In the six weeks since evasi0n was released, however, close to 18 million devices have already been jailbroken, according to data from Jay Freeman, the administrator of the Cydia app store for jailbroken devices. He says he’s counted 18.2 million unique devices running iOS 6 visiting Cydia, including 13.8 million iPhones, 3.4 million iPads, and 1.1 million iPod Touches. Those numbers vastly exceed previous jailbreaks such as Jailbreakme 3, a popular hacking tool for iOS released in the summer of 2011 that was used on around 2 million devices, according to a count at the time by creator Nicholas Allegra.
The Evad3rs have released Evasi0n 1.5.3 - an updated version of utility for iOS 6.0 - iOS 6.1.2 untethered jailbreak. New version brings localization for French, German, and Chinese and fixes some bugs in Windows version.
It looks like the vulnerabilities used for the evasi0n untethered jailbreak will be fixed in an upcoming iOS 6.1.3 update. PlanetBeing, one of the founding members of the evad3rs team that reports that Apple has patched at least one of the five exploits that evasi0n uses to accomplish the jailbreak.
"If one of the vulnerabilities doesn’t work, evasi0n doesn’t work," he says. "We could replace that part with a different vulnerability, but [Apple] will probably fix most if not all of the bugs we’ve used when 6.1.3 comes out."
Our advice? Just enjoy the jailbreak, back up your SHSH blobs in case a downgrade solution becomes available. And obviously if you like your jailbreak, stay away from iOS 6.1.3 once it is released.
