On Wednesday, the popular evasi0n7 jailbreak tool for iOS 7 was updated to version 1.0.5, adding official support for the recently-released iOS 7.0.5 firmware, which corrected network provisioning for some iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c devices.
It was originally pointed out by i0n1c that evasi0n7 version 1.0.4 could still jailbreak an iOS 7.0.5 device with a little iOS build number editing, but with version 1.0.5, evasi0n7 supports iOS 7.0.5 out of the box officially without needing any work on the user's end.
So now, evasi0n7 can jailbreak the following iOS firmwares:
- iOS 7.0
- iOS 7.0.1
- iOS 7.0.2
- iOS 7.0.3
- iOS 7.0.4
- iOS 7.0.5
- iOS 7.1 beta 1
- iOS 7.1 beta 2
- iOS 7.1 beta 3
The fourth beta of iOS 7.1 kills the evasi0n7 jailbreak, and the fifth beta of iOS 7.1, which was seeded to developers only yesterday, kills even more exploits used by evasi0n7. With that being said, jailbreakers should stay far away from iOS 7.1 until an updated jailbreak tool can be completed.
If you absolutely want to upgrade your iPhone to iOS 7.0.5, it's now safe to do so, but if you're happily jailbroken on an earlier firmware already, there's really no reason to go out of your way. IF you do decide to upgrade, you should perform a clean DFU restore to iOS 7.0.5 after backing up all of your data to ensure the most hassle-free upgrade.
