evasi0n7 jailbreak 1.0.1 update este disponibil, Evad3rs sustin ca au renuntat la remuneratia pentru dezvoltarea solutiei de jailbreak

  evasi0n7 jailbreak a fost lansat saptamana aceasta pentru a oferi posesorilor de iDevice-uri posibilitatea de a efectua un untethered jailbreak pentru iOS 7. Din pacate, software-ul inlocuia in China aplicatia Cydia cu un magazin de aplicatii piratate numit Taig, hackerii de la Evad3rs fiind criticati pentru modificarea aplicata solutiei de jailbreak. Colaborarea dintre Evad3rs si detinatorii Taig a avut la baza remunerarea muncii depuse de catre ei pentru dezvoltarea evasi0n7, insa conform unei scrisori deschise publicate ieri, hackerii au renuntat la bani din cauza faptului ca Taig nu si-a respectat termenii contractuali privind evitarea distribuirii de software piratat.

There have been a lot of rumors listing various amounts we’ve been paid. We have received no monies from any group, including Taig. We will not be accepting any money. Our donations are being given to Public Knowledge, Electronic Frontier Foundation and Foundation for a Free Information Infrastructure to help protect jailbreaking as your legal right.

  Practic acum cei de la Evad3rs ne spun ca au lucrat luni de zile degeaba deoarece o companie din China nu si-a respectat termenii contractuali, isna oare cine se astepta la altceva. Daca povestea este adevarata, atunci este pacat ca echipa de hackeri sa fi muncit atat de mult fara vreun rost si asta probabil ii va convinge sa se gandeasca de 2 ori inainte de a dezvolta viitoare solutii de jailbreak. Versiunea 1.0.1 a evasi0n7 nu face altceva decat sa elimine instalrea Taig in locul Cydia pentru utilizatorii chinezi, software-ul avand in continuare probleme in a face jailbreak corect.

Dear Jailbreak Community (part 2),

We want to address some additional concerns put forth by the community:

Privacy and Taig

First and foremost, and of utmost concern, is privacy. No one’s data was ever sent anywhere. Of course, as a member of the community whose work frees devices, it would be against everything we’ve worked for the last 7 years to jeopardize the security of the users of our software. To reiterate, no Taig software was installed unless the computer’s language was set to Chinese. Furthermore, no Taig software would run unless the user opened the Taig application.

After rumors abound of encrypted data being sent for users in China who’ve installed Taig, we decided to do what we do best – reverse engineer the code of Taig to understand what was being sent. Taig transmitted data similar to what Cydia transmits. Unique device identifiers were transmitted in encrypted form similar to how Cydia uses SSL to protect the privacy of its users. Taig did not transmit any private user data from the devices at all.

Piracy and Taig

Our written and verbal agreement with Taig banned it. They assured us it was not in there. We did not check every package in their store but a cursory examination before release found no problems. However, after investigation and after notification from the community, we found examples, including pirated tweaks, Apple App Store apps, and even pod2g’s PodDJ app. We dropped the ball on this. While we at first did not believe Taig purposefully violated our agreement, the depth of the transgression against the software developers and the jailbreak community cannot be overlooked and we could not move forward after that even if it were fixed. We terminated our relationship with them. We are very disappointed that they have decided to put up a cracked version of the jailbreak on their site that installs Taig. We did not give them any permission or source code.

We have refused all monies from Taig

There have been a lot of rumors listing various amounts we’ve been paid. We have received no monies from any group, including Taig. We will not be accepting any money. Our donations are being given to Public Knowledge, Electronic Frontier Foundation and Foundation for a Free Information Infrastructure to help protect jailbreaking as your legal right.

Jailbreak Updates

We are working hard to fix the problems with the jailbreak. Unfortunately, it’s the holidays and we would like to spend time with our friends and family. The events of the last couple of days have been extremely stressful for us and we need some time to recover. We will work as hard as we can to resolve any remaining issues. Thank you for your understanding.

 

We worked very hard to bring this jailbreak free of charge to the community. We hope you can all enjoy it.
