Later today Apple will release iOS 7 to the public. People who want to have the ability to jailbreak their devices are wondering what exactly they’re supposed to do. iH8sn0w, a popular figure in the jailbreak arena, recommends that they don’t update to iOS 7 right away.
Recently there has been a lot of talk about the possibility of an iOS 6.1.3/6.1.4 untethered jailbreak release. Apparently developers have had a breakthrough and they might be able to push out this jailbreak to the public in the coming days or weeks. Though nothing has been said right now about a release by jailbreak developers. This particular untethered jailbreak is said to be compatible with all iOS devices that run on an A5 or later processor.
People who would want to jailbreak their devices must downgrade today to iOS 6.1.3/6.1.4 even if they have a beta version of iOS 7 installed. Once the new update is released today, the signing window for both firmware versions will be closed, possibly within minutes, after that downgrading will be out of the question. Those who already have a jailbreak on a device that’s running iOS 6.0 to iOS 6.1.2 have been advised to retain their current firmware versions.
It was said recently that jailbreak developers have also started working on a jailbreak for the upcoming update, there seems to be a possibility of an iOS 7 jailbreak for all compatible devices, but there’s no word on the release timeframe as yet.
