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.

Biggest iOS 8 Jailbreak iPhone 6 Plus Update Yet, Utility In Sight?

Biggest iOS 8 Jailbreak 8.0 iPhone 6 Plus Update Yet, Utility in Sight – Last night, ensuing yesterday’s exciting iOS 8.0 jailbreak coverage, another substantial update unfolded. Previously, we mentioned that the two primary dev teams currently on the jailbreak scene, namely Pangu in the aforementioned coverage, are currently in the process of developing a new jailbreak tool for iOS 8 and the iPhone 6 Plus. Now, MuscleNerd of the evad3rs (the legendary group that brought us the first iOS 6 and iOS 7 UnTethered jailbreaks, dubbed evasi0n and evasi0n7 respectively) tweeted out a clue as to the team’s second informal iPhone 6 Plus iOS 8 jailbreak update. For more on the latest in the world of jailbreaking, continue reading past the break, as it’s a rather important and incredible jailbreak update!

Biggest iPhone 6 Plus Jailbreak iOS 8 Update Yet, Evasi0n8 In Sight?

In what’s undeniably been the most important iOS 8.0 jailbreak update yet, the famed hacker may have inferred that the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus could be riddled with new bugs for potential use in the next iOS 8 evasi0n jailbreak.

In his tweet, MuscleNerd stated that the “i6 [iPhone 6 and 6 Plus] iBoot log (n56, compared to k93) hints at lots of new, perhaps buggy, code :)”.

While it may not sound like a substantial update to those unfamiliar with the incredible, tedious and mind boggling art that is jailbreak development, it’s extraordinary news!

In short, if there’s a lot of “buggy” code in iBoot for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, that means said code has the potential to be exploited and incorporated into the iOS 8 jailbreak along with other exploits.

The Evad3rs On iOS 8 UnTethered Jailbreak For iPhone 6 And All iDevices

Also, MuscleNerd’s latest tweet of interest seems to suggest that after obtaining at least two 128GB iPhone 6 Plus models (as stated by MuscleNerd himself), the ead3rs may very well have entered the vulnerability discovering, exploitation and testing phase of creating the next jailbreak for iOS 8.

Finally, as previously discussed on evasi0n jailbreak, considering the intense competition between Pangu, the evad3rs and other Chinese-based teams, who, like Pangu, will be funded to race for a release by a third-party Chinese company or companies with monetary interests in jailbreaking. We’ll almost certainly receive an iOS 8 jailbreak sooner than in years past.

New 8.0 iPhone 6 Plus Jailbreak iOS 8 Utility Update: There’s Progress!

New iOS 8 Jailbreak iPhone 6 Plus 8.0 And All iDevices Update, There’s Progress – Recently, both the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus, the latest and biggest refresh to Apple’s hardware lineup, pun intended, created quite a frenzy in the world of iOS and Apple enthusiasts. Stores quickly sold out of both iPhones, with the iPhone 6 Plus in critically low supply, the devices are receiving rave reviews and customers couldn’t be happier, but what about an iPhone 6 Plus and iPhone 6 jailbreak for iOS 8? Thankfully, and interestingly enough, there’s been a rather substantial iOS 8 jailbreak 8.0 development since our recent coverage on the status of the next UnTethered jailbreak utility. Also, beyond the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, iOS 8’s adoption rate is purportedly up by approximately 30% of all iOS-based devices, confirming that a vast number of jailbreakers perviously jailbroken on iOS 7.1.2 are desperately seeking a new jailbreak for iOS 8.0. Additional information on the forthcoming iPhone 6 Plus jailbreak iOS 8 tool can be found after the break.

In an earlier article on the topic, we discussed how numerous jailbreak teams are racing to develop the next Untethered tool for iOS 8 and how said race will be a “blood bath,” according to famed hacker Stefan Esser. Better known throughout the jailbreak community as i0n1c, Stefan Esser was previously spot-on when suggesting that the next jailbreak (at the time evasi0n7 had been patched by 7.1 and Pangu wasn’t on anyone’s radar) would likely be born from the labor of a new Chinese-based team.

While the above information, that numerous groups are working tirelessly on the next UnTethered iOS 8 jailbreak, is undeniably exciting it’s nothing new for most who stay current on recent jailbreak developments.

iOS 8 Jailbreak iPhone 6 Plus 8.0 Status Update – It’s An Exciting Time!

Now, in a more recent, and certainly tantalizing update, ensuing iOS 8’s official public release on Wednesday, the Pangu Team confirmed that they’re currently hard at work on their version of an iOS 8 jailbreak. Again though, we’ve already confirmed that Pangu would set to work immediately following, if not prior to, iOS 8’s release.

Jailbreak iOS 8 Utility Being Developed By Multiple Teams

Furthermore, the evad3rs (the most prominent group on the jailbreak scene responsible for developing the first iOS 6 and iOS 7 UnTethered jailbreak) have also begun work on their next utility. In fact one of the more prominent members, MuscleNerd, purchased two 128GB iPhone 6 Plus models, undoubtedly for jailbreak development and testing purposes.

However, beyond the evad3rs and the substantially newer Pangu Team, other groups with Chinese origins are also in the process of creating a new tool to jailbreak iOS 8. As we’ve stated before on Evasi0n Jailbreak, it’s not a matter of whether an iOS 8 jailbreak will be released, but when such a utility will be released that will aid millions in experiencing the most iOS 8 has to offer.

iPhone 6 Plus Unboxing And Giveaway – Evasi0n Jailbreak iOS 8.0

iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus Unboxing and Giveaway video from iCrackUriDevice. From what we can tell, it’s extremely easy to enter into the popular YouTuber’s iPhone 6 giveaway!

With that being said, regardless of which team will eventually take home the glory associated with developing the first Untethered jailbreak for iOS 8, all of said teams will need an adequate testing and exploit discovery period with the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus and the phones’ new A8 processor.

While today’s information is certainly exciting, keep you’re browsers locked to Evasi0n Jailbreak for complete coverage on the status of the 8.0 jailbreak.
