evasi0n - troubleshooting - hero

If you’re keeping your eyes locked in on the evad3r’s Twitter account, then perhaps you saw the second tweet hit the wire just a while ago. Indeed, yet another step in the progress of the evasi0n jailbreak tool has been finished.

Now that the tool’s GUI interface has been completed for both Windows and Mac OS X, a few super fortunate, and uber trustworthy individuals, get to perform a private beta test with the tool. 68% completed, only 32% remaining!

evasi0n - beta testing

After the private beta test is completed, then the next step probably involves fixing all of the bugs found within the beta test period. I think it’s safe to say that everything is on schedule to hit the tool’s targeted release date. What do you say?

    Yet another reason to hate Linux users.

    (just kidding, calm down Linux lovers)

    • Zhaneo

      Hahahahah good one!

    • Nvrhde

      There is a world outside Of Apple, bro.

      • Linux is the wrong world though.

      • Nvrhde

        You win,
        This is a Apple blog after all.

      • linux is a waste of life

      • Icecoolg

        Haha! You realize that mac OSX is based on unix, and linux is also based on unix, and that iOS is also based on unix ๐Ÿ™‚ Infact tons of mobile OS like android and stuff are unix/linux based ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Guest

        So? Just because something is based on the same thing, it doesn’t mean that the final product is same. For example, all humans are descendants of the first humans, but we aren’t all the same, you are dumb and I am not. lol

      • Icecoolg

        I don’t think you even read the comment that I replied to. He said that linux is a waist of time, so I pointed out that iOS is unix/linux based. How does that say I’m dumb? And besides, I’m only 13 ๐Ÿ™‚

      • No Whammy

        Linux is in no way based on UNIX.

      • seriously? its core software is UNIX. it uses UNIX commands with a UNIX shell

      • No Whammy

        “It uses UNIX commands” …the commands you speak of are not BASED on UNIX while they do share similar names. You should update Wikipedia with your vast knowledge…let me know how long your edits last.

      • in order to exicute unix based commands you need to be running a unix based operating system.

      • And your beloved Steve Jobs is the one who built it for Next computers, after he got fired from Apple. Do a little research..?

      • Kevin

        are you being serious? Linux is absolutely based on UNIX… What’s his face from across the pond provided the kernal and the program and applications came from the UNIX-based GNU

      • Windows is always best.

      • Surenix

        lol, don’t lose hope ;p

      • Nvrhde


    • Justin

      OS X – AND iOS – IS UNIX BASED!!!!!!!!

      • Guest

        But Linux is not. It is just Unix-like!

      • JomanJi

        That’s what Linux stands for: Linux Is Not Unix ๐Ÿ˜›

    • Okay but Linux is the same software as Mac OS, iOS, & Android…

  • anwarkey

    We can wait three days we waited a lot of before

  • E yooooo! Evaders at work:) 2days for the evasi0n. Such a cute name!;)

  • Jeff u are always one of the lucky ones. U lucky bastard hehehe. Keep up the good work my dude!

    • Z3r0ViP

      I dont think he’s a beta tester, or is he?

      • bloodshed

        as far as i know, jeff isn’t into testing, developing..etc
        guess he hates all that stuff lol

  • Keep preparing for Linux and in the meantime please release it for mac and windows..!!! ๐Ÿ˜›

    • No, I disagree. I will be using the Mac version, but I still want the port to linux to work before they release the Mac and Win version.

      Reason? One or two minor-major bugs will probably be found while porting to linux, so better quality Mac/Win versions because of the port ๐Ÿ™‚

      That being said, I’m sitting grinding my teeth waiting for this to be released!! xD

      • Thanks for enlightening me..!!! ๐Ÿ˜›

      • No problem, maybe you will start programming too one day? ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Crete23

    Going into cryo sleep till Sunday ….

    • But what if it gets released before!?!?!??!?
      Cant risk that!!!

      • yup…already waited for a long time.

      • Crete23

        I will use my time machine to go back in time……hahaha

      • So you will cryo sleep until 2015 and go to the exact spot the DeLorean is going to be parked and go back in time to now, THEEEEN send it on autopilot back to where you took it?

