  • Pangu Might Have a Jailbreak in the Works for iOS 8.3 and/or 8.4


    It has been a long, long time since a new jailbreak has surfaced for iOS. The most current jailbreak was made by the TaiG jailbreak team and can jailbreak iOS 8.0-8.1.2 on any of the supporting devices.

    We are currently on iOS 8.3, with iOS 8.4 quickly approaching. It is expected that iOS 8.4 will launch with Apple's WWDC 2015 Keynote when Apple announces its new music service, which will be integrated in the redesigned music application that comes bundled with iOS 8.4 beta.

    Fortunately, the Pangu jailbreak team, a name we haven't heard in quite a while, appears to have demonstrated a jailbreak running on iOS 8.3 at the MOSEC security conference in Shanghai, China, as first reported by Tools4Hack (Google Translate). Pangu might be saving this jailbreak for when iOS 8.4 launches to see if it will be compatible with the new firmware launch.

    It is worth noting that well-known security researcher i0n1c proved to the world that iOS 8.4 beta 1 is jailbreakable via a YouTube video, so there is definitely a light at the end of the tunnel.

    Apple's iOS 9, which is expected to be available in beta after the WWDC 2015 Keynote, reportedly includes a feature called "rootless," which will further toughen the jailbreak job in iOS and make things harder for jailbreak hackers. It's unlikely, however, that iOS 9 will never be jailbroken, since the jailbreak community always seems to find a way.

    We will continue to keep you updated as more details surface. Stay tuned!

      Really hope they save any and all jailbreak tools for ios 8.4 so we can get as much out of it as possible.

      That would be awesome. Had to give my jailbreak up at the end of April as my upgraded phone came with iOS 8.2. I've adjusted but I miss my tweaks.

      Hope they wait for 8.4 to improve the odds of apple not patching the exploit

      Now we just need @notcom and @iH8sn0w to come out with a downgrade to 8.4 and we can all keep a JB until they sort out this 'rootless' iOS 9. [emoji106]

      In a perfect world, right. [emoji23][emoji23]

      Whatever happened to that whole ordeal with downloading and saving "shhs blobs" or whatever? Did anything ever come out of that?

      So Notcom basically hinted that he had been working with ih8sn0w to create a downgrade process. That ih8sn0w had some kind of "secret exploit" saved up that could make it possible.

      But when I contacted ih8sn0w, he wouldn't give any details about it. Notcom has remained silent too.

      I'm unsure if the whole thing crashed and burned, or if they're just being quiet about it to lead to a big surprise.

      If I can stay jail broken when my apple watch arrives in a few weeks I will be so stoked, I really don't want to lose my jailbreak to use my watch...

      I with you there buddy, I already have my Watch but don't use it as I just can't stop using my 6's. Updated my 5S to use it for a day but couldn't go back to the 5S, just too small now for me. Spoiled...

      Maybe I read wrong, but I thought I read that 8.4 won't be released next week but is being delayed until later in June. Did anyone else read that too?
