How To Install iOS 8 Beta 4 Free Without UDID, Downgrade To 7.1.2 And Jailbreak

How To Install iOS 8 Beta 4 Free Without A Registered UDID, Download, Downgrade To, And Jailbreak 7.1.2 – This morning, a mere two weeks after releasing the third beta iteration of iOS 8 to registered iOS developers, Apple seeded iOS 8 beta 4 to those enrolled in the company’s official iOS developer program. For those of you who are unfamiliar with the impending major iOS installment, which is slated to be released during the fall, the update features a plethora of welcomed improvements to the movie operating systems, including Continuity for a seamless integration of iOS and OS X, actionable Notification, a countless number of new developer APIs and more. Also, in light of the Pangu UnTethered jailbreak 7.1.2 utility, those who opt to update to iOS 8 beta 4 (as of writing this article) will be able to downgrade to iOS 7.1.2 and fully retain their ability to jailbreak iOS 7.1.2 Untethered – our thorough Pangu 7.1.x jailbreak tutorial is available here. With that said, in this primarily educational tutorial, we’ll highlight a flaw in iTunes’ beta IPSW registration and update system that allows all iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch models running iOS 7.1.2 to upgrade to iOS 8 beta 4 without having their UDID(s) officially registered through an iOS Developer account, while simultaneously managing to avoid activation errors.

Install iOS 8 Beta 4 Without UDID And Fix Activation Errors On 8.0 Beta 4

Before proceeding, it’s crucial to understand that the process highlighted in today’s article is strictly reserved for educational purposes to highlight a security flaw in iTunes. Moreover, due to Apple’s copyright of iOS 8, we will not, and cannot, provide direct iOS 8 beta 4 download links – you must download iOS 8.0 beta 4 through another channel to personally test this security flaw. Also, when performing a feat such as updating to iOS 8 beta 4 for 7.1.2, you agree and completey understand that you assume total legal responsibility if the UDID of the device that updates to 8.0 beta isn’t registered through Apple.

How To Install iOS 8 Beta 4 for Free Without UDID – Educational Purposes

Finally, due to the fact that the iOS 8 beta 4 install process is virtually identical to that of beta 3, 2 and 1′s, we’re merely going to link readers to our comprehensive beta 1 tutorial and highlight the work required prior to updating, as well as the steps necessary to revert back to and jailbreak 7.1.2, in today’s article.

  1. Backup your iPad, iPhone or iPod touch inside iTunes, this includes the iPhone 5S, iPhone 5C, 5, 4S, 4, the 5th generation iPod Touch and the iPad Air, iPad Mini 2, 3, 4.
  2. Perform a full restore to the latest public firmware, which is currently iOS 7.1.2 at the time of this article (this is a necessity).
  3. Commence a restore from the backup that was created when following the first step of this educational guide.
  4. Navigate to our recommended beta 1 guide, follow the iOS 8 update procedure highlighted in said tutorial and then return to this article for important post-update steps.
  5. Following the completion of the update, immediately disconnect your iPhone, iPod or iPad from your computer and avoid connecting to iTunes in the future to fully circumvent and avoid obnoxious activation errors.
  6. Reboot your iDevice to ensure that it doesn’t experience any of the aforementioned Activation Errors.

Hypothetically speaking, the completion of the above steps will officially install iOS 8 beta 4 on any iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch model that was previously running iOS 7.1.2.

Downgrade To And Jailbreak 7.1.2 UnTethered Using Pangu
  • Once on iOS 8, it’s possible to downgrade by entering Recovery mode – to do so, connect to iTunes and simply hold down the home and power buttons together until iTunes detects that your device has entered recovery mode. Also, if you happened to enable iCloud’s ‘Find my iPhone’ feature, you’ll need to disable that prior to entering Recovery mode in the Settings app before downgrading.
  • iTunes will automatically switch to a device overview screen, at which point, simply click the Restore button.
  • After the iPhone, iPad or iPod touch is on iOS 7.1.2, you can re-jailbreak following our in-depth Pangu jailbreak tutorial, which is available here.

If, for whatever reason, you’re confused by any of the information conveyed in this strictly educational iOS 8 beta 4 article, we recommend watching iCrackUriDevice’s video, which is embedded above.

