Jailbreaking iOS devices is like playing a game of whack-a-mole with Apple. This is because for every exploit that jailbreakers use to jailbreak iOS devices, Apple will eventually patch it, leading to that particular jailbreak become redundant. This could also be why over the years, jailbreaking has become a lot less popular than ever due to the hassle involved.
How jailbreaking works is that it takes advantage of certain vulnerabilities found within iOS. This is made trickier on the fact that with every iOS update, Apple tends to eventually find a way to patch these vulnerabilities, making it harder for iOS users with jailbroken phones to keep their devices up to date.
For the longest time ever, jailbroken iOS devices would source their apps via Cydia which was the official app store for jailbroken iOS devices. Unfortunately it seems that in the future, users who jailbreak their devices will need to start sourcing their apps from elsewhere as Cydia’s creator, Saurik, has announced that the app store will be shutting down.
Jailbreaking your iPhone lets you utilize Cydia and do other things (Jailbreaking = unlocking Apple’s controls on user permission to install any apps and change any settings). Also, there are other benefits to it. However, at some point in time, you may want to undo what you have done i.e unjailbreak your device. For instance, taking your device to Apple’s service center would require you to unjailbreak iPhone because if they […]
It was just recently that the iOS 9.3.3 jailbreak was released, but it seems that Apple has since managed to patch it in their latest iOS update, iOS 9.3.4. The company has made the update available to iOS users and we reckon it might be worth updating to as it will address an important security flaw in iOS.
If you’re someone who loves jailbreaking their iOS device, you were probably ecstatic to learn that not too long ago, Pangu Team announced that the jailbreak for iOS 9.3.3 was available, and that a tool that was released shortly after made the jailbreak process so easy that users did not even need to connect their devices to the computer.
There isn’t much activity on the jailbreak front these days as there used to be in the past, however, there’s one team based in China that continues to create and release jailbreaks for iOS devices, and the same time has now provided the first new Apple TV jailbreak. Pangu had confirmed a couple of weeks ago that it will release a jailbreak for the new Apple TV and it has […]
If there is one gripe that government agencies like the FBI have against devices from Apple is that gaining access to the contents of a locked iPhone is almost impossible, unless you get the passcode from the device’s owner. This is something that Apple has recently reiterated in court in front of a judge.However according to recent reports, it seems that a new exploit has been discovered that could potentially […]
The jailbreak scene isn’t as vibrant as it used to be a few years back, some of the popular jailbreak developers have more or less disappeared from the scene but there’s a dedicated team of jailbreakers based in China making sure that even the latest versions of Apple’s mobile operating system are cracked. The Pangu team already has quite a few releases under its belt and now it has released the […]
Zerodium, a cybersecurity firm, has something that all of you hackers as well as security experts out there might be interested in – money. And lots of it, too. In fact, Zerodium has announced that anyone who is able to break the ‘world’s most secure mobile operating system’ will be on the receiving end of a cool $1 million, now how about that? Surely it is more satisfying than winning […]
Boy, this did not take too long at all. With Apple planning to roll out iOS 9 to the masses this coming September 16th, where this latest version of their vaunted mobile operating system is set to deliver the likes of Split Screen multi-window support for iPads, as well as Proactive suggestions, it looks like someone has already jailbroken iOS 9. All that without the help of a time machine, […]
As you might have heard, Apple has recently pushed out the iOS 8.4.1 update to its iOS users. The update will come with a host of bug fixes and improvements made to the OS in general, versus adding new features, so we guess in some way it can be avoided if you’d rather not update your device.Now you might ask who would avoid an update? If you have jailbroken your […]
The reason why iOS users choose to jailbreak their device is because they want certain features/functions that the native iOS does not allow. However sometimes when they want to go back to default iOS, it also means having to restore your device back which can take a while. Interestingly enough developer Saurik who has helped with the jailbreak community for years, has released a new tool.This tool is dubbed the […]
It was just last week that we reported that Chinese jailbreaking team TaiG released their jailbreak for iOS 8.3. However given that iOS 8.4 was just released, does this mean that we have to wait a couple of weeks or months before the updated jailbreak is released? As it turns out we won’t.The group has recently announced that their iOS 8.4 jailbreak is now available. It turns out that Apple […]
