Team of iOS 6 Jailbreak Hackers Call Themselves the "evad3rs"
Remember the Dream Team that was assembled to get the iPhone 4S and iOS 5 jailbroken? It seems that the league of jailbreak hackers have come up with another name for themselves as they continue their efforts towards an untethered iOS 6 jailbreak. They now call themselves, the evad3rs.
The lineup of hackers in the team dubbed evad3rs is slightly different from the Dream Team, however. The lineup includes iOS hackers pod2g, planetbeing, MuscleNerd, and pimskeks. All of these names should ring a bell, as they've been a huge part of the jailbreak community for so long.
Pod2g clarifies in the Tweet who the members of the evad3rs group are to help eliminate confusion on who is working on the iOS 6 untethered jailbreak so that donations go to their right places and not to scammers trying to take advantage of the situation. At the same time, pod2g states that the team is not accepting donations at this point in time.
Pod2g and planetbeing have announced progress on two different fronts, one being that they have found themselves two potentially useful vulnerabilities in one day, and the other saying that the future is looking bright for jailbreaking and urging the release of iOS 6.1.
We continue to offer positive support for our hackers and wish them the best of luck in their new alliance.

Glad to see regular updates from these guys! Hopefully they find what they need to release the tools for 6.1.

I would like to think this is a sign that the "evad3rs" believe they are close to a public jailbreak! Why else would they name themselves for donation purposes? I would not expect anything until iOS 6.1 is release though.

It's okay. I would have gone for the exploit3rs.
Actually, I don't really care what they call themselves - as long as they do what they do best! They could be called the Tiddlyknick3r Brigade for all I care

I wonder what they are evading? Apple?
I think they are more like iNvad3rs as in invading into iOS to create jailbreak, I guess Apple have i copyrighted thus the e...

I wonder if the twitter profile pic of evaders will be the icon of the new jailbreak hmm. Something to think about

Finally we see the master minds behind this JailBreak! Great to see the best of the best still doing what they are loved for!

I'm willing to throw these guys some cash just for the work they've done. But not accepting donations? Blasphemy I say! Lol

Tbh I think the jb is done and dusted by now (or at least nearing its final phase if it isn't). I think we are just waiting for Apple to release iOS 6.1 to not waste an exploit and if the exploits don't work on 6.1 then I think the jb will be released for 6.0/6.0.1/6.0.2. This is all just speculation of course
