7-1-1 jailbreak

When we did our ‘state of the iOS 7.1 jailbreak‘ post earlier this month, we noted that there is currently no public jailbreak available for iOS 7.1 and newer firmwares. Apple patched the exploits used by evasi0n7 in 7.1, thus ending the jailbreak tool’s impressive 4-month long run.

That doesn’t mean that iOS 7.1 isn’t jailbreakable though. In fact, we’ve seen proof from winocm and others that it is. And this afternoon, we’re adding more evidence to the pile, as infamous hacker i0n1c has just tweeted a screenshot of his jailbroken iPhone 5c running iOS 7.1.1…

Here is the photo he posted to Twitter, and a few other tweets explaining it:

Of course, if you’ve been jailbreaking for very long, you’re probably well aware of i0n1c’s history. After playing a huge role in iOS 4.3 and other early jailbreaks, he left the community, and hasn’t looked back other than to speak his mind about the evad3rs and other JB happenings.

So don’t get your hopes up. It’s extremely unlikely that i0n1c plans to release an iOS 7.1 jailbreak, and as far as we know, no one else is close. That being said, the fact that he was able to hack 7.1 bodes well for the evad3rs and others, who are actually working on a public release.

We’ll let you know if anything else comes of this.

  • Leonard Wong

    Of course it is jailbreakable but they aren’t going to release it until iOS 8 goes public!

    • Chris Nance

      they? He did it himself dude. :p

      • Andrew Roth

        Evaders.

      • felixtaf

        i0n1c is not in evad3rs and he s not supporting evad3rs either. Its highly unlikely that he will release it to public!

        Sorry, replied to u instead of @Leonard Wong

      • Andrew Roth

        I know. I’m just guessing what he meant.

      • Leonard Wong

        Sorry should have write ‘he’. But even if evaders have the jailbreak, they won’t release it

      • mlee19841

        Right about that. If they do have they won’t release it. I guess the other guy just did to see if it could be done. And that was that. No public release.

      • Leonard Wong

        Yup! You are right about that.

    • ernie sky

      Posting a screenshot and yet not releasing. What’s the point if not teasing? smh…

      • andy

        LOL true…..

  • tim

    if anyone knows *anything* about ionic, then they’ll know that this will never be released

    • mlee19841

      Kinda blows. Just got a replacement with 7,1,1 on it.

      • ic0dex

        Hahaha I broke my iPhone 5S camera and they replaced it with a 7.0.4. But mines a 32Gb I think the 16gb come in 7.1.1 now.

      • XboxOne

        How you break the camera on your iPhone 5s? Took a pic of an ugly person?

      • Matt

        Dead

      • Henrik Døsvik

        dayuuuum

      • TheShade247

        Or may be took Selfie, haha

      • leart

        Be aware of ssl bug, your browser is not safe on that firware

      • ✪ aidan harris ✪

        Ryan Petrich has a bandaid fix though. He is also kind enough to patch the bug in Mail.app that doesn’t encrypt attachments…

      • leart

        He needs to be aware anyway or not?
        I tested ryan petrich fix on my Ios 6 devices and can confirm that is not working perfectly on all firmwares, it worked on 6.1.2 and failed on 6.1.3, and there are some web pages to test that bug but idb wont let me to post the links

      • Niclas

        It fixes the bug but some tests see your IOS version and determine that it is not secure in that way.

      • Matt

        I’m stil on 7.0.4 haven’t downloaded the patch and so far I’ve been fine.

      • leart

        You will notice anything, just someone with wifi privileges can take your credentials, thats it, its all about privacy 🙂

  • Steve Zou

    Hey, Scotty
    Jesus, man

    • Christopher Dominguez

      I’m Jewish you D*ck!
      Stop rubbing it in…
      And my names not even Scotty!

  • TheShade247

    This guy is a di*k, always trolling about stuff that he can’t deal with.

  • James Gunaca

    Gee thanks for rubbing it on, i0n1c.

  • Tony

    He can keep it, this guy has proven time and time again that he has talent but it’s for his glory and not that of the community. It’s pretty sad because he could help others but just refuses to do so. I would love to be proven wrong though.

