iOS 7.1 beta 4 believed to patch key evasi0n7 exploit

By , Jan 21, 2014

Evasi0n7 iOS 7.1 beta 3

As most of you know, Apple released a new version of iOS 7.1 for developers yesterday. It’s the fourth beta for the next major update to iOS, and as you can imagine, we’ve been asked a number of times if it kills the month-old evasion7 jailbreak software.

Well we don’t know for sure, which is why we’ve been holding off on reporting about this, but we’ve received word that it’s likely it does. And iH8sn0w added weight to the theory this morning, saying that it looks like beta 4 patches evasion7’s kernel exploit…

And here’s a tweet from jailbreak developer CoolStar:

If any of this is true, then it would spell bad news for evasi0n7 and future jailbreakers. You would think that the software—which was first released on December 22—would either have to be reworked to use different exploits, or completely scrapped and rebuilt.

The bottom line is: we’re still holding out on confirmation from pod2g or one of the other evad3rs that iOS 7.1 beta 4 patches a key exploit, but it’s still probably a good idea for jailbreakers to stay away from the beta and make sure they’re on firmware 7.0.4.

Update: it looks like we were right to have our reservations. MuscleNerd just added to the conversation:

Now, this doesn’t mean that beta 4 doesn’t patch evasi0n7, it just means we don’t know anything for sure yet.

        SIRIously.

  • Andrew Roth

    Should’ve waited…. hopefully they have more exploits ready for public release…

    • sharp44MAG .

      If you updated to 7.1 beta 4 then while you can just restore to 7.0.4 though iTunes. Apple is still signing iOS 7.0.4.

      • Andrew Roth

        I don’t mean should’ve waited to update, I mean to release the jailbreak. I’m still on beta 3, but thanks. :-)

      • Harald Tan

        Don’t betas expire?

      • mav3rick

        Should be until next week or week after when new restores and Jailbreak party will be over… Not officially confirmed by evad3rs but it looks 7.1b4 disables evasi0n 1.0.4.

  • Adham

    It was expected to happen. From what I’ve understood with iOS 5.1 and 6.1 jailbreaks (except 6.1.3 and newer), it was just a matter of finding a couple more exploits to do the job the lost exploits did. Someone will correct me if I am wrong though :p

  • Guest

    Guess most of the people too late for JB are gonna have to wait a year for the iOS8 JB

    • pegger1

      How are most of the people too late? This is a beta not available to the public yet (only for devs). Most of the public will be on 7.0.4 or earlier which can be jailbroken.

    • ExRoot

      It’s a beta. Chill. Just do it ASAP.

  • Skoven

    Or maybe these guys are acting like Apple closed the exploits, so Apple won’t look further into patching their firmware. Lets hope so.
    The evasion jailbreak code is not available for anyone to view right? If that’s true, then Apple will be guessing where to patch their firmware right?
    Please correct me, if i got this wrong :)

    • Ara Rezaee

      Well Apple has iOS’s source code so they can easily patch the changed parts. Just do a search for whats changed and that’s it

      • Maxim∑

        “Well Apple has iOS’s source code”

        NO WAY!

      • 123bob

        lolololol

    • Maxim∑

      Apple “just” has to run the program and reverse engineer the memory addresses and they can see where the exploit originates from so I don’ think that would work

      • ✪ aidan harris ✪

        Correct! In fact Geohot did it for them

  • Joey Jreij

    is it able to remove the dyld.patch? or replace the file with the same size, and then empty. so apple software check server won’t recognize it?

  • JulianZH

    not really care much jb or not to me.

    • Dani Hayes

      I kind of agree. With my 5s no with my iPad 2 and 4S I want it. I like stock iOS on my 5s. Everything is working fine. Feels nice to have both when I need.

      • blastingbigairs

        So MovieBox, TetherMe (free wifi tethering), MusicBox, Pandora Downloader, UnlimTones, and Killbackgound7 doesn’t interest you? Don’t deny yourself bro, you gotta free your device!!!!

      • Dani Hayes

        My 4S and iPad 2 are always going to be jail broken so I have those tweaks and such for those devices. My 5s is fine without it.

