We all remember Monday 4th February – that was the day the untethered 6.1 jailbreak, named evasi0n, was finally released. After months of hard work, and a fair amount of despondency from the community, the small light at the end of the tunnel suddenly blinded us and jailbreaking suddenly became very much back to life. Since that date, more than 14 million devices have been jailbroken using Evasi0n with people rushing to do it before Apple released that important update – the one that would signal the end of Evasi0n Jailbreak .
iOS 6.1.1 and 6.1.2 have already been released to fix critical connectivity and security issues. Neither of these updates touched the jailbreak, bringing huge sighs of relief to the community as a whole. However, time is very nearly up; Apple has now released 6.1.3 in beta form to developers and, stringent testing by evad3rs team member planetbeing (David Wang) has shown that it will shut down evasi0n.
It probably won’t be too much longer before 6.1.3 is put on public release so, if you don’t want to lose your current jailbreak, or the ability to jailbreak with evasi0n in the future, do NOT upgrade your device to the new firmware.
