Just like that, the evad3rs team has released the first untethered jailbreak for iOS 7, evasi0n7.

Available for Windows and OS X and compatible with all iPhones, iPods and iPads running iOS 7.0 to 7.0.4, the news will come as a relief to those who believed the dream to be dead.

But one must be cautioned before making the leap, or at least advised to wait a little while. Jay Freeman, aka Saurik, creator of the Cydia marketplace, had no forewarning about the new jailbreak and didn’t have time to prepare Substrate, his underlying code, for the exploit. Though the jailbreak does install a version of Cydia that ostensibly works, he recommends people hold off until he can take a look at it and determine which add-ons work and which are broken.

If you’re still an intrepid early adopter who fears no dragons, go forth and let us know what works.

    Tried it on my 5s but now stuck at the apple logo and will have to restore and try again

      Do you need to backup your shsh blobs before installing? I tried to do it on my iPad 3 and it didn’t work, so I will just wait

    • Tom Adams

      There Is no such thing as downgrading if you save the shsh anymore so there I’d no point in doing it

      You’ve gotta be kidding me? Lol you are clueless. Stick to blackberries. Much better for the simpleton.

    I always wait a day or two after the initial release. The bugs are usually fixed by then.
