As with all 1.0 jailbreak releases there are always initial bugs, which happens to be the case with the new evasi0n tool. Earlier we covered a few of the issues which involved the “patching kernel” freeze, Cydia downtime and the weather app crashing on launch. Another issue that has become quite common is the time zone and incorrect time error immediately after jailbreaking.
How to fix this? Easy. Users have told us to toggling the “Set Automatically” option to ON/OFF should fix the time. If that doesn’t work, just keep ‘Set Automatically’ to OFF to fix your time issue.
Earlier this evening we revealed how the evasi0n untethered jailbreak was achieved, which involved a vulnerability to do with the time zone in iOS. Let us know if this fix works for you.
Update: According to commenter G, here are steps to fix this issue:
1. Go to Settings > General > Date and Time > Set Automatically > ON
2. Go back to Settings > Privacy > Location Services (make sure it’s on) > scroll to the bottom, System Services > Setting Time Zone > ON
