Earlier today, well known iOS security researcher i0n1c posted a photo of iPhone 5c jailbroken on iOS 7.1.1 running Cydia version 1.1.9.

That iOS 7.1.1 jailbreak is not based on a long vulnerability chain. It uses a single beautiful kernel bug that goes from mobile to kernel.

Some people are serious color blind. My iPhone 5c is YELLOW not white.

Winocm followed it up with a video demoing iOS 7.1.1 untethered jailbreak on a iPhone 4. According to the video description of the video on YouTube:

Oh yeah, this is iOS 7.1.1 untethered if you didn’t notice earlier. (iPhone 4 GSM though, don’t want to mess with any other devices that I have. Would work elsewhere… if you put in the effort. ジ)

With iOS 8 unveil right around the corner, it is unlikely that any of these hackers will make their iOS 7.1.1 jailbreak exploit public. But it’s good to know that jailbreak community is well and truly alive, working on finding new exploits that can be potentially used in future jailbreaks.

Here’s the photo of i0n1c’s iPhone 5c jailbroken on iOS 7.1.1:
