    Hey everyone,

    I've been dabbling in and out of jailbreaking over the past month. I used to be very engaged in jailbreaking news around a year ago, but got super busy :(

    Anyway, my retina iPad Mini is still on iOS 7.0.4, and I thought I'd jailbreak it for the first time. My question concerns the security of the most recent jailbreak. I remember around December or so, a major jailbreak came out for iOS7, but there was some controversy over the JB being linked to a Chinese company or something.

    Is the most recent jailbreak reputable? This is the one I'm looking at:

    Thanks in advance!

    You should be fine.

    That whole controversy was blown out of proportion anyway, IMO. But the envad3rs removed the Chinese version of Cydia due to the overwhelming response of the jailbreak community.

    I currently have my iPhone & iPad jailbroken. Just remember to back up and you'll be fine.

    If you got to 7.0.4 via an OTA update, the evasi0n jailbreak is likely to fail, sending your device into a boot loop.

    If you updated via iTunes, go for it.

    and also make sure to install SSLPatch from cydia when you jailbreak iOS 7.0.4; otherwise, you're safer updating to stock iOS 7.1.1 (if you're not going to jailbreak)

    there's an SSL bug in versions before iOS 7.0.6 (google it if you want to learn more about it)
