iOS 7.1 Beta 4 Is Not Jailbreakable - Stay Away!

iOS 7.1 beta 4 was released just a couple of days back and the feedback from testers and developers is that Apple patched some of the exploits which the Evad3rs used in the Evasion7 tool to jailbreak iOS 7.

Evasi0n 7 was the tool released by the Evad3rs team just before Christmas to jailbreak all iDevices running iOS 7.0 to 7.1 beta 2. By the time Apple released 7.1 beta 3, there were indications that Apple have started putting things to start patching the exploits. 

On releasing iOS 7.1 beta 4, it was noticed that Apple have patched critical exploits used by the Evasi0n tool used in jailbreaking the new iOS 7. What this means is that it won't be possible yet to jailbreak the iOS 7.1 beta 4.

According to @iH8sn0w, there won't be any update to the Evasi0n tool to try jailbreaking iOS 7.1 beta 4. Invariably, people that value their jailbreak should stay away from the iOS 7.1 beta 4.

At the moment, there is no word on whether the Evad3rs team will make a jailbreak for the GM version of iOS 7.1 or maybe they will wait for the next iOS version (iOS 8.0).

Whatever it is, we shall keep you posted on all things jailbreak as it pertains to iOS 7.1 or future iOS releases.
