Jailbreak update for iOS 6.1.1 on iPhone 4S

Jailbreak update for iOS 6.1.1 on iPhone 4S The evad3rs team has released an update for its evasi0n iOS 6.x jailbreak tool in order to add support for iOS 6.1.1 on iPhone 4S handsets.
At the time of writing, iOS 6.1.1 is only available officially for the iPhone 4S. It was released early by Apple after reports of bugs with iOS 6.1 that seemed to affect iPhone 4S handsets more than other devices. Vodafone in the UK and 3 in Austria had encouraged users to hold off iOS 6.1, but Vodafone then encouraged its iPhone 4S users to get the iOS 6.1.1 when it became available.

The updated evasi0n v1.3 now adds support for the iPhone 4S model, which is not much of a surprise as it had already been confirmed that the bugs exploited by evasiOn in iOS 6.0-6.1 were unfixed when Apple pushed out iOS 6.1.1 to developers to test.

In the week or so that evasi0n has been out, more than 7 million devices - including iPhone 5 and iPad mini - have been jailbroken, allowing for non-approved apps and code to run on the devices.

Apple warns users about the dangers of jailbreaking, including security risks of running unapproved code and the loss of warranty for jailbreaking a device.
