How To Jailbreak iOS 7.0.6 Right Now

evasi0n7-7

After releasing iOS 7.0.6 yesterday with an important SSL bug fix, jailbreakers were put in a quandry. The bug that iOS 7.0.6 fixes a seriour security flaw that makes SSL/TLS sessions insecure, which puts your personal details in web transactions at risk of being stolen. On the other hand, is it really worth sacrificing your jailbreak for?

Luckily, it turns out that iOS 7.0.6 is still capable of being jailbroken using the existing Evasi0n jailbreak. Although Apple has patched out the Evasi0n jailbreaking exploit in iOS 7.1, iOS jailbreak dev winocm has said on Twitter that iOS 7.0.6 is still jailbreakable.

Of course, the existing Evasi0n jailbreak installer hasn’t yet been updated to support iOS 7.0.6, but if previous iOS 7.0.x updates are anything to go by, it won’t take long. In the meantime, if you want to jailbreak iOS 7.0.6 and don’t mind doing some hex editting, you can do so by following the instrucions here.

    Isn’t this an Apple forum? Why then do you continue to demonstrate jailbreaks using a windowz pc? Really? If this is how you operate, you have no credibility with the people who you say you write for. Fraud.

      It’s not fraud. Plenty of people with iPhones use a PC. I’m almost willing to bet that the number of iPhone owners who use PC instead of Mac is actually higher. The information in the article is solid, and completely credible.

Alienware I love my iphone but will not buy a Mac book there’s just so many better things out there than Apple to tell u the truth the only reason I bought an iphone, 4 years ago is that the only thing that anybody ever sold was iPhone accessories it was either iPhone this or iPhones that it was never HTC were Samsung or nothing.
