More than 800,000 evasi0n iOS6 jailbreak downloaded in 6 hours

According to Cydia’s appstore administrator, the iPhone 5 and iPad mini jailbreak tool – evasi0n – has been used at least 800,000 times after 6 hours of launch.

Released one week after Apple unleashed the final version of iOS 6.1 to the public, it seems a lot of users want to interfere into Apple’s system to install and customize software on iPhone and iPad.


Jay Freeman, Cydia’s administrator, said one day after evasi0n launched, there were 1.7 million Cydia downloads, equivalent to 14,000 downloads every minute.

The evasi0n tool allow users to install apps that are not licensed by Apple on the iPhone 5/4S/4/3GS, iPadmini, iPad 4/3/2, iPod Touch (generations 4 and 5). It takes 5 minutes to completely jailbreak your device. The evasi0n tool is compatible with all iPhone, iPod touch, iPad and iPad mini models running iOS 6.0 through 6.1
