A few days ago Apple released iOS 6.1.1 to iPhone 4S users around the world. As always, many iPhone 4S owners have upgraded their device and lost their ability to jailbreak yet again.

But don’t worry !

Although the desktop evasi0n tool was incompatible with iOS 6.1.1, the vulnerabilities that were used for the evasi0n jailbreak were not patched up.

Today, the evad3rs team have updated their evasi0n tool to version 1.3. This upgrade is specifically for those owners who upgraded their iPhone 4S by accident to 6.1.1

For now version 1.3 only supports iOS 6.1.1 on the iPhone 4S, but I’m hoping that once the rest of iOS 6.1.1 is released, the tool will still be compatible.

Evasi0n 1.3 has absolutely no change in the way you jailbreak your device, so you can use our previous evasi0n jailbreak tutorials & videos to get the job done.

Once again do not update your iPhone 4S to 6.1.1 over the air, as per @planetbeing’s instructions. Make sure you grab iOS 6.1.1 from our iOS firmware download page, and do a iTunes update or restore.

The new evasi0n 1.3 also has full OS X 10.5 support.

This was the evad3rs initial goal with the first release of evasi0n, however due to some compatibility issues, Mac OS X 10.5 support, didn’t arrive until today.
