"The tool is available for Mac OS X (10.5 or higher) Windows XP or newer, and Linux from the evasi0n website completely free of charge," the team stated. "The "untethered" status means you can safely reboot your device without having to worry about losing your jailbreak or any of the built-in features, as opposed to a "tethered" jailbreak that requires you to plug your device into a computer and re-run the jailbreaking app anytime you reboot it," the team added.
