But the problem has started when thousand of Apple users, jailbroken their device and found a large portion of Cydia tweaks not working on iOS 7. Some of the apps are working on it, here is the list. The main purpose of jailbreak vanishes, because of tweaks not working on it. It will take some time to get updates for important apps and tweaks in cydia store. Everything depends upon time and tweak developers. Let’s see how much time they will take to update their apps. But here is a question arises, didn’t evad3rs tested this jailbreak before launch? If they knew that tweaks aren’t working on iDevices, then why they launched it? Jailbreak for iOS 7.1/7.1.1 is also available for iOS devices, below are links to jailbreak and remove jailbreak:
I have also done the jailbreak on my iPhone and it’s really annoying, because a simple winterboard themes’ app is not working on my iPhone. The apps running on it currently, are not much salient, below are some apps not working on jailbroken iOS 7 devices:

You can get a bumpy idea from the above list that, currently how useless this jailbreak is. I don’t know why evad3rs launched it in hurry.

Step 1: First you are required to download iOS IPSW firmware directly to your PC. Download Latest iOS firmware from here.
For iPhone 4 Users, who don’t have support for iOS 8 or higher, will use the iOS 7.1.2 links.
Step 2: Get the latest version of iTunes and install it on your PC.
Step 3: Connect your iDevice via USB cable to your PC, and open iTunes.
