If you’ve been waiting for someone to jailbreak iOS 6.1, your wait is almost over. A group of hackers are now working on their own iOS 6.x jailbreak, dubbed “evasi0n”, and could arrive in the next few days. The hacking group, made up of hackers known by the handles pod2g, pimskeks, planetbeing, and musclenerd, have posted a progress bar on the official evasi0n website (http://evasi0n.com/) and promises simple requirements to be able to partake on the sweet, iOS 6.x jailbreak action:
- 5 minutes of your time!
- A computer, running Windows (XP minimum), Mac OS X (10.5 minimum) or Linux (x86 / x86_64)
- An iPhone, iPad or iPod running iOS 6.0 through 6.1 (you may check in Settings / General / About => Version)
- A USB cable to connect the device to the computer
If you visit the site now, you’ll see that the group is almost done judging from the progress bar. You can keep checking back on their site if you want to be the first one to try out the new jailbreak, but always remember to backup your files before doing anything drastic once the jailbreak hits.
