iOS 7 Jailbreak Is Out, But Proceed At Your Own Risk

This is certainly a nice holiday treat. The weekend before Christmas, the Evad3rs team unveiled an untethered Jailbreak for devices running iOS 7 and up, and there’s a step-by-step guide to go along with it. You ought to back your device up before attempting to modify it—but you knew that. Even with Apple adding some much-needed functionality to iOS 7, the flexibility and creativity of the back alley community is still very much alive and well.

The Jailbreak supports both Mac and PC, and should work on any device capable of running iOS 7 (up to iOS 7.0.4). There’s an inherent risk when modifying your device, even if you follow the steps down to the T, so proceed with caution. If you’re unclear whether or not your iPhone will support the Jailbreak, the team released a full list, which includes the latest iPhone 5s all the way down to the iPad 2.

As noted by CultOfMac, there are plenty of users reporting that the Jailbreak is plagued by issues. If you’re concerned with the sanity of your device, you should definitely hold out until all the bugs have been ironed out. Pod2g said on his Twitter that the team is aware of the issues, and is working quickly to release a fix.
