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

    Default 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).

    There is no way I'll update to 6.1.1. I'm very happy with my jailbroken 6.1 ))

    Apple should spend the time for the bigger Cat & Mouse game with Samsung than jailbreaking on iDevices.

    The next BETA should patch the jailbreak. Apple is just playing with these Evasi0n people.

    Good, but I don't think too many people will be upgrading...

  14. #12
    No need for any of those 6.1.1 additions here. 6.1 is fine. When I learn Japanese I'll upgrade.
    Here to help if I can. If I can't I know someone who can!

    Maybe Apple finally realized that a big portion of their sales comes because of JB......not! Sweet that they didn't patch the JB though!

    Goes to show you that Apple can care less about people jailbreaking their phone

    I posted this yesterday right after you guys announced the beta release. no mention of bug fixes in the update, but then again who knows?

    Here's a copy of the release notes. Look like updates for maps. But who knows what else they thru in there LOL. Maybe be a cover up!

    ● Optimized directions to more strongly prefer highways over narrower roads

    The portion of sales resulting from jailbreaking is not as high as everyone seems to think it is. By now I'm sure the number is over 2 million but when you take into account how many iOS devices are running iOS 6 that number is not as high as you think.

    Why must it require a full OS release just to update one app. Would it really be that hard to push an update for Maps via the App Store? The more I think about it, the more ridiculous it seems. There is no reason they couldn't push both a new firmware release and individual app updates, just like how one can just download, say, a new version of Safari on OS X. The OTA updates are already one (small) step towards that, but still a long ways away. Just look at Cydia, using the dpkg infrastructure, where you can easily upgrade or downgrade individual packages (apps, tweaks, etc.) I'm sorry if I'm beat the remains of a long dead horse here, but sometimes this really gets to me.

    You can always restore your phone and remove the jailbreak if you think evasi0n is not worth it
