About iPhone 5

Click here to enlarge

The iPhone 5

is a touchscreen-based smartphone developed by Apple Inc.. It is the sixth generation of the iPhone and succeeds the iPhone 4S. The phone is a slimmer, lighter model that introduces a higher-resolution, 4-inch screen to the series with 16:9 widescreen aspect ratio. The phone also includes a custom-designed ARMv7 processor called the Apple A6, an update to Apple's mobile operating system known as iOS 6, and support for LTE.
Apple held an event to formally introduce the phone on September 12, 2012. Apple began taking pre-orders on September 14, 2012 and over two million were received within 24 hours. Initial demand for the iPhone 5 exceeded the supply available at launch on September 21, 2012, and has been described by Apple as "extraordinary", with pre-orders having sold twenty times faster than its predecessors. After the launch of the device, Samsung filed a lawsuit against Apple, claiming that the iPhone 5 infringes eight of its patents.
While reception to the iPhone 5 has been generally positive, the new Maps application featured on iOS 6 was negatively received and was reported to contain many serious errors. Consumers and reviewers have noted hardware issues, such as an unintended purple hue in photos taken by the iPhone 5, consumer reports of the coating chipping off, and the presence of light leaks on white variants of the device. Incompatibilities with LTE networks in some regions have been noted.

How to jailbreak iOS 6.1.2 with evasi0n 1.4

Jailbreak iOS 6.1.2

Evasion 1.4 was just released with support for the recently released iOS 6.1.2, and we’ve got the details on how to use it to jailbreak your iDevice of choice. Although iOS 6.1.2 doesn’t bring any new features to the table, there is a bug fix that makes the upgrade worth it.
Take a look inside as we show you how to jailbreak iOS 6.1.2 with evasi0n 1.4. This tutorial is for the Mac, but the same principal applies across all computing platforms.

Video Tutorial

How to jailbreak iOS 6.1.2

Notes: As always, before we get started, there are a few things to keep in mind here. First, read our jailbreak preparation post. It covers a few vital ideas that should make your life easier when it comes to managing and maintaining your jailbreak.
Be sure that your device’s passcode lock is disabled. The passcode lock can interfere with the jailbreak process. Also, make sure that when you upgraded to iOS 6.1.2, it was done, not via an OTA update, but via an iTunes update. While it’s possible that it will work, OTA updates have caused known problems in the past with regard to jailbreaks, it’s best to just play it safe. Okay, let’s get started!

Step 1: Head over to our download page, and download evasi0n 1.4. The downloads are available for Mac, Windows, or Linux.
Step 2: Save the evasi0n app to your desktop, and run it.
Step 3: Connect your iOS device to evasi0n, and ensure that evasi0n detects your device. Evasi0n should work with any iOS 6 firmware from iOS 6.0 to iOS 6.1.2. In this case, you will be using iOS 6.1.2.
Step 4: Click the jailbreak button, and the jailbreak process will begin. Be patient, as this takes a while. You will notice your device reboot several times throughout the entire process. The main thing is just to be patient.
Step 5: Eventually, evasi0n will ask you to unlock your device, and tap the Jailbreak icon on your Home screen once. Follow these instructions, ensuring that you tap the icon only one time, and then leave the device alone and let it continue.
Step 6: The evasi0n app will complete its course, and you will be able to click the Exit button. The iOS device, however, still needs to finish up a few additional steps, so again, be patient and don’t touch your device.
Step 7: Eventually, the jailbreak will finish, and you can unlock your iOS device, and open the Cydia app on your Home screen. Cydia will need to initialize, which takes about 1 to 2 minutes. After the initialization is complete, the device will respring again.
Step 8: Reopen Cydia, select Hacker, and begin enjoying your newly jailbroken iOS device running iOS 6.1.2.

Remember, this is an untethered jailbreak, so you can feel free to reboot your device at will. Also, remember to take the necesarry steps to protect your jailbreak. you can do so by reading our post that describes how to protect device.

Be sure to let me know what you think in the comment section below if you have any questions, comments, or concerns regarding this latest update to evasi0n.

evasi0n iOS 6.x Jailbreak Untethered Errors And Fixes [FAQ]

Click here to enlarge
As we are covering the official evad3rs updates on this website, lots of emails are stacking up on my email account related to errors and troubleshooting the evasi0n jailbreak tool. As the evad3rs have been very busy compiling the evasi0n jailbreak for all of us, they have had very less time to deal with all the errors that are popping around with the use of this tool. As I have tested this tool, overall it goes on pretty smoothly without any errors. Hit the jump to fix and troubleshoot the errors related to evasi0n tool.

