evad3rs dev team has just updated the status of the evasi0n jailbreak for iOS 6.1, iOS 6.0.2, iOS 6.0.1 and iOS 6.

Earlier today, we had reported that they had completed 80% of the work required for the jailbreak

According to the the progress bar on the evasi0n website, they’ve now completed 85% of the work required for the jailbreak.

They have also mentioned that the first major round of testing has concluded successfully on Windows and Mac.  The next step as we reported earlier was to test on more iOS device and firmware combinations.

It is great to know that the first round of testing was successfully, without any major hiccups. planetbeing had said that they had discovered some edge cases, which have been fixed.

It remains to be seen if they’ll be able to complete the testing and release the jailbreak today (it’s Sunday in most parts of the world). While I can’t wait for the jailbreak, it is very important that they test the jailbreak thoroughly to avoid bugs that could brick our iOS device.

Update:

evad3rs dev team has just confirmed that the evasi0n jailbreak will be released on Monday, February 4th.
