Talk of Apple being able to read iMessage contents is nothing that new, but it's been at the fore today after the iPhone and iPad maker was forced to reiterate that it cannot see the content of messages, even if it wanted to. That may have put people's minds at rest, and while it should be reassuring, Apple's claim has already had a bog old dollop of doubt thrown at it by jailbreak supremo Pod2g.
Is there an iOS 7 jailbreak? That’s one question we have been constantly asked here at Redmond Pie. With public release of iOS 7 set for September 18th, there is some good news on jailbreak front, as according to a tweet sent out by none other than a prominent member of team Evad3rs, things are looking good for an iOS 7 jailbreak.
Following the news that Apple had plugged the Evasi0n untethered jailbreak for A5+ powered iPhone 5, iPad and other new devices with the release of iOS 6.1.3, it was a case of being back to square one for those purchasing these new devices. Anybody running iOS 6.1.2 or earlier can jailbreak across the board, but if iOS 6.1.3 taught us anything, it's that the cat is never too far behind the mouse, and will eventually get clawed. Usually, this is a demoralizing period of time, yet although there is of course no untethered jailbreak just yet for the very latest firmware, we have already seen plenty of very encouraging signs for future firmware releases.
As if there wasn't already a million reasons why this year's JailbreakCon will be one of the most unmissable events this year, Pod2g has confirmed his attendance at HITBConfSec, and add to that the inclusion of Chronic Dev Team member Pimskeks, and you've pretty much got every member of the Chronic Dev Team on board.
I don’t know whether to call it HUGE or what, pod2g - the person who found the SHAtter exploit and helped discover 24Kpwn – has announced that he is now leaving Chronic Dev Team in order to work independently.
