evasi0n is a jailbreak tool that can perform an untethered jailbreak on iOS 6.0-6.1.2 for all supported devices, excluding both Apple TV (3rd generation) revisions. It was first released on 4 February 2013 by evad3rs, and is available for Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux (x86 and x86_64). There is also a Cydia package called "evasi0n iOS 6.0-6.1.2 untether" which can untether an existing tethered jailbreak without the need to restore and use the desktop tool. It is a userland jailbreak. P0sixninja released the source code with his Twitter announcement on 9-Sept-2017.

Supported Devices

As of evasi0n's release, the only unsupported devices are the Apple TV (3rd generation) revisions, since the kernels on these devices lack an injection vector to run unsigned code. All other devices running iOS 6.0-6.1.2 are supported (including iOS 5.2 for the Apple TV (2nd generation)).

Cydia Package

The Cydia package contains just three files:


It also includes three Debian maintenance scripts: prerm (a bash script that cancels uninstallation if the device is not vulnerable to limera1n), as well as postrm and extrainst_ binaries.
