Evasi0n Jailbreak Has Been Downloaded 1.7 Million Times On Day 1

It's no secret that the tech world has been in a state of commotion since yesterday which can only be attributed to the release of iOS 6.x untethered jailbreak. Most people are expecting the jailbreak to be popular but with the way things has turned out, it is safe to say that everyone's expectations have been blown out of the water. Even in the first 10 minutes that Evasi0n became available, the tool has been downloaded 100,000 times. An incredible number indeed but in case you are not yet impressed, here are more details coming straight Saurik.

Cydia Errors Evasi0n jailbreak

We have been getting many comments from readers that Cydia is somewhat unstable or just won't work. The only logical explanation is that Cydia is being swarmed by too many users at the same time which is why most people are having a hard time adding sources and installing packages. According to Forbes, as told by Saurik himself, the jailbreak has been downloaded at least 800,000 times during the first six hours. By the end of its first day, Evasi0n was downloaded 1.7 million times.

In its first six hours online, the crack had already been used at least 800,000 times, according to Jay Freeman, administrator of the Cydia appstore for jailbreakers, and he says that’s a conservative estimate–his count was fouled up when the tsunami of traffic knocked his server offline several times over the course of the jailbreak’s first day online. By Tuesday his count was up to 1.7 million.

If one has to bother doing the math, that is roughly 71,000 downloads per hour, 1,200 per minute, or 20 downloads per second. When I first downloaded Evasi0n, the official Google links were exhausted rather quickly and I have to resort to downloading from mirror links (some mirrors also ran out of juice quick). At this point, those who have been wanting to jailbreak are already enjoying their untethered devices but still errors in Cydia still persists. Well, that happens when everyone and their mothers want to access Cydia at the same time. As I always say, if you are still experiencing errors, it is better to wait until things settle down before working with Cydia to install your favorite sources and tweaks.

In case you haven't jailbroken your device yet using Evasi0n, let me point you to our detailed Evasi0n iOS 6.x jailbreak guide. [via iDownloadBlog]
