Off-Topic: New iOS 7.x Jailbreak available – Supports newest iDevices!
The PS Vita (well, ePSP) hacking scene is not the only scene that got an early christmas present.
Total_Noob gave us a new kernel mode exploit and several updated TN-V revisions for this years christmas, and if you own an iDevice, you can now jailbreak your iDevice if it is running iOS 7.0 – 7.0.4!
Let’s have a closer look at it…
New Jailbreak Tool Evasi0n7 can Jailbreak iOS 7.0.x (all iDevices)
Good 48 hours passed since the Evasi0n7 jailbreak tool was released, which can successfully jailbreak any new iDevice (except the Apple TV3), if said device is running the system version 7.0, 7.0.1, 7.0.2, 7.0.3, 7.0.4, 7.1b1 or 7.1b2.
A jailbreak for iOS 6.1.3/6.1.4/6.1.5 will be released soon.
The new (untethered) jailbreak can even be used with the iPhone 5S, 5C, iPad Air, iPad Mini 2 and various other devices (e.g. my iPhone 4S, refer to the screenshots). It will install an unofficial build of Cydia, which is not yet (visually) updated for iOS 7, but those things will be resolved very soon.
The version is the above screenshot is partly updated, the default Cydia will be installed upon jailbreaking your iOS7, though.
There is currently a lot of drama on going with this new Jailbreak, but I do not want to talk about since, since you can not be sure who is telling the truth and who isn’t.
The Jailbreak tool is pretty easy to use and you can be done after ~5 minutes. Be sure to DISABLE the lockscreen password and be very sure to have a full backup of your phone.
It is recommended to make a backup of your device and then restore to iOS 7.0.4. Why? If you’ve ever updated via OTA (Over the Air), then the jailbreak WILL fail and you have to restore anyways. Better safe than sorry.
It is also important to say that there are currently just a few tweaks and things updated for iOS7, so be patient with the developers, if your favorite tweaks is not (yet) supported.
Since this is more of a blog for the Sony devices, I will end this article with the download page of the Evasi0n7 jailbreak tool and I hope this iOS article has its place next to all the Sony and few Android articles over here.
