  • What iOS 7 Means for Jailbreakers; Modders and Tweak Lovers


    With iOS 7 having been unveiled at Monday’s WWDC 2013 keynote, jailbreakers must now try to decide if they want to keep their older firmware with their jailbreak, precious jailbreak tweaks, and themes or upgrade to the latest and greatest operating system for iOS devices when it officially comes out in the Fall of this year.

    iOS 7 has taken a lot of ideas from the jailbreak community, such as toggles, animated wallpapers, Notification Center on the lock screen, improved interfaces, blocking texters and callers, multitasking application previews, and many more. Many people will be quick to jump into the new operating system when it's released because it takes many of these highly-demanded features and integrates them into the firmware stock.

    One thing to bear in mind is that a jailbreak is about more than just some fancy toggles here, and some new interfaces there. A jailbreak is more about having open access to the device’s filesystem, a precious luxury that gives the user more than just basic control over the device, but rather full control over the device. iOS 7 won't give you this feature. With that being said, you shouldn't be so quick to upgrade to the latest firmware if you treasure this luxury.

    Apple’s latest and greatest iOS devices cannot have their firmware downgraded, so if you choose to upgrade you must be aware that there is no going back. You will be stuck at the firmware that you update to until hackers have a chance to create, test, and release a stable jailbreak for everyone. Unfortunately, like every major operating system release, we will need to wait a while for a jailbreak to be developed by iOS hackers.

    Currently the evad3rs hacker team and iOS hacker p0sixninja have a stockpile of exploits ready, but there’s no guarantee that Apple hasn’t been paying attention and patching them in iOS 7, and there’s no guarantee that any open exploits won’t be sealed by the final release.

    While iOS 5 and iOS 6 might not look as sharp as the new iOS 7 Apple unveiled Monday afternoon, many of the new features like toggles, multitasking previews, and camera filters can be duplicated with jailbreak tweaks in Cydia right now. There is also a good chance that the jailbreak community may try and develop tweaks that mimic additional iOS 7 functionality for iOS 6 users. So with that being said, we highly recommend you hold off on iOS 7 for now if you're a developer and hold off in the Fall when it's released to the public until a jailbreak can be released.

    Are you planning to stick with your current jailbreak on iOS 5 or iOS 6, or are you going to upgrade to iOS 7 as soon as the software update is released in the Fall? Share in the comments!

      I can assure you, unless you see it posted here on MMI or some other reputable site, it's going to be fake or malware etc etc.

      These sites touch base with most of the JB Devs so believe me when I tell you - you will not find a legit jailbreak before a site such as this does!!

      The site you mention is fake -- but hey, instead of just asking us, why not be the guinea pig.... try it and report back
