Today we have some bitter-sweet news to share with our fans who have been anxiously awaiting the release of Evasi0n: an Untethered Jailbreak utility for all iPhone, iPad and iPod touch models running either iOS 6, 6.0.1, 6.0.2 or 6.1. The evad3rs sent their fourth tweet to followers today regarding the public release of evasi0n.
Final count down toward tomorrow’s release has begun!

The good news: the evad3rs have updated the official evasi0n site to reflect their recent advancements and the progress bar now shows evasion as being 91 percent complete. Unfortunately, evasi0n isn’t scheduled to be released today – contrary to what MuscleNerd hinted at last week.
Furthermore, the next step is listed as “release” and the evad3rs have given a rather-vague release date of “tomorrow”. In addition to the evasd3rs announcing that the final countdown “has begun,” plenetbeing (a highly-skilled iOS security expert on the new dev team) reiterated that tomorrow “is a concrete release date” and it’s the only official one they’ve given thus far.
Yes, tomorrow is a concrete release date. It’s also the only release date we’ve ever given.
