The PanguTeam on Saturday released an important update on the status of its jailbreak utility for iOS 8 – 8.1. As you probably know, earlier this week, the hackers released a new version of untethered jailbreak for iOS 8 – 8.1. It should be noted, however, that this version turned out to be very unstable and was available only for Windows users, that is why the PaunguTeam decided to pull the update back and make it available only for jailbreak developers.

A couple of days ago, Cydia and Mobile Substrate were not working and in the same state they remain now. The hackers say they are currently working hard to make the jailbreak utility work fine as soon as possible. They also ask to keep patience and wait for further updates on the topic.

We are working with @saurik to make Cydia stable asap. Also we are fixing bugs include Safari and iMessage problems. Please wait ..

To make your iOS device compatible with iOS 8 – 8.1 ready for untethered jailbreak, I suggest that you should upgrade to the latest firmware version, which is iOS 8.1 using iTunes. It is a bit safer than using a Software Update option. Stay tuned for more news on the topic.

On Wednesday, September 17th Apple is expected to release iOS 8. This means that there only several hours left for those who need to restore their jailbroken iPhones to iOS 7.1.2 without losing jailbreak. After iOS 8 is released, the guys from Cupertino will no longer be signing iOS 7.1.2. In this case, if a user tries to restore the device using iTunes, he will be forced to update to iOS 8.

Another important announcement is also targeted at the jailbroken iPhone users. If you want to save your jailbreak, do not update to iOS 8 as currently there’s no evidence that it is jailbreakable. Moreover, as it was mentioned above, you won’t be able to restore or downgrade your smartphone to the earlier version of iOS. If your device works fine, keep using iOS 7.

Those who have an iPhone running iOS 7.1.2 or lower can use two utilities for jailbreak, namely, Pangu or evasi0n. Whether these tools will be compatible with iOS 8 is still a question without an answer. Stay tuned for more news about iOS 8 and jailbreak.

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.

Here’s what the hacker writes about the new version of the mobile operating system for iPhone and iPad:

Download finished. Initial tests show that iOS 8 beta does not fix anything. Dumped kernel fine, but code changed and patches are not found.

I guess tomorrow I need a few hours in the office to fix the code and then the JB should be iOS 8 beta compatible.

Only question is if Cydia runs at all in iOS 8.

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?

Good news for all jailbreakers: i0n1c has just posted a video showing his new utility for untethered jailbreak of iOS 7.1.1. It is called Cyberelevat0r and according to its creator, to jailbreak iOS 7.1.1 it uses a recently discovered kernel bug. Nobody knows for sure if the hacker plans to release Cyberelevat0r to public or not. Anyway, let’s take a look at how it works.


As noted by iClarified reporters,

The jailbreak, which has not yet been released, is unique in that it uses a kernel bug which is hidden inside functionality that can be easily reached, even from within the iOS application sandbox.

I honestly hope that i0n1c will release its untethered jailbreak of iOS 7.1.1. However, I don’t think that the release will take place before the release of Apple’s iOS 8. You see, the hackers need to make sure that the bug used for jailbreak remains unpatched.

Apple is expected to announce its iOS 8 at the annual Worldwide Developers Conference, which is set to take place in June. The jailbreak may be released after the conference.

Good news for all jailbreakers -- iOS 7.1.1 has been jailbroken. According to the image shared by famous security researcher Stefan Esser aka i0n1c, the devices running iOS 7.1.1 can be successfully hacked.

What we can see on the image is an iPhone 5c running Cydia 1.1.9. Here’s what the hacker says about the jailbreak (via iClarified):

That iOS 7.1.1 jailbreak is not based on a long vulnerability chain. It uses a single beautiful kernel bug that goes from mobile to kernel.

A couple of minutes after i0n1c, another hacker -- Winocm -- posted a video of a jailbroken iPhone 4 running iOS 7.1.1. You can take a look at the clip below.


The hacker claims that this jailbreak will work on other devices if ‘you put in the effort’.

I don’t know if the jailbreak for iOS 7.1.1 will become public or not. Anyway, let’s hope for the best.

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.

I’ve got some good news for those iPhone 4s users, who plan to jailbreak their iPhones running iOS 7.1. It is possible to hack the older models of Apple’s smartphones. However, it doesn’t necessarily mean that you should upgrade to the latest version of iOS right now. And here’s why.

iphone4s jailbreak ios7.1 500x256 iH8Sn0w Confirms Untethered Jailbreak on iPhone 4s Running iOS 7.1

Following Winocm, who has recently posted a video showing the iOS 7.1 untethered jailbreak on iPhone 4, another hacker – iH8Sn0w – on Wednesday confirmed the successful jailbreak of his iPhone 4s running the same Apple’s iOS 7.1.

Here’s what he tweeted:

NGeary14: @iH8sn0w Can you jailbreak 7.1 iPhone 4s or only 4 ??

iH8Sn0w: @NGeary14 well my 4S is jailbroken on 7.1 atm.

Looks like it is possible to jailbreak any iOS device equipped with an Apple A4 or Apple A5 processor. As to the other iPhones and iPads, there’s no information yet.

iH8Sn0w claims that there won’t be any public jailbreak, at least now. That is why I recommend you to stay away from iOS 7.1. Especially if you have an iPhone 5/5c with Apple A6 CPU or iPhone 5s with Apple A7 CPU on board.

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.

Good news for all iPhone 3G and iPod touch 4G owners – a jailbreak tool called p0sixspwn has been updated to support the recently released iOS 6.1.6. Using this small utility, you can perform an untethered jailbreak effortless.

p0sixspwn updated P0sixspwn Jailbreak Tool Updated to Support iOS 6.1.6

According to what iDownloadBlog reporters write,

If you’re currently using an iPhone 3GS or a 4th generation iPod touch running iOS 6.1.x, it’s highly recommended that you update to iOS 6.1.6, and benefit from Apple’s SSL fix. The good news is that you can then use p0sixspwn to enjoy the same untethered jailbreak that was available for iOS 6.1.3 through iOS 6.1.5.

P0sixspwn is a jailbreak tool developed by iH8sn0w and Winocm. It can be downloaded from Cydia’s ‘System’ section. However, before downloading p0sixspwn you need to perform a tethered jailbreak using RedSn0w or any other utility.

Keep in mind that it is recommended that you update to the latest iOS 6.1.6 as soon as possible since it contains a fix for SSL connection verification.

exploit ios7 500x167 iOS 7.1b4 Blocks Kernel Exploit Used In Evasi0n iOS 7 Jailbreak

Do not expect iOS 7.1 jailbreak soon. Apple has reportedly blocked the kernel exploit used by the evasi0n 7 jailbreak utility. According to iH8sn0w the exploit was blocked in the recent iOS 7.1b4 firmware:

So the code sign bug that evasi0n7 uses still exists in 7.1b4. Kernel exploit looks patched though :P

meaning… Don’t expect an evasi0n7 update for 7.1b4+ support.

The news is unfortunate; however, we still don’t know what exploits will be blocked in the final release of iOS 7.1 and what exploits the evad3rs have alternatives for.
