coolstar

UPDATE: SemiRestore has now been released, check out our SemiRestore tutorial!

A new tool has been announced Semi-Restore which should come as a huge relief to many jailbreakers. We've all been there, we jailbreak our devices, load them up with all the best jailbreak tweaks and apps only to be stuck with a sluggish iOS. The answer to this problem is to restore and only install the absolute necessities, but what do you do when the current iOS is not jailbreakable and your device cannot be restored without installing an unjailbreakable firmware?

Enter Semi-Restore, a tool which bills …

jailbreak

Yesterday, Apple released iOS 6.1.2 which patched an Exchange calendar bug which was causing battery drain and increased network activity. The good news is that the Evasi0n untether exploit remains unpatched. In order to jailbreak iOS 6.1.2, the Evad3rs have released Evasi0n 1.4 to jailbreak devices on the new 6.1.2 firmware.

Evasi0n 1.3 released to jailbreak iOS 6.1.1

jailbreak

A few minutes ago, we informed you that iOS 6.1.1 has been released for the iPhone4S only. This update was released to solve issues certain users were having with 3G connectivity. The Evad3rs have now released Evasi0n 1.3 which has been updated to support the iOS 6.1.1 firmware. This update will also work for those who are running iOS 6.1.1 tethered jailbreaks on devices other than the 4S. If you are on a tethered jailbreak of a beta 6.1.1 firmware, simply install the updated Evasi0n 6.0-6.1 untether package in Cydia to untether the jailbreak.

Remember that if you plan on …

evasi0n

Today, Apple pushed out the iOS 6.1.1 update for the iPhone4S only. This update is supposed to fix issues with 3G for certain users. It has been confirmed that the Evasi0n untether exploit still exists in the 6.1.1 firmware for the 4S, but it is unclear whether the final release of 6.1.1 for other devices will be the same case.

PlanetBeing announced that a new version of Evasi0n will be released shortly that can detect 6.1.1 devices so that 4S users can update and jailbreak. Stay tuned to find out if the rest of the devices will be susceptible!…

Jailbreak Apple TV 2G on iOS 6.x Now with Sn0wbreeze 2.9.8

Apple TV featured image

 

For all of those hardcore Apple TV fans (including myself!) will be pleased to hear, Sn0wbreeze, the Windows based jailbreak tool has also been updated to include an untethered jailbreak for the Apple TV 2G.

Most of the software like XBMC, aTV Flash (black), Plex, etc. is not yet compatible with Apple TV 5.1 – 5.2 and the device constantly crashes when attempting to install additional software from nitoTV, so things are not ideal at this stage! Hopefully the programs developers will soon provide and update for their software to provide compatibility for the lastest software.

Evasi0n 1-click jailbreak is great, but how does it work!?

jailbreak

I first entered the jailbreak world back in 2010 when I purchased an iPhone3Gs with 3.1.2. At that time, jailbreaking had already been simplified quite a bit and was easy as cake compared to a 74-step jailbreak that came about in the early years of iOS. Nowadays, jailbreakers are spoiled with easy-to-use single click jailbreaks, where all of the difficult commands and exploits are neatly compiled into scripts that run in the background.

Because of this, it is easy to forget just how much work actually goes into these jailbreaks. Peter Morgan, Ryan Smith, Braden Thomas, and Josh Thomas from …

How many names can you spot!?

No evasi0n jailbreak release tonight, confirmed release date tomorrow February 4th

evad3rs

We have been patiently waiting all week for the release of the new iOS6 Evasi0n jailbreak, but it looks like we are going to have to wait one more day. It all started with a vague tweet from MuscleNerd who asked what the evad3rs team was planning for Super Bowl sunday. Rumors continued when someone noticed that all of the devices on the Evasi0n website had "3" on the calendar app, leading people to believe that today, February 3rd, would be the release date.

Unfortunately, just moments ago, PlanetBeing tweeted that the jailbreak will definitely not be released today, but …

evasi0n

As you can see from the screenshot below, the Evasi0n jailbreak temporarily was showing 100% complete with download links for Linux, OSX and Windows seemingly available. However, the website was quickly reverted to it's previous state of 85% and it doesn't seem like any files actually made their way out of the website yet. Did someone jump the gun or are they about to release the jailbreak? Stay tuned!

Time to save your iOS 6.1 SHSH

tu

It is very likely that we will be seeing the evasi0n iOS 6.1 jailbreak within the next 24 hours, because of that, we thought it would be important to remind you that, if you have not already done so, you should save the iOS 6.1 SHSH keys for all of your devices using TinyUmbrella 6.10.02a. Apple will certainly have a team on hand to reverse-engineer the evasi0n jailbreak so that they can quickly patch the exploits and release an updated iOS6 to block the jailbreak. This usually happens within a week or 2 of the release of the jailbreak so …

Evasi0n iOS6 jailbreak has entered the beta testing phase

evad3rs

With no definitive release date for the Evasi0n iOS6 jailbreak, I'm sure some of you, like me, have been refreshing the Evasi0n website for the past few days to watch the progress bar grow. Sometime this morning the bar reached 75% and entered the private beta stage that we discussed in our Evasi0n jailbreak announcement a few days ago. Yesterday, the site informed us that the tool had been completed for OSX and Windows, it appears as though the Linux version is still being worked on currently.

It is definitely looking more and more likely that we will be …
