iOS 7 jailbroken well before it's necessary
posted by Michael H. / Jul 01, 2013, 11:32 AM
a new iOS 7 beta every two weeks, so holes could be patched very quickly, and we'll just go back and forth. On the other hand, if the exploits aren't exposed until iOS 7 is in full release, and there are more people who need/want the jailbreak, Apple's patch release cycle gets much slower.
Luckily, Ryan Petrich seems to understand that, so as yet, he has just posted pictures proving that iOS 7 can be jailbroken, but has not yet detailed the exploits used, or even released a jailbreaking tool yet. We'll have to wait and see how this unfolds, because if Petrich releases too soon, we could see some crazy back-and-forth between Apple and the mod community with iOS 7.

And where I was thinking that iOS would be near impossible to jailbreak. 3 of my family members just got iPhone 5s and all are running iOS 7 beta. I'll spread the good news to them. :)

Near impossible? Every 8 out of 10 iPhone users i know jailbroke their iPhone in order to install cracked apps and avoiding paying for stuff. They dont mind voided warranty. If you cant do it yourself, any phone shops with such services will gladly do it for you with a small fee. Cheapskate Malaysian mentality.

Why give Apple so much money of your head earned money. With limited functions which Apple gave there consumers saving them lots of patent fees to pay others they have pocketed the self. Apple made billions in repairs last year on crack screens. Yea the reason I own a ip5 is cause of free apps. I would never pay for apps to support apple. You must love the company who gives so less and takes lots instead. While Google Android gives for very less. And the same apps are free while apple charge you a dollar. Pathetic ®

Well said quakan. Why is it so hard for Troll, and others to just let people buy and enjoy what they want? I like iOS and I like android, therefore I own and ip5, and a note 2. This year I'll buy the ip5S, and note 3, and Craigslist the other two. Is that a crime, I ask?

Dude how many other companies phones had cracked screens last year. You make it sound as if only iPhones had them, and I'm not sticking up for apple. Mine has a cracked screen, after dropping about 15ft. Why do you not talk about the cracked screen on Nokia, Samsung, Moto, BB, HTC, and every other company. C'mon troll...really?

For me jailbreaking is very simple and easy and those Stores that jailbreak for you are charging RM50 for something that can be done for 5 minutes Personally i root and use customs roms on both of my android phones. but i like to keep my iPod touch/iPad a virgin , tried jailbreaking but i feel that performance is better off stock . I use Cyanogenmod(10.1) for my Galaxy s2 and MIUI for my Galaxy S1 tried iOS 7 beta still not as fluid , stable as iOS6

I agree about the prices. Just because the customers know nothing about jailbreaking, they can just charge them how ever they want. A friend of mine rooted his phone and paid RM30.. And I used to these kind of services in my campus for only RM2 :P

iOS 7 is still in the beginning stage and is extremely unstable, but I am hyped for the final version. Can't wait for jailbreak developers to unleash their creativity, my iPad is getting boring and needs a change.

They shouldn't have leaked that they jail broke it. That just gives apple the time to patch it. Need I remind people of the iOS 6.1.3 jail break "lock"? or that it took Envision a long time to find a jail break method? Leaking this is will just make it even harder in the future. ;/

He didn't release how he did it though. So apple doesn't know where the hole is, or what to patch. He just wanted some fame to show he found a way. Now, if he releases it, that would be a dumb move.
