The latest jailbreaking tool by Evad3rs has been updated to version 1.2. According to the release note, the main feature of this new update is the ability to disable over the air updates from Apple. This will hopefully prevent users from accidentally removing the jailbreak.
According to the changelog:
– Disable OTA updates.
– Correct timezone issue in evasi0n binary if client fails to correct it.
– prevent Weather app from appearing on iPads.
– mitigated the long reboot issue.
– fix issue with not working after connecting multiple iOS devices
– fix blinking of the jailbreak instructions on OS X.
– codesigned Mac app.
– first public release
It’s great to see the group is activating looking to improve their widely popular iOS jailbreak exploit.
Writing for Forbes, Adrian Kingsley-Hughes pointed out that,”If you’ve already jailbroken using evasi0n then there’s no need to reapply it to get these fixes as they are available as separate downloads from the Cydia app. However, if the bugs put you off from jailbreaking before, then now may be a good time to take another look at evasiOn.”
