Unofficial modified version of Evasi0n7 can jailbreak iOS 7.1 beta 3

By , Jan 7, 2014

iOS 7.1 beta 3

A modified version of the Evasi0n7 jailbreak tool began making its rounds around the internet this afternoon. This unofficial version of Evasi0n7 was created in order to jailbreak the just released iOS 7.1 beta 3.

One of the first things I tried when iOS 7.1 beta 3 dropped was run the latest official version of Evasi0n7. I was quickly (and unsurprisingly I might add) met with an error message stating: Sorry, the version of iOS (11D5127c) of the attached device is not supported.

You can probably tell where this post is going. Indeed, I decided to take the plunge and see if the “unofficial” version of Evasi0n7 could legitimately jailbreak iOS 7.1 beta 3. After about 15 minutes of testing, I can state that the answer to that question is yes.

Although we definitely can’t, and frankly don’t recommend that anyone use an unofficial version of the Evasi0n jailbreak tool, we aren’t naive, and we know that many are going to simply do it anyway. For that reason, we felt it might be beneficial to verify whether or not the tool works. Have a look inside for the proof.

Again, this modified version hasn’t been sanctioned by the Evad3rs and we cannot vouch for its safety. If in doubt, it may be wise not to use this tool

You can download the unofficial version of Evasi0n7 for iOS 7.1 beta 3 from our downloads page.

If you decide to jailbreak iOS 7.1 beta 3, let us know any observations you make in the comment section below.

        Can you upload the new icons when you do please? :-)

      • Steven Code

        Is that how you life your life? :p I’m tempted…I’m gonna do it Lol

    • Arthur Geron

      There is a way to get out of beta without having to wait, just put it in special DFU and restore it.
      For the ones without any dev account, connect your iphone to itunes, hold alt or shift(I don’t remember) and click check for updates, then select the IPSW of that beta.. Bam, it will restore and when it finishes it will be already activated. Cheers

      • Ellek

        Also, I did an alt+click on “check for update” and clicked the .ipsw file of which I downloaded from the iOS dev centre. It worked fine. I had all of my data from the 7.1 beta update successfully on 7.0.4

      • Sandile Simelane

        Please help… I bought an iPhone 5 (working fine) on an auction. I updated it to iOS 7.0.4 on the next day and it want an iCloud ID (of which I don’t know). I was wondering if iOS 7.1 comes already activated? Please help

      • Arthur Geron

        Well, you have 2 options, contact the seller, try jailbreaking it and see if it activates something. That activation protection came with iOS 7 so it won’t work if you dont have the info from the last user of that iphone.

  • Ben

    I have a dev acc but I would rather be on 7.0.4.

    • Andrea Anderson

      can u add my device to ur account? i’d like to get the beta email candyDY AT ME . COM

      • Jacques Hragar

        Not asking for much from a random stranger are you?

      • Ben

        Heck no. I’m not allowed to distribute betas nor would I activate a strangers UDID.

      • Y2J

        People are always looking for handouts… SMH

        lmao i was almost wanted to say something rude but … i won’t

        All hail, the Ayatollah, of Rock, and, Rollah!

  • Joe Benning

    Is this for Mac only? In quotations on the download page the ‘unofficial’ is only labeled next to Mac.

    • GuiyeC

      It is Mac only, maybe Evad3rs will officially update theirs.
      They shouldn’t have to though, it’s a pretty good assumption that if you have a developer account you have a Mac.

      Anyway, good luck Windows users!

  • Dallas Groot

    Why oh why would you encourage people with this….. first off, you don’t know if this is a safe tool or not… (probably is…) but still… second, this is beta software, and allot of people will be stuck on this once the GM of 7.1 is released, and will be asking questions on how to downgrade back to 7.0.4 when it is set to expire…

    • http://www.iDownloadBlog.com Sebastien

      We don’t encourage anyone. Actually, if you read the post again, you’ll see that we *discourage* people to use it.

      But, we’ve been asked 100 times about this tool since it came out earlier today. We’d rather tell you that it works but you shouldn’t use it, rather than not say anything and have you try it on your own. Obviously, I don’t mean “you” personally. I’m talking about the majority of people who are wondering if this tool is legit.

