Evasi0n iOS 7 jailbreak reviews are available on Twitter for iPhone, iPad and iPod users curious whether this release is ready enough for them. A quick look into the comments could enlighten the jailbreaker wannabe. These comments, however, should be considered thoughtfully. Meanwhile, the evad3rs themselves are sharing some insights about what they do. Specifically, they've responded to some criticisms against how they're benefitting financially from jailbreaking iOS.

"If you OTA updated your device, back it up in iTunes and make a FULL restore before applying evasi0n7," @evad3rs tweeted. This Twitter post on the evasi0n iOS 7 jailbreak release updates drew a mix of responses. See some samples below:

"(T)oo late, but nothing suspicious happened so far," tweets user @DoubleYou_Dev. The same user has a tip for those experiencing unwanted errors after installing the new iOS 7 jailbreak utility from evasi0n: "Be patient and wait for a update in cydia. Guess there will be some fixes within the next days."

"(T)his whole jailbreak thing seems kind of sketchy right now. Sounds there was more fail than success," observes @lesliewing. Another Twitter netizen, @aalhasani1, agrees with the observation, saying, "(Y)eah more fail than success hope they're fix it soon."

"That was totally unexpected, perfect move. Good work," tweets @FreeManRepo. This comment was posted in response to the evasi0n iOS 7 jailbreak developers' announcement: "Merry Christmas! The iOS 7 jailbreak has been released at http://evasi0n.com ! All donations will go to @publicknowledge, @eff and @ffii"

The evasi0n iOS 7 jailbreak is a free utility from the evad3rs group of Apple iOS hackers. This is a much-awaited tweak for many Apple device users who would like to have more control over their gadgets. The group, however, has been criticised for gaining financially from what they do.

"Yes, we have benefitted financially from our work, just as many others in the jailbreak community have, including tweak developers, repo owners, etc. Any jailbreak from us will always be free to the users but we believe we have a right to be compensated in an ethical way, just as any other developer," says the group's statement on this page.

"I understand now- it's about TaiG, and apparently cash was handed off. We'll I can't get angry, the JB remains free," Twitter user @XweAponX commented in response to the devs' statement.

The evad3rs are recommending a list of compatible tweaks with iOS 7 on this page. Twitter netizens left comments here with regards to the list to reach out to the jailbreak developers.

The evasi0n iOS 7 jailbreak is expected to be the utility of choice among Apple device jalibreakers, eventually, at least. This untethered jailbreak has been a work in progress since mid-September. Many users are expecting more tweaks post release. The exclusion of Cydia is an issue among many, but the evad3rs have explained, "Cydia, MobileSubstrate, and jailbreak tweaks would be updated after a few days, just as it always has in the course of jailbreaking." Now it's up to the users to decide whether to install the newly released jailbreak or wait 'til there are more reassuring comments and reviews.
