Evasi0n 1.3 Delivers iOS 6.1.1 Jailbreak to iPhone 4S

Today, Apple released iOS 6.1.1, an update solely for iPhone 4S owners and one that tackles 3G issues that some owners have been having since upgrading to iOS 6.1. Those iPhone 4S owners looking to use the Evasi0n jailbreak with the new update have no been cleared to do so as the jailbreak tool has been updated to deliver an iOS 6.1.1 jailbreak to iPhone 4S owners.

Earlier today, Apple issued its first update since releasing iOS 6.1 at the end of January. iOS 6.1.1 is an update that is only for owners of the iPhone 4S and addresses an issue that could “impact cellular performance and reliability.” For many, this is a necessary upgrade. Of course, updates often pose issues for jailbreaks and those who have jailbroken their iPhone. Fortunately, that’s not the case here with iOS 6.1.1.

Evasi0n is now available to iPhone 4S owners running iOS 6.1.1.

The evadr3s team behind the popular Evasi0n jailbreak has confirmed that it has updated the jailbreak tool to version 1.3 which supports iOS 6.1.1 for iPhone 4S owners. That means that those who wish to install iOS 6.1.1 and then use the Evasi0n jailbreak tool are now free to do so.

Even better, it appears that those who are already jailbroken, and wish to jailbreak, can do so as well. The development team says that  iPhone 4S users looking to install iOS 6.1.1 should backup and then install through iTunes rather than installing the firmware through an OTA update. After, they can then use the evasi0n 1.3 jailbreak tool.

This is big for those that may have been experiencing issues and need to download the new iOS 6.1.1 update as it means that they can update and jailbreak when needed. Of course, those that need to unjailbreak will likely need to set aside more than a few minutes for the process as it can be a bit lengthy.

Those iPhone 5 owners and others on iOS 6.1 are likely hoping that the jailbreak process for their next update plays out just as smoothly as it has for iPhone 4S owners. And as of right now, there is no sign that it won’t.

iPhone, iPad and iPod touch owners who are already jaibroken will receive the update to the new version of Evasi0n through Cydia, per usual.

    Question: I’ve recently pursched a new iPhone 4S from ebay, sadly to my dismay the phone is password protected & has a clean “esn” according to Verizon. The iPhone 4S is password protected, and the password is unkown rendering it useless to me (I’ve tried DFU on my itunes account yet the owner “Eddie’s A Ipod” cannot be rebooted), is there any jailbreaking software or other party software that will allow me to restart the phone? I apologize for this assinine question