      • Crete23

        Something like that…lol

      • JomanJi

        Meh, I’d use it to see iPhone 7S become jailbroken

      • Anonymous

        Follow them on twitter.@evad3rs

  • I bet it will finish like at 99% and then. “waiting for Sunday because it’s funday”

    • Or it gets to 99% and “Ohh, damn, he found a major issue, won’t be out for another few weeks”

      • Or apple releases 6.1.1 on Saturday fixing bugs and making improvents etc. leaving the ppl who haven’t upgraded stuck in 5.1.1

      • Damn, I’m not sure which would suck more

      • This would only further delay the release by a few days so we got evasi0n for all firmwares in the range of 6.x instead.

  • Hey guys i just donated to the cause. You dont have to but does guys work hard for us to have something we want and need. Any amount is priceless even $1

    • I did my part already too since the Paypal donation link became available. I know it’s not much 5$ but together we can give back more to our admirable hard working developers ๐Ÿ™‚ Come on people do sth!

    • I donated as well. $9.50, not much but every donation adds to a greater amount.

      • Wow Jason you are good ๐Ÿ™‚

      • You too man. Gotta support them in some way as we are getting these jailbreaks for free.

      • I donated 5 bucks a few minutes when the PayPal became available and I often click on add in evasi0n site too. So we’re good ๐Ÿ™‚ Now it’s 1:50 am and I’m waiting for its release. Yo ho

    • Tom

      Really can’t afford to donate this month, but I will after pay day. I’m also going to switch off AdBlock for their site. I don’t mind seeing ads if it means they are getting revenue from it.

    • No Whammy

      “Any amount is priceless even $1” – I don’t even.

  • As a testing professional I would have loved to beta test the app… Only if!

  • How accurate is this progress bar? The coding behind it must be phenomenal to accurately measure in real time the progress of real life.

    lols, it’s late and im tired. ๐Ÿ™

    • It’s probable they’ll just update the source code’s string value to reflect the correct percentage of completion.

  • donated $5. Hope every bit helps.

  • Is there a chance the jailbreak come before Sunday
    I can’t wait any more released Please I have go to the Bathroom!!!!!

  • Bathroom

  • Dudayan

    The next three days gonna be like a year long!!!!

  • Ali

    I hope this jailbreak puts an end to the white icons that appear after delete an App Store app and had to Respring to make it go away!

  • Donated 10$, isnt alot but once it works ill donate more…

  • I’m in 5.1.1 iphone 4S jailbroken and i don’t feel like updating my ios. Too many hassle and too little to gain. Can anyone give me a good reason to update. I have 64 gb iphone with lots of apps and tweaks and files. Last time it took almost 4 hours from backing up, restoring, jailbreaking, and again restoring from back up.
    Anyway thumbs up for the evaders. You guys are awesome.

    • MrShutEmDown

      Dude.. it’ll be a five minute process. Why wouldn’t you just do it. You can’t go three days without a jailbreak, and less than an hour without touching your phone while it updates? Get real fella.

      • Five minute is just for the jailbreak. Like i said earlier, last time it took almost 4 hours to back up/restore/jb/restore from backup. I have lots of apps, tweaks, files in my 64 gb. I didn’t feel like taking those hassles as ios 6 is nothing exciting for me.

    • *Future Apps that only work with 6.x and or above
      *DND (automatic no wake wake when you sleepy xD )
      *Generally a better UX (user experience) minor tweaks you dont notice but your mide loves
      *Siri ever so little more usefull and realistic.
      *Share to Facebook
      *Passbook (if you live in the US maybe youll have a airway ticket or whatnot)
      *FaceTime 3G without a tweak
      *Remove that dreadful youtube app from your phone, and install the new better one
      *Remove that dreadful google maps app, then hide apple maps and install the new google maps (better)
      *Custom SMS vibrations (let your girlfriend shake that phone)
      *Better safari engine (combined with your fav browser and nitrous)
      *Better Appstore (much better IMHO)
      *Dictionary synced over iCloud to your iPad and whatnot
      *Improvements to the HDR algorithm making better pictures
      *Improvements to find my iPhone when its lost
      *Bluetooth MAP support (love thy smart watch)
      *Better touch algorithm (when you touch the screen unwanted in additon)

      AND THE MOST IMPORTANT!!!!1!! BIGGER “REPORT A PROBLEM” button in maps!!!

