winocm ios 7.1.1

Hot on the heels of i0n1c’s proofs that he had jailbroken an iPhone 5c running iOS 7.1.1, iOS hacker winocm has come up with her own untethered jailbreak successfully running on an iPhone 4 with iOS 7.1.1.

While not as impressive as i0n1c’s proof, winocm claims that her jailbreak could be brought to newer devices if someone was willing to “put in the effort.”

The video description reads the following:

This is the culmination of boredom, 3 hours of work and lots of masochism.


Oh yeah, this is iOS 7.1.1 untethered if you didn’t notice earlier. (iPhone 4 GSM though, don’t want to mess with any other devices that I have. Would work elsewhere… if you put in the effort. ジ)

A jailbreak running on an iPhone 4 is arguably not as exciting as a jailbreak running on an iPhone 5s, but this is still very encouraging news coming from winocm. It’s hard to imagine she would release anything in the next few weeks since we are so close to iOS 8. Hopefully this work will be the basis of something bigger that would benefit all iPhone users regardless of the model.

    Interesting… but I’ll wait for something legit.

    • mlee19841

      Sadly it won’t be until iOS 8

      • bgk17

        I figured.

  • Palmer Paul

    Should be 5c:A jailbreak running on an iPhone 4 is arguably not as exciting as a jailbreak running on an iPhone 5s…

    • No. I meant 5s. I wasn’t specifically talking about i0n1c’s jb

      • McBobson

        The URL has a mistake. The title says ‘her’ but the URL says ‘his’.

      • Palmer Paul

        Ah. Never mind then 🙂

  • Jack

    “iOS hacker winocm has come up with her own untethered jailbreak successfully running on an iPhone 4 with iOS 7.1.1.” – “her own…” – did I miss something? O.o

    • Chuck Smith

      Winocm is a girl.

      • Jack

        I heard his/her voice on WWJC.. I doubt it is a girl..

      • Chuck Smith

        He tweeted a while ago that he was a girl.

      • mlee19841

        Lol he tweeted he was a girl.

      • Combi

        Guy In Real Life? 😛

      • Sachmach29

        I read tweets about it before, the people there FaceTimed her and confirmed that she is a girl, winocm decided to make her voice sound like this to make the myth perpetuate.

    • Fırat Çiftçi

      The url says ‘his’ but the title says ‘her’. Weird :/

  • Framboogle

    That moment when you find out Winocm is actually a girl

    • Nicolas Cage

      A girl with a male voice :O

    • XboxOne

      I know right.

    • Hahaha, he’s just trolling (I think). This (http://bit ly/1nXgff1) has a very low probability of being a girl’s voice, at-least to my ears.

      • Fırat Çiftçi

        I don’t think anyone would troll about their gender.

      • xSeriouSx

      • Fırat Çiftçi

        Trust me, she is a girl/woman/whatever you want to say.

      • Sachmach29

        That’s not her real voice she’s been doing it for years to perpetuate the myth. It has been confirmed multiple times that winocm is indeed a girl.

      • Really? Do you have any links?

  • Ismail ‘marco’ Azeem

    there is an Gender issue with this article or am i reading it wrong?

  • mlee19841

    So they both are females?

  • Umut Topuz

    Anyone looked at startup logos and the capacity of it?

    • Moustafa Homs

      Yeah i noticed that too !! the apple logo was ios 6 then it turns up to the ios 7 logo !!

      • Nicolas Cage

        It has a dualboot. (6 & 7). She didn’t want to loose her content on iOS 6 :p

  • Leviscus Tempris

    Seems like a better idea to wait until iOS eight comes out, then release a jailbreak that covers 7.1.1, 7.1, and iOS eight all at the same time. That way exploits don’t get wasted.

    • NaSty

      Apparently Apple already knows about this bug/exploit so releasing it now would seem to be the thing to do :/

  • Kevin Kheira

    iOS 8 for general public will come out with new iPhones between sept. and nov. so 7.1.1 jailbreak will be good till then.

