  • Version 1.2 of evasi0n iOS 6 Untethered Jailbreak Tool Released, Cydia Package Updated


    The hacker team known as evad3rs have pushed an update to the iOS 6 untethered jailbreak tool called evasi0n. The updated tool is now version 1.2. The evad3rs have also updated the evasi0n untethered 6.0-6.1 package in Cydia, which is now version 0.3-1.

    According to the change log, version 1.2 of evasi0n fixes a problem with the time zone when itís not corrected by the client, and disables OTA (over the air) updating for the device itís installed on.

    By disabling the OTA updating feature, users will not be notified of iOS 6.1.1 when it is released to the public. iOS 6.1.1 went into its first beta for developers to test on Wednesday. The iOS 6.1.1 update does not patch evasi0n just yet, but hackers have predicted that a future beta version might patch the evasi0n jailbreak before the update is released to the public. It would be a miracle if it didnít.

    If youíre not jailbroken yet, you should run the latest evasi0n jailbreak (version 1.2) to jailbreak your device. If youíre already jailbroken, you only need to install the updated evasi0n package from Cydia, which will appear when you refresh your Cydia sources.

    The recently released evasi0n version 1.1 fixes the problem with the Weather application crashing and with the long boot times occurring. The updated evasi0n Cydia package (version 0.3-1) and updated evasi0n jailbreak tool (version 1.2) include these fixes as well.

    You can download the updated evasi0n tool from the evasi0n Web site, and view our guide on how to jailbreak with evasi0n from this link.

      Can someone direct me to the right area please? When I am on a call and place the phone to my ear, screen goes black like normal. But the screen does not return after call is ended. I have to touch power button to see the screen again. I have a jailbroken 4s.

      Saurik makes tons of money in Cydia. He gets a percentage for every app purchased in it.

      I dont think its a winterboard issue. I had the weather crashing issue before the 1.1 update and i restored to 6.1 and rejailbroke with 1.1 and it fixed the weather issue. i currently have my iphone 5 fully themed with winterboard and my weather app works great.

      On another note i just wish saurik would fix UIsounds in winterboard. I miss all my custom text tones.

      That sounds like an issue with something you have installed. Not the jailbreak itself.

      Those of you still having trouble with your Weather app here's what you need to do

      1. Remove that tool you use to sync unsigned apps

      2. Reboot

      3. Open Cydia and go to Manage/Packages and at the top right near your status bar hit the "Simple" Button

      4. Scroll down to find UIKit Tools and Reinstall it

      5. when its done installing open iFile or an SSH or program like i-FunBox and delete these Files:

      var/mobile/Library/Caches/com.apple.mobile.installation.plist
      var/mobile/Library/Caches/com.apple.LaunchServices-045.csstore

      5. Reboot and Your Weather app should work

      A ton of money is relative you see, whether it is 1 dollar bills or 100 hundred dollar bills. I'd opt for the latter were I weighting my money.

      If your iPhone is locked and you receive a call , then the phone will lock itself immediately after you hang up , thus leaving you with a black screen. If the phone is unlocked or in use and you receive a call , then when you hang up the phone will return to whatever you were doing before the phone call occurred .

      The phone is not locked. And I'm not able to end the call myself by touching the end button because the screen remains black.

      Speaking of weather, It works on one of my iPhone 4's and not on the other. Then not on my iPhone 5 but does on my 4S.. So confused as to why... Even after the updates.

      Although I did not have any 'tool used to sync unsigned apps' I did use simple and reinstall UIKit Tools then used iFile and deleted the two files and the weather app opened up perfect. Thanks a lot djaquapimp.

      Edit: In case it wasn't implied the evasi0n update had not fixed my weather so I tried this method after and it works, rebooting now.. and it still works. Legit fix. Do it. [iPhone 5 6.1]

      It also screws with the clock app on the iPad.
      Someone should have a look at that instead of doing everything for the iPhones also test on the iPad too.

      Do you have App-Sync installed? If so, then that will cause the native Weather app to crash also.

      Yes, if you have activated an HTML LS in winterboard, you will not get any notifications on your LS.

      This is a known big with winterboard.

      Who cares about the clock. They already spent way too much time testing!

      What really ticks me off me is they promised to release evasi0n on Sunday,
      and didn't deliver until Tuesday.
