Evasi0n Jailbreak for iOS 7 in Doubt?

ios 7 jailbreak(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – Will users be able to jailbreak their iOS devices when version 7 arrives? The issue could hinge on whether or not jailbreak developer Evad3rs will develop one.

According to a report for the International Business Times on Friday, recent comments from the evad3rs team have shed doubt on the possibility.

“iOS 7 design is awful, it’s slow, battery life time is the worst ever, it’s full of UI bugs and crashes. OK it’s beta 1, but still…,” tweeted pod2g on Monday.

“Worst case would be to stay on iOS 6,” tweeted co-Evad3rs team member Nikias Bassen.

Evad3rs notably skipped out on developing a jailbreak for iOS 6.1.3, instead deciding to focus on a bigger release (now considered iOS 7). Meanwhile, if an iOS 7 jailbreak from evad3rs in a nonstarter, users may either want to stick with iOS 6.1.2 or wait for one from Cydia.
