Following on from the release of iOS 6.1.1 , evad3rs have updated their jailbreak tool, evasi0n, to support it. 6.1.1 was earlier released as a beta to developers and contained improvements to the Maps app for users in Japan. Today, Apple has released 6.1.1 for the public. However, this is only for iPhone 4S users and is to deal with issues surrounding cellular connection that arose following iOS 6.1. Our tutorial for jailbreaking can be found here – How to Jailbreak using Evasi0n.
Update : Download Evasi0n 1.4 with iOS 6.1.2 support.
The release notes for the updated evasi0n read :
Evasion Version 1.3
- Support for 6.1.1 on the iPhone 4S
This should only be used by those who have already updated to iOS 6.1.1 and can be downloaded here from the official website .
UPDATE – 09/03/2015
Evad3rs went on to produce a jailbreak tool for iOS 7, Evasi0n 7, which was released just before Christmas 2013. Not the most stable utility they ever produced, Evasi0n 7 contained a Chinese App store that was appearing on some devices beside Cydia. It emerged that Evad3rs had signed a deal with Taig, well-known for piracy, to include their app store with the jailbreak.
It soon emerged that there were, indeed, pirate apps in the store and the agreement was terminated. Following that, Evad3rs issued a number of updates to their tool to support iOS 7 up to iOS 7.1, after which they backed out of producing anymore because they wanted to work on iOS 8. A new team called Pangu took over to finish off iOS 7 and iOS 8 was released in September 2014.
Since that release, Evad3rs has disappeared off the radar. All iOS 8 jailbreaks to date have been produced by teams from China:
It is unlikely that Evad3rs will ever return to the jailbreak scene but, with the above teams, all our bases are pretty much covered. Although iOS 8.1.3 patched the jailbreaks, Taig has said that they are confident of a new jailbreak for iOS 8.2, which is due for release any day now.
