Planetbeing provides update on iOS 7 jailbreak status

By , Sep 11, 2013

iOS 7 brown

Yesterday, the Evad3rs’ @planetbeing said that the team behind the Evasi0n jailbreak for iOS 6 was starting some initial investigation into the possibility of an iOS 7 jailbreak. It doesn’t look like they plan on wasting much time in the process.

In an update provided via Twitter, planetbeing states that he’s achieved unsigned userland code execution using some of the stuff the team has held in reserve. As mentioned yesterday, the Evad3rs are now on a reconnaissance mission to see what exploits still work with iOS 7.

Planetbeing’s latest update:

Obviously these are just the first initial steps necessary to achieve the ultimate end goal, but as I stated yesterday, it’s very encouraging to see such a proven group of hackers focused in on the next big thing.

Just think about how happy you’ll be when you can ditch the icons customize your iOS 7 device. Stay patient my friends.

    These guys rock!

    Keep it up evad3rs!

      When is winocm going to release his untethered jailbreak for 6.1.3?What is he waiting for? After release of ios 7 there will be less user to use that jailbreak….. Is there any reason behind…..

      • Tom

        Grrrrrrr. Whenever any devs get close to releasing a jailbreak, there are always people saying ‘Why don’t they release it. What’s the hold-up’.

        THEY HAVEN’T RELEASED IT BECAUSE IT ISN’T F**KING READY YET!

        The devs don’t hold on to jailbreaks just to annoy people. They need to test it. A lot. Imagine if they released it without enough testing and it bricked your phone. I bet you would be even more annoyed then. It will come out when it is ready. Not before. This is a good thing.

      • Mysticpoisen

        Also they did want to wait until after ios 7 to make/release a jailbreak for 6.1.3, simply because it wasn’t worth it, 6.1.3 wasn’t going to be out all that long until ios 7 was released, so they didn’t want to waste a reserved exploit on a short term version only to be patched up in ios 7. I am not sure if they even will release a jailbreak for 6.1.3, or just tell people to update to ios 7 to jailbreak.

      • Wong King Hui

        There won’t b any jailbreak for 6.1.3….

  • KiKO4LiFE

    Hell yeah, bring it on

  • Anthony Petell

    Absolutely love them going directly to work and all for free. These guys are some of the most skilled iOS hackers in the world. But I’m sure all involved with the jailbreaking community already know that. Thanks Evad3rs in advance. We know you’ll hack anything that Apple throws.

    • Anthony Petell

      I saw an interview where PlanetBeing got the android running on an iPhone. Said he basically didn’t have any life for a while. Just to think how much work went into that. WOW

      • Danuel Carr

        Yeah these guys are fantastic.

      • Rowan09

        Do you know what type of iPhone? I had Android running on a 3G in past but it wasn’t full Android OS.

      • Jeffrey Feuerstein
    • diggitydang

      For free, but remember to donate to these guys too, if you can. Since we can’t do this stuff ourselves, we want to show our appreciation for the hard work they put in!

      Wonder if they’ll be able to do the 5S with the other models at the same time. Does the 64-bit thing put a wrench in things? Hmmmmm…

  • Gus Me

    Nice, maybe we can have it in time for Christmas…

    • Tul Kasetrsuwan

      Would totally be a great Christmas gift for me!

  • TesticularFortitude

    I don’t want to ditch the icons… I actually like them.

    • Lance Baker

      I like them as well. Nothing wrong with a little color.

    • Matt Taylor

      It’s the blue UI icons I don’t like, especially the ones in safari! You would think said icons colors would match each app. They are so ugly and the first thing I will be replacing! And on the bottom of the share menu, the icons for copy and print etc. Not good!

      • TesticularFortitude

        Cool… Looks great to me.

    • xOs

      Yeah gotta love blinding fluorescence and artwork by 3 year olds. Divine.

      • TesticularFortitude

        Love it!!

    • Jonathan

      I agree. I almost don’t need to jailbreak.

      • Mr. E

        “Almost” keyword there ;P

      • Jonathan

        Glad you caught that. I thought of mentioning it a couple spaces down.

    • Kamrul

      They certainly look better when you look at them in person.

  • Andy

    I wonder if some existing tweaks (like Nitrous, or ProTube extension for YouTube) work with iOS 7 or would they all need to be updated to add compatibility for the new iOS?

