While Apple Allows Pangu Jailbreak 7.1.2 Utility to Exist, The 7.1.3 Jailbreak Patch is Imminent – Today, the staff of Evasi0n Jailbreak opted to address a topic related to not only the UnTethered Pangu jailbreak 7.1.2 utility for all iPhone, iPad and iPod touch devices, but also to Apple’s forthcoming iOS 7.1.3 jailbreak patching firmware. Although it’s certainly an ideal time to enter the world of jailbreaking, as Pangu remains capable of fully jailbreaking Apple’s latest public firmware, (iOS 7.1.2) that doesn’t mean this ideal situation will last; 7.1.3 will indubitably patch the jailbreak 7.1.2 utility, it’s merely a matter of time. With that being said, why is it that Apple seemingly gives jailbreakers ample opportunity to jailbreak certain firmwares, as was the case with iOS 6 through 6.1.2 (the original evasi0n utility) and iOS 7 through 7.0.6 (the evasi0n7 tool, prior to Pangu’s release for 7.1.x), but not others like the now-ancient JailbreakMe web-based solutions, which were patched in a matter of days? Essentially, as we alluded to in a recent article that briefly overlapped with today’s topic, Apple values jailbreakers as a vital part of the iOS ecosystem, most of the time.
Pangu Jailbreak iOS 7.1.2 Utility Sanctioned To Exist By Apple – 7.1.3 Jailbreak Patch Imminent
Now before instantly jumping to conclusions regarding jailbreaking and Apple’s outlook on the process, there are several important points that must be understood.
First and foremost, Apple is a multi-billion dollar company that could easily thwart the efforts of hackers and squash the bugs that certain utilities, such as Pangu, utilize with new jailbreak-patching firmwares in days, not weeks or month.
It’s by choice that Apple hasn’t patched the Pangu jailbreak and took their time with multiple iterations of iOS 6 and iOS 7 before patching evasi0n and evasi0n7, respectively. If threatened, which has been the case with the browser-based JailbreakMe solutions, Apple has proven themselves by taking action immediately – it merely took periods of a few short days for the JailbreakMe tools to be patched.
Why Allow Pangu To Jailbreak The Latest Public Firmware, Being iOS 7.1.2?
So why was Apple so adamant about patching JailbreakMe when they’re more lenient when it comes to other utilities? To answer that question as simply as possible: JailbreakMe was a tool that functions on a device inside of Safari itself that delivered an incredibly powerful userland exploit by way of a PDF vulnerability, which left iOS extremely vulnerable – therefore, the patch was deemed urgent.
Moreover, looking back to the days before evasi0n, an amazing jailbreak utility by the name of Absinthe 2 from the quondam Chronic Dev Team was issued for iOS 5.1.1, which remained unpatched for months until Apple released 6.0 to the public.
This favoritism towards certain jailbreak solutions all but confirms that Apple recognizes jailbreakers as valued Apple customers and likely realizes that said jailbreakers’ purchase of new devices is contingent upon jailbreaking and allows certain utilities to exist long beyond the time it would actually take the company to patch them, so long as it’s on their terms.
