We told you earlier in the week that the new jailbreak would be called Evasi0n and at that time the team behind the jailbreak were still working on the GUI (graphical user interface). The good news is that it is still on target for a Super Bowl Sunday release and the jailbreak has now entered its private beta testing phase and that means it is 80% complete.
The jailbreak progress has been rapid since iOS 6.1 was released; with versions already completed for Windows, Mac ad Linux too. The next step after the private beta testing is what the Evad3r team are calling “extended beta testing”, we assume that will involve rolling the jailbreak out to a select few for final testing.
Although things can change especially if bugs are discovered, it is still looking highly likely that the Evasi0n jailbreak will be made available sometime this Sunday. The jailbreak will require no more than five minutes of your time and will need to be done by tethering your device to a Mac, PC or Linux machine for one time only. Your device will need to be running a minimum of iOS 6.0. The Evasi0n jailbreak will cover all iPhone, iPod touch, iPad and iPad mini models capable of running iOS 6.
A word of warning, there are a few fake sites popping up claiming to host the jailbreak or that the jailbreak is already available. None of these sites should be trusted; the only place to find the jailbreak will be Evasi0n.com.