    • http://R0Fleming.tumblr.com/ Romanel Fleming

      iDownloadBlog and its members did NOT encourage people with this. They discouraged it. Just like with any other jailbreak, it is per the user’s discretion. Maybe it would help to read the article in its entirety, before making a false accusation.

    • Arthur Geron

      Plus if I’m not wrong, there is a way to get out of beta without having to wait, just put it in special DFU and restore it.
      For the ones without any dev account, connect your iphone to itunes, hold alt or shift(I don’t remember) and click check for updates, then select the IPSW of that beta.. Bam, it will restore and when it finishes it will be already activated. Cheers

      • InfinitePlusOne

        Stop commenting same thing every place

      • Arthur Geron

        I’m trying to help, I didn’t post it everywhere, just under two comments which had something to do with what I wrote. Sorry if that’s too much for you to handle, but I don’t care if that bother some abnoxious ppl, It helps more than it troubles, that if it troubles anyone at all..

    • Huntz

      Did you even read the article?

  • El Arqui Tecto

    Apple will fix it when they the finally release GM

    • http://R0Fleming.tumblr.com/ Romanel Fleming

      Shhhh, let us remain faithful…

    • Jonathan

      Fail :D

      • Andrea Anderson

        NO WAY

      • Jonathan

        Way.

  • Bob

    who’d want to do that though.

  • illK†Δ

    You are crazy if you want to update your iOS just because of a couple of new ui tweaks and parallax features. I’m sure by next month this will already be a tweak on cydia

    • TDD140

      You would be surprised. 7.1 beta is a nice speed improvement over 7.0.4, almost matching the speed of iOS 6.1-6.1.5

    • Shawn

      You must understand that iOS 7.1 is much more than just GUI improvements.

  • Diras BuZz

    When ios 6.1.3 A5 tablet can jailbreak?

    • Jonathan

      ih8sn0w already released it….. go to iDB’s download page..

  • Diras BuZz

    Let me know when ios 6.1.3 A5 release???

    • InfinitePlusOne

      Why don’t you just update to iOS 7…?

      • Diras BuZz

        I don’t know why i can’t update to ios 7 ,,, with iTunes

  • Sumit Agnihotri

    when i m trying to open a unofficial Evasi0n app then msg are coming file is damage move to trash so i remove security after that app not able to open even double click ….so wht should i do nw ..

  • Hunter Green

    Once the beta expires you’re screwed…

    • James Fazio

      Not if you remove the expiration.

      • Hunter Green

        Via Cydia? Didn’t know that was possible…

      • James Fazio

        Using iFile to edit SystemVersion.plist

      • Hunter Green

        Thanks! I think I will stick with my already-jailbroken 7.0.4. All the betas this summer were exhausting!

      • neogomo

        Seems it doesn’t really work. Had to reset the date on my iPad mini via SSH to get it activated again, but as soon as it has the current time again, it somehow knows that it is ought to be expired – regardless of changing the .plist :(

  • James Fazio

    Anyone else getting a boot loop? I’ve tried 3 times on iPad Air.

    • Shawn

      It did boot loops on my 5s with 7.1 B2 while trying to JB.

      • James Fazio

        That happened on my 5S on beta 2, but it eventually comes out of it on each boot. My iPad has been in a boot loop for a half an hour now.

      • Shawn

        Mine did that too where it came out eventually. Didn’t wanna deal with it though

      • James Fazio

        I’ve stuck with it, only happens sometimes.

  • Shawn

    I love the new buttons. They look nice and function great.

  • Y2J

    Is there a way to bypass the activation screen? I’m about to update my old 4, and would like to know ahead of time. Also, will I even be stuck at the activation screen?

    Thanks

    • Walden Schmidt

      Their is an activation. Even Over the air update has an activation. just pay like $7 and register your UDID. You won’t be able to bypass. You have to be on someones developer account

    • Walden Schmidt

      you could try to download the beta software. Then go to iTunes, hold shift on windows or option on the mac and click check for update. This will bring you to your files and you choose the beta file you downloaded and it will update. Not sure if this still works. It did as of the iOS 7 betas

      • Y2J

        That’s what I did with 6 and 7, but people are saying that Apple patched it. With 7, I was able to just go through the activation like normal with no problems. I’ll try it, and if it doesn’t work, I’ll try registering it. Thanks

      • Walden Schmidt

        Its no problem. Anything to help another person out

    • Moises Espinoza

      If you mean the sim activation screen then yes but only on the iphone 4. Google temp solution to hacktivate ios 7. Did It to my old 4 as well

  • Walden Schmidt

    My iPhone 5 is not booting. It just shows the apple symbol. Anybody have any suggestions? Do I wait because this is the second time i have tried.

