Have Pangu got something up their sleeve? Images showing an apparent iOS 10.3.1 jailbreak have surfaced on the web. While details are extremely thin on the ground at present, they appear to be genuine and are an encouraging sight for jailbreakers.
We will show you various ways to deal with Gatekeeper messages such as “This is an application downloaded from the Internet. Are you sure you want to open it?” and “This application can’t be opened because it was not downloaded from the App Store.”
Today saw the release of a new bootrom exploit for the iPhone 3GS, an unpatchable vulnerability which gives jailbreakers total control of this device forever.
Although the iPhone 3GS is now very much a legacy device and few users will be actively using them, the rarity of a bootrom exploit makes it worthy of note. There have been no publicly released exploits of this kind since limera1n, which supported only up to the iPhone 4.
Given the recent news that a jailbreak for tvOS 10.1.1 may be coming after all, we recently advised all Apple TV 4 owners to downgrade from tvOS 10.2 to tvOS 10.1.1 immediately before signing closes.
Hand in hand with the possibility of a jailbreak comes the necessity of saving blobs for your device, which will allow you to upgrade, downgrade, or restore your device at a later date, without worrying about signing windows. This guide will walk you through how to save blobs for your Apple TV.
With Apple’s ever-turning iOS signing machine, many jailbreakers are forever wondering what the best strategy is for their device.
Should they stick with a jailbroken firmware or jump to iOS 10? If they’re already without a jailbreak, which iOS version do they need to be on to make sure they get one? What do they need to do to be able to upgrade from a lower jailbroken firmware?
In this article, we’ll quickly go through what we consider the smartest options for each device and iOS version, so that you can make an informed decision.
I reported a few weeks back on an interesting new bug for 32-bit devices, which allowed you to restore them to any unsigned iOS 9.x firmware, provided you had blobs for the destination firmware.
At the time, it was thought that the bug would mainly be of use for people downgrading from iOS 9.3.5 to a lower firmware, to jailbreak with Home Depot or Pangu9. However, it turns out the bug is in fact more powerful and wide-ranging than previously thought, and may have much wider utility.
