With the iOS 7 GM firmware released for developers, the whole attention has turned upon Apple. The Cupertino-based company has released the final built of its next firmware, and it is designed to fix old bugs and problems discovered within older iOS 7 beta versions.
The September 10 event for the press hosted at the Cupertino headquarters was far one of the most exciting development in the industry of the year. Apple unveiled two different handsets, the alleged budget iPhone 5c and iPhone 5S.
However, with all this attention surrounding the iOS 7, users cannot stop thinking about future jailbreak tool for the latest firmware. So far, multiple rumors have surrounded Apple’s firmware, and the possibility to create a jailbreak for it.
Unusually, these things can take up to a couple of months, or developers can bring up a jailbreak tool in a matter of days. It all depends on how hard Apple has protected and secured its firmware. The most probably is that users will have to wait until iOS 7.1 to will be released before an untethered jailbreak would be released.
The good news regarding Apple’s iOS 7 GM is the fact that certain members of the jailbreak community already found various exploits that can be used when building the iOS 7 jailbreak.
Planetbeing, a notable member of the Evaders team, has recently hinted that his team is looking into iOS 7 GM. For those who yet do not know, Apple has just released the iOS 7 GM version for developers earlier today.
In the same time, iOS 6 has been jailbroke using Evasion, the tool that jailbreaks all devices on firmware up to and including iOS 6.1.2. What is curious is the fact that iOS 6.1.4 was jailbroken by another developer called Winocm.
Nevertheless, the jailbreak world is busier than ever with the iOS 7 which brings multiple new improvements and features. Since the iOS 7 jailbreak will take a while, it is safe for those who want to test Apple’s latest firmware to upgrade their devices to the flattened version, as soon as it will be open for public.
For users who run previous versions of iOS or even the latest iOS 6.1.4 version available for public and want to keep their jailbreak status, do not upgrade to iOS 7, not until there is a confirmation from Evaders of Winocm that jailbreaking iOS 7 is possible and close.
