All across the jailbreak community people are patiently waiting for no less than two different jailbreaks to be released. First up, evad3rs are diligently working away on the iOS 7 untethered tool while those on iOS 6.1.3 are eagerly awaiting the release of their untethered jailbreak.

The only jailbreak that has been released in recent times is one called RageBreak. However, this is a tool that makes use of the old Limera1n exploit and, as such, only works on the iPhone 4. However, it hasn’t really been a successful release; many people are complaining of issues surrounding the jailbreak including some that have had their iPhone4’s bricked by the software.
We have also heard recently that, with iOS 7.1, currently in beta form, Apple may have been successful in patching jailbreak exploits. Until this has been determined for certain, people are advised not to upgrade to 7.1.
While you are waiting for the jailbreaks, there is a way to get the Cydia icon on to the Home screen of your iOS 7 iPhone 5S. Please note – this is only an icon, not an actual jailbreak. Have a look at this video showing you how to do it:
