The evad3rs just launched their official website a few moments ago, unveiling the name of the 6.x jailbreak: evasi0n. They look to be about 60% done with the hack, as they’re finishing up the GUI and about to start private testing.

The site also divulges some other information regarding the jailbreak, including device and firmware compatibility. And as expected, evasi0n is going to support all iOS devices running iOS versions 6.0 to the just-released 6.1

The exact wording from the new evasi0n website: “Compatible with iPhone, iPad or iPod running iOS 6.0 through 6.1 (you may check in Settings / General / About => Version).” And here’s a list of all of the devices that qualify.

  • iPhone 3GS
  • iPhone 4
  • iPad 2
  • iPod touch 4th generation
  • iPhone 4S
  • iPad 3
  • iPod touch 5th generation
  • iPhone 5
  • iPad mini
  • iPad 4
  • Apple TV 2

Of course, we all know that there isn’t an Apple TV 3 jailbreak yet, and it doesn’t look there’s going to be one anytime soon. And any other device that you don’t see on the list won’t work because they have to be running iOS 6 or higher.

As we await further information from the evad3rs team, make sure to check out our dedicated Jailbreak section. We have a guide on how to prepare for the new evasi0n jailbreak, as well Cydia news, tweak reviews, and more.

  • Smontiel

    Alright! All this jailbreak news makes all excited πŸ™‚

  • Yay for people who too lazy to update. Btw if you read @iDownloadblog everyday, you probably upgraded your device.

  • IDB please do an announcement video.

    • Chuck Norris

      I’m 99.99999999% sure they will tell us.

      @twitter-182768719:disqus @google-a870a141c12be009220c7960c1414026:disqus Am I the only one who wants Jeff to do this video? Nothing weird about this, but I just find that “This is Jeff, with iDownload Blog” so soothing. πŸ™‚

      • Chuck Norris

        For jailbreak stuff I’m used to Jeff. For anything unrelated I’m used to someone else.

      • I want him to read a book his voice is so soothing!!

  • Liam Mulcahy

    Sunday is funday!!!!!

  • damn i am refreshing page every other 10 second,

    • Johnathan Jennings

      Me too. My guess is that they will give us a release date Friday evening.

      • the release date is Sunday “Funday”

      • Johnathan Jennings

        That hasn’t been confirmed idiot. It’s just looking that way.

    • Twiggy

      Lmfao! Me too XD

    • Gucciipad


  • Jude Capili

    What cydia apps are you going to install once the jailbreak comes out?

    • anasiatka

      For me @google-96f3b81b50e745a23963504b679c3883:disqus Lockinfo, BrowserChooser (for Google Chrome) and probably that’s all until I start looking as these are the only tweaks I have died living without. I can’t remember what other ones I used… Excited!

    • Wassim Omais

      IntelliScreenX, Auxo, Winterboard, iFile, NCSettings or SBSettings, AnyAttach, Ayecon theme, and too many to make my 4S very boss……

  • M L

    So upgrade to 6.1 then?

    • SimonOrJ

      Yes, if you want to..

    • yes 6.0 through 6.1 is supported

    • Johnathan Jennings

      I did, even OTA. But yeah for sure upgrade.

      • OTA Updates (a.k.a delta updates) usually don’t play nice with jailbreaks.

      • Johnathan Jennings

        How do you know? I’ve done it twice without any problems whatsoever. And now my i5 will do it without any problem whatsoever. Shut the hell up.

      • That’s directly stated by the hackers not to upgrade via OTA, you moron. Try knowing what you’re talking about before you run your mouth.

      • Johnathan Jennings

        That’s from Jeff dumb ass. Hackers say there shouldn’t be a problem. And there won’t be. Watch your dumb ass be wrong.

      • “do not use the software update method found on the iPhone, use iTunes instead. The evad3rs team has recommended this,” stfu up son.

      • Johnathan Jennings

        Recommended– have a fucked up night(:

      • I recommend you to jump off a bridge.

      • Guest

        Funny how I’m reading the fucking tweet from planetbeing explaining not to. Fuck tard.

      • Damn, that guys got his knickers in a knot.

      • Oh shit son, I was just trying to help. Calm the fuck down bro.