Apple’s Latest Weapon To Combat Jailbreak 7.1.2 Utility: Self-Sabotage?

Apple to Combat Jailbreakers and Pangu Jailbreak 7.1.2 Utility with iOS 7.1.3 and Self-Sabatoge? – Prior to Apple’s release of iOS 7.1.2, a group based out China with no established past on the jailbreak scene took the world by storm with their release of the Pangu jailbreak utility, which functioned on 7.1 and 7.1.1 at the time. Following Pangu’s grand introduction into the world of jailbreaking, Apple issued iOS 7.1.2 to the general public and seemingly neglected to patch the vulnerabilities exploited by Pangu, allowing the utility to fully jailbreak 7.1.2 UnTethered. With Apple’s upcoming release of 7.1.3, as detailed previously, the company will certainly patch the Untethered Pangu utility, preventing it from functioning on, and jailbreaking, 7.1.3. However, Apple could easily have patched Pangu in iOS 7.1.2, as they’ve been quick to patch previous jailbreak utilities in years past, so why didn’t they? It seems as though it wasn’t neglect at all and may actually prove to be a tactic in Apple’s new arsenal of jailbreak mitigation procedures.


Apple’s Latest Weapon To Combat Jailbreak 7.1.2 Pangu Tool Goes Beyond iOS 7.1.3

Similar to the original 7.0 through 7.0.4 evasi0n7 jailbreak, Apple released both 7.0.5 (for iPhones outside the US) and 7.0.6, both of which easily could have patched the jailbreak but failed to. As alluded to above, it may have been by design that Apple prolonged the patching of evasi0n.

In the case of 7.0.x, numerous crashes and random resprings plagued devices and that’s not counting the frequent app crashes that nearly every iOS 7 device owner has experienced. After leaving the jailbreak unpatched for some time, Apple issued iOS 7.1 to the public, which not only closed the vulnerabilities used by evasion, but also conveniently correctednearly all of the aforementioned issues.

Why Doesn’t Apple Immediately Patch iOS 7.1.2 Jailbreak With 7.1.3?

So why didn’t Apple patched the jailbreak sooner if they were aware not only of the evasi0n jailbreak itself, but also the vast number of issues users were experiencing? Simply put, Apple has a love/hate relationship with jailbreaking– they like that users love to jailbreak and a number of said users only purchase iDevices knowing they can (eventually) be jailbroken. However, they simultaneously hate the process not only because it opens their “walled garden” ecosystem, but also because it has the potential to leave their system vulnerable, which is something they’re obviously against.

Furthermore, the same 7.0.x scenario that’s detailed above is recurring with 7.1.x. The only difference is that now instead of frequent crashes, users are experiencing significant battery drain problems, random spinning wheels near the carrier name in the status bar for no apparent reason and a countless number of other oddities on Apple’s latest public firmware, iOS 7.1.2 – all of which haven’t been much of an issue until 7.1.2 was released – users on iOS 7.1 have reported significantly less problems.

That being said, Apple is using jailbreakers’ own weapon against them: bugs. It seems as though they’re purposefully leaving bugs that are annoying, but not quite bad enough to warrant switching to another operating system. These intentional bugs are just downright obnoxious and could easily be squashed by Apple if they didn’t want to leave incentive for jailbroken users to update to a firmware that corrects the issues and simultaneously patches the jailbreak.

Apple’s Plan Of Action Is Bigger Than The Upcoming 7.1.3 Jailbreak Patch

As with iOS 7.1 and the 7.0.x jailbreak, this will undoubtedly be the case for iOS 7.1.3, it will fix the bothersome issues that exist in 7.1.2, but will also make it impossible for users to jailbreak 7.1.3, as Pangu will be patched. Moreover, when Apple thought the jailbreak community wouldn’t release another utility until iOS 8,both 7.1 and 7.1.1 remained seemingly bug-free, until Pangu and iOS 7.1.2 were released.

Seeing as Apple has a ‘love/hate’ relationship with jailbreaking, as mentioned above, they’re giving jailbreakers exactly what they want: room to jailbreak, but only on Apple’s terms. Now, unlike years past, users will have to pick between a jailbreak on a firmware riddled with off-putting bugs or an apparently stable firmware without a jailbreak.

