Ever since Apple patched the vulnerabilities used by TaiG jailbreak in iOS 8.1.3, it hasn’t been possible to jailbreak iPhone, iPad or iPod touch.
We finally have some good news for jailbreakers. Security expert and hacker, Stefan Essar aka i0n1c, has just published a video, which shows that he has managed to jailbreak iOS 8.4 beta.
Apple had seeded the first iOS 8.4 beta to developers few days back. To prove that he has indeed jailbroken iOS 8.4 on his iPhone 6 Plus (iPhone7,1), i0n1c gives a brief demo of the all-new Music app, which was introduced in iOS 8.2, the Apple Watch companion app, which came pre-installed with iOS 8.2, and also the redesigned Emoji keyboard. It also means that iOS 8.3 can also be jailbroken.
However, please don’t get too excited as i0n1c is highly unlikely to release an iOS 8.4 or iOS 8.3 jailbreak. Though he has contributed to the development of public jailbreaks few years back, he is unlikely to release the jailbreak to the public this time. He has often expressed his dislike towards the jailbreaking community because of the rampant piracy.
Apple has made it difficult to jailbreak an iOS device by patching several vulnerabilities in iOS 8.1.3, a vulnerability in iOS 8.2 and another one in iOS 8.3. But this at least gives us hope that it is possible to jailbreak iOS 8.4, and most likely iOS 8.3 as well, and we can expect Taig or Pangu team to figure out how to jailbreak it sometime in the near future.
Please note that any site claiming to have a jailbreak for iOS 8.1.3 – iOS 8.4 is a scam, so stay clear from such scam sites. If there is a jailbreak for iOS 8.1.3 – iOS 8.4, it will be available for free, and we’ll be the first to report it here.