  • Dani Hayes

    So now we wait for Taig I mean evasi0n7.1 to come out.

    • Maxim∑

      they already addressed Taig a while ago

  • La Cucaracha

    Its ok, 7.1 sucks balls anyway!!

  • Ben

    Thats too bad.

  • Jonathan

    *cries*

  • wonderboydave

    question..

    is it worth it to upgrade to ios 7 and jailbreak? im currently on 6.1.2 and jailbroken. would love your input guys.. thanks

    • Maxim∑

      what device do you have?

      • wonderboydave

        iphone 4s

      • onebyone_

        it’s safe. do it before apple launch 7.1 GM
        though.

      • Ara Rezaee

        If you’re apps all support iOS 6 then don’t, 4 and 4S become very slow after the update

      • Dyon Boyce

        can anyone tell me how to unlock ios 7.0.4 ? i jailbreak it but it is still lock to AT&T network

      • Maxim∑

        If its the 4S I would go for it, but it might not run as smooth as on iOS 6 for some tasks and you will have slightly less free RAM available for tweaks and apps etc…

      • Dan

        So the device will be slower and have less ram. Why are you telling him to do it then =p

    • blastingbigairs

      100% yes. Do it now before Apple stops signing 7.0.4. Last chance to board the JB train!!!

  • hkgsulphate

    well took Apple long enough

    • Maxim∑

      Yeah it took them a ridiculous 22 days to patch

      • Me

        Why do you comment on everyone’s input? Hang out in the discussion like a mall rat.

      • Maxim∑

        Commenting on 4 people ut of 136 is everyone? And because some had questions that I could answer

  • Jonathan

    Should I restore right before the 7.1 public release to help prevent a force restore from a jailbreak issue forcing me to go to 7.1?

  • onebyone_

    I hope the evasi0n team had exploits to use in the future.. I think they will play the same game as apple did.

    • Freddy Born

      …what?

  • Jonathan

    Okay, who’s on a downvote spree? 98% of the people here are downvoted for no reason…

    • 123bob

      I know right! weird

      • 123bob

        Maybe they’re the apple workers…

      • Jonathan

        LOLOL maybe. xD

      • Ninja Banana

        (Post gets downvoted) lol

      • Jonathan

        I can’t figure out why everyone (especially me) is getting downvoted, a lot..

    • La Cucaracha

      Didn’t even notice lol

    • iamataff

      I bet I can get more downvotes than you !

      • Jonathan

        I just gave you one. :P

  • Jonathan

    I just thought of this. I wonder if once the jailbreak community says they ran out of exploits and cannot find any, Apple will allow people to jailbreak, but cannot receive any service in Apple stores and lose their warranty. I wouldn’t be surprised if they did that..

  • illK†Δ

    To those complaining: Why would they waist an exploit on a stupid beta?? Also, why are you even on a beta jailbroken? Just go back to 7.0.4 it’s still being signed

    • ✪ aidan harris ✪

      People are complaining because it likely means (in fact I’m 99.99% sure it means) that there will not be a jailbreak for iOS 7.1 unless Apples patch(es) can be patched :P

      • onebyone_

        yep. maybe apple will troll us with 7.1 with exactly same features as we saw in this beta4 waiting for evaders to release an evasi0n update, then apple will release 7.1.1 that wil patch the new explot again. I think evader’s will need to wait to a considerable iOS UPDATE with really new features. I love my iPhone w/JB right now.

  • jocastro

    no surprise here

  • YzMENTALzY

    Moving to android had enough of this cat n mouse game good while it lasted tho. SG5 4 Me

    • Jonathan

      We’ll miss you..

      • YzMENTALzY

        Il miss you guys too il be around tho look at all the fanboys just come lol

    • Rowan09

      Why? Your not forced to update your phone and it’s just a beta. With Android it’s very similar because if you root and a root is not available you still have to wait.

