iPhone users who like to jailbreak their smartphones surely know about Evasi0n and Pangu jailbreak tools. The first one was introduced by the infamous Evad3rs team of hackers and it supports iOS 7 and 7.0.x firmware versions widely used by millions of people across the world. The second one is the creation of the Chinese team of hackers who were unknown till they introduced this only solution for 7.1.x firmware jailbreaks.
Both Pangu jailbreak and Evasi0n jailbreak are nominated for 2014 Pwnie Awards! These programs might get the awards as hackers did a big job creating the exploits and releasing the solution for public use to free people from all the restrictions set by Apple.
The Pwnie Awards is the ceremony that is held each year. It celebrates all the innovations discovered by hackers and security researchers and awards the best of the best. Both Pangu and Evad3rs team are good are finding bugs and holes in the mobile firmware and using them to create the special programs that can jailbreak the iPhones and iPads.
iOS 7 Jailbreaks Evasi0n and Pangu Might Get Pwnie Awards
iOS 7 jailbreak awards nomination is a great sign. This means that both programs can be used no matter what some people might say. Of course, it is risky to jailbreak, but most people succeed without any problems and consequences.
Both iOS 7 jailbreak tools are nominated for the same award titled “Best Privilege Escalation Bug” meaning there should be only one winner unless judges decide to share this award between the two teams.
As the Nomination page of the Awards state, this award will go to the team that exploited and found the most interesting escalation vulnerability. As the event organizers say, Evasi0n jailbreak was nominated for the second year in a row. In 2014 they managed to use four vulnerabilities to allow people untethering their devices.
As for Pangu tool, the credit is given not only to the Chinese guys but also to Stefan Esser, whose exploits are used by this team. This jailbreak is a hit that no one expected to see and find a great tool now as this is the only solution for untether iOS 7.1.x jailbreak. At the same time, Pangu jailbreakers state that they found all the exploits themselves.
The Chinese hackers thank the Pwnie Awards for this nomination, but add
“we want to clarify since Pangu 1.1. all the kernel bugs are originally discovered by us”
Hackers from the infamous Evad3rs team who are best known for releasing Evasi0n untethered jailbreak for iOS 6 and iOS 7 iDevices say they get a lot of messages from users who keep asking how to jailbreak iOS 7.1 iPhone and iPad.
All these emails have similar questions from Apple fans, including “Can I jailbreak iOS 7.1 with Evasi0n” and similar messages. Everyone knows that it is impossible to install Cydia if your iPhone or iPad is not jailbroken. Cydia is a jailbroken app store with great jailbreak tweaks and applications that you can use after you successfully jailbreak.
Evad3rs team cannot jailbreak your gadgets now because there is no iOS 7.1 jailbreak tool. Evasi0n does not support iPhone 5S, 5c, 5 and 4S with iOS 7.1 and iOS 7.1.1 so you should be patient and wait till such program is available.
Some sites ask you to pay for such jailbreak but they are all fake, according to the Evad3rs [these hackers know what they are talking about so trust them and do no pay for fake promises].
Right now the four Apple smartphone models mentioned above [iPhone 4S, 5, 5S and 5c] canbe jailbreak with Evasi0n only if they are running iOS 7 up to iOS 7.0.6. No later version of this mobile firmware can be jailbroken for these cell phones.
The only handset that can be jailbroken is the iPhone 4 which has iOS 7.1 installed on it and this jailbreak known as GeekSn0w supports only Windows PC.
Everyone with the newest iPhones are advised to wait till the confirmed download links for Evasi0n 7 become available and hackers officially announce this jailbreak. Till then you can become only another victim of scam sites that want to get your money but never deliver the actual jailbreak for 7.1 operating system.
A lot of people keep searching Google for how to jailbreak 7.1.1 iPhone and iPad using Evasi0n tool or other untethered program. Some sites actually promise iOS 7.1.1 untethered jailbreak with unknown tools and these are scam sites you need to spot and never use.
People who have updated to iOS 7.1.1 which is the most recent firmware update offered by Apple in April 2014, users are stuck and they cannot download Cydia tweaks without being jailbroken. Apple patched the exploits used by the Evad3rs and made it impossible to use this program for untethering your iDevice.
Is It Possible to Jailbreak iOS 7.1.1 iPhone and iPad Now?
Some Apple fans keep becoming victims of scams that promise paid jailbreak solution and fail to deliver it because it is impossible these days. Yes, you are not able to download and use jailbreak 7.1.1 Evasi0n program because it doesn’t exist!
To jailbreak iOS 7.1.1 you have to wait till hackers show a real working tool which might not happen till late fall or early winter. Websites that claim to offer 7.1.1 untethered jailbreak will take your money and disappear leaving your iPhone 5S / 5c / 5 / 4S, iPad Air and mini non-jailbroken.
