How to Jailbreak iPhone 5 & iOS 6.1 Devices with Evasi0n

The Evasi0n jailbreak utility has been released to provide and untethered jailbreak to all iOS 6 and iOS 6.1 devices. This is also the first jailbreak to be available for iPhone 5, making it a particularly exciting release for those who have been waiting for an iPhone 5 Screen Shot 2013-02-05 at 8.40.01 AMjailbreak.

Jailbreaking with the Evasion tool is surprisingly easy, but if you’re new to jailbroken devices and want to see how it goes we will walk through the process from start to finish. Additionally, we’ll cover a few common problems and troubleshooting solutions for some of the more frequently encountered issues.

Before beginning, you will need the following:

  • A compatible device, including: iPhone 5, iPhone 4S, iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPod touch 4th or 5th gen, iPad 4, iPad 3, iPad 2, or iPad Mini
  • A device running either iOS 6 or iOS 6.1
  • Download the Evasi0n jailbreak and unzip on your computer
  • A USB cable to perform the initial jailbreak – this is the only time you will need to tether the device

Most importantly, please take the time to back up the iOS device before beginning. This only takes a moment, and it allows you to restore from the backup in case something goes wrong, or if you want to undo the jailbreak without losing any of your personal data. To err on the completely safe side, you may want to manually back up to the computer with iTunes in addition to a remote backup with iCloud, guaranteeing a reliable backup is stored.

Once backed up, you are ready to start the jailbreak.

Jailbreak iOS 6.1 with Evasi0n

The jailbreak process is identical in Mac OS X and Windows:

  • Back up the iOS device (you did this, right?)
  • Temporarily turn off the iOS lock screen passcode by going to Settings > General > Passcode Lock and turn OFF
  • Launch Evasi0n and connect the device to the computer via USB
  • After Evasi0n recognizes the device, click “Jailbreak” and let Evasi0n do it’s thing
  • Watch the progress indicator, towards the very end is the only time you will need to do anything

Most of the jailbreak is hands-off, but you will need to tap the “Evasion” icon on your iOS device at one point to complete the jailbreak.

The rest of it is smooth sailing with little user input, making it one of the easiest jailbreaks ever released. Once everything is finished, the device will reboot and show an Evasi0n logo. Once back on the Home Screen, flip through until you see the familiar Cydia icon, signifying the successful jailbreak.

Launch Cydia, and away you go. There are tons of free tweaks, apps, and tools available to jailbroken devices so poke around and have fun.

For newbies, when you first launch Cydia you will be asked what kind of user you are, user, hacker, or developer. Most will be better off choosing “User”, but if you pick either other choice and run apps like OpenSSH, be sure you take the extra steps of changing the default root password on the iPhone or iOS device, or else the device could be connected to remotely with SSH by anyone who uses the default passwords. This is not something that non-jailbroken users have to worry about, and not something anyone who doesnt run SSH servers has to be concerned with either.

Troubleshooting Evasi0n Jailbreak Problems

Everything has a white icon! Help! – Fixing white icons for apps like Calculator and whatever else can be done by tapping on Cydia and letting it load. Quit out of Cydia and the icons should be normal again.

Cydia is blank, there is nothing is in Cydia! – The Cydia package servers are overloaded, relax and try again later.

I’m trying to install XYZ package and seeing weird “Host Unreachable” and 404 errors – The package servers are too busy to handle the request, this will resolve itself on it’s own over time. Take a break and try installing the package later.

Cydia is showing “NetDB: Open node name nor servname provided” errors – This can be caused by two things, either a buggy network connection or because the Cydia servers are overloaded. Try resetting your Network Settings, if that doesn’t resolve the issue, it’s safe to assume that Cydia is just busy.

Evasi0n Jailbreak for iOS 6.1 Released [Download Links]

The first iOS 6.1 untethered jailbreak has been released by a group known as The Evad3rs. The tool is called “Evasi0n” and runs on Mac OS X, Windows, and Linux, allowing for any device running iOS 6.1 to be quickly jailbroken by following a few simple steps.

evasi0n-jailbreak

evasi0n-jailbreak

Those interested in Evasi0n will find the jailbreak compatible with iOS 6.1 running on iPhone 5, iPhone 4S, iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPod touch 4th & 5th gen, and apparently even works for iPad 3, iPad 4, and iPad Mini. iOS 6 is also supported on some devices.

Remember to backup to iTunes or to iCloud before proceeding.

Download Evasi0n Jailbreak for iOS 6.1

Download links are courtesy of Evasion, more mirrors are available there if necessary:

Users will need a USB cable to connect the device to a computer and run through the initial jailbreaking process, despite Evasi0n being an untethered jailbreak. Once the jailbreak is complete, the untether means the iOS device can be rebooted freely away from a computer, without the need for boot assistance or ‘tethering’ to a PC running the original jailbreak app. That is what makes an untethered device more popular than a tethered release.

For those less familiar, jailbreaking unlocks Apple’s restrictions on iOS devices and allows for third party software to be installed on them without going just through Apple’s App Store. Once a device is jailbroken, a third party app market known as Cydia becomes available, where unique customizations can be found for things like lock screens, apps, and the addition of other features that are otherwise not possible. Jailbreaking is legal for iPhone devices, but there remains some unusual grey area technicalities for tablets like the iPad, and Apple does not approve of or sanction jailbreaking, which can lead to some difficulties trying to get such a device serviced. Whether or not running a jailbreak tool is worthwhile is entirely up to you, but they can be undone rather easily.

iOS 6 Unlock Status

Unlock iOS 6 with Ultrasn0w

Coming to ultrasn0w, the latest version 1.2.7 managed to provide an unlock solution for iPhone 4 and 3GS users, but only for older basebands. These are the compatible basebands:

iOS 6 unlock

iOS 6 unlock

  • iPhone 4 baseband 01.59.00
  • iPhone 3GS basebands 04.26.08, 05.11.07, 05.12.01, 05.13.04 and 06.15.00.

If iOS 6 updates the basebands, than you can say adios to the unlock.

Unlock iOS 6 with Gevey SIM

Talking about Gevey SIM, the users need a jailbroken iDevice to use it properly. So they shouldn’t update. ApplenBerry has released no official statement that when iOS 6 will be supported. Hopefully this would happen when iOS 6 is released publically.

iOS 6 Jailbreak Already Available with Redsn0w 0.9.13dev – Download Redsn0w 0.9.13dev

The first beta of iOS 6 has only been in the wild a few days but has already been jailbroken. The DevTeam released a dev build of Redsn0w 0.9.13 to handle the jailbreak which works on iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, and iPod touch 4G, though each device is tethered for the time being and there are a handful of major issues with the jailbreak that should prevent most users from attempting to use it on their devices.

As the versioning implies, Redsn0w 0.9.13dev1 is intended for developers only. There are many components that do not work, including Apple’s default apps, many 3rd party apps, Cydia apps, and more. Furthermore, this version of the tethered jailbreak does not install Cydia. Because of all the caveats this is really a proof of concept and should not be widely adopted beyond those developing jailbreak tweaks or apps, but it does suggest that when iOS 6 is released to the public a jailbreak will accompany it rather quickly.

Download Redsn0w 0.9.13dev

For the brave devs that wish to try this, these are direct links:

iOS 6 Jailbreak Already Available with Redsn0w 0.9.13dev

If you’re a developer and you wish to try this out, point Redsn0w at the iOS 6 IPSW file to jailbreak, and then boot tethered. As the Dev Team mentions, anyone attempting to use this version of redsn0w will need a registered UDID to activate their device.

How to Jailbreak iPhone 4S & iPad 2 on iOS 5.0.1 with Absinthe

The newly released and highly anticipated Absinthe A5 jailbreak is the first public jailbreak for iPhone 4S users and the first jailbreak for iPad 2 with iOS 5. If you’ve been waiting for an untethered jailbreak for either device with iOS 5, this is it, and it’s very easy to use. Absinthe is compatible with iPhone 4S or iPad 2 running the following iOS builds:

  • iPhone 4S iOS 5.0 – build 9A334, iOS 5.0.1 builds 9A405 or 9A406
  • iPad 2: iOS 5.0.1 – build 9A405

Backup your iOS device before proceeding, you can do this manually with iTunes.

Jailbreak iPhone 4S or iPad 2 on iOS 5 using Absinthe

  • Download Absinthe A5 tool – (Mac OS X) (Windows)
  • Connect the iPhone 4S or iPad 2 to the computer
  • Launch Absinthe and click on “Jailbreak” and let the device sit and run the jailbreak, this may take a while
  • When the jailbreak is finished, you’ll see an Absinthe icon on the home screen, tap on that to load the Greenpois0n site and download Cydia

The device is now jailbroken. This is a fully untethered jailbreak, meaning you can reboot at will without the need for boot assistance from an application or computer.

Troubleshooting: If you see an “Error establishing a database connection” error during the process, just wait it out and try again, or start a VPN tunnel through Settings > Network > VPN > ON (via @pod2g). The Absinthe Greenpois0n servers are swamped by the initial demand but things should even out shortly.
