evasi0n iOS 6.x Jailbreak Progress Update: Private Beta Testing Has Started

evasi0n_progress_update

evad3rs dev team has updated the status of the evasi0n jailbreak on their website.

According to the the progress bar on the website, they’ve now completed 75% of the work required for the jailbreak. Yesterday, the progress bar was at 68% after they confirmed that the apps for Mac and Windows were completed.

They’ve also mentioned that they’re working on the Linux client for the evasi0n jailbreak and private beta testing has started for Mac and Windows version of the apps.

pod2g has also briefly commented that they are “close to the release.” While it is widely speculated that the evasi0n jailbreak will be released on Sunday, Friday 3rd, pod2g had clarified yesterday that the release date is not certain.

So while I’m sure you’re excited and can’t wait for the jailbreak to be released, please be patient. It is important that they test the jailbreak thoroughly to avoid bugs that could brick your iOS device.

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.

      I don’t know exactly who the —- you think you are, but demanding anything from the Dev Team is exactly the wrong thing to do. They NEED to test test TEST everything to avoid potentially disastrous problems that could both brick your phone AND void the warranty at the same time.

      So maybe you need to cool it and wait the few more days to make sure we get a quality product.

    “Without the jb iPhone is useless for me.”
    Likewise, I just purchased (today) an iP5 today, because the jb is nearly ready. :)

    • Damani Brown

      Why not simply wait for the next iPhone. You’re about to be one of those “out of date” iPhone users. They aren’t cool. LOL

  • Alexx

    • Mini

      ooooh one person hates Samsung. Big f*cking deal
      iPhone 5 without jailbreak so boring.

      In case you haven’t realized, Apple did use some of the jailbreak tweak concepts and implemented into iOS.

    same old tired roundabout

  • Hazmobile

    Just out of curiosity, are there many Linux users out there? I would have thought that majority iphone users would have a Mac or win pc at least. And if there are many Linux user, are they totally reliant on that?

  • Luis Rivera

    I can’t wait. I’m used to donate $20.00 per device. Also, I jailbreak for my friends but make them donate first. One million thanks to the evad3rs…

  • Jays_on

    To my knowledge they never waited to release a JB on account of Linux , sounds fishy to me!

    • me

      That’s not what the article says, idiot.

      • In their defense…

        In the original posters defense, the evasion website itself currently says Linux is the reason why it’s not finished yet.

  • BELIEVER

    oh noooooo!

  • BELIEVER

    oh God please help the JB DREAM TEAM !! ;)

  • Lick my left nut

    I have donated to the research and development to the JB, I am a developer and understand the hours and hours of time and work that goes into such a project, nothing like this can be rushed all the clowns that complain can lick my left nut! And go buy cheap plastic jelly bean or what ever lollie they are up to and then complain when the device runs as good as a 5th hand 2 stroke lawn mower made in china. There are soooooooo many takers in this world who want JB for free, I say to all the free loaders, how about you make the JB and let us break your balls about the free release of it! Then you might start to understand the difficulty in such a time consuming (non profit) project done in spare time among other things……. Yes all devices can be JB for ages on ios 6 but the problem is with a public release without the need of a dev account….
