evasi0n

evad3rs Dev team has just released evasi0n 1.4 to jailbreak iOS 6.1.2 that was released few hours back.

In this tutorial, we will take you through the step by step procedure to jailbreak your iOS device running iOS 6.1.2 with evasi0n.

Here are some important points to note before you proceed.

  • evasi0n 1.4 can jailbreak the following iOS devices:
    • iPhone 5, iPhone 4S, iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS
    • iPad 4, iPad mini, iPad 3, iPad 2
    • iPod touch 5G, iPod touch 4G
  • evasion performs an untethered jailbreak.
  • evasion supports iOS 6, iOS 6.0.1, iOS 6.0.2, iOS 6.1, iOS 6.1.1 and iOS 6.1.2.
  • Please do not forget to backup your iPhone to iCloud or iTunes before you proceed. Please also take a manual backup of your iOS device using iTunes.
  • Please ensure you’ve updated iTunes to the latest version.
  • Warning: If you depend on Ultrasn0w to unlock your iPhone, then do not update to iOS 6.1.2. You should wait for the dev teams to release Redsn0w or PwnageTool that adds support for iOS 6.x untethered jailbreak, which will allow you to create a custom iOS firmware file, which will allow you to update to iOS 6.1.2 while preserving the baseband
  • Please note that jailbreaking your iPhone may void your warranty and hence proceed with caution and at your own risk
  • Please do not jailbreak your iPhone to pirate apps from the App Store

Step 1: Download the latest version of evasion jailreak from this link and save it in a folder named “evasi0n” on your desktop.

Step 2: Double click the evasi0n zip file and extract the application to the evasi0n folder (Windows users). Navigate to the evasion application and launch it.

Windows users: Please launch the application as an Administrator. Right Click on the evasion exe and select the “Run as Administrator” option.

Step 3: After launching evasi0n, you will be prompted to connect your iOS device.

Step 4: Please disable the passcode as the jailbreak may fail, if the passcode is enabled (Settings -> General -> Passcode Lock On -> Turn Passcode Off).

Step 5: After the passcode is disabled, connect your iOS device to the computer. evasi0n should detect your iOS device and also confirm that iOS 6.1.2 is running on it. Click on the Jailbreak button.

After clicking on the Jailbreak button the tool will give a progress update on the various stages of the jailbreak process such as:

  • Retrieving information from the device to general jailbreak data
  • Preparing stage 1 jailbreak data
  • Injecting stage 1 jailbreak data
  • Waiting for device reboot… (do not touch your device)
  • Waiting for device to be ready… (do not touch your device)
  • Preparing stage 2 jailbreak data… (do not touch your device)
  • Injecting stage 2 jailbreak data (Step 1/3)… (do not touch your device)
  • Injecting stage 2 jailbreak data (Step 2/3)… (do not touch your device)
  • Injecting stage 2 jailbreak data (Step 3/3)… (do not touch your device)
  • Uploading Cydia… (do not touch your device)
  • Uploading Cydia packages list… (do not touch your device)

Please wait patiently while the jailbreaking process is running, don’t start iTunes or Xcode in the meanwhile. The process may take 5 minutes.

Step 6: Once the process is complete, you will get a message informing you to unlock your iPhone. Do not close the evasi0n application.

Step 7: Unlock your iOS device and then tap on the Jailbreak app (the one with the evasi0n icon).

Step 8: When you launch the evasi0n app, the screen will go black for a second and exit. Don’t worry, this will start the next stage of the jailbreak process.

Step 9: The tool will again give you progress update on the next stage of the jailbreak process such as:

  • Alright! Remounting will start now. DO NOT tap the icon again — just wait.
  • Injecting remount payload…
  • Root filesystem successfully remounted!
  • Preparing final jailbreak data…
  • Injecting final jailbreak data…

Step 10: Once it is done, it will give a message informing you that the “Jailbreak complete! The device may restart a few times as it completes the process”.

Step 11: The rest of the jailbreak process will now take place on your iOS device. After you iPhone reboots, you will see a large evasi0n logo with messages informing you on the status of the jailbreak process such as:

  • Setting up fstab and AFC2
  • Setting up Cydia
  • Setting up Cydia packages
  • Clearing SpringBoard Cache
  • Rebooting

Note: These messages will flash on the screen so quickly that you may not see them.

Your iPhone will reboot and you will again see the large evasion logo on your iOS device with messages informing you on the status of the jailbreak process such as:

  • Initializing offsets…
  • Finding offsets…
  • Patching kernel…
  • Cleaning up!
  • Done! Continuing boot

Note: The Patching kernel and Initializing offsets steps can take a long time. Some readers have reported it taking as much as 18 minutes, so please be patient.

Step 12: Your iOS device will reboot for the final time. After it has rebooted, you’re done. It has been successfully jailbroken and you should be able to find the Cydia icon on your iPhone’s home screen (it may not be on the first page so search for it to locate it).

Please note if the process gets stuck in the middle, it’s safe to restart the process, hardware reset your iOS device (if necessary by holding down Hold and Home until it shuts down), and rerun the process.

Note: evad3rs dev team had strongly recommended upgrading to iOS 6.1.2 doing a full restore using iTunes. So if you had upgraded to iOS 6.1.2 using the OTA option or using iTunes and are having problems jailbreaking your iOS device with evasi0n, then try doing a full restore using iTunes and then try jailbreaking again to see if it works.

