The jailbreak community has done it again and pulled off a universal untethered jailbreak. The Evad3rs team has come up with an untethered jailbreak for the newly released iOS 6.1.1. iOS 6.1.1 was released in a hurry to fix issues with the iPhone 4S and the Evasi0n jailbreak tool has been updated to deliver the same untethered jailbreak it delivered for iOS 6.0/6.1 on iOS 6.1.1.
It was noticed rather quickly after its release that iOS 6.1 was causing some iPhone 4S users problems relating to cellular performance but has has been fairly prompt in releasing a remedy and the 23MB update should end these problems. A tweet that was sent out earlier by Planetbeing confirmed that Apple had not prevented the jailbreak with iOS 6.1.1 and also that an update to Evasi0n was imminent. That update has been released and Evasi0n v1.3 is now available and the jailbreaking process is just as simple as it was before.
Apple usually responds with an iOS release that patches exploits used for the purpose of a jailbreak but the timing of the Evasi0n tool probably means that Apple has not yet had the time or resources to create, test and release an update. That day will probably arrive soon and for all devices so it is important not to update your device to any future firmware until a reputable developer states otherwise especially if you want to keep your jailbreak.
For those who are using iOS 6.1.1 the updated Evasi0n tool is now ready to download for Windows, Mac and Linux users. Most of the bugs present in the initial Evasi0n release seem to have been ironed out but if you do spot any, be sure to report them to the Evad3rs team so that they can deal with them.
