evasi0n 1.0 Jailbreak For iOS 6.1 – iOS 6 Released [Updatedx3]


evasi0n, the most eagerly jailbreak of all-time is here! evad3rs dev team has just released evasi0n 1.0 to jailbreak for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch on iOS 6.1, iOS 6.0.2, iOS 6.0.1 and iOS 6.

It is the first jailbreak for iPhone 5, iPad 4, iPad mini and iPod touch 5G.

evasi0n is an untethered jailbreak which supports:

  • iOS 6.1
  • iOS 6.0.2
  • iOS 6.0.1
  • iOS 6.0

It is compatible with the following iOS 6.x.x devices:

  • iPhone 5
  • iPhone 4S
  • iPhone 4
  • iPhone 3GS
  • iPad 4 (4th generation iPad)
  • iPad 3 (3rd generation iPad)
  • iPad 2
  • iPad mini
  • iPod touch 5g
  • iPod touch 4G
  • Apple TV 2

It does not support Apple TV 3 currently. It looks like FireCore will be releasing a new version of Seas0nPass that will allow you to jailbreak Apple TV.

It is available for Mac (10.5 minimum), Windows (XP minimum) and Linux (x86 / x86_64).

The user interface of evasi0n looks quite simple and intuitive like the Absinthe jailbreak and evad3rs dev team have indicated it should take about 5 minutes to jailbreak your iOS device.

Here are some important points from the dev team before you download evasi0n to jailbreak your iOS device:

  • Backup your iOS device using iTunes or iCloud before using evasi0n. This way you are sure to never lose any data if something wrong happens.
  • Please disable the lock passcode of your iOS device before using evasi0n. It can cause issues.
  • Be patient while the jailbreaking process is running, don’t start iTunes or Xcode in the meanwhile. The best is to not touch the computer until the end of the jailbreaking process.
  • If the process gets stuck somewhere, it’s safe to restart the program, reboot the device (if necessary by holding down Hold and Home until it shuts down), and rerun the process.

Head over to our download page to download evasion for Mac, Windows or Linux. [Updated with links to mirror sites]

We’ll be publishing how-to guides shortly. So stay tuned.

If you would like to make a donation to the evad3rs dev team for all their hard work, then visit the evasi0n website and hit the green Contribute button.

Let us know how it goes in the comments.

Note: evad3rs dev team had strongly recommended upgrading to iOS 6.1 doing a full restore using iTunes. So if you had upgraded to iOS 6.1 using the OTA option or using iTunes and are having problems jailbreaking your iOS device with evasi0n, then try doing a full restore using iTunes and then try jailbreaking again to see if it works.

    • http://rounak.me/ Rounak Jain

      did you do a fresh restore to iOS 6.1 or an OTA?

    • JT

      Please make sure that the tweaks are compatible with iOS 6.1. We’ll soon have a post that lists the tweaks that have been updated with iOS 6.1 support. In the meantime you could try to get somehow into safe mode and uninstall the tweak

  • Iphone 4S

    iphone 4S stuck on finding offsets since past 5 mins pls someone help im panicking !

    • Ryu

      did you get iOS 6.1 via Over the air? if so it won’t likely work. You’ll need to restore with a ITunes version to work

  • cartel90

    Jailbroke iphone 4 without a problem and I updated to 6.1 ota.

    • ben

      how long did “finding offsets” take?

  • Ryu

    One thing to please remember is if you installed iOS 6.x Over The Air – Don’t try to Jailbreak without doing a full restore with iTunes first!! (thus changing your install to an iTunes one). This Jailbreak cannot deal with OTA upgraded devices as it does some sort of encryption.

    • http://www.facebook.com/elderchance.clarke Chance Clarke

      This is not true.. I updated to Ios 6.1 over air and everything went fine

  • http://www.facebook.com/kevin.amick.rn Kevin Amick

    Everyone needs to donate and really say thank you to every one of these folks for their very hard work!

    iPhone 5

    • http://twitter.com/db_DESIGN dbDESIGN

      Unplug, hold in home and power -restart and do the process over it should work. The same thing happened to me as well

    • http://www.facebook.com/briandyedamnit Brian Dye

      EDIT- It took about 9 minutes, but finally got past the screen and is now booted up. Trying Cydia now

  • http://www.facebook.com/sanju.baeby Sanju Baeby

    Thank u guys ! u made my day…atlast i got it

  • d-korn

    do not update over the air (OTA), update to 6.1 over itunes, then backup and run the jailbreak. if you are already on 6.1 via OTA, then restore on itunes again to 6.1 !
    both my iphone5 and ipad-mini are jailbroken without any issues.
    both took less than 7 minutes.

  • farid

    it just worked for me

  • me

    jailbreak was smooth on i5hone from Win7 ! Thanks so much guys. I haven’t had success downloading from Cydia but, it’s 12:40pm and I know their servers have to be slammed! Good work, Bravo! I’m looking forward to all my familiar jbAps.

  • Wassup!

    can anyone log onto their account on cydia? Seems to not be working…

  • Nuisance
