  • The evasi0n Web Site Now Displaying 80% Complete, Private Testing for All Tools


    The evasi0n iOS 6 jailbreak is coming along slowly, but surely. This morning, the Web site was updated saying that the tool was about 75% complete and that private testing began, however the Linux tool wasn’t completed yet.

    Now, the evasi0n Web site displays that the tool is about 80% done, and also shows that the jailbreak is in private testing for Mac OS X, Windows, and Linux included. This indicates that the Linux tool has indeed been finished and that the private testing of the jailbreak can be pushed into high gear for all three versions of the tool.

    The private testing is assumed to be only between the hackers themselves, as to keep the jailbreak from being leaked early. After the private testing is finished, a broader scope of testing that the Web site calls “extended testing” can begin.

    As the jailbreak for iOS 6 continues to come closer and closer to completion, the rumored release date of this Super Bowl Sunday for the jailbreak seems likely. In preparation for the iOS 6 jailbreak release, we’ve posted an optional and short guide on how to prepare your iOS device(s) for the jailbreak. We’ve also put together a list of great jailbreak tweaks that are compatible with iOS 6.

    Developers are frantically working to update their jailbreak applications and tweaks for iOS 6 compatibility, so if you’re still on iOS 5.1.1 for the sake of jailbreak tweak compatibility, we recommend you update, as tweaks will be updated in due time.

    Fingers crossed... are you excited for the iOS 6 jailbreak called evasi0n?

      and lastly, who the hell here uses a linux box to jailbreak?

      i love the fact about evasi0n devoting their time fr us, but as well as hate the fact about their commercial breaks before the big release.

      hope you all don't mind. im excited as much as you are


      Cheers.



      Thanks antony. According to latest update, the testing has been done
      It's not taunting you for crying out loud. Last time The devs kept there mouth shut. I actually like knowing what's going on. They said there releasing it Sunday. So be happy for Sunday

      I agree with you about the 4s...

      I'm leaving mine permanently on 5.1.1 until they find a way for the A5X to restore back to any iOS with blobs, I can always re-restore it back to 5.1.1 in case anything happens

      I agree, I've been unlocking & jailbreaking since iPhone2.

      A nice site updated daily, teams working together systematically. A schedule which I hope they are able to keep to. An outstanding new IOS and jailbroken within 10 days.

      Compared to past jailbreaks.... what was it 4.2.1? out by Christmas, into the New Year, was it February before it finally was released.

      It's always been a mess, this is the best one yet so those working on it deserve a round of applause once it's released.

      Agreed! I will come to you if I need 5.1.1 files! The main reason I'm leaving my 4S on 5.1.1 is I've been working on my own WB theme since well 5.0.1 AND it still isn't finished...I think it will be more cross compatible to leave it on 5.1.1 and my GF's 4S on 6.1 now, I can always JB that down the track! Oh well if she will let me! Haha.

      Why is everyone updating... The devs said that the jailbreak would work from 6.0 til 6.1 so its not that important to update... Keeping in mind that the new update didnt really bring much new stuff ( maybe not for me ) i just think that if your phone is fine the way it is and if those updates are not really important for u then maybe u should leave your phone the way it is... Coz many people are complaining about battery life issues after the update...

      well I'm only missing my themes and some cydia tweaks, specially the whole infini line so I really don't mind waiting a couple of hours more, besides I'm getting the iPhone 5 in 2 weeks so I'm not going to do too much to my, very trusted, iPhone 4.

      Advanced users are forgetting to warn users who depends on ultransn0w to unlock to stay off the update until pwntools and sn0wbreeze are updated to handle creating custom firmware to preserve baseband

      The reason my best friend and I updated to 6.1 is because Apple has a tendency to release another update JUST as the jailbreak is released, I know that 6.0 6.0.1 6.0.2 will be able to JB but they do updates for a reason. I was having wifi issues when streaming videos on 6.0.1 and on 6.1 its beautiful. watching something on isteam right now.

      Besides trying to wreck jailbreaks apple also fixes issues in updates... JUST saying as you did ask

      This is absolutely amazing- I mean the whole JB process, and how easy it is to do once they're released. 6.1 released, a little over a week ago, and we'll have a JB that takes 5-10 minutes to perform, in a day or 2. That's awesome.
      I bought the original iPhone for $550 in '07- and was furious that I couldn't put ringtones on it! I went online and searched endlessly to find out if there was a way to add ringtones of my own, and I found a small site, dedicated to hacking the iPhone. Long story short, I was able to add ringtones, but it took about 4 programs to download, and then writing the code into the phone manually, and if you we're off by one tiny mishap, you had to do it all over again! Lol.... It was like a half hour per tone, but it was so exciting to be able to do it.
      Now, you DL one program, and it does all the work for you in 10 minutes... And the tweaks are endless. It's just amazing how far it has come in such a short time.
      I guess my whole rant there was about the waiting, it's worth every minute of time they need to make sure everything is working the way it needs to be, without issue. Take your time evad3rs,we've all gone months without, a few more days is nothing.

      Apple released an update that stopped smart banners from enabling javascript. If you care about privacy and security when browsing the web then that is single-handedly the reason to update.

      Actually they haven't promised Sunday at all. That was from a fake site.

      MuscleNerd said "maybe Sunday, maybe after, maybe before."

      I'm excited for the jailbreak and can't wait. I've missed the tweaks for my iPhone 5!!! However, we all need to show appreciation for what these guys are doing. I'm sure they get money from sources within the Cydia Store (maybe not), but the time they're spending should be appreciated (whether they're compensated or not). I'm planning on donating a little after the jailbreak is released. If we all donated a little, it could help them a lot!

      Correct. They didn't promise Sunday. Musclenerd did hint at it though. And the pictures of the idevices on the evasi0n site have Feb 3 on the calendar icon. So it is probably a safe bet it will be Sunday. Of course something could always happen to delay it, lets hope not though

      Mike, I've not seen you insult anybody for months. Have you not been feeling well?
