First Untethered iPhone 5 Jailbreak Comes In The Form Of ‘evasi0n’

It’s been over 4 months since the release of the iPhone 5 and today marks the first day that users can jailbreak their phones via an untethered software by a group of iOS jailbreak authors who go by the name of, “Evad3rs.”

The software is available for Linux, Mac OSX, and Windows and will jailbreak any iOS 6.x device. For those unfamiliar with jailbreaking, its purpose is to allow the user to make unauthorized tweaks and changes to the phone and the ability to download apps not found on the App Store. As an untethered jailbreak, users only have to jailbreak once, while a tethered jailbreak means that the user has to do this process every time they restart their phone.

Note: Via The Verge, users and staff have confirmed that the jailbreak is force closing Apple's Weather App. 

Limera1n & GreenPois0n Jailbreaks Now Available on Mac & Linux


Alike most of you, I thought that the way that Geohot only allowed for Windows users to use his Limera1n jailbreak was a bit weird, but now you can enrage Steve on any platform you choose by using Limera1n by Geohot or Greenpois0n by the Chronic Dev Team. But remember, if you do try and break away from Apple's grasp, beware that there is always risks with Jailbreaking, so always back up.

Hackers Come Together: Cydia Merges with Rock


They have been rivals for a year and a half, but Cydia and Rock unite, as SaurikIT (the makers of Cydia) have acquired Rock and will be moving everything from Rock over to the Cydia store. And, not only will the stores combine, but all the software engineers will be combine as well. Which will make a much better Cydia as all of the knowledge and expertise come together. This is a great thing for all jailbreakers, I'm sure, but users running 4.1 will have to wait a bit longer to see the new Cydia Store as there is still no jailbreak yet.

iOS 4.1 Jailbreak Ready

It is not even out yet, but the good people over at the iPhone Dev Team have managed to Jailbreak iOS 4.1. ?Comex, the creator of the Spirit and jailbreaks is saying that he has already located 2 exploits in iOS 4.1. The first one is similar to the jailbreak as it uses a loophole in iOS itself, which makes it simple for the user to impliment, whereas the second one is in the bootrom of the iPhone at the hardware level. Which makes the second jailbreak will be much harder to impliment than the first, but as the second one is deep down within the iPhone, it will be much harder for Apple to lock it down.

Look for it to be available the same day that iOS 4.1 is, which is rumoured to be September 8th.

Apple to Fix Mobile Safari Bug


Apple has just told CNET that they have fixed the bug in mobile safari which allowed the jailbreakme.comjailbreak by the iPhone Dev Team. The bug that allowed the jailbreak was a security vulnerability in the way it loads PDF files from the Web. An Apple spokesperson said that “We’re aware of this reported issue, we have already developed a fix and it will be available to customers in an upcoming software update,” but there was no word on when it was going to be released.

Whenever this update gets pushed out to the world, the jailbreak will not work and the iPhone Dev Team will have to work out another way to make Steve Jobs very angry.
