  • 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 Apple’s new iPhone 5, iPod touch 5G, fourth-generation iPad, and the iPad Mini. We’ve 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.

      It seems that most, if not all, of you don't seem to realize that Linux is what Devs use to create your tweax!!!!

      I'm pretty sure that nobody wants to feel "penalized" by running the unfortunate OS that would be last to get the jailbreak tool. Besides, I think everyone is forgetting that "we" the jailbreakers have control over traffic. Has anyone thought about having a little patience and self control by waiting until traffic subsides? Do we all HAVE to jailbreak on Sunday? We waited this long, will a couple of extra days really be that painful? I'm sure I"ll get tarred and feathered for that comment.

      And yes, I'm following my own advice and waiting until later next week. Patience must come with age. :-)

      Same here... Plus you forgot about the cydia being unresponsive because of the huge amount of traffic but im not waiting because of this, im waiting for next sunday coz next week i have midterms :/ and according to my experience, jailbreaking never takes 10 mins... Coz once i jailbreak i spend the rest if the day downloading awesome tweaks and themes plus next week, cydia will be running smoothly

      Guess you also have a tradition of sitting around and waiting while you are lagged and stuck, and then getting frustrated, and complaining about it here on modmyi!

      I think it also involves some sort of sexual favor to get on the beta team.

      And yet another good point. I too, would rather not be an after beta beta tester. :-) I have a feeling that the same people who inadvertently rushed out to get an OTA update against advice, will be the same people who are first to trample the website.

      The only reason I would care about jailbreak is for SIM card unlocking, do we have an idea when that might come true for 4S and 5?
