According to Tools4Hack the Pangu Team has demonstrated a iOS 8.3 jailbreak at the MOSEC security conference in Shanghai. The Japanese reporter is hopeful that we could see the team release a jailbreak once iOS 8.4 drops.
Pod2g confirmed that the Evad3rs Dev-Team is ready with a jailbreak for iOS 6.1 and credits Planetbeing and Pimskeks for the accomplishment in an interview with iDigitalTimes.
"For your information and this is important to me that everybody knows about it also, this jailbreak will be @planetbeing and @pimskeks. I arrived at the end, gave ideas that pushed them to their maximum, I kinda unblocked the situation, but it would certainly have happened without me helping."
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.
Tomorrow is the first conference day at famous hacker event HITBSecConf2012. The conference schedule shows that Chronic Team members Joshua Hill (@p0sixninja), Cyril (@pod2g), Nikias Bassen (@pimskeks) and David Wang (@planetbeing) will speak about Corona jailbreak and Absinthe jailbreak for iOS 5.0.1. iPhone Dev-Team member MuscleNerd will speak about "Evolution of the iPhone Baseband and Unlocks".
The iOS 5.1.1 untethered jailbreak is rumored to be announced during this conference during Chronic Dev Team keynote. Stay tuned.
