iOS 6.1.1 already gets the jailbreak treatment

Well that was quick. Remember back in the stone ages (read: a few years ago) when you had to wait days or even weeks to get your iPhone jailbroken again when Apple released even a minor software update? Sometimes that wait still applies now for bigger releases, but that’s luckily not the case for the latest small iOS patch. iOS 6.1.1, released only yesterday, already has an untethered jailbreak thanks to Evasi0n version 1.3.

The reason for the speedy release is Apple didn’t block the jailbreak this time. iOS 6.1.1 was rushed out to fix cellular performance issues that specifically affected iPhone 4S devices, and the release doesn’t do much else. Evasi0n tweeted last night that version 1.3 of the jailbreak supported iOS 6.1.1 on the iPhone 4S. The jailbreak update also fixes some bugs in previous versions as well.

To download the jailbreak for Windows, Mac, or Linux, visit The jailbreaking process is fairly straightforward once you download the software and follow the instructions. Evasi0n also has some FAQs and read-mes listed on its website that are worth checking out if you’re inexperienced at jailbreaking.
