    Are the activated iPhones required to jailbreak with Evasi0n?
    Last time when I tried to jailbreak my iPhone with Absinthe it said I need to activate my phone first. But I didn’t have the original sim to activate it so I used Redsn0w instead(with Redsn0w you can jailbreak without activate the phone first).
    But this time the Redsn0w for jailbreak iOS 6.1 isn’t released yet so I want to know if the Evasi0n jailbreak can jailbreak the unactivated iPhone.
