New iOS 6.x jailbreak to be called ‘evasi0n’

By , Jan 30, 2013

The iOS 6.x jailbreak has a name, and it’s ‘evasi0n.’ The evad3rs—a team of hackers made up of musclenerd, pod2g, pimskeks, and planetbeing—have just launched their official website. And their first post is a big one.

Not only does it give the name of the new jailbreak, but it also shows their progress on it, what the requirements will be to run it, and other details…

From the website, under a section labeled ‘Requirements’:

  • 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

So it looks like the project is moving along nicely. The site says that the team is in the process of finishing the GUI, and that the next step is private beta testing. And judging by the status bar, it looks like they’re 60% done.

I also found the ‘Credits’ section to be pretty interesting, as it thanks well-known theme designer Surenix and both chronic and iPhone dev teams for their support. Surenix, as most of you know, designed the evad3rs logo.

Finally, it’s worth mentioning that there is a ‘Donate’ button at the bottom of the website, if you would like to contribute. As always, iDB advocates supporting those that put in countless hours of work so we can free our devices.

We’ll let you know as soon as the site is updated, or we receive more information regarding evasi0n. Until then, make sure to check out our post on how to prepare for the upcoming jailbreak.

      The best thing is he has probably already checked it out which will in turn earn the evad3rs money and I bet he will use the #evasi0n JB tool to JB his iDevices without contributing!

    evade my iphone now, please.

  • Eduardo Pacheco

    All my devices are running 6.1 and just waiting for the release.

  • JerseyD

    There is a donate link also. Give generously. This is worth more than any app or cydia package.

    • http://twitter.com/Grolubao Grolubao

      I will donate as soon as it’s out

      • blu

        Same here. I have never donated for a jb, but I now realize how much I depend on jb and how hard it is to jb

    So pumped!

  • http://www.facebook.com/lucas.kunert Lucas Kunert

    Wow, they’re working on the GUI already. That makes me believe they’ve done the hard part (coding the insertion into the OS) and will then do private beta testing. Maybe if they finish GUI today/tomorrow they’ll beta test a few days and release it on Sunday. Tight schedule but I believe!

  • http://twitter.com/tolbaswagger Abdul Tolba

    • Zhaneo

      Lol 6.1 is out….

      • http://twitter.com/joshrfunk ▶ Josh Funk ◀

        I’m pretty sure he/she was talking about the pending release of the jailbreak, not iOS 6.1.

      • Zhaneo

        Read again.

        “THIS GUYS ARE THE SHIIT.U REALY HAVE TO HAVE BALLS TO CALL APPLE OUT AND DERE THEM TO RELEASE IOS 6.1 ITS NOT EVEN OUT”

        He’s clearly stating that 6.1 isn’t released yet.

        “AND THEY ALL READY HAVE THE JB”

        By his logic, they didnt need 6.1 to test out things….

    • JorgeMD

      Umm… iOS 6.1 was already released.

      • http://www.facebook.com/tonykkaram Tony Karam

        If you re-read carefully: “u really have to have balls to call apple out and DARE them to release iOS 6.1″. Well as i see it, that guy is saying some good stuff about the hackers. I think he meant to say that they already had the JB before Apple released iOS 6.1.

    • http://twitter.com/snakefeet86 jonathan helliwell

    Anyone else planning to stay on 5.1.1 like me?
    Is there really a reason to move to 6.1?

    • Zhaneo

      Lol this wont work on Ios5…

      • Guest

        I think he means that he is fine with not updating to iOS 6 because he is already JB’n.

      • anasiatka

        So that’s how Guest posts show up… I clicked Delete on this… Instead of deleting the post, it just removed my name from it. @seb481:disqus is this a bug with Disqus?

      • anasiatka

        @zhaneo:disqus I think he means that he is fine with not updating to iOS 6 because he is already JB on 5.1.1.

    • johnhicks06

      there really are a lot of new features in iOS 6, I personally would not want to go back to iOS 5, even though there are less tweaks available at the moment. I’m sure once the untethered jailbreak is public, devs will start updating their cydia apps/tweaks for iOS 6. What is the reason not to update? you’ll have more features and improvements from apple and still be able to have an untethered jailbreak.

    • anasiatka

      @twitter-22465276:disqus I guess it depends on your device; I say that when I updated my 4s it was a nice improvement, mainly because of the Apple Maps application that was more fine tuned and in my experience more pleasant to use. However, some people (maybe a little more than some) cursed it and I never understood their reasons. If you are used to JB’ing, then I say go for it because you can try out Apples Map application and if you don’t like it then install Google Maps (which is a more updated version then the built-in iOS 5.x.x Maps) and use a tweak to use that as the default maps application. However, honestly the Map application was to me the only real thing worth updating. Nothing else appealed to me. I don’t use Safari, so any features related to that I could care less for. I will say that I missed my JB and can not wait until Funday. However, to be honest – until you can JB your device I would just wait and then update, regardless of your device. Hope that helps? BTW, if not for the Maps I would still be at 5.1.1. :)

    • http://www.facebook.com/jamess0000 Jaime Alan Mendez Castro

      new youtube app and security updates of course… ;)

    • http://twitter.com/iAmManny74 Manny A. Canales

      If you have an A5 iOS Device, like the iPhone 4S, I would update because iOS 6.1 is optimized to run smoother on such devices. If you are have an A4 iOS device, like an iPhone 4, I would think about updating; older iOS devices running the newest iOS, not the *best* experience. Also, another thing you have to consider, most App Store apps are being updated to run on iOS 6.x.

    Awesome my iPod is ready to be evaded

    I just donated $100 to continue the cause…

      • http://twitter.com/_nerd The Nerd

        You don’t need PayPal to donate. It just uses it, but it supports nearly everything.

  • josh

    donating soon as its out also

  • canucks23

    the date on the calendar on the devices in the evasi0n pic are all february 3rd, which is this sunday :D

      Good eye, Apple style.

  • http://twitter.com/azizbandeali Aziz Bandeali

    That’s so lame I cannot donate …. PayPal doesn’t work in Pakistan either .. PayPal u suck… My bestest wishes , warmest regards and millions of thanks for making this JB possible .. You guys are worth a million… Thanks once again to all evaders team members for giving your time and putting the efforts to make this possible.

  • Mohammad Ridwan

    I hope it doesn’t require DFU Mode… my home button is broken… :’(

    • http://twitter.com/rud0lf77 Rudolf Lichtner

      It obviously does not, as it’s likely a Userland Jailbreak.

  • http://twitter.com/tciitb TheCatIsInTheBag

    why the name is always “j41lbr34k”-like? i mean… is there a reason for it or is just lack of originality?

  • http://www.facebook.com/bjhooper Brandon Hooper

    I donated $2. That’s nothing compared to what it’s worth to have a JB 5. I’ll donate more after if its a good JB.
