pod2g, a key member of the Evad3rs dev team who released evasi0n, the software that allowed users to jailbreak their iPhone, iPad or iPod touch on iOS 6 to iOS 6.1.2 has just expressed his disappointment with iOS 7 features and has said that he is about to switch to Android.
pod2g believes that the way Apple has released an iOS SDK, which allows developers to develop apps and release them in the App Store, Apple should extend the SDK to allow developers to develop and submit tweaks and themes, which can be approved by Apple.
Apple released the iOS 6.1.3 software update on March 19th. It fixed the Lock screen bug and brought improvements to Maps app for Japanese users.
It has been almost a month since evasi0n, the most eagerly awaited jailbreak was released for iOS 6.x and new devices like iPhone 5, iPad 4 and iPad mini.
Jay Freeman aka saurik, founder of Cydia has revealed (via pod2g) that over 14 million iOS devices running iOS 6.x.x have been jailbroken.
There were some concerns that iOS 6.1.1 beta will fix the hacks used by the evad3rs dev team to prevent users from jailbreaking their iOS device.
