Easy Untethered Jailbreak for iOS6 by using evasiOn

by on February 14th, 2013


Evasi0n (available for Linux, MAC and Windows) can perform an untethered jailbreak for all iPhone, iPod touch, iPad and iPad mini models running iOS 6.0 through 6.1. The process is really simple and neat. You need to download this software, plugin your device into PC and start this software and wait. In the middle you need to tap an icon in your idevice and that’s it. Jailbreak will be done and Cydia will be installed in 2 to 5 minutes.




  • Backup your device (using iTunes, iCloud, iTools or iFunBox) before using evasi0n. Because if something breaks, you’ll always be able to recover your data.
  • Disable the lock passcode of your iOS device before using evasi0n. It can cause issues. During jailbreak device need to reboot several times without interruption. If you use passcode, then jailbreak process may break in the middle where device tries to automatically reboots.
  • If the process gets stuck somewhere, it’s safe to restart the program, reboot the device (if necessary by holding down Power and Home until it shuts down), and rerun the process.
