evasi0n jailbreak is 75% complete, private testing has begun

By , Feb 1, 2013

evasi0n 75 percent

As most of you know, the iOS 6.x jailbreak got official this week. The evad3rs launched their website on Wednesday, unveiling evasi0n, the software that’s going to break our devices free from Apple’s chains.

Also on the website is a progress bar, which gives an updated look at how close the jailbreak is to completion. And if you looked at it this morning, you would have noticed that it just jumped to 75% complete…

While the Linux version of evasi0n is still in the works, both OS X and Windows apps are finished. In fact, private beta testing has begun on the latter two, and the next step is listed as ‘extended beta testing.’

Once all versions are complete, and have been thoroughly tested, evasi0n should be nearly ready for public release. All signs point to Sunday, but pod2g said ‘nothing is certain.’ It could be sooner or later than that.

As we’ve said before, the evasi0n jailbreak will work on all iOS devices running iOS 6.0 or later, with the exception of the Apple TV 3. If you have any more questions, check out our post on jailbreak preparation.

        Next time you’ll learn patience and to wait.

        Naah who I am kidding, you are an apple fanboy, you’ll never understand patience.

    If it does in fact get released Sunday, does anyone know about what time it would go live (from past releases, etc.)?

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1380073379 Quang Truong

      as i remember, last time the jailbreak tweak released at 6am. I didnt sleep that night cause i had work. When I got home, i checked iDownloadblog and here we go, the first jailbreak news. I <3 iDownloadblog :)

      • http://www.facebook.com/liamsagooch Liam Googolplex Merlyn

        I was at work last time it was released so must have been between 12-5PM GMT

  • http://twitter.com/CTBoundi84 Jesse Clemonts

    Today even tomorrow would make this week a great week. Funday works too. Earlier is better.

  • sault

    I want it NOW. :-)

    “Evad3rs” Super heros of Jailbreak community. :D

  • Zorvage

    YES! ALMOST!!

  • http://twitter.com/jedediahdaniel Jedediah Kramer

    I guess iDB missed the tweet by the evad3ers showing the time the jailbreak is going to be released in each region

    • http://twitter.com/e420kush e420Kush

      Where might that info be?

      • http://twitter.com/jedediahdaniel Jedediah Kramer

        It’s on the evad3ers twitter page, they tweeted a pic about 7hrs ago. Check it out @evad3rs_jb I replied to another person on this thread with the link but it was awaiting moderation.
        Basically, if you are in the US, it’s 1 PM EST and 12 PM Central on Sunday, and so on.

      • scottsheble

        That’s a fake account, dumbass.

      • http://twitter.com/jedediahdaniel Jedediah Kramer

        I did not know that. But i bet you feel better for calling me a dumbass.

      • http://www.facebook.com/trevorsalmon Trevor Salmon

        the real twitter account is @evad3rs

  • http://twitter.com/EaglesPride_ Aleandro green

    would this be for iphone 5?

    • http://www.facebook.com/liamsagooch Liam Googolplex Merlyn

      Jeez, why does everyone keep asking this? It’s been said dozens of times “All devices that run iOS6.X”

      • http://www.facebook.com/SpideyRules Scott Curry

        Yeah but will it do my iPhone 5? :P

        (Go learn how to sense sarcasm if you want to jump down my throat right now)

      • http://www.facebook.com/liamsagooch Liam Googolplex Merlyn

        It’s incredibly difficult to “sense” sarcasm over text. But my bad, with all the morons asking that question seriously, it kinda makes it hard to figure whos being serious

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1380073379 Quang Truong

    everytime i go to iDownloadblog, I hope i see “evasi0n jailbreak tool for iOS 6.1 released.” :)

    • http://twitter.com/e420kush e420Kush

      With everything pointing at Sunday I doubt It will be released before then.

    • 1456798762

      why not just go to their website???

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1380073379 Quang Truong

        Cause its kind of boring on their website. Also, waiting for a jailbreak alone is not funny. Moreover, I <3 iDownloadBlog

  • kings121

    I cant wait to see IntelliScreenX on my ip5!!!!

  • Ep

    Apple TV 3 JB where is? So sad :(

  • http://twitter.com/rkiphonerepair Rkiphonerepairs

    they wants money first then will release jailbreak,lol.

  • miguel.enlace@hotmail.com

    Do you think the next Jailbreak will be a “Slide to Jailbreak” type of jailbreak ?

    Although we haven’t seen this type of jailbreak since @comex released JailbreakMe, some clues are pointing us into that direction.

    hint 1 : @evad3rs logo

    • http://www.facebook.com/liamsagooch Liam Googolplex Merlyn

      While I can’t remember what it was, something last week suggested that it wouldn’t be a Slide to Jailbreak and just the standard tool for Mac/Win/Linux

    • miguel.enlace@hotmail.com

      hint 2 : the iOS security team submitted a paper entitled, “Swiping through modern security features”

      hint 3 : @planetbeing just tweeted “yes, it’ll be Mountain Lion friendly (but ML not required) ”

      Why won’t it be required ? And why the smiley face right after ? You make your own calls

      • http://www.facebook.com/liamsagooch Liam Googolplex Merlyn

        Ooo I missed that last one, perhaps I’m wrong then, I sure hope I am, I’d love this kind of jailbreak, I never got to experience the JailbreakMe tool

      • Ben

        Hint 4: Why would they have a website if all they are going to do is have an image with the JB percentage on it. They could just post a picture on Twitter.

  • http://twitter.com/HackiPhone5 HackiPhone5

    This sunday is the super bowl Jailbreak vs Apple :)

    • Ben

      Seems legit…

  • chimp

    i cant wait lol

  • Mat

    Please disable the lock passcode of your iOS device before using evasi0n. It can cause issues

    • Joe

      Backup your iOS device using iTunes or iCloud before using evasi0n. This
      way you are sure to never lose any data if something wrong happens.

      • Mat

        Be patient while the jailbreaking process is running, don’t start iTunes
        or Xcode in the meanwhile. The best is to not touch the computer until
        the end of the jailbreaking process.

    I’m happy enough even if I have to wait a bit longer than Sunday; I remember when some months ago, there was no light at the end of the tunnel, compare that to where we are now, we couldn’t complain if it’s not released this weekend- I guess I don’t mind sticking around a bit longer for the sake of stability and functionality . :)

    Keep up the good work, guys. My support’s with Evad3rs!