    • Matthew Cooper

      Usually when there is a jump from one major update to another say IOS 6 to IOS 7 then yes most things wont be fully compatible. Sometimes developers even ditch there tweaks instead of trying to mess with the new code

    • bashir

      Use “Protuber” is free in the appstore, Downloads 240-1080p youtube videos with resume capability

  • Willie

    Looking forward to see Cydia on a totally new iOS!!

    • rasengan720 .

      Since there are some changes in the ui.. I’m sure it’s time for a Cydia redesign.. Correct me if I’m wrong here :P

      • Willie

        I think it’s possible that the design can remain the same. But seriously… we all secretly want a new facelift for Cydia

      • Mysticpoisen

        Well they did change a general appearance of cydia, the design is pretty much the same, just that the buttons have a flatter look to em, to go with the look of iOS 7

  • Andrew Roth

    Just out of curiosity, how can you “ditch the icons customize your iOS 7 device” when Winterboard won’t work? Just saying…

    • Filip Langer

      You can just replace the .png files with your own xP

      • http://www.ideaprison.com/ ideaprison

        It still be nice if someone stepped in and made a tweak so that process becomes easier, just like how Winterboard themes work.

    • Rowan09

      Winter board not working was an old post, if you check on earlier reports Saurik himself confirmed that winter board should work. The statement he made about it not working was due to not having support from theme makers which he now has.

      • Andrew Roth

        Oh. I didn’t realize somebody is helping him after all. That’s good.

  • rasengan720 .

    So… It begins!!

  • Roboter

    We also need a Cydia revamp for iOS 7?! :D Would be nice on my opinion.

    • Jonathan

      Time for some design suggestions..

  • Aden

    Y is my phone kept restating itself when I used the iOS 6 evasion jailbreak others didn’t got it only i did

    • rasengan720 .

      Did you try restoring ios and rejailbreaking?

  • felixtaf

    iOS 7 + Jailbreak = Pure Awesomeness!!!

    • rasengan720 .

      Hope the ios 7 jail broken phones don’t explode in its epicness!! :D

      • Question

        Hahahahahahahaha!!!!

  • Pedro

    Yea and so again there will be a new jailbreak tool needed to be made from scratch and when iOS settles down on some last minor release jailbreak wont work and hackers wont be arsed (not wanting some other exploits to burn while iOS 8 will get new exploit set anyway). History repeats :|

  • Tim Driessen

    Ditch the icons – Your damn right I will ditch the icons.

  • omrishtam

    here we go again….

  • Qasim Bashir

    can anyone answer this please? i installed iOS 7 GM on my iPhone, What will happen when its publicly released ? will i have to update normally to that or restore in itunes? or will i run in any trouble??????

    • Gerardo Castro

      Usually its the same build that gets released publicly (that’s been the case these past 2 years) so you wouldn’t have to do anything UNLESS Apple major bugs that rear their ugly heads

      • Jake1047s

        The GM will expire so you will have to do a full restore in iTunes

      • Gerardo Castro

        I read there is no expiration date on this GM.

  • James Brown

    can’t wait quick reply on iOS 7!!!! and other tweaks as well!!!!

  • rosssimpson

    Fantastic news! Keep it up :)

  • Matt Taylor

    No Winterboard will mean manual theming though, which is cool with me as I haven’t used Winterboard in like two years. I just hope there’s an artwork extractor that will extract the new shared artwork (or similar) files found in iOS7!

    • Juan Herrera

      We will have Winterboard though. Saurik thought Winterboard would die out but only because he wasn’t receiving assistance with its inner workings from the theme makers. Since that ” call to arms “, he has received a crap load of assistance with it and he believes the future of Winterboard now looks very bright

      • Matt Taylor

        Oh right. I didn’t know that, my news is obviously outdated lol. My bad!

  • theogbobby

    SURRRRENIIIIIX!!!

  • Tony Trenkle Jr.

    I agree, this is awesome! The tweak I’ll miss the most is Phantom for Snapchat. lol I’ll let you guys do the research on that one.

  • El Barto

    iOS 7 + Jailbreak = BEST IPHONE EXPERIENCE EVER.

    • Mark

      iPhone 5S + iOS 7 + Jailbreak = Is indeed the best of the best iPhone experience. :D

  • MrShutEmDown

    I wonder if they’ll start charging for their work. Because I have a feeling some sort of monetary incentive would get things done faster. But as long as it’s free, we’re at their mercy and it’ll take “as long as it needs to”. Either way.. doesnt matter to me.

