The site for the new jailbreak just went live. The jailbreak will be called evasi0n and it will be compatible with 6.0 - 6.1. They are finishing the GUI right now and still need to do beta testing after that.

I have my phone set up for a push notification when the jaibreak is released. Aside from that, it's life as usual, and no expectations on the release time or clock-watching here.

How do you do that?
I use Tweetbot, but I couldn't find an individual notification setting in it, so I temporarily installed the official Twitter app just for the purpose of push notifications from @evad3rs. You just go to their profile page, follow them and turn on notifications.

Those who don't use Twitter can set up a text notification (U.S. only). Just text "follow evad3rs" to 40404 and you'll get text messages. Text "stop" to turn it off.

I'm getting excited now. Going to update this iPhone 4 to 6.1 and leave it as it is. I don't want to risk jailbreaking it and have something happen that I know I canny fix.

On the other hand though, going to update my old 3GS and jailbreak THAT instead.

That iPad baseband left a bad taste in your mouth, huh? Can't blame ya. It made updates and restores a major PITA. eBay or carrier factory unlocks are so nice by comparison.

You bet it did. Still didn't get my 3GS unlocked from orange. They're now EE. They owe me £60 and no unlock. Think ill be suing them

Any word if BiteSMS has become IOS 6.x friendly?
From the BiteSMS.com/FAQ:

"Will biteSMS work on my iPhone 5 or 4S when the untethered JB for iOS6 is released?"
"It works on iOS 6 for sure (as we have a tethered JB for that purpose). It should work correctly on iPhone 5, but we will not know for sure until we can JB an iPhone 5 and provide confirmation. Rest assured we are on high-alert to do this and if necessary fix any issues quickly."

Thanks Europa. I've been out of the loop for awhile.

I'm skipping the Super Bowl so I can play with my jailbreak LOL
Hell yes, I'm having a Super Bowl thing at my house though. I hope to have a solid JB by 5PM. Then I can just tinker with Cydia while the game is going on....and in between Beer Bongs..
(Side note incase anyone has a comment....I hope Bite SMS is ready for iPhone 5)
