If your so upset about all this create your own jailbreak…

why the is everyone so upset!!! Let them be! for god sake!!! I don´t care if they earn 10,000,000 by selling or including some app in the jailbreak! what you all should be thankful of is that its free and you have it. All this is happening because @i0nic (Stefan Esser) is so envious because he couldn´t do it himself. He´s still hurt for being excluded some time ago. The same goes for the saurik you backstabber. Always wanting to look like a referi or a a non-biased entity. You are nothing else but another greedy upset because you didn´t earn out of the JB. This is just ridiculous, everyone is upset because Evad3rs didn´t previously notified what they were going to do... I hope the do all the jailbreaks the same way from now on. Everyone is criticizing taig for piracy as if cidya were all that legal. Cydia is the same, just add some repo and you´ll have the mother of piracy right in your phone. All the ppl criticizing the JB are nothing but a lame envy. THANK YOU EVAD3RS...... THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU.... Multiply that thanks for 10,0000 times please.

People are upset because they don't like being outed as pirates. Obviously this doesn't bother you.

IOS7 gives everything you need Jailbreak is just to feed money to developers
Deavmi - December 23, 2013 at 9:06am
I don't trust them. Just don't.
ScathingMoon - December 23, 2013 at 5:07am
As I was saying lol. They let money completely screw up their credibility. Messing around like this will turn folks off to JB all together.
ScathingMoon - December 23, 2013 at 5:05am
Welp I was sooo looking forward to this. But apparently they let money completely
MightyMax - December 23, 2013 at 4:12am
This is why I left the scene. Too much drama. It's always like this! Teams fighting and splitting up guys moving from one team to another and then back again. Banning people from the channel and starting new channels an teams. I felt like I was playing Travian :P so sad we can't all just get along.

This is probably the worst thing that has ever happened in JB scene. Can't really say I'd trust any chinese mystery app either. Pissing on Sauriks feet is just a cherry on top of everything... JB is all about freedom to customize your phone and run homebrew. Sucksi0n!

If they install an unknown app, what's stopping them from adding any other malware to the jailbreak?
Jason - December 22, 2013 at 11:47pm
The main problem with this jailbreak is, that it contains a (previously) unknown app which is installed without asking for permission.
dmc - December 22, 2013 at 10:55pm
Couldn't they just have added a repo source for Taig for Chinese customers with the option to download it. Could have saved the all this embarrassment.
Divesh - December 22, 2013 at 11:17pm
Exactly what I meant but I think they did it for money
Chinese - December 22, 2013 at 10:47pm
Just leave the chinese guys with their app alone, let them do what they want, why do u involve them into your jailbreak? Plus because of your fights we are confused.
Lemon - December 22, 2013 at 10:44pm
Major set back for jailbreaking ! I would like to know if the release is useable or have they pulled it…
None - December 22, 2013 at 10:34pm
What's really sad is that we've argued jail breaking wasn't about piracy, these guys just threw that entire argument out the window. Jail breaking is obviously about piracy if the people doing the jail breaking take money from a company that specializes in piracy apps. Money is the most recognized language in the world, great job morons.
sellouts - December 22, 2013 at 10:27pm
They have lost all trust. They are putting user safety and security at risk. They clearly have no control of what this Chinese company does. No one should use this jailbreak, their priorities are clearly not in favor of the end users. And then they go trying to blame an independent person (Saurik) who helped everyone equally.
Yasine - December 22, 2013 at 9:58pm
Can someone explain what happened in like a sentence!
GG - December 22, 2013 at 10:18pm
Wow you are lazy
BLah - December 22, 2013 at 9:34pm
Wow, they could of charged us for the jailbreak...I wrote an article about the lack of accountability on the jailbreak scene awhile ago. They're all spoiled rich brats who, obviously based on this debacle, have no idea how the world works. I don't believe a word these guys say.
dude1000 - December 22, 2013 at 9:50pm
Yea I don't believe these guys. If they cared, they would've at least told Saurik instead of just releasing it because things will get updated eventually. All they seemed to care about is releasing a jailbreak ahead of anyone else, but for what reason. I sense they have an alternative motive.

Ya a million dollars from the Chinese company. And maybe royalties from their AppStore profits. Doesn't sound safe to me. Looks like greed has taken over.
Kornmehl - December 22, 2013 at 9:11pm
Why won't Evad3rs simply accept that the Jailbreak scene is all about piracy? They may feel that they are being noble just trying to make the software scene more open. Or maybe they just like the feel of beating 'the Man.' However, the only reasons others want them to succeed is for piracy. Simply put, they are being played.
dude1000 - December 22, 2013 at 9:46pm
Accepting that jailbreak is all about piracy would technically make jailbreaking illegal. Besides, there are still good tweaks out that is not pirated apps. Like ad blockers and firewalls. And way back when the old iPhones and iPod touch came out, jailbreaking was primarily used to have what we have now like wallpapers and such. Its original intension was for more features but have since been misused for piracy. Its sad to see what has become of jailbreaking but it is useful for those wanting full system access to their mobile device.

I think it's alittle fishy that they released a jailbreak with support for a Chinese AppStore the same day apple announced a deal with china mobile. They know millions of phone activations will be coming to china. And a good percentage will probably jailbreak after getting their phone. Seems to me that the million dollars they paid evasion is penny's to what they will make on selling pirated apps. You never know. Maybe they made a deal to get royalties from the Chinese AppStore.
sparkyxx - December 22, 2013 at 9:02pm
hahaha, they just lost any credibility they had...
