Evad3rs_iPhone_Skins_3_1024x1024

Between their jailbreak solutions for iOS 6 and iOS 7, the hacker collective known as Team Evad3rs has done a lot for OS X device owners.

Despite what they’ve done to help liberate people’s iOS devices, though, Team Evad3rs has asked for remarkably little back. With JailbreakCon coming up, then, why not support Team Evad3rs with these high-quality vinyl skins, courtesy of the folks at iCarbons?

Like other iCarbon skins, you can customize the official Evad3rs skin with different colors, right down to any element.

The official Evasi0n skin starts at just $13 from the iCarbon website: grab one now to show your support of jailbreaking!

Apple Thanks Jailbreakers For Tightening Up iOS 7.1 Security

Screen_Shot_2014-03-11_at_09

It’s a tale as old as time (and, perhaps, a song as old as rhyme): Apple releases a new version of iOS, hackers immediately get busy finding security vulnerabilities to exploit, eventually claw together a jailbreak, only for Apple to then find out about the flaws and fix them for the new iOS version.

Rinse and repeat.

Having released iOS 7.1, Apple has also released a list crediting the individual researchers and companies who helped spot security issues with the previous version of iOS — including jailbreak specialists Evad3rs, the team behind the iOS 6 and 7 jailbreaks.

Update Your iOS 7 Jailbreak Without Restoring Your Device With This Evad3rs Patch

Evais0n-7.x-Untether

When the iOS 7 jailbreak from Team Evad3rs was first released, it was buggy as all get-out, largely because it had been released without giving the larger jailbreak community any heads-up. Even Saurik, the keeper of the Cydia app store, wasn’t given warning… which means that when the iOS 7 jailbreak went live, MobileSubstrate — the mechanism through which jailbreak tweaks are installed — wasn’t updated for the 64-bit A7 chip, leaving many tweaks broken.

Team Evad3rs quickly updated their jailbreak to fix some bugs and give Saurik the hooks he needed to get MobileSubstrate working, but what if you already jailbroke? Well, you’re in luck: instead of restoring your device and jailbreaking it all over again, you can just download the Evasi0n 7.x untether package version 0.2 off Cydia.

Apple Credits Evad3r Hackers For Uncovering 4 Out Of 6 Exploits In Latest iOS Release

Screen Shot 2013-03-19 at 2.38.19 PM

For years Apple has been playing a game of cat and mouse with jailbreakers. Apple releases a new version of iOS, hackers get busy finding security vulnerabilities to exploit, a new jailbreak comes out utilizing those hard-earned exploits, and Apple fixes the security holes in a new iOS version. The cycle has been happening for years.

A team of hackers called the Evad3rs were responsible for the recent iOS 6 Evasi0n jailbreak, and Apple just released iOS 6.1.3 to patch the related security holes. Of the 6 exploits that were fixed, Apple has publicly credited 4 to the Evad3rs, all of which are chained together to give hackers root access to iOS.

phoenixweatherappfix

Get all your weather info back in a snap.

If you took the plunge and jailbroke your iPhone yesterday, you may have noticed that the Weather app in iOS doesn’t really work anymore. Like, at all. When you try to open the app on iPhone it just crashes, and then crashes some more.
