Evasi0n iOS6 untethered jailbreak released: Users can finally tweak Apple (AAPL) iPhone 5 and iPad 4

The jailbreak community has waited months for an untethered iOS6 jailbreak and the @evad3rs team has finally released it.

Early Monday, February 4, the evasi0n.com website gave the update, "97%: Final testing and preparation. Come back soon!"

Many had hoped the jailbreak would be released on Sunday, February 4 and it looked like it might happen before the end of the night. 

During the afternoon the completion status was at 85%.

Later that evening it had crept up to 92% and by Monday morning it was at 95%, slowly increasing until the progress bar lingered at 99% around 9a.m.

The new jailbreak is compatible with all versions of iOS6 and supports every device that can handle Apple's latest firmware release.

That means that users of the iPhone 5 and the iPad 4 can finally tweak, enhance and alter their devices as they wish.

The "untethered" jailbreak allows users to use their device and not have to worry about having it plugged into their computer every time they need a reboot or happen to run out of battery life.

As of 12 noon on Monday, February 4, Evasi0n announced that the jailbreak was finally available through their Twitter page:



Their website was immediately overloaded by the demand and displayed an error message that warned that, "The site may be experiencing excessive load."

Under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, jailbreaking iPhones is legal in the United States, though Apple warns users that doing so can violate the warranty.