      • Guest

        Funny how I’m reading the fucking tweet from planetbeing explaining not to. Fuck tard.

      • What the fuck are you on about? All I was saying was OTA updates (delta updates) usually don’t play nice with jailbreaks. Fuck tard moar pl0x.
        It’s merely a recommendation. I never said it wouldn’t work.

      • ExRoot

        Even the hackers warned against OTA updates. They were just trying to help you. Why would you be so rude?

      • Gucciipad

        Ur not supposed to upgrade ota. Read the directions. Restore n upgrade through iTunes

  • So is there any iPhone 5 ready tweak yet??

    • anasiatka

      Remember that “tweaks” do not need to be updated unless they require settings to be configured; themes will need to be updated, but I would say that there will be plenty to choose from at the time of release and certainly to follow.

  • η¬‘ε‚²ζ±ŸζΉ–

    wowo! wowo !

  • Gucciipad

    My iphone 5 is all backed up. And backing up my ipad 3 right now. To drop box. Tons of pics. First thing I want to download is remote messages. I can’t wait n ready to donate

  • BR

    apple tv 3 needs love to guys lol

    • Falk M.

      Exactly… What the fuck did Apple do “right” to make that device so unjailbreakable?!

      • BR

        hopfully soon lol

  • Matthew

    Is the JB gonna be an update to redsn0w or is it gonna be a whole new evasi0n program?

    • New team, so I bet new program

    • anasiatka

      @disqus_jIsYsCq1bP:disqus From what I have seen on their website, it will be a completely new experience and nothing like what we are used to seeing. I would expect this new version to be amazing graphically and super easy to use. No more guessing and choosing different files etc. as it will “just work.” πŸ™‚

      • Hoping for a one click button. πŸ™‚

      • anasiatka

        @twitter-369569527:disqus Definitely. I am thinking we will see like the last major JB, just a button that says Jailbreak Me. πŸ™‚

  • Curtis

    Cant wait to see Auxo and Ayecon on my i5. . and of course BiteSms

  • Sunday feb 3,2013
    1. Super Bowl
    2. Jailbreak iphone 5
    3. Laugh at friends who jumped ship from iphone to sg3 because they couldn’t wait patiently and now are gonna get fustrated

    • very true,

    • RubberDuckZilla

      greatest comment ever. i laugh at all my friends who left apple for the SG3. they never listen to us apple guys though. haha

      • Couple weeks ago on iDB, there were so many people flaming and saying they were going to switch to another company just because they didn’t have a jailbreak. I’m like LOLS suckers. πŸ™‚

      • RubberDuckZilla

        It’s comical because they were like ” I would never!! ” and 4 months later they leave. This is the greatest slap in the face ever! Hahahahah

      • Tr1pTr0p

        You’re forgetting that not everyone is a brand-loyal sheep.

      • Being brand-loyal does not necessarily mean you’re a sheep. It could also mean you know what quality is.

      • RubberDuckZilla

        I mean if they left for the SG3 it was because 1 or 2 reasons.
        1: they found something in the Samsung they felt was better
        2: they were impatient.
        Either way I gaur enter you now they are shooting themselves in the foot. Loll

      • Tr1pTr0p

        And how would you know the exact reasons why people switched, or how do those people feel right now about the choice they made? There isn’t a way for you to know because simply, there haven’t been any polls. You’re setting up the reasons that would make your argument valid, but It’s nothing but a giant straw man. And next to all of that, you’re mocking people for switching to something they consider to be better. Please, just grow up.

      • RubberDuckZilla

        Well well Mr. Serious, need I remind you that this is based on complete opinion and the views of the one who’s responding to this? I’m sure I don’t so let’s move on. But That’s whys most people leave one thing to go to another because they think its better or they want something new. Here people always leave iPhones because they get tired of them, they say the GUI never changes (which it hasn’t too much) its been the same for 6 years blah blah blah. And the one time it really seemed as if the jailbreak would not be released, they jumped ship. (this is where impatience comes in). Also the galaxy has a slew of features that the iPhones does not. They saw a few shiny things that grabbed their attention like kids in a toy store so they left. (that’s where the they thought they found something that was better part comes in.) You’re welcome.

