  • P0sixninja May Have Something "Bigger Than a Jailbreak" Coming in the Future


    iOS hacker p0sixninja, also known as Joshua Hill, has Tweeted saying that he has been working on something that he thinks will be "bigger than a jailbreak." According to the hacker, there are many great things about to come, and they’re all coming soon.

    A few months back, the hacker noted that the next jailbreak, possibly for iOS 7, may be completed by Hill himself, but since Hill believes what he is working on will be bigger than a jailbreak release, we already know a jailbreak isn't what Hill is hinting about on Twitter.

    After a follower of Hill had asked the hacker for a hint about what he was working on, Hill said “I can get a copy of any Apple internal firmware, also known as signed version of ssh of telnet.”

    Hill also responded to a Tweet that said, “embedded software development tools!” by saying, “that's only part of it. Although I could use more developers. 3 isn't enough.”

    Obviously the details are very interesting, but also vague. We expect to see that Hill will have lots of support from the jailbreak community as he works on his projects and we are excited to see what he may release in the future. We will keep you updated on any details as they arise.

This is a bold claim, I've been doing this since the command prompt days and I'll be damned if i ever heard the day something would top this, alas I shall sit back and wait to have my mind blown. or be instilled with disappointment. (remember the biggest thing to happen with Apple, the Beatles?!?! )
      What do u mean a bootrom exploit is patchable?!?! It's an exploit in the hardware; It can't be fixed w/ a patch...only new hardware.

      What? 'Jailbreaks increase sales but people won't buy phones that aren't jailbreakable'. So jailbreaks increase sales of used iPhones. Why would this matter to anyone not selling used iPhones?

      Gotta give the guy props for all that he has done for us that love our jail breaks. Whatever it is he has going on I'm sure it will be worth the wait!

      I'm wondering if he's discovered an unpatchable exploit that's found in all firmwares and is required by Apple when they create their ipsw file. Apple would have to completely rewrite how they create firmwares which would be counterproductive considering all the iDevices already sold. Lastly, Apple might not even be able to locate the exploit!
      I really, really hope you are right...

      How awesome would that be?

      What I think he might be got the stuff to develop own ipsw, which could be to the well known iOS as a closed source OS, will be open source OS like android.
      Will see what the Josh is cooking..

      All i can say is encore encore..well done! Can't wait to see the fruits of his labor. Apple takes from the JB community all the time. Umm..just look at iOS 7 haha! Apple needs the JB community to stay relevant. Many above have stated they would go Android if not for the JB. I must admit I would be one of them :]

      That would awesome if we could do that! Update the iOS without losing the 'jailbreak' would be very cool..
