For novice users of devices like the iPhone, iPod touch and the iPad who have heard a lot about how breaking that barrier of the device is possible for changing those settings that have been set at factory can now rejoice as they now have an easy tool at hand to accomplish just that. Evasion 7 is the name of the tool and the developer is Team Evad3rs. Using this tool, even novice users would be able to break into their devices which also include those that run on Windows or OS X or even Linux. Jail breaking as the term is commonly known as would give access to those settings which in normal sense are not available to the user. The best part of jail breaking the device using this tool is that the user would be able to get back to the original factory settings whenever required or desired at any point of time.
While reverting back to the original state is possible that does not mean the data would also be reverted back after the jail break operation. It is therefore to be borne in mind that backing up of data prior undertaking the jail breaking operation is a must. However, when running the tool, user would need to connect the device to a PC that is running Windows XP or higher, OS X and Linux.
After the jailbreak, users would be able to get access to Cydia app store which hosts those apps that could only work on devices that have been jailbroken. Jay Freeman the developer at Cydia has also mentioned that as of now the site does not host apps that would run on iOS 7 even if the OS be running on a jailbroken device. They are adding this functionality is what he has stated.
Why would someone like to jail break their device? There are certain functionalities like support for keyboards that are not tied to only those specified by the maker of the device. Users may also want to change the default apps that run on their device or even change the screen appearance of their device. Users who want to lock their screen itself in a different manner would also resort to jail breaking as this is not allowed in the factory default settings.
