Update Your Jailbreak With the evasi0n 7.x Untether Package

Already jailbroken an iOS 7 device with evasi0n 1.0.0? Updating to the latest version of evasi0n used to mean re-jailbreaking the device from scratch with new software. Now, the evad3rs have released a Cydia package that makes it possible to update the jailbreak to the latest version without re-jailbreaking.

The evad3rs iOS 7 jailbreak has had a bit of a rocky launch. First there were rumors that someone close to the group had stolen the exploit and sold it to a private buyer, then soon after its release the jailbreak community accused the evad3rs of becoming greedy by partnering with the Chinese App Store TaiG.

The evad3rs quickly responded to all the rumors with a message posted on their website. In a letter addressed to the "Jailbreak Community," the evad3rs have made it clear that users were "not locked into TaiG" and could still install Cydia. The evad3rs also added that they had never shared their exploits with TaiG's owners, and that preventing piracy is extremely important to them. This all lead to pod2g announcing on Twitter today, that the evad3rs had decided to "remotely disable the default installation of TaiG in China for further investigations on the piracy issue."
