Whenever a new jailbreak is released, Apple is usually pretty quickly off the mark in releasing a new update to plug the exploits which made said jailbreak possible in the first place. But this time around, it looks as though the 23MB update for the iPhone 4S does little more than it purports, in fixing a few lingering cellular issues.
If you jumped on-board the Evasi0n bandwagon to jailbreak iOS 6 / iPhone 5 last Monday, chances are high that you have been experiencing a number of small issues with how your iOS device performs. Thanks to the Evad3rs team – the people behind the Evasi0n untethered jailbreak – another update has just been pushed out to the Evasi0n untether package on Cydia and the jailbreak tool itself, ensuring that a lot of small bugs are ironed out for a smoother jailbreak experience for new users.
We live in a world where things invariably go wrong from time-to-time, especially when injecting complicated jailbreaks onto our iOS hardware that is made up of various different exploits being forced to work together. Not everyone seems to be affected by the Weather app crashing on the iPhone after running the Evasi0n untethered jailbreak, but if you are one of the affected ones, then we have an interim fix for those who want it rectified before an official installation solution is offered through Cydia.
The Evasi0n jailbreak, arrived in a hail of glory yesterday, and although the wait was tantalizing for those accustomed to Cydia and its treasure trove or tweaks, everything - bar the predictable unpredictability of the Weather (app) - went as planned for the team of Evad3rs. Saurik, also known as Jay Freeman, is the mastermind behind Cydia, and, following a manic first 24 hours, has shared some interesting stats with regards to the jailbreak, notably that its reach is already approaching the two million mark.
The Evasi0n untethered jailbreak for iOS 6 / iOS 6.1 is tantalizingly close now, and with Sunday's almost certain release date fast approaching, the Evasi0n website has been updated once more. Touting the process of preparing the jailbreak tools for public consumption as 75% complete, the Evad3ers team has now begun rolling the Windows and Mac tools to a private pool of beta testers.
Can't contain your excitement for the upcoming untethered iOS 6 jailbreak? We've seen the excitement and enthusiasm in the jailbreak community rising steadily in the last few weeks, eventually reaching boiling point yesterday when the Evad3rs team officially lifted the lid on the Evasi0n jailbreak. While we will need to exercise just a little more patience until we can get our hands on the public release of Evasi0n, the team have happily announced that things are progressing nicely for all the supported platforms.
