Hacker Pod2g Says He is 'About to Switch to an Android Device'



Pod2g, the hacker who has been an integral part of the last few jailbreaks, has announced that he is 'about to switch to an Android device' after spending some time testing iOS 7.

After a few days of iOS 7 beta 1 testing, I must admit that I am about to switch to an Android device.

IMHO, this version of iOS is the worst move Apple did in a long time.

iOS 7 design is awful, it's slow, battery life time is the worst ever, it's full of UI bugs and crashes. OK it's beta 1, but still…

I am pretty disappointed by the features I've seen in iOS 7. No revolution here. No big news. Just kid painting.

Cydia Сounts 18 Million Jailbroken Devices in Six Weeks



Saurik reports that about 18 million devices were counted by Cydia in the last six weeks, between untethered jailbreak release and iOS 6.1.3 which blocks this jailbreak. According to Forbes:

In the six weeks since evasi0n was released, however, close to 18 million devices have already been jailbroken, according to data from Jay Freeman, the administrator of the Cydia app store for jailbroken devices. He says he’s counted 18.2 million unique devices running iOS 6 visiting Cydia, including 13.8 million iPhones, 3.4 million iPads, and 1.1 million iPod Touches. Those numbers vastly exceed previous jailbreaks such as Jailbreakme 3, a popular hacking tool for iOS released in the summer of 2011 that was used on around 2 million devices, according to a count at the time by creator Nicholas Allegra.

Evasi0n jailbreak is fixed in upcoming iOS 6.1.3



It looks like the vulnerabilities used for the evasi0n untethered jailbreak will be fixed in an upcoming iOS 6.1.3 update. PlanetBeing, one of the founding members of the evad3rs team that reports that Apple has patched at least one of the five exploits that evasi0n uses to accomplish the jailbreak.

"If one of the vulnerabilities doesn’t work, evasi0n doesn’t work," he says. "We could replace that part with a different vulnerability, but [Apple] will probably fix most if not all of the bugs we’ve used when 6.1.3 comes out."

Our advice? Just enjoy the jailbreak, back up your SHSH blobs in case a downgrade solution becomes available. And obviously if you like your jailbreak, stay away from iOS 6.1.3 once it is released.
