evasi0n iOS 6.x Jailbreak Progress Update: Now 85% Complete


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.


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

We’ll let you know as soon as there is any updates,  so don’t forget to join our Facebook Fan page or follow us on Twitter or add us on Google+ or subscribe to our RSS feed.

In the meantime, please don’t forget to check out this post to find out how to prepare for the evais0n jailberak for iOS 6.x.

    • Brice

      Only becuase they can’t update to IOS 6! But I bet if you were to use whited00r they would works on the IOS 6.1 untethered jailbreak!

      • Kenan

        Whited00r doesn’t update the device to iOS 6, it just installs some of the features from it, like siri and the app switcher.

      • peros

        People asking and asking again and again,if there device support jailbreak with evasi0n.Even if its says clearly they still asking,so i just make this post so they can understand little better. Dont confuse thems with Whited00r.And as Kenan says its only installs some of the features.

  • Pussy Whisperer.

    If the progress bar shows realistic values then I believe they won’t finish the jailbreak today.

    • red fruit bite

      i agree, 85%? ummmmmmmmmmmmhhh….. i can imagine the hard worked they doing , since they posted this status..

    • S K

      I agree, but they may release let’s say the Windows or Mac version when it’s ready, while still working on the Linux port.

  • midhun3197

    What time will it be released ?? Time in GMT please….here its already 3.00PM in Saudi Arabia!! Cant wait to JB my iPad3 !!!! its annoying when I refresh the page and still see the status bar unchanged !!! :(

  • Andrew

    If the website is showing the true status, then I don’t see it being released today. However I would love to be proved wrong.

  • Jsmith

    No Jailbreak today sports fans. Perhaps in a couple more days. Oh well.

  • S K

    Guys, donate donate donate when they successfully release the jailbreak, even if it’s only a couple of $! I am sure they are not only doing it for the money, but making it worth their while is the only way we can make sure they will also have the time and resources to work on future jailbreaks.

    • JCT

      lol except the team never said they would release today we were like hints but they never admited to it.

  • http://www.facebook.com/ryan.isadore.1 Ryan Isadore

    To those complaining or whining about the release time and date… Shut up! These guys have to sleep and they have lives apart from the JB. They didn’t promise it would be out today. They’re making sure to test it completely so when everyone starts running it our devices to brick. Chill the hell out and have some patience. We all want it, but i don’t want to lose my phone cuz they missed something by doing a rush job.

    • Andrew

      Even when u brick your IPhone. DFU mode always saves the day.

  • iphone 5
