  • 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!

      you could send @evad3rs a tweet, and tell them to hurry up.
      or @i0n1c since he's the official cheerleader

      Just to play Devil's Advocate here... It's conceivable that as soon as Apple gets wind of these exploits they could quickly patch even just one of them, release 6.1.1 and instantly stop signing 6.1 (as they did with 6.0.1/6.0.2). Then folks wouldn't be able to upgrade to 6.1. Simultaneously releasing the jailbreak on all 6.x versions takes that option away from Apple. It'd be very tough/impossible for the devs to go back and retroactively work on an OS they can no longer restore to. I believe planetbeing and musclenerd know what they're doing :-)

      Fingers crossed, all the calendars on the evasi0n site DO say "3" on them so hopefully they stick to their word. Hope they release a MAC/PC 6.1 JB, and continue to progressively work/release on others during the week, that way a good majority of us are satisfied for the time being

      @rcm...
      I usually keep shut. But I have to say your lack of respect towards the dev team working on a jailbreak that YOU are going to install onto YOUR device(s) probably for free because You haven't or won't donate is total bs. If you don't like that the website that the dev team has is giving us all a progress report then don't go to the website! It's that simple! As far as I can tell ur the only one complaining. Be happy we are getting a jailbreak. If you don't want to know the progress then don't come onto this forum or the dev teams website. I hope I didn't offend anyone but enough is enough don't you think guys?

      All the iOS devices on the Evadsi0n website have the 3rd of the month on the calendar app, and sunday is the 3rd of February, so it seems like a **** move not to release it tomorrow

      The devs are just making it seem that there's still a lot of things to do, then will release it tomorrow during the Super Bowl just to up the suspense and the drama. Then will say "we spent the whole night testing to bring you the jailbreak just in time for the Superbowl/Sunday-Funday"

      That's our cue (the public) to hit the donate button and spam them with tweets and post praising them for all the hard work, etc.

      These guys are like Hollywood actors, they need publicity and attention

      The reason the hackers beg apple to release 6.1 is because they were still in beta stages. Can't work on a jailbreak if if its not released to the public. I understand your comment and respect it but they did say sooner or later. So technically you should be upset it wasn't out yesterday

      Oh my...you rage harder than MY 3 year old niece! Haha, you do have a valid point though. People need to learn to be more patient and let the evad3rs release a stable jailbreak

      Wow. Bro there's thousands of stupid people who bring hype and excitement and anger to the devs. Do you think these people care if he stayed up all night? Do you think these kids even know who's playing in the Super Bowl? They won't donate. It's a jailbreak. There not Hollywood actors. Some will donate. Some wont. IMO I doubt there's a strategy to planet beings methods.