Given Apple’s latest maneuvers, for those of you who have yet to jailbreak 7.1.x, it’s recommended that you do so now prior to the forthcoming iOS 7.1.3 jailbreak patching update; our comprehensive jailbreak iOS 7.1.2 tutorial is available here.

Again, to summarize, while the issues Apple may intentionally leave in jailbreakable iterations of iOS are certainly annoying (if noticed by the end-user), they make updating more of an incentive than a necessity, likely to appeal to jailbreakers who encounter said issues.

Best iOS 7.1.x Cydia Tweaks: Top 10 List For Pangu 7.1.2 Jailbreak – All iDevices

Best iOS 7.1.2 Cydia Tweaks: Top 10 Tweaks for Pangu Jailbreak 7.1.2 – With Apple on the verge of issuing iOS 7.1.3 to the public (a firmware which will almost certainly patch the UnTethered jailbreak) and with the unexpected and undeniably welcomed Pangu jailbreak 7.1.2 release from the previously unheard of Pangu Team, the staff of Evasi0n Jailbreak felt it was a perfect time to share with our readers some of the best tweaks currently available in Cydia. Moreover, what would jailbreaking 7.1 through 7.1.2 be without the extraordinary Cydia developers on the jailbreak scene who create amazingly useful and unique tweaks? While that was mostly meant as a rhetorical question, we’ll answer anyway: bland and dull, it would be as if jailbreaking offered nothing other than a shiny new ‘Cydia’ icon. With that being said, if you feel lost and you’re not quite sure which tweaks and packages to download from Cydia after jailbreaking your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch, you’re on the right post – our detailed list can be found after the break!

Top Cydia Tweaks For Pangu Jailbreak 7.1.2

To preface, before rushing head first into the list of outstanding tweaks highlighted in this article, your iDevice must already be jailbroken on iOS 7, whether it’s 7.0 through 7.0.6 (the evasi0n utility) or iOS 7.1 through 7.1.2 (thePangu utility). If your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch has yet to be jailbroken, we recommend following either our comprehensive Pangu jailbreak tutorial for 7.1 and 7.1.2 or our older, yet equally as detailed, guide for jailbreaking 7.0.x.

Top 10 Best Cydia Tweaks For iOS 7.1.2 Pangu Jailbreak

In addition to the list of tweaks found below, we recommend watching the above video from popular iOS jailbreak YouTuberiCrackUriDevice for a visual representation and demonstration of said list.

  1. Activator: the tried and true tweak that’s a dependency for a vast majority of tweaks also allows users to set various trigger actions for completing specified tasks – e.g. pinching with three fingers inside of an app to return to the home screen or pinching icons to lock a device. It’s safe to say that while Activator is most definitely a popular jailbreak tweak and is likely already installed on your device, its features and functionality are often overlooked.
  2. Disable Parallax Effect is a tweak that may seem useless to some because it disables the home screen effect that slightly shifts and skews a device’s wallpaper and icons based on the physical orientation of the device, which can essentially be done without the tweak inside the Settings app. However, when disabling parallax without the aforementioned 7.1.2 compatible tweak, it also changes the opening and closing animations of apps. To fully disable parallax and save battery, without compromise, install Disable Parallax Effectfrom Cydia.
  3. BiteSMS is a premium tweak that’s available for free for the first seven days – after the initial testing period, biteSMS simply displays a discreet ad until a license is purchased. As for features, biteSMS is a messaging app that allows for Quick Reply on iOS 7.1.2, scheduled messaging, auto-forwarding, passcode lock and so much more.
  4. CCToggeles is, simply put, a free tweak that allows iDevice owners to easily customize the toggles available inside of Control Center. Furthermore, pages are added to the toggles section that can be quickly scrolled between for access to toggles that aren’t accessible without the installation of CCToggles.
  5. F.lux allows iPhone, iPod touch and iPad users who are jailbroken on up to iOS 7.1.2 to enable an automatic screen filter of sorts that modifies the warmth of the display to hues that are easier and more forgiving on the eyes at night. Due to its incredible functionality, f.lux allows users to interact with their devices at night for longer periods of time while causing minimal eye fatigue.
  6. TinyBar, as the name implies, shrinks the size of notifications on jailbroken devices to prevent any interruption when receiving notifications while simultaneously interacting with other apps. It’s the perfect jailbreak tweak for those who, like the writers at Eavsi0n Jailbreak, disdain the gaudy size of default notifications.
  7. VideoPane is a premium tweak available in Cydia that provides the absolute best method for watching videos on a device that we’ve ever seen. VideoPane’s unparalleled functionality allows users to detach videos and have them hover over the display while concurrently using other apps – video panes can be manipulated in their size, position and even opacity!
  8. Springtomize 3 – iOS 7 has a long-standing history and predecessor lineage of allowing for previously unthought of customization of a device’s springboard and its overall functions in general. For example, when installed on a device running 7.1 or higher, Springtomize 3 allows users to customize all aspects of folders, the dock, icons and the status bar, as well as the speed of default opening and closing animations and much more.
  9. Virtual Home, the final free tweak in today’s list is exclusive to the iPhone 5s and the device’s Touch ID sensor. On an iPhone 5s with Virtual Home installed, users are able to simply rest their fingers on the home button instead of physically pressing it to return to the home screen. Furthermore, the tweak also allows for faster unlocking and custom multitasking and Siri activation.
  10. MyWi is the last tweak in our list and is best suited for jailbroken iPhones and cellular-capable iPads, as it allows for the tethering of a seta connection over Wi-Fi or bluetooth. MyWi is often regarded as the best solution for concealing unauthorized tethering usage from carriers and as a tweak that simply does what it should.
Best Essential Cydia Tweaks For The Jailbreak 7.1.2 Pangu Utility

