[NEWS] iOS 7 jailbrk for iPhone and iPad: When, if ever, will the jailbrk be rdy?

iOS 7 jailbrk for iPhone and iPad: When, if ever, will the jailbrk be rdy?By Sebastian Anthony on September 23, 2013 at 12:58 pm With iOS 7 being relsed last week, there is one question that everyone wants to know the answer to: When will there be an iOS 7 jailbrk for the iPhone and iPad? This is a tough question to answer with more variables than you might think. If you’re lumbered with an older phone, such as the iPhone 4, a preliminary tethered jailbrk alrdy exists (but it doesn’t allow the installation of Cydia). If you have a newer device (the iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPhone 5S, iPad, or iPad Mini), you will probably be waiting a very long time for a jailbrk. Let’s jump into some low-level details of iOS, iPhone, and iPad jailbrking, and discuss when (or if) we’ll ever see a Redsn0w or Evasi0n jailbrk for download.Updated: There are a lot of people/websites reporting to have jail iOS 7, but so far these have all been fakes or scams. When iOS 7 is jail for the iPhone and iPad, we will update this story to let you know. In the mn time, don’t follow a strange link that promises to jailbrk your device — because it won’t. There is an iOS 7 jailbrk for the iPhone 4, called OpenSn0w, but it’s tethered, and doesn’t allow for Cydia installation.Finding an Irrespective of the device or operating system — PCs, Android smart, iOS tablets — every jailbrk is predied on finding an . An is simply a bug or other unintended vulnerability that you can take advantage of. Sometimes an is small, and only allows for perhaps a tethered jailbrk or some other minor boost in functionality. If the is large enough that you can gain complete, persistent root access to the lowest levels of the device, though, it becomes possible to crte an untethered jailbrk.Finding a large enough to crte an untethered jailbrk is rlly, rlly hard. In eral, the s — such as Comex, Geohot, the iPhone Dev Tm, or Evad3rs — need to find a bug or vulnerability in the software (iOS, boot ROM), the hardware (the A4/5/6/7 SoC), or idlly both. Usually these bugs and vulnerabilities are discovered with very low-level tools, such as port debugging(pictured above). in eral, and security resrch in specific, is a painstaking and intensive task. Suffice it to say that finding s is hard, and requires a special kind of mind to even know where to start, let alone to carry it through to completion.iOS 7 jailbrkThere is a constant battle between and jailbrkers. With ch new version of iOS and the hardware inside the iDevices (primarily the SoC), improves its defenses against jailbrking. Furthermore, unless s can find a rlly low-level , can sily the hole by relsing a new version of iOS — which is exactly what happened with the Evasi0n and Redsn0w jailbrks with iOS 6.1.3. In fact, as it stands, there is no jailbrk for devices running iOS 6.1.4 (the latest version of iOS 6) or iOS 7, and no jailbrk for any device with the A5, A6, or A7 SoC and software later than iOS 6.1.2. There hasn’t been a rlly solid jailbrk since the iPhone 4′s boot ROM was properly ed. There have been some temporary jailbrks, and some tethered jailbrks, but for the most part it feels like has the upper hand.Still, groups like Evad3rs (makers of Evasi0n) have taken to Twitter and other public forums to say that an iOS 7 jailbrk is in the works — though, unlike iOS 6 which was jail on relse day, it sounds like we’ll be waiting at lst a few months for an iOS 7 jailbrk, across all iDevices.”Being more and more confident about an iOS 7 public jailbrk ;-) [ that does not mn soon ],” said Pod2g.”Jailbrk for iOS 7 5s 5c coming around 6 months,” said 4s_pois0n,another .In all likelihood, if you own an iPhone 5, iPhone 5S, or iPhone 5C, you will be waiting months for an iOS 7 jailbrk. If you have an iPhone 5, your only rl option for jailbrking is to stick with iOS 6.1.2 and the Evasi0n or Redsn0w jailbrks. If you have an iPhone 5S or 5C, I wouldn’t be surprised if there’s never a reliable untethered jailbrk for iOS 7. Even if an can be found, which is unlikely given the drth of s in iOS 6 and the brand-new A7 SoC in the iPhone 5S, will almost certainly be able to it.Sadly enough, if you rlly want to jailbrk iOS 7, getting your hands on a three-yr-old iPhone 4 with an able boot ROM is probably your best bet.Now rd: Should you upgrade to iOS 7?
