iOS 7 Jailbreak and Unlock Information

With all the excitement surrounding the upcoming WWDC and what it is likely to reveal, much attention has been turned to jailbreaking, the iOS 7 jailbreak in particular. First of all, for those who are new to the scene, a little background. Evasi0n was released in February to provide an untethered jailbreak solution for virtually all iOS devices on iOS 6. Apple subsequently released a couple of upgrades but, surprising none of them interfered with the jailbreak, until 6.1.3 was released. This shut down most of the exploits used in building the jailbreak and was closely followed by 6.1.4 which was for the iPhone 5 only.

Briefly, if you have an iPhone 4, 3GS or iPod Touch 4 you can carry out a tethered jailbreak using Redsn0w. However, anything above that cannot do anything until the next one is released, once iOS 7 is out in the open and has gone public.

Now, while those of you who are stuck on the later firmware cannot jailbreak, you can still unlock your device. This, as we all know is a different process altogether, allowing your device to be opened up to carry a SIM card for any carrier. If you have an iPhone 5 on iOS 6.1.4 use this guide to unlock your phone. For those on 6.1.3, you can follow this guide.

Right now, evad3rs and P0sixninja are working on an untethered jailbreak for iOS 7. They have the exploits necessary but, despite many requests, have refused to build the utility for iOS 6.1.3 or 6.1.4. The reason for this is these are minor upgrades and the exploits are better left for a jailbreak that is going to reach the maximum audience, which will be iOS 7.

Apple is due to unveil iOS 7 at their WWDC, which starts in San Francisco on Monday June 10th. Once the developers get a look at it, they will have a better idea of where to go with the jailbreak. iOS 7 is expected to be publicly released in the Fall and the iOS 7 jailbreak will follow on sometime after that.
