iOS 7 Untethered Jailbreak to Be Released by P0sixninja?
As for today iPhone and iPad users are able to jailbreak all firmwares prior but not new iOS 6.1.3 update which is non-jailbroken yet, as even the Evasi0n tool developed by the team of hackers known as Evad3rs doesn’t work for this firmware version. Since Apple has no plans for creating an open iOS that supports third-party applications and programs, people wonder if they get a chance to perform iOS 7 jailbreak and other versions of this operating system.
iOS 7 Jailbreak Release by Joshua Hill?
There is no jailbreak for 6.1.3 operating system yet, since P0sixninja assures that the next jailbreak “might be created entirely by him” we start thinking of a tool for iOS 6.1.3 jailbreak possibly coming out before the version 7 is presented to public.
While I can’t say what is the exact iOS 7 untethered jailbreak release date is we have some news to share with you. This firmware might be presented in summer, according to experts, and while the Evad3rs are most likely waiting till this launch to find a new exploit there is one more person who is not sitting on the sidelines.
I am talking about P0sixninja [he used to be a member of the Chronic Dev Team] who is well-known for such popular programs as Absinthe and GreenPois0n jailbreak utilities for iPhone and other iDevices. It seems that Joshua Hill [this is the hacker’s real name] is also searching for vulnerabilities in Apple’s OS to develop and present the untethered jailbreak for iOS 7 this year.
Fans of iGadgets who follow all the news on jailbreaking remember how P0sixninja disappeared from the news feeds after trying to dump the BootROM of the Cupertino-based giant products. It will be great if he really creates the next exploit since his Twitter posts sound pretty exciting.
Right now the hacker says he has discovered exploits for iOS 6.1.3 and this means that the production of the next jailbreak might be real.
Meanwhile the Evad3rs say they are not working on untethered jailbreak right now. We will see these folks next week when they speak at the HITB security conference. Hopefully they will tell us something about the future of iPad / iPhone jailbreaking.
What do you think about this? Do you believe that iOS 7 jailbreak will be created entirely by one person? Has Hill really found all the exploits required for the new tool? I guess we’ll know the truth only after Apple presents this new firmware to public.
