Just yesterday the Evad3rs jailbreak team updated their evasi0n.com website to show the tool was at 75% per cent completion, and as of today it is now at 80% per cent, noting “private beta testing has started for OS X, Windows and Linux.” The next step as explained will be extended beta testing.
The following devices will be able to be jailbroken using evasi0n:
- iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5
- iPad 2, iPad 3, iPad 4, iPad Mini
- iPod touch 4G, iPod touch 5G
- Apple TV 2
How to prepare for the iOS 6.1 jailbreak? Back up your device to iCloud or iTunes, then update to iOS 6.1 within iTunes via a complete restore (instead of over-the-air) as recommended by the Evad3rs. If you’re currently jailbroken, consider backing up your tweaks via OpenBackup first before updating.
Many believe the iOS 6.1 untethered jailbreak will be released tomorrow as previously hinted by @MuscleNerd. Stay tuned!
