  • The evasi0n iOS 6 Jailbreak is 75% Done, Linux Being Worked On, Private Testing Begins


    Just yesterday, the iOS 6 jailbreak team known as evad3rs had updated the evasi0n Web site showing that the evasi0n jailbreak tool had been completed for Windows and Mac OS X, however it was being worked on for Linux. The Web site, at the time, showed a 68% progress indicator, and told us that the private beta testing would be the next step.

    This morning, the progress bar has budged to 75%. According to the evasi0n Web site, the Linux tool is still being worked on, however private beta testing for the Mac OS X and Windows versions of the tools has commenced. We can assume that the private beta testing is only being made available to the hackers themselves, to ensure that nothing is leaked ahead of time.

    After the private beta testing has finished, an extended beta testing will begin, as the evasi0n Web site indicates. Pod2g hinted on his Twitter this morning that progress was being made on the tool an that it will be out soon. He also made us aware of a Reddit post from planetbeing, where planetbeing explains the importance of ensuring that the GUI is done right before releasing it to the public.

    When released, the evasi0n jailbreak will support iOS 6.0, iOS 6.0.1, iOS 6.0.2, and iOS 6.1 on all of the devices that can run it, including Apples new iPhone 5, iPod touch 5G, fourth-generation iPad, and the iPad Mini. Weve put together a short guide so you can get your iOS device(s) ready for the jailbreak, and a list of jailbreak tweaks you should check out when the jailbreak debuts.

      I was right there with you until I caved in a bought a piece of crap MacBook Pro. But now I'll continue I jailbreak on my Mac to make it easier. And I will be waiting and constantly refreshing their page as early as I can to as late as I can Sunday for it. I will also be doing my usual YouTube video post on how to do it for the few who are too lazy to figure it out themselves (when it will probably be a one button click again).

      Sounds like you got stuck with a dinosaur or low-end version of the computer.

      I couldn't wait for the iOS 5 jailbreak so did what I shouldn't have :P

      I downloaded a version of OSX designed to be virtualised on Windows and jailbroke that way although for obvious reasons I will not discuss specifics

      Been trying to follow, but just so much to follow.

      Thanks.

      Or you could just run os x in a virtual machine like I do for the rare occasions it comes in handy.

      The internet is a source of free flowing information which can help people improve their lives when used properly. Ads are used by large corporations to subvert this tools and take advantage of less informed individuals for their own profit. Advertising is disgusting when you fully understand the psychological manipulation behind it.

      Does everyone know that Linux and osx are unix programs? They're practically brothers.
