    Hey all!

    So, you've most likely noticed the writers aren't on the front page anymore, as of 12/31. We've sadly had to make the decision to pull paid writers, and will be reimagining the front page starting this week. Cody and I have loved having Anthony, Shay, and Michael helping us share the news for many years, and will miss them. Thanks for all your support of our amazing writers!

    This post marks the 20,000th article on ModMyi.com - a huge milestone! We've been writing on iOS customization since before the iPhone came out (June 6th, 2007 to be precise!). Some of you have been there since the ...

    The Pangu team has released a Windows-only jailbreak for iOS 8.1 (but with a caveat which we'll get to in a second). It took just 35 days from the release of iOS 8 to be jailbroken - a huge improvement from the nearly 5 months iOS 7 took to jailbreak.

    The big caveat - it's SSH only right now. Meaning Cydia is not installed with the jailbreak. However, this should ...

    Surenix (aka Thientam Bach) just announced his new tweak Auki, during a presentation at JailbreakCon. He bills it as all of the above - quite a bit. Benno Krauss was the developer who worked with him to create it. Auki is essentially a quick reply feature for messaging, as well as an easy way to silence individual conversations or people in messages.

    It's available ...

    The 2014 Jailbreak Con (#WWJC was trending earlier!) is full swing underway, and it's a really great experience!

    Today has consisted of morning workshops, lunch, and an interesting series of "mini talks" - 5-15 minute small talks on various jailbreaking subjects. @bd452, a newer developer, spoke about his libPassword and upcoming tweak ZenNotifications, ...

    Early Christmas Eve, saurik released version 1.1.9 of Cydia, which gets Cydia fully working on iOS 2-7. Although under the hood it's seen changes to run smoothly on iOS 7, the most obvious update is Cydia's visual change to iOS 7's style.

    The visual overhaul receives a thank you from saurik to a few people: Surenix for the new tab bar icons, myself for the UI images (icons!), and Ryan Petrich for general UIKit help. And to Optimo for late night testing.

    tl;dr - evasi0n7 successfully jailbreaks iOS 7 devices (untethered), installs a Chinese app store for Chinese users which has some piracy issues, evad3rs were paid to bundle that app (TaiG), two separate teams were working on a jailbreak, and Mobile Substrate and jailbreak tweaks should be updated and working within a week or two, but devs are frustrated.

    Early on the Sunday before Christmas, an iOS 7 jailbreak was released, carrying the moniker evasi0n7.




    It was a sudden release - the evad3rs' (the team who release the jailbreak) last tweet had been 53 days previous, saying they were working on the iOS 7 jailbreak... and hoodies. We published an ...