      • YzMENTALzY

        Not saying im forced to update but id rather have latest software plus JB has only 5-6 people working on it compared to rooting mods on android where double/triple/quadruple that are working on rooting and mods so who will get the job done quicker? TBH i love the jailbreak scene and love what the guys do for us but seriously after owning every iphone in the past till the iphone 5 i think i need a change, samsung doing more innovation than apple atm and its true weather u believe it or not give me as many thumbs down as u want but its a fact… When apple create something gimmicky every Apple fan goes crazy… But when samsung do it they say no its a crap gimmick why the double standards? Plus i got a upgrade coming and i dont want to upgrade to a iphone 5 its the same thing over and over.. 64bit chip with 2GB RAM is a joke. A 64bit Chip works best with 4GB RAM or more as it gets to utilize its potential who are apple trying to kid here its basics in IT.

      • Rowan09

        Everyone is entitled to their own opinion but you are wrong in regards to the 64Bit chip, while it’s best utilized for 4GB or more doesn’t mean it’s useless on 3GB or less. What gimmicky features did Apple come out with since the inception of the iPhone? Siri was a much needed addition over the voice control, iMessage and FaceTime audio is a big deal and the Touch ID works seamlessly with the phone, it doesn’t require any extra work to use after initial setup. A lot of the Samsung features are gimmicky because most people doesn’t use them or even find them solving a problem. I like have multiple screens for video but on a 5″ phone it’s not a great experience. Nevertheless videopane is a jailbreak app that does the same thing and the other for eye scroll I can’t remember. Samsung hasn’t really done much innovation either, they add new software features but excluding last years model. I have the Note 2 and all the additions software wise can also be added to the Note 2 but they make it exclusive to the Note 3. Give me something Samsung did that is or was revolutionary? Apple comes out with a 64bit chip and gets knocked for not innovating, if Samsung did it first it would be a huge deal. Touch ID is one of the most innovative additions to the iPhone since Siri in my opinion.

      • YzMENTALzY

        I never said thats 64bit chip doesnt work with 3Gb or less i said its best utilized with 4Gb or more.

        Siri was a gimmick how often do people use it? I know people with iphones hardly ever use siri either because she ont understand or its too slow compared to doing it phisically yourself. As for samsung gimmicks im not saying they arent gimmicks what i was saying was they are there and who wouldnt use the eye scrolling feature? When i lay down sideways it checks and doesnt rotate the screen, im a picky person and have to use rotation lock i hate having rotation lock. I can read my messages without going into it with airview. You are talking about videopane and stuff yes i agree but if you calling samsung stuff gimmicks then why did the jailbreak community make em for iphone for people like me and you to download? Are they not gimmicks when its on a iphone? They still taking from android and giving iphone users the same sort of experience right? Dont see android taking from apple… Notification centre? Android… Control centre? Android, multitasking in ios7? Android, IOS7 dynamic lockscreen with bubbles? Copied of android, itunes radio? Copied of google music, Android Ice Cream Sandwich has always allowed users to respond to incoming calls with a quick text message that says “call you right back,” or anything you’d like it to say. Apple stole this idea, and is now marketing it as their own. Funny how when samsung do it to Apple they dont like it and want to sueue but Apple do it all the time…you heard of Dieter Rams? He used to work at Braun as a designer Jony Ive has stolen his designs and used them as his own. Check it up.

        You get all features of a note 3 on your note 2 by rooting and adding mod simple as that.

      • YzMENTALzY

        Let me give you an example here samsung have bought out the Galaxy Gear smartwatch. If apple bring one out does that mean they are copying? No its getting something and trying to make it better thats what i think android has done.. Samsung has gone out and listened to its customers apple do whatever they please same outdated hardware with a new shell and upgraded niggles her and there that would be £500-£800 please

      • Rowan09

        Dude the 5s spanks almost every droid out there so what are you even talking about? Man at least speak the truth and not lies. Outdated tech is the first on a phone 64bit and faster than all those quad core and octa core phones you are bragging about. Come on man.

      • YzMENTALzY

        Im not saying 64bit isnt a outdated and im speaking truth but look 64bit yes but will sammo make it better with a 8core 64bit which is rumoured? Yes im talking about other things such as a .5inch screen increase which gives out a stupid resolution, different colours whats the difference between a iphone 5 and a 5c? Nothing other than the colour and plastic same phone under the hood. Thats what i meant

      • Rowan09

        The 5c wasn’t trying to anything more than a rebrand of the 5 with colors, everyone knows that. You don’t even want me to get into Samsung, they made over 4 different S4 models (Quad core, Octa Core, Waterproof, camera model is just a few). How will Samsung make it better because of a Octa core phone? As I said the 5s is faster than the S4 and even the Note 3 in most cases or they are the same in the case of the Note 3.

      • grumpyfuzz

        You realize that it is basically identical to the Nexus 5? The Nexus 5 is also pushing around way more pixels, which is much harder on the GPU. And don’t forget about the ART runtime, which will precompile apps just like iOS. Once that is not a developer setting and used by default, let’s see how that goes.

      • Rowan09

        Point being it’s not faster with better specs on paper. IOS doesn’t need all that GPU or RAM but that doesn’t mean they won’t update it on the 6. All that bragging about quad core and octa core does nothing for real world experience is my point so it’s baseless.

      • grumpyfuzz

        I’m not bragging about having a quad core, but it is one of the fastest phones out right now, even with the OS and the pixel density. And also your point does make perfect sense, but even the A7 is the best in single core benchmarks.

      • Rowan09

        Siri as I said is a huge upgrade to voice control and if you own a car with Bluetooth Siri is very useful. Multitasking in IOS is not an Android thing it’s more like from HTC touchpad. You give Android way too much credit for things the jailbreak introduced to IOS. I appreciate Android but you are making it seem like it’s innovating when it’s the same basic thing every time which in Samsung case a software upgrade. The jailbreak community add these revolutionary software features to IOS and it goes to show it’s just some coding. Rarely is software ever revolutionary. Are you saying IOS shouldn’t make additions because it may either be in the jail break community or on Android? If you are that is just ridiculous. No matter what Apple does they are damned. I can get most of Samsung’s features with a jailbreak as you stated with rooting just to get some basic software updates available on a Note 3 and not on the 2.

      • YzMENTALzY

        No apple copy most jailbreak features anyway (wifi sync, notification centre, homescreen copied from intelliscreen, icloud copied from ibye, multitasking, custom wallpaper, volume button shutter release (snaptap) and the list is endless) im not saying android is better than ios or ios is better just stating the facts which show apple steal and when others do it they cry like babies…and samsung isnt just a software update its also loads of hardware updates too like the 8core cpu, the upgraded camera, more sensors, better screen etc

      • Rowan09

        Octa core been around since the S4. You need to understanding the difference between stealing and improving or implementing. iCloud is copied from ibye? Come on man, now implementing cloud services is stealing? Go to Android you sound like most Android fanboys.

      • YzMENTALzY

        Yes octacore has been round since s4 but what im saying is the same thing you just said apple do something samsung made it better and apple started crying to courts…not saying they stole cloud services but thet took ideas from jailbreak community

      • Rowan09

        What are you talking about made what better? Apple is only on dual core and it’s faster than those quad core and Octa core phones. Apple started crying to courts about what exactly something Samsung admit to using without permission? Apple was also sued by Samsung as well you know, if you own a tech you have the right to sue if used without your permission so that’s those guys business. Apple got ideas from the jailbreak community, Android and the touchpad but what’s your point? Android got their infancy from IOS but that’s what companies do, it’s not stealing unless it’s using someone else’s tech without permission.

      • Elvin Topalov

        Everything revolves around previous ideas. Nothing is “stolen” (unless it is a blatant copy, of course); it is simply improved upon.

      • Elvin Topalov

        No offense but Google Now has proven to be more accurate than Siri. You can’t get a lot of the software enhancements on a Samsung on your iPhone either since the iPhone doesn’t have the sensors that supports the software. Also, Apple hardware is glorious. They just need better software. I love the iPad Mini Retina, but hate my iPhone 5. It was hard choosing between a Nexus 7 and the Mini, but I’m very happy with my decision. All-in-all, iOS just isn’t as advanced when it comes down to being a daily driver in my opinion.

      • Rowan09

        I respect your opinion but as a user of both Android and IOS I couldn’t have Android as my daily driver. By the way Google now from the last article I read was just as accurate as Siri and it was written late last year.

