According to the latest rumors, both Evasi0n and Pangu jailbreak utilities have been recently nominated for 2014 Pwnie Awards. This award is presented to those developers and security researchers, who find bugs or important exploits in the software. This year’s award will be given to a developer (or the developers) that made some important discoveries in the period of the past twelve months.

Both the Evasi0n and Pangu jailbreaks for iOS 7 have been nominated for 2014 Pwnie awards. The Pwnie Awards celebrate the achievements of security researchers and developers who find certain bugs and exploits. The awards cover bugs disclosed over the last year (July 2013 – June 2014).

Last year the Pwnie Award was given to a developer nicknamed Planetbeing. It is very difficult to predict whom judges will choose this year as both Evasi0n and Pangu tools for jailbreak are worth winning the award.

If to speak about me, I would probably choose Evasi0n as the people behind this product were using their own exploits and methods for jailbreaking iOS 7, unlike the authors of Pangu.

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.

evasi0n7 1.0.8 Evad3rs Release New Version of Their Jailbreak Utility   Evasi0n7 1.0.8

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.

As you probably know, Apple has recently released iOS 7.1 to users worldwide. However, I recommend that you should wait for a while and don’t update since Apple has patched the kernel exploit used by evasi0n7 jailbreak tool. What this means is that it is temporarily impossible to hack the device running iOS 7.1, either it is an iPhone or iPad or iPod touch.

evasion7 patched 7.1 500x211 Bad News for Jailbreakers: iOS 7.1 Patches Evasi0n7 Jailbreak

As noted by iClarified,

This is a warning to all jailbreakers. Apple has patched the evasi0n7 jailbreak with the release of iOS 7.1.

Please do not update if you wish to retain your jailbreak. You will not be able to downgrade back to to 7.0.6.

As to the all those people who don’t care about their jailbreak, they’re free to update since the new version contains a bunch of important enhancements, new features and security tweaks. So, it’s up to you to decide whether update or not. Well, that’s all.

According to the recent reports, the evad3rs have released an update for their jailbreak utility. The hackers have fixed the problem with bundled package lists that “could not be updated by Cydia”. The update has brought the evasi0n7 tool to version 1.0.7.

However, not all the users may require this update and here’s why (via iDownloadBlog):

This is more of a maintenance update, as it doesn’t really add new features or benefits for people who aren’t experiencing the above problem. So unless you are seeing the issue, there’s no reason for you to restore and re-jailbreak.

What that all means is that if you have any problems with evasi0n7 – it is recommended that you update. If everything works normally, simply ignore the new version and continue using the older one.

One can grab the new evasi0n7 jailbreak utility (version 1.0.7) from the evad3rs’ official website.

The evad3rs have released new Evasi0n7 1.0.6. The updated jailbreak tool version allows to hack the devices running latest iOS 7.0.6. Looks like you don’t have to wait or search for alternative patches as I recommended yesterday. All you need to do is to upgrade to iOS 7.0.6 and then run the Evasi0n7 tool.

According iDownloadBlog,

Following Apple’s release yesterday of iOS 7.0.6, the evad3rs have released an update to their evasi0n7 jailbreak tool. The update, which brings the tool to version 1.0.6. included a fix for an SSL connection verification issue, which turned out to be a major security flaw in the operating system.

Before jailbreaking your iPhone, iPod touch or iPad, make sure you backed up all the important files from your device.

One can download Evasi0n7 1.0.6 from the official website. As always, it is available for free.

Apple has recently released iOS 7.0.6 to public. At the same time, the company from Cupertino seeded iOS 6.1.6 to users. Both updates contain a fix for SSL connection verification, so you should update your device. Be sure.

However, I recommend you to wait a bit, since Evasi0n7 1.0.5 isn’t yet compatible with the latest iOS version. If you can’t wait, you may look for unofficial patches for the jailbreak tool.

As noted by iDownloadBlog,

From the surface, it looks like iOS 7.0.6, which carries a build number of 11b651, just contains a fix for SSL connection verification. It is for all devices. And as for iOS 6.1.6, it carries a build number of 10b500, and is just for the iPhone 3GS and iPod touch 4G.

The previous version of Apple’s mobile operating system was released at the end of January and contained a number of bug fixes and improvements.

One can download iOS 7.0.6 and iOS 6.1.6 via Software Update or through iTunes.

The company from Cupertino will release the final version of its iOS 7.1 to the public no sooner than in March. Apart from the new mobile operating system, Apple is expected to unveil the next-generation Apple TV.

But let’s get back to iOS. According to the latest 9to5Mac report,

The iOS 7.1 update is said to not have any “secret features,” and it will basically be what we have been told to expect by the past five betas: some user-interface tweaks in the Phone app, an improved Calendar app, speed improvements, and numerous bug-fixes.

Apple hasn’t yet set the date of the release, but obviously it will do that a bit later.

However, it is still unknown whether it would be possible to jailbreak iOS 7.1. As iH8Sn0w says, the vulnerabilities used by evasi0n7 were fixed in the latest iOS 7.1 beta. Nevertheless, hackers still have some unused exploits, so let’s hope for the best.

The evad3rs have released an updated evasi0n 7.0.5 that brings the ability to jailbreak iOS 7.0.5. The iOS 7.0.5 was released earlier this week for the some iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c models (the GSM + CDMA editions).

Pod2g noted the change on twitter

Hi there! evasi0n 1.0.5 with support for iOS 7.0.5 is up on http://evasi0n.com .

Apple has already patched the exploits evasi0n7 uses in the latest iOS 7.1 beta, as we reported yesterday, so this will be the last firmware you will be jailbreak iOS 7 for some time.

You can download the latest Evasi0n 7.0.5 here.

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.

I0n1c confirmed that it is safe to update to iOS 7.0.5 if you have a jailbroken device. This version of Apple’s mobile operating system is still vulnerable to the evasi0n7 jailbreak exploits. Here’s what the hacker posted on Twitter:

Okay #evasi0n7 still works in iPhone 5s at 7.0.5

ios 7.0.5 jail 500x323 Evasi0n7 Jailbreak Works on iOS 7.0.5, Requires Patch

Nevertheless, to successfully jailbreak a device running iOS 7.0.5 you will need a special patch for evasi0n7.

To make evasi0n work with iOS 7.0.5 one way is to patch 11B511 into 11B601 in the binary. Ehmm btw… the patch are not hex bytes but simple ASCII iOS build numbers that need to be fixed.

It’s good that Apple forgot to fix the vulnerability, which lets the users jailbreak their devices.
