The main problem with this jailbreak is, that it contains a (previously) unknown app which is installed without asking for permission.

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.

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.

Major set back for jailbreaking ! I would like to know if the release is useable or have they pulled it…

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.

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.

Can someone explain what happened in like a sentence!

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.

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.

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.

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.
