Problems after Jailbreak iOS7 *
Evad3rs hurried with the release of the jailbreak iOS 7 . As we wrote, the team wanted to get ahead of the famous hacker Geohot, who, as it turned out, was also preparing an exploit, and therefore released an earlier version of Evasi0n 7 . This has turned into problems for users. In some cases, after jailbreaking iOS 7, the iPhone and iPad hang on the Apple logo or other problems appear.
What should I do if the iPhone hangs on the Apple logo after iOS 7 jailbreak?
If after the iOS 7 jailbreak your gadget got into a cyclic reboot - an “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 is 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 any consequences to hack using Evasi0n 7.
According to users, the problem happens to those who are trying to jailbreak iOS 7 on devices updated through the OTA function (over the air). It is recommended to use Evasi0n 7 only after a “clean” installation of the OS.
So, what to do if your gadget on iOS 7 is stuck with the “apple” on the screen after the jailbreak:
- Connect your iPhone to your computer.
- Turn off the iPhone.
- Launch iTunes.
- Hold down the power button and the home button at the same time 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 the Restore button.
After flashing, restore all information to your device from your iTunes backup and jailbreak again. If you have not had time to use Evasi0n 7, you can download the program on this page . Detailed instructions for untethered iOS 7-7.0.4 jailbreak can be found here (for Windows) and here (Mac OS X).
In the jailbreak for iOS 7 found pirated App Store
A full jailbreak for iOS 7, released just yesterday, contains many more surprises than you can imagine. For example, the creator of the Cydia platform, Jay Freeman, known online as @saurik, did not know what version of his platform was being used in the evasi0n tool. But this is not all - it turns out that an alternative pirate app store is built into the jailbreak.
“Alternative App Store” contains cracked versions of real-life applications and games and is turned on only if the device is working in Chinese.
Informed jailbreak community sources link the appearance of a Chinese pirated app store to the fact that the Chinese company Taig.com, which moderates a pirated app store, provided great financial assistance to jailbreakers for their work on the iOS 7 hacking tool in exchange for such an unusual platform of pirated apps. The amount of financial assistance, according to rumors, was approximately 150 thousand dollars.
However, according to one of the creators of the jailbreak pod2g, all pirated applications from the "Chinese" App Store will be deleted. On the other hand, it is not clear what is the meaning of this alternative platform. It remains only to wait for how the pirate app store will develop.
[UPDATE 2] It appears that it is no longer installed by default on this particular jailbreak.
Dear Jailbreak Community,
We are deeply troubled by our rumors and specs surrounding our iOS 7 jailbreak. We would like to present you the whole story to you.
The Chinese app store Taig. We’ve approached the jailbreak of iOS 7, we’ve been approached for a jailbreak offer. Taig is a Chinese App Store written in Chinese. tailored and tailored 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 the jailbreaking.
Let us sell them. We have simply been able to keep track of the jailbreaks.
It has been given that it can be used. We are saddened by the accusations, or we sell weaponized exploits. If you’ve ever tried to find it. We have been compiled in Cydia for a separate file. Do you want to use it? It is simply that it was not intended to defile the law.
Preventing piracy is also extremely important to us. We are deeply sorry and embarrassed about it. All of us have spoken out vehemently against piracy in the past. We don’t get paid for their work. In our agreement with Taig, we are contractually in their store. This is an extremely important precondition of working with them. We would like to improve our situation. Many App Stores within China, including those issues by large corporations, have many issues with pirated software. Piracy with our jailbreak, we will, will help developers.
Piracy was found in the store. It is not acceptable to work. We are happy that it was not overlooked by the community. We didn’t see this. We are sorry. This will continue to occur. Taig will be pulled from the jailbreak if it cant be resolved.
It has been confirmed that I’ve been able to keep track of what I’ve been making. SaurikIT has been made a counteroffer. Jailbreaking might be in public. Unfortunately, the negotiations did not work out. A few days later, we’ve been a jailbreak ahead of us. We’ve been aware of the release of the MobileSubstrate and the jailbreak tiddariously for a few days.
Yes, we have a benefitted financially, including tweak developers, repo owners, etc. We would like to be compensated for it. However, it will be the most important thing to us. When releasing the jailbreak, we pledged all our donations to foundations supporting the interests of the community. We are deeply upset and we are focused on fixing it.
We love the jailbreak community and you motivate us to do this work. Having a choice and your device is important.
We hope you understand it.
