iOS 7.1 beta 5, which was released yesterday, February 4, fixes one of the most important vulnerabilities used by hackers from the Evad3rs team when creating the Evasi0n7 utility for untethered jailbreak of the latest version of Apple's operating system.
This was announced on Twitter by the well-known iOS hacker iH8sn0w, not a member of the Evad3rs group. According to him, Apple developers have covered a vulnerability through which the Apple File Connection service, when working in mobile mode, could exit the sandbox and connect to the necessary ports. If hackers fail to solve this problem, then untethered jailbreak of iOS 7.1 will not be possible, which actually follows from the tweet of iH8sn0w.
As for the Evad3rs themselves, they do not comment on the situation in any way so as not to reveal their cards to Apple developers. By the way, recently one of the leaders of the team - Pod2g, accused iH8sn0w, Winocm and other hackers of "spotting" one of the key iOS vulnerabilities when developing an untethered jailbreak for iOS 6.1.3-6.1.5. Let us also recall that iOS 7.1 beta 5 received support for LTE networks of domestic cellular operators, an updated Siri assistant, changed design elements, etc.
- Jailbreak for iOS 7.0.5 is possible - Apple has not patched the vulnerability used by Evasi0n7.
- Does iOS 7.1 beta 4 fix the vulnerabilities exploited by Evasi0n7.
- Evasi0n7 1.0.4 fixes iOS 7 jailbreak vulnerabilities (download).
- Perpetual jailbreak for iPhone 4s, iPod touch 5G, iPad 2, iPad 3 and iPad mini has been received.
It seems that the worst fears of the jailbreak community have been confirmed - in iOS 8.1.1 Apple will close the vulnerabilities that made it possible to jailbreak iOS 8 - 8.1 . This statement was made by an alleged member of the Chinese hacking team Pangu Team
Just a few hours ago, Apple developers released a new version of the mobile operating system iOS 7.1, which received not only new functions and interface elements, but also a number of patches for security holes.However, the most important nuance is that Apple stopped signing the previous version of iOS 7
Yesterday's Apple conference, which took place in the Yerba Buena Center (San Francisco), was remembered, first of all, by the releases of the new iPad Air, iPad mini 2, Mac Pro, MacBook Pro, as well as the OS X Mavericks operating system . However, Apple also released a new firmware for mobile devices - iOS 7
A user with the nickname T0ma_94 posted screenshots on Twitter, confirming the possibility of receiving an untethered jailbreak Evasi0n7 of the new Apple iOS 7.0.5 . The jailbreak process itself is no different from previous versions and is possible on the latest versions of iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c smartphones
The Evasi0n Jailbreak Was Killed By The IOS 6.1.3 Update. Downgrading Of New Devices On IOS 6.1.2 Is Not Possible
Despite the worldwide popularity of the Evasi0n tool, which allows you to jailbreak iOS 6 - iOS 6.1.2, Apple decided to end the "gift season" for fans of iOS jailbreak. A few hours ago, the Cupertino-based company released the iOS 6.1.3 update, which closes the Evasi0n vulnerabilities, and thus makes the utility useless for new firmware
