    On Thursday, Apple released iOS 7.0.2 to the public. iOS 7.0.2 is one of the three additional software updates that were found to be in testing along with iOS 7.0.1 (iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c only) and iOS 7.1 (still unreleased).

    iOS 7.0.2 is a small update for iOS 7 devices that fixes one of the known lock screen bypass glitches. In addition, it re-introduces the Greek keyboard option for entering passcodes.

    At this point in time, the evad3rs are confident in a jailbreak for iOS 7.0, but they have not yet commented on the status of iOS 7.0.2. We expect that Apple, being themselves as usual, probably tucked some security updates in iOS 7.0.2. We would recommend holding off until the evad3rs have had a chance to check out the firmware.

    On the other hand, if getting rid of the potentially harmful lock screen glitch is at the top of your priority list right now, then iOS 7.0.2 is available OTA (over the air) in the Settings application under the Software Update cell. You can also use iTunes if you prefer.

    Wow...not wasting any time I see. I'll hold off on that update on my iPhone 5. I have a 5C coming. I hope it ships with 7.0 and not 7.0.2

    Right meow?

    As for the update, I'm sure Apple didn't have time to fix any potential JB holes that the evad3rs are looking at unless they have been posting info on that website..

    Might as well update. The evaders will have a jailbreak for the most current version of ios when they release the jailbreak.

    Any word on if the jailbrake for 7.0 would work on the iPhone 5s 7.0.1?

    It gets automatically turned on, it makes it available for airdroping, I just learned that airdrop requires the use of bluetooth and wifi.

    I'm gambling on the same logic, went ahead and updated to 7.0.2

    I miss jailbreak less and less every year with the new features added. (I'm not suffering with out it, but still want it)

    In general, Jailbreaks have to be for current iOS versions that are STILL BEING SIGNED by Apple. Im sure Apple will stop signing the 7.0 and only be signing 7.02 soon enough. Am I wrong? Seems to be the pattern...

    Nope JB has nothing to do with signing
    Signing is when you reinstall the IOS
    Most people hold off on updating (Restoring) there currently jailbroken device until Jailbreak is released. Now you get me?

    I know airdrop uses it...but I had it turned off before...I'm sure all these other folks did too...just a simple thing to turn back off, just dumb...

    I doubt Apple fixed any security holes that could lead to a jailbreak. They aren't going to sift through hundreds of thousands (if not, millions) of lines of code just to patch a jailbreak exploit that hasn't even been exploited, yet. They probably don't even have knowledge of any of the exploits iOS 7 may have.

    This really doesn't concern me. Evad3rs are good at what they do and I have faith they can JB any update before they launch 7.1 but will save it for after that. But I really don't need one all that much anymore so I can wait however long it takes now.
