  • 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.

      Since some of the older iPods and iPhones can't be upgraded to iOS 7, a jailbreak for 6.1.3/6.1.4 firmware would be awesome. But I'm sure this won't happen anytime soon, if ever.

      Nothing he has published is harmful. But I really wouldn't get your hopes up.

      With iOS 7 there is almost no need for a jailbreak. Like I have found a total of 2 stupid reasons but that's it.

      I never do like the posts that correct other people's grammar/spelling mistakes. Things happen, you do not know the writer so you don't know if they are typing on a tiny keyboard or if they are rushing or whatnot.

      That said, "Realise" is a word. It may not be the common spelling amongst Americans but it doesn't mean it's not a word.
      Open your eyes/minds, there are other country/people/culture on this earth besides Americans.

      I say no. Most features normal people jailbreak for are given to you on iOS 7 in my opinion. It's a waste to not update.

      I say YES!! I have had iOS7 on my i5 after I lost my JB. It's crap, I hate it personally! So I bought another i5 on 6.1.X firmware. The UI is totally shocking! There was not 1 reason I could find that would make me update to iOS7! I will wait till the 7X JB is released & WB is functional then get a new iDevice so the UI can be changed.
      Perhaps it's a theme creator thing but me personally & this i5 will stay on iOS6 for as long as possible.

      #GoldenAgeOfTheming

      So yes I would be downgrading to 6.1.3/6.1.4 NOW incase a working JB is released. Sure Winocm's one is out but my guess is the new JB from the usual crew may include 6.1.3 right thru to 7.X if they can do it.

      Worse case u will always be able to update if u want to as they won't close the 7X signing window as soon as the JB is out. Maybe within a few days but not immediately. I'd even download the 7X IPSW that the JB works on in advance if you are worried on missing the signing window, which is easily done when your iDevice is plugged into iTunes. Simply download ONLY.

      The more ppl on iOS6 the better IMO.

      Maybe it's best if you just stop criticizing now. I'm embarrassed for you.

      It'd be nice if it was released RIGHT MEOW cuz I just put a brand new iPhone 5 up for auction (tomorrow) on eBay! I decided to burn one of my upgrades so I could make some decent cash for the ip5S!

      Yeah. We are really in the Golden Age of themeing right now with a Jailbroken iPhone 5. What I can do - iOS7 won't be able to touch until Winterboard is made compatible with it. Saurik's already said that will be a VERY LONG time to get it running with iOS7 since so much was changed. Don't get me wrong - iOS7 is a GAME CHANGER on every level.. not like the miniscule upgrade iOS6 was from iOS5.. BUT iOS7 has changed almost every fundamental way graphics are done. And Winterboard will have to be almost completely re-written, from what I'm reading, before it will work with a JB'ed iOS7, which, itself, will likely take until February again.

      I was gonna buy a 5S immediately this time as I'd done for all iPhones prior to the 5.. but there's no WAY I'm giving up THIS v v v -- for iOS7 - no Jailbreak, no Winterboard..

      I don't think it's completely doom & gloom. I could be wrong but from the iOS7 beta IPSWs I've extracted under the hood it essentially looks the same.
      Same directory layout albeit a few new folders here & there. Icon & Apps wise there's still pngs for the iOS to build these. E.g keypad for Calculator & the font still added into the keys. I'd thought that would be code based now to pull natively from the iOS.

      The major change is .car files for the other UI elements. These were .artwork files SO Apple have changed things up here. Essentially making it harder to extract. BUT there is an iOS7 UI Extractor via the iOS7SDK & Xcode5 app that pulls all pngs from all .car files. So it's not as code based heavy as ppl have been saying.

      How WinterBoard is supposed function with the new changes i don't have a clue. Saurik knows a lot of ppl & i was asked to contribute but a few of the known Devs have stepped up.

      All of those are useless except iFile which is only good because it allows root access. I have 3 different programs on my Mac that are much cleaner and nicer than iFile (but since I'm on 7 and have no JB I don't have root editing access). But if you do have one they usually allow you to edit that portion.
