A group of Chinese hackers calling themselves “Pangu” have just released what they’re claiming is an iOS 7.1.1 jailbreak, and this time it looks like we might have a bit of evidence that it could be legitimate. (Update: reports are streaming in that the jailbreak does indeed successfully install Cydia on iOS 7.1.X devices.)
Last week, iH8sn0w had released a new version of p0sixspwn, which makes it a lot easier to perform an untethered jailbreak on iOS 6.1.6. Prior to that,Â users had to use Redsn0w to perform a tethered jailbreak, and then install the p0sixspwn package to convert the tethered jailbreak into an untethered jailbreak.
Few days back, security researcher Stefan Esser aka i0n1c, notorious for trolling the jailbreak community, revealed he had successfully jailbroken iOS 7.1.1.
He followed it up with a post to explain how his iOS 7.1.1 jailbreak works.Â He has just publishedÂ a video to show his untethered jailbreak for iOS 7.1.1 calledÂ Cyberelevat0r.Â
Yesterday,Â winocm andÂ i0n1c revealed that they had successfully jailbroken iOS 7.1.1.
There was some good news on the jailbreaking front earlier this month when pod2g said thatÂ heâ€™s working on iOS 7.1/7.1.1 jailbreak. We have some more good news for all of you â€” iOS 7.1.1 has been jailbroken by winocm andÂ i0n1c.
Apex–a tweak from renowned Auxo-maker and jailbreak developer Sentry–was a smash hit when originally released for iOS 6 last year. Today, Sentry posted a Vine teasing an upcoming update to the tweak dubbed Apex 2, bringing Apex to fit in with iOS 7 aesthetic and updated to be technically compatible with the latest version of Apple’s mobile operating system.
Unlike, many of the Cydia offerings we cover here at iPhoneHacks, a new tweak by the name of AudioExplorer+ is actually its own standalone app. It can’t be offered on the App Store because it needs to search the filesystem of your device, so the developer launched the app on the Cydia store to bring it to jailbroken iOS users. AudioExplorer+ has been around for along time, but a recent update to the powerful audio file-findingÂ appÂ recently landed adding a wide variety of new features.
Security researcher Stefan Esser a.k.a i0n1c has reportedÂ a serious security issue for jailbreakers. AÂ malware called “Unflod Baby Panda” has beenÂ discovered on jaibroken iOS devices that isÂ sending Apple ID and password to servers based in China.
