iOS 7.1 Beta 5 Jailbreak Status [Evasi0n7 Exploits Killed]

While it was possible to jailbreak iOS 7.1 beta with Evasi0n7 program, Apple still found a way to kill exploits used in this tool in the latest beta 5 release. Developers are now testing this version of “fruit” mobile system for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad. Hackers say the holes are patched.

What is the future of iOS 7.1 jailbreak? Will there be a way on how to jailbreak it or will we see the same situation as with firmware 6? We’ll remind you that the situation was sad a year ago. While iOS 6 could be jailbroken with Evasi0n, the release of iOS 6.1.3 patched exploits used by the Evad3rs team of hackers.
No one could jailbreak versions 6.1.3 and 6.1.4 till the end of 2013. It took hackers much time to find the new exploits and release jailbreaking solution for untethered result. They worked day and night but only with the presentation of iOS 7 they came up with new software.
This year the situation looks to be similar with one big exception. According to iH8sn0w, he found a new iBoot exploit that can’t be patched by Apple. This hacker doesn’t want to release this exploit for public use, but he might change this decision and introduce the exploit as the part of the next untethered jailbreak for iOS 7.1 devices.
While Evasi0n7 seems to be useless for iOS 7.1 jailbreak, hackers still have time to change it and update. The new beta is available for all devs, so hackers might be testing it as well and looking up its code to find a new hole.
What do you think about the future of iOS 7.1 jailbreaking? Do you think hackers have enough time to find new exploits? We’ll let you know about any changes and news on iOS 7 untether jailbreak solutions, so stay tuned.

iOS 7.1 Facts and Predictions Based on Betas and iOS 7.0.5

It seems that we will soon get iOS 7.1 official update. Most users and experts hoped to see it instead of iOS 7.0.5 release that was presented last week for the two smartphone models iPhone 5S and 5c for consumers from Europe, Asia Pacific and China. Still it didn’t happen as it was expected so now most people believe that Apple will roll out its 7.1 firmware next for all iPad and iPhone owners.

What will it bring and how can it change the situation with jailbreak?

iOS-7.1-release

Several iOS 7.1 betas have been tested by developers. Users from the U.S. can’t download version 7.0.5 as it doesn’t support any of the American mobile operator, including T-Mobile, AT&T, Verizon and others. If you have a U.S. handset and experience problems with version 7 you should wait a bit to have them fixed in the next big upgrade offered by Apple to millions of its customers.

Since previous launch skipped U.S. users, experts have become sure the next release would be devoted to the new firmware version which is 7.1. How will it be different from the system we got used by now?

New Features

Judging by the betas we have already heard of the next iOS 7.1 update we’ve get fixes to the bugs discovered in previous firmware. For instance, Apple should solve the problems and show design update.

We will see round buttons in iPhone app, new music control buttons, get an updated look for the Power Off display, get an ability to disable parallax effect with ease and see keyboard look upgrade.

iOS 7.1

Other changes should come as well. We might get an opportunity to easily add contacts and add the existing ones. The functionality should become better.

iOS 7.1 Release

It’s hard to say the exact launch date for this operating system. It might happen in March, according to different reports. For now this is the target presentation date. The latest beta launched is beta 4. We’ll most likely see beta 5 in the future [maybe even this week] and maybe beta 6 before the firmware becomes final and official.
Jailbreak iOS 7.1

Evasi0n7 jailbreak might not work for 7.1 firmware. Hackers have noted that the exploit used in this program has been patched in beta 4. If hackers find another exploit they might release an update to their untethered jailbreak. If not, we might get into the same situation as with iOS 6.1.4 and see the next jailbreaking solution for iOS 8.

Will iOS 7.1 Jailbreak Work for iPhone / iPad / iPod touch After iOS 7.1 Release?

Apple will soon present its next iOS 7.1 update. Right now developers are testing its third beta released recently. According to hackers, their Evasi0n7 jailbreak is capable of jailbreaking this beta as the Cupertino-based company hasn’t patched the exploits used for the tool.

