i0n1c's jailbreak video

iOS developer iH8sn0w confirms that the just released iOS 7.1.1 untethered jailbreak burns through two exploits that could have potentially been used towards an iOS 8 jailbreak. I want to emphasize the word “potentially” in that sentence, because it is fully possible that Apple would have patched the vulnerabilities before the release of iOS 8 in the first place. But now, they most certainly will.

iH8sn0w says that the only exploits burned relate to code signing and the kernel, alongside the “syslogd chown” vulnerability that was already disclosed at the Black Hat hacking conference in August. Interestingly, the jailbreak also contains code that will make it compatible with iOS 7.1.2 once the software update is publicly released, which could be as early as this Friday… 

The tweet almost gives off the impression that the iOS 7.1.1 untethered jailbreak could have burned through even more exploits, so there is some good news here. It is also refreshing that another jailbreak team has been able to step in and release a new tool, instead of the community placing all of the pressure on the evasi0n team to uncover new vulnerabilities.

The release of the iOS 7.1.1 untethered jailbreak just three months before iOS 8 is expected to be released has sparked an age-old debate about the timing of jailbreak releases. There are those that are happy that an iOS 7.1.1 jailbreak has been released, while others are disappointed that the exploits were wasted on a smaller point update instead of a major new version like iOS 8.

What do you think: should this jailbreak have waited?

  • awesome news!!!

  • Fikri CanCankurtaran

    They will find another exploits for iOS 8 anyway,they always do.

    • logsys

      I can’t understand how they don’t use exploits for “further versions” and they keep “searching for vulnerabilities”

      • Cjoy

        It’s hard to keep an exploits this days. Cause all they find is software wise. While in the “olden times” dev find it in the hardware (which can never be patched while you have that vulnerable hardware devise)

      • logsys

        but they will never release it then!

  • mlee19841

    damn that’s crazy. well i know people that wanted a 7.1.1. jailbreak. well we got it.

    • Lepoidevin1984

      Me I wanted it lol

  • Ethan Mahmood

    Don’t think it is a big problem but oh well. xD

  • Darren

    Should have waited for iOS 8. Not really a big deal though, iOS 8 is finally good enough that I don’t miss my Jailbreak.

    • Danial

      IOS is never good enough without jailbreak!

      • Darren

        I respectfully disagree. I think iOS 8 is good enough. I will be Jailbreaking iOS 8 when I can, however.

      • Elias Chao

        One thing would be awesome with Jailbreak on iOS 8: Widgets made for each app on the lockscreen, that could be great.

        Also, tweaks to use swipes instead of pressing the Home Button, for instance, are always my favorites.

      • Fırat Çiftçi

        People said jailbreaking died when multitasking and home screen backgrounds were introduced in iOS 4. People said jailbreaking died when notification center was introduced in iOS 5. People didn’t say anything about iOS 6 because it sucked. People said jailbreaking died when control center was introduced in iOS 7. Yes, there are a lot of great features in iOS 8. But think of ALL the great possibilities that jailbreaking can improve it. Just think.

      • Darren

        I agree, there’s definitely room for improvement. I’m still sticking with iOS 8 though and waiting for a Jailbreak for that. Which goes back to my original comment: They should’ve saved the exploits.

    • Butch Danes

      For me personally, until they reinvent tweaks like Zephyr to allow gestures for multitasking so you don’t need to use the home button each time iOS 8 will never be good enough. They’re also missing tweaks like: SwipeSelection, CallBar, Speak Notifications and even CleverPin. Those might not be like big deals to you, but it’s the simple things that make iOS better and that only comes from jailbreaking until Apple takes note and adds it to later versions.

      • Timothy

        3rd party keyboards in iOS 8 might support a SwipeSelection-like function…

      • ins0mniac1

        A swipe-selection-style-keyboard has unfortunately been ruled out due to limitations Apple has imposed on the way keys can function in the API.

