Prepare For iOS 8.3 Jailbreak And Apple Watch, Proper 8.3 Update Guide

How to Update for Future iOS 8.3 Jailbreak and Apple Watch – Today, a sizable portion of iPhone jailbreakers find that the moment of reckoning is upon them in light of the Apple Watch’s official release in 9 countries. However, prior to being able to fully use the device, one must update their iPhone 5 or higher (including the 5c, 5c, and the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus) to at least iOS 8.2, if not the current iOS 8.3 public firmware. That poses serious complications for those currently jailbroken on either > iOS 8.1.2 or iOS 8.2 betas 1 or 2 (both are jailbreakable, yet neither support the Apple Watch), as the latest TaiG jailbreak was officially patched by Apple with iOS 8.1.3. Having said that, while i0n1c successfully achieved an Untethered iOS 8.4 jailbreak on the first beta version of the firmware, and both Pangu and TaiG are confirmed to be creating new untethered jailbreak iOS 8.3 utilities, what about right now? Currently, as of writing this article, a jailbreak doesn’t exist for either of the aforementioned public firmwares that support Apple’s hottest post-PC wearable, so for those of you who already purchased the device and plan on receiving it either today or in the near future, you’ll need to leave the comfort of your jailbreak and update to iOS 8.3 – but like most things in life, there’s a right way and a wrong way to update. In light of that glaring fact, we’re going to guide you through the proper update procedure in today’s article – make the jump past the break to learn how to properly update to iOS 8.3 with the intent of jailbreaking when a new utility is released.

Jailbreak iOS 8.4 And iOS 8.3 Achieved, And Teased, By i0n1c – Release Unlikely

iOS 8.4 Jailbreak and iOS 8.3 Jailbreak Achieved by i0n1c, Teaser Hints at Unlikely Release – Earlier today, hacker Stefan Esser (better known online as i0n1c) released a video flaunting his latest alleged achievement: an iOS 8.4 beta 1 jailbreak, which presumably includes its predecessor, the latest public firmware, iOS 8.3. Given that TaiG was patched by Apple with the release of iOS 8.1.3, the public has been in desperate need of a new jailbreak utility to function on and, in turn, jailbreak either iOS 8.3 or the forthcoming iOS 8.4 firmware. However, such a tool will more than likely won’t come into fruition as the result of today’s jailbreak 8.4 teaser video posted by the aforementioned hacker who pulled a similar stunt last year with his so-called, and self-proclaimerd, “cyberelevat0r” jailbreak. For those of you who are either new to the world of jailbreaking or who simply require a reminder, approximately 11 months ago, i0n1c (a hacker who previously contributed willingly to the jailbreak community) posted a similar video as the one that’s propagating throughout the Apple blogosphere today that showcased a potential new jailbreak solution for iOS 7.1.1, a firmware that, like today’s iOS 8.1.3, iOS 8.2 and 8.3 releases, patched the current Untethered jailbreak at the time: evasi0n7. While it’s best not to put much stock in i0n1c’s latest work, the potential that it may influence the future of jailbreaking still exists. For more details on the purported iOS 8.4 and iOS 8.3 jailbreak, continue reading. Continue reading… »

iOS 8.3 Jailbreak TaiG Tool Expedited By Apple Watch, Will You Update?

TaiG iOS 8.3 Jailbreak Tool Expedited by Apple Watch, Will You Update? – Since iOS 8.1.3’s release in January those who either restore their devices or purchase new devices running said firmware or later have been unable to jailbreak, the same applies to iOS 8.3 (the latest public firmware). While there isn’t a jailbreak iOS 8.3 solution as of writing this article, both TaiG and now, thankfully, Pangu have confirmed the development of a new jailbreak utility, which will inevitably support the latest public firmware. While the public was under the impression that a new jailbreak would present itself prior to April 24th (we’ll explain why we’re referencing the 24th in particular shortly), it doesn’t appear as though it will happen and, as each day passes, the possibility is becoming increasingly less likely. As we’ve stated before, new jailbreak utilities take hundreds of hours to develop, from exploitation discovery to coding and an extraordinary amount of testing, as explained in the video we’ve taken the liberty of embedding below for an excellent audible representation of the jailbreak concept in a nutshell. For details on why this coming Friday is so important, the next jailbreak, iOS 8.4 and iOS 8.3, continue reading past the jump. Continue reading… »

Will iOS 9 And WWDC 2015 Affect The Jailbreak For iOS 8.3? Great Update!

