Screenshot Appears to Show Proof of a Jailbreak on iOS 7 Beta
Although itís only been roughly three weeks since Apple seeded a beta version of iOS 7 to developers of Appleís iOS Developer Program, one question that many people are already thinking of includes whether or not iOS 7 can be jailbroken. It seems like we might have just received some confirmation that iOS 7 can be jailbroken as Ryan Petrich, the popular jailbreak tweak developer, recently tweeted a screenshot which shows the Activator jailbreak tweak running on iOS 7 beta.
As seen from the screenshot, Petrich seems to have gotten Activator running on an iPod that is clearly running iOS 7 beta. What isnít clear though is if Petrich has discovered a new exploit to jailbreak iOS 7 or if it is Comexís developer account based exploit that was used by hackers to root iOS devices. This developer account based exploit is often referred to as a failbreak and canít be released to the public as a developer account is needed to achieve the root status.
One thing to keep in mind is that hackers donít release a jailbreak for beta versions for a variety of different reasons so donít expect any jailbreak tool to help you jailbreak your version of iOS 7 beta anytime soon.
