  • 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.

      Until Apple figures out how to make texting work the way BiteSMS works (quick reply, etc) I won't even consider running a stock iOS unless by some stoke of bad luck I'm forced to..... Most of the other tweaks are fun but trying to do anything on the phone and hold a texting conversation is impossible using the stock app..... Love my jailbreak and donate with every new release... I figure if those guys are making good money they'll keep doing what the do.... Thanks to those much smarter than me...

      Would be cool to use a few tweaks but I can wait as long as it takes them.
      I'm with you on this, while I'm still excited to jb my 5S, I'm loving the look and feel of iOS 7

      I have iOS 7 on my iPads and JB iOS 6 on my phone. 7 is too bright for me. Too much white space, it feels like.

      Read the article again....if you want a jb now then stay on iOS 6. Don't upgrade until specified by the evader's (in which mmi ALWAYS posts an article about). If you're already on ios7 then I'm not sure if it matters because I'm sure that an ios7 jb will probably be released for the current FW that is newest when the jb is released. It's just a guess so don't take that as fact.

      Yep. You're right. No ios7 JB until early February like last time.. Last 2 jailbreaks both took until Late Jan early Feb. And ios7 is a beast. Even harder to jailbreak. Then the tweaks we use will take a lot of rewriting too.. I expect we'll be fully functional by early March at the earliest. Long way to go yet.

      That's about right. Doesn't matter to me. I secured my jail break. And will not update until we have full functionality of winter board. Until then. A nifty tool is iLex Rat. Which allows us to restore back to factory or wipe Curia clean without having to upgrade the iOS



      I apologize for my misdirection. Point is, it takes time now. And we as the end user, have to be patient and support our devs. And support our iCommunity as a whole. Appreciate the catch bro.

      What are you talking about? I think you are greatly confused here! I follow the Dev and evaders along with Musclenerd and they have clearly said to update to IOS 7.0.3 will save your Jail brake option. THere are two Jailbreaks being worked on, One for IOS 6.0.3 by wincom and one for 7.0.3 by evader's and they are not working on an IOS 6 Jailbreak.

      The problem with Jailbreak is there are so many fake information sites out there with fake twitter accounts people read the fake stuff thinking its real and then argue with the wrong information. When a real Jailbreak and real information is released it will be a headline news here and on twitter and on iclarified for example.


      IOS 6.0.3 JB by wincom
      IOS 7.0.3 JB by evaders team

      as of when I posted this they are not out yet and its safe to update to 7.0.3

      One last thing, if you do not update to 7.0.3 now before APple releases 7.0.4 or 7.1 you will be stuck on 6x for Jail break until a new Jailbreak comes out unless the team says the new IOS did not close Jailbreaking. If the team can use the exploit to JB 7.1 once they get a hold of it soon, it may delay our JB until 7.1 is released

      I would not wait I would upgrade to 7.0.3 ASAP

      Winocm is not the same as wincom
      Evad3rs are not the same ad the Dev team
      The Dev team never have and never will take donations.

      I agree that they get mixed up

      I have been following the real wincom and he's a funny guy ( or gal) lol

      As far as ModMyI I agree it will be reported here, but reading the old posts and pointing to them you can get the wrong info at times, officially you can update to 7.0.3 and still jailbreak when its ready.

      I have no idea if it will be true updating to 7.0.4 or 7.1

      I made a mistake its @winocm ( 36.5k followers) its the real person, so kill me

      Also I thought some of the same people on the original Dev team are on the evad3rs team?

      guess planetbeing ( 194.8k followers) is not a good one to follow either? Oh I give up...... this site at times makes it hard to know real info because you would rather bash then give out real info....

      I made a mistake and these two among a few others I follow for info. the only one that updates a lot ( not about JB all the time) is winocm

      Just like grant pointed out, it will be January February for release more than likely. Then another month or so for updates to everything else. And when they drop the jailbreak. It will be for the most current iOS available. It always has been. Don't think it would change now. And if it was different. Then why would they wait. Most of it is common sense if you just think about it. I have been jail breaking for a while now. And my best advice is to update your phone every February or march. Lol. I have 2 years in a row. Bought new phone, same day came home and jail broke

      I really hope iLex is updated to support further iOS updates and jail breaks. And if it is, this would be key for anyone with the jail break This tweak allows you to restore your phone without updating your iOS. Or it will allow you to wipe everything from Curia on your phone and start with a fresh jailbreak. Cause often we install things that conflict or cause our phone to go hay wire. Lol.

      It's all good. Nothing to be upset about. And no reason for us to bicker about anything. We are all patiently waiting. Even us that have a jailbreak. Lets keep it positive and support the devs with positive attitudes. Cause that's what counts.

      I hope they can JB 7.1 and wait for it to release the JB then, because 7.1 would be a decent milestone for IOS 7 with 8 around the corner next year................

      From the evaders, planetbeing & pod2g are the only ones I actually pay attention to. Musclenerd never says anything useful, Saurik rarely says anything for jailbreak releases and I've never followed pimskeks. I don't even know why I was following @winocm but I guess I was! LOL!

      Aside from that, I've always followed @p0sixninja since the Chronic Dev Team came out. @Chronic is a liberal douche, now and @tyler_nettleton only takes about how in love he is w/ his girlfriend!

      I also follow @comex & @chpwn just in case they pull something out of nowhere!

      Don't get me wrong....
      I deeply appreciate their hard work but I don't think holding onto every word they say on Twitter is useful. They'll finish when they're finished; everything in between is 'whatever.'
