  • 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!

      Maybe not that harsh, but yes, if you want to complain about these outstanding developers after they've taken a huge role in providing a jailbreak for regular users like me and you, reevaluate yourself. I had $7.47 in my bank account when I visited evasi0n.com. I donated every penny I had to these guys, the LEAST you could do is keep your mouth shut about your ungratefulness.

      Because everyone begged and hounded them for a release date. So they provided an ETA (which pod2g CLEARLY stated was an ESTIMATE) to try and make everyone happy. As usual, there is always someone who is going to complain anyway. I suggest that they either release an unstable jailbreak to the whiners to shut them up or never EVER announce another jailbreak so they don't raise the hopes for people who have no tolerance or patience.

      As long as this tool "Just works" I don't care. I re-restored my 4S (courtesy of RedSn0w) and neither Absinthe or RedSn0w will jailbreak it. Admittedly last time I did set my 4S up as a new device. So in short I hope the evad3rs take all the time in the world to produce the best most stable jailbreak yet.

      I dont know why everyone is freaking out over this. I dont agree with the conclusion that we will not be seeing it tomorrow. I don't think that Planetbeings comment "Good full day of testing...Found some problems...but they are resolved" really translates as "hey we are way behind, we cannot finish this thing by Sunday, which we have been hinting at for awhile. We didn't realize how many combinations there were.....we forgot how to count."

      No...I think they are smarter than that. I think they have had this release planned for a while. I think they know releasing it on the Super Bowl will result in getting more donations (everyone will be with friends, how do people other than us at this forum find out you can jailbreak your iPhone?.....By people like us, at social gatherings like the Super Bowl.

      Yes I think they are that smart. Oh, and it just went up to 85% done...only 15% to go with the Superbowl fast approaching....I guess we will see!

      When the JB is released, I guess apple devs will also download it, from there would they be able to see how the JB was possible

      I wonder how many apple staff JB their devices

      People have their reasons. And who's to say that "your" needs are more important than anyone else's? The developers are helping as many people as they can benefit from the jailbreak which can't be easy. How about a little understanding for those having device requirements that don't parallel yours?

      Yes, they've had it planned for awhile. After all, they had it running on their iphone 5 6.0.2. However, Apple didn't release 6.1 until last week. There is only so much the developers can do until the actual software update is released so they can finish the tool and then start testing. How long do you think it takes to test 22 devices once the jailbreak is finished? Do you really think that a week is long enough? That averages out to about 3 devices a day with only 4 testers...with jobs...and school...and family...and IF they don't encounter any issues, or get any sleep. How about we just don't have any expectations and hope for the best. Don't push them to do a fast job, encourage them to do a good job.
