A3 tweaks, a group of hackers behind Auxo, a tweak that allowed to extend the functionality of the app switcher in iOS 5 and iOS 6, has announced the Auxo 2 -- an updated jailbreak tweak compatible with iOS 7. Take a look.


In case you don’t know, this tweak is capable of adding music controls, Settings menu toggles and other items to your app switcher in order to make it more intuitive, efficient and functional.

According to iDownloadBlog,

We first saw evidence of Auxo 2 at the beginning of the month, when the group’s UI designer Sentry posted a pair of 6-second video clips teasing some of the tweak’s features. And today, a much longer trailer has been posted.

Auxo 2 is expected to be released very soon -- on April 2nd. Without a doubt, it will be available on Cydia. Well, that’s all I can tell you at the moment. Stay tuned for more news on the topic.

According to John Gruber of Daring Fireball, the company from Cupertino has finished testing iOS 7.1 and is ready to seed it to final users any day now. The big event is likely to take place ahead of the iTunes Festival.

ios 7.1 to come very soon 500x379 Apple May Officially Release iOS 7.1 Any Day Now

The proof is available below (via iClarified):

Apple’s first iTunes Festival in the U.S. starts a week from today at SXSW in Austin. Apple is going to stream the performances to iOS devices using an app, but I’ve heard from a little birdie that the app requires iOS 7.1 (which explains why the app isn’t out yet). That means iOS 7.1 should ship any day now.

Apple’s iOS 7.1 contains a number of important security improvements, apart from that, slightly redesigned call screens and power off slider.

It should be noted, however, that those who use jailbroken devices should not hurry and upgrade to the new iOS version as soon as it becomes available. Previously, some reports surfaced on the Internet, which prove that iOS 7.1 contains fixes for the vulnerabilities used by current jailbreak tools. Hackers have to check if this is truth or not.

Many people don’t like iOS 7 and this has been proven by thousands or even millions of users who complain and ask Apple to bring back the old school design. Quite obvious, nobody will do that, so the only way to make your iOS 7 device look more like the iOS 6 gadget is to jailbreak it and use various Cydia tweaks to adjust the look of the operating system.

old school app switcher 500x266 ClassicSwitcher   New Tweak for Those Who Miss iOS 6

One of such tweaks is ClassicSwitcher -- a tool developed to bring the old school app switcher to iPhones and, what is very important, to iPads running iOS 7. This tweak hasn’t yet been released, but soon it will be available in Cydia.

According to iDownloadBlog,

Not only does it bring the old school switcher functionality to iOS 7, but it brings along with it several goodies as well.

And here’s the short video, which gives us a sneak peek at ClassicSwitcher, take a look:

Saurik has warned the iOS 7 users and jailbreakers not to install the unofficial MobileSubstrate patches that begin to appear on the Internet. The reason for such warning is quite simple – MobileSubstrate hasn’t yet been updated to work with Apple’s new operating system and that can lead to serious consequences.

beware substrate 447x400 Beware of Unofficial MobileSubstrate Patches!

Here’s what saurik says himself (via iClarified):

This is horribly dangerous: MSHookFunction is not designed to be used on functions that might actively be running; this makes Substrate get injected into launchd while launchd is loading launch daemons… no one should install this; it doesn’t even solve the problem remotely correctly for anything but SpringBoard/backboardd, and will end up leaving you with Substrate having been randomly applied to different background processes.

What saurik suggests us to wait for the official update. Well, I guess it’s better to listen to the experienced programmer.

ios7 jail 225x400 There is jailbreak for iOS 7

iOS 7 has been jailbroken. Popular iOS developer Ryan Petrich has posted a screenshot which appears to show Activator running on iOS 7.

Earlier today Petrich tweeted saying, “System version too new?”. Alongside the tweet was the picture below. The picture shows the Springboard of an iPod touch with an Activator icon and a UIAlert window which reads:

System Version Too New
Activator has not been tested to work with this version of iOS. Some features may not work as designed.

Notably, this alert does not seem to be a UIAlert that could be generated from within a sandboxed application, suggesting that device may be jailbroken.

It’s unclear what expoit was used by Petrich. Last year Apple had closed comex’s developer account based exploit that had been used by hackers to root their iDevices for two years.

Hacker p0sixninja recently announced that he has “got a lot of amazing things coming to you all soon. think bigger than jailbreak ;) ” It’s been suggested that he may have found a bootrom exploit.

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.

pwned P0sixninja will hold back his jailbreak exploits for iOS 7

P0sixninja has revealed that he will not be using his jailbreak exploits to release iOS 6.1.3 jailbreak. He plans to hold them back for iOS 7 or iOS 7.1.

Recently the hacker tweeted that the ‘the next jailbreak might be created entirely by me‘ saying that he had discovered several exploits needed for the new jailbreak.

In an interview to iDesignTimes p0sixninja commented that he will definitely not release jailbreak for iOS 6.x.

“I will at least wait for 7.0, if not even 7.1″

To that he added:

“I’ve … been working on it [a while]. Some of them [vulnerabilities] were ideas I had years ago, but everyone said I was crazy, and I’ve just started looking into them more and realizing I was right…”

warning 500x121 Apple Posts Document Warning Users Against Jailbreaking

Apple has posted a document warning users that jailbreaking their iOS devices may cause instability, security vulnerabilities, shortened battery life, and other issues. The document was posted on February 3rd, the same day the Evasi0n jailbreak was originally expected to drop. Take a look:

Unauthorized modification of iOS can cause instability, security vulnerabilities, shortened battery life, and other issues

This article is about adverse issues experienced by customers who have made unauthorized modifications to iOS (this hacking process is often called ”jailbreaking”).

