With iOS 7 well on the way to being released publicly next month, it’s time to turn our attention to the iOS 7 jailbreak. Let’s break the subject down a little and take a look at what’s happened in the past and what’s going on now.
iOS 7 – To Jailbreak or Not ?
Work on an untethered jailbreak utility began a couple of months ago, when iOS 7 was initially revealed to us. On June 10th the developers got their first taste of what was to come and began looking deep into it, to find out what holes were there for a jailbreak to be successfully built. As time has gone on, the betas have been released at a regular rate, giving the developers more information to play with. We are now on beta 6, with possibly just the GM version to go before public release.
Who will Release iOS 7 Jailbreak ?
We know that we have 2 main contenders to produce the necessary utility needed to Jailbreak iOS 7. First up is Team Evad3rs. They built the hugely successful Evasi0n utility, to jailbreak iOS 6-6.1.2 and they have confirmed that they are in the process of updating Evasi0n to support iOS 7. One team member, Pod2g, was initially so disgusted with iOS 7 that he tweeted he was seriously considering a move to Android. However, he’s still there and still working on the iOS 7 jailbreak so it can’t be all bad.
Tweeting Crazy iOS Jailbreakers :
The second contender is P0sixninja, ex Chronic Dev. team leader, responsible for utilities like Absinthe and GreenPois0n. He has been extremely vocal on Twitter in recent months, starting off by tweeting whenever he found another exploit and eventually telling us, in uncertain terms, that iOS 7 was his. Since then he has hinted at more than an iOS 7 jailbreak, something along the lines of a bootrom jailbreak, pretty much what Redsn0w is. This was followed by a public Twitter brawl between P0sixninja and another well-respected developer, Muscle nerd, during which it emerged that it won’t be a bootrom exploit, instead it will be an open jailbreak repo, a place where developers can place their code and have their say in what happens in future jailbreaks.
Is it the End of iOS 7 Jailbreak ?
Not at all. In fact, this is just the beginning of a new era for the jailbreak community. With a brand new firmware to play with, we can expect the iOS 7 jailbreak to be something special. Stay tuned for more news.
