MuscleNerd says no bootrom exploit for A5+ devices

pwnage-headWith news of iPhone hacker p0sixninja working “a lot of amazing things” and jailbreak tweak developer Ryan Petrich tweeting a screenshot of a jailbroken iOS 7 device, lot of folks, including us, were hoping that a new exploit had been found for newer iOS devices with A5+ chips.

Sadly, there’s no such good news, as MuscleNerd, member of evad3rs and the iPhone dev team, has tweeted that no bootrom exploit for A5+ devices has been discovered. Bootrom exploits are really valuable, since Apple can’t fix them with software updates, effectively making a device permanently jailbreak-able.

It’s not all bad news, though. Upon being asked if Apple has defeated jailbreakers, MuscleNerd responded “not even close.”

Given the surge of activity surrounding jailbreaking, we still have our hopes up. Tell us what you think in the comments below.

    I guess I’m going to have to buy an iphone4 to jailbreak since I can’t do it on my iphone4s :-!

    I might be keeping my 4S with 6.1.1 jailbreak for a long time. Should’ve gotten a 5 and jailbroke it while I had the chance.

    When is the ATV 3 jailbreak coming???? we’ve been waiting ages and no news at all, is it uncrackable?

  • Apple Mania

    watch the Price ( value ) of the iPhone 4 go UP with the release of iOS 7 to the public and being the only device that can be jailbroken straight off with the Limera1n exploit…….. it will be the Apple TV 2nd Gen all over again

      I’m sure you are right. I effed up my jailbreak (iPhone 5 – 6.1.2) DON’T download “Utube downloader” I was having youtube issues, then bam.

      BUT, the ios 7 Beta 2 is as stable as a JB, and the new OS took most its cues from the jailbreak community anyway. I will patiently wait for iOS7 Jailbreak i guess….
