Cyberelevat0r: Untethered Jailbreak for iOS 7.1.1 [Video]



Good news for all jailbreakers: i0n1c has just posted a video showing his new utility for untethered jailbreak of iOS 7.1.1. It is called Cyberelevat0r and according to its creator, to jailbreak iOS 7.1.1 it uses a recently discovered kernel bug. Nobody knows for sure if the hacker plans to release Cyberelevat0r to public or not. Anyway, let’s take a look at how it works.

As noted by iClarified reporters,

The jailbreak, which has not yet been released, is unique in that it uses a kernel bug which is hidden inside functionality that can be easily reached, even from within the iOS application sandbox.

I honestly hope that i0n1c will release its untethered jailbreak of iOS 7.1.1. However, I don’t think that the release will take place before the release of Apple’s iOS 8. You see, the hackers need to make sure that the bug used for jailbreak remains unpatched.

Apple is expected to announce its iOS 8 at the annual Worldwide Developers Conference, which is set to take place in June. The jailbreak may be released after the conference.
