PSA: Jailbreak apps and tweaks relying on MobileSubstrate may have issues with evasi0n7 on iOS 7

evasi0n jailbreak

The evad3rs team took everyone by surprise with the release of evasi0n7 jailbreak for iOS 7, including the creator of Cydia, Jay Freeman aka saurik. This means tweaks relying on mobilesubstrate could have issues with the new jailbreak.

Freeman complained that he was not given early builds of evasi0n, so he couldn’t ensure MobileSubstrate was working fine. He also said that he wasn’t asked for an official Cydia build for iOS 7, and the Cydia build included in evasi0n is “unofficial.”

pod2g, member of the evad3rs team said that they’re working on a fix for the MobileSubstrate related issues, which could be delivered as a 1.x update to evasi0n7.

Most jailbreak apps rely on MobileSubstrate to tweak system functions, so this could make the first version of evasi0n disappointing for many people who would want to change the way iOS 7 looks or functions. Hopefully, a fix is released soon.
