iOS 6.1 ‘evasi0n’ Jailbreak Hit 100,000 Downloads Within 10 Minutes of Launch

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!

Here’s the actual tweet from @planetbeing (via iDownloadBlog):

Cydia has been swamped all day as users swarm to install and try the new jailbreak – and with 100,000 users applying the jailbreak in just 10 minutes, it’s not hard to see why Cydia’s servers are being slammed! That’s a pretty impressive benchmark, and goes to show that jailbreaking remains quite popular, despite Apple’s attempt to add new formerly jailbreak-only features in iOS 6.

If you haven’t tried the jailbreak yet, visit our launch post for the link, and check out this video tutorial for a step-by-step guide on how to apply the jailbreak to your device!
