Evasi0n Unthethered Jailbreak Enters Private Beta, and a Fake Site Warning

There’s quite a bit going on in the jailbreaking community right now.

 

First, the latest jailbreak for iOS 6 and iOS 6.1 is in testing to a group of beta users. The jb is said to be scheduled for a Sunday release. If true, the headline is winding down.

This jailbreak will be untethered. Meaning, you will not have to connect your iOS device to the computer when you reboot in order to run it.

Warning: iPhone developer/hacker Planetbeing, of the Evasi0n team, said that a fake site was also found. The site doesn’t seem to cause any harm. Clicking on the download button seems to take the user to a German page that reads “The page you are looking for in the blog does not exist.”

However, this should serve as a warning to users that there are people out there who will take advantage of the pre-jailbreak release anticipation, and find ways to be malicious through fake links and websites. Wait for an official announcement. It’s much safer.
