  • Hacker Teases Jailbreak on iPhone 5 Running iOS 6.1.4


    At the end of August, we shared how iOS hacker winocm had managed to create a binary that could untether a jailbreak for iOS 6.1.3 on an iPhone 4. The same hacker has been hard at work on other projects as well.

    One such project appears to be a jailbreak for the iPhone 5 running iOS 6.1.4. The hacker on Saturday shared screenshots on Twitter of an iPhone 5 running Cydia version 1.1.8 on iOS 6.1.4. The screenshots show an AT&T version, as well as a Verizon version (shown above).

    Currently there is no public untethered jailbreak for the latest version of Apple’s iOS operating system, so folks have only been able to jailbreak an iPhone 5 running firmware as late iOS version 6.1.2. That said, this discovery is pretty huge and we look forward to learning more.

    The hacker has not announced any plans to release this jailbreak, so we are unsure of what is to become of it. Apple is expected to launch iOS 7 to the public shortly as the September 10th media event edges closer. Other hackers are waiting to work on a jailbreak until iOS 7 is available to the public as not to burn exploits too early.

      This isn't a jailbreak as a kernel exploit still needs to be provided. Winocm released the code part so this is a DIY jailbreak that most can't use.

      However...

      There is an exploit that Apple has known about for 4 months called posix_spawn(0) which is a full sandbox escaping kernel vulnerability that is still alive & kicking.

      Perhaps a team could take this part (which winocm only released because it doesn't work in iOS 7) & use the, already reported to Apple, kernel exploit to create a jailbreak for the masses. Whether Musclenerd throws it in to redsn0w or evasion puts something together, it would be a fantastic thing for a LOT of people.

      Now we just have to wait & see if that happens.

      ...So he can use a phone app maybe? A friend of mine keeps a hotspot in his pocket for wifi connection in tandem with one of those apps that give you a real working phone over wifi. I had heard of others doing this with an iPod as well.

      I agree with you, Americans take cell service for granted. See my previous post for a possible solution. With a hotspot and "talkatext" it's practically free phone service.

      Just wanted to say that some commas and periods would be nice... Also what the heck does "you're not on you're on there pal" mean? Run on sentence with little sense... Sorry for being so critical but that was ridiculously bad...

      Get a google voice number and you can make it work with some apps... I used my first iPhone for months without a plan from anyone... I just had to have wifi to make and receive calls and texts... I was waiting for a jailbreak for 3.1.3 so I could unlock my phone and go to Tmobile... I made the mistake of updating the firmware on that 3G before I ever even used it...

      I didn't realise I was at school and was going to be marked down on my written sentences. Obviously I made a mistake which I didn't notice

      I have it, I've never set up the phone, maybe I will if I lose my service. I sold my old iPhone 4 32 gig to a friend for a 2 Tb external drive and a 750 gb hybrid drive. The hybrid drive was a risk but I set it up in my media PC and now Performance Test pegs me out with an 850 score whereas all I could get from it with a SATA drive was 350.

      The guy I sold it to, didn't have an AT&T account, can't get one, but instead he bought a satellite hotspot and installed that tapatalk app and it even allowed him to use his previous phone number. I'm sure it would work just as we'll with Googol Voice.

      I was asking 500 bucks for that phone on c-list, I think I got what I needed, it was 5.1.1 jail broken which had been the most solid JB and OS combo I had until 6.1.2 came out with evasi0n 1.5 which came out the same week as iOS 6.1.2. But he kept on adding stupid repositories and he broke his Cydia. I told him to bring it to me so u can fix it, I can even do the semi tether 6.1.3 JB. But I basically used 5.1.1 and jailbreak as selling points.

      I wish the full source code for this tweak would be released. So basically this news is telling us there are guys running about with 6.1.3 JB'd but we just can't get the JB.
