The elite team of hackers known as “evad3rs” could already have “all the pieces” required to put together an iOS 7 jailbreak, according to team member @planetbeing. The news comes less than one month after the group, which also counts @pod2g and @MuscleNerd among its members, started investigating iOS 7 for potential jailbreak exploits.
Hacker @planetbeing’s Twitter update doesn’t give much away, but it nevertheless sounds extremely promising. It reads:
We’re still working hard on the jailbreak. May have all the pieces at this point (but not certain yet).

Of course, no word regarding compatibility has been confirmed by the group. Given that Apple’s iPhone 5s ships with a new 64-bit Apple A7 processor, it could be that the first release of an iOS 7 jailbreak doesn’t support the seventh-generation handset. Here’s hoping this isn’t the case, however.
We’ll keep you updated with further information as we receive it.
