Evasi0n iOS 6.1 Jailbreak Hits 94%, Release Coming Tomorrow [Update]


Looks like Sunday isn’t going to be ‘fun day’, but that’s not going to be a problem for many. The @evad3rs jailbreak team just tweeted they have entered its “final testing and preparation” phase and said the release will be coming tomorrow.

The website now shows 90% completion with the next step being “release!”:

There’s no timeframe on the exact availability of the launch, but we’re guessing it will come in the wee hours of Monday night, probably after midnight Pacific Standard Time. To prepare for the jailbreak, you should restore to iOS 6.1 via iTunes and remember to turn off your passcode lock prior to attempting the jailbreak, according to the website. Stay tuned!

Update: Looks like it’s now at 91%:

    They never said it would be today. People just assumed it would be today because previous releases were on a Sunday.
