The Evasi0n iOS 6 untethered jailbreak is now 85% complete!


We are now officially one step closer to the untethered iOS 6 jailbreak folks! The Evasi0n site has just been updated to show that the jailbreak is now 85% complete...

The Evad3rs have confirmed that, "the first major round of testing concluded successfully on Windows and Mac." Now the next step in the process is to test the jailbreak on more iOS device and firmware combinations.

While we still have 15% to go, I think at this point it’s safe to assume that the jailbreak may actually be released today. All signs and hints have pointed to the jailbreak releasing on Super Bowl Sunday, and the progress made over the past couple of days gives us even more hope. If everything goes smoothly, we may finally have the jailbreak in our hands within hours of this post. The Evad3rs have also posted the following in a new 'read me' note:

  • 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.
