Its not like iOS 7.1.x users haven’t waited for quite a long time for a jailbreak to be released. Even though multiple developers showed off their exploits none of them actually released it for the public. A relatively new jailbreak team from China called Pangu went ahead and released an iOS 7.1.1 untethered jailbreak a couple of weeks back. Initially the tool was only available for Windows but today it […]
Even though initially it was reported that an iOS 7.1 untethered jailbreak release might not take place it was confirmed by many well known jailbreak developers that it was indeed possible to jailbreak this firmware on iOS devices. Though none of those developers have released a jailbreak despite showing it off online. A Chinese team has stepped up and released an iOS 7.1.x untethered jailbreak, but since no one has […]
Ample evidence has surfaced over the past week to make it clear that despite popular belief an iOS 7.1.1 untethered jailbreak is certainly possible. Three different iOS hackers have posted proof of achieving jailbreak on the latest software version. @i0n1c, a popular figure in the community, today posted a video demonstration of his cyberelevat0r iOS 7.1.1 untethered jailbreak online.
The jailbreak community hasn’t had much luck ever since Apple patched the exploit evasi0n7 used with iOS 7.1. Back in the days when A4-powered iOS devices were all the rage it was pretty easy to jailbreak them since a bootrom exploit had been discovered. Since then developers have had to make do with software based exploits which Apple easily patches. Work has been going on to find a new exploit and now […]
A few weeks back Apple released iOS 7.1, the biggest update for iOS 7.0 ever since it was launched late last year. The update brought fixes for many bugs, apart from visual enhancements and new features. It seems that Apple wasn’t able to quash all bugs in this update. A new bug has been discovered in iOS 7.1 which lets anyone hide native apps on the Home screen in plain […]
Its no secret that it took a long time for iOS 7.0 to be jailbroken. The first untethered jailbreak for iOS 7.x was released by the evad3rs team, the exploit that their jailbreak used was patched by Apple in its latest firmware update, iOS 7.1. There is really no predicting when iOS 7.1 will be jailbroken, particularly for newer devices, but people still using legacy devices might be in luck. […]
iOS 7.1 is the first major update that Apple has rolled out for iOS 7 ever since the firmware was released late last year. It brought several visual enhancements, improvements and fixes.

The update brings several user interface tweaks and activates the CarPlay feature. It also brings bug fixes and performance improvements.

Its not like there already haven’t been a whole lot of rumors about iOS 7.1 release, but the latest comes from a source with a solid track record. Previously we had heard that Apple is going to release iOS 7.1 in March. Over the past few months the firmware has been going through beta stage, and it appears that all testing has finally been completed. Daring Fireball’s John Gruber suggests […]
Its not unusual to find bugs in software that can render any one of its security features useless. Find My iPhone is an iCloud based feature on Apple’s smartphone, it allows users to locate their iPhone on a map if its stolen or it simply goes missing. Even if a device is not protected by a passcode, the feature can’t be turned off without entering Apple ID credentials. However a […]

It was only a matter of time before Apple plugged the exploit used by evad3rs developers team […]
Apple has already started seeding beta versions of the next major iOS 7 firmware update, iOS 7.1, and according to a latest rumor it has already seeded iOS 7 beta 3 to various testing partners.
