There’s more good news on the iOS 7 jailbreak front, this time coming from prominent iOS hacker @pod2g.

In a recent Twitter update, @pod2g confirmed that he’s feeling “more and more confident about an iOS 7 public jailbreak,” indicating that the process of developing a working jailbreak tool for Apple’s forthcoming mobile OS is going well.

The hacker was careful to add, however, that this “does not mean [an iOS 7 jailbreak will be released] soon,” and as such jailbreakers are advised not to get their hopes up yet.

As a reminder, work began on an iOS 7-compatible jailbreak tool following the release of iOS 7 Gold Master (GM) to iOS developers. Soon after, another iOS hacker, @planetbeing, announced that the search for usable exploits in iOS 7 had been successful.

Apple is expected to release iOS 7 on Wednesday, Sept. 18. Those looking to hold on to their iDevice’s jailbreak, however, are advised to avoid updating until a jailbreak solution for iOS 7 has been developed and released.
