iOS 6.1.3 Jailbreak Using Evasi0n Not Possible As Apple Patches Exploit

2/27/2013 05:13:00 PM - 0 comments

Whilst many people thing that Apple has been a little slow on the mark in plugging the Evasi0n jailbreak that was released at the start of the month by the Evad3rs team, the news today is that an iOS 6.1.3 jailbreak will no longer be possible with Evasi0n.

Two new versions of iOS have been released since the launch of Evasi0n but these were to fix critical bugs and neither of them affected this untethered jailbreak. A report on the Forbes website however, suggests that Apple is working on patching the various exploits that allow Evasi0n to work and they are planning a new iOS release. Planetbeing has been speaking with Forbes' Andy Greenberg and he has revealed that iOS 6.1.3 beta 2 which was released a couple of days ago, patches at least one of the bugs that was exploited by the Evasi0n jailbreak. This could mean the end of the Evasi0n jailbreak for devices pre-installed with iOS 6.1.3. Anyone who is running the current version of iOS 6 and wants to retain their untethered jailbreak should refrain from updating their software.

The patched vulnerability pertains to the Time Zone setting and although Planetbeing is still currently running some tests, the domino effect of having one exploit patched will have devastating effects on the Evasi0n jailbreak. Planetbeing has stated that if one of the vulnerabilities doesn't work, Evasi0n doesn't work. He also said that they could replace that part with a different vulnerability, but Apple will probably fix most if not all of the bugs that have been used when iOS 6.1.3 is released.

Several million idevices have been jailbroken since the release of Evasi0n and it now looks like the end of the ride. It could be another month before we see the next firmware update. We will of course be keeping a close eye on things as they progress and will be sure to update you as news arrives. Until then, if you are using a jailbroken device, we recommend that you stick with your current iOS version and don't update your device until someone in the jailbreak scene says it is safe to do so.

Jailbreak iOS 6.1.2 Using Sn0wbreeze

2/25/2013 12:41:00 PM - 0 comments

Sn0wbreeze 2.9.10 has just been released to allow an untethered jailbreak on iOS 6.1.2. If you have an iPhone 5, iPhone 4S or any of the other newer iOS devices we suggest that you jailbreak iOS 6.1.2 using Evasi0n.

The popular Sn0wbreeze jailbreak tool has now been updated to version 2.9.10, bringing with it a number of improvements and additions focusing on the new iOS 6.X untether. Whilst most people anxiously waited to get their hands on the Evasi0n jailbreak from the Evad3rs team, there are still some users who prefer to stick with the tried and tested Sn0wbreeze software. Version 2.9.10 of iH8sn0w's software is still completely windows only and Sn0wbreeze only supports A4 powered hardware.

If you have an older device that relies on a carrier unlock + hacktivation, Sn0wbreeze is the way to go. Using Sn0wbreeze you can cook a custom firmware for your device without the upgraded baseband so that you can unlock it with Ultrasn0w. Sn0wbreeze 2.9.10 supports pre A5 devices such as the iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4 and fourth generation iPod Touch.

If you plan on using Sn0wbreeze 2.9.10 to jailbreak iOS 6.1.2 you first need to download the latest version of Sn0wbreeze and make sure that hte iOS device to be jailbroken is connected to your PC and running the latest firmware. Next you will need to located and unarchive your download of Sn0wbreeze before running the exe file. Next you will need to hit the blue next button and select the browse for an IPSW and point Sn0wbreeze to the relevant firmware for your device. Once Sn0wbreeze successfully identifies the provided IPSW file you just select next and click on the Simple Mode option. Sn0wbreeze will start to do what it does and you may have to wait a while. Once ready, Sn0wbreeze will ask you to put your device into Pwned DFU mode. Once done, Sn0wbreeze will provide you with an alert to say that the device is now in Pwned DFU mode. Close Sn0wbreeze, open iTunes and select the connected device from the left hand menu. Press and hold the left Shift key on the keyboard before clicking on Restore in iTunes. When asked for a firmware file to be selected you should point to the custom created IPSW from Sn0wbreeze which will be located on your computer desktop. Allow iTunes to go through the restore process and once completed you will have a fully jailbroken iPhone with Cydia on your home screen.

So there you have it, an untethered jailbreak for iOS 6.1.2 for older devices using Sn0wbreeze.

iPhone Jailbreak – Get Siri To Read Tweets

2/22/2013 12:36:00 PM - 0 comments

Siri was introduced with iOS 5 and it has had mixed publicity. It does have its uses and recent improvements have broadened its functionality. Now you can get Siri to read new tweets in your timeline on your iPhone. This comes courtesy of TweetFeed which is a new jailbreak tweak by Devin LaFleur.

