The long-awaited untethered jailbreak for iOS 6.x is finally here
Although the jailbreak was
initially expected to arrive yesterday
, the hacker group known as evad3rs finally released their long-awaited jailbreak for iOS 6.x today. The group wanted to wait until iOS 6.1 was pushed out the door to prevent Apple from deploying quick fix to squash the exploits needed to fuel the jailbreak.
As with previous jailbreaks, evasi0n allows users to install unauthorized apps onto iPads, iPhones, and iPod touch devices. In this jailbreak, the list of supported devices is quite extensive:
iPod touch (fourth and fifth generations)
The jailbreak software can be downloaded now (
), and the install process takes no more than a few clicks and few minutes to finish. The evasi0n jailbreak works on iOS 6.0, 6.0.1, 6.0.2, and 6.1.

But as a reminder, please backup your device before proceeding with the jailbreak and realize that
will be slammed with people trying to access the servers for the first 24 hours (or longer).

So jail breaking and rooting are both required to enable this very sought after function.
Android phones can WiFi tether out of the box, it's the (US?) carriers that block it. You don't have to root to gain the advantages that jailbreaking offers, it's already there.
Sideloading apps can be enabled in the settings, customization is very easy, and you only really need to root to gain access to hardware tweaks like overclocking and undervolting.
It might be easier to jailbreak, but only for reasons that are already supported in Android.

"Android phones can WiFi tether out of the box, it's the (US?) carriers that block it."
Exactly... It has nothing to do with Android and is 100% a carrier based requirement. Android is free and open and 100% tetherable as released.
