The first untethered iOS 6 jailbreak known as evasi0nwas reportedly installed on seven million devices within the four days after it was released on Feb. 4.

Apple attempted to shy users away from the latest jailbreak released by the hacking team Evad3rs with an updated warnings list on the dangers of jailbreaking an iOS device. The list published on Feb. 3 includes potential problems for jailbroken devices that may have program instability, dropped phone calls, security vulnerability and the shortening of battery life. Users who use the jailbreak process on their devices will also have their warranties voided.

It does not appear that the warnings have stopped many users as Cydia administrator Jay Freeman told Forbes on Friday that close to seven million iOS users installed evasi0n on their devices within four days of the jailbreak software's release.

The latest jailbreak has created a wave of traffic for Cydia, an app store that caters to jailbroken devices.

Freeman stated that around 5.15 million iPhones, 1.35 million iPads and 400,000 iPod touches accessed the famous jailbreak app store which goes to show how popular the iOS 6 jailbreak was with users.

The evasi0n tool 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 that the break does not currently support is the Apple TV 3.

The jailbreak process is only supposed to take around 5 minutes, according to CultofMac. When completed it 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.

The 1.1 version of the Evasi0n tool was released on Thursday for which fixed long reboot times and a bug that caused the default Weather app to crash, according to iPodnn.
