Untethered evasi0n7 iOS 7 Jailbreak released

Apple released iOS 7 in September and despite a lock screen exploit that was quickly closed with a patch, there hasn't been any recent jailbreaks released for the mobile OS. That changed early on Sunday morning when the well know Evad3rs hacker team released their latest version of evasi0n. This new build, called evasi0n7, is supposed to work on all versions of iOS 7 released to date.

The program itself runs on both Windows and Mac and allows users of iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch products to gain deeper access to the OS, mostly to run apps that are not distributed by Apple via official channels. That includes Cydia and apparently the creator of that program, Jay Freeman, was surprised at the sudden release of the jailbreak program, at least according to his Twitter messages:

As with any jailbreak program, running this software is not recommended for the casual owner of Apple's mobile products. It could affect a device's battery life, security set ups and much more so people who install evasi0n7 do so at their own risk.

Saurik is butthurt because he didn't get a piece of the Chinese money. Personally I would stay away from this jailbreak.

There's far more to it than that. The letter from evaders shifted the vast majority of the blame onto Saurik, but other developers seem to back Saurik up. Either way, it's a sad day for the jailbreak community.

if i had a ton of followers, and had someone say, I will give you a million(s)+ dollars if release this jailbreak to your followers with our adware, I am sorry, but i would do it, and not feel bad at all while i sip on my Malibu rum on a beach on a tropical island.

Prediction: all of you would too...

Jailbreak, or zero-day exploit that allows arbitrary code execution?

Scary. I bet it would be pretty easy to set up an iPhone botnet.

If you believe what Evaders have posted on their web site, you can delete the chinese app store and install your own. There really have been a lot of different app stores, and installing extremely sketchy repositories sources to Cydia is trivial.

Still, proceed with caution. My plan is to get my iPhone ready (install non-OTA of iOS 7.0.4) and wait for the dust to settle. I hope that Evaders release a version with an iOS 7 ready substrate.

Release a new iPod Touch ffs Apple. 5th gen is so slow it's painful. Too bad they ditched 16:10, a 16:9 screen is way too narrow on such a small device.

I have the 32gb model and it runs perfectly fine

If you all want to place blame, then put it on the infamous Geohot. He had some of their exploits and a phone call recording exists of him admitting to being offered $350,000. Even admits in the call that none of it was his work that he was trying to sell. Dude is shady

The chinese store installs only if you have your computer language set to chinese... otherwise you get Cydia.
