Third Party evasi0n confirmation: iPhone 4S, iOS 6.1, Sprint PCS

Just a quick post to say that the tool released by http://evasi0n.com/ worked successfully to jailbreak my iPhone 4S.

Here is the process I followed:

  1. Back up iPhone using iTunes
  2. Update iPhone to iOS 6.1 using iTunes
  3. Turn off encryption on iPhone backup (if enabled)
  4. Back up iPhone again
  5. Run evasi0n app. It will tell you what it's doing and what to expect after it completes and passes the remainder of the installation over to your iPhone to complete

These guys have done a very good job and the app is surprisingly clean and well designed. Once my phone was liberated I downloaded MyWi via the Cydia app store (which is installed as part of the jailbreak) which you can use to share your cellular connection with other devices over wifi, bluetooth and USB.

Here is a speed test result for sharing of NYC Sprint 3G over wifi. Note that the icon in the upper left changes when using MyWi:
