtomize (been using beta and still some features not working)). I wish I never upgraded to 6 until all of my favorite tweaks were ready. I miss you 5.1.1!

      A completely new version of Sprngtomize will likely need to be written for iOS 6. I don't think Filippo has any plans to update Springtomize 2 for iOS 6. Most likely Springtomize 3 coming soon.

      It can't crash the P2P network

      Download it with your favorite torrent client or newsgroup. They usually post the links to servers and p2p.

      Hopefully everyone here at ModMyi appreciates the care they put into making sure everything works properly for everyone under every possible situation.
      I'm great full for what they do and will donate as usuall , but a status update earlier would of been nice. As everyone was loosing hope. And it seems like pod2g came late in the game as they found 2 or 3 exploits as soon as he put his head into it. That kinda sounds like a little fighting among the dev team.

      Jailbreaking IOS 6.1 is not so easy as evad3rs believed. I assume that 68% will be there for some time or is a big and ugly fake, fake, fake!!!!!

      They should just skip Linux. More people use Windows and OS X than Linux on a computer anyways. It's holding back everyone else.

      They've had it for days, the problem is that they've only had it for the beta version of ios 6.1, converting it to public version is always a problem, specially since they've said that it will be a universal JB, with some ATV exceptions.

      Ok now I'm suspicious, 75% but now they are starting Windows and OSX testing, but I thought those were done and Linux was the only one left.

      Why suspicious?!?! They said they were working on Linux and were going to start the beta starting. Now they've started testing; what's the worry?

      because 68% said that applications for Windows and OSX were ready, and the only thing left was Linux and beta testing, so by that I understood that Win and OSX were done and only Linux remained before the release.

      but don't get me wrong, it's not that I don't think there working on it, just that I think they might not meet that Sunday deadline, though they haven't really given a date, but more or less they've left hints here and there.

      I see! No, they were saying that they had the Win/OSX jailbreak program completed but then they need to test the jailbreak w/ both systems to make sure the program runs smooth. Does that make sense?