After the jailbreaking process is complete, do not forget to checkout our article on tips to keep your iOS device secure.

ios_6_1_2

As expected, Apple has just released iOS 6.1.2 (build 10B147) for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.

It fixes the Exchange Calendar bug that was reported few days back.

From the release notes:

Fixes an Exchange calendar bug that could result in increased network activity and reduced battery life

It is currently available via OTA. It is 12.8MB in size.

Jailbreakers should avoid upgrading your iOS device to iOS 6.1.2, until the evad3rs dev team confirm it is safe to do so. Jailbreakers should also take a backup of the SHSB blobs for iOS 6.1 or iOS 6.1.1 using TinyUmbrella before Apple stops signing iOS 6.1 and iOS 6.1.1 firmware file, if you haven’t jailbroken your iOS device with evasi0n yet.

Update 1:

You can also download iOS 6.1.2 using the direct download links available in our iOS download pages:

iOS developer and hacker, Neal has just tweeted that Apple has stopped signing iOS 6.1.1 and iOS 6.1.

Update 3:

MuscleNerd and planetbeing have just tweeted that they’re testing whether iOS 6.1.2 fixes the evasi0n jailbreak:

Update 7:

evasi0n 1.4 to Jailbreak iOS 6.1.2 Will Be Released Today

We’ll update the post with more details shortly.

The creator of the arcade classic Prince of Persia, Jordan Mechner, is back with Karateka! If you remember the original side-scrolling karate classic (created in Mchener’s Yale dorm room over 28-years ago and making video game history with rotoscoped animation and cinematic cutscenes), this updated version will be just enough to trigger your memory with the added benefit of touch-screen controls.

Accurately described by the developer as “easy to grasp yet challenging to master,” Karateka is based on rhythm-based karate combat which lends itself very well to the touch-screen interface found on the iPad.

While the graphics are among those seen in higher-end iOS games (featuring art by Jeff Matsuda, interpreting the original 8-bit images), the strength is in the defend and attack maneuvers. While there are perceived delays at times between your screen taps and the on-screen movements, overall the actions and responses are very enjoyable. The graphics are well served by the soundtrack, put together by Grammy-winning composer Christopher Tin.

The story is lovely and honorable, giving you the opportunity to play a hero and “save the lovely Mariko from the evil warlord Akuma and reunite her with her True Love.” Game-play is simple in nature: fight all enemies whose paths you cross.

What I liked: I love games that remind me of my gaming youth, and Karateka is updated nostalgia does not disappoint.

What I didn’t like: A common complaint that I agree with completely is that this game is really very short. This is unfortunate because it seems like the game is ending just as you get the hang of it.

To buy or not to buy: If you ever played the original, you will not want to hesitate before downloading this game.

Everybody wants a ‘tablet’. Everybody wants to do this, that or the other thing on their tablet. What is the number one item on your holiday wish list? A tablet. They are popular, they are convenient and there are options. Whether you play for team iPad, prefer team Android, have your fingers crossed that Microsoft finally has things figured out, refuse to bail on team BlackBerry, or have your sights set on some other flavor entirely… there is a tablet out there for every body.

We are taught as children that having focus is a good thing. Does the same theory apply to our electronics? So in a sea of possibilities, are some choices better than others?

If you love to cook and spend all sorts of time in the kitchen, perhaps a single-use tablet like the QOOQ would serve you well. It is beautiful and would look lovely on your counter; but despite being a wealth of recipes with related culinary tips, tricks and techniques, the QOOQ is a very expensive cookbook with a price-tag of USD $399. Now it’s true that they throw in at the end of the product description that you can also check your email and do a few other social networking type tasks, but don’t be fooled –this is a proprietary device. While they invite you to add your own recipes to the QOOQ, they are also equally interested in selling you their content… along with a line that makes you feel like every other tablet is just too delicate to be considered ready for prime-time kitchen use.

What they don’t mention is that there are countless protective cover, case and stand options available for those renegades willing to risk taking their other multi-purpose tablets into the kitchen.

Are there instances when single-purpose tablets make sense? Certainly. If you consider the highly-successful line of eReaders out there it is enough to prove that theory. If you are wanting a replacement for carrying around bulky and heavy hard-cover novels in your purse, a basic Kindle, Kobo or Nook device will be your work-horse; the batteries last for what seems like forever and being honest I’m much less worried about taking a USD $79 eReader with me to the beach or pool-side.

Other single-purpose tablets are out there, with more hitting the scene every day. Each manufacturer will try to explain why you can’t continue to successfully live your life or run your business without their product. In many cases, their claims prey on the inexperienced user who isn’t aware that you can put a waterproof case with a handle on an iPad or just how easy it would be to add a keyboard or use a mounting bracket.

So why should you choose an iPad (appreciating that this argument is also applicable to the BlackBerry Playbook, Microsoft Surface and many of the full-featured Android tablets as well)? The answer is easily summarized with a single word: potential. Between the considerable number of apps available (in every genre covering virtually any topic you can imagine) and the equally considerable selection of accessories, you can transform your device into something well protected in the kitchen yet sleek and portable for the boardroom with very little effort. Plus, when you upgrade you can bring your apps along with you to the new tablet (not to mention it seems reasonable to trust Apple will still be around at this time next year).

The moral of the story? Buyer beware. Despite the fact that your mother, friend, uncle, brother’s neighbor may be the best chef out there, they may be able to take advantage of the considerable library of apps and accessories available to multi-purpose tablets without the other limitations.
