Apple Releases 6.1.1 Beta 1 After Monday’s Evasion Untethered Jailbreak iOS 6.1 Utility - Only two days have passed since the evad3rs released their UnTethered 6.1 evasion jailbreak utility and today, Apple already seeded iOS 6.1.1 beta 1 to developers. Remember, as of now, 6.1.1 is only a beta firmware and is therefore exclusive to those who are enrolled in Apple’s official iOS developer program. Additionally, if one were to successfully restore a jailbroken iPhone, iPad or iPod touch to the 6.1.1 beta, Cydia would be removed and the device would be left without a jailbreak.

- Added indicators for transit station buildings, subway lines, and traffic lights
- Updated freeway color to green

While it’s currently unknown whether 6.1.1 patches the iOS 6.1 jailbreak exploits used in evasi0n, as MuscleNerd pointed out, jailbreakers should most definitely “stay away” from the update.
