The evasi0n jailbreak has already arrived for iOS 6.1 and already the evad3rs Web site has seen about three million unique visitors, all in pursuit of the brand new jailbreak that would help them evade the security restrictions put in by Apple with the release of the new refresh.
However, those who are yet to jailbreak their iPhones and are actually looking to perform it in a few days, but are moderately new to the process, they need to follow and remember a certain things so as not to damage their devices in any way possible. Below is a list of few things that the user must keep in mind before and while performing the evasi0n jailbreak on their iDevices.
Although this is a brand new jailbreak from the evad3rs team (comprising of musclenerd, planetbeing, pod2g, and pimskeks), the requirements for both the device and the system to work on remain the same. The most important thing to remember here is that it is a lengthy process and will take some time to conclude successfully. It is suggested to give it at least five minutes of time without any disturbance to see through the process.
Users will also need a computer that at least runs Windows XP, or a Mac OS X with a minimum of 10.5, or even Linux (x86 / x86_64). As far as the device is concerned, users will need to note that they have an iPhone, iPad or iPod running iOS 6.0 through 6.1. If in doubt, the version of the iOS can always be checked from Settings – General – About – Version. It is needless to say, at this point, that the user will also need a USB cable to connect the device to the computer.
Before beginning the process, users will need to avoid all iOS and iTunes related tasks until evasi0n jailbreak is complete. It is also important to disable the lock passcode of the iOS device before using evasi0n as there are possibilities that it can create certain unwanted issues.
Backing up the device, at this point, is also necessary, so if something goes wrong, there is always the option to recover the data. This can be done by using iTunes (or iCloud). However, if the process does get stuck somewhere, it's always safe to restart the program, reboot the device, and rerun the process again. If needed, users are advised hold down the Power and Home button until the device shuts down.
Lastly, there might be an error on OS X 10.8 saying that evasion can't be opened. To mend this problem, users will need to control-click the app and when the revealed context menu comes up, choosing 'Open.' On the ensuing dialogue box, users will need to choose 'Open' as well.
There might be certain other problems with the evasi0n jailbreak process as well, apart from other user and jailbreak related questions. If so, users can head over to this link to address all such problems and ask what they need to know about it.