    • James Fazio

      Same thing on my iPad. Does the Apple disappear and come back every 10 seconds or so?

      • Walden Schmidt

        no mine is just staying there. Its almost like its frozen

      • James Fazio

        That’s weird. Maybe try again?

      • Walden Schmidt

        This is actually the second time I’ve tried with the same result.

      • James Fazio

        I think we should wait for the next update to evasi0n then.

      • Walden Schmidt

        I don’t think they are going to update it because the final version isn’t coming out till march and thats a couple months away from iOS 8

    • ɑղժɾҽա

      I guess it’s time for you to go into DFU mode and restore.

      • Walden Schmidt

        Yup doing that now

    • Y2J

      Did you update OTA? I did with my 5 to go to 7.0.4, and it was just like that. If so, I’d put it in DFU, and go to iTunes and restore, then try again.

      • Walden Schmidt

        no I updated it then tried to use this modified jailbreak. Needless to say, it doesn’t work…at least for my 5

      • Walden Schmidt

        Do you mean did I update to beta 3 over the air before trying the jailbreak? if so then yes I did

      • James Fazio

        That’s why your phone won’t boot! evasi0n doesn’t support OTA yet. It should would with a fresh install of beta 3.

      • Walden Schmidt

        Do you know where I can get the torrent link from? Im on a friends developer account so I need the actual downloads

      • Y2J

        Try this:

        http://www.ios-hacks DOT com/2014/01/direct-torrent-download-links-ios-71-beta-3-for-iphone-ipod-ipad.html

        Now, for some reason, when I downloaded the iPhone 4 GSM file, it is a . dmg and not .ipws. Anybody no why that is?

      • James Fazio

        It’s similar to a .zip that Macs can only open. If you’re on Windows you can simply change it to .ipsw. Open it if you’re on a Mac.

      • Y2J

        Oh okay, thanks. I’m on Windows so I wasn’t sure.

      • Y2J

        Is that you in the picture?

      • James Fazio

        Yup

      • Y2J

        Oh cool. You in collage or the miners or something?

      • James Fazio

        Haha no. High school. We have a Single A team in our city, and our Varsity team plays home games at their stadium.

      • Y2J

        Ohhh, that’s cool haha. Y’all got nice unis lol. I’m in high school too and our’s suck

      • James Fazio

        They’re nice, but we had to buy them.

      • Y2J

        Ahhh, that’s why. Alright, well I’m going to sleep, but best of luck to ya

      • James Fazio

        Same to you.

      • F*** dan

        Use a different browser

      • Y2J

        Yeah I did. That’s why it’s not working (probably.) Try restoring through a computer to beta 3, then do the jailbreak.

    • EllipticSet

      Because you download beta 3 via software update directly on the device.
      You have to restore the iPhone with beta 3 from iTunes

  • Walden Schmidt

    Anybody know what would happen if I jailbreak 7.1 beta 2 then update OTA. Will I lose the jailbreak

    • James Fazio

      Yeah, unfortunately, you will.

      • Walden Schmidt

        Damn

  • ɑղժɾҽա

    The new incoming call screen really does look nice!

    • Walden Schmidt

      One reason that I want to be able to jailbreak 7.1 b3. It sucks that my phone won’t boot

      • ɑղժɾҽա

        What do you mean that you phone won’t boot? What did you do to it?

      • Walden Schmidt

        I tried to use the modified evasion7 jailbreak on this page. Now my phone is stuck on the apple logo… guess it doesn’t work

      • ɑղժɾҽա

        Oh wow. Thanks for telling me this! I’m not going to attempt to jailbreak iOS 7.1 beta 3 until an official Evasi0n update is released then. Right now the new UI tweaks are keeping me entertained and busy. I think this build is faster than beta 2 as well.

