cydia 1 169x300 Cydia Update 1.1.14 released with bug fixes cydia 2 169x300 Cydia Update 1.1.14 released with bug fixes cydia 3 169x300 Cydia Update 1.1.14 released with bug fixes

Saurik has just released an update to Cydia that brings us one step closer to a stable jailbreak.

Cydia 1.1.14 no longer causes your device to lock up while booting on iOS 8 when you use a passcode. If you have installed unsupported modifications you may want to restore and jailbreak again, as those modifications are not supported.

Here’s what’s new:

Multitasking Support on iOS 8:
Cydia now backgrounds almost like a regular application (but only on iOS 8). This has been a major architectural change: please alert us to any issues.

This allows you to switch back/forth between Cydia and other applications (Such as Safari, or the Google two-factor authentication app) without losing your package selection state.

New Window and Hijack Blocking:
One of the biggest complaints about Cydia in the last year has been a new kind of ad seen on some repositories: a sudden redirect to the App Store.

Cydia now blocks “popups” and asks the user before opening the App Store.

Partial iPhone 6 Plus Support:
Cydia supports rotation on the iPhone 6 Plus and has a new @3x icon and tabbar. Cydia renders at the native resolution on both the 6 and 6 Plus.

Videos Work Again (on iOS 7.1-8.1):
Cydia on iOS 7.1 had an issue where playing video would cause the device to “lock up”. This bug has finally been fixed! The new iOS 8 video issue (a YouTube error message) is also fixed.

Localization Works Now on iOS 8:
Users of Cydia 1.1.13 (only available via a manual installation process) may have noticed Cydia only displayed in English :( . This has been fixed! Yay!

Queue Status is “Less Incorrect”:
Sometimes Cydia would not have packages queued but claim it did, or would have packages queued and claim it did not; this happens less ;P.

Saurik also notes that there are still some issues specific to iOS 8.

“When installing packages that put icons on SpringBoard, the icons may not appear. Rebooting might make them appear. This is because our ‘uicache’ tool, which refreshes icons, has not yet been updated for iOS 8. We are working on this, and a fix will come later as part of the UIKit Tools package as soon as we can manage.”

Hopefully now that the major passcode issue has been resolved, we may see a stable release of the Pangu jailbreak utility with Cydia.

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.

evasi0n 429x400 The iOS 6.1 Untethered Jailbreak is Called Evasi0n

The Evad3rs Dev-Team has launched an official website for the jailbreak of iOS 6.1, called ‘Evasi0n’.

The official evasi0n 6.1 jailbreak: — Check regularly for updates! #evasi0n

The site currently indicates the following status:

68%: Applications for Windows and OS X are finished. Remains linux and some testing. Come back soon!
Next step: private beta testing

A progress bar indicates the team is more than half way done the jailbreak. According to the team new Evasi0n untethered jailbreak is compatible with all iPhone, iPod touch, iPad and iPad mini models running iOS 6.0 through iOS 6.1.

The new team of hackers consists of Pod2g, Planetbeing, MuscleNerd, and Pimskeks. Following the release of iOS 6.1, Planetbeing confirmed that their untethered jailbreak works with the firmware and MuscleNerd hinted that the jailbreak could be released on Sunday.

iphonefb Dropbox And Facebook iOS Apps Are Vulnerable To Credential Theft

This week Gareth Wright reported that Facebook’s app for iOS has a security vulnerability through which malicious users can access login credentials saved in a .plist file of the app. With a copy of that .plist file malicious users could automatically log into the affected user’s Facebook account on another device. Reportedly, the vulnerability also exists on Android devices.

Wright describes several different ways in which your login credentials could be obtained by a malicious user, including hidden applications installed on shared PCs, customized apps, or modified speaker dock that could copy your plist.

According to Facebook, the issue only affects jailbroken or lost devices, as it requires physical access or installation of a custom app on the device. But Wright and The Next Web pointed out that simply plugging into any device would be sufficient for malicious users to gather these files.

The Next Web has confirmed that Dropbox for iOS is also vulnerable to this issue. Given that two such high-profile apps as Facebook and Dropbox are vulnerable to credential theft, it is likely that other apps are also affected by the issue.

