    Default What iOS 7 Means for Jailbreakers; Modders and Tweak Lovers


    With iOS 7 having been unveiled at Monday’s WWDC 2013 keynote, jailbreakers must now try to decide if they want to keep their older firmware with their jailbreak, precious jailbreak tweaks, and themes or upgrade to the latest and greatest operating system for iOS devices when it officially comes out in the Fall of this year.

    iOS 7 has taken a lot of ideas from the jailbreak community, such as toggles, animated wallpapers, Notification Center on the lock screen, improved interfaces, blocking texters and callers, multitasking application previews, and many more. Many people will be quick to jump into the new operating system when it's released because it takes many of these highly-demanded features and integrates them into the firmware stock.

    One thing to bear in mind is that a jailbreak is about more than just some fancy toggles here, and some new interfaces there. A jailbreak is more about having open access to the device’s filesystem, a precious luxury that gives the user more than just basic control over the device, but rather full control over the device. iOS 7 won't give you this feature. With that being said, you shouldn't be so quick to upgrade to the latest firmware if you treasure this luxury.

    Apple’s latest and greatest iOS devices cannot have their firmware downgraded, so if you choose to upgrade you must be aware that there is no going back. You will be stuck at the firmware that you update to until hackers have a chance to create, test, and release a stable jailbreak for everyone. Unfortunately, like every major operating system release, we will need to wait a while for a jailbreak to be developed by iOS hackers.

    Currently the evad3rs hacker team and iOS hacker p0sixninja have a stockpile of exploits ready, but there’s no guarantee that Apple hasn’t been paying attention and patching them in iOS 7, and there’s no guarantee that any open exploits won’t be sealed by the final release.

    While iOS 5 and iOS 6 might not look as sharp as the new iOS 7 Apple unveiled Monday afternoon, many of the new features like toggles, multitasking previews, and camera filters can be duplicated with jailbreak tweaks in Cydia right now. There is also a good chance that the jailbreak community may try and develop tweaks that mimic additional iOS 7 functionality for iOS 6 users. So with that being said, we highly recommend you hold off on iOS 7 for now if you're a developer and hold off in the Fall when it's released to the public until a jailbreak can be released.

    Are you planning to stick with your current jailbreak on iOS 5 or iOS 6, or are you going to upgrade to iOS 7 as soon as the software update is released in the Fall? Share in the comments!

    I will install iOS 7 beta on my iPod touch 5g (i have dev account) but will keep jailbroken iOS 6 on my iPhone 5 so i can try iOS 7 without sacrificing my jb

    Ps: wouldn't it be nice if we could multiboot different iOS versions the same way we can with winders 7 and 8 that way i could have the latest iOS and a stable jailbrake all on one device

    I agree entirely with z3r01. Jailbreaking for me wasn't about opening up the phone but about getting ultimate functionality which is what iOS7 seems to be delivering.

    To me jailbreaking was 100% about getting easy to access toggles for wifi/bluetooth/brightness. Apple took the best of jailbreaks and actually threw them into their OS officially. I'm going legit.

    They should work on a jailbreak for 6.1.3 and 6.1.4 now cuz I want it and a lot of the new tmobile users and the people who upgraded or got new phones. Jailbreak isn't as needed on iOS 7 as it is on iOS 6.

    It's a tough call but I will probably still jailbreak on 7 to get a little of the tweaks that apple has not uincluded.

    there is no way i'm giving up designing my own icons. NO WAY. i love that my iPhone doesn't look like any other phone in the world, because my theme is only on my phone.

    Keeping my jailbreak!
    I love having the ability to tether on my unlimited data plan.
    Upgrading would eliminate that function and my kids would be really upset when they tried to use Netflix, HBOGO etc...

    Unless you're hiding something from your wife, app specific codes don't really apply as a needed tweak for everyone that apple will make it possible....just put a normal pass code on your iDevice and don't let anyone touch it.....I do admit that quick reply is a needed function, but I been handling with Siri to reply for me.....I am gonna miss tethering at times but not as much

    taken from the Jailbreak community? lmfao. ALL OF THIS IS FROM ANDROID and that's exactly where the Cydia devs got the ideas from.

    some old guy once said that 2011 was the year of the copycats because other companies made tablets...I wonder what he'd say about 2013.
