Jailbreak iOS 8.1.1 Update: Untethered Jailbreak Achieved, Potential 8.2 Release!

New Jailbreak iOS 8.1.1 Update: Untethered Achieved, Potential 8.2 Release – Today in a rather interesting, and certainly unexpected, update, famed hacker iH8sn0w officially announced that he’s dabbling in the creation of a new jailbreak 8.1.1 utility. As the majority of you are likely aware at this point, earlier this week, on Monday, Apple released iOS 8.1.1 to the masses and, in turn, effectively delivered their Pangu jailbreak patch to millions of iPhone, iPad and iPod touch owners. Unfortunately, the firmware itself is a relatively minor update, addressing only oddities and improving performance on older devices, being the iPad 2 and iPhone 4s, both of which will actually be the centerpieces of today’s jailbreak update. To make matters more interesting, Apple also seeded iOS 8.2 beta 1 to registered iOS developers yesterday, which merely includes integration for the far-off Apple Watch, at least for now. Like iOS 8.1.1, the new 8.2 beta also includes Apple’s “remedy,” for lack of a better term, for the vulnerabilities Pangu exploited to achieve an UnTethered jailbreak in their latest iOS 8 through 8.1 utility. While iOS 8.1.1 is too minor a firmware to warrant the use of additional exploits, which would essentially burn through valuable vulnerabilities that could otherwise be significantly more effective on a major release, like the forthcoming 8.2 update (once additional features are rolled in and it’s released to the public), that doesn’t mean it’s not worth testing from a developer standpoint!

New Jailbreak 8.1.1 Solution? iH8sn0w Dabbles In Developing A New Jailbreak!

As previously stated, iOS 8.1.1’s main intention, aside from its covert goal of knocking Pangu out of commission on the latest public firmware, is to improve the speed and overall performance of the two oldest devices still supported by iOS 8, being the iPhone 4S and the iPad 2.

Interestingly, the two aforementioned devices, in addition to the iPad 3 (or third-generartion iPad) have been successfully jailbroken Untethered by iH8sn0w, the creator of the previously popular Sn0wbreeze jailbreak utility that allowed for the creation of custom IPSWs.

iOS 8.1.1 Jailbroken, But All Users Should Avoid The Latest Firmware!

Releasing a simple video demonstrating his work, iH8sn0w has apparently “been working on this since last Friday with XanderKitteh (really awesome dude)”. Furthermore, iH8sn0w detailed that their latest tool employs the use of “new research” performed by both hackers, which isn’t bootrom related, unfortunately.

For those of you wondering why the aforementioned fact is unfortunate, to give the simplest explanation possible, a bootrom exploit would essentially allow for the creation of new (tethered) jailbreak utilities regardless of the firmware, as said exploits are impossible to patch by Apple without releasing entirely new hardware.

iH8sn0w’s Partial iOS 8.1.1 Jailbreak, An Interesting Twist

Also, here comes another disappointing part: at the moment, the hacker’s latest rudimentary jailbreak is limited to 30-pin devices (those without support for Apple’s lightning cable, being the iPhone 4s, iPad 2 and iPad 3, as alluded to previously) “due to no serial over lightning :(“.

Finally, iH8sn0w explicitly states that he doesn’t have plans to release a utility to jailbreak 8.1.1 on any device. However, in light of iOS 8.2 beta 1’s release, the hacker mentioned that he’ll “look into it” after he catches up on school-related tasks.

For those of you questioning whether you should update to the latest public firmware (8.1.1), definitely don’t! Neither Pangu nor iH8sn0w will come to the rescue of those who are stuck on the relatively minor firmware until a more substantial update is released by Apple, again possible 8.2 or even 8.3.

The Future Of Jailbreaking Post 8.1.1 Is Incredibly Bright!

At this point, it’s also possible that the evad3rs may make their grand reentrance into the jailbreak scene in the foreseeable future, but we’ll save that topic for a subsequent article in the days to come.

If you have yet to jailbreak your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch and your device is currently running iOS 8.0 through 8.1, remember, it’s not too late to jailbreak utilizing Pangu for iOS 8 – simply follow our thorough jailbreak 8.1 guide to do so in a timely manner.

Overall, this is incredibly exciting news, as it indicates that there’s still hope for a jailbreak life post 8.1.1! Of course, as the situation develops in the days and weeks to come, we’ll have complete updates along the way – stay tuned and keep your browsers locked to Evasi0n Jailbreak.

iOS 8.2 Beta 1 Released, Pangu To Jailbreak 8.2 Following 8.1.1 Jailbreak Patch?

Apple Releases 8.2 Beta, Pangu to Jailbreak 8.2 Following 8.1.1 Jailbreak Patch? – Today, ensuing yesterday’s public release of iOS 8.1.1, Apple seeded the first beta iteration of iOS 8.2 to those officially enrolled in the company’s iOS Developer program. The update, which is available for immediate download via Apple’s Developer Center, features a revised build number of 12D436, a rather significant jump from iOS 8.1’s 12B411 build number. However, it’s interesting that iOS 8.2 doesn’t introduce many improvements over 8.1.1 and seemingly lacks any significant features. However, there is one substantial, rather massive, reason the latest beta firmware was issued: Apple Watch integration. Today’s iOS 8.2 beta release was accompanied by Xcode 6.2 beta with WatchKit (Apple’s SDK, or software development kit, for the Apple watch). In a move to prepare for the forthcoming era of post-PC Apple wearables, the company has essentially readied their developer tools to enable third-party (registered) iOS Developers to get a head-start on the creation of an all new type of app – Apple Watch apps. Unfortunately, like with yesterday’s 8.1.1 release, the vulnerabilities exploited by the Pangu Team in their iOS 8 through 8.1 jailbreak remain patched in 8.2, making it impossible for any device to jailbreak 8.2 beta 1 UnTethered using the current Pangu8 utility. For more on iOS 8.2, as well as the forthcoming firmware’s jailbreak status, continue reading past the break!

Apple Releases iOS 8.2 Beta – Will Pangu Or The Evad3rs Jailbreak 8.2 UnTethered?

As stated above, iOS 8.2’s main focus is undoubtedly Apple Watch support and integration. However, in spite of the aforementioned fact, a number of 8.2’s factors and features may change prior to the firmware’s eventual release.

Considering the Apple Watch is scheduled for release at some unspecified point in “early 2015,” it’s certainly likely that iOS 8.2’s (the corresponding firmware to add support for the device) release will be slated just as far out into the unknown and mysterious future.

Current iOS 8 Jailbreakers Should Avoid 8.1.1 And 8.2, A Jailbreak Isn’t Available!

While 8.2 certainly appears unappealing at the moment, at least to the average user, developers looking to enter the new Apple Watch app niche may find today’s release substantially more useful. However, it’s recommended that all who are currently jailbroken on iOS 8 through 8.1 avoid the latest update. Additionally, information surrounding iOS 8.2 and 8.1.1 (the firmware that effectively patched the Pangu iOS 8.1 jailbreak), as well as the future of jailbreaking, can be found in the video from iCrackUriDevice, which is embedded above.

Again, to reiterate, it’s paramount for those of you currently jailbroken to avoid not only iOS 8.1.1, which was the first firmware to contain Apple’s Pangu 8 jailbreak patch, but also iOS 8.2 beta and any subsequent releases.

The Future Of Jailbreaking Post iOS 8.2 – The Future Is Bright!

As far as the future of jailbreaking is concerned, it’s looking rather bright! It’s certainly possible that the Pangu Team may once again save the day in the not-so-distant “unknown and mysterious future” and release a utility capable of delivering an iOS 8.2 jailbreak. Looking back, Pangu has been on it, seriously! In addition to releasing Pangu for iOS 7.1, which still functions on the latest public iteration of iOS 7 (being 7.1.2), the group also released the first, and only, iOS 8 jailbreak utility once the aforementioned iOS 7.1.x tool had been patched by 8.0, leaving approximately one month of time between the iOS 8.x patch and a new 8.1 jailbreak.

That being said, it may take a bit longer this time around, as not only is 8.1.1 a relatively minor release, but also because 8.2 likely won’t arrive until the Apple Watch does in “early 2015″.

Having said that, for those of you who now have an iPhone, iPod touch or iPad that’s currently running iOS 8.0 through 8.1, it’s still possible to take advantage of the latest bug-free, one-click Pangu utility to jailbreak said devices, provided you avoid updating to both 8.1.1 and iOS 8.2 beta 1. To jailbreak 8.1, we strongly advise following our in-depth Pangu Untethered jailbreak tutorial.

Apple Releases 8.1.1, Is It Possible To Jailbreak 8.1.1 Pangu, Should I Update?