    • Dani Hayes

      I commend him. He does stuff for himself not for the money. I’m sure if he wanted to he could release and make money but he seems like has morals and such with the JB scene.

      Sure he teases but it’s not like he’s doing it to tease to build up “donations.”

      Evasi0n 7 was nothing more than a way to make money. It back fired for the Evaders.

    • Shingo

      i dont think he has talent other than editing video and picture…. why i know becoz it just talk and show off no proof other than himself so it just bs

      • John Sklikas

        You’re obviously new here! i0n1c built the iOS 4.0 and 4.1 jailbreaks. Oh and let me think. Google “iOS Hacker Handbook”. A book about becoming a jailbreak hacker (you need a good background of course) written by Stefan Esser (i0n1c). Want more? He gives a speak in Hack In The Box conference every year.

  • Wolfer

    Oh i0n1c!!! A talented guy, but forgot a long time ago, why we are a family, a comunity of, for, jailbreakers, hackers, helpers, etc. everything is about helping each other in this comunity. Not about each one individualy!!! He forgot about this and the basic principples of family!!!

    • mlee19841

      He’s on the outside of the circle of trust!

      • Wolfer

        Sad, but true!!! God bless him, so he can see the light of our family again!!!, but trusting him again will be very difficult for our comunity!!!

      • Liam Mulcahy

        agree

    • Shingo

      he has no family, he lives under bridge hahahah no offense

  • Adrian

    Ionic hates me so much that he has me blocked from following him lol

    • mlee19841

      Lol.

    • Carlos Gomes

      He doesn’t hate you specifically, he hates everyone who has a different opinion from his – and yeah, I’m blocked as well.

    • David Gitman

      Me too lol

      • andy

        Lol im not 😛 idk him but now i do since he teased us about his jailbroken ios 7.1.1 -.-

    • XboxOne

      l0n1c sounds like a crybaby.

      • Carlos Gomes

        He has some deep self-esteem issues.

  • mlee19841

    Lol

    • Dan

      shameless ego stroking if you ask me.

  • Liam Mulcahy

    Is this a failbreak?

    • andy

      Sorry, yes this is a failbreak enjoy being failbroken 😀 😉

  • Bob

    There’s a lot of hate between i0n1c and NitoTV, NitoTV has sent out more than a dozen hateful tweets to i0n1c and they’re quite mean.

    • Bob

      What he’s doing is not cool. Ionic has also responded with a childish tweet.

  • Alberto Espinal

    I can’t stand this guy! He does this all the time, he is full of if!!

  • Mohammad Ridwan

    Esser is a c*nt.

  • Sleetui

    Don’t forget about winocm jailbreaking her iphone 4.

  • Thomas Flores

    This is just gonna confuse all those who keep asking IDB every week if theirs gonna be a 7.1.1 jailbreak. And every week Cody, Jeff, & Sebastian have to constantly say that their will be no jailbreak due to the possibility of burning exploits that they could use in 8.x

    • andy

      Yeah : i feel sorry for Cody, Jeff and Sebastian for constantly saying “No jailbreaking for ios 7.1 or ios 7.1.1 due to the possibility of burning exploits”.

  • 空白

    Dudes a DB, he shouldn’t even get press for it. He acts like he’s the only one with time on their hands to JB. I’m sure there are dozens of people out there in the world that can JB past 7.1 people a lot more talented than him. And yet he still makes it on mad sites. I’ll wait with my i5 till the 6/Air comes out with iOS 8 and happily wait for a JB for that. Rinse and repeat. Let this dude write his books and hate from afar.

  • Shingo

    i0n1c cant do zhit,,, he just great on editing screenshot to fake it… i know becoz he never share so no proof he smart hahahaha

    • andy

      Lol (y)

  • Eli Montoya

    He probably just changed his version number.. Like so;

    • Donovan

      “iOS I0n1c.sux” hahaha

  • vin

    if i0n1c doesn’t release this, it’s alright to assume the picture is doctored

    • David Gitman

      he wont

  • disqusted

    Liiieeesss!

