The evad3rs released the long-awaited jailbreak tool evasi0n early this week, and it has since been updated twice. The first update was version 1.1 which brought a variety of fixes:
- 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.
But today, version 1.2 brings a crucial update to the jailbreak software; it will now disable OTA updates by default.
The full change log for version 1.2:
- Disable OTA updates.
- Correct timezone issue in evasi0n binary if client fails to correct it.
There’s no need to run the jailbreak again, as the fix can be obtained via Cydia by simply updating the “evasi0n 6.0-6.1 Untether” package to the latest version: 0.3-1. Alternatively, you could achieve the same effect in the form of a tweak called “Software Update Killer.”
