The unofficial modified version of evasi0n7 jailbreak tool has been making waves on the internet ever since the release of iOS 7.1 Beta 3 update from Apple. The new iOS update is reportedly jailbreakable using the unofficial evasi0n7 tool as the latest official version of evasi0n7 seems to be unsupported.
The official version of evasi0n7 is found to result in an error message while trying to jailbreak the newly released iOS 7.1 Beta 3 update. The error message states: "Sorry, the version of iOS (11D5127c) of the attached device is not supported."

In addition, several redditors have confirmed that the unofficial jailbreak works as intended, and its creator (with Twitter handle @EveryApplesPro) has released a video tutorial depicting the installation process and first look at iOS 7.1 Beta 3 jailbroken device.
