For those of you that recently jaibroke and found some errors regarding cydia dependencies such as substrate v0.9551, your issue is caused by bad timestamps on the evasi0n repository payloads. The solution is to clean it out with icleaner:
Use iCleaner to clear out your repo data, and then everything will reload properly. Here’s what you do:
1. install iCleaner (free)
2. Turn off everything in iCleaner
3. Turn on the “Cydia Sources” switch
4. Hit “Clean” on the top right
5. Go back into cydia, tap the changes tab, tap ‘refresh’ at top left, and wait for data to download and reloading data to finish
6. Uninstall iCleaner (optional)
After many many months of hard work and 19 beta releases to ensure stability, biteSMS is back for iOS 7! Check out the main features at our website Give it a try, it’s pretty neat…Continue Reading ..>>
Now that iOS7 has been jailbroken, it is advised that anyone that ever wants to be on iOS 7.0.4 *ever* gets there very soon. Speculation is that Apple will release an update soon and when that occurs, they will stop signing 7.0.4. Users will have a limited time window to get onto iOS7 and be jailbreakable. Further, reports are that evasi0n only runs on a freshly restored 7.0.4 rather than one a device that got to 7.0.4 via “software update”. So if you have not done so yet, now is the time to backup your device in iTunes, restore it to a fresh 7.0.4, and keep it on ios7.0.4.
For those that have jailbroken, keep in mind that some tweaks may not work. And every tweak needs to be recompiled to work on ARM64 (iphone 5s) so many things installed may simply not show up until updated.Continue Reading ..>>
Mobile substrate (now called cydiasubstrate) has been updated and released for the ios7 jailbreakers. With this, developers can now start compiling and testing their tweaks on arm64 devices such as the iphone 5s. Every tweak will need to at least be recompiled for arm64 support. Something like sbsettings needs a full recompile plus every toggle needs to be recompiled. Several tweaks still aren’t ready. If a tweak does not support arm64 on your 5s type device, it simply wont load or do anything.
Developers wanting to upgrade their tweaks to ios7 can follow this awesome guide. You need a MAC running xcode 4.4 and xcode 5.0.2: http://iphonedevwiki.net/index.php/Updating_extensions_for_iOS_7Continue Reading ..>>
So an iOS7 jailbreak was released today. However, it was done without working with the community. So almost none of the normal jailbreak material are ready (cydia, mobile substrate, any of the tweaks you want to install). Since none of us developers have had any time with ios7 yet, we are all starting our work now. So it will be a while for everything (anything) to be working.
Also, for Chinese users, the jailbreak app installs something called “Taig” (a chinese appstore?) and you have to make sure to check the “cydia” box during jailbreak installation to get cydia installed.
Supporting the iphone 5s is going to be a larger task for most of us developers. The device runs 64bit arm, so unlike in the past, most tweaks have to be recompiled using a mac.
I strongly suggest that you download the jailbreak but do not install it yet for a couple weeks while developers update things. I suggest that you also do not upgrade your device keeping it at 7.0.4.Continue Reading ..>>

Looks like 6.1.2 is out and still jailbreakable with Evasi0n according to planetbeing who tested it on an iphone 5 and ipad mini. Those of you jailbroken cannot directly update so your steps are:
1) Backup device
2) Restore (not update) to latest firmware
3) Activate device, and recover your backup
4) Jailbreak again.
The changes are mainly to fix the exchange bug so if you aren’t impacted by that and don’t want the hassle of updating, feel free to skip 6.1.2 and stay on your existing firmware.Continue Reading ..>>
iOS5 users, if you ever want to jailbreak iOS6, you need to get updated immediately!
Apple is seeding 6.1.1 to developers as a beta. This means 6.1.1 update is coming pretty quick (next few days?) Good chance this has the jailbreak already patched out and also once it’s released you will no longer be able to restore to 6.1. So while you still can, I suggest you get yourselves onto 6.1 today so that if you choose to jailbreak you have the option to do so. If you’re still on 5.x and think you ever want to be jailbroken on 6.x, you should get the update to 6.1 done today.Continue Reading ..>>
If your device won’t boot up, reboot it while holding the volume up key. This will disable all extensions and allow you to get into cydia to solve the problem. Remember this so you do not have to restore to solve problems. (This is only if your device will not boot like you are stuck at apple logo. Otherwise, boot your device up normally).
Now that the jailbreak is out, this will help some of you jailbreakers do a couple of simple things that will protect your jailbreak and help you in case of problems later down the road and prevent having to restore to solve a problem. Remember, once Apple turns off signing 6.1 firmware (like on a future update), you may not be able to restore in case of problems without losing your untethered jailbreak. Therefore, these things will help you in case you do have issues as well as preventing some issues.
1) Remove the “reset all” button in settings. This button will make your device unbootable and you will have to restore. The easiest way to do this is to simply install “ResetAllKiller”. If you’re on the idevice now, you can get there by clicking here.
2) Remove the software update button in settings. This also removes nagging notifications that a pending software update is available. Clicking software update seems to put your device into a non-bootable state if your device is jailbroken. Do this by installing “Software Update Killer” from cydia. If you’re on your device now, you can click here to load cydia and get there. This is also solved by updating the latest jailbreak updates in cydia, but the added protection from software update killer doesn’t hurt.Continue Reading ..>>
The long awaited iOS6 untethered jailbreak is now out for Windows, Linux, and OSX. You can download it and read guides on how to use it at Evad3rs site:
Lots of hours went into this JB. I’m sure the teams would appreciate it if you used the donate button inside of it and sent them a small donation for their efforts (optional of course).
As always, cydia will be extra busy in the first few days so if you’re having cydia related issues, try later is a good suggestion.Continue Reading ..>>
