Problems after Jailbreak iOS7 *
Evad3rs hurried up with the release of jailbreak iOS 7 . As we wrote, the team wanted to get ahead of the well-known hacker Geohot, who, as it turned out, was also preparing an exploit, and therefore zareleizila early version of Evasi0n 7 . This turned out to be a problem for users. In some cases, after jailbreaking iOS 7, the iPhone and iPad hang on the Apple logo or other problems appear.
What to do if the iPhone "hangs" on the Apple logo after jailbreak iOS 7
If after jailbreaking iOS 7 your gadget got into a cyclic reboot - the "apple" hung on the screen, you can solve the problem as follows. First of all, you need to put the device into recovery mode. This is the only way to "revive" the device. Otherwise, you will not be able to use the iOS device.
After the iPhone or iPad was in recovery mode, you need to connect it to iTunes and restore the latest firmware. Installed "from scratch" iOS 7.0.4 can be guaranteed without hacking with the help of Evasi0n 7.
Judging by the users' reports, the problem happens for those who are trying to jailbreak iOS 7 on devices updated through the OTA function (by air). Use Evasi0n 7 is recommended only after a "clean" OS installation.
So, what to do if your gadget on iOS 7 is stuck with the "apple" on the screen after jailbreaking:
- Connect iPhone to your computer.
- Turn off the iPhone.
- Launch iTunes.
- Press the power button and the Home button simultaneously for 10 seconds.
- Release the power button, but keep holding the Home button until iTunes recognizes the device.
- Now restore iOS 7.0.4 using iTunes, by clicking on the Restore button.
After flashing, restore all information to the device from the backup copy of iTunes and repeat the jailbreak. If you have not already used Evasi0n 7, you can download the program on this page . Detailed instructions for unattached jailbreak iOS 7-7.0.4 can be found here (for Windows) and here (Mac OS X).
Jailbreak for iOS 7 found pirate App Store
A full-fledged jailbreak for iOS 7, released just yesterday, contains much more surprises than you can imagine. For example, the creator of the Cydia platform, Jay Freeman, known online as @saurik, knew nothing about what version of his platform is used in the tool from evasi0n. But that's not all - it turns out, an alternative pirated application store is built into jailbreak.
"Alternate App Store" contains the hacked versions of real applications and games and is included only if the device is running in Chinese.
The well-known sources from the jailbreak community link the appearance of the Chinese pirate applications store to the fact that the Chinese company Taig.com, which moderates the pirate application store, provided more financial assistance to jailbreakers for their work on the iOS 7 hacking tool in exchange for such an unusual platform of pirated applications. The amount of financial assistance, according to rumors, was about 150 thousand dollars.
However, according to one of the creators of jailbreak pod2g, all pirated applications from the "Chinese" App Store will be deleted. On the other hand, it is unclear what is the meaning of this alternative platform. It remains only to wait for the development of the pirate app store.
[UPDATE] Here's the official statement and some tweets from @saurik
[UPDATE 2] It appears that TaiG is no longer installed by default on this particular jailbreak.
Dear Jailbreak Community,
We are deeply troubled by the rumors and speculation surrounding our iOS 7 jailbreak. We would like to present the whole story to you.
Most of the concern Surroundings of the Chinese App Store Taig. In the course of the iOS 7 jailbreak, we were approached by the company in the Taig bundled with the jailbreak in China. Taig is a Chinese App Store written in Chinese. Tailored, we believe, well suited to meet the needs of users for the Chinese market. Users are not locked into Taig. Cydia can also be installed and Taig removed afterwards. It would be deeply hypocritical to remove a choice from the user in the course of jailbreaking.
Taig has never asked us to disclose our exploits to them, let alone sell them. We were simply asked to bundle their third-party app store in China in the similar way.
Of course, the security and security of our users is a paramount concern, and due to the amount of close scrutiny by security professionals around the world. We are saddened by the accusations that we will ever do such a thing, or sell weaponized exploits. If anyone ever attempted to include malware in a jailbreak, we are sure that the security experts were combing through jailbreak software would find it. The binaries are obfuscated for a similar reason to why we have in the past compiled in Cydia. We wish to secure the integrity of the jailbreak and discourage its use by the third parties who may in fact wish to weaponize it. The obfuscation is of course not intended to deflect serious analysis by security professionals (who have more to do with it).
Preventing piracy is also extremely important to us. We are deeply sorry and embarrassed about the piracy that was seen today. All of us have a deal out vehemently against piracy in the past. We donaâ € ™ t believe itâ € ™ s right for developers to not get paid for their work. In our agreement with Taig, we contractually bind them to not have piracy in their store. This was an extremely important precondition of working with them. In the agreement with them, we had hoped and continued to hope that our cooperation with Taig will improve the piracy situation in China. Many App Stores within China, including those run by large corporations, have many issues with pirated software. Promoting an app store that is required not to have piracy with our jailbreak, we believe, will help developers.
We are very upset that despite our agreement and review by their team, piracy was found in the store. It was not acceptable and they had been strenuously working to resolve the problem in good faith. We are happy that it was not overlooked by the community. Weâ € ™ ve been so heads down working on the code that we didnaâ € ™ t see this. We are sorry. We will continue to monitor this issue. Taig will be pulled from the jailbreak if it can not be resolved.
Many of you have also wondered why this jailbreak was released without Cydia and MobileSubstrate being updated for iOS 7. After we received the offer from Taig, we informed Saurik, our friend, of our decision to accept the offer. SaurikIT had been in talks with Chinese companies regarding potential partnerships, made a counteroffer. We believe they are in our community, currently using jailbreaking might. Unfortunately, the negotiations did not work out. A few days later, we received information that SaurikIT was working with another group to release a jailbreak ahead of us. We decided to release, knowing that Cydia, MobileSubstrate, and jailbreak tweaks would be updated after a few days, just as it always has in the course of jailbreaking.
Yes, we have benefitted financially from our work, just as many others in the jailbreak community have, including tweak developers, repo owners, etc. Any jailbreak from us will always be free to the users but we believe we have the right to be compensated in the ethical way. However, the interests of the community will always be the most important thing to us. When releasing the jailbreak, we pledged all of our donations to foundations. We are deeply upset at how we have inadvertently distressed the community and we are focused on fixing it.
We love the jailbreak community and you motivate us to do this work. Having a choice and freeing your device is important.
We hope you understand and we will thank you for all of your support.
