Jailbreak for iOS 7 users is now available

If you are the user of an iOS device like the iPhone or iPad on iOS 7 and are on the lookout for a jailbreak that will unlock your device a new one is now available. The evasi0n7 jailbreak is available to download right now, and only requires five minutes of your time to install.
 
The jailbreak can be performed with a Windows- or OS X-based computer, while the iOS device has to be running iOS 7 through 7.0.4 (the jailbreak also reportedly works on the first two betas of iOS 7.1).

 
One big caveat, however, is that Cydia hasn’t been update yet to support the latest jailbreak. The evad3rs team warns, “Many Cydia tweaks are not yet compatible with iOS 7. Please always backup your phone before installing new tweaks from Cydia as your iPhone could be stuck in the boot process. The situation will improve as developers will update their software."
 
So just like with any other jailbreak in the past, proceed with caution when updating your device.

I have a strong suspicion that Apple will consider this as a non-warranty repair.

Recovery Mode --> Restore

I don't think that it's possible to completely software brick an iPhone, although I could be wrong.

Most likely only if you tell them what you were doing. If it won't boot they aren't going to find out it's jailbroken and they will probably just restore it in DFU mode like any moderately-savvy user would.


Super awesome
