Following reports that an untethered jailbreak was finally set to be made available for iOS 6.1 users on Monday, the Evad3rs Jailbreak Team has made their jailbreak tool evasi0n available for download. The tool jailbreaks Apple’s (AAPL) iPhone 5, iPhone 4S, iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPad mini, all iPad models and third-, fourth- and fifth-generation iPod touch models running iOS 6.0 or iOS 6.1. The jailbreak is untethered, which means users will not have to connect to their computers to boot their devices after the jailbreak is applied. iOS blog Jailbreak-untethered.com has a step-by-step guide that explains the entire process, and the site’s guide is linked below.
