Well folks it’s official! The iOS 6 Untethered Jailbreak from the Evad3rs has a name — Evasi0n. Pod2G sent out a tweet not long ago stating that the website was online and to check it regularly for updates. We learned earlier this week that the iOS 6 Untethered Jailbreak was fully functioning with the iOS 6.1 firmware update Apple pushed on Monday and thus the Evad3rs announced it wouldn’t be long before we would see a public release of the Jailbreak. In fact, MuscelNerd tweeted that it could be as early as this Sunday. It is important to keep in mind however, this is just an estimation and it could be released later or even earlier depending on how private beta testing goes.
According to the official website the Evasi0n Jailbreaking tool will take 5 minutes of your time, requires a computer running Windows, Mac OS X or Linux and a compatible iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad. You can take a look at the requirements in a bullet form list below…
- 5 minutes of your time!
- A computer, running Windows (XP minimum), Mac OS X (10.5 minimum) or Linux (x86 / x86_64)
- An iPhone, iPad or iPod running iOS 6.0 through 6.1 (you may check in Settings / General / About => Version)
- A USB cable to connect the device to the computer
Right now the Evad3rs are in the middle of finishing the GUI (graphical user interface) for the tool, once this is complete private beta testing will start and then it will be made public. The individuals working on the iOS 6 Untethered Jailbreak include MuscleNerd, Planetbeing, Pod2G and Pimskeks. Phoenixdev, Surenix, Hanéne Samara, the Chronic Dev-Team and the iPhone Dev-Team also contributed to the Jailbreak. Apparently even Kiki the cat was involved.
