  • 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?

      Cydia is still nice an quick for downloading individual tweaks. Hitting REFRESH still for Sources still gives lots of http errors.

      But here's a problem.. Downloaded Winterboard as first tweak. It tells you to ReBoot. I did - but now I'm stuck on APPLE logo only for last 5 minutes.. ... First incompatibility with iP5 I guess.. Looks like I'm gonna have to do a DFU restore. Can't get past Apple. Anyone had any issues yet?

      Worked fine for me, for what it's worth.

      Hard boot

      Hold power and home button until it turns off, then let go of home button until boot starts, then let go of power button.

      This is probably a stupid question but should I upgrade my 3GS to 6.1 or keep it at 5.1.1

      That lasted for about 10 minutes. Cydia servers TOTALLY getting crushed now. Three tweaks tried. All SUM MIsmatch errors or POSIX. Moving to my .deb files. Glad I prepped for this contingency.
