The Evasi0n jailbreak tool which was released 4 days ago was a great success brining more than 100,000 in just 10 minutes, well the number does not end there. In fact, an unbelievable seven million devices have been jailbroken in just four days following the release of the evasi0n jailbreak for iOS 6.1.
More than four million unique devices used Cydia since the evasi0n jailbreak release. (Note: due to downtime, we may have not counted some.)

According to the founder of Cydia, Jay Freeman aka Saurik, the current number of Apple devices with Evasi0n jailbreak has risen from 1.7 million to nearly 7 million today, thus making the free tool the most successful jailbreak ever, on any device, period…
As of Thursday night, Freeman’s alternative app store had received visits from 5.15 million iPhones, 1.35 million iPads, and 400,000 iPod touches that were jailbroken with evasi0n, the first jailbreaking software for the iPhone 5 and iOS 6.1.
The famous Saurik also states that the tool has generated “insanely more new traffic” compare to Absinthe, even Jailbreakme, the popular online jailbreak released by Comex in the summer of 2011, which was used by only 1.4 million devices in its first nine days, making Evasi0n the fastest-adopted jailbreak software of all time.
The sucess behind the Evasi0n jailbreak is due to the greater diffusion of Apple devices on the market, and the long gap between the release of jailbreak. Now more than 7 million people are enjoying the freedom, and Apple should certainly think about this.
