The Evasi0n team announced on Sunday morning that they have released an untethered jailbreak for devices running iOS 7.0 through 7.0.4.
The security bypass gives iPhone, iPod, and iPad owners deeper access to the iOS on their devices than Apple allows.
The jailbreak takes just five minutes to install and works on both OS X and Windows-based machines, according to Evasi0n, which included step-by-step installation instructions. The bypass allows devices to be rebooted without connection to an external device.
Apple is expected to fix the exploits Evasi0n is using to jailbreak the company’s devices. The company has long recommended that users not jailbreak their device at the risk of security vulnerabilities, shortened battery life, unreliable voice and data, disruption of services, and the inability to apply future software updates.
