It's an early Christmas present... but it could either be from Santa or the Grinch.
This morning, the jailbreak for iOS 7 was dropped by the Evasi0n team, and will work for devices using iOS 7.0 to 7.0.4. By following a walkthrough—which you can check out in the video above—the entire jailbreak can be done in about five minutes. Easy, breezy, right? Sure, but Jay Freeman, who created the app Cydia, says that the app that comes with the jailbreak isn't official. So...
I thereby have no clue what will or will not work, or even what evasi0n7 includes; I hope that people bear with me as I figure this all out.— Jay Freeman (saurik) (@saurik) December 22, 2013
Do this at your own risk. There is always a chance that your phone could get bricked, which could really screw up your holidays.
Let us know if it works for you.