  • http://lucaskunert.com/ Lucas Kunert

    This is awesome news. Good idea they held onto these possible exploits for code execution use instead of wasting on a 6.1.3+ jailbreak.

  • Joseph liong

    Can’t wait..

  • Guest

    Not a developer but thanks to the ones that put the links out there, I was able to update my 4s to the GM ios7 last night and it works like a charm.

    • Leviscus Tempris

      I’m trying to find a link but haven’t been lucky and trying to find it has been rough. I also only have ten min at a day to look. Could you help me? iPhone 5 here. Thank you. ;)

  • Stefano

    Hahaha ditch the icons

  • diggitydang

    I wonder how many (how little?) tweaks will work in iOS7 though… I’m expecting that once the jailbreak launches, tweaks will take awhile to configure to the new OS. I don’t know much about this stuff though, so I might be completely wrong… I hope I am!!

    • Mark

      Almost nothing.. cause iOS 7 is a new/refined OS, though some apps/tweaks will probably work with few adjustments, this may vary on how long (how often) or how active our respective devs to update their tweaks.

  • Casey H.

    The tweet sounds like something from Tommy Boy. “Checking the specs from the rotary girter”

  • http://louieyabut.tumblr.com/ Louie Yabut

    Haha ditch the icons. I can’t wait.

  • Markus Hudobnik

    I can’t wait for all the iOS 7 inspired tweaks. :)

    and PLEASE a redesigned Cydia store. :)

  • Msxy

    you work hard, thanks :)

  • arbnor.j

    c’mon guys it dont seem as a conspirancy during years always after a new iphone they came and say jailbreak is ready go and buy the new iphone we are ready and then they end for 8 months till the release of a jailbreak , this hackers work for apple they are not such a idiots to work for free hours and hours nobody is that crazy… especially americans .
    its bussines guys its bussines
    Apple should give more moneys for this ad’s they make out :p
    Apple will never stop jailbreak as long as sells are way to good for a same iphone they presented a year ago.-
    C’mon guys dislike this :p
    Truth hurts and you know that very well…

  • Jonathan Foell ™

    Hell yes things are looking bright!

  • iCrunch

    Nice!!!

  • bene

    Is it true that winterboard wont be available in ios7 as saurik said?

  • Elias Chao

    iOS 7 + Activator + Altkeyboard + CleverPin + iCaughtYou Pro + Zephyr = The perfect iPhone for me :)

  • Dalila Sampson

    you can already jailbreak iOS 7 untethered. It works for everything else.
    It’s pretty cool, you jailbreak straight from your phone.

    • Elias Chao

      OMG! I saw how this post get all this likes in less than a second.

      • ClaudieX X

        so someone already used the 7jailbreak ??? why nobody is going crazy

    • sally

      AWESOME!

    • http://173.58.214.169/ That’s what Siri said!!!

      Scam. Didn’t work and broke my iPod :(

      • ClaudieX X

        Expand broke…

  • biobot

    Excellent work. These true hackers r great.

  • http://173.58.214.169/ That’s what Siri said!!!

    I’ll ditch the icons and get battery percentage on my iPod touch. It will be x-citing when the jailbreak comes out!

  • iwanttohack

    When is winocm going to release his untethered jailbreak for 6.1.3? What is he waiting for? After release of ios 7 there will be less user to use that jailbreak….. Is there any reason behind……

  • http://socialspit.com/ XweAponX

    Excellent – There is a lot of weight on this guy, I give him my full support!

  • Panha Meth

    Yeah these guys are fantastic.

  • John Hawkins

    When is iOS 7 coming out for the other devices besides the iPhone?

  • Ramleerahman

    c’mon eva3er…cant wait!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Damian Lillard

    Heck yes, I am ALL about the jailbreak. And this news definitely makes me happy.

  • James L Morris

    Can’t wait! IOS7 was a bit of a let down for me. It pains me to say this but when you think about it Apple is no longer the lead dog. Sure, they have fingerprint scanning. Compare the iPhone 5s to the Galaxy S4 or Note 3 and it looks like they are just trying to catch up to what has already been an industry standard.

  • Wong King Hui

    Without JB on apple’s phones, ther’s just nothing much 2 play around with as all these apps at apple store r jus so static n boring…!!!!! Gbu evad3rs..!!! Roll out OS7 jb soon… :-)

  • linabun387@yahoo.com

    day na ban jailbreak iOS 7.0.3 ban
