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.
“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.”
Evad3rs have released a new version of their jailbreak tool. Evasi0n7 1.0.3 is compatible with computers running both OS X and Windows; it also contains a number of important fixes and improvements.
Apart from that, those who want to try out the new iOS 7 beta 3 can now install and jailbreak it using the latest evasi0n7 1.0.3.
According to iDownloadBlog,
Evasi0n 7 1.0.3 has just been released for OS X and Windows with a fix for the boot loop issue that has been plaguing Retina iPad mini users. The release, which is the fourth of the jailbreak tool, also includes support for iOS 7.1 beta 3 and a new Cydia bundle.
Good news for all those who have an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch running iOS 7 – all of a sudden, evad3rs released an untethered jailbreak for the seventh version of Apple’s mobile operating system. Evasion 7 jailbreak utility was released December 22nd. A kind of a Christmas present from hackers, huh?
In a move that I think caught all of us way off-guard, the evad3rs have just released an untethered jailbreak for iOS 7. The team is calling the hack evasi0n7, and it’s compatible with all iPhone, iPod touch, iPad and iPad mini models running iOS 7.0 through 7.0.4.
What’s even better is that the iOS 6.1.x users, who previously successfully hacked their devices, can upgrade without losing jailbreak. So if you want to see something new on your iPhone, go ahead and try out jailbroken iOS 7. I’m almost sure you will like it.

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.
The Evad3rs Dev-Team has launched an official website for the jailbreak of iOS 6.1, called ‘Evasi0n’.
The official evasi0n 6.1 jailbreak: http://evasi0n.com — Check regularly for updates! #evasi0n

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.
Pod2g confirmed that the Evad3rs Dev-Team is ready with a jailbreak for iOS 6.1 and credits Planetbeing and Pimskeks for the accomplishment in an interview with iDigitalTimes.
“For your information and this is important to me that everybody knows about it also, this jailbreak will be @planetbeing and @pimskeks. I arrived at the end, gave ideas that pushed them to their maximum, I kinda unblocked the situation, but it would certainly have happened without me helping.”
“Now I am helping as much as I can in terms of communication, websites, and also development, but I was not involved the same way as previous, focused on my work and all… Yes, in order @planetbeing, @pimskeks, then me.”
According to the hacker, iOS 6.0 is jailbroken as is iOS 6.1 Beta 4. The team is now waiting for iOS 6.1 GM to drop after which they can confirm there is no new security measures introduced. Once everything has been tested successfully the team will release the jailbreak. The public jailbreak will be free. It is rumored that all devices will are supported: iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPod Touch 4G, iPod Touch 5G, iPad Mini, iPad 2, iPad 3 and iPad 4.
