Well this is a great Christmas surprise. The iOS 7 jailbreak for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch was released early this morning by the evad3rs jailbreak team. The untethered jailbreak is available right now for Mac and Windows on the evasi0n website.
The requirements, as listed on the evasi0n website are as follows:
- 5 minutes of your time!
- A computer, running Windows (XP minimum), Mac OS X (10.6 minimum) or Linux (x86 / x86_64)
- iTunes installed if you’re running Windows
- An iPhone, iPad or iPod running iOS 7.0 through 7.0.4 (you may check in Settings / General / About => Version)
- A USB cable to connect the device to the computer
For those skeptical, this is in fact an official release as confirmed by many of the jailbreak’s main developers on Twitter:
