18 Million Devices Were Jailbroken Before Apple Blocked Evasi0n With iOS 6.1.3

Saurik reveals that about 18 million devices were jailbroken before Apple released iOS 6.1.3 to block the evasi0n jailbreak, reports Forbes.

In the six weeks since evasi0n was released, however, close to 18 million devices have already been jailbroken, according to data from Jay Freeman, the administrator of the Cydia app store for jailbroken devices. He says he’s counted 18.2 million unique devices running iOS 6 visiting Cydia, including 13.8 million iPhones, 3.4 million iPads, and 1.1 million iPod Touches. Those numbers vastly exceed previous jailbreaks such as Jailbreakme 3, a popular hacking tool for iOS released in the summer of 2011 that was used on around 2 million devices, according to a count at the time by creator Nicholas Allegra.

Notably, planetbeing (David Wang) says that at least one bug remains unpatched. The Evad3rs also a backup supply of 'secret bugs' that are being saved for future jailbreaks. According to the hacker, it's likely the team won't release another jailbreak for some time. "We’ll probably wait until the next major release," says Wang.

If you are still on iOS 6.1.2 or lower, you can find instructions on how to jailbreak your device using the iClarified Jailbreak Wizard.

I bought my iPod Touch 5 from eBay and it was already updated to 6.1.3. FML.

I'm on 6.1 at the moment - is there any way to get to 6.1.2?
iCrunch - March 21, 2013 at 10:10am
No. Why didn't you upgrade when you had the chance? In any case, 6.1 and 6.1.2 are kind of the same thing, so you're good to go.
iCrunch - March 21, 2013 at 6:45am
At least half that will lose their jailbreak by updating to iOS 6.1.3.
Duh! - March 21, 2013 at 2:53am
If you were previously on a lower iOS and then was dumb enough to break rule #1 of jail breaking (which is to NEVER UPDATE until a JB can be verified for new OS) then you can still do a custom restore to an older version. Download the custom firmware for you device and just follow the many tutorials from this site.

From 6.1.3 nothing you can do... But the good part is that you have a good updated map of Japan :)

There should be around 400 Million devices Out there, which makes a JB Rate of 4.5%. Not too Bad...
