Jailbreak iOS 7.0.6

Apple has suddenly released an update to the existing firmware, bringing us to version 7.0.6. The release is to fix an SSL connection verification on newer devices and works on all those with iOS 7 support.  As always when Apple updates their software, users are advised not to download it until developers have tested it for jailbreak compatibility.

Winocm has now confirmed, via Twitter, that 7.0.6 does not interfere with the jailbreak and is safe to install.  One of the reasons for this may be because iOS 7.1 does patch the exploits so Apple are content with leaving things be for now. It is thought that iOS 7.1 will be released during March.

It’s hoped that evad3rs will release an update to Evasi0n 7 in due course to jailbreak the new firmware but, in the meantime, if you really can’t wait, you can jailbreak iOS 7.0.6 using the guide below.

Before we start, it is worth mentioning that this method is going to involve making some modifications to the Evasi0n 7 v1.0.5. This is done using Hex editing software and is a fairly simple process. It works on Mac and Windows and all devices that have support for iOS 7 will be able to run the jailbreak.
