iOS 7 Jailbreak: New Update for Latest iOS7 Version; iOS 7.0.5 Supported

February 7, 2014 Updated: July 18, 2015

The iOS 7 jailbreak from Evad3rs has been updated to support the latest versions of iOS 7, which includes iOS 7.0.5.

They released the update on their website this week for the latest available version of Apple’s iOS 7.

A week ago, Apple released the new iOS 7.0.5 update for iPhones in China and Europe and it was unclear if the latest jailbreak worked. But according to reports, the latest version is said to work with the latest iOS.

It has also been reported that the iOS 7.0.5 update is likely the last update before iOS 7.1 comes out, which is expected to be released in February or March. 

According to Cult of Mac, U.S. iPhone users won’t get much out of the new iOS 7 jailbreak update. The new update deals mostly with bugs on Chinese carriers.

The jailbreaking software can be downloaded for Mac for Windows here.

The jailbreaking software has to be downloaded to your computer–via Mac and Windows PC, but not Linux yet. The iOS 7 device has to be connected to the computer via a USB cable.

The Evad3rs team has said that it is recommended to back up the data on your device on iCloud or iTunes. iTunes users are suggested to  encrypt the backup to speed up the process in case one has to restore the device in case of unforeseen problems.

The iOS 7 device passcode should also be disabled, as that prevents errors from occurring during the jailbreaking process.

Also, one should avoid doing iOS and iTunes tasks until the jailbreak is finished, Evad3rs recommends.

After one download the Evasi0n jailbreak, click on the Evasi0n icon after it’s finished, and then wait for the process to complete. The device will reboot several times during the process. If it gets stuck, it’s OK to restart the device and rebooting it before rerunning the process.

The jailbreak will install the Cydia program on the device. The software is “compatible with all iPhone, iPod touch, iPad and iPad mini models running iOS 7.0 through 7.0.4,” Evad3rs says

If an error message pops in OS X 10.8/10.9 saying Evasi0n can’t be opened, right click or control-click on the app. When the context menu that is revealed, hit “Open” and in the next dialogue box, again click “Open.”
