  • 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.

      Comex's one is closed (think iOS6), more likely to be Chpwn's which Planetbeing updated for i5. Sadly it's reserved to the JB Devs.

      Only sign of development we need to see for iOS 7 is WINTERBOARD!

      How come the top bar is pixilated? I thought iOS 7 dropped support for on non retina displays except the iPad 2 and mini. Seems like it could be a fake! Don't hate me!

      It's because the image isn't of the greatest quality. It appears to be 100% real. Can't wait for iOS 7 official, my iPhone 5s, and the iOS 7 jailbreak!

      Hopefully the other JB devs get on board with p0sixninja's open source idea. Half of the delay on the iOS6 JB was a lack of leadership/coordination among the JB devs.

      This picture doesn't really mean anything to be honest. Could just be because he is a developer

      I wonder if they'll release it for iOS 7 or if they'll wait for iOS 7.1.

      I'll only need:

      1. BiteSMS
      2. InfiniDock
      3. SwipeSelection
      4. MultiIconMover
      5. PandoraDownloader
      6. Bridge
      7. MewSeek
      8. ProTube
      9. Safari Download Manager

      Hopefully apple doesn't release the public version of 7 with a "bug".

      I've always wonder how the legendary tweak zephyr is going to adapt to iOS 7.

      This doesn't really mean anything at the moment. Sure its sweet to see, but this is just a beta! Can't wait for the release of iOS 7 though!

      so far iOS 7 has been pretty sweet when it doesnt crash (which is expected on early betas) but well, it will get that GM and eventually fina and then comes the wait for a JB

      which in my understanding, might not come right away after its release....not until we see a refresh on the next iphone model to come out
