iOS 8 Jailbreak iPhone 6 Plus 8.0 Status Update - The Future Is Here!

iOS 8 Jailbreak iPhone 6 Plus 8.0 Status Update, The Future Is Here - Today is undoubtedly an exciting time in the world of Apple and jailbreaking! However, as the inevitable public release of iOS 8, and the subsequent iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus launch approaches danger lurks on the horizon. On one hand, the forthcoming iOS 8.0 update will patch the longstanding UnTethered Pangu jailbreak 7.1.2 utility while on the other hand, the update will introduce a plethora of innovative and exciting features, including Continuity to bridge the gap between iOS and OS X, actionable notifications and a number of incredible Developer APIs, and will unquestionable shape the fate of future iOS 8 jailbreak tweaks and extension. The question we’ve received most often as of late is whether the developers on the jailbreak scene will create a new utility to jailbreak iOS 8 fully Untethered, as well as the iPhone 6 and the substantially larger iPhone 6 Plus. For more information on the future of iPhone 6 Plus iOS 8 jailbreaking, jump past the break!

iPhone 6 Plus Jailbreak iOS 8 - Move Over 7.1.2 Jailbreak, The Future Is Here

Jailbreak iOS 8 iPhone 6 Plus

For those of you who aren’t familiar with Apple’s latest hardware announcements, being the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus and the Apple Watch, we strong advise visiting our recent coverage on the topic, which contains Apple’s official videos for each of the new devices.

With iOS 8 scheduled for mass release this Wednesday, September 17th, the sheer number of jailbreakers who will mistakenly update is nearly insurmountable, but as with every major release, it’s inevitable.

Jailbreak 7.1.2 Once Apple Issues iOS 8

Put simply, iOS 8.0 will patch Pangu, i.e. you will not be able to jailbreak iOS 8 on any device upon the firmware’s upcoming release.

That being said, a new utility will eventually come to fruition from one of the numerous jailbreak teams currently racing for a release.

Prior to Pangu for iOS 7.1 through 7.1.2, famed hacker Stefan Esser (commonly referred to by his online handle: i0n1c) suggested that the iOS 8 jailbreak would be a “blood bath,” with numerous teams, primarily new groups originating from China, competing against one another to be the first to successfully jailbreak the firmware. Of course, at the time, evasi0n7 for iOS 7 through 7.0.6 was patched and those on iOS 7.1 (or higher) couldn’t jailbreak. Lo and behold, following the hacker’s rather odd prediction, the all-new Chinese-based Pangu Team released the incredibly epic Pangu jailbreak for 7.1.x.

Will There Be An iOS 8 Jailbreak?

An iOS 8 jailbreak is coming, it’s not a matter of whether a tool will be released, but when such a utility will liberate millions, including those with the all-new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.

Previously, in releasing the first ever Untethered iOS 6 and iOS 7 jailbreaks, evasi0n and evasi0n7 respectively, the evad3rs were cautious in waiting for all new iOS-based devices to be released prior to pushing out the aforementioned utilities. They were smart in waiting, as it ensured that all iDevice owners could, if they so desired, enjoy the endless benefits of jailbreaking.

However, with the Pangu’s grand splash into the jailbreak scene, the Chinese team disrupted the evad3rs’ flow, burning through exploits that could have been saved for use in an iOS 8 jailbreak. Ultimately though, in retrospect,  Pangu’s decision turned out to be the right move as the utility has gone unpatched.

That being said, it’s possible that this year, for iOS 8, the jailbreak developers may not wait for new iPads to be issued before releasing the first iOS 8 jailbreak. That possibility is further solidified considering the fact that there are likely other currently unknown Chinese teams lurking behind their endless screens, waiting to take home the glory, and the small fortune, that goes along with said glory.

Although history may repeat itself, and we may have refreshed iPads before a new jailbreak, we’ll definitely have a utility faster than ever before.

Also, regardless of the teams’ ambition, drive and goals, they’ll definitely need to get their hands on the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus to test, and in turn exploit, Apple’s all-new A8 processor.

How To Stay Jailbroken Once iOS 8 Is Out

For now, in spite of the next jailbreak’s development unavoidable period of production, if you wish to maintain your current device(s) jailbroken status, avoid iOS 8 at all costs.

If you wish to test the firmware, it’s currently possible to upgrade to iOS 8 GM (the final developer build intended for public release), downgrade back to, and re-jailbreak, iOS 7.1.2 using Pangu - our iOS 8 Gold Master install guide is available here. However, don’t wait too long, as Apple will stop signing 7.1.2 following iOS 8’s official release, making downgrading virtually impossible.

As for the next jailbreak, keep your browsers locked to Evasi0n Jailbreak for complete coverage on the tool’s development.
