The evad3rs have a new project, and you’re not going to believe what it is

In addition, @MuscleNerd tweeted just last week about whether or not those considering future jailbreaks on their iOS devices should update to 7.0.3.  That being said, you’ll never guess what they’re considering throwing their collective weight behind next–wait for it…

Maybe it’s just me?  But isn’t this a bad sign?  I mean, sure, everyone is entitled to make a buck, and these guys are some of the hardest working hackers/programmers in the world the past few years, and they need to eat, too.  But….
