iOS 8.1.1 Security Flaws, Apple and Pangu Jailbreak

The Cupertino-based company offers the new update to users who can download iOS 8.1.1 for iPhone and other supported iDevices. Is there iOS 8.1.1 jailbreak available right now? Do Pangu security codes work on this new firmware just like they do on previous iOS 8 – 8.1 versions of Apple’s mobile operating system?

These questioned are finally answered. Sadly, the iPhone maker has patched several iOS 8.1.1 security flaws and thus the new improvements and enhancements brought to iOS users also kill Pangu jailbreak. Hackers can’t used the same exploits anymore once they are closed by Apple.

Both Chinese hackers and Apple have confirmed that iOS 8.1.1 exploits are patched and Pangu jailbreak no longer supporting this latest firmware upgrade. Thus, anyone who likes to stay jailbroken and doesn’t wish to wait till developers find other ways to jailbreak iOS 8.1.1 better avoid installing this update.

According to the source, hackers found exploits in dyld, kernel and sandbox profiles and all these three security patches are now listed by Apple.

If you have installed iOS 8.1.1 by accident you still have time to downgrade to iOS 8.1. As soon as the iPhone creator, Apple, stops signing this version you will no longer be able to complete this procedure via iTunes.


Pangu iOS 8.1.1 Jailbreak News: Are Exploits Patched?

Pangu iOS 8.1.1 jailbreak might not be available right after Apple launched this new firmware update. We’ve heard about iOS 8.1.1 exploits patched report from developers who are testing the first beta of iOS 8.1.1 released by the company last week.

If Apple kills iOS 8 jailbreak in the next iOS 8.1.1 hackers will have to search for new exploits that can be used in the next jailbreaking utility.

This way they will have to wait till hackers work on the new program and this might take much longer than it happened with iOS 8 Pangu jailbreak release. According to devs who share their impressions on the new firmware beta, it will bring some improvements to the iPhone 4S users and iPad 2 users. These users suffered from bugs, issues and problems on iOS 8. Hopefully their issues will be gone with iOS 8.1.1 update.

Users who wish to stay jailbroken might want to restore to iOS 8.1 while such an option is available. Experts say that you will be able to jailbreak this firmware and enjoy all the jailbreak applications and Cydia tweaks.

As one of the Pangu hackers notes, the new beta tested by devs show that the jailbreak exploit was killed. Hackers advice all users to update to iOS 8.1 or restore to this firmware version before the iPhone maker has officially launched the next iOS 8.1.1 version.

There weren’t official reports from hackers on their Twitter page and Weibo account, but they will surely follow once the firmware is updated and the jailbreak is not released because of the lost exploits.
