Evad3rs Dev Team Confirms iOS 6.1 is Safe For Jailbreakers, And Looks Like Sunday May Be Funday [Updatedx2]


We’ve some great news.

planetbeing and MuscleNerd of the evad3rs team has just confirmed that it is safe to upgrade to iOS 6.1, which was seeded an hour back.


Please check Update 2 before you update your iOS device to iOS 6.1.

That didn’t take much time. As soon as iOS 6.1 was available for download, planetbeing had said that they were reviewing the public version of iOS 6.1.

A few moments back, MuscleNerd has confirmed that it is safe to update to iOS 6.1. So jailbreakers can go and update to iOS 6.1 and wait for the evad3rs dev team to release the jailbreak.

MuscleNerd has also hinted that the jailbreak could be released on Sunday:

As we had reported earlier, the jailbreak will support all iOS 6.1 compatible devices, except for Apple TV 3. So the following iOS devices will be supported:

  • iPhone 5, iPhone 4S, iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS
  • iPad 4, iPad 3, iPad 2, iPad mini
  • iPod touch 5G, iPod Touch 4G
  • Apple TV 2

Update 1:

MuscleNerd has just confirmed that Apple TV 2 will also be supported.

Update 2:

pimskeks of the Evad3rs has just clarified that if jailbreakers want to update to iOS 6.1 then they should do a full restore via iTunes and not take the OTA route:

We’ll update the post as soon as we’ve more clarity.

    • Nemo

      They said it will be available possibly on Sunday

  • DON

    they said,if 6.1 will release they gonna release the jailbreak

    • http://profiles.google.com/sebastian.rasch Sebastian Rasch

      They never said that. They said they will hold on until iOS 6.1, but not when exactly they will release it.

    Superbowl aint nobody got time for that i rather jailbreak!

  • m Arch Tom’s on Bar N Ass

    i cant’see any mention of build number. is this the same as 6.1 beta5. marc

  • DON

    really? give me 1 good reason why they dont give the jailbreak today.

    • Jimothy

      So they can work out all the bugs and make sure there is no risk to your device.

      • DON

        youre so naief

        • Jimothy

          I think it’s trying to communicate with us!

          • pakaku

            And why is it so difficult to wait for Sunday? I suggest calming down and taking a stroll outside for a bit. YOU CAN WAIT. Ugh.

          • Jimothy

            No big, no big. I am calm so I knew it wasn’t for me. You’re okay. :D

          • pakaku

            …And I just replied to the wrong person :D

        • duped???

          is that meant to be nice in drunk talk?? ahh it is meant to spell naive

          your so ileferate haha

    • Apel P

      Dude, your the kind of dipshits of why people give up on jailbreaking. Your complaining about something you get for free, that people send there time doing for your pleasure.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=651515195 Tomas Lee Zuniga

    what if apple is just trying to screw us over by releasing another version on Friday? that’ll leave aloe of people stuck on 6.1x if they can patch the exploits

    • pakaku

      Assuming that’s Apple’s plan… what would be so special about 6.2 that would make everyone regret being stuck on 6.1?

      As an aside, I’ve been sticking with 5.1.1 and have never felt the urge to update. So it could be me…

      • Matt

        Same here. And I really can’t wait for this jb cos my 4s was factory preinstalled with 5.1.1 so I was never able to restore 5.1.1. Only an update to 6 was my option… My phone is so slow and laggy by now haha xD But I prefered to stay on jailbroken 5.1.1 anyway.

    patience.the jailbreak is soon here.thank you guys for the hard work and thanks to iphone hacks also for your hard work,updating us on news all the time.

  • Deal Farrell

    Thank you for your hard work! can’t wait, I miss my jail break fun.

  • questionMan

    crap. I already did the OTA update before the second article update. Am I screwed, or can I later do a full iTunes restore, and be OK?

    • pakaku

      I think they’re saying it only applies to the 6.1 update itself, since that’s the OS to be jailbroken.

    • Apel P

      I’m not 100% sure, but if you restore later I don’t see the problem. You should be fine as long as you restore before Jailbreaking.

      • Logicalx

        They said do not do an over the air update so people can RESTORE back to the same firmware once Apple stop signing it. I.e using redsn0w later one to restore and re-jailbreak…..

    • Jimothy

      Just restore to 6.1 through iTunes. You’ll be fine. :)

  • duped???

    imagine if the hackers are having us all one, secret apple employees with the intention to upgrade to 6.1 haha, trust no one , not even your mother

    • http://www.facebook.com/JLDeBias Jason Lee DeBias Sr.

      If your so worried then don’t update yet until the jailbreak is out…. IDK why you would be thinking that anyway….. Just saying.

      • duped???

        sorry Jason im uber stoned and always think CONSPIRACY !!

        was meant to be tongue in cheek but i have a feeling apple wont take this lying down

        • Apel P


  • http://www.iphonehacks.com iPhoneHacks

    You should avoid upgrading as it will update the baseband and you won’t be able to unlock it using Ultrasn0w.

    • 93.93.93

      does that mean the 6.1 update/jailbreak is not for me in any case or do i just need to wait for information on how to perform that jailbreak WITHOUT automatically upgrading my baseband too? thanks!!

      • RandomGamer342

        You need to wait for a way to upgrade iOS without upgrading baseband

        • 93.93.93

          thanks! i hope this will happen, regarding the latest info that ota sync should be avoided and full apple restore performed instead… :/

  • http://www.facebook.com/JLDeBias Jason Lee DeBias Sr.

    That’s Awesome!!! it will be great to be untethered again!!!

  • http://profiles.google.com/sebastian.rasch Sebastian Rasch

    This is so awesome. Still can’t believe it really, finally will have my iPhone 5 jailbroken! :)

    • Apel P

      Ya I know. I was kinda not expecting it. I thought they gave up on us, because off people like DON, in the comments.

      • duped???

        yeh that bloody Don!!, his fault for the recession in the u.k , makes my blood boil, the Don’s of this world.. grrr

  • daman

    What not released now? why sunday? Desperate need JB now…Thanks for all the great works the team has done.

  • Nytowl

    What is OTA upgrade mean?

    • Apel P

      Over The Air. Updating through settings.

  • Apel P

    Stupid Question. But we can OTA right now and then when jailbreak is released just restore right?

    • nzhong168

      +1 Just did the OTA before seeing this tweet. Hope it still works.

      • surfin4hot

        backup and restore via itunes would help.

  • Rissulko

    Come on guys! We’ve waited for almost half a year. Few more days shouldn’t be THAT bad, right? ;)

  • duped???

    Just this minute i have successfully saved my 6.0.1 blobs from my iphone 5 using newest version of tiny umberella, suggest you guys do the same

  • Confused

    Question: would this support an iPod 3rd Gen? I just found my old one and it’s outdated, should I do an update to 6.1? Just wondering since 3rd Gen isn’t listed.

    • http://twitter.com/td9175 Dale Brauer

      iPod 3rd gen isn’t supported by iOS 6 at all, I’m afraid. So you’ll only be able to upgrade to 5.1.1 if anything.

      • Confused

        Welp. Too late. My younger cousin had updated when I was at work. I havent even gotten the blobs off it yet….

        Such a dark day has transpired.

  • Jiv3Turk3y

    So I don’t have to upgrade to 6.1 though if I don’t want to and the JB should still work when it’s released right? Pretty stoked about this news!!

  • i Molen

    All the jailbreaker, don’t PUSHED the EVAD3RS to release evasi0n soon!!!

    have you contribute for they hard work, even $1???
