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.

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.
In an earlier article on the topic, we discussed how numerous jailbreak teams are racing to develop the next Untethered tool for iOS 8 and how said race will be a “blood bath,” according to famed hacker Stefan Esser. Better known throughout the jailbreak community as i0n1c, Stefan Esser was previously spot-on when suggesting that the next jailbreak (at the time evasi0n7 had been patched by 7.1 and Pangu wasn’t on anyone’s radar) would likely be born from the labor of a new Chinese-based team.
While the above information, that numerous groups are working tirelessly on the next UnTethered iOS 8 jailbreak, is undeniably exciting it’s nothing new for most who stay current on recent jailbreak developments. Read more…
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.

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.
