iOS 14.3

CoolStar’s Taurine jailbreak for all iOS 14.0-14.3 devices officially released

Although the unc0ver jailbreak by Pwn20wnd was the first to implement support for iOS & iPadOS 14.0-14.3, those who’ve been patiently holding out for CoolStar’s iOS & iPadOS 14-based jailbreak instead are going to be in for a treat.

Steering away from the initial plan to launch an SSH-only iOS & iPadOS 14 jailbreak first before launching a full-fledged iOS & iPadOS 14 jailbreak afterward, CoolStar has instead decided to focus all efforts on the full-fledged option — the fruits of which are now available to the general public.

Updates to futurerestore allow unsigned restores to iOS and iPadOS 14 for jailbreakers

If you've been following our recent jailbreak coverage you'll know that there is now a jailbreak available for iOS and iPadOS 14, released by the unc0ver team. Another tool is also on the horizon, being worked on by CoolStar. However, the exploit which it uses will only work on iOS and iPadOS 14.0-14.3, not the current 14.4, nor Apple's upcoming firmware, 14.5.

The problem for would-be jailbreakers had been that iOS and iPadOS 14.0-14.3 are no longer signed by Apple, which means users could no longer move to those firmwares through traditional methods. It therefore looked like anyone who wasn't already on iOS or iPadOS 14.0-14.3 was going to miss out on the first semi-untethered iOS 14 jailbreak.

Hope rises for jailbreaking iOS 14 following release of new cicuta_virosa kernel exploit by ModernPwner

If you’re using iOS or iPadOS 14 right now, then your only means of jailbreaking would be with the checkra1n jailbreak on older A7-A11-equipped handsets up to and including the iPhone X.

Fortunately, the tides may change in the relatively near future as a newly released kernel level local privilege escalation (LPE) dubbed cicuta_virosa looks particularly promising for all handsets capable of running iOS or iPadOS 12.0-14.3.

Apple no longer signing iOS 14.3 following release of iOS 14.4

Apple just last week released iOS & iPadOS 14.4 to the general public with new features, bug fixes, and niche improvements, and as you might come to expect from the Cupertino-based tech company after having released a software update, the previous iOS & iPadOS 14.3 firmware is no longer being signed.

Apple closed the iOS & iPadOS 14.3 signing window just this evening, a move on the company’s behalf that prevents iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch users from being able to downgrade their handset’s firmware from the newer iOS & iPadOS 14.4 release. This should come as no surprise to anyone, as Apple generally follows this rhythm of signing and un-signing after each software update it launches, no matter how large or how small.