Also, it’s important to mention that the above list of tweaks are intended for users who want powerful functionality with minimal flash, battery drain and loss of performance.

As detailed in the video embedded above, all of the tweaks highlighted in this list can be used without compromise and have virtually no noticeable adverse affect on devices that are jailbroken by way of the Pangu jailbreak 7.1.2 UnTetheredutility.

While iOS 7.1.3 Will Patch The Jailbreak, Those On 7.1.2 May Require The Update

While iOS 7.1.3 Will Patch the Jailbreak, Those on 7.1.2 May Require the Update – Today, prior to Apple’s forthcoming release of iOS 7.1.3, the staff at Evasi0n Jailbreak have collectively opted to write this article to provide valuable information for those who have their iDevices jailbroken on 7.1.x, especially those running iOS 7.1.2. While 7.1.3 isn’t currently available, and details surrounding its inevitable release are non-existent, the firmware is indeed coming and it’s almost guaranteed to patch the Pangu jailbreak 7.1.2 and iOS 7.1 utility. As of now, those who restore to the latest public firmware (being iOS 7.1.2) are still able tofully jailbreak any iDevice model, including the iPhone 5S, iPhone 5C, 5, 4S, 4, iPad Air, iPad Mini 2, 3, 4 and the 5th generation iPod touch. Although the imminent iOS 7.1.3 release is all but confirmed to prevent jailbreakers from utilizing Pangu to jailbreak 7.1.3, the firmware itself may actually prove important for those jailbroken on 7.1.2 – in an interesting twist, iOS 7.1.3 may correct an issue that’s only seemingly present in 7.1.2!

As The Opportunity To Jailbreak 7.1.2 Closes, Apple Prepares iOS 7.1.3

While the Pangu jailbreakwas a surprise in and of itself, seeing as the primary developers on the jailbreak scene (the evad3rs) were planning on waiting for iOS 8 to preserve valuable exploits, the utility has proved successful in undoubtedly jailbreaking millions of iOS-based devices.

Furthermore, in addition to the surprise that was Pangu, iOS 7.1.2 also came as somewhat of a welcomed shock when it was discovered that Apple had neglected to patch the vulnerabilities exploited by Pangu to jailbreak 7.1.x UnTethered.

iOS 7.1.2 Jailbreak Window And The Firmware’s Greatest Flaw

However, the streak of jailbreaking Apple’s latest public firmware may soon be coming to an end with the ineludible release of iOS 7.1.3. Moreover, a majority of those who updated to iOS 7.1.2, jailbreakers and regular iOS users alike, noticed that the firmware causes a peculiar and unnecessary battery drain for most devices.

That being said, when iOS 7.1.3 is eventually released, it will be a tricky situation. On one side, some may immediately update if the firmware corrects the aforementioned battery issue, while on the other, iOS 7.1.3 is almost guaranteed to patch Pangu.