iOS 8.3 Jailbreak Affected by iOS 9 and WWDC 2015? – Yesterday, as we’re all patiently (some of us more than others) awaiting a new jailbreak for iOS 8.3 from either TaiG or Pangu, who recently re-entered the jailbreak arena, Apple announced the event that will showcase the future of iOS and OS X: WWDC 2015. During the forthcoming event, which will be held in San Francisco, California at Moscone Center from June 8th to the 12th, Apple will undoubtedly unveil both iOS 9 and OS 10.11 (the next OS X installment) to the world and, in turn, seed the first iOS 9 beta. But what about jailbreaking, will it be affected by iOS 9? In spite of the fact that the TaiG jailbreak was patched by Apple with the release of 8.1.3, followed swiftly by both iOS 8.2 and iOS 8.3, as we’ve stated several times new jailbreak tools are currently in development. While the answer to the aforementioned question for long term affects is a definite “yes,” thankfully, the same can’t be said for the next iOS 8.3 jailbreak for all iDevices – its development will remain unaffected by iOS 9’s unveiling at the upcoming WWDC keynote. For more details on not only Apple’s forthcoming World Wide Developers Conference, iOS 9 and OS 10.11, but also jailbreaking and what we can expect moving forward, simply make the jump past the break to continue reading.

iOS 8.4 Beta 1 Released, iOS 8.3 Jailbreak Or iOS 8.4 – Which Will TaiG Jailbreak?

Apple iOS 8.4 Beta, iOS 8.3 Jailbreak or 8.4 Jailbreak, Which Will TaiG Conquer? – Today, fresh on the heels of iOS 8.3’s public release last week, Apple seeded the first beta iteration of iOS 8.4 to registered developers for sole purpose of testing what is now confirmed to be the next significant iOS 8 update, excluding any potential 8.3.x releases. While the public still eagerly awaits a new iOS 8.3 jailbreak for all devices, Apple appears to be expediting the speed at which the company releases new iOS updates. Today’s latest beta carries a build number of 12H4074d and is available for exclusive download via Apple’s dedicated iOS Developer Portal – seeing as this is the first beta of its kind, there’s clearly no OTA (over-the-air) update option. With Apple having now inadvertently confirmed that iOS 8 will reach as high as 8.4, a question that’s likely on a number of jailbreakers’ minds is whether the jailbreak developers will once again decide to wait for iOS 8.4 before releasing a new jailbreak or instead hastily finish what they’ve been working on and release the jailbreak for 8.3. Details and an analysis exploring said question concerning the logistics of a new jailbreak, as well as iOS 8.4 itself, can be found after the break! Continue reading… »

Pangu Testing iOS 8.3 Jailbreak Exploits – New Pangu Jailbreak Possible?

New Pangu Jailbreak iOS 8.3 Exploits, Jailbreak Development – Although the public awaits a new solution to jailbreak iOS 8.3, the latest public firmware as of this past Wednesday’s release, we have a ray of sunshine in an otherwise murky and uncertain time. In spite of the fact that a new jailbreak for 8.3 and iOS 8.2 is indeed in the works by TaiG, we have absolutely no official ETA, or even a timeframe for that matter. However, that being said, we mustn’t forget those who preceded TaiG – we have confirmation that Pangu may in fact be developing a similar iOS 8.3 jailbreak solution. Apple has undoubtedly picked up the company’s pace in mobile software development for iOS 8, succeeding the entire range of iOS 7 releases merely halfway through iOS 8’s lifecycle, and the same can also be said for jailbreak development, though not nearly as fast. In the past ~365 days, we’ve received more untethered jailbreak utilities and updates for said utilities and than for all of iOS 5, iOS 6 and iOS 7. Now, in spite of the fact that there hasn’t been a new jailbreak since iOS 8.1.3 patched TaiG’s latest public tool, we have confirmation that Pangu will begin dabbling in the creation of a brand new utility as they move past drama with former jailbreak contributor i0n1c (Stefan Esser). For more on the next iOS 8.3 and iOS 8.2 jailbreak, including Pangu’s involvement, continue reading past the break. Continue reading… »

