    Chinese is trying to take the credit for making the jailbreak while evasi0n was the one.

    There's also the part where evaders were able to remotely disable TaiG which raises some concerns.

    The Chinese App Store TaiG was being installed with all Chinese versions of iOS. There are rumors of TaiG collecting information and sending it back to China. Although Evaders claim this only affected Chinese devices, there are some traces of them on other devices.

    TaiG also has plenty of pirated apps which pod2g is upset about.

    First off, this was a rushed version of the iOS 7 Jailbreak. They pushed it so quick onto the web to beat the other "hackers" so they could keep the $1,000,000 TaiG paid them. They didn't even wait for the iOS 7 Cydia was released, they just made a hotfix so it runs but isn't optimized. Second, there is no outbound traffic from any non-Chinese devices, and still no proof that there is outbound traffic on the Chinese devices either. It seems TaiG is being funded though by one of China's biggest internet service providers, that could explain where the $1,000,000 paid to a opensource jailbreaking team came from. Leave it up to China to infringe on people's rights and invade their property just to be top on the market. evad3rs' team already pulled that bit of source out of the jailbreak, and TaiG will not be installed on any device that uses their jailbreak any longer.

    The million dollar deal was thrown out there by saurik. Currently, there is no proof that any actual money was exchanged between the groups. pod2g has also been refuting the claims. Second, there was an iOS 7 Cydia in the works, which the evad3rs supposedly had access to. They choose not to release the jailbreak with it. There's been no proof of outbound traffic from any non-Chinese devices; however, there are traces of it that could possibly happen. There is proof that there has been outbound traffic from Chinese devices after suspicious DNS modifications; however, there is no evidence of personal data being transferred.

    Lastly, evasi0n has been updated to 1.0.1 which removes the function of TaiG being installed on the device.

    There was inbound traffic, that was the evad3rs repository for the jailbreak deleting the source for the TaiG app. All jailbreaks can be remotely controlled this way, just to let you know.

    LOL at apple users saying they're invincible.

    Where's your god now?

    "Religions are, by definition, metaphors, after all: God is a dream, a hope, a woman, an ironist, a father, a city, a house of many rooms, a watchmaker who left his prize chronometer in the desert, someone who loves you—even, perhaps, against all evidence, a celestial being whose only interest is to make sure your football team, army, business, or marriage thrives, prospers, and triumphs over all opposition. Religions are places to stand and look and act, vantage points from which to view the world. So none of this is happening. Such things could not occur. Never a word of it is literally true.”
