iPad Air 2 and iPad Mini 3 Unveiling: Live Video coverage via Evasi0n Jailbreak – Recently, beyond talk of a new utility to jailbreak 8.1 and iOS 8.0.2, be it either evasi0n or Pangu, the forthcoming iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3 have arguably been the most exciting topics amongst Apple enthusiasts. As we highlighted yesterday on Evasi0n Jailbreak, the new iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3 will further the current stealth development of the next UnTethered jailbreak for iOS 8, mostly because said iPads (and iOS 8.1) are the final pieces to the puzzle. Tomorrow, after what will be weeks and months of anticipation, the company’s annual October iPad unveiling event will commence with an opening keynote presentation at 10:00 AM Pacific Time (1:00 PM Eastern). During the event, Apple will unveil not only the iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3, but if recent rumors pan out, possibly a Retina-equipped iMac, the iPod touch 6, a new Apple TV and/or a refreshed Mac Mini. As a result of tomorrow’s conference, jailbreakers who own iPhone, iPad or iPod touch models successfully jailbroken on iOS 7.1.2, or any iteration of iOS 7 for that matter, should avoid any potential iOS 8 update, as it will unquestionably result in the loss of said devices’ current jailbroken state. Nevertheless, like the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus launch last month, this remains an exhilarating period for Apple fans – we’ll feature a complete live video feed on this post, as well as provide a link to detailed written updates.

Apple Releases 8.0.2, Is it Possible to Jailbreak 8.0.2 and Should I Update? – Today, ensuing the short-lived iOS 8.0.1 update, which was recalled shortly following its release, Apple issued 8.0.2 to the general public. Like its predecessor, 8.0.2 effectively patches the Pangu UnTethered Jailbreak – that’s not necessarily a bad thing and we’ll elaborate on the topic shortly. In addition to being available for download immediately via both iOS’ built-in OTA (short for over-the-air) ability, 8.0.2 can be downloaded through iTunes – however, current jailbreak users should certainly avoid the update. In what appears to be a hotfix of sorts, iOS 8.0.2 provides a remedy to the peculiar connectivity and Touch ID issues brought on by iOS 8.0.1. In addition to correcting the blatant usability issues in yesterday’s release, as with 8.0, the vulnerabilities exploited by Pangu to achieve an UnTethered jailbreak remain patched in 8.0.2, making it impossible for any device to jailbreak 8.0.2 UnTethered using the current utility. For more on 8.0.2, as well as the firmware’s jailbreak status, continue reading!
iOS 8.0.2 Released – Is It Possible To, And Can I, Jailbreak 8.0.2 UnTethered?
As far as 8.0.2 is concerned, the update appears to be relatively small, bears a revised build number over 8.0 and is intended to not only improve a number of issues present in 8.0, but also those introduced with 8.0.1.
In addition to correcting complications with HealthKit that prevented developers from integrating their apps with Apple’s new Health app, 8.0.2 also rectifies problems with third-party keyboards, the default Photo Library, SMS and MMS messages, Reachability, videos not playing properly through mobile Safari and more.

Pre iOS 8.1 Jailbreak 8.0.2 Pangu or Evasi0n Utility: How To Maintain Your Jailbreak on 7.1.2 – Today, like with each day following iOS 8’s initial release, we find ourselves closer to the mobile liberation that will inevitably come in the form of an iOS 8.0.2 UnTethered jailbreak. As detailed in preceding articles, not only are the evad3rs (the ingenious team of hackers behind the creation of the first iOS 6 and iOS 8 UnTethered jailbreak utilities, evasi0n and evasi0n7 respectively) working diligently to discover new vulnerabilities, but the newest jailbreakers on the scene are also racing for a release: Pangu. Furthermore, with Pangu financed by a third-party Chinese company with monetary interests in jailbreaking, Pangu may very well be the first to issue an iOS 8 jailbreak for 8.0.2 and 8.1. However, that’s not exactly the focal point of today’s article – regardless of what anyone may say, the past is still very much a part of the present. Each day following Apple’s release of iOS 8, which in turn patched Pangu, we received a number of questions related to the tool’s functionality; not so much whether Pangu can jailbreak 8.0.2, but whether it still supports 7.1.2 ensuing the aforementioned patch.