  • Fevostone

    Get a nexus 5 all the stuff you want and need in cydia you can have like show box for movies ,quick reply, control centre, themes and some of the stuff ur waiting for in iPhone 6 like a 4.7″ 1080p display and wireless charging don’t get me wrong I love iOS and idevices I have many but this waiting for jailbreaks all the time is a pain or and you can get the nexus 5 for half the price as well

    • a3yu

      and i can also have a big group of viruses and malware…no thx.

      • Fevostone

        Not if you know wot ur doing..!

      • a3yu

        of course but not at 100% ^^

  • Donovan

    Wait, I don’t get that “btw, it’s sunday” part? It has to mean something right? Why else would it be in this article.

    • Sachmach29

      A couple days ago, he tweeted something like, “Sunday is funday.”

      • Donovan

        Ah i see

  • smtp25

    Just because of all of the whiney ungrateful bitches that have posted I hope he holds off unitl ios8 and doesn’t burn it now on 7.1

    if it is for real I hope all the haters out of principal refuse to use it

    • Chun-Li aka ThunderThighs

      He doesn’t release these. He’s against jailbreaks because of piracy. He is a troll not working with evaders.

  • Dani Hayes

    This is why they need to include others into the jailbreak scene and forget about money.

  • jz100

    Maybe its just a doctored photo.

  • jz100

    Why do you all assume that its real? I know nothing about him, but if he is the person you describe, then it probably is fake.

  • leart

    Nah I don’t trust this guy at all, most of the time he is having fun trolling on twitter anyone who is asking for a jailbreak, and let’s say the truth , jailbreaking is not needed that much these days, i was jailbroken for years but the only reason was zephyr to preserve home button wearing out and yeah ncsetting .
    But how about security? I cant trust to use my credit card on my jailbroken device, really who knows what the hackers out on my device during the jailbreak process ? A jailbroken I device is equal android. It was really fun all these years but I give up 🙂

    • Dan

      I’ve been using my credit card on my jailbroken phone for years, never had a problem. Even then, if your credit card gets ripped off, the credit card company refunds you. I don’t have any internationally sensitive information on my phone so I prefer to take the risk, jailbreaking still brings many benefits imo.

      • leart

        Its not only the problem of buying online, it is that you know that your whole device security level is a scaled down when you jailbreak, but its a choice i can understand that

  • Sachmach29

    From my understanding, the jailbreak actually exploits the kernel which is changed with EVERY single iOS update (even minor ones). Therefore, if he doesn’t decide to sell it (which probably won’t happen), he wouldn’t be wasting any exploits on iOS 8. The downside to this is that it will only work with the firmware he releases it for, and the next firmware update (possibly 7.1.2) would automatically fix it without Apple putting work into patching exploits. If the evad3rs found this, a public release would be definite, but sadly i0n1c is known for selling things like this. :/

  • Ishaan Malhotra

    Could i personally ask for the jb tool via email. BECAUSE I WANT JAILBREAK!!

  • Sanjog Kapoor

    I Think Apple Has Heired All Good Hackers And Now They are working on securing ios..not jailbreaking..thats why there no software unlock like sn0wbreze that was best software unlock for free..i think apple is giving high salary to hackers…

  • Matt

    I’m willing to pay for it.
    But them again I stil am jailbroken on my 5s

  • vin

    if you’re secretly hoping i0n1c is gonna give only you the jailbreak software because you’re not a cunt to him, damn alrighty. (:

  • iltas

    can i jailbrek ip5 7.1 or 7.1.1

    • Jeremy

      No.

  • At least we know the jailbreak is possible…

  • DylanSC14

    Jailbreak with iPod Touch 5G?

  • felixtaf

    “He stepped out of the jailbreak community, because everyone is such a cunt.”
    Seriously? This guy does this all the time. No one disagreeign with his talent. But he jus shows off that he has a jailbreak and will not release it to public. Whats the point in teasing millions of people then? Now tell me who is a cunt?
