A little while ago, a tweet was seen, made by the Chronic Dev. Team. In it they said that, alongside some changed to their blog, they would be making a big announcement, although not much has been seen since. Given their past history in creating jailbreak utilities, we can only assume that they could be hinting at creating their own iOS 7 untethered jailbreak.
In the past, the Chronic Dev. team has released such tools as the highly successful GreenP0ison and Absinthe, both with the help of P0sixninja, one of the leaders of the team at the time. P0sixninja has since gone his own way and is busy working on his own things, including, it would seem an untethered iOS 7 jailbreak and, possibly, a bootrom jailbreak for iOS 7.
Right now, iOS 7 is on its second Beta and Beta 3 is expected to be released next week. At the moment, as is expected with Beta versions, quite a few issues are raising their heads, including random crashing and overheating. However, the firmware is not expected to be released until September so there should be plenty of time to sort them out.
One tweet was seen from the Chronic Dev. Team apparently saying that the untethered jailbreak would be delivered in March of next year. If this is true, it will be a disappointment to those who are waiting for it. Most people are hanging their hopes on the utility making an appearance not long after iOS 7 is released. They say that more announcements will be made but, as of yet, nothing further has been heard.
One question springs to mind – does this mean that P0sixninja has gone back to the team or are they going to try to muscle in work that he has completed on his own?