  • Aqeel Ahmed

    Yes they could have waited till iOS8 comes out

  • mlee19841

    they were trigger happy!!

  • leart

    cmon, life is short , better a jb now than one tomorrow 🙂

    • regkilla

      No. Idiots on 7.1.x should still suffer for updating.

      • Paymon John Vafa

        what if my phone was stolen and I had to get a replacement with 7.1?

      • regkilla

        you should learn how to keep your iPhone in your pocket when you’re in public.

      • James Gunaca

        You’ll change your tune the day your phone gets thrown into restore and you are forced to restore to a non-jailbreakable fw!

      • regkilla

        Why would I put my iPhone into restore? You’re stupid.

      • James Gunaca

        Perhaps you’ve never experienced a situation where your phone enters into restore mode on its own as the result of a crash or something not directly initiated by the user via the restore function in iTunes or in iOS. A phone going into restore isn’t always a 100% a user-initiated action.

      • Johnny

        “You’ve never experienced a situation where your phone enters into restore mode on its own as the result of a crash or something.” Explain to me how the hell that happens? If you’re talking about jailbreaking then you’re beyond stupid. I’ve been jailbreaking for almost 9 years and my phone and ipod has never gone into restore mode unless you’re installing crap that doesn’t work on the firmware that you’re on or it’s bad news. “A phone going into restore isn’t always a 100% user-initiated action. Where did you get those facts from? It’s just like those posts that people complain omg I’m using some pirate repo and I installed something and I had to restore my phone because I’m a loser and I lack knowledge about jailbreaking and failed to read anything about jailbreaking. Stop making sorry ass excuses.

      • James Gunaca

        I have had a situation where my phone rebooted from a tweak and got put into restore mode. I don’t recall if it was iPhone OS 3.0 or 4.0, but it happened, my phone got bricked and I had no way to restore without plugging into iTunes and doing a complete restore of the phone. No DFU mode worked, nothing. So, the fact comes from experience. Not some pirate repo, or being a loser, or lacking knowledge of jailbreaking.

        Perhaps it was a typo on your part, but, jailbreaking an iPhone for 9 years? How is that even possible when iPhone and jailbreak for iPhone OS 1.0 came out less than 7 years ago?

        I’m not beyond stupid, but you’re beyond immature.

      • Johnny

        Thank you very much for calling me beyond immature. I meant 5 years. Are you sure you’re not stupid? iPhone OS 3.0? The firmware is called iOS not OS. You had a tweak that put your phone into Recovery mode? How does that happen? That has never happened to me before because I read and studied on how to fix things like that and woah it never happened to me. You’re an idiot who should never ever jailbreak again. Thank you very much for wasting your time replying back to me with your cute little wedding picture. You’re pathetic.

      • PiraCee

        iOS wasn’t called iOS until iOS 4 when Mr Jobs renamed it from iPhone OS on stage.

        Maybe you missed that while you are slating others who indeed had and have genuine reasons to restore a jailbroken phone.

        Never had tweak that throws you in Recovery Mode..?
        Someone never bought IntelliScreen X did they.

        Calling someone an stupid or an idiot when you state you have been jailbreaking 9 years.. That’s a cool story bro.

      • Johnny

        Someone never bought IntelliScreen X? What does that have to do with anything? I did purchase Intelliscreen x on ios 5 and ios 7. Your point? I never had any issues with Intelliscreen x? I love how you point out my mistake. I forgot that you are a god. Sorry. Ohhhh no I said 9 years. Such a big deal.

      • James Gunaca

        You’re lack of jailbreaking knowledge is showing if you didn’t know or care to acknowledge that it was iPhone OS before it was iOS.

        And your immaturity is showing when you attack me for my profile picture which is pulled from Facebook.

