Evasi0n iOS 6.1 jailbreak updated to fix bugs, Cydia apps fix weather app, reboot time Update address bugs with weather, reboot.
Some users who opted to jailbreak their iOS 6.0-6.1 devices using the evasi0n jailbreak tool from evad3rs this week were reporting a couple of problems afterwards.

Some users complained of issues with the iOS Weather app, where it would crash spontaneously. Another problem came when rebooting the device, with users reporting long time for the reboot process to complete.

Evad3rs quickly moved to provide fixes for the problems, and have now also updated the original jailbreak - evasi0n v1.1 - so that the bugs will be fixed on devices that are jailbroken from now on.

You can get evasi0n v1.1 from here.

Or you can visit the evasi0n homepage at: evasi0n.com

For those of you who have already used evasi0n and just want to fix the bugs without redoing the process, then you can do it right from your device. Just follow these instructions.

  • Turn on your device and look for the Cydia app, launch it. Don't worry if you get a Preparing Filesystem message which hangs there for a while before going back to the lock screen - simply go back and run Cydia again and it'll be fine.
  • When Cydia launches, tap Changes at the bottom of the app.
  • There should be two "Available Upgrades", evasi0n 6.0-6.1 Untether and UIKit Tools.
  • Install evasi0n 6.0-6.1 Untether by tapping it, then "Modify", tap "Upgrade" and then "Confirm" it.
  • Do the same to install the UIKit Tools update
  • REBOOT THE DEVICE right away.
The bugs should now be gone! :-)