      • Gilman

        *can fix that with a simple .plist edit
        *never used that before
        *noticed the minor ui tweaks and hate every single one
        *Siri sux
        *who uses passbook? its just another app taking up space
        *who uses facetime?
        *I loved the youtube app and i have yet to find a worthy replacement
        *the google maps was fine and you can download the new one on ios 5
        *that was there before
        *that was there before
        *the new appstore sucks!!! it shows all the apps you search one by one
        *the whole dictionary syncing is probably just another battery issue
        *if you use the built in HDR then you dont care how pics look.
        *it just made the function easier to use. it was there before
        *thats your first valid point and im sure that plenty of people dont use this
        *all i know is that my phone seems to respond more sluggishly to touches.

      • Gilman just leave. Your ruining the excitement of jailbreak for everyone. I believe you meant to visit a android blog.

      • Gilman

        if that ruined your excitement then thats pretty sad.
        ios is way better than android and im just saying that ios 5 is way better than ios 6

      • Gilman, you’re seriously killing the mood around here. Please stop.

      • first you say, not better enough to use the time to upgrade, now you say worse.

        By the time iOS 7 comes out you are going to be using iOS 4

        Oh and the following is not ment offensive, but i try to pick up on any psychological fun facts I can, and it seams you would Vote whatever party that Romney morman guy is with, right?

      • *no you cant, not when it uses something from iOS6+ SDK
        *because you dont have iOS6
        *because your conservative and need to be more creative to make better neuro pathways
        *yes and less after every other update
        *yes, but if you like starbux and flying, its usefull
        *no one cause they are on 3G instead of wifi
        *the new official youtube app is a worth replacement, better by far
        *yes and more features in iOS6
        *no that was for calls
        *i disagree, names are nothing if you dont know what your looking for (which you will get in first place if you do)
        *no it piggy backs on the other systems
        *Yes I do, HDR on a DSLR if for art, on a phone its for making decent pictures
        *i said improvements, and now i say features
        *no, SDK, DND, Youtube, GMaps, Appstore
        *you can now touch it from the side or what not and unlock +++

  • Might get rick rolled again or a big Bazinga sign

  • Yes! A bit more to freedom from this jail!

  • Gilman

    When the jailbreak comes out, will I be able to downgrade my 4s to iOS 5.1.1?
    I don’t like iOS 6…

    • iOS 5 and iOS 6 are almost the same…

      • Gilman

        I know, but I find that iOS 5 is more to my liking for a variety of reasons

      • hello ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Gilman

        uh, hi

      • Gilman

        so will I?

      • No. Stop trolling.

      • RarestName

        Exactly. I won’t go through the hassle of updating my 4S from 5.1.1 to 6.1 just to jailbreak.

      • I use the AppleTV so I would rather have 6.1 with AirPlay bugfixes. Also I hate the update badge something bad xD (I know there is a tweak for that)

  • Rose Carrero

    Hey guys! I am on 5.0.1 with iphone 4 and 4.10.01 baseband. Would it make sense to upgrade to 6.1? I do have saved shsh’s. Would have liked to have upgraded to 5.1.1 don’t know how but unsure as to whether or not to upgrade to 6.1. Thanks!!

  • Is it me or does the evad3rs’ website look like one of them fake jailbreak websites? Hahah I know they’re not. Thanks guys

  • I CAN’T WAIT!!!!!

  • Spartan117

    The update came out monday around afternoon and they got 68 percent so far will there be a chance it could come either today or tomorow instead of waiting for another 3 days ? Just a question

    • batongxue

      nobody knows the answer. LOL

    • But the first 68% might have been the fast easy stuff and the remaining 32% might be the hardest/take the longest.