Apple Releases 8.1.1, Is it Possible to Jailbreak 8.1.1 and Should I Update? – Today, after only one developer beta release, Apple issued iOS 8.1.1 (the first incremental 8.1.x update) to the general public. In what’s undeniably a harsh and rather unfortunate blow to the jailbreak community, Apple has released the company’s latest jailbreak-patching firmware – we’ll elaborate on that shortly. In addition to being available via Apple’s iOS over-the-air (commonly referred to as OTA) update ability, 8.1.1 can be downloaded, and installed, directly through iTunes. However, this is absolutely crucial: current iOS 8 through 8.1 jailbreak users should avoid the latest firmware at all costs! Being the first minor release since the company issued 8.1, it was originally thought that Apple may leave the jailbreak unpatched until a more substantial update was released, possibly 8.2. Unfortunately though, unlike the corresponding iOS 7.1.x original Pangu jailbreak utility, which went unpatched from 7.1.1 until iOS 8’s release months later, iOS 8.1.1 patches the Pangu jailbreak for iOS 8. Now, with iOS 8.1.1 being the latest public firmware, at least one of the major vulnerabilities Pangu utilized, and exploited (namely the iAdm1n exploit), is now officially closed by Apple, making it impossible for any device to jailbreak 8.1.1 when utilizing the latest Pangu jailbreak utility. Continue reading past the break for more information concerning Pangu and how 8.1.1 affects the jailbreak.

iOS 8.1.1 Released – Is it Possible To, And Can I, Jailbreak 8.1.1 Untethered With Pangu?

As confirmed by iOS 8.1.1’s release notes, the firmware mostly addresses minor bugs and improves performance on older devices, being the iPad 2 and iPhone 4s – it’s important to realize that any other iDevice remains, for the most part, unaffected by 8.1.1’s revisions.

While iOS 8.1.1 is slightly more stable than 8.1, or 8.0.2 for that matter, the changes are trivial and certainly don’t justify the loss of one’s jailbreak.

iOS 8 Jailbreakers Should Avoid 8.1.1, As A Jailbreak Isn’t Available!

Although 8.1 added a number of features to iOS 8, including Apple Pay support for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, SMS forwarding that allowed Macs with OS X Yosemite, and iPads, to send and receive SMS and MMS text messages, iCloud Photo Library support and added Instant Hotspot access to the Cellular portion of the Settings app for iPhone owners, 8.1.1 is nothing like its predecessor in the way of features, as it’s merely a minor update.

Hypothetically speaking, if an update were performed via iTunes on a jailbroken device, it would result in the instant loss of said device’s jailbreak, making it virtually impossible to jailbreak beyond 8.1 until a new utility is released. Moreover, it would also be impossible to downgrade from 8.1.1 to 8.1 (the latest firmware that’s supported by the Pangu iOS 8 jailbreak), as Apple will stop signing 8.1 shortly.

As stated above, if your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch is currently jailbroken on 8.0.x or 8.1, avoid updating to iOS 8.1.1 like the plague until another jailbreak utility is released, which will undoubtedly be some time.

What’s Next For iOS 8 Jailbreaking Post 8.1.1?

Now, let’s address what’s next for jailbreaking and whether another utility will be released to jailbreak iOS 8.1.1. Essentially, while we know that one member of the evad3rs (pod2g) no longer sees jailbreaking as a challenge, that doesn’t mean that the evad3rs won’t swoop in to save the day this year. In the past, the evad3rs were first to jailbreak two significant iOS releases, both iOS 6 and iOS 7, this year the team was seemingly pushed aside by the newcomers to the jailbreak scene: the Pangu Team.

There’s no questioning that Pangu (a Chinese-based group that’s funded by a company with other monetary interests in jailbreaking) has additional motives over the evad3rs to release jailbreak utilities. With that in mind, while it’s more likely that Pangu will release an updated iteration of their Pangu jailbreak following another substantial 8.x update (like the team waited for 8.1 to drop before releasing Pangu8) than the evad3rs, the quondam kings of the jailbreak scene may make their grand re-entrance in the months to come.

iOS 8.1.1 And Jailbreak Update Summary

To summarize, iOS 8.1.1 is a horrendous update as far as jailbreakers are concerned, all of whom should avoid updating, as it will lock any individual who does so out of jailbreaking for what will unquestionably be a long and painful wait.

