Do you mean we should at this time upgrade to ios 7 and JB. i am currently on ipad2 (CDMA) ios 6.1.2 JB.
I just got a 5S for Christmas and it has 7.0.3 on it; do I need to update to 7.0.4 through iTunes to jailbreak?
Also, should I even jailbreak? When I read about it a few days ago I heard some fishy things about some deal with a chinese company and pirated apps or something to do with the jailbreak...is it safe?
Any publicly released iOS 7.X version is supported by Evasi0n7, which means 7.0, 7.0.1, 7.0.2 and 7.0.3.
If through installing any tweaks (not just the ones listed) you've come to an issue of recovery mode, or your background is that of a grey color, you can boot your device into partial safe mode, remove the package through Cydia, and either reboot or respring if you have a proper respringing tweak installed. Before installing any tweaks either working or for testing/trial purposes, make sure you have MobileSubstrate and Substrate Safe Mode installed as a safety net.
I have some question on IOS 7.04 and its jailbreak.
On the previous IOS 6, you need to install "resetallkiller", do not do global reset tweak. Do you still need to do this?
IOS 7 is doing app updates automatically? You don't get that little red ballon no more?
What version of iTunes do I need to install IOS 7.0.4? (Currently I have iTunes ver 11.02.25) I saw somewhere that you need higher version for IOS 7 to sync. I have a problem updating my iTunes as it was installed on my c drive and I have very limited space, plus some other factors such as my other disk where I get iTunes to store my music crashed. So now having problems updating to new version.
I have an Ipad 3 model A1430. I would like to download the ipsw file from apple site as per "Official Apple IOS Firmware Download Links for iPad " thread. I assume it will be the Ipad 3 GSM version? (Coz the model number is not stated for Ipad 3's? Thank you.
p/s - sorry if my questions are more IOS 7 related as opposed to Evasion/Cydia. But I plan to reach there sometime. ;-)
Barrel caused my iPad 2 to have the grey background problem and made other tweaks not function. Removed in substrate safe mode and resprung. Back in business. I'm curious if others have had and issue with Barrel.
Grey background and partial safe mode is the takeaway since MobileSubstrate hasn't been updated. Once the Evasi0n7 Untether package has been updated to support the new MobileSubstrate build, the issues should pan themselves out.
Thanks but I'm fully aware of that. I was only telling you because Barrel is listed as working in your list.
Does this mean we are good to go with JB then 7.0.4
Just for a noob can you can do a quick explanation of mobile substrate and were it is on phone i.e cydia etc ?
Freeman spoke to me about the technical details of this change:
"All of Appleâ€™s programs are [now] 64-bit and will require 64-bit extensions. Luckily, an extension can trivially be both 32-bit and 64-bit in the same way apps can, but this will require the developer to recompile them."
He also elaborated about what role MobileSubstrate plays in this process:
"Substrate is a platform for injecting code into another process, and a library that injected code can use to modify its host program. Any â€œtweakâ€ that is in fact a â€œsubstrate extensionâ€ (or anything attempting to be remotely as powerful as a substrate extension) will have to be recompiled."
It is important to distinguish that a Substrate extension is â€œcode that runs in a process and extends its behavior and modifies its logic,â€ whereas a jailbreak tweak in general could be as simple as a package that changes an iOS plist file. This is the reason that some Cydia tweaks work with 64-bit devices like the iPhone 5s, yet others donâ€™t.
Freeman neglected to provide an ETA for the MobileSubstrate update, citing that he wouldnâ€™t give one even if the release was five minutes away.
