4th February, team evad3rs released Untethered Jailbreak for iOS 6 called evasi0n. No doubt, evasi0n was the most successful jailbreak till the date. It took nearly six weeks for Apple to fix all four of the gaps that are necessary for the evasi0n-jailbreak, closed with iOS 6.1.3.
In these 43 days, more than 18 million iOS devices have been jailbroken with evasi0n.Including 13.8 million iPhones, 3.4 million iPads and 1.1 million iPod touches.
In the six weeks since evasi0n was released, however, close to 18 million devices have already been jailbroken, according to data from Jay Freeman, the administrator of the Cydia app store for jailbroken devices. He says he’s counted 18.2 million unique devices running iOS 6 visiting Cydia, including 13.8 million iPhones, 3.4 million iPads, and 1.1 million iPod Touches.
David Wang aka @ planetbeing, one of the co-developers of evasi0n, talked to the Forbes, said that Apple might at least have not yet closed all evasi0n gaps, we’ve also got more “unused gaps” in store for another jailbreak, Wang continued.
However, we’ll take a new Untethered Jailbreak probably only for the next big iOS major release in attack. And that could be in the worst case only with iOS 7 of the case. Says David Wang aka @ planetbeing.
