  • The evasi0n Jailbreak Now Up to 91% Completion, Final Testing Begins

    Just following the evad3rs’ announcement that evasi0n, the world’s first untethered iOS 6 jailbreak, would be released on Monday, the evad3rs have updated the evasi0n.com Web site so that the status reads 91% completion. The tool has entered the final testing stages, and primary testing has concluded. According to the Web site, and the evad3rs, the next step is releasing the tool.

    The evasi0n iOS 6 untethered jailbreak will support iOS 6.0, iOS 6.0.1, iOS 6.0.2, and iOS 6.1 for all devices that can run those firmwares. This includes the new iPhone 5, iPod touch 5G, iPad with retina display, and iPad Mini. The tools will be available for Mac OS X, Windows, and Linux as a free download from the evasi0n Web site when the time comes.

    According to the Web site, the requirements for the jailbreak are as follows:

    • 5 minutes of your time!
    • A computer, running Windows (XP minimum), Mac OS X (10.5 minimum) or Linux (x86 / x86_64)
    • An iPhone, iPad or iPod running iOS 6.0 through 6.1 (you may check in Settings / General / About => Version)
    • A USB cable to connect the device to the computer

    While we wait for the evad3rs to finish their final testing, it is a good idea to prepare your iOS devices for the jailbreak by following our short guide on getting to the latest firmware the jailbreak will support. We’ve also created a list of ten jailbreak tweaks that are worth checking out when the iOS 6 jailbreak drops.

    Developers are working hard to get their jailbreak tweaks and applications ready for the jailbreak, as large apps like IntelliScreenX, MyWi, LockInfo, and Springtomize 2, are already ready to be installed on the latest firmware.

    This is it folks, are you excited now that we have an official release day?

      Do you understand what "approximately" means?
      Or "a week out"?
      Usually, it means "a week after today" which would be Tuesday.

      "Aiming for approximately" implies there isn't a release date. He said it might be released around a week after that tweet. Which appears to be correct. So far.

      Quick question. Im on 6.0.1, and I want to upgrade to 6.1. I just spent so many hours getting my phone the way I wanted it. Is there anyway to save a backup of my phone and settings, so when I rejailbreak I get everything the way I had it? Thanks!

      Just backup before with iTunes, upgrade and restore from backup after jailbreak. Or restore from backup before jailbreak, any way. But a fresh restore is recommended before you jailbreak, it's optional.

      @pod2g: The release will happen when the progress bar will reach 100%. You can figure it out!

      There was a post before that post that said Sunday but i cant find it.
      It said something along the lines of "the release day will be sunday or maybe saturday if everything goes well"
      Thats not the exact post or words but thats about what it said. I just cant remember which member it was that said it.

      Who really give a s#** now anyway as itll get released when they wake up even that its finished now they are waiting for all of them to be awake for it.
