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.

jailbreak award 500x203 Evasi0n and Pangu Jailbreak Utilities Are Nominated for 2014 Pwnie Awards

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.

Pangu 1.1.0 Pangu v1.1.0 jailbreak is now available

UPDATE: Works on iOS 7.1.2 as well.

The Pangu team has updated iOS 7.1.1 untethered 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.

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.

Stefan Esser (aka i0n1c), a hacker behind iOS 7.1.1 jailbreak, has explained how he managed to hack his iPhone.

i0n1c jailbreak 500x377 I0n1c Has Explained How His iOS 7.1.1 Jailbreak Works

According to what i0n1c writes, his jailbreak uses a new kernel bug. This vulnerability differs from those that were used previously.

Here’s what he points out in his blog (via iClarified):

This means that the exploit code can be used to break out of any application that you exploit. This is very different from nearly all of the kernel vulnerabilities used in iOS jailbreaks since iOS 4.

In case you don’t know, i0n1c on Sunday shared a photo of a jailbroken iPhone 5c with iOS 7.1.1 on board running Cydia. Another hacker, Winocm, posted a video showing a jailbroken iPhone 4.

The jailbreak has not yet been released. I think we should wait for a while.

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.

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.

evasi0n 705 500x400 Evad3rs released Evasi0n 1.0.5 to jailbreak iOS 7.0.5

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.

Looks like it is possible to make any A5(X) device jailbreakable once and forever. Well, at least this is what iH8sn0w tweeted yesterday. What this all means is that your iPhone 4S, iPad 2, iPad 3, iPad mini, Apple TV 3G, and iPod touch 5G can be jailbroken literally for life.

Here’s what iDownloadBlog writes:

“So looks like all my A5(X) devices are fully untethered and jailbroken for life now. :) ” iH8sn0w, the developer behind Sn0wBreeze and other jailbreak apps, tweeted this afternoon. The comment has caused quite a bit of excitement, as we haven’t seen anything like this in jailbreaking since LimeRa1n.

There’s no information as to how all this stuff works. All we know is that the hacker used a “powerful iBoot exploit.”

Unfortunately (or fortunately, who knows?), iH8sn0w plans not to release the exploit and keep it private, as he says, “for development of future jailbreaks.”

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.