      • Elvin Topalov

        I am a user of iOS and and Android also, but it just comes down to what you prefer. I have no fanboyism in me, I just want to see the next big thing, no matter what company it comes from. Each OS has its pros and cons at the end of the day.

      • Rowan09

        I agree they have their pros and cons. I can’t wait to see what 2014 brings for these companies.

      • Elvin Topalov

        LG’s transparent screens being implemented into future devices, yes please. :D

      • grumpyfuzz

        You bring up samsung keeping features on newer hardware, did you forget Siri? That was exclusive to the 4s, and wasn’t available on previous devices. Same with airdrop, Apple quoting it is a “ios 7 feature”.

      • Rowan09

        The 5 has airdrop and every iPad beyond 2nd gen. I have no problem with Samsung doing what they do to get people to purchase a new phone but the point is it’s not a big upgrade from the Note 2-3 it’s an S upgrade. The 4s had Siri as the new selling point but the 4 wasn’t left in the dark besides Siri, Apple always implement new phones without forgetting about the older models for the most part.

      • grumpyfuzz

        The iPhone 4s doesn’t have airdrop as well. And also, using software as an upgrade is a pretty cheap way to call it an upgrade.

      • Rowan09

        The 4s is not last years phone the 5 is. What are you talking about this is what Samsung basically did for the Note 3 and the S4? So you are saying Apple shouldn’t allow software updates for older phones?

      • grumpyfuzz

        I don’t like samsung anyways, but you brought up the fact that apple doesn’t leave iOS features out. Sorry about that, at first I didn’t read you saying excluding last years model, I thought you meant all the models. And also, I never said Apple shouldn’t allow software updates on a phone, just that they are not getting everything “included” in the update.

      • http://173.58.214.169/ That’s what Siri said!!!

        Actually you don’t have to wait for root as Google does not care what you to its nexus devices or android in general.

    • El Arqui Tecto

      You write everything you think?

      • YzMENTALzY

        Yes i write what i think is correct as everyone is entitled to their own opinion you dont need to agree with everything i say but i say it from the bottom of my heart

      • AndroidDogHeatandSteelersFan

        i Hate that about people who uses andriod. they write their life story like someone gives a crap. I myself don’t do that except this instance.

      • YzMENTALzY

        I dont use android im using ios so does that mean ios users od the same?

      • AndroidDogHeatandSteelersFan

        From comparison of reading other tech blog sites. I would have to disagree with you on this. The possibility of an android user discussing their life on android to me is much higher than the normal iPhone user which does not have to brag about specs, problems, issues. As seen iPhone users are much more content with their devices. The android users on the other hand, most of them are very immature.

    • Luism27

      good luck with that high specs garbage loaded with crapware and malware!

      • YzMENTALzY

        Yes i agree malware and stuff but jailbreaking is as much of a threat as you have opened ios by jailbreaking it so why do you jailbreak? Im not even a troll i love apple products. Just that some people got their heads stuck up their backsides on here and dont see it… The fact of the matter is why do people use windows? Thats got malware n viruses? Even Macs too, if your careful about what you install you dont get them simple as that, plus you have anti virus on android too

      • grumpyfuzz

        You don’t even need an anti-virus, I am an android user lol. Unless you download whatever you see, you’ll be fine.

    • Fermín Osorio

      Right. Go. Good luck with the Android updates.

      • YzMENTALzY

        Yes rooting and getting a mod to latest version works too come on guys im not trying to start a argument on whats better they both great OS’s it all depends on a matter of opinion and at this moment i think Android is ahead

      • Fermín Osorio

        Dude what are you talking about? I think Android is a good OS, yeah, I have a Nexus 7 and I love it. BUT I do not like the fragmentation, the delay with the updates. People having a S3 still need to wait to have kit kat on their devices. People are like “yeah Android 4,2,2 awesome!” and I am just like dude wtf the last update is 4.4.2 and you are just getting 4,2,2 now? Yeah right thats awesome…

        Thats the problem. Oh you have to root your device yo have it. Does an Apple USER, Not even a fanboy, needs to jailbreak to have the last update? No.

        I like the Nexus 5 is a great phone, but I like iOS, the software, thats the deffirence. Android is a great OS, but once you experiment with both OS con your daily with the last update of both you can know wich one os better.

