Here’s a pretty crazy statistic for you: since Sunday, the Evasi0n jailbreak has been downloaded onto over seven million iDevices, including 5.15 million iPhones, 1.35 million iPads, and 400,000 iPod touches.
While that’s not a whole lot when compared to the installed base — there are over 500 million iOS-based devices out there, and Apple sold nearly 140 million in 2012 alone — but seven million devices jailbroken in less than a week points to a very healthy demand for increased customization options on iOS.
The statistics come from Cydia creator, Jay Freeman, who claims demand for an untethered jailbreak has been pent up, since this was the longest iOS users have had to wait between a new iPhone release and a cracked OS.
Have you jailbroken your iDevice yet?
