Everyone privy to IT sphere knows that iOS7 is not jailbroken yet. It’s a jail-bird still, as it were.
What’s The Urgent Need?
A great number of businesses and ordinary users depend upon the breakthrough solution for iPhone jailbreak immensely. They are anticipating it with bated breath. There are obvious advantages of jailbreak. Users can have the total freedom to control their own devices. An open source jailbreak for iOS 7 gives users the capability to install what they want and to audit the code they’re using to do so.
Every time Apple releases a new updated OS, the hackers get to work diligently; pretty soon, a new jailbreak is released. As ill luck would have it, several months have passed after the most recent iOS7 release, not followed by any successful hacking attempts. Let’s take a trip down memory lane.
History of Attempts
The iPhone Dev Team (not affiliated with Apple) has released a series of free desktop-based jailbreaking tools for almost every iOS version starting from 2008. It joined its efforts with Chronic Dev Team and pod2g in 2012, quite fruitfully at that (versatile tools for iPad/iPod/iPhone jailbreak). This year, the group of hackers called the evad3rs has already released several tools.
Among outstanding personalities in jailbreaking, there is George Hotz, who undertook his exploits in 2009-2010. Nicholas Allegra (better known as “comex”) released his programs in 2010-2011.
Some Internet sources claim that iJailbreak Pro has already released a paid jailbreak for iOS7 ranging in price from $30-50. Alas, it’s not open source. Thus, we’re still waiting.
Solution Is Under Way Already
As a sort of prod, there is the Device Freedom Prize created: a crowd-funded reward for the first developer(s) who release an open source iOS 7 jailbreak. As per now, there is the sum of $8692 collected; it’s growing visibly with literally every second. Everyone concerned is welcome to add to the fund.
There are respectable judges to evaluate the contribution of an aspirant: Chris Maury, Prize proposer and accessibility advocate; Cory Doctorow, Co-editor of Boing Boing, Author, and DMCA Activist; Kyle Wiens, Co-founder and CEO, iFixit; and Biella Coleman, Professor and Author of Coding Freedom.
The competition site features a very long list of the undisguised contributors (331 at the moment of the article creation) with the exact sums of their contributions, as well as the anonymous donators. Variants of contribution sums (fixed or custom amount) and payment methods are reasoned out as well.
There are several rigid criteria for claiming the prize, and a transparent procedure of its awarding. The prize panel will review all submissions to ensure that they meet the prize criteria. The prize will go to the first person/group that creates and submits a successful solution for iOS 7 jailbreak. 90% of the prize fund will be paid out to the winning submission. If no one claims the prize within 18 months, all donors will be contacted and provided with the instructions as to how to receive a refund.
As it was mentioned above, many companies are looking forward to jailbreak. One of them is mSpy, a mobile software vendor of an iPhone spy app, which contributed to the Device Freedom Prize project as well. You may find out more about its awesome functions before you get started. It’s interested in the quickest actualization of this undertaking, as mobile software of various types alternative to Apple App Store’s scanty choice doesn’t work on iPhones without jailbreak. Period.