As designed by Apple, iOS and iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch are designed to work together reliably. Unauthorized modifications to iOS (”jailbreaking”) can cause numerous issues to the hacked iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. Examples of issues caused by these unauthorized modifications to iOS have included the following:

Instability: Frequent and unexpected crashes of the device, crashes and freezes of built-in apps and third-party apps, and loss of data.

Security vulnerabilities: Security compromises have been introduced by these modifications that could allow hackers to steal personal information, damage the device, attack the wireless network, or introduce malware or viruses.

Shortened battery life: The hacked software has caused an accelerated battery drain that shortens the operation of an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch on a single battery charge.

Unreliable voice and data: Dropped calls, slow or unreliable data connections, and delayed or inaccurate location data.

Disruption of services: Services such as Visual Voicemail, Weather, and Stocks have been disrupted or no longer work on the device. Additionally, third-party apps that use the Apple Push Notification Service have had difficulty receiving notifications or received notifications that were intended for a different hacked device. Other push-based services such as iCloud and Exchange have experienced problems synchronizing data with their respective servers.

Inability to apply future software updates: Some unauthorized modifications have caused damage to iOS that is not repairable. This can result in the hacked iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch becoming permanently inoperable when a future Apple-supplied iOS update is installed.

Apple strongly cautions against installing any software that hacks iOS. It is also important to note that unauthorized modification of iOS is a violation of iOS end-user license agreement and because of this, Apple may deny service for an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch that has installed any unauthorized software.

spirit jailbreak JailBreak for iPad is Finally Available!

Finally the jailbreak for iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch from the Dev Team is available for download. It’s free and untethered and it’s called “Spirit”. The jailbreak supports every iDevice with firmware version 3.1.2, 3.1.3 or 3.2.

If you have iPhone 3GS or an iPad you should backup your SHSH blobs before using the jailbreak. ECID SHSH or SHSH blob is a unique signature given to every Apple mobile device. When you decide to restore the firmware on your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad, Apple servers checks this signature.

As you know, if a new firmware is released it becomes impossible to restore the older firmware from iTunes. But Cydia creator tuned up a new server and now it mimics Apple’s verification server and saves your older SHSH blobs so that you can restore back your device to the older firmware. Without having your SHSH blobs saved you may accidentally update new firmware and then you not only lose your jailbreak but also won’t be able to restore the older firmware to re-jailbreak your device.

This is also important because there is a big possibility that Apple will soon find out what exploit is used by the jailbreak and then it will be patched in the form of new firmware.

You can save your SHSH blob in three ways. Here is a guide to make it using AutoSHSH.

  1. Download AutoSHSH. (Latest version is here).
  2. SHSHBlobs JailBreak for iPad is Finally Available!

  3. Start AutoSHSH and plug in you iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad in recovery mode (only one device at a time). Recovery mode launches when you turn off your device and hold down the “Home” button when connecting the USB cable. Then you must see “Connect to iTunes” message and logo on your device.
  4. TS1275 JailBreak for iPad is Finally Available!

  5. In AutoSHSH click on “Grab my SHSH Blobs Automatically”. When the app will grab the signature you must choose whether you want to save it locally or not. Do not forget where you saved the signature. In the end of the procedure AutoSHSH will also upload it to saurik’s server.
  6. SHSHBlobs1 JailBreak for iPad is Finally Available!

If you have some problems with using AutoSHSH to save your blobs, write it in comments or try saurik’s method or Firmware Umbrella instead.

Now, when you saved you SHSH blobs, you can make the jailbreak. It is recommended for you to sync your device with iTunes beforehand. Then use the following guide:

  1. Download “Spirit” (link for Windows, link for Mac OS X).
  2. Plug in your device (it will be instantly recognized).
  3. Hit the “Jailbreak” button.

That’s all!

Additionally here is a video tutorial for jailbreaking:

Please note that Spirit is not a carrier unlock so it won’t allow you to use unauthorized wireless carriers. The jailbreak is also “sort of beta”, so it may be buggy. DevTeam notifies that some apps in Cydia that are NOT designed for iPad may crash your system and require you to restore so be careful.

Defensive By Design

It is known, that iPad has a restrictive DRM shackles, which makes Apple the only available supplier of software for this device. So if you buy an iPad, you will have to download software only from the Apple’s AppStore. Yes, there is a big possibility of jailbreaking the gadget within the first 48 hours after its shipping since it’s based on the already jailbroken OS iPhone, but still this is not the best way of downloading applications for most of the people.

There are people, who disagree with a DRM-based strategy of software distribution. Some of them created an Anti-DRM group named Defective by Design. They told us they created an online petition that has been signed for 8,800 times since its inception 4 days ago. DbD has already sent off their first 5,000 signatures in the form of a giant postcard, which is in the photo above.

DbD’s operations manager John Sullivan says their main target is to get Apple to remove DRM and DRM enforcement from all its media and software. This is especially valuable for the iPad designed to be widely used by non-technical people who might not be aware of DRM.

- What Apple is doing with software is quite different. This is a scary step … as Apple move towards this model in the future,

said Sullivan.