      • jake kneller

        Just love the fact how you comeback to correct your self from 9 to 5 when those two numbers are not placed on almost any keyboard next to or even close enough for the common typo and actually apple referred to iOS which is an abreavation of iPhone operating system or now I guess I device operating system apple refereed to iOS as iPhone os

      • jake kneller

        He means bricking it which many times isn’t even in the hands of the user any given trek could crash your device and brick your device it could happen to any jailbreak user

      • Johnny

        I just love the fact how you say any given trek. What the hell is a trek? Do you even know the real meaning of what a bricked device is?

      • jake kneller

        Tweak

      • Jerwyn Feria

        True jailbreakers know how to get themselves out of recovery mode(95% unlikely on iOS 6+. Ios 5 and lower uses tiny umbrella and redsn0w). True jailbreakers know how to fix themselves from apple bootloops(mines was caused by (battery doctor tweak, fixed by allowing the phone to fix itself with rewriting permissions after clearing system caches). True jailbreakers knows that software update in settings won’t ever download while device is jail broken. True jailbreakers knows how to navigate through iTunes to prevent updates . True jailbreakers knows how to let go of a jailbreak.

      • Kyle

        My pocket is very useful if some thief comes and robs me at gun point.

      • regkilla

        Stay away from bad areas. Problem solved.

      • James Gunaca

        A bad area is defined as where bad things happen…and bad things can happen anywhere, so he should just stay inside at all times so he never has a reason to lose his jailbreak?

      • PiraCee

        If Johnny speaks to everyone like that, i assume all his does is jailbreak, alone, in his room, thinking of nasty un-needed drivel to spout at people.

      • RarestName

        He is superior.

        /s

      • Johnny

        If you’re talking about me. Thank you Very much.

      • Johnny

        Well actually there is nothing wrong with being alone in my room jailbreaking because why would I need people to be around me while I jailbreak. HURRR DUUUR LOOK GUYS IM JAILBREAKING MY IPHONE SUCH A GOD. I love how you use big words to make yourself seem so intelligent and I also love the fact how you took the time out of your day to reply back to me and you think that your feedback is needed? You just stooped to my level by even commenting back to me. I love the people on this website.

      • Palmer Paul

        @disqus_oVe1oO0azg:disqus: So you’re acknowledging your ignorance and rudeness?

      • Kyle

        Robbery is not ultimately linked to territories, although bad ones raise the possibility of bad encounters.

      • jake kneller

        Such as piracee mentioned intelliscreen x a well known and said safe developer made a few mistakes in code and caused some restores It happens even with tweaks made by saurik him self is a tweak by saurik a bad area the man who created cydia

      • jake kneller

        You took your iPhone into the worst area full of crashes you have no right to say just dugout device clean and perfect when you stepped opened your iPhone up to the jailbreak

      • Antzboogie

        Then leave your phone at home instead of keeping it in your pocket. I would fight for my iPhone, but not be stupid if ten dudes approach me lol.

      • James Gunaca

        Leave your iPhone at home? You guys are really stretching to paint someone who lost their phone as the bad guy when it comes to wanting a jailbreak for a newer firmware. Geez. All because you don’t want to wait a few more weeks for another jailbreak?

      • Antzboogie

        You misunderstood I was talking to James not the original commentator. I was being sarcastic I wouldn’t ever leave my phone at home thats the point don’t have a smartphone if you have to hide it every second that’s what all these insurance companies are for.

      • James Gunaca

        My mistake. Thanks for clearing that up!

      • jake kneller

        Your comments are very rude and there are so many ways one could have lost there Pre 7.1.X jailbreak and iOS 8 wouldn’t have been jail broken the first day or first week anyway plus there’s prolly 4 more betas to come many exploits will be patched bathos fall anyway and it will st least take a month or two so now you go update and enjoy the ui changes and various big fixes of the newer firmware

      • Filthy

        Ok I have jailbroken and fixed many devices, but some time ago I tried jailbreaking an iPod Touch 5 and an iPhone 5 on 7.0.4 with the evasi0n7 and it failed on me, it was giving me the apple loop so I had to restored both of the devices and they were stuck on 7.1.1. It wasn’t my fault because I also jailbroke my 5s that time and it was successful with the same evasi0n7 software (my 5s is on 7.0.4 right now). I honestly did not think they where going to waste a JB on 7.1.1, but hey they did and I’m glad they released this JB! 😀

      • regkilla

        When jailbreaking something could go wrong. Jailbreaking can be risky.

      • James Gunaca

        Which is why you shouldn’t be so harsh on the people who are happy about a 7.1.1 jb. It’s not always a “stupid” users fault they get screwed out of a jailbreak.

      • Johnny

        It’s not always a “stupid” users fault they get screwed out of a jailbreak. Waaaaaa waaaaaa I can’t go on YouTube and type in how to jailbreak whatever firmware that I’m on and read the directions on the jailbreak because I’m an idiot. Is it really that hard to use idiot proof jailbreak software or am I missing something here?

      • James Gunaca

        You’re missing something. Sometimes the software doesn’t install properly. Can’t wait for you to experience it for yourself.

      • Johnny

        How am I missing something? You follow the directions on every jailbreak. Don’t install Over the Air and restore to a clean device and set up new device before jailbreaking on a newer version. Very simple to follow. Very easy to understand. If you don’t restore or set up your device as new you will run into problems. The struggle is real to read and follow directions. I forgot.

      • James Gunaca

        Again, you’re over-simplifying something that is nothing close to simple. Yes, the instructions may be simple, but the code execution that’s going on in your devices is anything but simple. It doesn’t work properly 100% of the time; that’s a fact.

      • Johnny

        So that’s a fact now? Your facts? Sources.

  • Paul Hinks

    what people dont understand its not a easy job to find these exploits and it takes time yeah they may release a update not longer after a ios release but these guys try and get stuff done for free as well i say let them have a chance at something to perfect it rather than a bodge job where it may not work

    • Rowan09

      Almost all of the resent jailbreak relapses were filled with bugs. You will never really know about all the bugs until there’s a public release.

  • Vin Tendo

    so why wait then.. lets convert these Exploits over for a iOS 8 beta JB.. might as well

    • Johnny

      Hurry lets waste exploits for the ios 8 betas! So intelligent.

  • Ahmed

    Is it safe to install this jailbreak?

    • Jeremy

      Yes. iH8Sn0w says that it is and if you’re like me and could not find the uncheck box to not install the pirated appstore then you can always just uninstall it through Cydia.

  • jp2002

    if he knew, this exploit is pretty important, why did he share it in the conference. IMO jb is losing its significance. Also I’m not sure about the future of mobile substrate with swift coming in. Swift will remove the objective c runtime which is used by captain hook (mobile substrate) to load dylib dynamically.

    • Jesse

      Objective-C is not going anywhere in iOS, Objective-C was the only option before, Apple just gave developers another option. It doesn’t matter which language you use to make the dylib because in the end it will compile it in to the same as if it was programmed in Objective-C.

  • Jeremy

    Sort of off topic but just thought I should say that iFile and Auxo 2 are working with 7.1.1 although it says it is not compatible with it 😛

    • mlee19841

      so is activator. it says incompatible as well.

      • Jeremy

        NoNewsIsGoodNews is not compatible though :/

    • Rowan09

      Do you know if Safari Upload Enabler works with 7.1.1?

      • Jeremy

        No sorry, I never used that tweak with the 7.0.x jailbreak :/

  • Chris Tangler

    With all of the new APIs that are open now there has to be some sort of vulnerabilities in iOS eight. That being said, I’m all for this jailbreak

  • Matt Dowdy

    Anyone wanting a jailbreak on 7.1 .1 will say they’re glad it was released and anyone that has a jailbroken device prior to 7.1.1 is going to say they should have waited it’s that simple.

    • James Gunaca

      I’m on 7.0.6 and I’m glad they didn’t wait. I’m happy to be upgrading to 7.1.1 once this JB is released for Mac and the tweaks I use regularly are updated.

      iOS 8 jailbreak will still come, but its urgency is lower with all the announcements Apple made re: Extensions, QuickReply and so forth.

  • Marcus

    I can’t find the words to describe how pissed I am about a 7.1 jailbreak being released…

    • JS3

      go scream into a pillow… you’ll be okay i promise.

    • Rowan09

      Why?

    • James Gunaca

      You can’t find the words because it’s not worth being pissed about, right?

      • Marcus

        You should read some of my other comments on this post.

      • James Gunaca

        I actually just did on some of the other threads. I totally hear where you are coming from, but it’s really just conjecture as to whether or not these exploits would be present in iOS 8. I don’t think it will make a big difference when it comes to iOS 8, but agree we should let the devs behind major JBs make the final call.

        However, if I recall correctly, exploits in iOS 6 were ‘burned’ and then we still got the iOS 7 jailbreak before the end of 2013…whereas the iOS 6 jailbreak took until February of 2013 after a long hiatus from the last iOS 5 jailbreak.

        Plus, with all the new coding changes like extensibility, handoff and many kernel level changes in iOS 8, more exploits are bound to appear; even in the iOS 8 betas which wouldn’t even include code in previous releases. I know these don’t just appear out of nowhere, but there are millions out there with iOS 7.1+ devices (either purchased or accidentally upgraded or stolen or whatever) who want to enjoy a jailbreak and shouldn’t be ‘punished’ because some devs decided to release this.

      • Marcus

        Yeah I agree with you on that. The major jailbreak developers should have the final decision. Sadly, that’s not the way it works though.

        Also, all of your points are valid. It seems like that would be the case and I have a feeling it will be. It’ll be interesting to see how all of this plays out towards the end of 2014. Thanks for the enlightening lol.

      • James Gunaca

        Thanks for being level-headed about it. Unlike those guys regkilla and Johnny who tore in to me for trying to have a constructive debate about it…after ripping into some guy who got his phone stolen!

      • Marcus

        Yeah that’s what I’m trying to do. I was trying to have a constructive debate with everyone and being diplomatic but not everyone works like that. I’m glad we could both agree on something!

      • jake kneller

        Nice job there those guys have no right to be so rude when if you look and think about it idb is ran by nice people for nice people on the world of apple who want information

  • Tony

    As as I mentioned last month, anything used on a 7.1.1 jailbreak would have already been known by apple. They won’t bother patching it because they are focused on the next os. If 8 were to be delayed say till December then they would certainly fix this in 7.1.3 or even a 7.2 but there’s no chance of that happening. 8 obviously will have these fixes but with any new release a bunch of new bugs come through.

    • mlee19841

      got that right. when they fix a problem it creates a opening..

    • They are still updating iOS 6 to include patches for the jailbreak.

  • Domodo

    So, apart from that piracy app, is this jailbreak legitimate?

    • mlee19841

      yea.

  • Chris

    im going to jailbreak now finally i thought ios 8 was cool at first but over all the jailbreak community has so much more to offer

  • Michael Jay Delaney

    Befuddling that this debate ensues. As stated over again throughout time (and it will be said as many times more), the numerous “teams” behind our beloved JBs over the years have, more often than not, gone without legitimate compensation. It’s something done in their free time as a hobby. These people are, well, people. They have lives, school, families, relationshits, pets, etc. Patience needs to be the name of the game here. Sketchy teams need not apply for the limelight in the form of burning exploits sooner than a high profile update. When you look at the big picture, we can survive just fine without our phones being jailbroken. How long did we go before it even existed? It seems silly to build something and release it just to be up to date with the latest bug fixes. (Security means nothing; there will always be a better hacker) The JB community, developers, hackers, users, pirates (love ’em or hate ’em, they are not going anywhere), all have to realize that holding out for Apple to release it’s New.0 is always the better decision.

  • dsgcobra

    If I am jailbroken on 7.0.4, do i upgrade to 7.1.1 and then just run this jailbreak, will everything still work?

    • Yousef Diab

      Don’t upgrade. Most of the tweaks and many other things aren’t compatible yet.

      • dsgcobra

        cool thanks!!! but for future reference if everything worked that’s basically how i would do it?

      • Yousef Diab

        Yup.. Since you have a jailbroken device, Don’t upgrade it now. Wait until most of the tweaks work. Then you’re good to go :p

      • Rowan09

        Is that confirmed that the tweaks will not work? Most tweaks say IOS 5-7.x.x

    • Unless the package specifically relies on the firmware version within iOS 7, you’re fine.

  • Matt Dowdy

    This is excellent news for iPhone 4 and iPad 2 owners isn’t it? Considering ios8 won’t be available for them and 7.1.2 will likely be the last iOS update for those devices

    • Christian Mejía

      iPad 2 is getting iOS 8

    • Kyle

      Fail lol. Have an iPad 2 w/ iOS8b2 in our household and ur telling me it is not getting iOS 8 hahahaha!

  • Moses

    This is so awesome! Now I got to use my ipad mini at full power!!!

  • Jamessmooth

    Goddamnit. I’d rather have ios 8 jailbreak early then get this now. Hopefully the 2 exploits aren’t a big deal.

    • Tony

      Their not, Apple knew about them already. This was reported several times in the past few months. A lot of people are freaking out about possible IOS 8 jailbreak info when bugs like these were already going to be patched. They always find a way to hack in after a new OS release and they’ll do the same with 8.

  • Nachie Samuels

    Someone should make a list of tweaks that will work iOS 7.1.1

    • Christian Mejía

      Maybe you should…

    • Rowan09

      I’m going to jailbreak an old iPhone and let you know.

  • sriram varadarajulu

    Well I believe this jailbreak is kinda more targeted to the iPhone 4 users as I heard that iOS 7.1 and above seems to run faster on the iPhone 4 compared to iOS 7 which I’m hoping is true as I’m a fellow iPhone 4 user 😛

  • Jordan

    I really don’t mind because I’m still on an iPhone 4 because I’m to poor to get a 4S.

  • James Gunaca

    Hopefully it works on 7.1.2, but, I’m happy I’ll be able to upgrade to 7.1.1 soon. 7.0.6 is missing out on a few things; nothing worth losing a JB for, but seeing people with 7.1+ and not getting some app updates irked me.

    Thanks PanGu.

  • Jordan D’Souza

    Nah… It’s good time to jailbreak again 😀

  • Nirvana

    They may just take time to untethered jailbreak 8.x! Still welcome such an effort!

    • Wilfred Lim

      it may takes longer time because 2 useful exploits used up…you need to relocate another (one or more) to the picture then figure out how to chain them to works…that’s not an easy task n certainly needs some smart brains…
      the fact that they “steal” the exploit from i0nic to use in it, and a timing where iOS8 about to go, not only unethical, but not count as a good strategic point of time…

      reading from their website, the reason being to show that even Chinese developer can make the jailbreak, not letting the western team monopolise the limelight, is making me feel more disgusting….

      • Nirvana

        You may hate, I just don’t like the piracy store PP is installed (make people who use legit tweaks and apps angry) also I think releasing the tool after iOS 8 is jb would be the right time, this is a ‘show off’ just like you said!

  • Seere Petrova

    people can hack the icloud system and bypass it… so dont you people think they will find another exploit?

    • The two are completely different. My front door has a lock, so if someone can crack that, then surely they could crack the lock for the Pentagon. Fool

      • Seere Petrova

        yea but i remember apple saying it was the most secure… and if that was true.. i dont see how icloud was bypassed by some latino and spanish dudes…

      • Rak S

        Hackers have been hacking since the dawn of the computer and jailbreaking has been around since the arrival of the iPhone. New exploits will inevitably be found and only a “fool” would suggest that this is likely to stop.

  • JulianZH

    Ios 8 support 3rd party keyboard, jb is meaningless to me now.

  • Kyle

    So, updating to iOS 8 right now and when 7.1.2 comes out, I’m downgrading and jailbreaking again.

  • kamranm1200

    No, it actually only used one exploit. Not two.

  • mlee19841

    People with the 5s should be fine to upgrade to iOS 8. With the a7 chip and the 64bit. We should be fine for a couple major updates. So it u want to hold on to it for a couple more years. U should be good to go.

  • jake kneller

    It’s not like iOS 8 will never be jailbroken now it’s just gonna take longer so just jailbreak the highest firmware you can now and wait till the jailbreak comes out unless your jumping to new iPhone or your a dev you can wait to get the features of jailbreaking is that needed for you

  • Phil Randle

    I was running the iOS 8 beta, if anything 7.1.1 stock feels slightly slower the iOS 8 on my 5S. There definitely wasn’t a performance decrease if anything it was better.

    Usually the 3rd device in the chain slows down, so this year it should be the 4S, don’t think 5S will have any problems.

    • mlee19841

      Yea. The 5s will be fine for a couple more years. But hey it’s up to u if u don’t wanna upgrade.

    90% of the people who wants the jailbreak only wants it for the piracy.

    • Johnny

      Well I don’t pirate crap. I actually spent a lot of money on Cydia.

      • Jerwyn Feria

        Then your the ten percent of people who lose their jailbreak and wants to jailbreak that doesn’t pirate

    • Luke Foord

      I’ve been using jailbreak for a good six months now and I’ve known being able to pirate anything? How exactly do you do it? I’ve happily [aid around £50 for tweaks to enhance my user experience.

      • Jerwyn Feria

        I’m a pay for tweak guy too. But apparently there is to many ways to do so but I would stick with buying my product for the quality than the quantity.

    Could go both ways. If apple knows the exploits already, then yes make a jailbreak before it is patched. BUT if apple doesn’t know about it yet… This is burning exploits that could be used in a very cool ios 8 untethered jailbreak

  • Матт Реякіпѕ

    I’m kinda surprised evasion for 7.1.1 hasn’t been released yet. All Evaders is doing now by not releasing an update to evasion for 7.1.1. is keeping a lot of developers from updating their apps. They are not doing anyone any favors by waiting. After all the exploits are already exploited.

    Plus no matter how many exploits were “burned” in this update, there will always be new exploits in future releases. Each year Apple patches exploits and each year new ones appear. But I think 7.1.1 is more significant a jailbreak than iOS 8 will be seeing as iOS 8 will be more open to developers meaning less need to jailbreak. All we need to find out is how open iOS 8 is. Like will iOS 8 be open enough that a jailbreak app like LockInfo could find it’s way to the official AppStore? If so, what benefits will jailbreaking still have outside of cracked apps?

  • Khan DNA

    Yes, should have waited for iOS8.

    Those who didn’t update to 7.1.1 were now used to not having it, and similarly, those who did update to 7.1.1 were now used to having it (and counting days for iOS8 jailbreak instead). Anyway, I’m totally jailbreak noob 😉

  • Ondrej Sojka

    this JB should wait…

  • Lepoidevin1984

    I think it is fantastic with this jailbreak as the opurtinity for a final jailbreak for the iPhone 4 which will no longer supported with iOS 8

  • Nate Schnattle

    In my opinion, after the whole deal with ios 7 coming out and ruining the 6.x jailbreak, it made me realize that no matter how many ios x’s come out, you can still have one single ios that has been jailbroken, and just keep tweaking it to keep up with the current “trends of the ios”. I just got my iphone 4 jailbroken on 7.1, and I’m gonna keep it that way (yes I know the 4 is so outdated, but it works, deal with it).
