  • Miraculously, iOS 6.1.1 Beta Doesn't Patch the evasi0n Jailbreak... Yet


    Yesterday afternoon, Apple released iOS 6.1.1 beta to developers. The update surprised many of us, as it came out only two days after the evasi0n untethered iOS 6 jailbreak was released. The evasi0n jailbreak supports iOS 6.0, iOS 6.0.1, iOS 6.0.2, and iOS 6.1.

    Miraculously, a Tweet from pod2g this morning states that iOS 6.1.1 beta does not yet patch the evasi0n iOS 6 jalbreak. This is interesting, considering that iOS 6.1.1 beta does not have an expiration date. It could be that Apple won’t release iOS 6.1.1 to the public until the jailbreak is patched.

    Whatever the case may be, pod2g still advises that we stay away from iOS 6.1.1, as evasi0n will not jailbreak the release. MuscleNerd also advised on Wednesday that we stay away from the update. Pod2g predicts that a future developer version of iOS 6.1.1 will patch the evasi0n jailbreak before the public release.

    According to Apple’s changelog, iOS 6.1.1 beta only includes improvements to the Maps application, adding 3-D support for parts of Japan and improving other areas of the application. There are some additional improvements as well. Most of the update is minor and nothing groundbreaking has been added; we'll all live without it.

    For those of you on the jailbreak that don't want to be annoyed by an OTA (over the air) badge on your Settings application when the update is pushed to the public, you can download a Cydia tweak called "Software Update Killer" to disable OTA updating on your iOS device(s).

      iOS6 "re-turns on" some battery hogging things we'd been taught to turn off in iOS 5 in the system location services. The only two things you need on in that window are Compass Calibration and Traffic. Everything else should be off - especially Cell Network Search which is s HUUUGE battery hog and useless unless you fly to other countries daily. Turn that off and you'll notice better battery life.

      Make sure you only have Location services on for apps that really need it.

      And turn off BlueTooth if you never use it. Another big battery hog.

      I keep Location off for Compass and Traffic as well. I use Waze for traffic.

      Location services in that window has nothing to do with YOU getting traffic data in the maps program but rather its there to report YOU in YOUR car's position as part of traffic flow to the Maps software. Most people don't understand that. Waze gives you traffic data about where you're traveling. But the Traffic button in location services on your phone gives data about your position in your car to others consulting the Maps app. The girometer in the iPhone can tell the difference between you traveling in a car and just walking around. So it's not reporting your position while you're sitting at your house.

      I'm hoping 6.1.1 fixes Weather.app for JB buccaneers.

      "Weather" isn't just an icon, its a matter of life and death.

      OH!! So you're having the battery counter with two hyphens thru it too, Anthony?!? Been driving me batty!! Have you narrowed it down to a tweak conflict? I can't get my battery to register usage at all these last few days. Is yours, after a respring showing "0" minutes? Or just a pair of hyphens "--" ?

      Any ideas what this is? I was going to restore again and add one tweak at a time and see which one made the battery indicator go wonky.
