    "Evad3rs", a new team including some of the top iOS jailbreak authors, has just released Evasi0n, a brand-new jailbreak for iOS 6.x. The release marks the first time users have been able to deploy an untethered jailbreak on the iPhone 5.

    Evasi0n is available for OS X, Windows, and Linux and provides a quick method for users to jailbreak their devices to make use of unauthorized like themes, tweaks, and apps from sources other than the App Store.

    As an untethered jailbreak, users only need to apply the Evasi0n jailbreak once, making for a seamless user experience. Tethered jailbreaks requires users to have their devices connected to a computer each time they restart.

    Although not many reasons for me to jailbreak, I know many who will be happy.

    What jailbreak tweaks is everyone excited to try on their devices?

    Looks like a lot of people downloading. Google site shut down, so I had to use a mirror.

    It's pretty awesome that this work on all 6.x firmwares, not just the latest one.

    Make sure you update your firmware through iTunes. If you did an OTA update, you will have to first restore through iTunes before you jailbreak.

    Thanks Evad3rs!

    Forces?

    Last time I checked I was still able to purchased whatever product I choose to from any given company, nobody is forcing you to do anything, you freely chose iOS.

    Can't download at work. Wouldn't do any good anyway, since I don't sync with my work computer.

    That may have been the fastest (as far as the process goes; the wait was long), most painless jailbreak ever.

    Even though I'm using a 3GS which already had untethered jailbreak on iOS 6, for some reason I still want to download it. :D
