News tagged ‘tethered’
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 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.
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.
It’s Sunday again, so I’ve decided to take a brief look at the most interesting posts of the last week. Let’s not waste time on senseless introductions and talk about recent Apple news right now.
Winocm has posted a video demonstrating an untethered jailbreak of iOS 7.1 on a Verizon iPhone 4 (n92).
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.
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.
The evad3rs have just released a new version of their jailbreak tool - evasi0n7 1.0.4, which is expected to bring numerous security improvements to the iOS 7 jailbreak.
It’s Sunday today, so I’ve decided to gather some of the most interesting stories of the past 7 days and bring them to you in this post.
This week’s top stories deal with jailbreak, Apple’s new iPhone 6 that is expected to be launched in 2014 and the purported iWatch release. You can take a look at the most interesting articles below.
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:
As you probably know, a few days ago iH8sn0w, winocm and SquiffyPwn have released an untethered jailbreak for smartphones and tablets running iOS 6.1.3 - 6.1.5 - p0sixspwn. At first it was available only for Mac users, however, things have changed. Yes, you’ve got that right, p0sixspwn (version 1.0.4) for Windows is finally out.
As you probably know, not long ago evad3rs released their untethered jailbreak for iOS 7. Right after the release, many iPad 2 owners began to complain that their tablets won’t boot properly. Good news - the hackers came up with a fix for the problem; it is called Evasi0n 1.0.2 and it’s a beta that is said to be very helpful for all those who have problems with second-gen iPads (Wi-Fi models in particular).
It’s Sunday now, the week nearly came to an end, so I guess it’s time to take a brief look at the most popular stories of the past seven days.
There were many events, but I don’t think it would be very smart of me to retell all of them in this short post. Instead of doing this, I’ve picked 10 most popular stories in case you haven’t yet read them and put these bits together for you to take a look. Enjoy!