We’ll have complete details and updates pertaining to how today’s minor 8.1.1 release, and future updates, will play into the next jailbreak in the days, weeks and months to come – stay tuned and lock your browsers to Evasi0n Jailbreak.

iOS 8.1.1 Threatens Everything – Jailbreak 8.1 Now, Read This Before It’s Too Late

iOS 8.1.1 Threatens Everything, Jailbreak 8.1 Now and Read This Before it’s Too Late – An interesting time is upon us: the calm before the storm. In what will likely be a matter of hours, possibly days depending on the ultimate sequence of events, Apple will forever alter the course of the Pangu jailbreak for iOS 8’s history. With the company’s inevitable release of iOS 8.1.1, Apple will effectively patch the latest UnTethered jailbreak for all iPhone, iPad and iPod touch models, including the newer iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPad mini 3 and the A8X-equipped iPad Air 2. Prior to delving into the inner workings of the latest jailbreak situation, it’s important to realize what goes into the creation of a jailbreak utility, at least at rudimentary level. Essentially, jailbreaks must deliver unsigned code to an iDevice to accomplish the end goal of enabling root access, which allows boundless and limitless potential from a software standpoint, as root access is required to continually run code that isn’t signed, and approved, by Apple – i.e. iOS 8.1 jailbreak tweaks, packages and modifications. We’ve only just scratched the surface though – for more on what it means to develop a jailbreak, Pangu’s all-new jailbreak iOS 8.1 utility and Apple’s forthcoming iOS 8.1.1 jailbreak-patching update, continue reading past the break!

Jailbreak 8.1 Now, But What About An iOS 8.1.1 Jailbreak? Everything Will Change!

Now, with the desired outcome understood, you may be asking how one would achieve such a feat; for all intense and purposes, the answer is significantly easier said than done: exploits.

In terms of iOS jailbreaking, the discovery of iOS vulnerabilities can lead to the potential exploitation of said vulnerabilities and, when the required exploits are applied properly and bundled into a utility with the intent of enabling root access, with no shortage of additional coding-related goodies baked into the mix, a jailbreak is born.

Pangu iOS 8.1 Jailbreak – Will The Evad3rs Step Up With Evasi0n To Jailbreak 8.1?

Pangu for iOS 8 requires a number of different exploits to successfully jailbreak 8.1 completely Untethered. With Apple’s latest beta release of iOS 8.1.1 beta 1, the community gained a glimpse at what Apple has planned for their upcoming release and it doesn’t bode well for jailbreakers. Essentially, at least one of the exploits employed by Pangu has been patched (closed) by Apple in 8.1.1. beta 1, the iAdm1n exploit, which is paramount to the jailbreak utility, as it’s required to successfully inject the required jailbreak data.

While it will always be possible to jailbreak 8.1 using Pangu (via either of our one-click guides: 8.1 for Windows or Pangu for OS X), once iOS 8.1.1 is released, those keen on jailbreaking iOS 8 will no longer be able to do so if they upgrade to the latest firmware.

With the jailbreak-patching firmware in sight, we’ve received reports from Apple employees that the company plans to issue the iOS 8.1.1 firmware to the masses sometime this week. As we move into Thursday, it’s becoming more likely that Apple will opt to either release iOS 8.1.1 at the end of this working week or at the beginning of next week.

iOS 8.1.1 Beta 1 Spells Trouble For Jailbreakers, Urgent Notice To Avoid 8.1.1!

Interestingly, yesterday Apple stopped signing 8.1.1 beta 1 to registered developers – without releasing beta 2 of the firmware, it was all but clear that the final iteration would precede the single beta release. However, earlier today Apple began re-signing iOS 8.1.1 beta 1, indicating that there may be additional portions of the firmware that require more thorough testing.

Use this rather odd lapse in signing to your advantage: jailbreak iOS 8.1 now before it’s too late! If you’ve been waiting to jailbreak until either the evad3rs release a utility or things become more stable, don’t; for more on the former, watch the above video, as for the latter, the jailbreak is perfectly stable thanks to a number of recent Cydia updates on Saurik’s part.

Apple’s Updated iOS 8.1.1 Firmware: Recap

Once iOS 8.1.1 is released, Apple will close 8.1’s signing window and, in turn, effectively patch the Untethered iOS 8 jailbreak, making it impossible to jailbreak 8.1.1 on a freshly restored iPhone, iPad or iPod touch.

For more on iOS 8.1.1 and all-things-jailbreak, keep your browsers locked to Evasi0n Jailbreak – the jailbreak developers have some exciting things in store post 8.1.1.
