  • 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 today’s Tweet from pimskeks doesn’t 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.

      Why the hell they are delaying JB when Apple released for them a beta version of IOS 7 ages before the IOS 7 was released! Is not it a suspicious act? why the hell they are telling now IOS 6.1.3 is to be JB first when they were telling us since 2012 that Apple patched all holes to make IOS 6.1.3 out of JB! Its old mexim: offenders leave trace of their offence!

      I honestly don't think we'll see an iOS 7 jailbreak most definitely before 7.1, as well as before the new iPad mini 2 is in stores

      Lol. This is always the same conversation. The people in the conversation change. But it is always the same I remember when they dropped the JB same day apple released the iOS.

      And if you can't live without a jailbreak. Then modify your purchasing to suit. I bought my iPhone 5 while apple was signing 6.1.2 and the jailbreak was out.

      I think they make a bit of money. They put work in. It's not hundreds of thousands tho. If it was that much, a major company would come in and take the work over and charge everyone. Think about it.

      And I agree with several other people. iOS 7 is nice. Adds a lot
      Of functionality to the iOS that the jail break brought I just refuse to live without my phone being themed. That's my thing So I will always have a jailbreak. Please stop
      Complaining tho. It makes everyone look bad.

      I find it hilarious that there are those who are so adamant about not wanting/needing a jailbreak.

      More power to you if stock is all you need.

      I understand what you mean considering ios7 has made many people forget about a jb
      Including myself.
      Would be cool to use a few tweaks but I can wait as long as it takes them.

      Those of us who jailbreak are a very very small percentage compared to those who do not
      Jailbreak their devices so I fail to see any humor there.

      It was so much easier when the Dev Team just refused donations, then you didn't get idiots saying they are just in it for the money.
      MuscleNerd still refuses to take donations and any donations should always be as a thank you for all the hard work these guys put in, not in expectation of anything. They do their best with or without your donations but most of them now do accept donations as a thank you.

      Just be patient. And it will
      Come. They said it will drop before the end of the year this time So no more than 2 months
      I agree w/ everything else you said but I 'think' you've got your facts wrong. It was @winocm that said a jailbreak for iOS 6.1.3/4 will be released before the end of the year. I don't recall the evaders ever saying the iOS 7 JB will come out this year.

      Giving ETAs causes nothing but grief.
      It will be released when it's ready, not before.

      Is it OK to update to 7.0.3 while we wait with a 5S?
      Cause mine seems to have the compass sensor thing where even sitting on a flat table it shows it as being off.

      People should be okay to update to 7.0.3, MuscleNerd mentioned a week or so back.

      Exactly my thoughts. People shouldn't be donating expecting immediate results. Few people donate to a charity and expect the charity to do something immediately with it (one exception being perishable food or supplies for disaster relief), so why should this be any different?