Hackers say all jailbreaking solutions for 7.1.1 are fake so do not believe sites that promise you a fast result at some price. Official jailbreaks are free to use and hackers report their release on their official web-sites and on Twitter.
Different scam programs are either dangerous to use because of the number of viruses they contain or simply don’t work at all. It’s up to you what to do but we advise you to wait till there is a good reliable method introduced by well-known hackers. Jailbreaking community is also waiting for the jailbreak so you will know once the tool is launched to public.
Hackers are waiting for WWDC event where Apple should show iOS 8 to them. They will most likely spend this summer finding a key for iOS 8 jailbreak that will be released in late 2014 with 7.1.1 jailbreak following it [if the similar situation that happened with iOS 7 and 6.0.4 jailbreak repeats].No more news from Evad3rs is available for today.
Evasi0n update is released by the Evad3rs for all users with iOS 7 firmware who want to untether jailbreak their device. It supports all operating system versions up to 7.0.6. The version 1.0.8 works for all gadgets with pre-iOS 7.1 OS.
The update is good for everyone who doesn’t plan on upgrading to the most recent firmware release but wish to use jailbreaking apps and tweaks from Cydia. The upgrade offered by the well-known hackers can be downloaded from here:
This is untethered tool that quickly jailbreaks your iOS 7, 7.0.1 and 7.0.x handset or tablet device. It does everything automatically. All you have to do is backup your iDevice before jailbreaking it. Then you launch the program and wait till it completes the process.
Evasi0n was released in winter 2013. It took professional hackers a couple of months to find exploits in Apple’s new firmware. These exploits were patched with iOS 7.1introduction thus it became impossible to untether or tether this update.
Hackers keep searching for new holes in the mobile operating system created by the Cupertino-based giant. As we’ve seen on Twitter, some hackers managed to find a way and jailbreak firmware 7.1. For example, iH8sn0w says that his iPhone 4Swith iOS 7.1 is now jailbroken. Another person, Winocm, also said he found a way to boot this iPhone 4 model with the same firmware installed on it.
There are no public programs for the latest operating system jailbreak yet. Users hope that such a tool will appear sooner or later. As rumors mention this could happen after Apple releases iOS 8 major update. We don’t know how long it can take the Evad3rs and others to find new exploits and finish the new utility.
With iOS 7.1 release being available for public download iPhone, iPad and iPod touch users line up to read iOS 7.1 jailbreak news hoping to see the release date or even download link for Evasi0n7 with support for this newest firmware. You can even find messages on Facebook and other social networks that assure there is iOS 7.1 jailbreak program you are able to download “from here.”
Some blogs keep telling they can jailbreak your iOS 7.1 iDevice directly from the smartphone or tablet. Don’t believe such “news” as this is real fake. Eva3drs haven’t launched a new jailbreaking program or updated their famous Evasi0n7 which can still perform jailbreak for iOS 7 firmware up to version 7.0.6 and not above.
Hackers will report officially their iOS 7.1 jailbreak event. Their Twitter accounts have no such news at the moment. Their official websites with Evasi0n7 software has no news about support for firmware version 7.1.
There are a lot of fake reports on iOS 7.1 jailbreak within a week of the firmware update release. Don’t believe everything you read unless you are following hackers’ blogs and official websites. Once such programs appear for public use, they will be free to download with detailed instructions introduced by Evad3rs or some else known in the jailbreaking community.
Here is the list of official sources where you can find real information about the state of working jailbreak for iOS 7.1 device:
The Evad3rs team of hackers has updated their popular untethered iOS 7 jailbreak Evasi0n7 to version 1.0.7. This upgrade is good for users who have installed the newest Apple mobile firmware iOS 7.0.6. The tool should solve the problems with Cydia package list.
Evasi0n7 1.0.7 fixes the bug that causes Cydia packages list not being updated automatically. The updated jailbreak solution comes with no other updates, options, features, and tools. It is the same as previous version 1.0.6 but it solves the issue experienced by a lot of people.
You should install this v.1.0.7 only if you really have problems with Cydia packages. If you don’t have this problem you can avoid updating to version 1.0.7 as this will make you re-jailbreak your smartphone all over again.
Download Evasi0n7 1.0.7 Links
iOS 7.0.6 can be jailbroken with the new Evasi0n7 1.0.7 update that fixes problems discovered in previous release. Windows and Mac users can download the updated jailbreak directly from these links:
We all know that jailbreaking causes risks for iPhone users. It can go wrong messing up your device and leaving you non-jailbroken. Most people manage to get the good results, of course, thus millions iOS fans choose to jailbreak with free programs offered by hackers. They all understand that they performing jailbreak at their own risk.
Risks exist for non-jailbroken iPhone smartphones as well. SSL problem discovered by Apple and fixed in iOS 6.1.6 and iOS 7.0.6 updates is now fixed. But this is not news any more. Even hackers released a Cydia tweak with fix for SSL bug without update to iOS 7.0.6 used by a lot of jailbroken users.
