Good news for all the jailbreakers!

The iOS 6.x jailbreak is just round the corner with ‘evasi0n’ – the code name for the latest iOS jailbreak – due for a public release tomorrow (Sunday, the 03rd Feb, 2013).

The evad3rs launched their official website this week where they revealed the name of their first jailbreak as a team – ‘evasi0n‘ is what it’s called!

evad3rs is a team of hackers comprising musclenerd, pod2g, planetbeing and pimskeks and the first jailbreak from them is a big one – the most anticipated jailbreaks ever!

Apple has recently been making strong efforts to increase the security in it’s mobile operating system making it difficult to jailbreak. But, if Apple is smart, I would say we have a stong community of hackers around who have again found that one loophole needed to jailbreak the OS.

As mentioned on the iOS 6.x jailbreak website, evad3rs are 80% through with the jailbreak and the release for tomorrow (Sunday) is highly likely with extended beta testing in progress today.
