hypnosec writes "Evad3rs, the famous iOS jailbreak team, has announced an iOS 7 jailbreak that will work in all iDevices including iPhone 5S, iPhone 5C and iPad Air running iOS 7.0 through to iOS 7.0.4. The iOS 7 jailbreak was announced without much of a hype, unlike the one for iOS 6. 'Merry Christmas! The iOS 7 jailbreak has been released at! All donations will go to @publicknowledge, @eff and @ffii,' tweeted evad3rs." Reader FrogBlastTheVentCore adds a note of caution: "They recommend restoring your device to iOS 7.0.4 if it has received OTA updates before attempting to jailbreak."

    I used to think this way, and avoided buying iOS devices for a while because of this thinking.

    Then I realized, iOS devices are more like appliances and less like "computers". They're meant to do a specific task well. They're not meant to be general purpose computing systems.

    If I need a real computer, that's what my laptop is for. It's FAR more capable hardware-wise than my phone or iPad. The phone and iPad are both good at what they do, and incredibly stable and reliable. Both times I've jailbroken them, I never really ended up doing much with the jailbreak other than running console emulators, which work better on the laptop anyway.

    it is worth the trade offs in terms of stability, usability and security.

    This is, quite frankly, a false tradeoff. You can get the same stability, usability and security in several ways (like not running as root by default, like requiring extra steps to become root as with Android, etc), WITHOUT taking freedom away from users who would want it.

    Remember, everyone has freedom of speech until they want to say something that is forbidden, but those times are when speech protections are most important.
