Evasi0n iOS 6.1.2 Jailbreak: Caution, You May Not Need This

By  | 

The Evasi0n jailbreak has been updated from 1.5.2 to 1.5.3. This update sorts out a bug that was crashing the jailbreak in Windows, as well as other fixes.

This update comes after the 1.5.2 update, which according to iDownloadBlog was a small update: “support has been added to include localizations for the native languages of the Evad3rs: French, German, and Chinese.”

If you’ve got an iPhone, an iPod Touch or an iPad with Evasi0n, you might want to avoid this particular update. If you haven’t jailbroken your device yet, then go for the latest version.
Here are the steps to use the Evasi0n jailbreak after you’ve downloaded it.

Step 1: Save Evasi0n in a folder on your desktop, then right click the .exe file and select “Run as administrator.” Click “Yes” if you see a User Access Control window. If you’re on a Mac, double click on the Evasi0n app to set it off.

Step 2: Connect your device to the computer with your USB cable.

Step 3: Evasi0n will recognise your device and confirm its current iOS version. Now click Jailbreak.

Step 4: After some automatic steps, you’ll see a screen prompting you to unlock your device. Once you’ve unlocked, a new Jailbreak app icon will appear on your home screen.

Step 5: Tap this icon just once – the screen will go black for a second or so and return to your home screen.

Step 6: You’ll now see a series of automated messages, and your device will reboot several times. Once this is done, you’ll see “Jailbreak complete! The device may restart a few times as it completes the process.”

Step 7: After the device reboots once more, it’s done. You’ll have gone to your lock screen and the jailbreak is complete. Go over to your second home screen and look for the Cydia icon.

Step 8: Once you have launched Cydia, give it a few minutes to initialise and then the device will re-spring. Open Cydia once more and select Hacker.

If the process stalls at any point, just restart the programme by rebooting (holding down your power and home button) and re-running the process.
