The Evad3rs team released Evasi0n 7 1.0.7 to address Cydia problems with the previous jailbreak version Evad3rs

Apple Inc. (Nasdaq:AAPL) iOS 7.0’s days are somewhat numbered as the Cupertino, Calif.-based technology company continues to prepare for its rumored March release of iOS 7.1 for devices such as the iPhone 5S, iPad Air, iPad Mini Retina and iPod Touch.

With that in mind, jailbreak developers have been quick to test each incremental update to iOS 7.0.x and update their jailbreak tools accordingly. However, some of those fixes managed to cause some trouble as well.

While the Evad3rs team was quick to release the Evasi0n 7 1.0.6 jailbreak for iOS 7.0.6, it unfortunately introduced a new problem which broke app repository package information that couldn’t be refreshed or updated in Cydia.

 

 

Fortunately, the Evad3rs team was able to quickly patch the problem and release Evasi0n 7 1.0.7 for iOS devices running iOS 7.0 through 7.0.6.

According to Evad3rs team, this particular update is geared primarily for users with the Cydia issue. Unfortunately, since Evasi0n 7 1.0.6 appeared to be causing some issues with the way Cydia handled packages, this particular jailbreak update has to be applied by restoring an affected iOS device and then running Evasi0n 7 1.0.7 on it to jailbreak it again.

 

 

It’s not certain whether or not this will be the last iOS 7.0.x update before the release of iOS 7.1, which is rumored to release sometime in March. While unconfirmed, with Apple's latest CarPlay announcement, the possibility of iOS 7.1 launching in March is becoming more likely.

In the meantime, jailbreak developers have advised iOS users still looking to jailbreak their iOS device to update to the latest version of iOS 7 that is currently jailbreakable (iOS 7.0.6) while the window is still open to do so. Unfortunately, once Apple releases iOS 7.1, users of iOS devices will only be able to upgrade their compatible device to iOS 7.1.

If you plan to jailbreak your iOS device, the Evad3rs team does recommend fully restoring your iOS device before jailbreaking and disabling the passcode lock.
