UnthreadedJB Makes Us to Beleive that Unthredera1n Jailbreak Is Running on iOS 6.1.3 / 4
Promises, promises, and nothing but promises. However videos that were uploaded on YouTube by UnthreadedJB team are really looking realistic.
You can als see the video of some enthusiast where is clearly shown the whole jailbreaking process. But on original iPad running iOS 5.1. So that’s the best proof because it is really working.
Last week, a hacking team called UnthreadedJB appeared out of nowhere to release an untethered jailbreak for older iPhones, iPads and iPod touches running iOS 5.1.1 or earlier. The team behind the jailbreak has now gone onto claim that they have a working untethered jailbreak for iOS 6.1.3 and iOS 6.1.4 running on newer devices like the iPhone 5, iPhone 4S etc. This is newsworthy, since evasi0n doesn’t work on iOS 6.1.3 and above.
UnthreadedJB always appeared to be fake, given their broken English tweets, but the team did deliver a working untethered jailbreak, albeit for an older iOS versions that reused known exploits. Here’s what evad3rs member planetbeing had to say about unthredera1n:
a) some real work is done, at least porting the patches and reimplementing the exploit in non-ROP [Return-oriented programming] form and b) these people secretly CAN spell. Quite an interesting community troll it looks like.
According to saurik, it’s a reimplementation in non-ROP form of the rocky racoon pf thing. An excellent choice since it can be exploited trivially in a few lines of code pre-iOS 5 if you don’t have to use ROP. Use of the amfid trick negates having to use ROP.
Also apparently there is a HIDDEN readme file wherein proper spelling, grammar and punctuation is used that credits us. We’re seriously being trolled hard.
I wish they used and/or updated my ios-patchfinder project so that it’d work on more than iPhone 4 CDMA though.
The target audience for unthreded’s older iOS version jailbreak was further reduced by the requirement of Linux, which only a minority of users have.
