It wasn’t a “Funday” last Sunday amidst the Superbowl weekend hype for the public release of the jailbreak as expected.
Nonetheless, the most awaited news in the jailbreak community has arrived. Evasi0n team rolled out the iOS 6.x untethered jailbreak with their name trending as top 2 in the 10 spots of Twitter US in just 20 minutes after the announcement. Team Evasi0n release this for iOS 6.0 – iOS 6.1 firmware.
Are you ready? (Cos I am ready!)
It was kind of late here in my time zone, when I got the buzz via Twitter that iOS 6 untethered jailbreak was released on the other side of the world. But I got pumped up, so I tinker my Mac and installed the new jailbreak anyway.
Keep on reading and make sure you follow all the necessary measures before jailbreaking your device.
Here are the compatible devices:
- iPhone 3GS
- iPhone 4
- iPad 2
- iPod touch 4th generation
- iPhone 4S
- iPad 3
- iPod touch 5th generation
- iPhone 5
- iPad mini
- iPad 4
- Apple TV 2
It will only take five minutes to jailbreak your device. But of course, inclusive of the backup procedure, allot more time with the syncing and transfer purchases just to make sure.
You can download direct links from Evasi0n?s website for Windows, Linux and Mac. There are additional links from Mega, Rapidshare and Box just to make you have a copy.
Remember, jailbreaking your device is at your own risk. Once you launch the exploit, you will be responsible for data loss. Make sure you follow these steps:
Step 1: Back up your device.
Step 2: Disable the lock password on your device to avoid any issues during installation. Take note also the backup password on iTunes. Make sure you uncheck it.
If you can’t remember the Encrypted backup password in your iTunes, you need to restore your iPod to its original state. So it’ll take you longer than you expected.
Step 3: Download the iOS 6 untethered jailbreak software from Evasi0n website.
Step 4: Connect your iOS device and launch the software. Wait for a few minutes and have a break, a hot cup of coffee will do while waiting. Click the jailbreak icon on your home screen once you are prompted and let evasi0n install the rest of the jailbreak.
Kudos to team Evasi0n! And now everyone?s happy.
