Evasi0n7 updated to version 1.0.1 for Mac and PC, removes controversial TaiG package

Evasi0n7 1.0.1 featured

The iOS 7 jailbreak tool, Evasi0n7, received its first update just a few moments ago for the Mac and PC. The update, which as billed as a 1.0.1 release, removes the primary source of the controversy surrounding Sunday’s release—the Chinese TaiG package.

Users were outraged when Evasi0n was found to include a bundled TaiG package, because TaiG has been closely associated with piracy, and piracy was easy to achieve “out of the box” with the install. Although your system has to be set to a primary Chinese language setting for the packages to appear as an option, many users still frowned upon its inclusion.

Also today, Geohot revealed that after a thorough inspection, the jailbreak was safe for users, and contained nothing malicious. Even with that revelation, Pod2g and the Evad3rs felt that a change had to be made, especially with the whole growing issue of piracy:

Pod2g goes on to state that users should expect more updates soon, specifically the compatibility issue with the iPad 2:

You can download Evasi0n7 version 1.0.1 from our downloads page. We’ll have more details on this decision reversal as they become available.

    • Chris

      You need to re-install MobileSubstrate then everything should start working, if you ever reboot your device you need to re-install it again. It’s a known issue which should be fixed once the 64bit ARM update is released

    It won’t even let me open the Evasion tool… I am running it on a Mac 10.6.8

    • Chris

      It’s a known issue, you will either need to wait until evasi0n is updated with a fix or updated to Mac OS X 10.7 or greater
