Evasi0n jailbreak tool updated to version 1.2, contains bug fixes and disable OTA updates

The evasi0n jailbreak tool has now been updated twice since its initial release on Wednesday. The latest version which sees it hit the 1.2 release mark contains some reasonably important enhancements. If you have been holding off jailbreaking and decide to do it today or in the near future, make sure you get the latest version.

Since release, the evad3rs team have fixed various issues with the jailbreak some of which include long reboot issues, timezone problems and the strangest one of all, the weather app appearing on iPads. A lot of people had been experiencing that last issue when jailbreaking your iPad all of a sudden the Apple stock weather app appears on your home screen.

Another important feature of the latest 1.2 release is the option of disabling OTA (Over The Air) software updates. This will prevent you from accidentally updating your iOS software when a new version gets released which would subsequently lose your jailbreak.

If you have already jailbroken your iOS 6.0 or 6.1 device with earlier versions of the Evasi0n jailbreak, there’s really no need to do it again. Each of these updates are available through Cydia as an update on your device. The Evasi0n jailbreak has certainly proved popular; we heard a few days ago that Cydia had received visits from over 7 million devices since the evasi0n jailbreak release.
