The first untethered jailbreak tool for iOS 6.0 and 6.1 was released yesterday by the hacking team Evad3rs.

The group's official website offers the evasi0n tool that can jailbreak iOS 6.0, 6.0.1, 6.0.2, and 6.1 devices.

The tool will reportedly support a number of Apple devices that include the iPhone 5, 4S, 4, 3GS, iPad 4, 3, 2, iPad Mini, iPod Touch 5, 4 and finally the Apple TV 2 as well. The only device so far that will not support the jailbreak is the Apple TV 3.

The jailbreak process is only supposed to take around 5 minutes to complete and there are only a few requirements that must be met in order to complete the process.

Users will first need a computer, running Windows (XP minimum), Mac OS X (10.5 minimum) or Linux (x86 / x86_64). They will also be required to have an iPhone, iPad or iPod running iOS 6.0 through 6.1. The last piece that is needed is a simple USB cable that is able to connect the desired device into the computer being used to complete the process, according to CultofMac.   

The Evad3rs team also posted some important tips to keep in mind when going through the jailbreak process.

They suggest users backup their devices using either iTunes or iCloud so the data will be easily recoverable.

Another tip is to avoid all iOS and iTunes tasks until the evasi0n process is done as well as to disable the lock passcode on the device being broken into as it has caused issues previously.

The jailbreak website also stated that it is alright to restart the program and reboot the device if the process is jammed.

For those unaware, the iOS jailbreak eliminates the limitations forced by Apple on devices running the company's latest operating system through the use of software tweaks on devices that include iPhones, iPads, and more.

Users can legally jailbreak their phones, however it will void the device's warranty with Apple, according to PC Mag.
