New version addresses iPad 2 (WiFi) reboot loop, software still in beta
evasi0n7 is an untethered jailbreak for iOS 7. It works with all iPhones, iPads, and iPod touch players that are running any iOS 7.0.x firmware version, and it opens support for rogue app store Cydia on hacked devices.
As you can imagine, the software is not bug-free, and users should consider backing up their device in iTunes before proceeding to use evasi0n to jailbreak.
The evad3rs warn that “Many Cydia tweaks are not yet compatible with iOS 7.”
“Please always backup your phone before installing new tweaks from Cydia as your iPhone could be stuck in the boot process. The situation will improve as developers will update their software,” the team adds.
Also important, this time for users who’ve updated iOS 7 over-the-air, the team of hackers says, “Over The Air updates of iOS 7 are known to create an issue and make the jailbreak fail.”
“Some devices are then stuck on the Apple Boot Logo. Until we fix that, please restore your device to 7.0.4. with iTunes first.”
That fix should arrive relatively soon. However, users who are unsure that they understand all the risks involved are advised to stay away from evasi0n7.
A jailbreak tool for iOS 6.1.x firmware versions on A5+ devices (p0sixspwn) is also available for download.
