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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
