Evasi0n iOS 7 Untethered Jailbreak Quiet, iOS 6.1.3 Jailbreak 2013 ETA Cancelled? @iH8Sn0w Says 'Not a Promise'

Apple iOS users waiting for evasi0n iOS 7 untethered jailbreak are not getting fresh updates from the @evad3rs group. Meanwhile, iPhone users clamouring for iOS 6.1.3 jailbreak seem to be losing hope of a 2013 release from @iH8sn0w.
Twitter appears to be the most favoured social media channel for updates on iOS 7 and 6.1.3 untethered jailbreak release. However, good news are scarce as the year 2013 draws to a close. The iOS 6 jailbreakers known as @evaders have not posted fresh updates since end-October.
The evasi0n hackers seem to have gotten used to drawing a lot of complaints from Apple iOS users getting impatient over the release of iOS 7 jailbreak. Dev @planetbeing says there was no way to handle release of updates well. He mentioned in an interview that users tend to believe they could release a jailbreak utility days after posting an update.
The same thing applies to dev @iH8sn0w, who earlier announced an end-2013 ETA for iOS 6.1.3 jailbreak. In one his latest Twitter updates, the Apple iOS hacker clarified he did not make a promise when he announced an ETA. In a separate update, the hacker also said he "doubts" there will be an iOS 7 jailbreak before the year ends.

Here's another tweet from @iH8sn0w clarifying his speculation on the (evasi0n) iOS 7 jailbreak:
@ThaPhenomenal21 I never said an iOS 7 jb is coming this year. I doubt that. — iH8sn0w (@iH8sn0w) December 8, 2013
There may not be any new release of iOS 6.1.3 and iOS 7 jailbreak utilities in 2013. But neither @evad3rs nor @iH8sn0w is stopping at working on a "freedom tool" for Apple iPhone, iPad and iPod touch users.

Responding to another tweet saying, "do u think it might be done for the Christmas holiday," @iH8sn0w said:
@ThaPhenomenal21 lol. Definitely not this year. As far as next year, no idea. — iH8sn0w (@iH8sn0w) December 8, 2013
The evasi0n iOS 7 jailbreak development "officially" started in September, based on this tweet from evad3r @planetbeing:
Since everyone loves updates: @evad3rs have now started to actively look at iOS 7.

Three months into iOS 7 jailbreak user anticipation since @planetbeing's post. There has been no optimistic update from any of the four members of the iOS 6 hackers' group. But this update hints work is still in progress. But evad3r @pimskeks reply to this tweet remains positive:
Can't wait for a jailbreak so I can change these scratch drawing icons on iOS 7!! Fingers & toes crossed for ya boys! ;-) @evad3rs
“Don’t worry,” @pimskeks says, as if reassuring iPhone users an evasi0n iOS 7 jailbreak is still in the works. Since iOS 6.1.3 jailbreak is also in progress, many of those who have tried the “latest” iPhone 4 tethered jailbreak utility are hopeful they are not waiting in vain for an untethered jailbreak.
