iOS 7 Jailbreak Progress Update: Unsigned Userland Code Execution achieved

ios-7-cydia

As we reported yesterday, planetbeing had revealed that the evad3rs dev team had started working on a jailbreak for iOS 7, since Apple had released the golden master (GM) version of iOS 7.

We’ve have another update from him today. He says he has already “achieved unsigned userland code execution with some of our stuff in reserve. Now we have a good platform for poking the kernel.”

Despite popular demand, evad3rs dev team had resisted using some of the vulnerabilities they had discovered to develop a jailbreak iOS 6.1.3/iOS 6.1.4. They were holding off until a major update like iOS 7 was released. So it looks like it was the right call as the vulnerabilities they had discovered earlier is already helping them make progress in jailbreaking iOS 7.

While it’s premature to comment on when or even if an iOS 7 jailbreak will be released by the evad3rs team, planetbeing has noted that once/if iOS 7 gets jailbroken, the same exploit can be used to jailbreak iOS 6.1.x releases as well.
