iOS 7 Jailbreak Evasi0n tool

A jailbreak for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch running iOS 7 has been released by the “evad3rs” group, titled Evasi0n7. The jailbreak is untethered, meaning it the device can be rebooted freely without computer assistance at any time, and is compatible with all devices running iOS 7.0, 7.0.1, 7.0.2, 7.0.3, 7.0.4, and the two current iOS 7.1 betas.

For the less familiar, Jailbreaking uses exploits to skirt around the limitations imposed by Apple on iPhone and iPad software. A successful jailbreak provides root access to the device, which then allows various modifications to be installed atop of iOS, and also provides the ability to install third party software that has not gone through the sanctioning process of Apple and the App Store. Jailbreaks are not without controversy, can lead to a buggier software experience, and they are generally recommended only for more advanced users who have a specific reason to perform the jailbreak. A jailbreak is not the same as a carrier unlock and will not provide the ability to use a iPhone on another cellular carrier. The average iPhone or iPad user has little reason to jailbreak and will probably not benefit from the process. We do not recommend jailbreaking, this is provided for informational purposes.

Evasi0n 7 supports jailbreaking iOS 7.0 through 7.0.4 on the following hardware: iPhone 5S, iPhone 5C, iPhone 5, iPhone 4S, iPhone 4, iPad Air, iPad 4, iPad 3, iPad 2, iPad Mini, Retina iPad Mini, and iPod Touch 5th gen.

Download Evasi0n Jailbreak for iOS 7

The evasion app is a free download for Mac OS X and Windows, hosted on third party servers:

Back up any iOS device before attempting to use the evasi0n tool. Using the jailbreak utility is fairly easy, but we will provide specific walkthroughs shortly to assist curious users who are new to the process. All jailbreaks can be undone by restoring iOS software assuming a backup was made prior to installation.

Again, the average casual user will likely not benefit from using a jailbreak, they may experience crashing and other peculiar behavior after installing it. Accordingly, such a task is only recommended for advanced iOS users.
