Evasi0n7 for iOS 7 gets an update from previous v1.0.6 to new v1.0.7 which is now the latest one at the time of this writing. Nothing is changed in the latest version except a bug is fixed which was plaguing some devices. The affected iPhone and iPad models were not getting the latest updates and new Cydia packages from already added repositories. Unfortunately there is still no way to push the fix for any specific device through already available universal cydia package. So, the evad3rs team had to release the new version evasi0n7 1.0.7 to fix the issue.
How to Know If You Need Evasi0n 1.0.7?
As we have told you the bug in previous evasi0n version is affecting only few devices, so if you want to know whether your device is also included in the affected models, run this simple test as suggested by Evad3rs team on twitter.
A quick way to check if you’re affected: search for a recently-released package (like SSLPatch) in Cydia. If you can find it, you’re good.