      • Walden Schmidt

        yea same. I was entertained but I thought it would be cool to have barrel and swipey in addition to the new tweaks. Honestly, Im just worried the evaders won’t update it for the iOS betas or at all until they work on jailbreaking iOS 8

      • Y2J

        They will, because it wasn’t patched. It’s just not supported (similar to how tweaks are not supported with iOS 7.) Once it’s patched, though, then they won’t be updating at all until iOS 8.

      • Walden Schmidt

        Hopefully they do soon. I’d love to have swipey, barrel and bitesms with beta 3

      • James Fazio

        Yeah, they probably will.

      • ɑղժɾҽա

        I didn’t have many jailbreak tweaks on mine since most tweaks don’t yet support A7 devices. I couldn’t even use the really cool tweak called “BioProtect” because i was on 7.1. I can’t really downgrade to 7.0.4 because my backup data is on a newer version of iOS. It’s not much of a loss for me though. :)

      • James Fazio

        BioProtect works on 7.1b2. I’ve got it installed now.

      • ɑղժɾҽա

        WHAT?!!! The developer must have updated the tweak to be compatible with 7.1 when I removed my jailbreak today. :(

      • James Fazio

        Yeah he updated it the other day. Version 0.1-460, I believe.

      • Walden Schmidt

        I know it was updated before today. I installed it for my brother and he has the 5s. He’s had the tweak for a couple days now

      • ɑղժɾҽա

        BioProtect does not work on my iPhone running iOS 7.1 beta 3. How did you get yours to work?

      • James Fazio

        I don’t know, it just works. I’m on beta 3 now, too.

      • ɑղժɾҽա

        Did you purchase that package or use a repo?

      • James Fazio

        Bought it.

      • ɑղժɾҽա

        Can you prove that it works by making a video or something similar? I want to know that it works before I buy it. I hear that it’s not working for many users on iOS 7.1.

      • James Fazio

        You have to keep installing then uninstalling and it will eventually work. I deleted it due to battery drain, so I can’t make a video.

      • James Fazio

        Bought it.

      • Walden Schmidt

        same here. I can deal with it. Hopefully they update evasion7

  • Jimothy

    Remember people: this version of iOS will stop working eventually. It does expire. It expires February 10th at 12AM.

    • Mhmd Bassam Nasyr

      it can be modified

      • Jimothy

        It can be; but does the average user know how to?

      • Mhmd Bassam Nasyr

        very easy with ifile, just google or go to youtube

    • David Villamizar

      Sorry dude, you expect that since people who develop for iOS have it really easy to create tools for OS X. If you put it that way, you should be grateful they even care about making a Windows version “soon”.

      Hm. more shouting. I’ll just keep scrolling..

  • Y2J

    I know that everyone here is against pirating, and so am I, I just need to test Apple’s Numbers app to see if it does what I need it to, and if so, I’ll buy it. But I’m having some trouble. I tried getting it from HiPStore(from the iPad) and AppCake(from the computer synced to the iPad), and my problem is that HiPStore won’t finish downloading it, and the AppCake version won’t install after syncing. I really don’t want to spend $10 on an app that may or may not work for me, so if someone could help me out, I’d really appreciate it.

    P.S. Sorry that this is beyond irrelevent, just not sure where else would be better. :) Thanks

      • Jonathan

        Sorry, I don’t trust that. Windows version doesn’t exist, so how could you have created that in such a short time?

  • Jerry Warmerdam

    So the exploit is not patched, like I said before, the modified version just probably added a line of code to accept the new beta 3 and the rest will run like normal :)

  • Micaiah Martin

    Hey a little of topic. But as of late a lot of my apple apps crash on launch. I resrung, rebooted, and disabled all the tweaks. Still crashes on launch. Mainly it’s mail and weather. App Store works as well as messages. Here are the tweaks I have.

    • Huntz

      This issue has been addressed and resolved a hundred times. Google/Reddit is your friend.

      • Micaiah Martin

        Wow thanks for nothing.
        Ok so I have found what was wrong app sync was causing it. Which is a bummer because I use that to test out the apps I develop. So yeah if you are having this trouble. Delete app sync. The go into /var/mobile/Library/cache and delete com.apple.mobile.installation.plist
        Then reboot. That should work. It’s worked for me.

        why didn’t work?

