Evad3rs Talk About Evasi0n iOS 7 Jailbreak Controversy



The Evasi0n Jailbreak for iOS 7 became huge mess of controversy thanks to all the information that was going around that no one quite knew what to do with.

Right now, it seems that it’s kind of buggy, that’s based on reports from those using it. That said, the team has spoken out about the mess. They’ve removed TaiG, and said that they were not paid out by the developers to include it on their jailbreak software.

Here’s a portion of the team’s statement:

However, after investigation and after notification from the community, we found examples, including pirated tweaks, Apple App Store apps, and even pod2g’s PodDJ app. We dropped the ball on this. While we at first did not believe Taig purposefully violated our agreement, the depth of the transgression against the software developers and the jailbreak community cannot be overlooked and we could not move forward after that even if it were fixed.

Furthermore, the Evasi0n team has terminated its relationship with TaiG, and claims that the jailbreak that was floating around with TaiG’s app was a cracked version and that “we did not give them any permission or source code.”

Well, isn’t that still a lovely mess?
