Apple’s been waging a war against jailbreaking for a long time, taking every opportunity to close loopholes and make the process more difficult for users. This has led many to wonder whether their upcoming iOS 7 release will jailbreakable at all – but it appears there’s some encouraging news!
With the release of iOS 6.1.3, Apple officially killed off the exploits required for the “Evasi0n” untethered jailbreak, leaving many users to wonder when it would be “safe” to update their jailbroken devices to Apple’s latest firmware. According to iOS hacker and Evad3rs team member Pod2g, the answer is that it probably won’t happen until Apple releases iOS 7.
Jailbreaking isn’t just a way to get free apps, or to get a cool lockscreen. It’s almost become an art form. With that in mind, let’s find out more about those amongst us who do jump in and install Cydia. The jailbreakers.
The iOS 6.1.3 beta 2 update, which was seeded to developers last week, will put an end to one of the exploits used in the evasion jailbreak.
Following the release of iOS 6.1.2 earlier today, the Evad3rs (makers of the new Evasi0n untethered jailbreak) confirmed that the new firmware can still be jailbroken. The team has also released an updated version of the evasi0n jailbreak with full support for jailbreaking iOS 6.1.2.
As expected, the popular “evasi0n” untethered iOS 6 jailbreak tool has just been updated to version 1.3 (as revealed by the Evad3rs team on Twitter). The update adds support for iOS 6.1.1 on the iPhone 4S, which Apple released earlier today.
The new untethered iOS 6 ‘evasi0n’ jailbreak has certainly been extremely popular, having been used to jailbreak over 7 million devices in it’s first week of release – but with Apple’s iOS 6.1.1 jailbreak on the horizon, many jailbreakers may wonder whether the update could block their jailbreak.
We all know the new evasi0n jailbreak for iOS 6/6.1 has been making waves – but just how popular has the new iOS 6 jailbreak really been? According to Cydia creator Jay Freeman in an interview with Forbes, the tool was used to jailbreak over 7 million devices in it’s first 4 days of availability!
The developers of the popular ‘evasi0n’ untethered iOS 6 jailbreak have released an updated version of their jailbreak, which fixes issues some users reported regarding unusually long device boot tomes after jailbreaking, as well as an issue that caused the iOS Weather app to crash after jailbreaking.
Now that the ‘evasi0n’ iOS 6 untethered jailbreak has arrived, many who are new to the jailbreaking scene might be wondering what jailbreak tweaks or apps they should try to get started. I’ve rounded up a few that I have used and enjoyed in the past, and have come up with 7 of my favorites – I hope you enjoy them as well as I have!
The new ‘evasi0n’ untethered iOS 6 jailbreak has certainly been popular, racking up 100,000 downloads in its first 10 minutes of availability. That’s just the beginning, however. According to Cydia creator Saurik, the jailbreak managed to hit over 1.7 billion downloads by Tuesday morning – less than 42 hours after launching!
Apple has updated their article about making unauthorized medications to iOS devices, adding a new warning about the perils of jailbreaking. The article states that jailbreaking could make your device less secure and less stable, shorten your battery life, disrupt your voice and data, and more.
Earlier today, the first iOS 6.1 untethered jailbreak was unleashed for all current iOS devices – and it has been extremely popular from moment one, unsurprisingly. In fact, according to iOS hacker @planetbeing, who is a member of the ‘evasi0n’ jailbreak development team, it reached over 100,000 downloads within 10 minutes of being released!
So while the evasi0n jailbreak has just been released for iOS 6.1, all too often we don’t hear enough about the men behind the exploits. However pod2g, one of those men (whose real name is Cyril and is French), gave an interesting interview to MacGeneration where he discussed evasi0n but also jailbreaking more generally.
The ‘evasi0n’ untethered iOS 6.1 jailbreak has finally arrived – and iDownloadBlog has a great tutorial on how to use the tool to jailbreak your iOS device! Check out the video below! Happy jailbreaking!
