A program to jailbreak Apple devices running iOS 6 or above was released Monday, sparking over 100,000 downloads in the first 10 minutes of availability. The jailbreak modifies Apple's mobile firmware, letting users load applications from outside of the official AppStore, and access iOS files that Apple usually shields.
Though technically intended for iOS 6.1, the Evasi0n jailbreak utility works with all versions from 6.0, according to the Evaders, the group of leading iOS hackers who released the program at Evasi0nJailbreak.com. That means it can be used by owners of iPhone 3GS through 5, all iPads except the first one, iPad mini, iPod touch 4 and 5, and second generation Apple TV.
