Now you can jailbreak ios 7.0.4 on your iPhone 4 by using the limera1n jailbreak exploit that is still valid for iPhone 4 only on iOS 7. The tutorial below mentioned is not a perfect solution for most of the JB lovers because first of all it is tethered and poses the risk of a bunch of errors and glitches because the process itself is hectic. Secondly this is only compatible for iPhone 4 and people who are looking for a tool to jailbreak iOS 7.0.4 on iPhone 4S and later devices they are surprised to know why there is no jailbreak available for these devices. Actually injecting the limera1n exploit in iPhone 4 is only possible by using a script like they have done in RagebReak and it is not possible in A4 and superior devices due to more secure structure of their software and hardware components. In this procedure we put the device in DFU mode which is actually for iPhone 4, 3Gs and iPad only.
Why Only Jailbreak Released For iPhone 4 iOS 7
Since iPhone 4 can be upgraded to iOS 7 that is why they could only apply this exploit for tethered jailbreaking iOS 7 on iPhone 4. Also this jailbreak for ios 7 does not provide full fledged Cydia instead this is a modified version of Cydia which doesn’t offer full list of packages and sources and of course with some bugs as well. As you know iOS 7.1 beta is already seeded for developers and currently iOS 7.0.4 is running on most devices therefore we are expecting a fully working untethered jailbreak for 7.0.4 or iOS 7.1, and as per latest update from iH8sn0w the release was delayed due to some problems.
We have given below two seperate tutorials for Mac & Windows users and also two seperate video guides that are prepared by famous tech blogs or YouTubers.
