Untethered jailbreak for iOS 7 now available
An untethered jailbreak for iOS 7 has now been made available from evad3rs. The solution is a hack called evasi0n7 which will work on any Apple iPhone, Apple iPad, Apple iPad mini and Apple iPod touch running iOS 7.0 through iOS 7.0.4. This is good news for those with jailbroken iDevices that have been unable to update to iOS 7 for fear of losing their jailbreak.

The evasi0n7 hack is available for Windows and Mac OS X. Because this solution seemed to come out of leftfield, Cydia creator Jay Freeman (saurik) warns that he has yet to be able to prepare his Substrate code for the hack. He also tweeted that the version of Cydia that comes with evasi0n7 is not official and suggests that those interested in jailbreaking their iOS 7 device be patient while he checks things out.

If you're interested in opening up your iOS powered device to a whole new world, check out the tutorial below. We should caution you that you could end up bricking your expensive Apple device if you don't know what you're doing. Also, you will void your warranty if you attempt to jailbreak your device. As a result, only you can make the decision on whether or not to bust your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch out of jail.

Jailbreak is not necessary now because iOS 7 is almost perfect except for the bugs ...

Agreed, the features iOS 7 brought were much needed, much appreciated, and well liked. Mos def jedii approved. +1

How goes those locked bootloaders?

Not every single Android devices out there have locked bootloaders, unlike Apple, we have options. And we don't have to wait months for it to unlock.

You mentioned unlocked in your previous comment. Apple sells unlocked iPhones.

YOU mentioned locked bootloaders, I replied that there are Android phones out there WITHOUT locked bootloaders. What does Apple selling unlocked phones have anything to do with that?

If you can't distinguish what the difference is, STFU.

You know that and Unlocked Iphone is different than having a bootloader unlocked right? lol Unlocked as in "Can use with any simcard out of the box, not locked to a specific carrier/frequency". Unlocked bootloader as in the code that is executed before your OS starts to run. Its what tells the phone how to boot the OS and the kernel. EVERYTHING (xbox, ps1,2,3,4) has one, including your iphone. You've never seen your bootloader on there though. Most OS's don't give you the option to even see it.

Jailbreaked iPhone is Android outside the box.

Rooted Android is a PC outside the box.

Jailbreaking not irrelevant because iOS is perfect. It's irrelevant because Apple patches it so quick your basically stuck on that iOS version. It took 3 months for official iOS 7 to be jailbroken. Its going to take another 3 months for iOS 7.1 to get cracked. Apple is too smart to lose profits from cracked apps or alternate app stores.
Its not even worth getting excited about this.

Jailbreaking is not entirely about customizing. I can "spend" thousands and thousands and THOUSANDS of dollars (at the single tap of a finger, no searching or pirating on the desktop) on In App Purchases, expensive apps, and lots more, without having to specifically check if there is an availavle way to do it per specific app that I am trying to do it for. And by "spend", I mean aimlessly and pleasurably utilize the jailbroken devices potential at zero cost.

Everyone should jailbreak and get the apps for free, rather than paying it. Apple looses millions$, and Apple should pay Devs, instead of the public funding the Devs.

I will be jailbreaking mine and get all the apps free. I don't want to give my money to that bad company...

The only reason I haven't updated my iPad to iOS 7 is because I didn't want to lose my jailbreak. I have a ton of emulators, game hacks, XBMC, and the best thing of all... MovieBox!!! So yes, a jailbreak is necessary for me.

One of the positives of owning a iDevice over android is that you have the latest and greatest OS. Pretty much makes that irrelevant for you.

I would say iOS 7 is a more attractive Gingerbread Android Device.

I don't see how that is a benefit when the latest and greatest is still far less than a jailbroken + 2 versions old iOS.

Exactly, it's like who really cares? If you want an HTC device, just waltz into your local cell store, and get one. For the mature among us, these phones all do the same thing, make calls, send texts, emails, browse the web, and take great pics/vids. +1

Just look at Apple's history. This will be patched in no time. And when I had a jailbroken ipad the entire scene dried up. And the cycle repeats with the next iOS or iDevice release. Apple does not want anyone having control over the major parts of the OS especially if you have a fingerprint reader as part of the hardware. If people can steal Target's protected consumer information people will try to hack touchid.
