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.

iOS 6.1 Jailbreak to Support All 22 Device Variations



MuscleNerd, a popular hacker and member of the evad3rs, has revealed that the upcoming iOS 6.1 jailbreak will support all 22 device variations and likely the atv2.

@MuscleNerd is every other device supported?

@unicornhacker yes, every other 6.1 device variation will be supported. All TWENTY-TWO of them (omg!). Plus atv2 if it's out in time.

Unfortunately, with the exploit that's being used, the Apple TV 3 will not be supported.

@MuscleNerd @evad3rs_jb So those of us with atv3 still have to wait for a bootrom

@arovik not necessarily. Although atv3 uses far fewer services that can be tampered with, it's not isolated. But it can't use this next JB

The iPad 4 Has Been Jailbroken



Chpwn has posted an image showing Cydia running on a jailbroken iPad 4.

It doesn't look any different than on the iPad (3rd generation), but here's Cydia running on the iPad (4th generation): pic.twitter.com/zhrii6uX

Recently, MuscleNerd posted to show that the jailbreak discovered by chpwn was working for the iPad mini.

Last month, chpwn revealed that his jailbreak would be reserved as a failbreak. That means it will be limited to jailbreak developers and won't be released to the public. This is being done to make it easier to discover new exploits (which will be used for public release) in the future.

Video of the Absinthe 2.0 Jailbreak announcement at HITB



Take a look at the video from RedmondPie of the Chronic Dev-Team announcing Absinthe 2.0 at HITB:

For those who didn't follow the conference, or get caught up in the excitement that surrounded it, the 'one more thing' bomb-shell was related to the fact that the Dream Team used their presence at the security event to officially introduce the world to the v2.0 release of their one-click Absinthe jailbreak solution. After months of hard work and exploit finding, mixed with weeks of will-they-won't-they speculation, it turns out that they indeed did introduce us to Absinthe 2.0.

Our instructions how to jailbreak your device using Absinthe are available here.
