Jailbreak 7.1.1 iOS Semi Untethered on iPhone 4 with GeekSn0w Tutorial [Video]

Jailbreak iOS 7.1.1 Semi Untethered on iPhone 4 using Geeksn0w: Written and Video Tutorial – Today, amidst iOS 7.1.1 (Apple’s latest firmware firmware update, which was released on Tuesday) and the considerable amount of clamor it’s caused in the jailbreak community, popular iOS and jailbreak YouTuber iCrackUriDevice created a new video tutorial for how to jailbreak 7.1.1 on the iPhone 4 using the all-new GeekSn0w utility. The latest GeekSn0w for iOS 7.1.1, like its predecessor, is based on winocm’s opensn0w project, which in turn is powered largely in part by Geohot’s now-ancient 2010 limera1n bootrom exploit. Due to the fact that limra1n only functions on devices powered by A4 CPUs, GeekSn0w’s support doesn’t extend beyond the iPhone 4 (the last A4-based device Apple supports on iOS 7). While the updated version of GeekSn0w is still incredible and will undoubtedly assist millions of iPhone 4 owners in jailbreaking 7.1.1, the utility is an updated and modified version of both winocm’s opensn0w and Geohot’s work with limera1n from four years ago that allows iPhone 4 owners to achieve a Semi UnTethered iOS 7.1.1 jailbreak. The process detailed in this in-depth written jailbreak 7.1.1 tutorial will function on GSM and CDMA iPhone 4 devices running iOS 7.1.1 – newer iPhone, iPad and iPod touch owners should refer to, and make use of, our UnTethered 7.0.6 evasion tutorial if at all possible.

Jailbreak 7.1.1 UnTethered semi GeekSn0w Tutorial

As previously mentioned, the new GeekSn0w jailbreak 7.1.1 tool supports the following iPhone models running iOS 7.1.1:

  • iPhone 4 GSM (both AT&T and Global versions)
  • iPhone 4 GSM Revision A
  • iPhone 4 CDMA (Verizon)

Additionally, due to limera1n and the iOS 7.1.1 jailbreak’s “Tethered” nature, iPhone 4 owners will be required to boot their devices Tethered with GeekSn0w every time the device is turned off to regain full usability. However, since the last iteration of GeekSn0w, the Developer BlackGeekTutorial has made significant updates to his tool that enable “Semi-Tethered” reboots on 7.1.1, which allow jailbreakers to use the majority of their devices (save Cydia, jailbreak extensions, Safari and the Mail app) without a complete Tethered reboot.  With GeekSn0w’s limitations in mind, you can proceed with this tutorial to achieve a Semi UnTethered 7.1.1 jailbreak on your iPhone 4.

Installing iOS 7.1.1 Will Force You to Lose Your Jailbreak on Your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch – As the majority of Jailbreak Evasion Info readers are already aware, Apple released iOS 7.1.1 to the public on Tuesday – a firmware that remains incompatible with evasion following Apple’s 7.1 jailbreak patching iteration of iOS 7. In spite of our detailed post highlighting yesterday’s release, a number of readers remain confused about whether it’s possible to jailbreak 7.1.1 UnTethered using evasi0n.

Apple Releases iOS 7.1.1, Is It Possible To Jailbreak 7.1.1 UnTethered?

Apple Releases 7.1.1, It’s Not Possible to Jailbreak 7.1.1 UnTethered – Today, over a month and a half after the devastating blow to the jailbreak community that was iOS 7.1 (a firmware that patched the UnTethered evasi0n jailbreak), Apple released iOS 7.1.1 to the general public. In addition to iOS 7.1.1 being available for immediate download via iTunes, the firmware is also available through Apple’s built-in iOS over-the-air (OTA) update feature. However, jailbroken users should avoid updating to 7.1.1, as they will essentially forfeit their jailbreak. Evasi0n7 is effectively useless on the newest 7.1.1 firmware, making it impossible for the public to jailbreak 7.1.1 Untethered. Although iOS 7.1 was the first significant iOS update since Apple revamped their mobile operating system with the release of iOS 7, today’s new 7.1.1 firmware is simply a minor update that corrects a few small bugs.

In addition to Cydia developers and hackers, the members of the Evad3rs (the Dev Team behind the creation of the iOS 7 evasion jailbreak utility) were in attendance and active during the talks and presentations. While WWJC borrows its name from Apple’s World Wide Developers Conference (WWDC), intended as a clever pun, the two are not to be confused – the latter exclusively covers Apple’s latest software achievements, whereas the former is dedicated to jailbreaking Apple’s mobile software: iOS.

iBoot Jailbreak 7.1 UnTethered Exploit Unusable, Next Jailbreak Detailed - As the majority of our readers are aware, when Apple released iOS 7.1 to the general public, the company effectively closed a number of vulnerabilities that the world-renowned evasi0n7 utility exploited to achieve an UnTethered jailbreak on iOS 7.0 through 7.0.6, making it impossible for the public to jailbreak 7.1 with evasi0n. Following the March 10th iOS 7.1 patch of the evasion jailbreak, well-known iOS hacker iH8sn0w began discussing an iBoot exploit for A5-powered devices (namely the iPhone 4S), that could potentially be applied towards another Untethered jailbreak utility.

Last month, proceeding the supposed Foxconn leak, a Japanese magazine published drawings and crude schematics of what is allegedly the iPhone 6 in both 4.7-inch and 5.7-inch variations. While today’s news isn’t as exciting as a jailbreak utility for 7.1 and the upcoming iOS 8 firmware, the latest renditions may provide an early look at what’s to come from Apple this fall and what the evad3rs will be up against when developing the next UnTethered jailbreak!

During this year’s exciting event, it’s excepted that Apple will both showcase and release iOS 8 in beta stages to registered iOS Developers.

Without a new jailbreak in sight, until now, the evad3rs will set their sights on the upcoming iOS 8 firmware. Read more…
