The evad3rs, a team comprising of a number of high-profile iOS hackers, have today released their much-anticipated evasi0n untethered jailbreak for Apple devices running iOS 6.0 through 6.1 – including the iPhone 5 and iPad mini.

The evasi0n tool is available for OS X, Windows, and Linux, and allows the following devices to be jailbroken:

  • iPhone 5
  • iPhone 4S
  • iPhone 4
  • iPhone 3GS
  • iPad (fourth-generation)
  • iPad (third-generation)
  • iPad 2
  • iPad mini
  • iPod touch (fifth-generation)
  • iPod touch (fourth-generation)
  • Apple TV (second-generation)

In addition to affording greater control and customisation of iOS devices, jailbreaking also makes it possible to install apps that Apple doesn’t allow in its App Store. Although it voids your Apple warranty, in most cases a jailbreak can be completely removed without trace.

The first untethered jailbreak released for iOS 6, evasi0n only needs to be installed once on a compatible iPad, iPhone or iPod touch. By comparison, tethered jailbreaks require devices to be connected to a computer each time they reboot – making them less popular with users.

Will you be jailbreaking your iOS 6 device?
