  • Could We Be Looking At An Untethered iOS 6.1 Jailbreak By This Sunday?


    It’s big news today that Apple launched iOS 6.1 to the public after having just launched the fifth beta on Saturday evening. It’s even bigger news that iOS hackers planetbeing and MuscleNerd have been all over the update, and have deemed the update as jailbreak safe, meaning that all of the vulnerabilities found for iOS 6.1 thus far will work with the public release. (So go ahead and update via iTunes!)

    So this brings up the big question: How long until the untethered jailbreak for iOS 6.1? While we don’t know for sure just yet, MuscleNerd has teased the possibility of a Sunday release in one of his Tweets, where he asks what everyone will be doing on Sunday, the day of the Super Bowl, and CCs the evad3rs hacking team:




    Planetbeing made it clear in one of his Tweets that the jailbreak could take a little time to finish up, as it needs some polishing in terms of hammering out the bugs and creating a tool that the public can download and use to jailbreak their iOS 6.1 devices. In the past, the time it took for hackers to do this wasn’t very long, so this could be a good sign for the future jailbreak as well.

    While MuscleNerd, nor the rest of the eva3ders, have not yet clarified what has been planned for Sunday, the Tweet seems mysterious enough to take into consideration. Either way, it should be interesting to see what surprises the hackers have up their sleeves.

      API Ticket mismatch issues when updating OTA from what the gurus have been saying. I'd never heard of it either.

      I HIGHLY doubt it's coming Sunday. Since the early 4.x.x jail breaks there's never been a release within 5 days of the next x.x iOS version drop. The injector system needs to be developed. They don't have it yet, if I were a betting man. But BOY do I hope I'm wrong...

      A recent Tweet from @planetbeing suggests that might have already been accomplished:

      Got to the point where we've tested the entire JB process in a PoC command-line program end-to-end. Now to work on polishing the process.— planetbeing (@planetbeing) January 28, 2013
      Great! I follow Planetbeing's Twitter feed..

      Planetbeing's most recent Tweet!! I'm getting more hopeful the injection package is done!

      @planetbeing: In terms of release date, we're aiming for approximately a week out, but it's possible it will come sooner or later than that.”

      It would only affect a re-restore back to 6.1 if that becomes an option in the future!

      Not that it won't happen but planetbeing hasn't said that. And that's not the evad3rs real twitter account.

      Fair enough. But what I posted is from the official evad3rs twitter feed. Is that one not trustworthy?

      No, that's not the evad3rs real account. That is a fake account.
      This is the evad3rs real account: https://twitter.com/evad3rs

      The real evad3rs account has not made any tweets yet.

      Did you forget that they could have readied it during the iOS6 beta? The last beta is typically the same as the final release. Even if it weren't, often it would only need a few pointers/memory addresses tweaked as long as the same vulnerability remained.

      Yes, I understand that. I'm just a student of history - and that hasn't happened before. They had a lengthy beta time with 5.1.. But the injector system took another 6 weeks to prepare. Why? Because you can't test an injector system without the a phone with the final iOS general release on it. Even if beta 5 was the GM (as we've discovered it is for 6.1) they only got it 2 days ago.

      But it looks like, Planetbeing is telling us it'll be out inside a week or so. So they are indeed WAY further along on the injector system for 6.1 than they were at this same juncture for iOS 5.1.

      All good!!
