iOS 7 Jailbreak is Available Now

The folks at evasi0n have released the untethered Jailbreak for iOS 7.x!

There was some initial concern that the jailbreak was being released with a Chinese App Store by the name of TaiG, as that was not something that came bundled in previous jailbreaks.  The unexpected App also contained pirated software, something that the guys at evasi0n do not condone.

As a result of the concern on the part of the jailbreaking public, the inclusion of TaiG was disabled until they can work with them to remove the pirated software from their App Store. 

Even if does happen to be included, you can remove TaiG and install Cydia instead, which is the alternative app store where you can get all of your favorite jailbreak tweaks from. 

So have at it if you are a fan of jailbreaking.  I would be doing that right now myself, if it weren't for the fact that I have an appointment with the Apple store on Friday to hopefully replace my iPhone 5 due to a small black blob appearing when taking pictures with the main camera. 

My super swell brother-in-law David has a way with the Apple folks and was able to convince them to give a one-time replacement for the issue even though my phone is out of warranty.  I have my fingers crossed that all will go as planned and I can get it replaced for free. 

If all goes well, I will jailbreak my phone this weekend.  Right now there probably are not a ton of tweaks and apps designed for iOS 7, as the jailbreak just came out yesterday, so there is probably no urgent rush. 

But if you're like me, you'll be excited to do it now anyway, just cause you can! 

Enjoy and I'll again wish you all a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
