Evasi0n iOS 6.1 Jailbreak Release Set for Monday

The evasi0n iOS 6.1 jailbreak release is set for Monday according to a tweet from the evad3rs team Sunday evening.

The news come after a week of waiting for the iOS 6.1 jailbreak to appear. The evad3rs were waiting for Apple to release iOS 6.1 before the team released the jailbreak, and in under a week the team was able to finish the jailbreak.

Originally rumored for today, the evasi0n iOS 6.1 jailbreak release is scheduled for sometime on Monday.

The evasi0n website shows the iOS 6.1 jailbreak is 91% complete and that the release is the next step, telling users to come back soon for the release. Earlier today team member pimskeks shared that testing on the Linux jailbreak app was complete.

The iOS 6.1 jailbreak works on the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch running iOS 6, iOS 6.0.1, iOS 6.0.2 and iOS 6.1. The tool will allow users to jailbreak any mobile Apple iOS device running iOS 6 or higher. This release will mark the first iPhone 5 jailbreak and the first iPad 4 jailbreak. The evasi0n jailbreak tool will work on Mac, Windows and Linux.


This is an untethered iOS 6.1 jailbreak which means users can install it on a phone they use every day without worrying that a dead battery or restart will send them scrambling for a computer.

It is legal to for users to perform the iOS 6.1 jailbreak on their iPhone, though the DMCA extension for tablets has expired. Gotta Be Mobile reached out to the EFF for a comment on what this means for users, but have yet to hear back.

There is no official launch time for the evasi0n iOS 6.1 jailbreak release date, but it will likely come after 9 AM eastern based on Gotta Be Mobile’s best estimate.

Users should not pay attention to fake iOS 6.1 jailbreak sites like evad3rs net, who claim to possess an evasi0n iOS 6.1 jailbreak release schedule, but are not affiliated with the evad3rs. Be wary of any jailbreak site asking for money, other than a donation to the evad3rs.

  1. Well I have been salivating at the mouth refreshing the website all day. Guess I’ll have to WAIT! Keep up the good work guys

  2. Evad3rs have done an amazing job with iOS 6, you gotta give them a hand. Anyways, can’t wait, but I don’t care how long it’s delayed!

  3. It’s coming tomorrow at 12 PM for the East coast. Change the time on your computers, then you’ll see what im talking about. The percentage countdown is timed by your clock.

    • thats exactly right
      idk if its real tho if it does that to u
      so it checks ur computer time…
      that is just weird

    • You have no idea what you are talking about.. They are still doin with the finishing touches, so no matter what hour you fast forward your clock to it won’t make the slightest difference. Just wait till they announce it from the site.

      • How come the percent bar is effected by the time change then if the bar is connected to there server then it should only be able to advance foward. I’m hopping your right but it just dosent make tons of sence to me it seems like the bar is connected to a timer and is set to end on a certain time where either the jail break will or won’t be realsed

  4. This is compete bs, we have waited long enough. These ‘hackers’ sit in their parents basement and promote themselves for months and months and months before release. They do it for the nerd ego stroking and then they have the nerve to not even have it ready on the day expected? They should have some of the fat sliced off their pork chop back. I would spit in their face if I could

  5. Yo, to all you complaining whiners, be patient. I too have been glued waiting for the release. It’s free, and they waited for the last update release from Apple to give it the final touches…. What more do you want, we all know its free btw? I give props to the team thats been living off dose after dose of energy drinks making sure we get an awesome jailbreak release..

  6. I’m definitely gonna donate, they spend way to much time for people to complain and cry and they get it for free (and then those same people are too cheap to donate ANY type of money)

  7. It’s really sad that these hackers sit here months, weeks, days, hours, minutes, and seconds working on something that iPhone lovers, LOVE and this is what you give them? If its fake? Oh well it’s not the end of the world. I have been waiting all day, and as much patience that was wasted today, you have to take into consideration that this is going to be a free jailbreak. Give it time.

  8. It will be released when its ready to be released, just be patient. They know what they are doing…and final checks is a MUST. You wouldn’t want anything to mess up would you.

    Have a great day :0)
