The iOS 6/6.1 untethered jailbreak has now become possible, a huge thanks & appreciation goes to the hard work from those involved in the recently formed Evad3rs jailbreak team. The announcement of the new Evasi0n jailbreak tool means that users now have an extremely efficient & easy way to jailbreak their iDevices. Evasi0n works much like the previous jailbreak tool. Click, wait & it’s done! :D

How-to jailbreak iOS 6.1 (instructions):


a. It is highly recommended to make a complete backup of your iDevice using either iTunes or iCloud before proceeding. Saifiction! will not be responsible if you cause any harm to your device.

Step 1: Download Evasi0n jailbreak tool for your running OS (Windows/Mac/Linux).

Step 2: Download iOS 6.1, and update your device to it using iTunes. Please do not use OTA to avoid issues with the jailbreak. Though Evasi0n supports all versions of iOS 6, it is highly preferred to update to the latest 6.1 version first & then jailbreak it. Therefore, you can enjoy all the new features & sweetness of iOS 6.1, with the added bonus of jailbreak.:D

Step 3: Confirm you don’t have any passcode set on your device. You can disable Passcode lock from: Settings –> General –> Passcode Lock –> Off

Step 4: Make sure both iTunes and Xcode (if installed) are not running.

Step 5: Start the Evasi0n jailbreak tool on your computer.


Step 6: Connect your iOS device to your PC or Mac via the 30-pin or Lightning cable (depending on the generation of the hardware). Make sure that the connected hardware is recognized by the jailbreak tool.

Step 7: Select the Jailbreak option and relax since the software performs the necessary steps in the background to inject and run through the jailbreaking process. It’ll take time. So be patient.

Step 8: Be patient, do not touch your device or anything on computer during the jailbreaking process. Have some tea & relax.

Step 9: Once done, you will have to unlock your iOS device, you will then see a “Jailbreak” app on the home screen. Tap on this icon. Then the screen will go black for a few seconds (it can take a minute too). After a short while, it will be back on the home screen.

Step 10: Rest of the process is automatic. Once the Evasi0n software on desktop says “Jailbreak complete!, after a short while, your device will reboot several times to complete the process. Once this is done, you will have Cydia on the home screen.

Happy Jailbreaking!