As many reports note, this method of gathering login credentials is not actively utilized in a malicious manner, and users can protect their data for the time being by not plugging their devices into shared computers and charging stations.

crash reporter Want untethered iOS 5 jailbreak? Help hackers to find new exploits!

Semi-tethered jailbreak is already available for some devices for both iOS 5 and iOS 5.0.1. But we all want untethered jailbreak and we want jailbreak for iPad 2 and iPhone 4S. So why not help hackers to find new exploits and vulnerabilities?

The Chronic Dev-Team has a released a tool to collect crash reports from iOS devices in order to find vulnerabilities that could lead to an untethered jailbreak.

The idea is very simple. When your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch crashes it sends data to Apple (you can turn it this off though). Apple uses these reports to update iOS in the future. By the way, it also uses them to fix exploits found by jailbreakers. P0sixninja says that Apple closed several exploits they have found in IOS 5 beta before the final version of the software was released.

In order to find more vulnerabilities as fast as possible, the team has developed a tool which will copy the crash reports from your device and analyze them to locate potential exploits. The tool will also remove the crash reports from your device and modify your iTunes installation to prevent uploading of that diagnostic information to Apple.

iH8Sn0w has released a new version of Sn0wBreeze 2.8 b4 with iOS 5.0 beta 3 jailbreak support. Sn0wBreeze is a so-called PwnageTool for Windows, an application that creates a custom ipsw with jailbreak preserving old baseband.

The jailbreak is tethered for iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS (new bootrom), iPad, iPod Touch 3G and iPod Touch 4G. Jailbreak is untethered for iPhone 3GS with old bootrom.

You can download Sn0wBreeze 2.8 b4 here.

sn0wbreeze v2.8 BETA 4 Release Notes:

iPad 1G                          [TETHERED]
Those wondering, the jailbreakme exploit
cannot be integrated into applications
such as PwnageTool/redsn0w/sn0wbreeze.
redsn0w seems to be having sandbox errors
due to it using the old b1 kernel.
I and many others have not seen any issues
with sn0wbreeze related to AppStore apps.
If you prefer to use redsn0w, I am sure
@MuscleNerd is working on a fix.

ios5 redsn0w 500x205 iOS 5 jailbreak released: Redsn0w 0.9.8 b1

MuscleNerd recently Tweeted that iOS 5 beta 1 jailbreak is already available. DevTeam released Redsn0w 0.9.8 b1.

For now the jailbreak is tethered (you have to run redsn0w each time you reboot) and available for Mac OS X only. It will not activate your device, so you need have registered UDID. iPhone 3GS users with 06.15 baseband: redsn0w will get you past the iTunes restore error. This redsn0w will probably work on future versions of iOS 5.

Redsn0w 0.9.8 b1 works with iOS 5 b1 on iPhone 4 (GSM / CDMA), iPhone 3GS, iPod Touch 3G, iPod Touch 4G, iPad 1.

This is mostely for developers of Cydia apps. Most tweaks and Cydia applications do not work on iOS 5.

You can download Redsn0w 0.9.8 b1 here.

jailbreak API

Apple has reportedly disabled its jailbreak detection API through iOS 4.2 software update. The API helped third-party mobile device management (MDM) applications to check for unauthorized modifications of system files. Apple’s jailbreak detection API provided MDM applications direct access to iOS system information and was able to ask the operating system directly if it had been jailbroken. Jailbreak exploits typically change a number of operating system files, and exploit one or another low-level OS features to let users directly load their own or third-party applications.

“We used it when it was available, but as an adjunct,” says Joe Owen, vice president of engineering at Sybase, which offers the Afaria device management software. “I’m not sure what motivated their removing that….”

120 400x108 New Apple TV Allows App Installation, Needs Launcher

Developer Steven Troughton-Smith found out that iOS applications can installed on the new Apple TV. You only need to slightly modify the applications to identify them as Apple TV-compatible. Of course, Steven’s discovery is an important step in developers’ quest to run applications on the device, but the applications are not yet usable, as the Apple TV doesn’t have any application launcher that would be required for an app to function.
