iOS 7.1:
There is currently no tool available that allows users to jailbreak iOS 7.1. Apple has patched several vulnerabilities in iOS 7.1, which has killed the evasi0n7 jailbreak, which allowed users to jailbreak iOS 7 – iOS 7.0.6.
Though hackers have demonstrated a jailbreak for iOS 7.1 on iPhone 4S and iPhone 4, it seems unlikely that they will release a jailbreak anytime soon. evad3rs, hackers behind the evasi0n7 jailbreak have said that they don’t plan to work on a jailbreak for iOS 7.1.
Please note that any site claiming to have a jailbreak for iOS 7.1 is a scam, so stay clear from such sites. If there is a jailbreak for iOS 7.1, it will be available for free, and we’ll be the first to report it here.

    Hi, I am looking for some advice on jail breaking. I recently bought an iPhone 3GS, which was jailbroken. Up until now it was running fine in iOS 4 Software, until today when we decided to upgrade it to iOS 5 software. Now it will not accept the SIM. Does this mean it is locked again, and if so, can I re-jailbreak it again? Personally I don’t care if the phone is jailbroken or not, but I just need it to be unlocked. Also, I am not sure which iOS 5 software version has been installed.
    Help would be much appreciated.

  • dipsy_d

    I have an iPhone 3G. It was purchased in the US and then brought to NZ and jailbroken and unlocked for use here (it originally was my sons and then my own) One day I updated it (big mistake now I know), and then stopped working. My son reset it to factory settings. Now all it shows is a screen saying to insert a Sim, and an emergency call keypad. I have gone through a diff website and gone through the steps to jailbreak using Pwange tool. I get as far as putting phone into DFU and iTunes does all the restore stuff etc. At the end of this process it pops up with the same old message, no sim etc, and clicking to open my pwange custom restore doesn’t do anything. I also tried downloading Absinthe but it does not support my device. Do you have any suggestions as to what I should do now?? Oh, and I am on a Mac

    Hi, my 13 year old daughter has taken it upon herself to try and jailbreak her iPhone 5.0. As a result the phone no longer works. Is there a way to reset the phone back to it’s original out-of-the box non-jailbroken state?

    • http://www.iphonehacks.com iPhoneHacks

      Yes, you can restore your iPhone to revert back to the factory settings.

      • Mike Z

        I know this is a stupid question, but can you pint me to instructions on how to do that?

        • Mike Z

          I should mention I know how to do it from settings. The problem is that when I turn the phone on it just beeps and I do not get a screen.
