iOS 7.1.2 Jailbreakers Shouldn’t Worry About 7.1.3, But Instead Something Much Worse – Today, ensuing our exclusive coverage on the rumored 5.5-inch iPhone 6 and our leaked images related to the device, both the iPhone 6′s unveiling and the subsequent release of iOS 8 are drawing closer with each passing hour. Why does that matter, aside from the fact that both will be incredible additions to Apple’s hardware and software lineups? Previously, when discussing the possibility iOS 7.1.3, the members of Evasi0n Jailbreak noted that if released, the firmware would patch the jailbreak iOS 7.1.2 Untethered Pangu utility. Furthermore, it appeared as though the 7.1.2 jailbreak-patching 7.1.3 update was in sight, bound for the millions of iDevices currently in existence, before the window seemingly closed. Although a release of 7.1.3 could still happen, it’s highly unlikely at this point, considering we’re approximately a month away from iOS 8′s release (which will take place following the widely assumed September 9th iPhone 6 unveiling). So if iOS 7.1.3 won’t patch the jailbreak 7.1.2 Pangu tool, can jailbreakers consider themselves safe? No, not exactly, a greater threat looms on the horizon – jump past the break for details on the major 7.1.2 iOS jailbreak danger!
Jailbreak 7.1.2 Users Shouldn’t Worry About 7.1.3, But Instead Something Much Worse
In spite of all the incredible additions in iOS 8, especially Continuity to further improve the iOS to OS X cross-ecosystem, actionable notifications and the plethora of versatile and powerful developer APIs, the next major installment to iOS, which is again intended for mass release next month, is parlous to current jailbreakers.
While new iterations of iOS are certainly appealing, updating will result in the loss of your device’s jailbroken status and because downgrading isn’t an option, said device won’t be jailbreakable until the hackers on the jailbreak scene develop a new utility.
The iPhone 6 Doesn’t Help Matters - iPhone 6 Will Set Jailbreaking Back
Needless to say, if it weren’t for new iDevices, jailbreaks would be released at a much faster pace, as each new iPhone and iPad generation(s) introduce revised all-in-one chips (CPU and GPU combos) that change the game entirely.
However, while overcoming the hurdle sounds like an insurmountable task, it’s truthfully not and is accomplished by the world-renowned hackers that develop jailbreaks for every new generation.
That being said, the forthcoming iPhone 6 will still delay the jailbreak, there’s no question about that, it’s just matter of by how much.
iPad Air 2 And Retina iPad Mini 3 May Also Delay The iOS 8 Jailbreak
Like with the iPhone 6, it’s entirely possible that the next-generation iPads, being the iPad Air 2, or second-generation iPad Air, and the third-generation iPad mini, may also negatively impact the upcoming iOS 8 jailbreak’s release.
Avoiding further speculation regarding the challenges new devices will present jailbreakers with, we’ll wrap up this segment of the article by saying that we’ll know more once the aforementioned devices are released and hackers have had ample time to fully test them and their capabilities.
The Next Post 7.1.2 Jailbreak Is Already In Development
That’s right, as we detailed in a recent article concerning iOS 8 and the next major jailbreak utility, a new Untethered solution is already being developed! Furthermore, multiple teams, including the evad3rs and the new Pangu team, are racing to develop the next jailbreak – it’s said to be a “bloodbath,” for hackersthat is.
While it sounds intimidating, it’s actually a great thing for jailbreakers; as with everything in the world, more competition equals better product(s), likely delivered faster too. In light of that fact, it’s nearly impossible to decisively state whether the teams will wait for the new iPad to be released, which will likely be sometime in October.
It’s also possible that, as with evasi0n for iOS 6 and iOS 7, the iOS 8 jailbreak will be released later in the year – only time will tell. As always though, ensure that you keep your browsers locked to Evasi0n Jailbreak for complete updates along the way.
