‘Evasi0n’ iOS 6 Jailbreak Hit 1.7 Million Downloads in Under 24 Hours

‘Evasi0n’ iOS 6 Jailbreak Hit 1.7 Million Downloads in Under 24 Hours

The new ‘evasi0n’ untethered iOS 6 jailbreak has certainly been popular, racking up 100,000 downloads in its first 10 minutes of availability, and a whopping 800 million downloads within the first 6 hours. That’s just the beginning, however. According to Cydia creator Saurik, the jailbreak managed to hit over 1.7 million downloads by Tuesday morning – less than 42 hours after launching!


The numbers were revealed in an interview between Saurik and Forbes:

In its first six hours online, the crack had already been used at least 800,000 times, according to Jay Freeman, administrator of the Cydia appstore for jailbreakers, and he says that’s a conservative estimate–his count was fouled up when the tsunami of traffic knocked his server offline several times over the course of the jailbreak’s first day online. By Tuesday his count was up to 1.7 million.

Those are some pretty impressive numbers, showing that jailbreaking remains extremely popular despite the fact that Apple publicly and strongly disapproves of jailbreaking iOS devices.

    it was a straight forward process for me, no hiccups at all. Though I have to say that over all that the post jailbreak tweaking is a lot more fiddley than I want. I can see the attraction to an extent and really if post jailbreak weren’t so much like running a Linux box five years ago (and more like using Windows 7 last year or better yet a Mac this year) then I’d be content to continue using it. However toying with my stuff for a half hour or more to make programs do what I want them to do just doesn’t float my boat anymore. Particularly at the level of my phone. I deal with desktop and server, system, file, and machine level issues all day every day for a living, I have no desire to make my phone use something that introduces those same issues and forces me to “work” off the clock as well.

    I have to say though that I’m impressed by ease of installing the jailbreak and the general organization of Cydia. I personally think Apple would be well served to keep these folks close and pay attention to what they are doing. Even the most basic tweeks that I saw and used myself. Would, if implemented officially, do iOS and Apple a world of good.
