You may have read the story about the iOS7 jailbreak by Evad3rs team and the Chinese iOS app store TaiG Assistant. Of all the issues, piracy seems the intolerable to Evad3rs that a representative of the team said they decided to remotely disable the default installation of TaiG in China.

But it seems nothing can hinder TaiG from expanding in China market for jailbreaking as the company is about to release a jailbreak by themselves within one week, Xie Lei, CEO of Kuaiyong and lead of TaiG said at a press conference yesterday afternoon. TaiG would end partnership with Evad3rs, he added. (via cnBeta) It’s also rumored that Kuaiyong is figuring a hardware-related solution that would “disrupt Apple devices”.

Kuaiyong claims it has signed letters of intent on business cooperation with major Chinese Internet companies, Baidu, Sogou, Taobao, and a handful of gaming companies (Boyaa, Rekoo, Playcrab, Zshouyou and FL Mobile). As we discussed yesterday, Chinese companies would very much like to work with a company that can reach jailbroken iOS device users with an app store or, even better, a jailbreak.

At the press conference, the company also responded to the controversial issues related to the Evad3rs partnership that 1) no money is involved in the partnership with Evad3rs and 2) pirated apps were automatically indexed by TaiG Assistant, not by selection.
