Saurik Reports 18 Million Jailbroke iOS 6 Before Apple Patched the Exploit

It seems that the jailbreak community is back with a vengeance. Saurik — the man behind Cydia, as well as various behind-the-scenes utilities that are essential for jailbreak developers — stated that more than 18 million devices running iOS 6 visited Cydia before Apple pushed out the iOS 6.1.3 update, which finally patched the exploit used by Evasi0n.

Evasi0n was hugely successful, and it came at a time when many (including myself and many others) were questioning whether the jailbreak community could successfully continue. The users who jailbroke using Evasi0n have acted as a catalyst, prompting developers to not only update previous tweaks, themes, and apps but also to create entirely new projects that — in many cases — truly change iOS for the better.