There are reports that assure different monitoring apps are able to get through the review process set up by Apple and exploit iOS 7 firmware even if it is not jailbroken. In other words, everyone who has an original fruit smartphone is at potential risk.
iOS 7 Bugs Are Dangerous to Non-Jailbroken Users
Before snooping applications were dangerous to users who jailbreak only. The situation is different now, meaning you are as safe when you jailbreak as when you don’t jailbreak. In other words, you can easily jailbreak iOS 7 without problems and more danger than customers who are against such process.
The reports were shared by FireEye researchers. Being sensitive to possible dangers means having an equal chances for staying non-jailbroken or untethered jailbreaking with Evasi0n7 tool. It’s now up to you what to do with your iPhone. Hopefully no one will attack your iDevice, but Apple has to work harder fixing all the vulnerability issues experts report.
Maybe the iOS 7.1 update will offer some solutions. Still it’s most likely that most problems will be gone after iOS 8 release. For now you can either stay on iOS 7.0.4 or install 7.0.6 to protect your SSL / TLS sessions. Evasi0n7 can jailbreak both versions of operating system.
It is great to hear that the latest firmware update iOS 6.1.6 can now be jailbroken. Apple unexpectedly presented this upgrade earlier this week to fix the bugs on older smartphones that can’t get iOS 7 work on them. Hackers were fast to present an update to their jailbreaking tools. Both Evasi0n7 and P0sixspwn programs are now updated to support the jailbreak for the newest public firmware versions available. If you are running iOS 6.1.6 you can use p0sixspwn 1.4 to untether jailbreak your iDevice. While SSL security problem has been fixed in Apple’s updates, users can also return to their jailbroken state via iOS 6.1.6 jailbreak.
If you happened to update to iOS 6.1.6 by mistake you can now solve the problem of being non-jailbroken and use p0sixspwn 1.4 jailbreak for iOS 6.1.6 to get untethered result. Thanks to hackers, this is possible really soon after the official public release.
Thanks to Winocm, iH8sn0w and SquiffyPwn hackers you are able to install this update and enjoy being jailbroken no matter what. It helps iPhone 3GS and iPod touch 4G users to install iOS 6.1.6, jailbreak it with Redsn0w in tethered status and complete the jailbreak with p0sixspwn that changes “tethered” into “untethered” state.
You can download p0sixspwn 1.4 from Cydia store after you jailbreak with Redsn0w or p0sixspwn 1.4This untethered jailbreak tweak makes your device jailbroken even after reboots and restores.
It might be more complicated than jailbreak iOS 7 devices with automatic Evasi0n7 tool that does everything on its own, but it’s still a free way to jailbreak an iOS 6gadget.
There are not too many people running previous firmware. As reports say, about 80% of users have installed iOS 7 operating system versions by now meaning iOS 7 jailbreak is more popular these days.
Still if you are using iOS 6, it’s your chance to install p0sixspwn program for complete untethered results. Note that you are jailbreaking at your own risk.
Millions of users waiting for months to see untethered iOS 7 jailbreak, and now once it is released Apple seems to kill the main exploits used in Evasi0n7 program making iOS 7.1 jailbreak impossible just like it was with iOS 6.1.3 for a long while. The public iOS 7.1 firmware hasn’t been presented yet, still the latest beta launched for testing showed the exploits were patched.
iOS 7 Jailbreak Final Countdown
It is still not clear whether hackers are able to fix the problem and release untethered jailbreaking tool in time for iOS 7.1 introduction or not. The best advice for anyone who wishes to stay jailbroken after this firmware update surfaces is to not upgrade. Stay on iOS 7.0.4 and download as many Cydia tweaks as you wish.
It is easy to jailbreak. Besides, you can always unlock iPhone [if you have this smartphone] via IMEI number. Factory unlock for AT&T iPhone, Verizon, Vodafone, O2, Orange and any other carrier is fast and affordable. Enjoy the double benefits with being both unlocked and jailbroken, as it might be soon impossible to get jailbreak.
Why to Jailbreak Right Now
Surely, the jailbreaking community will come up with some solution sooner or later. Still if the situation of 2013 is going to repeat itself [the new firmware versions were non-jailbroken for 6+ months] it’s best to jailbreak now while you are able to do this. As soon as you update to iOS 7.1 you might not get such an opportunity.
Evad3rs released their update for iOS 7.0.6 jailbreak soon after Apple presented this new firmware version for public download. Evasi0n7 v.1.0.6 is designed to perform untethered jailbreak on any iDevice that is supported by this mobile operating system, including iPhone 5S and 5c, iPhone 5 / 4S / 4, iPad mini, iPad Air, iPad 3 / 4 / 2, and iPod touch 5G.
