Team evad3rs has just released evasi0n7 1.0.3 update for Mac OS X and Windows to fix the rampant boot loop issue with Retina iPad minis that were jailbroken on iOS 7. The new evasi0n7 update also adds support for iOS 7.1 beta 3, besides including a new Cydia package for enhanced compatibility with the latest jailbreak tweaks and apps.
The evasi0n7 1.0.3 release gains precedence as several Retina iPad mini users had earlier complained of getting their devices stuck in an endless boot loop after installing the evasi0n7 jailbreak. Consequently, they were forced to boot the device in recovery mode for a complete restoration.
According to Pod2g's latest Twitter update, those already running evasi0n7 1.0.2 without any issue on their devices no longer need to re-jailbreak with the latest evasi0n7 update. However, those facing boot loop issues with Retina iPad mini and those eager to explore iOS 7.1 beta 3 features can install the latest evasi0n7 1.0.3 jailbreak for OS X and Windows.
