It’s been quite sometimes now since we heard of a new Jailbreaking tool on many web sites. Now it seems like, this is for real. It is as real as it can get. Finally the tool “Evasi0n” is out and it is ready to jailbreak almost all of your iOS 6 based devices running on iOS 6 platform. A twitter account that goes with the id @evad3rs has tweeted about the release of their tool couple of hours back. This is a new jailbreak community which also includes another world know hacker Pod2g.
Unfortunately, this tool doesn’t support Apple TV 3 as of today. However, you can expect that the support for Apple TV 3 may arrive anytime soon with the release of their tool’s newer version. At this point we can only guess as there is no clear cut indication on when they might release it.
This tool supports the following iOS 6 based devices:
- iPhone 5
- iPhone 4S
- iPhone 4
- iPhone 3GS
- iPad 4
- iPad 3
- iPad 2
- iPad mini
- iPod touch 4
- iPod touch 5
Interestingly, this tool supports all the versions of iOS 6 operating system which includes iOS 6.0, iOS 6.0.1, iOS 6.0.2 and iOS 6.1. So, it is safe to say that if your iOS device is running the latest version of iOS, you can jailbreak your device. Remember, this is an untethered jailbreak which means, you don’t need perform the jailbreaking procedure every time your restart you device.
In case if you are running older version of iOS and planning to update your device to jailbreak, we wouldn’t recommend our readers to download it over the air. Simply download the iOS 6.1 IPSW files and update it manually. You can find all the download links of iOS 6.1 for all the devices from this post.
Another great thing about Evasi0n is that, it is being released for all the major desktop OS platform. So, if you are waiting for a long time to jailbreak your iOS 6 based device, simply go ahead and get started.
