OK,

 

Can't verify the source of this audio, the poster claims the one selling the exploit in the record is Geohot:

 

This audio is posted by a Chinese hacker, here is the source:http://weibo.com/202...u?mod=weibotime

 

 

The following is a translation from that Chinese source:

Source: http://www.mediafire...j20hs7as4mx.jpg

 

So the rumor is:

 

Geohot joined the iOS7 jailbreak, and offer selling the expoit to a Chinese company for $450k. But that campany was approching to evaders for the expoit, and willing to pay $600k.

 

So evaders released the JB tool without Cydia included. (the one you installed is not the official version).

 

What you guys think?? :D

Wow. Interesting to see where this will go. I just wonder is it at all a good idea to install a closed source jailbreak. Not that I trust apple, but I also don't trust shady chinese companies.

wow, this is all so suspensfull. at least we know that ios7 job is here to stay. can't wait for appsync and hopefully also something to bypass the activation lock

I don't think the jail break was stolen, cause I think the evaders would have said something. according to then they made a deal with Tait, no theft there ( except the cracked apps)

Evad3rs got a offer off TaiG and they informed SauikIT. SaurikIT tried to get a deal with other companies but Evad3rs stuck with TaiG.

 

They then got wind that SaurikIT was working with another group that were going to put out a JB (presumably using the same exploits) before Evad3rs.

 

They diceded to jump first and get it out there and then let the community catch up with compatiable tweaks etc in the hours and days after the release.

Closed iOS7 JB keeps those pesky Apple workers from countering it as fast.

I'm all for it.

if there was open source jailbreak surely, someone would make a version of the jailbreak that bypasses the activation lock , and potentialy to profit from it....but hey at least somebody would bypass it.. so many people are scammed into buying bricked devices....
..and yeah it would let Apple quickly patch it so that's why it won't be done...
as for what evaders did taking the money.. come on guys it isn't that big of a deal... it isn't criminal or anything ... and potentially thus can be a way to start alternate legit appstore that sell apps that aren't availabe the appstore. cydia sells some apps, but it is mostly tweaks.. as for appsync .. c'mon.. it doesn't use mobilesubstrate so that really isn't an advancement.. and it is very unlikely it contains "Chinese malware"... most likely when mobile substrate is fixed .. the other appsync will work, but really I think not relying on it is a big advancement.

just my view
