Apple Releases iOS 8.1.3, Is it Possible to Jailbreak 8.1.3 and Should I Update? – Today, in a rather devastating blow to the jailbreak community, albeit a foreseen one, Apple issued iOS 8.1.3 (the third incremental 8.1.x update, succeeding both 8.1.2 and 8.1.1) to the general public. Currently, unlike the latest firmware’s predecessor, 8.1.3 cannot be jailbroken by way of the latest TaiG jailbreak utility, which has officially been patched. In light of the rather painful fact that it’s currently not possible to jailbreak 8.1.3, today’s news isn’t entirely bad for jailbreakers – we’ll elaborate on that as the article goes on. As with past iOS 8, and even iOS 7, updates, in addition to being available through Apple’s iOS over-the-air (commonly referred to as OTA for short) update option, 8.1.3 can be fully downloaded and installed via iTunes: the ‘old school’ method veteran jailbreakers can appreciate. However, while it’s possible for any device supported by iOS 8 to update to 8.1.3, it’s of the utmost importance that current iOS 8 through 8.1.2 jailbreak users avoid today’s new firmware at all costs! As alluded to in the preceding sentences, the new 8.1.3 update is a minor release. Knowing that 8.1.3 doesn’t implement any noticeable changes, updating to the new release certainly wouldn’t justify the loss of one’s jailbreak. We also have confirmation from Apple that several of the vulnerabilities exploited by TaiG to jailbreak iOS 8.1.2 are patched in iOS 8.1.3. However, the remaining vulnerabilities should be able to be ‘recycled’ in a sense for use in a new jaibreak tool.

Jailbreak iOS 8.1.3 and Release, How To Stay Jailbroken – While recent rumors surrounding the release of iOS 8.1.3 (a firmware that’s widely expected to patch the PP and TaiG iOS 8.1.2 jailbreak utilities) had started to slow since their inception in mid-December when a popular site, MacRumors, reported seeing hits from iOS devices running 8.1.3 – today said rumors have been reignited. While there’s no doubt that the jailbreak for 8.1.2 will inevitably be patched, seeing as iOS 8.2 (the next major iOS release) is on the horizon and expected to be release in “early 2015″ alongside the Apple Watch, such a patch may come sooner, in the form of iOS 8.1.3. It’s not a secret that a number of minor issues are still present in iOS 8.1.2, the latest public firmware as of January 25th, 2015. If Apple opts to issue 8.1.3, the third 8.1.x installment, prior to the inevitable 8.2 release, it’s all but certain that Apple will choose to patch the iOS 8 vulnerabilities exposed by TaiG in 8.1.3, like the company did in iOS 8.1.1 for those Pangu relied upon to achieve an Untethered jailbreak on iOS 8 through 8.1.

Mac owners can now natively jailbreak their iOS devices without having to fuss with a virtual machine or Bootcamp to first install Windows – PP’s tool is capable of delivering an Untethered jailbreak straight from the comfort a Mac. While it’s entirely possible that the PP utility, labeled PPghost, is a rip-off of TaiG’s jailbreak utilizing the same exploits to achieve the same effect, it’s nevertheless an extraordinary benefit to the community, as those who were holding off on jailbreaking because they own a Mac can now take comfort in knowing they’re covered. Similar to TaiG’s one-click Windows TaiGJBreak 1.2.0 tool for iOS 8, the Mac version of PPghost is able to jailbreak 8.1.2 on the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 5S, 5C, 5, 4S, the iPod touch 5th generation, as well as all iPad models, including the iPad Air 2, iPad Mini 3, the original iPad Air, iPad mini 2, iPad 4, the original iPad mini, iPad 3 and the older iPad 2. Surprisingly, although the tool is from a different group than the mastermind XN developer behind TaiG -what a number of jailbreakers are now referring to as the simplest jailbreak yet – the new PP Mac OS X utility aims to match the aforementioned simplicity and level of ease as TaiG.

Permanent iOS 8 Brick Method Exposed, iOS 8.1.3, 8.2 TaiG Jailbreak Patch May Be The Answer – Currently, the latest public firmware, being iOS 8.1.2, is able to be fully jailbroken by way of TaiG. However, as time continually moves forward, we’re quickly approaching not only the rumored iOS 8.1.3 firmware, which is expected to patch the aforementioned iOS 8.1.2 jailbreak utility, but also iOS 8.2 and the Apple Watch’s release. However, while iOS 8.1.3 and 8.2 might not bode well for the jailbreak community, they may quickly become a necessity. Today an interesting, and rather dangerous, vulnerability for iOS 8-based devices was publicized by popular iDevice hacker iH8sn0w. In a back-and-forth conversation between said hacker and MuscleNerd (unofficial leader of the quondam prominent evad3rs dev team), iH8sn0w revealed a command that, if run, will result in a permanently bricked device. To provide subtext, “bricked” is used to refer to a piece of technology that is no longer usable for an infinite number of different reasons (based on the device and software involved). Previously, it was popular belief that it was impossible to ‘brick’ an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch, as said devices can always enter either Recovery or DFU mode, perform a restore via iTunes and be ‘out of the woods’, so to speak. However, as of now, that’s no longer the case – jailbreakers may need to take additional measures to ensure their devices’ safety, as it could become as useless as a paperweight if the previously alluded to command were executed. For additional details on the new iOS 8 soft-brick, iOS 8.1.3, jailbreaking and how to protect yourself, continue reading past the break!
iOS 8.2 Jailbreak: Apple Releases iOS 8.2 Beta 4, Can TaiG Jailbreak iOS 8.2? – Today, as a vast majority of jailbreakers prepare themselves for what could very well be the the impending release of iOS 8.1.3, the firmware that’s expected to patch the Untethered TaiG jailbreak, Apple seeded the fourth beta iteration of iOS 8.2, being 8.2 beta 4, to developers officially enrolled in the company’s iOS 8 Developer Program. Apple’s latest beta update is available for immediate download via two methods: through the traditional Developer Center or as an OTA (short for over-the-air) update, found in the Settings app, for developers running either iOS 8.2 beta 3, beta 2 or beta 1. Furthermore, today’s 8.2 beta carries a slightly revised build number over its predecessor of 12D5461b, compared to 12D5452a. In light of the fact that the aforementioned bump in build numbers is rather minor, it can rightfully be assumed that the new 8.2 beta offers little in the way of improvements and modifications over its predecessors. However, for comparison, the current public firmware (being iOS 8.1.2, as of Monday, January 12th, 2015) is tied to the following build number, 12B440 – a much more substantive jump. While iOS 8.2 isn’t widely available to the public, as it’s restricted to developers, the firmware may very well be followed-up by a subsequent iOS 8 release later this week, possibly the public version of iOS 8.1.3, the plausible jailbreak-patching firmware. For complete details on iOS 8.2 beta 4 and iOS 8.1.3, including the possibility of a new jailbreak for either 8.1.3 or 8.2, continue reading past the break!
