Has someone close to the evad3rs team stolen and sold one or more of the exploits used in the jailbreak of iOS 7, or is this the result of an opportunistic hacker looking to stir up the jailbreak scene in the absence of any new news?

Were Jailbreak exploits for iOS 7 stolen from the evad3rs team?

The first time I read that sentence all I could think was, hugh?  This little rumor went viral this weekend when @i01nc tweeted about the alleged theft

Not really sure what his motives were by making such an accusation without providinf any proof. i0n1c does have a reputation of stirring things up, or trolling the jailbreak scene as some refer to his antics. Perhaps the lack of any new jailbreak news over the last month and a half form evad3rs was his motivation for filling the silence with his statements.  Whatever is going on, rest assured when @pod2g of evad3rs was asked about the validity of the @i0n1c’s statement he was quick to debunk the rumor calling in “complete bullsh–.”

When followed up with a question regarding the status of the team’s efforts at this point @pod2g added “the jailbreak stuff is moving on, but slowly.”  Not a fountain of information, and definitely not the response the jailbreak community was hoping for, but that’s the way it goes sometimes.

With iOS 7.1 beta 2 going live last week, and the fact that it’s looking like a pretty major update, it is doubtful that we would see a new jailbreak until it is released anyway.  Stay tuned, as we are following this story closely, and hope to hear more progress updates in the near future. Unfortunately, thought, all we can do right now is wait, as there typically isn’t a pre-announced jailbreak release date.