Click here to enlarge

Error 1: Cydia not loading up and cydia packages not installing

Cydia related errors in evasi0n are currently happening due to intense server overload on the cydia's servers. Saurik is onto it and is busy fixing this issue. It is not caused by some technical problem in your idevice rather it is occuring simply due to millions of people are trying to access Cydia at the same point of time. See this tweet from Saurik below..

Update : Cydia Telesphoreo repo has been fixed, you can access it now if you still can’t, change your DNS to Google’s server and try to access it again.

Error 2: Does evasi0n support OTA update

No, If you updated to iOS 6.1 via OTA (over-the-air update) it won't work on your idevice. Here's a quick solution :

Step 1: Firstly make a full backup of your device

Step 2: Update to iOS 6.1 using iTunes

Error 3: evasi0n does not work and fails everytime

It is happening because you have a passcode enabled on your idevice or you have left iTunes
running during the jailbreaking process. Here's the fix..

  • Disable the passcode lock on your idevice
  • Don't touch your computer while evasi0n is running

Error 4: evasi0n gets stuck on “patching kernel”

If your idevice gets stuck on displaying “patching kernel” don't worry, be patient as it takes time as long as 15 minutes Click here to enlarge. If it still doesn't progress, press Power+Home button for a long time to force a reboot. Then again jailbreak your idevice from the very beginning. See the tweet by pod2g below.

Error 5 : evasi0n doesn't recognize my idevice

Although it's working fine on every idevice as I have personally tested it. Make sure your idevice is supported, see the official list below.

  • iPhone 3GS
  • iPhone 4,4S
  • iPhone 5
  • iPod Touch 4th Generation
  • iPod Touch 5th Generation
  • iPad 2
  • iPad with Retina Display 3rd and 4th Generation
  • iPad Mini

As of now, any generation of the Apple TV is not supported. If it still doesn't work, restart your computer system or try to switch the USB ports, as they can cause havoc sometimes.

Error 6: evasi0n is stuck on "finding offsets"

This part of the jailbreak process takes a bit of time like around 8-10 minutes. If you still see no progress, do a Power+Home button force reboot your idevice.

Error 7: Jailbreak button appears to be grey/disabled, when the idevice is connected

This occurs because your iTunes backup is not protected by a password. You need to re-enable password protected backups again once the jailbreak process gets over.

Error 8: Weather app bug

If you have an iPad, an extra Weather app will appear after the jailbreak is completely finished. It is just hidden in a .plist extension configuration file. The evad3rs dev team member David Wang aka planetbeing is currently working on this bug fix with a Cydia patch obviously. See the below tweet from musclenerd...

Update : Fix the weather app not working error/bug by installing 2 cydia packages, details here or by re-jailbreaking with the updated version of the tool here.

Click here to enlarge

Error 9: idevice freezes and gets stuck at Apple logo on booting

This problem is because of a random boot bug or it might be occuring due to an incompatible tweak. You can use any of the 3 solutions given below..

  • Hold Power+Home buttons to force reboot your idevice and it should work normally with the next reboot.
  • If it still doesn't work, try increasing the volume while booting
  • Uninstall Activator and Sbsettings tweaks

Update : You can fix the long reboot bug through Cydia here or by jailbreaking again with the updated version of the tool, see the how-to guide here.

Error 10: idevice displaying wrong time zone and time after evasi0n jailbreak

As we are always updating this article with latest errors and bug fixes. We have been seeing a new bug that involves the wrong time zone and time after using evasi0n tool. To fix the incorrect time error toggle “Set Automatically” option to OFF. For the wrong time zone, follow this method below...

Step 1: Navigate to Settings > General > Date and Time > Set Automatically > ON

Step 2: Now you need to go back again to Settings > Privacy > Location Services (ensure it’s set to on) > System Services > Setting Time Zone. Set this option to ON.

Error 11: Cydia appears small after rebooting (quarter screen bug)?

This error or bug is known as the quarter screen bug. This bug looks like this on an iPad and iPhone (shown below).

Click here to enlarge

Click here to enlarge

A lot of users are reporting this quarter screen bug. The root cause of this is that you might have installed an tweak incompatible with iOS 6 running on your idevice. Follow the method given below to solve the issue.

Step 1: Firstly we need to disable all the tweaks. Reboot your idevice while holding the volume up button. .

Step 2: Launch Cydia and uninstall all iOS 6 incompatible tweaks.

If this doesn't work for you, to use Cydia again, just respring your idevice. However, this fix is not a permanent solution, it will again cause the same problem after a reboot.

It is 'Illegal' to Unlock iPhones Purchased After January 2013

The U.S. Library of Congress has ruled that jailbreaking the iPad and unlocking iPhones purchased after January 2013 is no longer legal.

Jailbreaking iPhones is still allowed under exemptions to the DMCA that will be in effect for three years.