Will the situation change once the official v.7.1 comes? This question surely worries a lot of iPhone, iPad and iPod touch users who are using a jailbroken iOS 7 device and want to stay jailbroken after installing version 7.1.

iOS 7.1 Jailbreak Status and Predictions for iPhone / iPad / iPod touch

Apple likes to kill the holes in its programming code. If the company finds a way to close them hackers will have to search for new workable exploits. If this happens we will all have to wait till the Evad3rs or other teams create a new tool which might not even be presented till iOS 8 presentation.
We all remember iOS 6 jailbreak situation. Hackers found exploits that worked till iOS 6.1.3 update. The jailbreak for this version was released not so long ago. It took professionals nearly a year to present the utility!
The unofficial Evasi0n7 can jailbreak 7.1 beta 3 but this procedure is not advised to users who are not developers. It is risky and might not be successful but it gives many great benefits. Thanks to Cydia developers who create unapproved applications and games millions of iDevice owners can install different tweaks / mods / useful programs to improve their experience with Apple gadgets.
There is a huge selection of applications for jailbroken devices. Cydia store and various repos [Modmyi, BigBoss etc.] are available for public. The party goes on and users with firmware versions from iOS 6 to iOS 7.0.3 can jailbreak and download tons of programs.
Let’s keep our fingers crossed and hope that iOS 7.1 launch will still make Evasi0n7 working. This will make millions of people so happy!

iOS Autocorrect Errors to Be Fixed [New Apple Patent]

Millions of users who use iOS autocorrect options feel embarrassing after sending a text message. This becomes ridiculous as we are always in a hurry and often misspell words to make them sound hurting or crazy. I am sure many of you would love their iPhone to understand each thought and make only correct autocorrects avoiding funny and hurting errors.

Of course, you can always reread what you have typed before hitting the “Send” option. But we often remember about this too late to discover the comments have become embarrassing. Apple wants to save this problem. The iPhone maker files a new patent that should save customers from autocorrect errors.

The new document suggests that iPhone users will be able to correct their text messages after they are being “sent” via the smartphone. The gadget will get an instruction to send however it will be possible to add changes to the message before its transmittal has happened.

Apple calls its patent really interesting. It sounds as “Transient Panel Enabling Message Correction Capabilities Prior to Data Submission.” The patent offers particular modifications which will add an opportunity to add corrections to the SMS you have created while the handset is sending it to the recipient. 
The feature will be available mostly to the words that were autocorrected by your iPhone. It’s unclear how the company is going to program its devices so that autocorrect options could be corrected by users during the sending process but it will be nice if something like this is offered to consumers.
Will this feature appear on the iPhone 6? The rumors say nothing about it yet but since the patent was filed back in 2012 everything is possible. Maybe the next-generation smartphone could offer a new option that minimizes the amount of autocorrect errors offered by the iOS gadget. Any thoughts on this issue you wish to share?

How to Jailbreak iOS 7.0.5 with Evasi0n Program

Can you update to iOS 7.0.5 if your iPhone model is supported by this firmware release? Let’s listen what hackers advise users. If it happened that you already installed the latest operating system, don’t worry. You can later downgrade and jailbreak your gadget once again or wait till iOS 7.1 jailbreak launch.

According to MuscleNerd, it’s best to stay away from the latest Apple release and avoid upgrading to iOS v.7.0.5. Similar advise was shared by the Evad3rs team of hackers who have created the jailbreak solution for firmware 7 that is fast and untethered.

iOS 7.0.5 Jailbreak Guide: How to Use Evasi0n7 for iPhone 5S / 5C

Some people already report that it’s possible to jailbreak iOS 7.0.5 with Evasi0n7 program. At the same time, the procedure is risky since this utility hasn’t been officially updated to support the changes brought by Apple to its mobile firmware.

The best thing you can do for now is not install this firmware and stay on previous 7.0.4 version which can be easily jailbroken and unlocked [in case you wish to switch your iPhone carriers in any country across the world]. There plenty of methods to unlock, but the fastest is via IMEI factory unlock services that work for all firmwares, smartphone models and basebands.

The process for jailbreaking is a bit different. One hacker has even explained how it works. As Stefan Esser noted, you can use Evasi0n but before you jailbreak you should apply some changes. For example, you need to change 11B511 into 11B601 in your binary. This can make the tool work on the newest operating system.

It is yet pretty difficult to make such changes. Even Esser reported that he wasn’t able to upload the new binary since it could violate a copyright. How can ordinary users add such an innovation? Do you have any ideas?

You can surely search the web and find the modified versions of Evasi0n for v.7.0.5 jailbreak but it takes time and once again it is risky.
