Evasi0n iOS 6.x Jailbreak Downloaded 800,000 Times in First 6 Hours
February 5, 2013 5:49 PM
Cydia had been installed 1.7 million times by Tuesday
A new jailbreak for iOS finally arrived earlier this week, and it looks like a lot of Apple users were eager to try it out.
According to Jay Freeman, an administrator at alt appstore Cydia (a marketplace for unapproved applications),
the new evasi0n jailbreak for iOS 6.x
devices was installed 800,000 times within six hours of its release.
Freeman further revealed that Cydia had been installed 1.7 million times by Tuesday, and had about 14,000 hits per minute at peak download times. This caused the server to crash several times.
The evasi0n jailbreak allows users to install unauthorized apps onto iPhones, iPads and iPod touch devices. More specifically, it supports iPhone 3GS/4/4S/5, iPad 2/3/4, iPad mini and iPod touch (fourth and fifth generations)
evasi0n jailbreak is the first for iOS 6.x, and is also the first release since the Redsn0w
jailbreak for 5.1.1. Making jailbreaks for iOS devices have become increasingly difficult since Apple has tried to crack down on security and keep iOS as closed as possible.
"Paying an extra $500 for a computer in this environment -- same piece of hardware -- paying $500 more to get a logo on it? I think that's a more challenging proposition for the average person than it used to be." -- Steve Ballmer
