  • 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!

      Is it sad that I am hoping that it doesn't release tonight just so Grant would be wrong in saying yesterday that it was going to drop today?

      I'm just kidding Grant, completely joking. Today has been fun with all the anticipation and excitement. So ready for tomorrow. Hope everyone had a great Sunday.

      All I can say is, it's a good thing nobody depends on me for reporting late breaking news. I even get chastised by friends and family for not having my iphone tethered to my side. "WHAT? I sent that message over 45 seconds ago. You had more than enough time to get back to me!" Sheesh...

      When you get old, nothing is urgent anymore. Except maybe when you have to go to the bathroom. :-)

      I've only got a few years to reach that point, so I'm not far behind.