        Let’s try use this version :)

  • Nawfaal Mangou

    Doesn’t work on iPhone 5. Stuck at Apple boot logo after jailbreaking. Had to downgrade to beta 2. :(

    • Kevin Meijers

      You did a OTA update to beta 3? You need to do a full restore with iTunes

  • Stevie Havoc

    Downloaded that windows version and jailbreak my 4s on 7.1 beta 3 everything went well as normally thanks man.

    • Kevin Meijers

      You’re welcome. Have fun!

      • Stevie Havoc

        Always, I’m going to try that method with ifile so this beta never expires just in case this is the last beta/can be jailbroken.

      • Kevin Meijers

        Should work. Let me know! Going to upgrade/jailbreak in a few hours.

      • Stevie Havoc

        Nice, I’ve never messed with this file before lol so I’m reading what I have to change exact detail to spoof.

      • Kevin Meijers

        Remove beta string. Change version to 7.0.4 AND build to 7.0.4 build number.

        This way you won’t have problems with buying in Cydia either!

      • Stevie Havoc

        Done, works good, it respring once on its own, with the progress bar under the logo. Guess it work right ?

      • Kevin Meijers

        Yes, thats normal!

        Check: Settings > General > About

        Can’t wait to try.. Just a few hours till I’m home

      • Stevie Havoc

        I got off of 7.1 beta 3 too many tweaks I like that don’t work properly maybe I’ll go back idk yet tho.

      • Kevin Meijers

        Everything I use works fine?!

      • Stevie Havoc

        Sbrotator7,icons were messed up, maybe I’ll try again like I said but I’ll do a clean jb without a restore this time

  • Lhunar

    Are you sure this app is working? Because if opened it, but nothing happens…i think its broken

    • Stevie Havoc

      Yeah I’m sure, run it as admin of course, I have windows 8.1 pro no problems ever jb ios7-7.1 betas

      • Lhunar

        Duh… Who cares about windows anyway…Its mac only….

      • Kevin Meijers

        First you try and say it’s not working.. Then you say “Who cares about Windows anyway?”

  • Stevie Havoc

    So after that, I cleared cached with icleanerpro, and did a reboot, evasion kernel thing came up said it was reading kernel and it booted thru, just the mail app and safari won’t open now that I’ve tried wtf

    Jailbreak device and install iFile.
    Then navigate to System/Library/CoreServices and open the SystemVersion.plist in Property List viewer.
    Within there, delete the ‘ReleaseType’ Beta key per the advice from iH8sn0w and as stated at start of this thread
    Also within same file, overwrite the value for the key ProductBuildVersion to be 11B554a
    Close iFile and reboot/respring for good measure
    You can then test this by setting clock forwards to after the 27 January expiry for b2 and it will still reboot without going to activation issues.

    Probably a dumb question but if anything happens during this, meaning some malicious or anything, I can still restore and remove everything correct?

    • Y2J

      Yes you can.

      • Ryan James Christensen

    If you’re jailbreaking iOS 7.1 betas with evasi0n, remove the ReleaseType Beta Value in SystemVersion plist to remove the expiry!

    To get out of the beta and back on 7.0.4, I did an alt+click on “check for update” and clicked the .ipsw file of which I downloaded from the iOS dev centre. It worked fine. I had all of my data from the 7.1 beta update successfully on 7.0.4. iPhone 5 on Verizon.

    There’s anyway to bypass activation on iOS 7.1 beta 3 for non dev accounts or udid ?

    • PeterMZanetti

      So far 7.1 betas have no required UDID authentication. Not sure about beta 3.

    Can anyone with windows confirm this modified version works on windows?

  • Freddy Born

    There not really a point on that. Most of the tweaks don’t work with 7.1 beta

  • Rehny

    the link for the ‘unoffical modified version of evasi0n ios7-1-beta–3′ throws up an error 509…. disabled because of “…too much traffic”.

    • Rehny

      Ok. It is now functioning.

    Do all tweaks in cydia work with 7.1? (iOS 7 compatible)
