  • Evad3rs: We Are Still Working on the iOS 7 Jailbreak


    In case you're in need of reassurance that an iOS 7 jailbreak is still being worked on, look no further than the recently-spoken words of iOS hacker Nikias Bassen (pimskeks), one of the hackers involved with the evad3rs hacker team.

    He explains that the evad3rs are still working on the jailbreak and asks for patience. As we could imagine, the team is probably getting pummeled by questions about ETAs and progress.

    iOS 7 was released in September, and users are patiently awaiting a jailbreak to start customizing their devices just like they were able to in the iOS 6 days. Many jailbreakers are still on iOS 6 as they continue to preserve the jailbreak that they already have.

    Since the initial release of iOS 7, Apple has released a number of updates to the operating system, which fix bugs and security issues, but even the latest version of iOS, version 7.0.3, is susceptible to a jailbreak, as iOS hacker MuscleNerd pointed out near the end of October:



    While even the latest version of iOS 7 is vulnerable to the exploits that the evad3rs have been tinkering with, Apple still has a variety of updates planned for iOS that will be out in the future. iOS 7.0.4 has been gaining traction in Web logs, and iOS 7.1 is still in the middle of internal testing. We would recommend holding off on these updates until the evad3rs have had a chance to confirm the safety of upgrading.

    While todayís Tweet from pimskeks doesnít go into any vivid detail, it does let us know that the iOS 7 jailbreak is still being diligently worked on and that there is a light at the end of the tunnel. A lot of work goes into creating a jailbreak, including testing all of the available devices, creating a tool that the average user can operate, and ensuring that the jailbreak is stable enough to release to the public.

    We continue to offer thanks to the developers that make jailbreaking possible and with them the best of luck in succeeding.

      I wonder if they'll ever tell us how much they make off of their jailbreak. By all accounts they need not, but I'm just curious now

      I will wait patiently indeed and there's no need for me to rush keep updating to the latest IOS software. Thinking that it will be more stable once you update to the latest version. Anyways, I love iOS7 a lot and I will not be updating to anymore version until MuscleNerd release the JB for it. Can't wait and patiently waiting . Without these guys my iPhone would be so simple and plain.....

      I haven't had a need for Jailbreak news for the lack of necessity to Jailbreak. I almost forgot that it was even being worked on because of that. I most likely will be keeping up-to-date as updates release as I no longer feel a real need to Jailbreak. Mayhaps after 7.1 drops I will Jailbreak but mayhaps not.

      They are making hell lot more 6 figures.Apple gives them kickback like Microsoft gives the hackers. They are getting trunk load of money from the advertising companies associated with Apple for their delay in JB.

      Hell I don't care if they get 7 figures, still running 6.1.2 and its stable a hell. So will 7 be once I can JB it, they offer it for free, so they deserve what they get, and its probably less than you think.

      Many of which are people that are just using it and don't donate. Just because people have a jail broken device doesn't mean that they donate