Apple’s Forthcoming iOS 7.1.3 Battery And Jailbreak Patching Update

While the staff of Evasi0n Jailbreak strongly advises against updating to the pending firmware release, there may be a third alternative, if we’re lucky. During the days of evasi0n7, Apple released iOS 7.0.6 to correct a major SSL security vulnerability in iOS. Following the release of said security update, an iOS hacker created a package for those already jailbroken on an earlier version of 7.0.x that essentially applied a the fix on any of the older iterations of iOS 7. Although it’s impossible to tell at this point, it would certainly be great if the same principal applied to the rather annoying iOS 7.1.2 battery drain complication.

Of course while we’ll know more in the days to come, avoid iOS 7.1.3 to maintain your device’s jailbroken state and stay tuned for complete coverage on the upcoming firmware.

Evasi0n Jailbreak For iOS 7.1.2, Will Evasion Be Updated To Jailbreak 7.1.x?

Evasi0n Jailbreak iOS 7.1.2, Will Evasion be Updated to Jailbreak 7.1.x? – With the latest Pangu iOS 7.1 through 7.1.2 jailbreak available for all iDevices, including newer ones such as the iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c, 5, 4S, iPad Air and the Retina iPad Mini 2, jailbreakers the world over got their wish. However, as surprising as it may be, there are still those who refuse to jailbreak 7.1.2 due to Pangu’s origin and are insisting on waiting for an UnTethered solution from the evad3rs. While we’ve covered the legitimacy of the new 7.1 jailbreak, and previously dispelled any claims of Pangu being fake, in light of our recent switch back to our original domain (Evasi0n Jailbreak), we felt as though it was an excellent time to further discuss the iOS 7.1.x jailbreak and whether the evad3rs will release evasion for 7.1.2!

Can I Jailbreak 7.1.2 With Evasi0n?

Although it would certainly be amazing if the evad3rs released evasi0n for iOS 7.1.2, it simply won’t happen.

We’ve briefly touched on this topic before in various articles regarding the 7.1 Pangu utility, essentially, it’s a matter of legality. Now before you say, “wait a second, I thought jail breaking was legal,” it is – jailbreaking has remained legal under the DMCA, the act of executing a 7.1.2 jailbreak itself isn’t the issue.

Can the Evad3rs Update Evasi0n for iOS 7.1.2?

The problem, and primary complication that’s preventing the evad3rs from simply reverse engineering Pangu and developing an updated evasi0n 7.1 tool, is the method Pangu employes to deliver (and execute) the initial unsigned code.

To simplify this explanation as much as possible it’s paramount to understand what and how a jailbreak is and functions, or at least have a rudimentary grasp of the concept.

The end goal of any jailbreak is to allow for root access, which enables all of the tweaks and packages that propagate Cydia to function. First however, code that isn’t signed by a developer, approved by Apple’s strict review team and distributed through the App Store must be executed, typically via exploits.

Pangu is Fundamentally Different than the Evasi0n Jailbreak

In the case of the Pangu jailbreak, the Pangu Team (the group of developers behind the creation of the 7.1.x jailbreak) used an Apple Developer Enterprise account to allow for the unsigned code to execute properly without burning through the incredibly valuable initial exploits that are typically required.

While other vulnerabilities are indeed used and exploited following the opening of the Pangu app, which functions thanks to the use of expired Developer Enterprise certificates (that function thanks to a loophole in Apple’s Developer program,which is explained in more depth here), Pangu relies heavily on the aforementioned certificates – without them, there wouldn’t be a jailbreak.

Although the evad3rs could have easily used either a Developer Enterprise account of their own or burn through new exploits, neither avenue is appealing and both have their obvious drawbacks.

The Untethered Jailbreak 7.1.2 Utility

That being said, Pangu will remain the only jailbreak for iOS 7.1 through 7.1.2. What’s more, Apple will almost certainly patch the jailbreak with the release of their forthcoming iOS 7.1.3 update.

Needless to say, if you have yet to jailbreak 7.1.2, the time to do so would be now – don’t miss your opportunity, as another jailbreak won’t be released until the days of iOS 8. To jailbreak 7.1, 7.1.1 or 7.1.2 fully Untethered on any iPhone,iPad or iPod touch model, we strongly advise following our detailed 7.1.x Pangu guide.