How to Jailbreak 7.1.2 Untethered iOS 7.1.1 With Pangu on the iPhone 5S, iPhone 5C, 4S,4, iPad Air, Mini 2, 4,3 and iPod Touch 5 – Today, in a surprise and certainly unexpected release, a Chinese team of hackers who go by the name of Pangu released an UnTethered utility that can jailbreak 7.1.2 and iOS 7.1.x on all iPhone, iPad and iPod touch models that can update to the firmware! Apparently, i0n1c was correct in suggesting that multiple teams who were financed by third-party Chinese piracy sources would be competing to release the next UnTethered jailbreak. Although when the hacker said that, he was alluding to iOS 8 and not 7.1.1, but either way, the next jailbreak is finally here, albeit bundled with a piracy store and an enterprise certificate. While funded by a Chinese piracy service, Pangu is the only iOS 7.1.1 and 7.1.2 Untethered jailbreak solution and we’re going to tell you exactly how to utilize it in today’s tutorial!
Jailbreak Update x2: Although just released, it’s possible to jailbreak 7.1.2 UnTethered via the Pangu utility. In light of today’s 7.1.x update, we’ve revised our tutorial to include support for iOS 7.1.2 and assist our reader in the process of jailbreaking the update.

Jailbreak 7.1.2 Prerequisite Instructions
Apple Releases iOS 8.1 Beta 2, Evasi0n and/or Pangu 8.0.2 Jailbreak to Support, and Jailbreak, 8.1 – Earlier today, following Apple’s recent release of both iOS 8.1 beta 1 and iOS 8.0.2, the company has seeded the second beta iteration of 8.1 to those enrolled through Apple’s official iOS Developer program. The latest beta firmware, which is available to developers for immediate download via the company’s Developer Center, boasts a revised build number of 12B407. Interestingly, like its predecessor, 8.1 beta 2 offers less improvements over 8.0.2, further solidifying our initial analysis that there will likely be a number of subsequent beta versions prior to the final version intended for public release. In fact, 8.1 beta 2’s changelog carries little weight over that of its predecessor, suggesting the majority of said changes are likely bug fixes. Furthermore, the aforementioned point also seems to indicate that there likely aren’t any additional security fixes present in 8.1 beta 2, which in turn means that the forthcoming update likely won’t patch any of the iOS 8 vulnerabilities the evad3rs and/or Pangu have discovered thus far and plan to implement into their imminent UnTethered iOS 8 through 8.0.2 jailbreak, and likely 8.1, utilities. By way of explanation, any jailbreak tool released for iOS 8 will likely jailbreak 8.1 completely UnTethered, in addition to functioning on, supporting and jailbreaking, iOS 8.0.2. For more on the all-new 8.1 beta 2 firmware, continue reading. Read more…
iOS 8 Jailbreak 8.0.2 and iPhone 6 Plus Updating – Should I Update for an iOS 8 Jailbreak? – Recently, ensuing the release of both iOS 8.0.2 and 8.1 beta 1 (to those enrolled in Apple’s official Developer Program), we’ve received a plethora of questions pertaining to the former of the two latest releases. Interestingly though, said questions aren’t regarding whether there’s a jailbreak iOS 8.0.2 utility currently available, but instead something else related to jailbreaking. Prior to delving into the previously alluded to question, it’s important to understand the background of both the latest 8.0.2 public release and the current Untethered jailbreak utility. The latter of the two aforementioned items was regrettably patched by Apple when the company issued iOS 8 to the public, meaning the Pangu UnTethered 7.1.2 utility cannot jailbreak 8.0.2 on any device, including the new iPhone 6 Plus and iPhone 6 models – the tool will only ever function on 7.1 through 7.1.2, until the Pangu Team releases an updated iteration of Pangu. As for iOS 8.0.2, continue reading past the break for more on the firmware and the mostly commonly asked question we’ve received as of late pertaining to both 8.0.2 and the next jailbreak! Read more…
Apple Releases 8.1 Beta 1, Upcoming iOS 8.0.2 Jailbreak to likely Support and Jailbreak 8.1 – Today, ensuing Apple’s recent release of iOS 8.0.2 on Thursday, the company has seeded the first beta iteration of iOS 8.1 to those enrolled in the official iOS Developer program. The update, which is available for immediate download via the Apple’s Developer Center, features a revised build number of 12B401. Surprisingly, the 8.1 beta 1 update doesn’t introduce many improvements and offers virtually no additional features over 8.0.2, suggesting that there will likely be numerous betas prior to the firmware’s inevitable release. Furthermore, the aforementioned fact also indicates that there are likely no real security fixes, which in turn means that iOS 8.1 doesn’t patch any of the vulnerabilities the evad3rs and/or Pangu have discovered and are planning on implementing into their forthcoming UnTethered iOS 8 through 8.0.2 jailbreak utility. In other words, the to0l will likely jailbreak 8.1 fully Untethered, in addition to functioning on, and supporting, iOS 8.0, the short-lived 8.0.1 update and 8.0.2. For more on the latest 8.1 beta 1 firmware, continue reading past the break! Read more…
Apple Releases 8.0.1, Is It Possible To Jailbreak 8.0.1 Untethered? Update Breaks Touch ID And Cell Service!
