  • Evad3rs Achieve Unsigned Userland Code Execution in iOS 7


    On Tuesday, iOS hacker planetbeing made the announcement that the evad3rs were attempting to use a number of exploits that the team had in storage on the newly released iOS 7 Golden Master to see what exploits were closed and what exploits were still useful.

    In what looks like a stroke of luck, planetbeing followed up on Wednesday morning with additional news. The evad3rs have successfully managed to accomplish unsigned userland code execution on iOS 7. The hacker notes that this gives the evad3rs a chance to start “poking the kernel.”

    While this is great news, we still cannot draw any conclusions about the ETA for an iOS 7 jailbreak. The hackers still have a lot of work to do if they wish to accomplish this task, but nonetheless, progress is progress.

    iOS 7 still isn't even available to the public, but will be on September 18th. Apple could make any changes that they want to iOS 7 between the Golden Master and the final build, so no one should be getting their hopes up just yet. If you value your current jailbreak, we would suggest holding off on the iOS 7 update when it is released to the public, as with Apple's newer devices, downgrading software isn't much of an option.

    Additional good news is that the evad3rs still appear to have more stuff "in reserve," meaning that they didn't need to use all of their known exploits to accomplish where they have gotten so far. This leaves a little bit of wiggle room if Apple tries to be sneaky.

    We will keep you updated as more news surfaces.

      If a bunch of new iPhones were already made & packaged, by the date the iOS 7 GM was released to devs, then what is installed on those phones already packaged?
      Probably 6.1.4 and they just update it before you pay for it at the store when transferring all you current data to it.

HOWEVER, they won't be able to test their program WITH 64BIT architecture, unless one of the evad3rs has the new iphone 5s.
      Well they will officially start working on it I assume Friday. So that would mean probably a January/February launch if I understand. Cause I'm sure they will wait for 7.1.

      Agreed, I'd be very surprised if we saw the JB before Xmas. 7.1 sounds right with the mess 7 is at the moment.

      What I think the devs should do is use the exploits that have been patched in iOS 7 to jailbreak iOS 6.1.3/6.1.4

      I have a feeling that iOS 7 will be jail broken quicker than we are used to... I wanna say 6 weeks tops... I'm not trying to be all wishful thinking and hoping, I just feel it... Plus, I think apple has let their guard down somehow, someway... Either way, I'm down to wait patiently until January or February... Whatevahs... It's all good...

      Gotta be careful a lot of people new to jail breaking. Get taken advantage of sites that promise to jb their device for a small fee.

      Yeah, I'm with you bro! I'm thinking with all the changes to iOS, coupled with a 64 bit chip while still maintaining compatibility with existing software/hardware. Yeah, holes and lots of them.

      I didn't think about that. That might be hardware and not software. Maybe a new bootrom will see the light of day? Only time will tell. But I'm upgrading ASAP so it doesn't bother me too much. I don't really need a jailbreak fast anymore with iOS 7 as of the GM.
