Pre iOS 8.1 Jailbreak 8.0.2 Utility: How To Maintain Your Jailbreak On 7.1.2

Pre iOS 8.1 Jailbreak 8.0.2 Pangu or Evasi0n Utility: How To Maintain Your Jailbreak on 7.1.2 – Today, like with each day following iOS 8’s initial release, we find ourselves closer to the mobile liberation that will inevitably come in the form of an iOS 8.0.2 UnTethered jailbreak. As detailed in preceding articles, not only are the evad3rs (the ingenious team of hackers behind the creation of the first iOS 6 and iOS 8 UnTethered jailbreak utilities, evasi0n and evasi0n7 respectively) working diligently to discover new vulnerabilities, but the newest jailbreakers on the scene are also racing for a release: Pangu. Furthermore, with Pangu financed by a third-party Chinese company with monetary interests in jailbreaking, Pangu may very well be the first to issue an iOS 8 jailbreak for 8.0.2 and 8.1. However, that’s not exactly the focal point of today’s article – regardless of what anyone may say, the past is still very much a part of the present. Each day following Apple’s release of iOS 8, which in turn patched Pangu, we received a number of questions related to the tool’s functionality; not so much whether Pangu can jailbreak 8.0.2, but whether it still supports 7.1.2 ensuing the aforementioned patch.

Pre 8.0.2 Jailbreak 8.1 Utility – How To Maintain Your Jailbreak

In addition to recognizing the blatantly obvious future of jailbreaking that is iOS 8, it’s important to pay homage to the incredible tools that paved the way for the forthcoming iOS 8 jailbreak 8.1 and 8.0.2 utility.

That being said, we’re here today to provide an answer to the following question: “can Pangu still jailbreak 7.1.2 fully Untethered on all devices?”

iOS 8.1 And 8.0.2 Jailbreak In The Works, But What About Pangu For 7.1.2?

Thankfully, the answer to the above question is a definite ‘yes’! For those of you who are newcomers to the incredible world of jailbreaking, first of all, welcome! Secondly, it’s important to realize that when a new jailbreak-patching firmware is released, the latest jailbreak will continue to function on the supported firmware(s) for eternity, provided you avoid said jailbreak-patching firmware update.

Moreover, once an update to a firmware that isn’t supported by the latest jailbreak tool(s) is carried out, in this case iOS 8.0 through 8.0.2, once the signing window closes (it already has), it’s impossible to downgrade to the latest firmware that’s still supported by the jailbreak utility, in this case 7.1.2.

If you upgrade from iOS 7 to 8.0.2, you will effectively forfeit your ability to jailbreak using either evasi0n 7 for 7.0 through 7.0.6 or Pangu to jailbreak 7.1 through 7.1.2. Having said that, if you happen to own a device on any iOS 7 firmware, again, it’s not too late to jailbreak fully UnTethered – follow either our evasi0n 7 guide for lower 7.0.x firmwares or our Pangu tutorial to jailbreak 7.1.x.

iOS 8.1 Jailbreak Looms On The Horizon, Jailbreak 7.x Today

As for the next Untethered jailbreak for iOS 8 through 8.1, such a utility is contingent upon not only the release of the latter, but also that of the new iPad models, being the iPad Air 2 and the iPad mini 3. Thankfully, both of the new iPads are scheduled to be unveiled in just two short days during a special media event Apple has planned (additional details available on Best Tech Info).

Finally, we’ll have additional coverage on not only iOS 8.1 and the latest iPad models, but also the development of the Untethered iOS 8 jailbreak 8.1 utility in the days and weeks to come; stay tuned for more information and keep your browsers locked to Evasi0n Jailbreak.

