    It was just yesterday we were talking about Apple releasing iOS 8.1.2 as a security and bug-fixing update for its line of iOS devices, so we weren't expecting to be back so soon letting you know that the software has already been jailbroken, this iOS 8.1.2 jailbreak brought to you by team TaiG. Early indications from prominent jailbreakers after the update dropped were that the vulnerability TaiG used as a jailbreak injection mechanism had remained untouched, which meant that with just an update the team could make the jailbreak work with 8.1.2. TaiG has delivered on that today, with ...

    Jailbreaking iOS products used to be extremely popular before iOS 4, and that was mainly because the functionality that iOS provided to users before then was extremely limited. If you wanted to do basics like multi-tasking, or even having a notifications tray, your only solution was to jailbreak. Today the Jailbreak community is much smaller than it used to be, again since iOS has matured over the years, but if you're still in the mood to stretch your iPhone's capabilities, there are some good news for you. TaiG has just released a jailbreak that supports pretty much every iOS product ...

    Just like there's a daring community of users that can't live without rooting an Android phone, there's also another community that still believes in the need of an iOS Jailbreak. So far, jailbreaking devices isn't getting any easier, and at the same time, the community has slowly lost its importance as Apple keeps addressing the needs for people to Jailbreak. If you've accidentally upgraded your iOS device to iOS 8.1.1, there's hope for you, but with a catch. We now see a video that shows that iOS 8.1.1 has already been Jailbroken, something that shows that there is progress in the ...

    It has been entirely too long since we had the opportunity to talk about an iOS jailbreak, last touching base with jailbreak progress back when iOS 8 was still a developer beta. We've come a long way since then, with Apple releasing the iPhone 6, 6 Plus, iPad Air 2, and iPad mini 3, as well as making iOS 8 – and now iOS 8.1 – publicly available. Sometimes the arrival of new hardware and new software like that (not to mention new SoCs) can throw a spanner in the jailbreak works, derailing progress and sending devs back to square one. Fortunately, that doesn't seem to be what's happening ...

    Let's face it, Jailbreaking isn't as popular as it used to be, and that's mainly because a lot of what you couldn't do with your iPhone so many years ago, you can now do as Apple has polished its mobile operating system more and more. That said, there is still a vibrant community of hackers out there working hard, and even though iOS 8 is still months away from being launched, there is already progress in getting it Jailbroken. Famous hacker I0n1c tweeted yesterday that “initial tests show that iOS 8 beta does not fix anything,” which we assume refers to the existing iOS 7.1.1 ...

    Even though we're just a couple of weeks away from Apple's probable launch of iOS 8 at WWDC 2014, that doesn't mean that the Jailbreak community hasn't been hard at work at doing something about iOS 7.1.1. Ever since the launch of Apple's current mobile operating system, it wasn't possible for you to Jailbreak it through conventional and easy means. Today we do see some significant progress in the matter, but not necessarily for everyone. Today we've seen both photos and videos of iOS 7.1.1 being jailbroken on devices like the iPhone 5c and even the iPhone 4. iOS security researcher i0n1c ...

    Recently we saw how iOS 7.1 was jailbroken, but judging by the video that we caught, we understood that this was only applicable to the iPhone 4 running on Apple's legacy A4 chip. Obviously the difference in processor architecture poses an additional challenge to developers in finding exploits, and thus makes jailbreaking difficult across the the whole iOS line-up of products. Today we hear new progress for jailbreaking iOS 7.1 which we're sure will make many of you happy. In a response on Twitter, developer iH8sn0w confirmed that his iPhone 4s is Jailbroken on iOS 7.1. Given the fact ...

    Things haven't been the same lately when it comes to the iOS hacking community. Years ago people turned those developers that were able to crack Apple's code into famous movie stars, and lately all that has seemed to just fade away as iOS has evolved into solving the many complaints that gave people a reason to jailbreak. Still, the community exists, and even if Apple patched the exploit that allowed you to use Evasi0n on iOS 7.1, there's already progress in fixing that. Evasi0n is sadly still not ready to jailbreak iOS 7.1, but Winocm is apparently ready to work on Apple's new operating ...

    Even though Jailbreaking has become less and less popular with the launch of iOS 7, up to the point where even Cydia spent some time not being optimized for it, you could still do so with Evasi0n if you were running iOS 7.0.4. Sadly, if you're interested in keeping your Jailbreak for longer, things are about to get more complicated. We heard recently that Apple's iOS 7.1 beta 4 effectively patched the kernel in a way that would partially cripple Evasi0n, though there was still a way to do it. Sadly that ended today as the launch iOS 7.1 beta 5 shows us that aside from some Siri ...

    Windows Phone has been growing by leaps and bounds over the past few years, and for all the ways we've seen the platform mature, it still hasn't really picked up a vibrant underground dev community. While we've seen the availability of some custom ROMs, the platform's lacked an easily accessible, iOS-like jailbreak – or, at least not since Microsoft got to the ChevronWP7 guys. That may all soon be changing, as we see what sure appears to be a new jailbreak being demonstrated on the Lumia 920. The news comes from a Chinese group calling itself Poandsoul, which posted the video below to ...

    The end of the year in tech is already dominated by lists - best of, worst of, top 5, bottom 50 - you get the picture. So rather than foist another array of numeric bullet points upon you on our last podcast of the year, we've decided to dedicate this show to you, the listener ... and more specifically, to those of you who've written to us.

    Back in early February, the iOS homebrew community got what it had been waiting for since the iPhone 5 launched, with the evasi0n untethered jailbreak for iOS 6 devices. While that was great to see arrive, Apple eventually closed the holes the jailbreak needed to operate, effectively killing it off for users moving forward to more recent iOS builds. Now that the new iPhone models and iOS 7 are here, interest in a working jailbreak is once again heavy. While there's no clear sign just yet as to when something might be ready, some comments from an evad3rs team member sure gives us hope that ...
