iOS 6.1.2, the reports say, has become the most popular iOS in just under a week. I don’t know but I’ve seen a ton of users report about battery issues after switching to iOS 6.1.2 so I wouldn’t know if it’s really a good news. Anyway, the good thing is the Evad3rs team updated their jailbreak too, Evasi0n, to 1.5, fixing some minor boot time issues along the way.
Evasi0n 1.5 can jailbreak your iDevice running iOS 6.1.2. It won’t work with Apple TV 3 but almost all older devices in the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch line-up can be jailbroken using Evasi0n. It’s the best thing since Absinthe came out.
The process of jailbreak is pretty much the same.
- An iOS device that can be jailbroken (iPhones, iPod Touch, iPads)
- Evasi0n 1.5 (Win | Mac | Linux)
- A PC/Mac
How to Untethered Jailbreak iOS 6.1.2 with Evasi0n 1.5:
Step 1: You connect your iPhone/iPad to your machine via USB.
Step 2: Open the downloaded Evasi0n tool. It should detect your iOS device automatically.
Step 3: Once detected, click ‘Jailbreak’
Step 4: The jailbreak process will take a bit of time. After a while, your iDevice will reboot.
Step 5: Following the instructions shown on the Evasi0n tool, look for the ‘jailbreak’ icon on your iDevice. Tap that.
Step 6: After a multiple-boot process, your iDevice will be jailbroken. You should see the Evasi0n logo coming up on the screen.
Evasi0n 1.5 fixes delayed boot that was observed in a lot of jailbreaks on iOS 6.1.1 or earlier. Apparently, it’s a minor issue in Evasi0n 1.4 but when it takes long for a reboot, you tend to get panicky. The v1.5 provides a fix so the reboot isn’t scarily slow.
