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.
Final count down toward tomorrow’s release has begun!

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.
Yes, tomorrow is a concrete release date. It’s also the only release date we’ve ever given. :P

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.
