How to Jailbreak the iPad Air and Other iOS 7 Devices

An untethered iOS 7 jailbreak is officially here, but its release is surrounded by a bit of mystery and controversy. It was previously reported that evasi0n 7 was released in haste in response to a report that someone close to the evad3rs had stolen the jailbreak and sold it to a private buyer. Soon after its release, Cydia app store creator Jay Freeman (@saurik) tweeted that he didn't have a chance to test Cydia on evasi0n 7, and he warned users to use it at their own risk.

A few hours after its release, complaints started popping up on Reddit that evasi0n 7 included the Chinese App Store Taig and a unofficial version of Cydia. This did not sit well with the jailbreaking community, which prompted the evad3rs to issue a written response to clear up the rumors. You can read the evad3rs full explanation of the events here.

UPDATE: Here's the latest tweet from @pod2g regarding the default TaiG installation in China.
