Luca Todesco has successfully jailbroken iOS 10. Below you can take a look at the video showing the process of jailbreak as well as the iPad running the latest iOS 10 beta and Cydia. The tool used to hack the device is called yaluX and is compatible with 64-bit devices i.e. those with the A7 processor or newer on board.
The Pangu team has recently demonstrated the untethered jailbreak of iOS 10. Unlike iH8Sn0w, who teased the jailbreak compatible only with older devices like the iPhone 5, the Chinese developers showed their jailbreak on the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s that both feature new hardware. This means that the hackers used the exploits that are different from those utilized by iH8Sn0w earlier this year.
A well-known hacker nicknamed iH8sn0w has successfully jailbroken iOS 10 beta that was released to developers last Monday. This means that Apple hasn’t patched all exploits that could be used to hack the devices running the latest version of company’s mobile operating system. Below you can take a look at the video showing a jailbroken iPhone 5 running iOS 10.
Even though Apple has patched a number of vulnerabilities used for untethered jailbreak of iOS 8.4, looks like there's still a lot of work to be done about the security of iOS 9 that is expected to be released to public next week. As shown in the video that has been posted by a well-known hacker nicknamed iH8sn0w, iOS 9 is jailbreakable. The developer and author of such tools as sn0wbreeze and iFaith has perfectly demonstrated his jailbreak, which means we may soon see a new tool for hacking iOS 9. The video proving the aforementioned rumor is available below.
Good news for all the users of jailbroken iOS-devices, who don't want to lose their jailbreak after upgrading to iOS 8.1.1. iH8Sn0w and XanderKitteh have recently successfully jailbroken iOS 8.1.1 and posted the video of the process to YouTube. In a short video you may see an iPad running Cydia with untethered jailbreak.
UPDATE: It works on iOS 7.1.2 as well!
Today a team of Chinese hackers have released an untethered jailbreak of iOS 7.1.1. The utility is called Pangu.
Currently a jailbreak utility is only available for Windows users.
The team credits famous hacker i0n1c, who introduced the infoleak bug during his training. By the way i0n1c has said, "if pangu team releases a public jailbreak with vulnerabilities disclosed to them during my training I consider this in no way okay."
Like every Sunday, I’ve come up with a list of most interesting stories of the last 7 days. Without wasting time, let’s take a look at these posts.
I’ve got some good news for those iPhone 4s users, who plan to jailbreak their iPhones running iOS 7.1. It is possible to hack the older models of Apple’s smartphones. However, it doesn’t necessarily mean that you should upgrade to the latest version of iOS right now. And here’s why.
Good news for all iPhone 3G and iPod touch 4G owners - a jailbreak tool called p0sixspwn has been updated to support the recently released iOS 6.1.6. Using this small utility, you can perform an untethered jailbreak effortless.
The company from Cupertino will release the final version of its iOS 7.1 to the public no sooner than in March. Apart from the new mobile operating system, Apple is expected to unveil the next-generation Apple TV.
Looks like Apple has found a way to prevent people from jailbreaking their iOS devices. According to iH8sn0w, iOS 7.1 beta 5, released on Tuesday, patches two exploits used to jailbreak Apple’s smartphones and tablets. Keep in mind that the fourth beta patched another vulnerability used by evasi0n7. It appears that beginning from iOS 7.1, it would be impossible to hack your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. And that is definitely not good.
Looks like it is possible to make any A5(X) device jailbreakable once and forever. Well, at least this is what iH8sn0w tweeted yesterday. What this all means is that your iPhone 4S, iPad 2, iPad 3, iPad mini, Apple TV 3G, and iPod touch 5G can be jailbroken literally for life.
Do not expect iOS 7.1 jailbreak soon. Apple has reportedly blocked the kernel exploit used by the evasi0n 7 jailbreak utility. According to iH8sn0w the exploit was blocked in the recent iOS 7.1b4 firmware:
So the code sign bug that evasi0n7 uses still exists in 7.1b4. Kernel exploit looks patched though
meaning… Don’t expect an evasi0n7 update for 7.1b4+ support.
According to iH8sn0w, iOS 7.1 beta 3 doesn’t patch evasi0n7 untethered jailbreak. The hacker, however, thinks that in the next beta Apple will surely patch the exploits.
The p0sixspwn untethered jailbreak for iOS 6.1.3 - 6.1.5 was updated on January 5th to version 1.0.5. The updated jailbreak tool is available for both Macs and Windows-based computers. It features OS X Snow Leopard support, several bugfixes and a number of other improvements. The update was announced by one of the hackers that created p0sixspwn - iH8Sn0w - on Twitter:
