iOS 7.1.1 compatible jailbreak tweaks

By Joe Rossignol on Jun 25, 2014

It has been a few days since the Chinese team Pangu surprised us with an iOS 7.1.1 untethered jailbreak, and the dust is finally starting to settle. After learning that the jailbreak is safe to use, we’ve gone ahead and shared video guides on how to jailbreak iOS 7.1.1 on Windows and how to jailbreak iOS 7.1.1 on OS X. We also answered some of the other pressing questions surrounding the jailbreak, including the two exploits used for this method.

We’ve been receiving a lot of questions on our social platforms and comments about which jailbreak tweaks are compatible with iOS 7.1.1, so we’ve gone ahead and compiled a list based off this shared document by JailbreakQA moderator iAdam1n. While our jailbreak guru Jeff Benjamin has tested some of these tweaks, we cannot guarantee that all of the packages listed will work with your specific iOS device, version or other tweaks installed…  Read More

 

iOS 7.1.1 untethered jailbreak burns two exploits

By Joe Rossignol on Jun 23, 2014

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…  Read More

 

How to jailbreak iOS 5.3 on the Apple TV 2 untethered

By Jeff Benjamin on Jan 5, 2014

Simply put, the Apple TV hardware in and of itself is good, but jailbreaking the Apple TV 2 sends its value through the roof. Yesterday, FireCore, the creators of the Seas0nPass Apple TV jailbreak tool, released an untethered jailbreak for iOS 5.3 thanks to some help from winocm and iH8sn0w.

Hacker claims to have iOS 6.1.3 untether binary

By Jeff Benjamin on Aug 30, 2013

With iOS 7 on the horizon, many rumblings have been surfacing lately about the possibility of an iOS 6.1.3 jailbreak. First there was UnthreadedJB, who after releasing an obscure iOS 5.1 jailbreak for CDMA enable iPhone 4′s, claims to have an iOS 6.1.3 jailbreak. Those claims have never been solidified by any independent sources, so the verdict is definitely still out about its legitimacy.

But there’s still hope. iOS hacker winocm, well known throughout the jailbreak community, took to twitter this morning to confirm that he has a binary for an iOS 6.1.3 untethered jailbreak. Read More

3 steps to protect your iOS 6 jailbreak

By Jeff Benjamin on Feb 12, 2013

When you consider the amount of hard work that went into providing the public with an iOS 6 jailbreak, and how long it took for that solution to come to fruition, protecting the jailbreak is of paramount concern. Recently BigBoss added a section to each page of its highly visible repo addressing the concern, that’s how important it is.

There are some basic fundamental steps that you should take for the sake of preserving your device’s iOS 6 jailbreak. That’s simply because, as you know, you never know how long it will take for the next jailbreak to come around. Once Apple inevitably addresses the exploits used in the evasi0n untethered jailbreak, chances are we’ll have to wait deep into iOS 7′s lifecycle before we get another jailbreak, if we do at all.

So again, it’s of real concern for those of you who love your jailbroken device, to read the following 3 tips and strategies, and implement them. Read More

 

How to jailbreak iOS 6.1.1 with evasi0n

By Jeff Benjamin on Feb 11, 2013

To the surprise of many of us, Apple released iOS 6.1.1 today for the iPhone 4S. Fortunately, @planetbeing has reiterated the fact that the evasi0n untethered jailbreak works with iOS 6.1.1 perfectly fine.

Living up to that promise, the evad3rs just a few moments ago, released their update to evasi0n with iOS 6.1.1 support in tow. We have tested out the jailbreak for ourselves, and can confirm that the process is exactly like the previous jailbreak process, except it now works for iOS 6.1.1.

If you feel like doing so, it is now okay to go ahead an update to iOS 6.1.1, and re-jailbreak your iPhone 4S with the latest version of evasi0n. One thing that must be kept in mind, however, is that the iOS 6.1.1 update will most likely update your iPhone 4S’ baseband. So, if you’re relying on some sort of unlock like UltraSn0w, it’s advisable that you hold off for the time being. Those of you who are factory unlocked won’t have a problem.

How to convert a tethered iOS 6.1 jailbreak into an untethered jailbreak

By Jeff Benjamin on Feb 4, 2013

As we told you a bit earlier in the day, if you’re using a tethered jailbreak for iOS 6.1 via the RedSn0w method, then you can easily convert that tethered jailbreak into an untethered jailbreak by means of a Cydia package.

Indeed, by downloading the evasi0n package from Cydia, you can transition over to an untethered jailbreak in just a few steps. While this isn’t perhaps the most ideal way to achieve an untethered jailbreak, it is nice to have the option. This is especially useful for users who already have a ton of Cydia packages downloaded. By using this method, you don’t have to reinstall all of your Cydia apps and tweaks. Given the state of Cydia right now, that’s a very desirable proposition.

Take a look inside, as we show you how easy it is to convert your tethered jailbreak into an untethered jailbreak. Read More

 

You will be able to convert an iOS 6.1 tethered jailbreak into an untethered jailbreak

By Jeff Benjamin on Feb 4, 2013

If you’re currently rocking an iOS 6.1 tethered jailbreak on the iPhone 4 or the iPod touch 4th generation, then you have a decision to make. It’s being recommended that you go ahead and reinstall stock iOS 6.1 back on to your device, but you can, however, opt to remain as you are, and instead install a debian package that will provide the iOS 6 untethered jailbreak.

Just as with the previous Rocky Racoon jailbreak for iOS 5.1.1, users who already have access to Cydia by means of a tethered jailbreak can “convert” their tethered jailbreak into an untethered just by installing the debian package via Cydia once released. Read More
