The full list of improvements is available below, take a look.
Good news for all jailbreakers – looks like Apple’s new iOS 8 is jailbreakable. According to what security expert Stefan Esser (aka i0n1c) has tweeted a couple of hours ago, the guys from Cupertino haven’t fixed the kernel bug used to jailbreak iOS-devices. This means that immediately after the public release of iOS 8 we may have a jailbreak for it.
Last month, i0n1c announced his jailbreak for iOS 7.1.1. Looks like the same utility will be able to hack the devices running iOS 8. However, I don’t think Esser or any other hacker will release a jailbreak for iOS 7.1.1 or iOS 8 now. You see, this may help Apple to fix the vulnerability used for jailbreaking. This is definitely not the thing we all need, right?
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.
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.
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’ officialwebsite. 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.
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’ officialwebsite.
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.
As you probably know, a few days ago iH8sn0w, winocm and SquiffyPwn have released an untethered jailbreak for smartphones and tablets running iOS 6.1.3 – 6.1.5 – p0sixspwn. At first it was available only for Mac users, however, things have changed. Yes, you’ve got that right, p0sixspwn (version 1.0.4) for Windows is finally out.
At the same time, the new version of the jailbreak utility for Mac – 1.0.3 – is coming soon. If you have any problems with 1.0.2, it is recommended that you update to 1.0.3 since it is more stable.
Don’t forget to make a backup before jailbreaking your device and remember you hack your smartphone or tablet at your own risk.
One can download p0sixspwn for both Mac (version 1.0.2) and Windows (version 1.0.4) here.