    • LMAO, this is so true, I almost this this mistake but I sold the SG3 right away lol.

      • RubberDuckZilla

        Good save man! Hahahah

    • yeah them who jumped the gun must be slapping themselves

  • Updated to 6.1 tethered from 5.1.1 and some tweaks and apps don’t work or don’t work quite as expected. I’d wait till the developers update the tweaks and apps IMO.

  • Click on the adds in their website!!

  • I donated $5 to them. πŸ™‚ keep up the good work evad3rs!

  • Dee

    Would 6.02 work for the jailbreak anybody?

    • 6.0.2 is supported, but I’d update to 6.1, just to be on the latest firmware

    • Yes it would work. Software 6.0-6.1

    • Yes, all iOS 6.0, 6.0.1, 6.0.2, 6.1 work with the jailbreak

    • anasiatka

      @disqus_TedSUDbjPk:disqus I agree with @facebook-100002136300838:disqus – but, it depends on your reasons. Do you have any specific reason to not update to 6.1? I can’t think of any reason not to be on the latest version, this could be an issue later on if you are not on the latest version and they stop signing it or something. Any 6.x.x build or 6.1 is supposed as of the release.

  • Wassim Omais

    The progress bar is teasing me now.

    • anasiatka

      @google-fa32d7f533bf7206bcb4cb72099e43b8:disqus Doesn’t it make you want to keep looking at it thinking it will move? πŸ˜€

  • Updating tomOrrow, I will just have to deal with not having a jailbreak for a few days. I guess I can use that time to get accustomed to some of the new features!

    • few days?? try months lol

      • anasiatka

        @facebook-1260988436:disqus What?? According to the Team, JB will release by this weekend… if not sooner. I am anticipating this Saturday honestly, no need to wait if it is done. πŸ™‚

      • i mean some people have gone more then a few months without jb lol like me so i cant wait!!

  • Misspelled ‘support’ in the title.

  • does anyone success jailbreak iphone 4s?

  • Lordthree

    Those iPhone renders are nice!

  • PereZ!

    Off topic question. I’m buying a ipad this weekend I’m not sure if to buy a ipad mini or ipad 2. Any suggestions?

    • Buy one that suits your needs, if you’re out in public a lot, and you need to stay connected, buy a phone, LOLS, but eh, iPad 2 is too big to carry around I think.

      • anasiatka

        @twitter-369569527:disqus I agree. I think that the only way I would go back to a fullsize iPad is if the next Mini does not get Retina. Then, I would have no choice. I think the next iPad Mini will have the A6 and 1GB of RAM – if that is the case, then it will do fine for my needs.

    • Guest
    • anasiatka

      ……………………I’ll bite. I think you should get the iPad Mini. It is less expensive, the same internals and I think looks better. You will not see any differences between the two and I think you’d be better off with iPad Mini. Just keep in mind, any refreshes Apple does (such as iPad Mini Retina) will likely be within the next 3 months or so – at least announced. At that point it will be interesting to see what happens to the iPad Mini (1) as it could then be the $199 tablet that the market is used to seeing. That was very strange but I could not get a @ to work for you PereZ! so hope you see this… Lol.

    • Also the iPad 2 will be dropped by apple before the iPad mini.. Like maybe this year..

  • pauleebe

    Release date is Sunday, February 3, 2013. Notice they photoshopped the “3” on the calendar?

    • Good catch, didn’t notice that, hahaha. πŸ™‚

      • pauleebe

        Yea, apparently no one else did!

  • PoorMe

    Poor me. Im dependent to gevey sim. Until now theres no ios6 unlock. T_T

  • Neil NG

    this will be my best gift for my hard working days on a test :))

  • I wonder if it will use the DFU method or if the software will do everything. I hope it’s the latter cause my home button on my iPhone 4 is kinda screwed up.

  • I just donated 5$ buck via my PayPal account to Jay Freeman (Prpose iOS 6.0/6.1 Jailbreak Team, Ref 26xx …) to show my appreciation for their work. It’s not much but I do my part, and how about you my friends?

  • How is iPhone 3Gs still on that list :() caveman phone