iOS 8.1 Beta 2 Released, Evasi0n And/Or Pangu iOS 8.0.2 Jailbreak To Support 8.1

Apple Releases iOS 8.1 Beta 2, Evasi0n and/or Pangu 8.0.2 Jailbreak to Support, and Jailbreak, 8.1 – Earlier today, following Apple’s recent release of both iOS 8.1 beta 1 and iOS 8.0.2, the company has seeded the second beta iteration of 8.1 to those enrolled through Apple’s official iOS Developer program. The latest beta firmware, which is available to developers for immediate download via the company’s Developer Center, boasts a revised build number of 12B407. Interestingly, like its predecessor, 8.1 beta 2 offers less improvements over 8.0.2, further solidifying our initial analysis that there will likely be a number of subsequent beta versions prior to the final version intended for public release. In fact, 8.1 beta 2’s changelog carries little weight over that of its predecessor, suggesting the majority of said changes are likely bug fixes. Furthermore, the aforementioned point also seems to indicate that there likely aren’t any additional security fixes present in 8.1 beta 2, which in turn means that the forthcoming update likely won’t patch any of the iOS 8 vulnerabilities the evad3rs and/or Pangu have discovered thus far and plan to implement into their imminent UnTethered iOS 8 through 8.0.2 jailbreak, and likely 8.1, utilities. By way of explanation, any jailbreak tool released for iOS 8 will likely jailbreak 8.1 completely UnTethered, in addition to functioning on, supporting and jailbreaking, iOS 8.0.2. For more on the all-new 8.1 beta 2 firmware, continue reading.

Apple Releases 8.1 Beta 2: Can I Jailbreak 8.1 Or 8.0.2 UnTethered?

As confirmed by way of iOS 8.1 beta 2’s release notes, the updated beta firmware mostly rectifies bugs related to HealthKit, iCoud, iCloud backups, iCloud Drive, third-party keyboards, Notification Center, the Phone app, Photos and Provisioning Profiles and WebKit for developers.

Having said that, although the latest build is significantly more stable than 8.1 beta 1 and offers additional features (namely SMS forwarding for Continuity with OS X Yosemite), the changelog for iOS 8.1 beta 2 still makes no mention of security fixes nor that of Apple Pay integration, suggesting the latter of the two may be reserved for the firmware’s public release.

iOS 8.1 Beta 2 Available, 8.0.2 Jailbreak Development Silently Continues

While there may not be an excess of information surrounding how 8.1 will inevitably affect jailbreaking at this stage of development, given the fact that iOS 8.1 beta 2’s changelog is rather meager, it’s both likely and probable that the next Untethered jailbreak utility (from either the evad3rs or Pangu) will be entirely cable of jailbreaking 8.1, provided the teams exercise restraint and wait to release their jailbreak until the firmware is made available to the public.

As a minor side-note, it was suggested last week that in addition to iOS 8.1, both iOS 8.2 and 8.3 are in active development and testing stages at Apple.

This could pose a problem in the future once an iOS jailbreak utility is released, as we’ll receive more iterations of the latest major iOS release this year than for the past three years – neither iOS 5, 6 nor 7 received updates beyond x.2. We’ll provide additional information and updates on the topic at a later date.

iOS 8.1 Update Indicates a Fantastic Time for Jailbreakers!


Also, while it may not seem like it, given the above statement, this is actually a fantastic time for jailbreakers, seeing as both Pangu and the evad3rs are racing against one another, and it appears as though 8.1 is on schedule for a release significantly earlier than the firmware’s iOS 7 corresponding predecessor, iOS 7.1, which wasn’t officially released until March 10th. Additional information on the subject of Pangu versus evasi0n and the evad3rs can be found in our recent article.

Finally, we’ll have additional information and details pertaining to how 8.1 may, or more likely may not, influence the forthcoming jailbreak in a negative way in the days and weeks to come – stay tuned and lock your browsers to Evasi0n Jailbreak.

Jailbreak iOS 8.0.2 And iPhone 6 Plus Updating – Update For An iOS 8 Jailbreak?

iOS 8 Jailbreak 8.0.2 and iPhone 6 Plus Updating – Should I Update for an iOS 8 Jailbreak? – Recently, ensuing the release of both iOS 8.0.2 and 8.1 beta 1 (to those enrolled in Apple’s official Developer Program), we’ve received a plethora of questions pertaining to the former of the two latest releases. Interestingly though, said questions aren’t regarding whether there’s a jailbreak iOS 8.0.2 utility currently available, but instead something else related to jailbreaking. Prior to delving into the previously alluded to question, it’s important to understand the background of both the latest 8.0.2 public release and the current Untethered jailbreak utility. The latter of the two aforementioned items was regrettably patched by Apple when the company issued iOS 8 to the public, meaning the Pangu UnTethered 7.1.2 utility cannot jailbreak 8.0.2 on any device, including the new iPhone 6 Plus and iPhone 6 models – the tool will only ever function on 7.1 through 7.1.2, until the Pangu Team releases an updated iteration of Pangu. As for iOS 8.0.2, continue reading past the break for more on the firmware and the mostly commonly asked question we’ve received as of late pertaining to both 8.0.2 and the next jailbreak!

iOS 8 Jailbreak 8.0.2 And iPhone 6 Plus Can I Update To Jailbreak UnTethered?

