The full list of improvements is available below, take a look.

What’s New In Version 1.2:

  • Fix sandbox log issue.
  • afc2 is included now.
  • Add patch for task_for_pid.
  • Add notification if jailbreak fail.

It should be noted, however, that if the previous version of the jailbreaking tool works fine and if you haven’t got any problems with your device, you don’t have to update.

In case you don’t know, Pangu jailbreak is a utility that allows to jailbreak devices running iOS 7.1 and iOS 7.1.2.

You can download Pangu 1.2 for Windows and Mac OS from here. Our famous step-by-step instructions are available here.

The evad3rs on Friday released an updated evasi0n7 jailbreak utility. It is still impossible to jailbreak iPhone 5, 5c and 5s running iOS 7.1, however, evasi0n7 1.0.8 brings support for iOS 7.0 build 11A466.

11A466 is probably a factory build, which means it is not available for download. This iOS 7 version is installed primarily on new devices. For instance, one user says that iPhone 5s, which he got from Apple as a replacement for his damaged smartphone, is currently running iOS 7 build 11A466. He adds that he can’t jailbreak his new device.

As noted by iDownloadBlog,

At some point during the past week or so, the evad3rs released an update for evasi0n7, bringing the jailbreak tool to version 1.0.8. According to the change log, the software now supports build 11A466 of iOS 7.

The updated evasi0n7 jailbreak utility is available on the evad3rs’ official website. One can download it any time now.

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.

iphone4s jailbreak ios7.1 500x256 iH8Sn0w Confirms Untethered Jailbreak on iPhone 4s Running iOS 7.1

Following Winocm, who has recently posted a video showing the iOS 7.1 untethered jailbreak on iPhone 4, another hacker – iH8Sn0w – on Wednesday confirmed the successful jailbreak of his iPhone 4s running the same Apple’s iOS 7.1.

Here’s what he tweeted:

NGeary14: @iH8sn0w Can you jailbreak 7.1 iPhone 4s or only 4 ??

iH8Sn0w: @NGeary14 well my 4S is jailbroken on 7.1 atm.

Looks like it is possible to jailbreak any iOS device equipped with an Apple A4 or Apple A5 processor. As to the other iPhones and iPads, there’s no information yet.

iH8Sn0w claims that there won’t be any public jailbreak, at least now. That is why I recommend you to stay away from iOS 7.1. Especially if you have an iPhone 5/5c with Apple A6 CPU or iPhone 5s with Apple A7 CPU on board.

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.

As noted by iDownloadBlog,

Developer and hacker iH8sn0w tweeted out a few moments ago that Apple has fixed the ‘chown’ vulnerability and ‘afc sandbox escape’ used by the evad3r’s popular jailbreak utility in beta 5. So it looks like iOS 7.1 will indeed be the death of the iOS 7 JB.

Despite all the facts given above, it is too early to panic. So far, the evad3rs haven’t officially confirmed that the evasi0n7 won’t work on iOS 7.1. Apart from that, iH8sn0w has recently found a way to jailbreak A5 devices for good and this method might also work for A6 and A7 devices as well.

Nevertheless, it is recommended that you update to iOS 7.0.4 or iOS 7.0.5 and stay away from iOS 7.1 betas. At least for some time.

A new tweak has recently appeared on Cydia that lets you use your iPhone 5 or iPod touch to capture slow motion videos, even though these devices are believed to not support a slow motion mode. The tweak is called Slo-mo Mod and it is available for free on BigBoss repo.

Slo mo Mod 500x374 Capture Slow Motion Videos Using Slo mo Mod   New Cydia Tweak

As noted by iDownloadBlog,

One of the iPhone 5s’ flagship features, the Camera app’s baked-in slow motion mode, is now available to owners of older devices like the iPhone 5, and the iPod touch 5th generation. Slo-mo Mod is the jailbreak tweak that makes it so that slow motion mode is no longer an iPhone 5s exclusive.

The tweak can be customized and configured via Settings app. That means you can either turn Slo-mo Mod on or off or try to change some parameters to make the tweak work more efficient.

So, if you want to capture slow motion videos using your iPhone 5, iPhone 4s or iPod touch, Slo-mo Mod is definitely a worth downloading tweak.

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.

At the same time, the new version of the jailbreak utility for Mac – 1.0.3 – is coming soon. If you have any problems with 1.0.2, it is recommended that you update to 1.0.3 since it is more stable.

Don’t forget to make a backup before jailbreaking your device and remember you hack your smartphone or tablet at your own risk.

One can download p0sixspwn for both Mac (version 1.0.2) and Windows (version 1.0.4) here.

According to secret documents leaked by WikiLeaks not long ago, the White House has been in talks with other countries to make phone unlocking illegal by international law. And it is rather strange since in public the US government supports those who struggle for the legalization of unlocking.

As stated in the original report (via Slate):

Last week, WikiLeaks made public a portion of a treaty that the White House has been secretly negotiating with other nations and 600 special interest lobbyists. The draft of the Trans-Pacific Partnership Treaty, which is on intellectual property, shows that HealthCare.gov isn’t the only tech topic on which the Obama administration has some serious explaining to do.

What’s even worse, is that the new treaty will also make jailbreaking, which is installing a different operating system on your smartphone, tablet, or e-reader, illegal, too.

This treaty is still being negotiated, so all of these issues could be addressed in the final text, but so far what has been made public demonstrates a massive and nearly unprecedented power grab by special interests rather than sound public policy considerations.

Let’s hope for the best and wait to see what happens.

If you use a jailbroken iPhone 5, then this article will be interesting for you. Yesterday, a hacker with a nickname winocm announced that he had successfully jailbroken iOS 6.1.4 on his iPhone 5. And this is crucial since this is the first time this firmware version was hacked.

As you can see on the image above, the new jailbreak was tested on both GSM and CDMA models of the iPhone 5. It is also said to be compatible with the iPhone 4S, however, I have no idea whether this jailbreak will work with the iPhone 4.

According to Cody Lee of iDownloadBlog:

Winocm has been very busy lately, announcing and demonstrating his jailbreak for iOS 6.1.3—which we went hands on with last week—and now this. His progress is good news for folks who lost their jailbreak upgrading past iOS 6.1.2

Well, that’s all I wanted to say.

One of the most interesting Samsung Galaxy S4’s features is probably Smart Pause. This is the feature that automatically pauses video playback each time you look away. For quite a long period of time those who use iPhones had to put up with the fact that there’s nothing similar for the iOS platform. And then FaceHalt was released.

pod2g 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.

This would be a terrible blow to the jailbreak community. Hopefully, he sticks around a bit longer and Apple addresses user concerns in its upcoming betas.
