It's Sunday today, so looks like it is time to talk about the most interesting stories of the past seven days. Let's begin right now.
Good news for all jailbreakers - looks like Apple’s new iOS 8 is jailbreakable. According to what security expert Stefan Esser (aka i0n1c) has tweeted a couple of hours ago, the guys from Cupertino haven’t fixed the kernel bug used to jailbreak iOS-devices. This means that immediately after the public release of iOS 8 we may have a jailbreak for it.
Apple has announced its long-anticipated iOS 8. In this short post I’ll try to give you an idea about what new features the guys from Cupertino have added to their operating system for iPhone and iPad. So, let’s start.
Like every Sunday, I’d like to tell you about the most interesting posts of the last seven days. Let’s start.
Good news for all those who plan to buy a new Mac Pro. For the first time since its debut in December, the ship times have fallen to 3-5 business days.

The week has nearly come to an end, so looks like it’s time for me to tell you about the most interesting posts of the past seven days. Let’s start.
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
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 and Google have decided to stop the patent war.