First and foremost, it’s crucial to understand that the second update to Apple’s latest major iOS 8 update, being 8.0.2, was released one day after itspredecessor, 8.0.1.

Interestingly, the changelogs for the two iOS 8 updates are nearly identical, save the fact that 8.0.2 rectifies the cellular connectivity and Touch ID complications that 8.0.1 itself introduced. Immediately following its release, 8.0.1 was effectively recalled – Apple stopped seeding the firmware and recommend that users restore back to 8.0, until 8.0.2’s release: the first true iOS 8 revision.

With the background knowledge provided, we can finally provide an adequate answer to the question that spurred this article – “should I update to 8.0.2 if I want to jailbreak?”

Updating To iOS 8.0.2 Depends On Your Current Jailbreak Situation

While the above question is definitely multifaceted in its answer (the answer is dynamic based on an individual’s current situation) we’ll attempt to tackle it and provide a simple question of our own to determine the ultimate answer and outcome.

Are you currently on jailbroken on 7.0 through 7.1.2 or do you have the ability to jailbreak by being on any iteration of iOS 7?

If the answer to the above question is ‘yes,’ you should definitely avoid updating to iOS 8.0.2, provided you’re interested in jailbreaking – if you aren’t, by all means, feel free to update.

For those of you who answered ‘no,’ and you’re interested in jailbreaking, updating to 8.0.2 now won’t affect your future ability to jailbreak once a utility is released, as it will function on, and fully jailbreak, iOS 8.0.2.

iOS 8.0.2 And 8.1 Updates May Be Jailbroken Sooner Rather Than Later!

As for 8.1, which is currently in its first beta stage, that’s still to be determined and while we currently have an answer for the same question applied to 8.1 as well, it could very well change pending the outcome of the next few weeks.

Remember, both the evad3rs and Pangu are currently racing against time itself to be the first to jailbreak iOS 8, whether they wait for the next iPad models, and iOS 8.1, to be released however is still unclear (additional information on the topic can be found here).

For everything on jailbreaking, including 8.0.2, 8.1 and future iOS 8 updates, keep your browsers locked to Evasi0n Jailbreak.

Apple Releases iOS 8.1 Beta 1, Upcoming iOS 8.0.2 Jailbreak To Likely Support 8.1

Apple Releases 8.1 Beta 1, Upcoming iOS 8.0.2 Jailbreak to likely Support and Jailbreak 8.1 – Today, ensuing Apple’s recent release of iOS 8.0.2 on Thursday, the company has seeded the first beta iteration of iOS 8.1 to those enrolled in the official iOS Developer program. The update, which is available for immediate download via the Apple’s Developer Center, features a revised build number of 12B401. Surprisingly, the 8.1 beta 1 update doesn’t introduce many improvements and offers virtually no additional features over 8.0.2, suggesting that there will likely be numerous betas prior to the firmware’s inevitable release. Furthermore, the aforementioned fact also indicates that there are likely no real security fixes, which in turn means that iOS 8.1 doesn’t patch any of the vulnerabilities the evad3rs and/or Pangu have discovered and are planning on implementing into their forthcoming UnTethered iOS 8 through 8.0.2 jailbreak utility. In other words, the to0l will likely jailbreak 8.1 fully Untethered, in addition to functioning on, and supporting, iOS 8.0, the short-lived 8.0.1 update and 8.0.2. For more on the latest 8.1 beta 1 firmware, continue reading past the break!

iOS 8.1 Beta 1 Released – Can I Jailbreak 8.1 And 8.0.2 UnTethered?

