The Pangu jailbreaking tool, which covers iPhone, iPad and iPod touch users running iOS 7.1 right up to the current 7.1.2, has just been updated to version 1.2.1 for Windows. The bump fixes a minor issue that would cause crashes with some Windows users, and so if you do plan to jailbreak any of your devices on a Windows PC, then grabbing the very latest version would be very much advised.
We have tested and can confirm that Pangu jailbreak works on iOS 7.1.2 on all the devices, including the likes of iPhone 5s, iPad Air and Retina iPad mini.
Back when iOS 7.1 first released, it quickly became apparent that the Evasi0n exploit had been patched by Apple, and as such, those wishing to preserve their jailbreak should stick with a pre-iOS 7.1 firmware. Shortly after Apple dropped the first significant update to its mobile firmware, seasoned hacker Winocm revealed that he had managed to jailbreak an iPhone 4 untethered on iOS 7.1, and now, fellow iOS security expert iH8sn0w has done likewise for the iPhone 4s (A5).
Apple’s recent introduction of iOS 7.1 plugged jailbreak exploits that made the previous Evasi0n untethered jailbreak possible, and as such, jailbreakers have had to either stick with a preceding iOS 7.0.x release, or upgrade and forgo their access to Cydia. However, even though the pre-iOS 7.1 efforts by the Evad3rs team were commendable, it doesn’t mean that the hard work has ceased, and seasoned hacker Winocm has just posted a video of iOS 7.1 booting untethered.
An update has just been released to the Evasi0n7 jailbreak tool, bringing the latest version's release number up to v1.0.7. Just over one week after the Evad3rs team announced version 1.0.6 to jailbreak iOS 7.0.6, today's update offers bug fixes pertaining to bundled package lists, which, for some, weren't automatically updating via Cydia. If you haven't encountered this issue, then there's no reason for alarm, although if you're planning on jailbreaking your device in the immediate future, then Evasi0n7 version 1.0.7 is where it's at. Further info, as well as links to our jailbreaking tutorials, can be seen after the fold.
iOS developer Cjori has given a glimpse of what Cydia looks like on jailbroken iOS 7, and although we're still quite a bit of a distance away from an untethered jailbreak across the board, it's good to have a sneaky preview of the work currently in progress.
Yes you read that right. According to MuscleNerd, iOS 7.0.4 is jailbreak safe. Whenever a new version of iOS is released, it's almost as though the slate is wiped clean, and all of the hard work before it is essentially diminished.
With iOS 7 out now, attention has turned to when, and if, a iOS 7 jailbreak may be possible. Here, we'll look at the possible leads we have so far, as well as running through the tail-end of the iOS 6.1.x jailbreak situation.
