If you were one of the thousands who were busy hitting refresh right when evasi0n was about to release, you’d have noticed that the download links exceeded their capacity pretty soon. Thankfully, the evad3rs team anticipated this, and setup a number of mirrors for each version of the tool. We have some statistics about the the evasi0n jailbreak tool, thanks to a few tweets by members of the evad3rs team.
evasi0n was downloaded more than a 100,000 times within just 10 minutes of its release, as noted in a tweet by planetbeing. He added that the team’s signed up for 2TB of bandwidth on Box.com, and they blew through half of that limit within just 10 minutes.
As of now they’ve used 4.2 TB of bandwidth on Box.com’s servers, which at around 10 MB per download comes to around 450,000. And that’s just one of the mirrors. The site has three listed.
pod2g added that the evasi0n.com website saw more than 270,000 concurrent visitors, which presumably was the peak at around the time of release.
