EvasiOn iOS 7 jailbreak drops TaiG, a Chinese app store with pirated apps

EvasiOn group has posted a short letter announcing that it breaks all partnership with TaiG, a Chinese app store released with the iOS 7 jailbreak as the TaiG app store has many cracked and pirated apps.


EvasiOn said that they dropped the partnership and said that it was mistake and terminated the relationship with TaiG.

“We are very disappointed that they have decided to put up a cracked version of the jailbreak on their site that installs Taig. We did not give them any permission or source code.”

Previously, when the rumors and allegations of the Chinese company paying around $1 million to the EvasiOn broke up, the popular jailbreaking community agreed and said,

“Yes, we have benefitted financially from our work, just as many others in the jailbreak community have, including tweak developers, repo owners, etc. Any jailbreak from us will always be free to the users but we believe we have a right to be compensated in an ethical way, just as any other developer.”

But, in recent moves, Evad3rs said that they won’t accept the cash from the Chinese app store and already reverse-engineered their software to handle the issue. They have also said that they haven’t received any money from any group, including the TaiG and won’t accept any money. They have also stated that the EvasiOn’s donations being given to Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF), Public Knowledge and Free Information Infrastructure (FII) to keep the jailbreaking of iDevices as legal.

You could also jailbreak your latest iOS 7 running Apple iPad Air, iPhone 5s, iPhone 4s and other devices by downloading the software and following the instructions from the official website.
