iOS 7 Untethered Jailbreak FAQ
After numerous rumors of a deal for a million dollars to place Chinese App Store into jailbreak utility for iOS 7, piracy support and even a potential leak users' personal data, the team evad3rs hastened to publish an explanation to users.
Hackers have prepared an appeal to the "dear jailbreak community," which states that they are upset because of the numerous rumors and speculation about the new tool and would like to clarify the situation.
During the development of tools and exploits hackers received a proposal to build an additional application store for Chinese users. This idea seemed good to developers as a regional service Taig could meet the needs of Chinese users. Also you can always remove this store and have only Cydia as usual without re-jailbreaking.
Hackers say that none of the Taig creators never asked them to reveal exploits, it is only about embedding additional store in a similar way as an alternative to Cydia installed when using the tool blackra1n for example.
The presence of Taig does not affect the safety of users' confidential information. Vulnerabilities or data loss would quickly become known by the Apple security experts. Any malicious software that is embedded in the new jailbreak utility would quickly become known to the masses of users. Obfuscation binary utilities need not to confuse the experts - they will be able to understand the source code in any way - but should prevent unwanted use and repackaging others.
Preventing the spread of pirated applications is also very important to hackers. Developers are very upset by the splash of the unlicensed software, which occurred today. By signing an agreement with the Taig, they added to the contract that there will not be pirated applications and games in the store. This was a very important condition for partnership and hackers hope that cooperation with Taig improves the situation of piracy in China.
If you believe evad3rs, they are very upset that the alternative product is found unlicensed software. The creators of the store notified of this and are working on removing pirated applications. If the situation is not corrected, the hackers have promised to remove Taig from jailbreak utility.
On the question of why the utility was released earlier than iOS 7 were optimized Cydia and Mobile Substrate, hackers reported that they had told Saurik, creator of Cydia, about a possible partnership with the Chinese app store. Shortly thereafter Saurik made a counter-proposal to the Chinese and by competing jailbreak developers and began to help them launch the utility before evad3rs. This situation did not suit hackers, so they decided to hasten the release.
Hackers do not deny that they had received money from a Chinese company for adding store. They emphasize that the utility has always been and will be free. They are upset that the jailbreak community reacted negatively to this partnership and promise yourself somehow rehabilitate.
