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):
Our files are all around ~10MB, so that would mean >100k downloads already.

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.
