Evasi0n iOS 6.1.2 Jailbreak: An Update Not For All

By  | 

The iOS 6 untethered jailbreak has received an update to 1.5.3. This update happens to fix an issue that caused the jailbreaking process to crash in Windows.

The update to 1.5.3 came after the update to 1.5.2, which had been just a minor update for languages. iDownloadBlog said that the 1.5.2 update came with “support has been added to include localizations for the native languages of the Evad3rs: French, German, and Chinese.”

If your device has already been jailbroken then you can avoid the update. On the other hand if you wish to jailbreak your device you should get hold of the latest version.

If you want to jailbreak your devices after downloading Evasi0n follow the steps below:

Step 1: After downloading the latest version of evasi0n, save it in a folder on the desktop. Then right click on the .exe file and select “Run as administrator.” Click on “Yes” if a User Access Control window appears.

Mac users should double click on the evasi0n app to run it.

Step 2: Use the USB cable to connect the device to the computer.

Step 3: evasi0n will detect the device and confirm the iOS version it’s currently running on. Now click on the Jailbreak button.

Step 4: After a few automatic steps, a screen will pop up prompting you to unlock the device. Once you unlock the device, a new app icon named “Jailbreak” will appear on the Home screen.

Step 5: Tap on the “Jailbreak” icon only once. The screen will now go black for a moment and return to the Home screen instantly.

Step 6: After that a number of automated messages will follow, during which the device will reboot multiple times. Once it’s done, another message will appear saying, “Jailbreak complete! The device may restart a few times as it completes the process”.

Step 7: After the device reboots again, you are done. You will be on your Lock screen. The jailbreak process is now complete. Swipe over to the second Home screen to find the Cydia icon.

Step 8: Once you launch Cydia, give it a couple of minutes to initialize. Once the initialization is complete, the device will re-spring again. Open Cydia again, select Hacker.

In the event that the process happens to get stuck somewhere you may restart the program, reboot the device, hold down Power and the Home button, and the start again.
