At the tail-end of last year, we presented a guide that showed jailbroken iOS 7 users how to utilize the Cydia Store for the purpose of speeding up their devices. But if you don’t, for whatever reason, happen to have introduced your device to the wonders of Evasi0n, we’ve outlined a few tips that could help you speed up your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch running stock firmware, specifically for hardware that is old, like the iPhone 4, 4s, etc.

Back when iOS 7.1 first released, it quickly became apparent that the Evasi0n exploit had been patched by Apple, and as such, those wishing to preserve their jailbreak should stick with a pre-iOS 7.1 firmware. Shortly after Apple dropped the first significant update to its mobile firmware, seasoned hacker Winocm revealed that he had managed to jailbreak an iPhone 4 untethered on iOS 7.1, and now, fellow iOS security expert iH8sn0w has done likewise for the iPhone 4s (A5).

Apple’s recent introduction of iOS 7.1 plugged jailbreak exploits that made the previous Evasi0n untethered jailbreak possible, and as such, jailbreakers have had to either stick with a preceding iOS 7.0.x release, or upgrade and forgo their access to Cydia. However, even though the pre-iOS 7.1 efforts by the Evad3rs team were commendable, it doesn’t mean that the hard work has ceased, and seasoned hacker Winocm has just posted a video of iOS 7.1 booting untethered.
