Evasi0n iOS 6 Jailbreak Announced
The developer team behind the upcoming iOS 6 jailbreak have unleashed a website for their software, revealing the name of the yet unreleased jailbreak tool to be evasi0n.
After much anticipation, the team behind the iOS 6 jailbreak tool, called Evad3rs, released many of the details associated with their upcoming jailbreak for iOS 6 devices. One of those details is the jailbreak tools name. The release name will be evasi0n and while a release date is not yet know, many of the details now are.
The Evad3rs team is currently in the process finishing the GUI and according to its website, which monitors progress of the update, the next step will be a private beta. The status bar shows the status at around 60% or so which means that if everything goes according to plan, we might finally see a release of the iOS 6.1 jailbreak.
The team has outlined many of the requirements that will be attached to the tool once its released. First and foremost, the jailbreak will be compatible “with all iPhone, iPod touch, iPad and iPad mini models running iOS 6.0 through 6.1.” Yes, this means the first iPhone 5 jailbreak tool is on the way after more than three months of waiting.
It appears that the jailbreak tool will only take five minutes to install and get running on a device and that it will indeed be available to those running OS X, Windows and Linux. Windows XP will be the minimum for Windows users, Mac users will need at least OS X 10.5 and Linux users will need to be running or x86 / x86_64 or higher.
They also make it clear that a USB cable will be needed for the process as well.

So far, we aren’t exactly sure when the untethered jailbreak for iOS 6 will be released though it could be that the evasi0n tool is released this Super Bowl Sunday. The team has teased that weekend in particular but thus far, it has not confirmed that weekend to be the official release date of their highly anticipated tool.
The upcoming jailbreak tool is an untethered iOS 6.1 jailbreak, compatible with iOS 6, iOS 6.0.1 and iOS 6.0.2. The tool will allow users to jailbreak the iPhone 5, iPad 4 and iPod touch 5th generation as well as older Apple devices running iOS 6 or higher.
