  • The evasi0n Jailbreak Showing 85% Complete On Web Site, Testing Continues


    The evasi0n Web site has been updated Sunday morning displaying an 85% completion status for the evasi0n jailbreak tool, which will be available for Mac OS X, Windows, and Linux. The Web site says that the tool has gone through the first major round of testing on Mac and Windows, however it doesnít make mention of Linux just yet. Additionally, the site says that the next step will be, you guessed it, testing even more device and firmware combinations with the jailbreak tool.

    The updated site comes hours after iOS hacker planetbeing announced on Twitter that progress was made in testing and that there was still a lot more to go. MuscleNerd noted that there are 22 different variants of devices that need to be tested, and there are four different firmware versions that need to be tested with these different devices. On top of all this, there are three different tools, for the different computer operating systems, that have to be tested.

    When released, evasi0n will support iOS 6.0, iOS 6.0.1, iOS 6.0.2, and iOS 6.1 for all of the devices that can run them, including Appleís new iPhone 5, iPod touch 5G, iPad with retina display, and iPad Mini. The jailbreak will be untethered, and jailbreak tweaks have been receiving updates regularly for the past couple of days as developers rush to get their software compatible for the latest version of iOS in time for the imminent jailbreak.

    For those of you waiting on the jailbreak, it doesnít look like itís going to be very far away. At 85% completion, it looks like it will definitely be out this week, if not later Sunday as hinted by MuscleNerd in one of his earlier Tweets. If your iOS device(s) are still not ready for the jailbreak, we recommend that you take a peek at our optional guide for getting your iOS device(s) ready, as it will help ensure that the jailbreak process goes smoothly for you.

    We've also put together a list of ten great iOS 6-compatbile jailbreak tweaks that you should consider after you jailbreak your iOS 6 device(s). Major jailbreak tweaks like LockInfo, IntelliScreenX, and MyWi have also been updated. Stay turned!

      "@p0sixninja: Don't forget to donate whenever #evasi0n is released. Show the @evad3rs how much you appreciate all their hard work!!!"

      I'm all for donating, but this makes me think it's more about the money, than the challenge of jailbreaking!

      I said it earlier and I stand by it, I think they release at kickoff, if not kick off at halftime, or end of the game. Some big moment to compensate against the Super Bowl. Maybe at the end when he says "I wanna go to Disney land" maybe a tweet that says "now that I've won the Super Bowl I'm gonna jailbreak my iPhone 5!" While this is all stuff that I'm pulling out of my a** it'd be kinda cool

      Correct me if I'm wrong but isn't jail breaking any kind of tablet illegal now? Won't the devs face repercussions for releasing this tool?