  • Matt

    I cannot wait until WWDC
    So pumped to see what Apple has to offer
    And I swear if quick reply ain’t included then Auki and I are going to be best friends forever. (Not that we’re not already)

  • sivkai

    Sebastien, has there been a gender typo or am I wrong in thinking winocm is a guy? :s

    • She’s a woman

      • Damian

        she is a man :p

      • Kenan


    • Capirexz

      Whatever man , Im still waiting for 7.1.1 Untethered JB

  • Mr.Coolfreak

    Whenever Jeff talked about winocm, he said “he” and winocm talked at jailbreakcon thorigh favetime audio, sounded like a male.

    I’m so over this whole Jailbraking thing. My iPhone 5S keeps crashing just so I can have a tweak that’s “cool” but yet I don’t even use it. I feel like jailbreaking is not what it use to be. Then you get all the regular tweaks being released and everyone is charging $.99 for them when back then this stupid tweak would have been free. Also for every tweak there is always an easier solution.

    Back in the days when we had Jailbroken our iPhone running iOS 2.0

    • Damian

      you are somehow right but forgetting about a major thing. Back in the the old day, jailbreak community was not very demanding. You put on cydia the simplest tweak that adds one tiny function and everyone was happy.

      Now we have tons of tweaks that can do the same thing and more and more. These tweak are so complex sometimes that it is hard to get around it. And they can perform so many things. It is not anymore a simple tweak like you remember before. Now the developer actually has to spend weeks or months on this tweak, whereas before it would probably take him one day to add copy/paste function or similar.

      Of courser there are still today simple tweaks that cost, yet they should not.

    • Nelson

      Nobody forced you to jailbreak. And if you don’t use a tweak, why would you keep it installed if it’s making your phone crash? Lol

  • mlee19841

    Guess it’s just back and forth until iOS 8.

  • Alan

    To everyone who got to ios 7.1.1 by updating & is complaining about a release, I don’t whats so hard about not updating !!

    • hkgsulphate

      check your email pal

      • Alan

        Relax ✋

    • XboxOne

      Which theme is in the 1st homescreen?

      • Alan


  • Guest

    This appears at 1:30. Weird…

  • Guest

    This appears at 1:30.

  • hkgsulphate

    NOOOOO leave the loopholes for iOS 8!!!! o.o

  • Matt Taylor

    This should be released to Saurik and to high end developers such as Ryan Petrich etc so they have the opportunity to update their apps / Cydia, in case a public jailbreak is ever released!

    However saying that, I doubt very much another public Jailbreak will be seen before iOS8…

  • Chun-Li aka ThunderThighs

    For everyone who doesn’t know wincom is indeed a guy and is trolling. Tweets slightly change over to more girlish persona. Too late

  • Eikast

    This whole time I thought she a guy.

  • ✪ aidan harris ✪

    Too bad this will never be released…

  • ✪ aidan harris ✪

    He? She? It? Alien-From-Outer-Space? Does it really matter? What matters is that this video clearly shows that iOS 7.1.1 can be jailbroken. Whether it will happen anytime soon though is another thing…

  • Eni

    plot twist, she is the guy who won eurovision ’14

    • Antonakis Kipouros Nikopolidis

      LOL don’t remind me, still having nightmares.
      Best explanation ever!!!

  • Senthet

    Even if I don’t like iOS 7 it’s nice to see it’s possible to jailbreak.

  • Pablo

    I thought winocm was he not she :O you get to learn something new everyday hahah


    After watching those, now I’m sure he’s a woman 😛

  • Jonathan

    You misspelled the title. *wincom 🙂

    • No, you’ve been misreading Winocm (http://bit ly/1gF9Y5M) as Wincom, like me.

      • Jonathan

        thanks. 😛

  • Sachmach29

    winocm is a girl and she is not trolling. i0n1c is a guy. Now everyone stop freaking out about gender, Sebastien made a few typos before.

    Yes, winocm is a girl, her voice is deep in videos to perpetuate the myth.

  • james

    That just shows how a tease she is , that slut

  • james

    That just shows how she is slut

  • abdullah575