Computer programs that enable wireless telephone handsets to execute lawfully obtained software applications, where circumvention is accomplished for the sole purpose of enabling interoperability of such applications with computer programs on the telephone handset.

This exemption is a modification of the proponents’ proposal. It permits the circumvention of computer programs on mobile phones to enable interoperability of non-vendor- approved software applications (often referred to as “jailbreaking”), but does not apply to tablets – as had been requested by proponents – because the record did not support it.

In addition the new exemptions only allow for phones you already have, as well as those purchased before January, to be unlocked. Phones purchased after January 2013 can only be unlocked with the carrier's permission.

Computer programs, in the form of firmware or software, that enable a wireless telephone handset originally acquired from the operator of a wireless telecommunications network or retailer no later than ninety days after the effective date of this exemption to connect to a different wireless telecommunications network, if the operator of the wireless communications network to which the handset is locked has failed to unlock it within a reasonable period of time following a request by the owner of the wireless telephone handset, and when circumvention is initiated by the owner, an individual consumer, who is also the owner of the copy of the computer program in such wireless telephone handset, solely in order to connect to a different wireless telecommunications network, and such access to the network is authorized by the operator of the network.

This exemption is a modification of the proponents’ proposal. It permits the circumvention of computer programs on mobile phones to enable such mobile phones to connect to alternative networks (often referred to as “unlocking”), but with limited applicability. In order to align the exemption to current market realities, it applies only to mobile phones acquired prior to the effective date of the exemption or within 90 days thereafter.

PS3/Game Consoles
The Library of Congress rejected a proposed exemption that would allow for jailbreaking of game consoles.

Because the Register determined that the evidentiary record failed to support a finding that the inability to circumvent access controls on video game consoles has, or over the course of the next three years likely would have, a substantial adverse impact on the ability to make noninfringing uses, the Register declined to recommend the proposed class.

This is quite unfortunate news for those in the jailbreak and unlocking community. We'll keep you update with any more developments.

Ednacell Comments:
In addition the new exemptions only allow for phones you already have, as well as those purchased before January, to be unlocked. Phones purchased after January 2013 can only be unlocked with the carrier's permission.

This is the loop hole here, weak link to all this nonsense.

can only be unlocked with the carrier's permission
1. Anyone can go to ebay and buy unlocked iPhones. Or from Apple Store
Or get iPhone unlocked and contract-free

2. Well know facts that after the user completes his/her contract expires they are free to unlock phones.

3. USA Verizon can only sale unlocked iPhone 5 ruled by the FCC

Think about it..
The only ones that can offer and control real factory unlocking service for iPhones is Apple via itunes.
Why only USA? Why only iPad/iPhone is no longer legal? Why not Samsung, Blackberry, LG etc.

All bullshit money talks if you don`t have it, buy a locked iphone and wait for contract to expire or buy outside the USA. Either way the rotten Apple make the money and USA operators are happy a real GSM FUCKRUM in real life action.

Fuck You Apple...USA Operators and GSM FUCKRUM.

HAHA now the Xsim or Unlocking Sim Cards, are out lawed in USA

not clear if you buy a locked phone in USA, and go live out side USA, and unlock it in other country if that`s Illegal..

Change Your iPhone’s And iPad’s Carrier Logo Without A Jailbreak [Windows]

CustomCarrierLogo allows you to customize your iOS device’s carrier logo to something totally different. This is limited to devices that can support data/phone service, so no WiFi-only devices. Some carriers might not be supported because they do not use images for their logos (e.g. Sprint). The good part is that CustomCarrierLogo works WITHOUT a jailbreak on any firmware, so iPhone 5’s and iPad LTE’s work. If you do not see your device/carrier within CarrierEditor in the drop down lists, it means that your device is incompatible.
Jump over the break to check out how to use CarrierEditor to change your carrier logo…

NOTE: to learn how to enable numeric signal strength on your iPhone, check out this post
NOTE: Mac users, check out this post
1. Download CustomCarrierLogo

3. Load CustomCarrierLogo
4. Click ‘Let’s Get Started’
5. On your iOS devices go to Settings > General > About > scroll down until you find ‘Carrier’

6. Go back to CustomCarrierLogo, enter your carrier version, choose your iOS device and carrier and choose what type of logo you want. An image or text.
7. Click ‘Create IPCC Carrier Bundle’
8. You will notice two new files on your desktop. In this case ‘ATT_US_13.3.ipcc’ and ‘ATT_US_original.ipcc’.
9. Plug-in your device to your PC and load iTunes.
10. Hold Shift and click on ‘Restore iPhone’.
11. From the drop-down menu in the bottom right corner, slect ‘iPhone/iPad carrier configuration file ( .ipcc )’ and select the appropriate .ipcc file ( not the original )

12. Reboot your iPhone ( or turn on/off airplane mode )
