  • Planetbeing Announces Progress in Testing, Still A Lot More to Go


    Planetbeing has Saturday evening announced that testing is going well for the iOS 6 untethered jailbreak called evasi0n, however there is a lot more testing on different devices and firmware combinations that needs to still take place. Currently, the evasi0n Web site displays an 80% completion percentage, while private beta testing continues on Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux.

    With over 22 different device variances that need to be tested, and four different iOS versions that these devices run that need to be tested, on top of three different tools for the operating systems that the tools will run on, there are a LOT of testing combinations that have to be done for the jailbreak to ensure that all the bugs have been hammered out in all possible cases.

    After private beta testing is done, the Web site hints that an extended beta testing will take place. Private beta testing is assumed to occur between the evad3rs team themselves, as to prevent the jailbreak from being leaked early. It is still unknown what the extended beta testing will entail.

    Planetbeing’s Tweet doesn’t rule out the possibility of a near-future release, however from the sound of things it doesn’t sound like it’s going to be coming on Sunday (tomorrow), as the rumor mill has been pointing to. This week seems much more likely.

    In the mean time, you can get your iOS devices ready for the jailbreak with our short guide, and check out our list of recommended jailbreak tweaks for iOS 6; stay tuned!

      I agree that a prerequisite should be to upgrade to 6.1.

      Ah man this was big time and they've never missed a release date - especially one they set up a website for and picked such a high profile day. I'm with a lot of people here that id rater nothing be said at all than a big scene over a missed date.

      Would make sense since most people will do a clean restore to ensure no issues which means going to 6.1! As that's all that is currently being signed by apple!

      Well keep the faith. Since the site went up they have been making a lot of progress. I bet they'll drop it tomorrow. They probably just want to stretch it out to keep it popular on all the boards and to keep getting those hits to their site. #fingerscrossed

      Thanks @Evad3rs btw for all the hard work!!

No offense it's the attitude that gives the devs the reason not to do the things they do. Like show the progress of how things are going. If they didn't have a website you'd only be asking if it was out yet!
      They put up a website, hinted on a specific day, so yeah i think they got my hopes up, they could have just waited until most of the testing was done, instead planet actually begs Apple to release 6.1 already, sorry if you didn't like my comment but this is how I feel, oh and even some devs updated their apps just because they thought the jailbreak was near release too.

      There was never a date. None of the hackers outright expressed when it would come out. Only speculation put the date on Sunday.

      I totally agree but I will side with some disappointment. I'm sure people planned their whole week around this. Nevertheless m just happy they're pretty much there

      I am thankful for all they've done over the years, just that I don't like it when things like this happen, it's not their fault, after all they are making this for 2 new devices also, the ipad 4 and iphone 5, i know that will take time, it's just making all the fuzz that I don't like.

      Apologies if I had it wrong then. I heard Sunday somewhere and then heard it was done for Mac and windows. Honestly whatever the end is very in sight!

      Go make your own damn jailbreak and stop whining. Oh, you can't? be happy that they are nice enough to make one for you for free.
