Evasi0n iOS 7 Jailbreak, @iH8Sn0w iOS 6.1.3 Jailbreak: Happy Holidays from Apple Hackers? Stay Away from Fake evasi0n Accounts!

By @jotfields on

Evasi0n iOS 7 jailbreak is on its way, happy holidays to those who have been waiting! The widely trusted Apple hackers have announced the utility will materialize. But no release date has been marked yet. Opportunists are exploiting the newbie jailbreakers by creating fake 'evad3rs' accounts. Even iOS 6.1.3 jailbreak developer @iH8sn0w is helping out in keeping iPhone and iPad users away from the fake evad3rs.

Here is a sample of a Twitter conversation showing fake evad3rs jailbreakers are confusing those looking for the real evasi0n iOS 7 jailbreak:

"You do realize that the @evad3rs_team twitter is fake right? The official one is @evad3rs," @iH8sn0w chimed in. Seemingly in jest, another user butts in, "but they have 'Official' in their name."

Evasi0n iO7 jailbreak developer @planetbeing has earlier raised his thoughts against the fake evad3rs. But there seems to be no stopping the hoax group.

Many Apple iPhone 4 (and later models) users are still on iOS 6.1.2, after heeding @planetbeing's advisory in March. Evasi0n made it clear ahead of iOS 6.1.3 rollout that the group was not going to release a new jailbreak. The latest news from the dev is that evasi0n iOS 7 jailbreak will come "eventually."

"I'd personally stay on 6.1.4 until a jailbreak is public for iOS 7," tweets @iH8sn0w, as a response to a user who is considering updating from iOS 6.1.4.

Meanwhile, evad3r @musclenerd has something to say about evasi0n iOS 7 jailbreak and iOS 7.0.4. Jailbreakers @musclenerd and @planetbeing are with @pimskeks and @pod2g all in the @evad3rs team. 

Jailbreakers are openly criticizing the @evad3rs for not making regular announcements on the evasi0n iOS 7 jailbreak. @Planetbeing, however, insists that the group knows better than announcing a release date when every little piece of the puzzle is not yet in its proper place. That the jailbreak will be delivered "eventually" is the most that he could announce for now.

As for iOS 6.1.3 jailbreak, @iH8sn0w has recently reiterated the release date target for the utility is "before 2014."
