Evasi0n team breaks all records – 7 million jailbreaks for 4 days!
No, there is no mistake in the title of this article – 7 million people have used the evad3rs team’s new iOS 6 Jailbreak since it was released 4 days ago, announced Jay Freeman from Cydia. The website that provides apps for iPhones with a jailbreak has recorded a traffic of about 7 000 000 users last night, which is a few times more that the traffic caused by the release of the previous jailbreak from evasi0n – the Absinthe for iOS 5. What’s more, the traffic is constantly increasing!
Among the users that have visited Cydia and downloaded apps are owners of the three types of devices with iOS 6 and their number is varying. The owners of iPhone 5 are the most – more than 5 150 000 people, followed by 1 350 000 iPaders and 400 000 users of iPod touch.
The jailbreak blew off every possible record for a jailbreak usage put in the past, including the before mentioned Absinthe compatible with some versions of the iOS 5 and even the Jailbreakme3, developed as a web-based jailbreak by Comex (a popular iPhone hacker). The first 9 days after its release in 2011 got only 1 400 000 online jailbreaks.
With all these figures of people, hurrying to jailbreak their iDevices, we are wondering why they come to buy them at first place if they don’t like being restricted this way and ask ourselves what they would do if no jailbreak was released.
