After many tantalizing hints, the team behind the upcoming evad3rs jailbreak has confirmed it will come as early as Superbowl Sunday. The crew, noted jailbreak developers @pod2g, @planetbeing and @musclenerd, are working hard on the front-end code for the jailbreak, but the team members have individually assured the world that it is untethered and compatible with iOS 6.0, 6.0.1, 6.0.2 and the newly-released 6.1.
According to the team, the new jailbreak will support every iOS device on the market except for the Apple TV 3rd gen, including the iPhone 5 and iPad 4. While jailbreak has since lost some of its steam due to the addition of many consumer-facing features in iOS 6, many users still clamor for the enhanced experience of BiteSMS and Infinidock, among others (I know I do!).
Will you be jailbreaking your device when it is released? The team says it will be ready around Superbowl Sunday, but it could come earlier or later depending on when they finish implementing all the code.
