May I ask a question please of you all, and it's worth putting into another thread:

 

Why Jailbreak iOS7?

no

an unlocker is separate from the jailbreak & probably won't be out for a little while yet

Lots of the tweaks and software that I want to use isn't compatible with IOS7 yet anyway...

 

Therefore, I reckon I'll wait until the new year before I look into this properly - I've waited about a year already so I can wait another couple of weeks :)

 

(I really, really, want to get Springtomize installed again though!)

Personally I'd stay away from this.

The app phones home to an IP in costa rica and crashes if you block this communication (could be cloud flare, no idea what it's for). They have bundled a crappy Chinese pirate app store into the app, an unofficial build of Cydia, and substrate doesn't work.

Rumor is that they've been paid to bundle the app store, and have rushed it out so they get paid.

All these years and all the releases and they choose now of all times to troll the whole community with a spam release? I want to call shenanigans... 

 

Are you sure Brian?

 

Edit: The screenshot and video on RedmondPie shows the official build of Cydia and no Chinese apps..

There's still a lot of hearsay around, but check Saurik's twitter feed: https://twitter.com/...810297937838080

Yeah I'm staying clear for now as well.  Still, if you are at all interested in a iOS 7 JB, the best advice is to make sure you have a clean iOS 7.0.4 install.  Some folks with OTA are having problems.

 

Not very much works at the moment anyway.  No reason to rush into this one, but be warned that Apple will probably patch the vulnerability in the final release of iOS 7.1.  I'm going to get my device ready for jailbreak and then just hold for a bit.

Dear Jailbreak Community,

 

We are deeply troubled by the rumors and speculation surrounding our iOS 7 jailbreak. We would like to present the whole story to you.

 

Most of the concern surrounds the inclusion of the Chinese App Store Taig. In the course of developing the iOS 7 jailbreak, we were approached by the company with an offer of partnership in offering Taig bundled with the jailbreak in China. Taig is a Chinese App Store written in Chinese. tailored and, we believe, well suited to meet the needs of users for the Chinese market. Users are not locked into Taig. Cydia can also be installed and Taig removed afterwards. It would be deeply hypocritical to remove choice from the user in the course of jailbreaking.

regarding the Chinese app store, apparently it only gets installed if you've got the default language set to Chinese.
