Evasi0n7 Jailbreak Includes a Chinese ‘Pirated’ App Store [WARNING]

Cracked app store ios 7

Jay Freeman a.k.a Saurik, the creator of Cydia jailbreak utility, has just confirmed via twitter that the Evasi0n7 iOS 7 jailbreak released earlier today by team @evad3rs, also includes a Chinese ‘pirated’ App Store, containing cracked versions of apps and games offered in the original App Store.

Apparently the cracked App Store only installs with Evasi0n7 jailbreak if the iOS device has its default language set to Chinese. What’s even worse is that according to some reputed members of the jailbreak community, the @evad3rs accepted a cash deal with a Chinese company namely Taig.com, to bundle the pirated App Store. @Chronic and @i0n1c have both confirmed on Twitter that Chinese companies were offering to pay 6 digit sums to them and other jailbreakers to include this illegal app.

While the @evad3rs have not officially responded to the allegation but @pod2g, the lead member of the team has said that any illegal software will immediately be removed from the jailbreak tool

Well, unless all this is sorted out and we officially get some kind of green signal from @Saurik himself, we strongly suggest every one to refrain from Evasi0n7.

    Think i’m going to stay away from this Jailbreak. Don’t see a need anymore.

    Something people may have missed. If you are not in China, nothing but Cydia is installed on your device. Taken from Pod2G twitter.

    This whole jailbreak just feels sketchy….and it looks like the jailbreak community (hackers and Devs) is divided…just have an overall bad feeling about this one.

    I have no problem with them taking a pay day, the Jailbreakers deserve it. It’s ultimately FREE for us users. Also, it installs only if you set it the language to ‘Chinese’. Even so, you can always just remove the ‘app store’ afterwards. It’s not like the majority of people in China aren’t going to install said pirate app store, or others like PP25 anyways. We all know China is the Piracy / Knock off capitol of the world.
