On Friday, Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) released a new version of iOS with a security update that “provides a fix for SSL connection verification.”

Previously Apple released iOS 7.0.5 for Chinese users to remedy network issues.

As with every release of iOS, jailbreakers immediately jumped in with concerns on whether the Evasi0n 7 jailbreak for iOS 7 would continue to work with this latest update.

MuscleNerd, one of the iPhone hackers and developers behind the Evasi0n jailbreak, sent out this tweet after the iOS 7.0.6 update was released:

 

Soon after, MuscleNerd sent out another tweet advising jailbreak users still on iOS 6.x to update to iOS 7 since an update to iOS 7.1 appears imminent.

 

In addition to iOS 7.0.6, Apple also released iOS 6.1.6 to fix problems with the iPhone 3GS and fourth-generation iPod touches.

According to Winocm, the developer behind the P0sixspwn jailbreak for iOS 6.1.3 through 6.1.5, the latest update for iOS 6 and iOS 7 does not appear to fix any bugs aside from the SSL vulnerability.

 

 

 

While some may have deemed the iOS 7.0.6 update “jailbreak safe,” it is still advised to remain on whatever iOS7 version your device is currently running, especially if your device is already jailbroken, since Evasi0n has not been updated and tested to work with iOS 7.0.6.

If you’re still running iOS 7.0 through 7.0.5 you can still jailbreak your iOS device using the Evasi0n tool in the meantime.
