    I won’t be jailbreaking this time. I used to jailbreak for SBSettings. I never did the winter board thing. Anybody going to jailbreak – & why?

  • beavisaur

    sweet. the only real reason to jailbreak for me now is to get XBMC

  • Clay Eamer

    To make Chrome the default browser and Google Maps the default map program.

  • AZ

    Does Cydia actually work? Saurik says it was never tested or updated for iOS 7, in fact he didn’t even know about this jailbreak.

  • yep it does, and loads up really fast on 5S !

  • wstoneman


  • jfmartel

    Works great for 4S. I use it to have the date+time in the statusbar.

  • Gb

    Does XBMC still work with jailbreak iOS 7?

  • Trafford_66

    Downloading songs straight from groove shark again. Ahh

  • dudemaster

    Good point!

  • wstoneman

    I restored because it kept crashing but I think I will wait to do it again…

  • Allan Descheneau

    Is there a post here where I can learn why I would want to do this? I know there are some nefarious reasons, but if I was trying to keep everything above board, is there a reason?

  • Makool

    Can you unlock the phone with this to use it with another carrier or its just not supported yet?

  • wstoneman

    Iphoneincanada please update this post with a warning. This jailbreak potentially has malware in it. I would wait until Evad0rs explain whats going on.

  • beavisaur

    I just finished installing it. Seems to be perfectly fine.

    Also, five icon dock is another great reason for jailbreak.

  • Diogo

    how do you do it ??? Keeps on crashing here

  • Anon

    I am definitely going to. Stock iOS 7 still lacks the some important features. (Important to me, that is). Ability to change default browser and maps, Lock Info, Nitrous, Rotatable Icons, Blutooth File Sharing, 3G Unrestrictor, BiteSMS, ProTube, and iFile.

  • Nick

    Don’t do it. Cydia isn’t ready yet and it can’t install anything/do anything, even though you can browse it.. And it made my phone freeze and run unreliably.

  • Nick

    Also it showed up on iTunes with all it’s space that should have been free filled with ‘other’ (19gb of it) and music wouldn’t sync

  • werden

    any news of an unththered jailbreak for Apple tv 2 on 6.0 ?

  • Just Me

    so jailbreaking will allow me to use google maps as the default map within apps? what’s the bitesms and 3g unrestrictor? lock info, etc advantages? sorry…i am a noob, i havent jailbroken for a long time now.

  • Just Me

    Thanks Nick, saved me hassle. Would you be so kind to follow-up when Cydia is up and stable?

  • Nick

    Is that virus you used to have to use the terminal app to change your root password to prevent still an issue? And if so, is there a terminal app now compatible with the 5S?

  • Nafizur

    so, has the whole chinese maleware thing been resolved? can we jailbreak now?

  • Sammie

    I downloaded the app and used the jail breaker, my phone is frozen on the main screen, is that supposed to happen? If not how can I fix it?