Apple Releases 8.0.1, Is it Possible to Jailbreak 8.0.1 Untethered? Update Breaks Touch ID And Cell Service – Today, exactly one week after releasing iOS 8 to the general public and, in turn, effectively patching the Pangu UnTethered jailbreak, Apple issued the company’s first iOS 8 update in the form of 8.0.1. In addition to being available for immediate download via iOS’ built-in over-the-air (commonly referred to as OTA) update ability, 8.0.1 can be downloaded via iTunes – however, whether your jailbroken or not, all users should avoid 8.0.1 for the time being. Interestingly enough, it appears as though the firmware not only breaks cellular connectivity for a number of iPhone owners, but also causes significant issues with Touch ID. Beyond the rather glaring usability issues though, 8.0.1’s predecessor, 8.0, patches the vulnerabilities exploited by Pangu, rendering the the UnTethered utility useless on the latest firmwares and making it impossible for the public to jailbreak 8.0.1 UnTethered on any device! For more on 8.0.1, as well as jailbreaking, continue reading past the break. Read more…
Biggest iOS 8 Jailbreak 8.0 iPhone 6 Plus Update Yet, Utility in Sight – Last night, ensuing yesterday’s exciting iOS 8.0 jailbreak coverage, another substantial update unfolded. Previously, we mentioned that the two primary dev teams currently on the jailbreak scene, namely Pangu in the aforementioned coverage, are currently in the process of developing a new jailbreak tool for iOS 8 and the iPhone 6 Plus. Now, MuscleNerd of the evad3rs (the legendary group that brought us the first iOS 6 and iOS 7 UnTethered jailbreaks, dubbed evasi0n and evasi0n7 respectively) tweeted out a clue as to the team’s second informal iPhone 6 Plus iOS 8 jailbreak update. For more on the latest in the world of jailbreaking, continue reading past the break, as it’s a rather important and incredible jailbreak update! Read more…
New iOS 8 Jailbreak iPhone 6 Plus 8.0 And All iDevices Update, There’s Progress – Recently, both the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus, the latest and biggest refresh to Apple’s hardware lineup, pun intended, created quite a frenzy in the world of iOS and Apple enthusiasts. Stores quickly sold out of both iPhones, with the iPhone 6 Plus in critically low supply, the devices are receiving rave reviews and customers couldn’t be happier, but what about an iPhone 6 Plus and iPhone 6 jailbreak for iOS 8? Thankfully, and interestingly enough, there’s been a rather substantial iOS 8 jailbreak 8.0 development since our recent coverage on the status of the next UnTethered jailbreak utility. Also, beyond the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, iOS 8’s adoption rate is purportedly up by approximately 30% of all iOS-based devices, confirming that a vast number of jailbreakers perviously jailbroken on iOS 7.1.2 are desperately seeking a new jailbreak for iOS 8.0. Additional information on the forthcoming iPhone 6 Plus jailbreak iOS 8 tool can be found after the break. Read more…