iOS 8.3 Released, New TaiG iOS 8.3 Jailbreak Solution In The Works

New iOS 8.3 Jailbreak and its Release, TaiG’s Next Untethered Utility – Today, ensuing four beta releases, Apple issued iOS 8.3 to the general public. Although we’re still eagerly awaiting a new jailbreak utility, iOS 8.3 marks an exciting time for jailbreakers the world over – we’ve moved beyond both iOS 8.1.3, the TaiG jailbreak-patching firmware, and iOS 8.2. However, before we delve into jailbreaking, let’s quickly discuss iOS 8.3 as a software update. iOS 8.3, being the third substantial 8.x update, carries a significantly revised build number over its predecessor. As usual, in addition to being available for immediate download via the traditional iTunes Restore method, one could update their device to the firmware using Apple’s built-in over-the-air update utility, which is an option that’s strongly discouraged for prospective jailbreakers as it will undoubtably cause future complications with the forthcoming iOS 8.3 jailbreak. For more on iOS 8.3, the firmware’s features and a potential jailbreak 8.3 utility, continue reading. Continue reading… »

Apple Watch Jailbreak? We Need An iOS 8.2 Jailbreak Or 8.3 Jailbreak First!

Jailbreak Apple Watch: We Need an iOS 8.2 or 8.3 Jailbreak, Here’s Why – The jailbreak community has an exciting chapter ahead of it – in addition to expecting a new post 8.2 jailbreak utility, the highly-anticipated Apple Watch is slated for release later this month on April 24th, 2015. Beyond questions pertaining to a jailbreak for iOS 8.2, we wanted to address another topic that a number of our readers have pondered: the Apple Watch and whether the device will receive a jailbreak of its own. First however, for those of you who don’t know, the Apple Watch requires owning one of the following iPhone models on the public build of iOS 8.2 or later (iOS 8.3 beta 3 and beyond) – the iPhone 5, iPhone 5c, iPhone 5s, iPhone 6 or the iPhone 6 Plus. While the Apple Watch may function on other devices in light of a new iOS 8.2 and up jailbreak, we’re starting to get ahead of ourselves, one of the devices from the aforementioned list of iPhone models will be required for the device to fully function at launch – it will be available for pre-order later this week on Friday, April 10th. However, before we begin to contemplate the wonders of an Apple Watch jailbreak, we must first have one very crucial component or else such a feat won’t be possible: a new iOS 8.3 or iOS 8.2 Untethered jailbreak. For additional details on a possible Apple Watch and iOS 8.2 and up jailbreak, make the jump past the break! Continue reading… »

TaiG Updates Site, iOS 8.2 Jailbreak For iOS 8.3 Slated And What To Expect

iOS 8.2 Jailbreak for iOS 8.3 Slated and TaiG Update’s The Team’s Site – While the public has yet to receive a new jailbreak solution for iOS 8.2, we’re continually bombarded with questions pertaining to whether users can jailbreak iOS 8.2 and, considering they can’t currently, when they can expect to. Unforunately, although nothing has changed on that front (the latest jailbreak 8.2 overview status can be found on our latest coverage), TaiG updated their site to reflect additional insight of MSS 2015 – the Mobile Security Summit the group hosted in Beijing that a number of key and influential jailbreakers both attended and spoke at. However, it might not be the update those seeking to jailbreak were hoping for. Instead of releasing a jailbreak for iOS 8.2 during MSS, TaiG opted to hold off, waiting for iOS 8.3 and releasing an official statement; though convoluted, it essentially confirms what we’ve stated on Evasi0n Jailbreak for the past three weeks. For more on jailbreaking, iOS 8.2, as well as TaiG’s latest site update, continue reading past the break. Continue reading… »

Official TaiG Jailbreak 8.2 Comment Explained: iOS 8.2 Jailbreak Possibility

Official TaiG Jailbreak 8.2 Comment Examined: The iOS 8.2 Jailbreak – Today, as we move forward past MSS 2015, the number one topic on the majority of our readers’ minds is one pertaining to the next jailbreak, particularly an untethered iOS 8.2 jailbreak solution. While many put their faith in rumors that MSS would yield a new, and updated, iteration of TaiG capable of jailbreaking iOS 8.2, the staff of Evasi0n Jailbreak immediately dispelled said rumors with a number of posts based on our years of insider expertise. In the end, our predictions became reality – while the public didn’t receive a jailbreak for iOS 8.2, we instead have jailbreak developers more apt to tackle new firmware releases, such as iOS 8.3 and, by extension, 8.2. However, we now have additional word from the TaiG group that echoes what we’ve said concerning iOS 8.2 and its corresponding future jailbreak these past few weeks. Initially, we weren’t going to cover the topic – however, due to popular request, let’s delve into TaiG’s official comment.
