redsn0w 0.9.15b3 version vs Evasi0n application
Is redsn0w 0.9.15b3 as powerful as Evasi0n application?
Redsn0w 0.9.15b3 is the most popular jailbreaking application for the past few years, but Evasi0n was developed in the past few months and made possible to jailbreak iOS 6.x.x versions for A5 chip devices!
But what are the differences between redsn0w 0.9.15b3 and Evasi0n jailbreaking applications?
Before iOS 6 was released everything could be jailbroken with the use of redsn0w 0.9.15b3 application, even the iPhone 4S that has an A5 chip. When iOS 6.0 became public, iPhone 4S could not be jailbroken with the redsn0w application, because the A5 chip was causing issues to the jailbreaking community.
The iPhone Dev-Team that developed redsn0w 0.9.15b3 announced that they were able to jailbreak it, but they were waiting for further iOS updates from Apple. They followed this strategy because they wanted to use the exploits they found more efficiently, so more devices could be supported with this jailbreak.
So before the Evasi0n application, redsn0w 0.9.15b3 was able to jailbreak most of the devices except from iPhone 4S, iPhone 5 and the latest iPad and iPod Touch models. It could do an untethered jailbreak to iPhone 3GS with an old bootrom, and tethered jailbreaks to iPhone 3GS with new bootrom and iPhone 4. If you have even made a tethered jailbreak you will probably know that it can be very irritating sometimes, because imagine that you accidentally your iPhone switches off and you are not at home!
What jailbreaking application should I use? Redsn0w 0.9.15b3 or Evasi0n?
Evasi0n was created by the same jailbreaking community that created the redsn0w 0.9.15b3, the iPhone Dev-Team. This means that Evasi0n can achieve everything that redsn0w 0.9.15b3 could do. Evasi0n can jailbreak ANY device that supports iOS 6.x.x version and it can do it untetheredly.
So if you come up against to this dilemma between redsn0w 0.9.15b3 and Evasi0n, then Evasi0n should be the obvious choice!
