The wait is over now for all those who have been looking to jailbreak their iOS devices. Special thanks to the team of Evaders who have released new tool named “Evasi0n” which enables to jailbreak iOS of different devices. The iOS 6 was launched with iPhone 5 last year in the month of September. The wait was long but is really fruitful because we have now another tool available for the untethered Jailbreak of following versions.

We must thank those who have really worked hard for months and at last given us the Jailbreak version for iOS devices. Team Evad3rs was established earlier this year, which included some of the old experienced developers like: Nikias Bassen, Planetbeing, France-based Pod2g and USA-based MuscleNerd. These all are the well known developers who have done wonders in the field of Jailbreak in the past. This team was assembled as a result of failures and in order to develop a reliable untethered jailbreak for iOS 6 latest devices, especially iPhone 5, iPad Mini and 3rd generation iPad. As a result of all these new brains and their hard work a new tool known as Evasi0n came up for the untethered jailbreak.
The best thing about this tool is that it is user friendly, here we should also remind the users not to update their devices over the air: means download latest iOS 6.1 firmware and update to it via iTunes or the standalone ISPW – if you want to take full advantage of all new features of iOS 6.1 with added benefits of jailbreak.
The team has succeeded in making a tool that can effectively jailbreak various iOS devices including iPhone 5, iPhone 4S, iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPad 4, iPad 3, iPad 2, iPad Mini, iPod touch 4, iPod Touch 5.
Now coming to the use of this tool, you can check the picture below, here we have the main window of the software. You simply need to connect your device and just follow instructions. Our recommendation is to update your device to latest iOS 6.1 before using this tool (but not using OTA). Once you have completed up gradation to iOS 6.1, jailbreak and enjoy full features of latest iOS being untethered jailbreak. [Read: Install iOS 6 by Preserving Baseband on iPhone, iPod]
