A new version of the Pangu jailbreaking utility has been released today. According to its developers, Pangu 1.2 contains a wide number of improvements and bug fixes aimed at addressing the issues connected with AFC2, sandbox and other features of this utility for jailbreak.
The full list of improvements is available below, take a look.
A new jailbreaktweak for all those who like listening to music using their iPhone has been recently released on Cydia. It enables an equalizer on your device and allows to create presets for different music types stored on your iPhone. This tweak is called EqualizerEverywhere and I must admit, it is very intuitive and easy-to-use.
EqualizerEverywhere is a recently released jailbreak tweak that makes it possible to create and activate custom equalizer presets on the fly. If you’re someone who listens to a variety of different audio types on the iPhone, and you’re looking for a way to customize sound based on the type of audio, this is a tweak that you should definitely investigate.
Once you download and install the tweak, you will notice a new section in the Setting app, where you can adjust EqualizerEverywhere and make it do what you want.
It should be noted, however, that this tweak has one drawback. This drawback is its price, which is $3.00. Still, I will certainly recommend music lovers to purchase this tweak.
The Pangu team has updated iOS 7.1.1untethered jailbreak utility to version 1.1.0. They added support for Mac OS X and English version, fixed several bugs (including boot loop bug) and removed the ability to install pirate appstore (PPSync) from English version. Unfortunately to jailbreak community they also used another new exploit instead of i0n1c’s one used in v.1.0. This is no good, since Apple might both in iOS 8 or even iOS 7.1.2.
What’s New In This Version:
1. Add English support.
2. Optimize the file size.
3. Fix the boot loop bug.
4. Using new info leak bug instead of @i0n1c’s
5. Add online self verification
If you successfully jailbroke your iOS 7.1.x device before using Pangu, then there is no reason for you to do anything at this time. If however you’ve been having issues, it might be a smart thing to do to restore and try again with Pangu 1.1.0.
You can download Pangu 1.1 for Windows and Mac OS from here. Our famous step-by-step instructions are available here.
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.”
We have tried Pangu and confirm that the utility does in fact jailbreaks your device. Beware that there might be security risks, Chineese hackers are known for embedding trojans and spyware into utilities.
iH8Sn0w confirms that there is no spyware:
Aside from the piracy store and enterprise certificate… The http://pangu.io jailbreak does not have “spyware” or malicious trails.
You can download Pangu 1.0 for Windows from here. Our famous step-by-step instructions are available here.
There is a checkbox in the utility. If you leave it checked, a piracy app store will be installed. If you do not support piracy, uncheck the box before attempting a jailbreak.
After initial signs pointed towards a good chance that iOS 8 was jailbreakable, famous hacker Stefan Esser (nickname i0n1c), tweeted an image that shows off the ability to SSH into an iPod touch running iOS 8 from his Mac, which basically means he has successfully jailbroken iOS 8 on iPod Touch 5G.
I just leave this here …
There is no information whether i0n1c will release a public jailbreak. Anyway, It would be logical to wait until iOS 8 is officially released so as to not burn any exploits.
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.
Last month, i0n1c announced his jailbreak for iOS 7.1.1. Looks like the same utility will be able to hack the devices running iOS 8. However, I don’t think Esser or any other hacker will release a jailbreak for iOS 7.1.1 or iOS 8 now. You see, this may help Apple to fix the vulnerability used for jailbreaking. This is definitely not the thing we all need, right?
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.
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.
Earlier this week it was reported that iOS 7 doesn’t encrypt email attachments, though it should. The only possible way out was not to detach important or confidential files to emails, but fortunately, another one appeared on Wednesday.
A developer named Ryan Petrich released a new jailbreaktweak that helps to fix the email encryption issue. This tweak is called ‘Attachment Encryptor’.
Here’s what iDownloadBlog reporters write about Petrich’s creation:
Prominent jailbreak developer Ryan Petrich released ‘Attachment Encryptor’ this evening, a tweak that patches the aforementioned bug. All you have to do is install it and respring your iPhone or iPad.
The tweak is available for free via Petrich’s beta repo. You can add it by entering ‘Manage’ tab in Cydia and hitting Sources and Add sections. After you select the last menu, you need to enter http://rpetri.ch/repo/. That’s all.
I honestly hope that Apple will fix the issue in the next iOS version.
