Great news from the jailbreak community has reached the public eyes early this morning when Pod2g developer has tweeted out that he is becoming more and more confident about an iOS 7 public jailbreak”.
In the same time, the developer wanted to clear things up by saying that this does not mean a jailbreak will come any time soon. It may take a while, or it will be unveiled just after the iOS 7 will be released to for the public use.
With the public release of iOS 7 set on September 18th, this is definitely good news for all jailbreakers around the world. Those who rely on a jailbroken device will receive Pod2g’s tweet more as a confirmation for the upcoming public release of a jailbreak tool for iOS 7.
Besides Pod2g’s tweet, the Evad3rs Dream Team has reportedly started investigating for unpatched exploits with the iOS 7 Gold Master release, according to a recent tweet posted by Planetbeing. For those who do not know, the Evad3rs team comprises musclenerd, pod2g, pimskeks and planetbeing, who are trying to identify which exploits if any, are functional with iOS 7.
Their tweet clearly states that the team is actively working to unleash the highly anticipated dual jailbreak for iOS 7 as well as for iOS 6.1.3/6.1.4.
Recently this week, Apple seeded iOS 7 GM download to developers. Soon after jailbreak developers put their hands on the iOS 7 GM, they have started to see which of their exploits worked, and which ones are not useful for a potential iOS 7 jailbreak.
For those who are currently jailbroken on iOS 6.x, it is advised not to update your device to iOS 7 when Apple will push it out next week. So far, jailbreak developers offered only a confirmation related to the status of jailbreak for iOS 7.
However, despite their lack of success, jailbreakers and jailbreak developers are confident. It is good to know that the Evad3rs are hardly working on preparing a proper jailbreak tool for Apple’s latest version of firmware. It is worth mentioning the fact that the team is responsible for the public iOS 6 jailbreak, which hacked over 20 million devices.