        And yes, is just my opinión.

    • blastingbigairs

      You’ll be back bro. Android seems great at first, but then you realize it’s unrefined and cheap. See you in a few months.

  • tw23777

    7.1b4 only patches the kernel exploit, all other vulns are still there, so if devs wanted to, they could burn another kernel exploit to have evasi0n7 to work on 7.1 (if Apple doesnt patch anything else…)

  • onebyone_

    offtopic: someone knows when iH8sn0w will release SnowBreeze 7?
    to create a custom iOS?

  • Carlos Gomes

    “pod2g or one of the other evaders” This sounded so mean toward the other guys.

    On topic… if the JB gets patched for 7.1 and there’s no walk around, it will suck to 4,4S and at least for the iPad 3 owners.
    7.1 makes those devices as fast as they were with iOS 6.

  • jay

    Sure they try to block it and my understanding is that the jailbreak came out to early for me then apple wouldn’t close it! But it’s ok and I am happy with my iOS 7.0

  • Diego Gastón Milano

    Well, I believe we still have time until February 10th to upgrade to iOS 7.0.4 for those who haven’t upgraded to iOS 7 yet; UNLESS there is another beta in which case that’d add an additional 3-week time.

  • Matt

    Well I won’t make a mistake like I did last year. I updated to 6.1.3 and lost my jailbreak, not making that mistake again and not going to update.

  • J. Rockwell

    Did they update “No update” yet????????

    Quick Question – Can anyone confirm me that if evasni0n can jailbreak ios 7.1 beta 4 or not ? I didn’t try jailbreaking ios7.1b4 yet with evasi0n… anyone tried here ? Did it work ?

    • Hermès Vainstar Chu

      why don’t you try and let us know

    • Jonathan

      If beta 4 is actually jailbreakable, it still won’t work with evasi0n. Evasi0n has to add it to the list of supported iOS software.

    Ill stick with my jailbroken iphones and ipads, there are paid cool stuff in cydia where u can do both, themes, tweaks….7.1 has nothing to offer just yet. Maybe nextime boys….ty

      you can restore to 7.0.4 just put your device and go to iTunes, and it should say that it found a device in recovery mode and you can restore it.

  • Blip dude

    Seeing it as a sign, if 7.1 will not be jailbroken, then I’ll just stick to 6.1.2 because I really am not missing out on iOS 7. I got the Air to deal with iOS 7.

    i really don’t understand why there are always comments regarding exploits and whether or not they are closed or not in Apple beta updates and why jailbreak tools are being updated to support betas whats the need or the benefit of this. I guess the status updates work for public releases but for betas it seems detrimental. Its not like people are gonna keep running beta software and tweaks will be updated for betas. If 7.1 is not jailbreakable all of this is for nothing. It also just seems like the community is giving clues to apple as to whether or not they are fixing these vital exploits. Makes no sense to me.

    1) Have iPad Retina (4th gen), 16GB, wifi only, not jailbroken, iOS 6.1.2. Mainly used by parents to stream video. Is it worth upgrading to iOS 7.0.4?
    2) Have iPad Mini (1st gen), 64GB, wifi only, iOS 6.1.2, jailbroken. Is it worth upgrading to iOS 7.0.4, then jailbreak again?

    Have read reviews and performance issues. But thought a lot of it was resolved in iOS 7.0.4. Thanks for your thoughts! (btw, have iPhone 4, upgraded to iOS 7, hated the performance, downgrade back to iOS 5.1.1, jailbroken :) )

    • Arjan Vlek

      Those iPads are way faster than the iPhone 4. Unless your parents hate iOS 7, You should update the iPad 4 straight away. For your iPad mini: if all the jailbreak tweaks you have installed are iOS 7 compatible, then update as well. If not, make a decision yourself. Not updating now can mean waiting nearly a year for a new jailbreak and more apps will require iOS 7 or higher.

    • Andy

      There’s no reason not to update those devices. The only device that lags behind on iOS 7 is the iPhone 4, the only one I would suggest to stay on iOS 6. All other supported devices work very well with iOS 7. I have an iPad 2 and iPhone 4S.
