  • 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!

      Yeah.. let's remind ourselves of the Planetbeing quote from post 1.
      “@planetbeing: Good full day of testing. Found some weird edge cases, but they're resolved. Still need to test on many other device/firmware combos” 09:50PM EST 2/2/13
      We're gonna actually have to socialize with our friends at the SuperBowl parties today. We're not getting anything today, gang. I'm now sure of it. Too much testing yet to be done on "many" devices.

      But it was never promised for today if we're honest with ourselves. At least I'm ready. All my deb files for all up to date tweaks and dependency files on my Mac ready to load onto my newly JB'en iP5 without having to worry about Cydia logjam on day 1. Took all yesterday to get all my tweaks downloaded (and not all ready for 6.1). But most theming tweaks are ready to go and I'll be up and running in minutes after JB.
      Gridlock is the main theme tweak not ready yet (aargh.. - that one's always late)...

      Patience is a virtue!

      I'm really getting tired of people attacking me for my comment, I believed in what I said, yet so far out of all the people that have attacked, only about 2 of them where about what I actually said, and yes It's my problem if I got my hopes up and not theirs, but I also complained about all the fuzz being made about this, fuzz that most of it was made by us, that's what I don't like, again I'M NOT COMPLAINING ABOUT THEIR WORK OR THEM, THEY ARE THE ONLY REASON I STILL HAVE AN IPHONE BECAUSE IOS IS THE MOST BORING OS EVER, IF THEY TAKE ANOTHER WEEK THEN FINE, OH AND BTW I DONATED IN THE PAGE AND I HAVEN'T COMPLAINED ABOUT THAT AT ALL, I FACT SOME TIME AGO I SAID THEY HAVE THE RIGHT TO ASK FOR DONATIONS, AFTER ALL THEY ARE IMPROVING UPON APPLE'S MISTAKE. SO FOR THE LAST TIME, ATTACK ME IF YOU WANT ABOUT ME COMPLAINING BECAUSE OF ALL THE FUZZ THAT HAS BEEN MADE ABOUT, BUT DON'T ATTACK ME BECAUSE I COMPLAINED ABOUT THEIR WORK BECAUSE I HAVE NEVER SAID SUCH THINGS, AND NEVER WILL, I EVEN BOUGHT AN IPHONE 5 JUST YESTERDAY BECAUSE I KNEW THERE WAS FINALLY HOPE OF A WORKING JAILBREAK FOR IT, REGARDLESS OF ALL THE NEWS ABOUT THE JAILBREAK TAKING MORE TIME THAN THOUGHT, BECAUSE I TRUST THAT IT WILL COME OUT, MAYBE TODAY, MAYBE TOMORROW, OR MAYBE EVEN NEXT WEEK. So now let's see who the first one is going to be telling me to stop complaining about their work, which I haven't btw.

      So do hackers watch the Super Bowl or will they use the time for testing? Hmmm...

      Yep. me too. I'm waiting until later in the week to jailbreak and in the meantime I downloaded the cydia app spreadsheet that someone was nice enough to post and will be leisurely looking through this tempting candy store...

      Remember, nobody is forcing you to read the forums or the EvasiOn website and once you post, it's public and open to criticism. What do you care what strangers think about your opinions anyway? Like Anthony said, relax - or maybe distance yourself from the forums for awhile?

      You are right, i'll just read the articles and not comment for a while, It was never my intention to offend anyone.

      Krima, you got it backwards. I believe he was proclaiming Xbox as the greatest gaming system of all times.

      But wait, there is another thread for this.

      Let the testing continue!

      rcm, I don't think anyone was offended. They are just passionate about their coveted jailbreak and most understand the complexity involved so tend to be a bit protective of the developers.

      You are WRONG King. 100% of people prefer the Wii over EVERYTHING. Trust me, I used to work at GameStop I know things. This isn't a matter of opinion but of unquestionable fact. I am Krima and this is my infallible decree.