  • Nouman

    I UPDATE OVER THE AIR. WHAT NOW???(iphone 5 plz help me)

    • ur just sol-jwf

    • shoken

      restore your device on itunes

    • Gucciipad

      Ur supposed to retore then upgrade over iTunes. Ppl can’t read.

  • Stacy

    Can we jailbreak iPad 4 with this upcoming jailbreak or is it illegal to do tht?

  • I love this new site and the update status bar that they are showing. Thanks Evad3rs!!!

  • If u can’t afford to donate to these awesome guys, the least you can do is click on the ads/sponsors on their pages they more than likely get paid per click. Same goes for idownloadblog’s sponsors!

    • No Whammy

      Maybe buy a gram less weed?

      • I was not talking about ME stupid. I have money, and I will donate once jailbroken. Don’t assume things. Just pointing out that clicking on ads on sites makes the site money….I have donated for every jailbreak that I have used because I appreciate it so much.

      • and also why would anyone want to buy less weed? your an idiot.

      • weed is illegal i don’t ever buy any..

      • it depends on what state you live in retard. Weed is 100% legal in my state.

      • No Whammy

        It doesn’t really depend does it? It’s illegal federally, amirite?

      • You are right, but alcohol was once illegal federally too…..One day, when people realize how stupid this law is. It will be legal, state by state and they will have no choice but to make it legal. Your the one who brought this up anyways with your smartass comment that you moderated and edited “maybe buy a gram less weed?” you dont have a fucking clue about anything. I get medical marijuana anyways so please STFU.

      • No Whammy

        What I said was in regards to associating with a culture of losers, ie. your avatar is a leaf and your name is 420 + kush. You amazingly clever rebel you. Please tell us about your illustrious career at Pizza Hut.

      • Speeding is also illegal, you tell me you have never gone over the speed limit?

  • Icecoolg

    If they announce at the last minute that its fake, then I think that the world will face the biggest drop in hope it has ever seen ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Have they said if the jailbreak will be completely automatic or if it requires DFU mode? I ask because my phone’s home and power button don’t work so well.

    • redsn0w have an option for that case

      • I assume I would have to wait longer for redsnow’s tool to come out.

  • queen_ir3ne

    Trying to weigh which is more important: My home team Ravens playing at the Superbowl, or this jailbreak I’ve been eagerly waiting for forever. Lol. I’m excited either way. A Sunday to look forward to ๐Ÿ™‚

  • John

    Pod2g tweeted “@pod2g: About evasi0n release. Nothing is certain. Can be sunday, after, or before!”

  • a smit

    wooooooosh <- the sound as that was made as his comment went waaay over your head

  • bartuus


  • WTH! Site is not opening!

  • ETA

  • zblur

    Wah,…..i`m happy for that…good news..

  • So I just updated my iPad and iPod touch OTA…. was that bad? and can I fix it?? I heard that you needed to update over iTunes to get the jailbreak…Crap.

  • Guest

    Linux is not Unix-based, just Unix-like…

  • You all talk shit about Linux but you realize without Steve Jobs Linux wouldn’t exist. His ass got fired from Apple and started the Next Computer company, running a similar Unix operating system to Mac, called Linux .. And it’s because of Next (& Linux) that he got rehired by Apple and eventually became CEO again. And without Linux we couldn’t build the biggest super computers either. the PS3 super computer built by the navy was a great example.

    • AND, more servers in the world run Linux then windows or mac, because it’s easier to use and has less problems. n All that cool shit that’s cloud based on your iDevices’ are ran and connected by Linux servers.

      • Did i mention lighwieght? im a windows fan, but respect and credit should be given where it’s due. wether your fanboys or not.

  • Dron

    I’m on windows,but if it happens to be that the mac version will come out first, I might just go to my local apple store to JB my i5.

    It can be done in 5 minutes right? I just have to look over my shoulder though ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • andsun

    is evaders jailbreak tools free?

  • I just wish that they release the tool as early as possible.

  • Wikipedia is the last place to research something…. if you know what your talking about you should know that.
