As we are all probably aware by now Apple recently released their firmware update iOS 6.1.2 which has apparently fixed a lot of the small issues people where having with their devices. iOS 6.1.2 fixes an Exchange calendar bug that could result in increased network activity and reduced battery life. The release of the new firmware was quickly followed by news that the new jailbreak tool from the Evad3rs, evasi0n would support the firmware update. Evasi0n 1.4 has now been released with full support for iOS 6.1.2 users. If you have updated your device to the new firmware and are wanting to jailbreak again then you are going to need to run the new version of evasi0n which can be downloaded from our downloads hub or from one of the supported links below.

Step 5: You should then see see a message on the evasi0n tool that it has detected your device.
Step 6: Click Jailbreak in order to begin the process.
Step 7: You will notice that the evasi0n will perform several steps on its own which will include:preparing jailbreak data, injecting jailbreak data, rebooting the device, uploading Cydia, and uploading the Cydia packages list. Do not play with your device, simply sit back and be patient.
Step 8: The next step is a little different to previous jailbreaks, it will ask you to unlock your device and click ONCE on the new evasi0n icon on your springboard. The screen should go black and then return to the Home screen.
Step 9: Almost there, few more steps. You should now see more messages like injecting jailbreak data messages, and Root Filesystem successfully remounted on the evasi0n tool.
Step 10: After that has successfully completed then you should notice that there is now a message saying “done!” your device should then reboot. This is the part of the process where you need to be a little patient folks. Do not go messing with the device, simply sit back and let evasi0n do its thing. Your device may restart a few times.
After your device has completed rebooting then you will once again be presented with a few on screen messages including the new evasi0n logo. Messages include the following:
- Initializing offsets
- Finding offsets
- Patching kernel
- Cleaning up!
- Done! Continuing boot
Once complete, you will be taken to the lock screen which indicates that the jailbreak process is complete! Simply slide to unlock your phone and hey presto, there is Cydia. You will need to open Cydia and let it initialise which will require one more reboot when that is complete. Upon restart of your device you are official jailbroken running iOS 6.1.2 using evasi0n jailbreak tool. Enjoy folks.
