Nearly seven million devices have been jailbroken by Evasi0n in four days making it the most popular jailbreak ever, according to Jay Freeman founder of Cydia.

As of Thursday night there were 5.15 million iPhones, 1.35 million iPads, and 0.4 million iPod touches jailbroken by Evasi0n.

Saurik tells Forbes that Evasi0n has brought Cydia “insanely more new traffic” than the release of the jailbreak tool called Absinthe that worked on some versions of iOS 5. And even Jailbreakme3, the popular web-based jailbreak released by iPhone hacker Comex in the summer of 2011, was only used on 1.4 million devices in its first nine days online, Comex told me at the time.

Part of the reason for the surge in jailbreakers is the large number of new iOS device owners coupled with the long wait for a jailbreak. It took 136 days for an iPhone jailbreak to be released. That's compared to 98 days for the iPhone 4S, 38 days for the iPhone 4, and 14 days for the iPhone 3GS.

The reason I bought 2 Iphone 5s because of the jailbreak. I jailbroke over 50 Iphones and Ipad in the past 2-3 days. I love jailbreak ..an Iphone without the jailbreak is like a woman without a PUSSY!

I could have sworn that there were articles a few months ago claiming that people don't want to jailbreak anymore due to the statistics of the amount of devices currently jailbroken. There just wasn't a tool available!
