iOS 7 Jailbreak is Here!!

The evad3rs team has released the official iOS 7 jailbreak today compatible with all versions and devices running iOS 7 currently up to 7.0.4!

Click here to go to their website to download the jailbreak for yourself.

There have been some users who have reported issues with the jailbreak. The team has responded to these by recommending users to:

-update through iTunes if possible and not OTA(over the air updates, basically updating through your phone's settings without a computer)

-however, if you have updated through an OTA, it is recommended to backup through your computer then restore that backup and proceed with the jailbreak.

Doing otherwise could potentially brick your phone. However, if you have bricked your device, it is simple, according to other users, by going into the iPhone's recovery state. This can be done by rebooting the phone using the power and home button together until the phone turns on. Once the Apple logo appears, release only the power button while holding the home button still. This should bring up an icon that will require you to connect to iTunes and restore. Once this is done, you should be able to continue through with the jailbreak process.

I'm currently downloading and installing the update then will be doing the jailbreak so I have no way of confirming any of the information above yet. The evad3rs website (evasi0n.com) is legitimate so it's safe to say that this is real. Tech websites all over and on Twitter are confirming this jailbreak as well.

Update 12/22/2013: I can confirm that the new jailbreak provided at the link does, in fact, work. I did the jailbreak just as I described for you guys and it worked flawlessly without any issues. It did take a while though, like 30 minutes or so, but it worked.

I plugged in my iPhone to my (Microsoft Windows 7) computer
-ran iTunes
-backed up the iPhone
-updated it from iOS 7.0.3 to 7.0.4 through iTunes (I believe it backs itself up at this point again)
-closed iTunes
-(on Windows 7) clicked Ctrl + Shift + Esc
-opened "Processes" tab
-disabled ALL iTunes and Apple services (iTunes Helper, iTunes, etc.)
-opened the evasi0n ReadMe file
-read the instructions
-ran evasi0n.exe (Windows 7)
-plugged in iPhone (might be iPad or iPod for you)
-clicked run
-followed directions
Done. My iPhone was jailbroken, complete with Cydia.

Follow these instructions and you should have no issues. The process does take a while, so make sure you have some time on your hands before starting it.
