Evad3rs Achieve Unsigned Userland Code Execution on iOS 7





Famous hacker Planetbeing, member of Evad3rs team, posted an update regarding team's iOS 7 jailbreak progress. They've achieved one important step - unsigned userland code execution. Basically this means that they've got behind Apple's walls of security and now can poke at the kernel. Bugs found in the kernel could be used to create a jailbreak for the new operating system.

Achieved unsigned userland code execution with some of our stuff in reserve. Now we have a good platform for poking the kernel.

P0sixninja plans to create OpenJailbreak



Hacker p0sixninja (Joshua Hill) tweeted that he plans to create OpenJailbreak, a new repository of open source jailbreak components on Twitter earlier today.

Ok, I hate redsn0w, I hate sn0wbreeze, and I hate 6.1.3. I'm ready to get this #openjailbreak off the ground

Elaborating further he told:

Essentially it’s going to be a repository of open source jailbreak components that I created over the years. So much of my code has been hacked up and incorporated into other projects, it’s becoming very fragmented. There’s no central repository to maintain all this code, to allow other developers to submit patches or help layout a roadmap for what new features and abilities will be added in the future.

iOS 7 has been jailbroken. Popular iOS developer Ryan Petrich has posted a screenshot which appears to show Activator running on iOS 7.

System Version Too New
Activator has not been tested to work with this version of iOS. Some features may not work as designed.

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.

You Can Update to iOS 7 Without a Registered iPhone UDID



It's currently possible update to iOS 7 beta without having your iPhone's UDID registered in an Apple developer account.

We have tested and confirmed it working on the iPhone 4S, a brand new iPhone 5 and an additional iPhone 5.

To perform the update you must get a hold of the iOS 7 ipsw, press and hold the Option key (Shift for Windows) and click Update in iTunes. Select the iOS 7 ipsw from the popup window to install.

It's unclear why this is working. Only iPhone devices registered by developers are supposed to be able to install beta firmware. Perhaps Apple took down this check since its servers are being flooded at the moment.
