  • MuscleNerd: iOS 7.0.2 is Safe to Update to for Future Jailbreakers


    Thursday afternoon, Apple released a software update dubbed iOS 7.0.2 to the public. The update intended to fix a potentially harmful lock screen glitch that could allow an unwanted user to make phone calls from the device.

    While the update is recommended for all iOS 7 users, we always take caution for those that care about jailbreaking. We initially recommended that users did not upgrade to iOS 7.0.2 until a prominent hacker in the jailbreak community had time to examine the update and ensure that it didn’t hinder progress.

    Well fortunately, that time has come. iOS hacker MuscleNerd has confirmed Thursday evening that iOS 7.0.2 does not appear to hinder jailbreak exploits that are being tested on iOS 7. Instead, the update appears to only be there to remedy the lock screen glitch. Consider that a green light.

    In simpler terms… if you want to be able to jailbreak your iOS 7 device, you will be safe updating to iOS 7.0.2. Apple is testing another software update that will be released in the future dubbed iOS 7.1, which we would also suggest waiting to install until hackers have had a chance to look at it as well.

      Yep! I broke my iPhone 4, had to get a 5 out of necessity and it came with iOS 6.1.4. Now I'm on iOS 7 waiting patiently for a jailbreak.

      Honestly mine seems to last longer, one thing that saves a huge amount of battery is taking off auto brightness and adjusting it yourself as necessary.

      While I'm as anxious as everyone to have a new jailbreak, I think we may be waiting a while.. even if they find a way to do it soon.

      The reason being is that this is such a major release for Apple that they will probably be rolling out patches like this for a bit.. it might be 7.1 before we see a jailbreak.

      Personally I don't mind that much because all of the major things I used in a jailbreak are now available because Apple ripped off the JB community.. the only thing I crave a JB for is to replace the flat UI!!

      I only jailbroke for ..

      1. To store more apps per folder, iOS7 fixed that
      2. To block people I didn't want to hear from, without paying $5.00/mo for my phone company to do it, iOS7 fixed that
      3. Quick reply to SMS, iOS still doesn't have that...

      OTA runs a lot SLOWER than through Itunes with the cable, especially if you have lots of apps \, etc.

      Aw, that's not good. I'm already jailbroken and fine, I just wanna' start working on theming for iOS7, haha. It's gonna' be awhile anyhow since Winterboard is said to probably not work on 7 for quite awhile after a JB. Sad news. =(

      Bottom line is.............. Does 7x allow you to theme like JB? No
      I don't know...I had 7 on my iPad Mini and loved it!!! I am back to 6.1.3 and absolutely HATE IT, now. The jailbreak better be worth it!

      I don't theme my devices so that's not a bonus for me. All I care about (for an iPad) is Iconoclasm (5 Top & Bottom), KBShortcuts and KillBackground. Everything else is already on iOS 7.

      You might as well just stick with ios7 if that's all you're gonna do.

      I'm guessing you updated rather than a clean install of iOS7?
      With a clean restore the battery lasts longer than iOS6.

      I'm still on the fence. I downgraded the day before 7 released 'just because.'

      just one of many articles

      don't know if the supposed work around will fix it 100 %
      IOS 7 is really for the A6 and 7 not for older phones
      Doesn't that article also link to the fix?

      People often complain at first, it really doesn't appear to be a major problem.
