  • 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!

      No I wouldn't, I don't have facebook, or twitter so I can't go into anywhere to complain, I don't go into every blog complaining about their work either, I'm not i0nic who's probably just jealous he isn't part of the team, and I even donated to them and so far I haven't said anything about it, my only problem, AND ONLY BECAUSE I'M TIRED OF PEOPLE THINKING IN COMPLAINING ABOUT THEM OR THEIR WORK, is just the fuzz that was made about a week ago, and now is like taking a step backwards, I had a lot of apps from cydia and now there gone because I decided to update, and yes I could go back to 5.1.1, but I decided not to because I really thought it would be out today, and no I'm not going back to 5.1.1 because I know it will be out eventually, maybe even today, maybe before the halftime show so that Beyonce will be forced to jailbreak her iphone and not screw up the halftime show like she did the inauguration. Bottom line, I'm thankful to them and their work, is just the fuzz, the same fuzz made for 5.1.1, and all other jailbreaks before it, but this time i'm my opinion got a little crazier than usual.

      Agreed. I'd rather wait for a flawless and smooth jailbreak, than to receive a lackluster, buggy, "works sometimes, but not all the time" jailbreak. I'm just saying, I understand the anxiousness of anticipating having the first jailbreak in what felt like forever for the newer iOS devices (like iphone 5) that were up until now left out of the JB world, but just try to be patient folks... These guys are working hard to provide us with FREE tools to enhance our favorite devices!

      It sure is nice of them in tweets and on the site to let us know every step of the journey this time. At least we know what's been going on the last week.

      You guys just take all the time you need! All this blabber back & forth does nothing to get this released any sooner. I'd much rather them test, test and then retest before it makes it to me! Thanks Dev's for all your hard work, take your time!

      it's been awhile since I've been on this site, but as with any forum, I should have known there would be a lot of complaining about something.

      I wouldn't be surprised, if all the people saying "ermahgerd!!! the jailbreak they said it might be done Sunday but its not and they're just trying to get my money", actually caused them to just flat out not release it.

      you do realize they are doing a service for free, right? jail breaking is not an easy process and I'm sure hey didn't get it done on a lunch break. they deserve donations for being so kind as to even release it. they could just as easily create it, test it, and keep it for themselves.

      if you don't feel like waiting, create your own. these are the same people that rush a release and then complain when it doesn't work properly. reminds me why I don't even read through the forums usually.

      anyway, to be on topic, I'm very excited for this. I've been very unhappy with apple, iTunes, and my iPhone but being that I'm stuck in a contract, at least this will allow me to make my phone a little more entertaining for the duration of the contract. keep up the good work devs, you'll be getting a donation from me as well

      Look at all of you getting riled up like they OWE you. If I were them and I was reading all these posts I'd hold it for an extra day or two on principal.

They might as well take the page down and just wait until they are sure the jailbreak is coming.
      Yes, it is their fault you got your hopes up. Instead of getting your hopes up, try growing up.

      Yeah the calendar says Wednesday, because that's the longest day name of the week and it's pretty easy to point out. However, the Calendar application on the press images from Apple's Web site also say Wednesday, so I'm willing to bet that it's just there because they changed the date from the original image from 12 to 3 and left the day.

If they say it is safe to upgrade, they KNOW it is fundamentally safe to upgrade for all devices, even if untested.
      Regardless of what you think they know, testing is testing, there are 22 devices with scores and scores of variations. And if you are following along, planetbeing did state yesterday that he encountered some unexpected issues which are impossible to anticipate and resolve in advance. However, if that is really how you feel then hopefully they'll quickly rush through the testing since they already "know" it's safe and you'll have it on the day expected.
