After months of hard work a well known member of the jailbreaking community @MuscleNerd has confirmed that there will be a 6.1 jailbreak released in the next few days. According to his tweet, it is likely that the jailbreak will be released on Sunday February 3rd.
Just days before @MuscleNerd's tweet, @pod2g identified the members working on the jailbreak and said they were calling themselves the @evad3rs. A group which includes @planetbeing, a member of the team who, as we might remember, has been working on a jailbreak and had previously stated the possibility of a jailbreak being released.
With these news, many have prepared themselves for the public release of the 6.1 jailbreak entitled evasi0n, which is expected to come this Superbowl weekend (2/3/13) but with final beta testing and completion of the jailbreak, @pod2g notes, in a tweet earlier today, that the jailbreak might be released before or after this weekend.
