  • 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!

      We needed some humor in this somber forum.

      I have an idea! Let's form a pool for guessing the day/time the jailbreak is released, everybody contributes a dollar and whoever comes closest wins the pool! Anthony, you can hold our money. :-)

      Whine whine moan moan. And the joke is, when you DO get the jailbreak installed, Cydia will be so overwhelmed that you won't be able to dl anything. And most of what you finally DO get won't work until the devs update stuff. Calm down, breath slowly, be happy that there is finally going to be an untethered jb (I'm still running an i4 w/5.1.1 because of that, will get an i5 when the jb is released), and say only good things about a bunch of people who are taking their time and putting in their effort to do something nice for you (you sniveling little ingrates! ) for no money. And, remember, Apple will probably put out 6.1.1 soon to stop all of this from continuing. Enjoy the window of opportunity while you can. Oh, and NO ONE SAID it would be released today, so there's no point getting your panties in a bunch if it isn't.

      I may have to start running a stock phone, the infantilism of (some of) the jailbreaking community is starting to get to me.

      Actually most tweaks have already been updated for 6.1, some will still need update and some may need additional work. Also Cydia is coming ore-loaded with repo info that is, according to Saurik, supposed to almost eliminate the Cydia lag.

      Playing devils advocate here but "you" don't have to read the forums either.

      or $0.99 in the AppStore

      In the meantime, the "h8ers" are being more productive than the non-hating crowd,
      like releasing an iOS6 and A5/A6 compatible blob extractor!

      It will eliminate likely the "early" lag of the packages downloading which takes quite some time over thousands of us grabbing for it. But mark my words, there will still be lots of lag in people downloading all of the tweaks at the same time. Even after my packages list downloaded fully, about 18 hours in to the jailbreak process, it still took another 30 hours for me to get some of the main tweaks I wanted to download for me without POSIX errors. So lets not get peoples hopes up too much that it simply going to be a breeze with Cydia this time. It likelywon't be. Saurik was only able to fix one aspect of the lag problem. The other one is sheer volume.

      I was only going by what Saurik had said on Reddit. But I guess you know better. I'm just not in that much of a hurry. My iph4s is running just fine and my iph5 is ready to go.

      it's cuz everyone is waiting for the jailbreak, they apparently don't like football and there's nothing else to focus on.

      How much for the blob extractor??

      Quick!!!! It's out!!!! Everyone rush over there and get it!!! Nowwwwww!!!!!

      (Nah, but I do like seeing them all scurry!)

      dsg: then what fun would that be (and thanks for all the help when the last untethered jb came out)?

      gibabe: for those of us that have been on these forums for a long time, it just seems like the quality of posts is devolving in a constant whine. There used to be a lot of helpful posts and community here. Now it just seems like a bunch of middle school kids saying
      "I wan it, I wan it."

      okay. I'll give you that. It's not fun coming to a favorite forum and having to weed through the whiny posts to get to something informative or worth discussing.

      Maybe because a bunch of them ARE middle school kiddies?
      Folks, what it comes down to is it comes out when it comes out. You don't like that fact feel free to develop your own jailbreak. Can't develop your own then deal with the fact that the dev's will release no version before they are comfortable with the fact that it won't trash phones and damage their reputations.

      90% done and final testing as of time of this post. Maybe it WILL be out today.

      And in a matter of a few minutes it jumps to 91%. Maybe even half time (although I'm not watching the game - busy working on my two forums).