As confirmed in iOS 8.1’s release notes, the firmware mostly corrects a bug that prevented third-party HealthKit from making subsequent quarries for health-related data and those affecting, Notes, iCloud backups, iCloud Drive, third-party keyboards, Mail, the new iOS 8 Metal API, Photos and other, minor bugs.

That being said, while being significantly more stable than 8.0, or even 8.0.2, the changelog for iOS 8.1 beta 1 makes no mention of Apple Pay implementation, suggesting that said feature will be added in a subsequent beta release.

iOS 8.1 Enters Beta As 8.0.2 Jailbreak Development Continues

While there isn’t a plethora of information surrounding how 8.1 will affect jailbreaking at this specific juncture of development, given iOS 8.1’s rather sparse changelog, it’s likely that the next Untethered utility will be fully capable of jailbreaking 8.1, provided the teams wait until the firmware is made available before releasing their jailbreak.

As a quick sidebar, it was confirmed earlier today that iOS 8.1, 8.2 and 8.3 are all in developmental and testing phases at Apple, indicating that we’ll see more iterations of the latest major iOS version this year than for iOS 5, 6 or 7, seeing as none of said firmwares were escalated beyond x.2.

Apple’s 8.1 Update Proves Great For Jailbreakers!

Furthermore, this is actually a great time for jailbreaking, seeing as 8.1 appears to be on schedule for release earlier than the firmware’s corresponding predecessor, 7.1, which wasn’t released until March 10th, 2013, and the fact that both the evad3rs and Pangu are racing against each other to be the first to release a new iOS 8 jailbreak (additional information on the topic is available here).

Of course, we’ll have additional details on how 8.1 may, or more than likely may not, influence the forthcoming jailbreaking in the days and weeks to come; stay tuned and keep your browsers locked to Evasi0n Jailbreak.

Apple Releases 8.0.1, Is It Possible To Jailbreak 8.0.1 Untethered? Update Breaks Touch ID And Cell Service!

Apple Releases 8.0.1, Is it Possible to Jailbreak 8.0.1 Untethered? Update Breaks Touch ID And Cell Service – Today, exactly one week after releasing iOS 8 to the general public and, in turn, effectively patching the Pangu UnTethered jailbreak, Apple issued the company’s first iOS 8 update in the form of 8.0.1. In addition to being available for immediate download via iOS’ built-in over-the-air (commonly referred to as OTA) update ability, 8.0.1 can be downloaded via iTunes – however, whether your jailbroken or not, all users should avoid 8.0.1 for the time being. Interestingly enough, it appears as though the firmware not only breaks cellular connectivity for a number of iPhone owners, but also causes significant issues with Touch ID. Beyond the rather glaring usability issues though, 8.0.1’s predecessor, 8.0, patches the vulnerabilities exploited by Pangu, rendering the the UnTethered utility useless on the latest firmwares and making it impossible for the public to jailbreak 8.0.1 UnTethered on any device! For more on 8.0.1, as well as jailbreaking, continue reading past the break.

iOS 8.0.1 Released – Is It Possible To Jailbreak 8.0.1 UnTethered?

As far as iOS 8.0.1 is concerned, the update comes bearing a revised build number of 12A402 and was intended to improve a number of complicates that afflicted 8.0.

Among the number of bug corrections, 8.0.1 addresses an issue that causes apps to not interface with HealthKit and others that complicate third-party keyboards, the Photo Library, Reachability, videos playing via Safari and more.

All Users Should Avoid 8.0.1, Not Just Jailbreakers!

With that being said, in light of the aforementioned problems with 8.0.1, being the fact that it breaks cellular connectivity and Touch ID, all iDevice owners should steer clear of updating to 8.0.1 until Apple corrects said problems.

Also, for those of you who wish to maintain your devices’ jailbroken state(s), avoid updating to iOS 8 (including 8.0.1 and subsequent updates) at all costs, as Pangu and the evad3rs are still working diligently on the next UnTethered jailbreak.

In summary, it won’t be possible to jailbreak 8.0.1 Untethered for any device until a new tool is made available and all users should stay on 8.0 (provided the update to iOS 8 was made in the first place) – hopefully Apple will release 8.0.2 or correct another iteration of 8.0.1 in the hours or days to come.
