iDevice owners who have been eagerly awaiting the iOS 6.x jailbreak will be pleased to know that the jailbreak, named "evasi0n", is almost complete and per reports, private testing has already begun and it may be released as early as Monday.
Those who keep track of the progress for the iOS 6.x jailbreak would know that the jailbreak became official this week and even got christened "evasi0n." The evad3rs (team of hackers made up of musclenerd, pod2g, pimskeks, and planetbeing) launched their official Web site in Wednesday, Jan. 20.
The Web site has a progress bar which gives updates on how close the jailbreak is to completion. The Linux version of the jailbreak, which will let iFans break free from Apple's shackles, is still being worked on; however, both OS X and Windows apps are finished.
"99%: Final testing and preparation.Come back soon!" notes the site.
Once all the versions are finished and have been painstakingly tested, evasi0n should be ready for its public release. Reports have indicated that a Sunday, Feb. 3, release is on the cards, but pod2g said "nothing is certain," hinting that the release could be sooner or later than the estimated deadline.
Barring Apple TV 3, the evasi0n jailbreak will likely work on all iOS devices running iOS 6.0 or later. With just one percent remaining, the release is knocking at the doorstep.
