With iOS 6.1.1 update, Apple came out with a quick fix for the performance issues associated with the recent iOS 6.1 upgrade on iPhone 4S. Now, evad3rs has released a specially tailored evasi0n 1.3 update to jailbreak iPhone 4S running iOS 6.1.1.
Team evad3rs has confirmed the release of the jailbreak tool update through its Twitter account.
The primary concern about the new iOS firmware version was about its support for the jailbreak. The announcement came to the relief of more than 7 million people who jailbroke their iDevices with the Evasion tool. The Apple fix, however, did not address the exploits used by evasi0n and the jailbreak team proved that it's just a matter of time for them to bring out an update for iOS 6.1.1.
The folks behind the jailbreak tool said the latest evasi0n update should now correctly support OSX 10.5. In addition, they have brought down the Linux glibc requirement to 2.3.
As iPhoneHacks notes, below is the complete change log for the four versions of evasi0n:
Support for 6.1.1 on the iPhone 4S.
Disable OTA updates.
Correct time zone issue in evasi0n binary if client fails to correct it.
Prevent Weather app from appearing on iPads.
Mitigated the long reboot issue.
Fix issue with not working after connecting multiple iOS devices.
Fix blinking of the jailbreak instructions on OS X.
Codesigned Mac app.
First public release
Before you dive into the jailbreak process, make sure you update to iOS 6.1.1 with a clean, full update from iTunes. Evad3rs have cautioned not to use OTA updating. "For people with 4S wanting to update to 6.1.1: make a backup and properly restore your device in iTunes. Do NOT make an OTA update," Evad3rs tweeted.