As far as voice recognition technology goes, there is a lot to be offered. TweetFeed is an intuitive little tweak and once you install it, it will allow your new tweets to be read out by Siri. At the moment it doesn't offer much more than this but as this is one of the developer's first projects, it does hold a lot of promise. You do have to give this tweak permission to access your device's Twitter accounts, and once you have you are ready to go. This tweak only reads the Tweets from the first account you give it so those of you with multiple accounts might be a little disappointed.

If it proves to be a popular tweak, we may see developer LaFleur add support for multiple accounts as well as the ability to read the newest tweet by a specific individual. We have tested TweetFeed ourselves and we have to say, that it works really well and if you feel like you have been neglecting Siri, this tweak will certainly give it a meaning once again.

If you fancy testing TweetFeed out for yourself, you will find it over at the Modmyi repository for free. It is definitely work checking out especially if you are big into Twitter.

Jailbreak iOS 6.1.2 Untethered On iPhone 5 And More With Evasion

2/20/2013 09:29:00 AM - 0 comments

The iOS 6.1.2 update was released today by Apple to address some bugs found in the OS which is great news. Some even better news, is that the jailbreak hasn't been patched. The Evad3rs team did however work around the clock to update the Evasi0n tool and we are happy to report that you can now jailbreak iOS 6.1.2 untethered on the iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPod Touch and all other devices using Evasi0n v1.4.

All iOS devices that are able to run iOS 6 right the way through to iOS 6.1.2 are supported by Evasi0n including the iPhone 5. The only exception is the new Apple TV 3 which can't be jailbroken at the moment. Jailbreaking doesn't cause any harm to your device but it is always a good idea to back up your device using iTunes or iCloud before you jailbreak.

Jailbreaking iOS 6.1.2 using Evasi0n v1.4 is exactly the same as before and if you have used Evasi0n to jailbreak iOS 6 or iOS 6.1, then jailbreaking iOS 6.1.2 won't be a problem. Just in case though we have included a brief tutorial that you can follow.

The first thing to do is update your device to iOS 6.1.2 using iTunes. OTA updates can mess with the jailbreak so a fresh restore via iTunes is recommended. The next thing you need to do is turn off the Passcode Lock if you have it enabled and then download Evasi0n 1.4. Start up Evasi0n on your computer and simply click on the “jailbreak” option. All you have to do now is sit back and let Evasi0n do the rest. Don't touch anything while your device is being jailbroken. Once completed, your device should boot straight back up and you will see a new jailbreak icon on your home screen. Tap on this in order to finish the process. You device will reboot a few times for a little while before it finally boots into the jailbroken state. That's it, you're done. If everything has worked Evasi0n will tell you that the jailbreak is complete and Cydia will be available on your home screen.

Apple To Release iOS 6.1.2 Early This Week

2/18/2013 09:07:00 AM - 0 comments

Apple is to release iOS 6.1.2 early this week in a bid to fix exhance and lock screen passcode bugs. Shortly after the release of iOS 6.1 it became apparant that a major security flaw allowed basically anybody with a spare couple of minutes to slip through the passcode system and access a device's confidential and supposedly secure data. The release of iOS 6.1.1 last week that fixed lingering cellular and battery issues with the iPhone 4S is also susceptible to this security flaw.

An urgent update is required from Apple to sort the mess out and according to iFun this should happen early this week. Whenever Apple releases a new software update, users are quick to check it out and report any issues that they find. When it comes to security issues though, users are less likely to forgive these mistakes. The major security flaw was discovered last Wednesday.

Apple has always prided itself on its high level of security in its software product so a new update being released so soon was always likely. It isn't known at this stage whether the untethered Evasi0n jailbreak will also be patched with this new update but hopefully with all the fuss and rushing with this new update they won't spoil things just yet. Apple have already acknowledged the Exchange problem and they are said to have people working around the clock to prepare a suitable fix for this. There is no official date for the release of iOS 6.1.2 but as always, as soon as we have any news we will let you know.

Apple Confirms Fix For iOS 6.1 Exchange Bug On The Way

2/15/2013 02:13:00 PM - 0 comments

There was a lot of criticism when Apple released iOS 6 and a public apology was signed by Apple CEO Tim Cook. The criticism seemed to have died down but now Apple is coming under fire for the inadequacies found in iOS 6.1. There were connectivity issues with the iPhone 4S which were quickly fixed with iOS 6.1.1. Then there were issues with battery life and a flaw in the passcode lock screen. Now it seems there is an issue with Exchange support.

Everything seemed to be fine when iOS 6.1 was released at the end of January and there were a number of improvements built into this build. It has however quickly become apparent that there are problems that were triggered with this release. Apple has reacted very quickly and they have acknowledged that the point release does have an issue with “excess exchange activity after accepting an exception to recurring calendar event” and that a software release will be made available to rectify this problem.

To the average person, the exchange issue might not seem like a big problem but it has certainly been causing distress to those professionals who are in charge of maintaining corporate servers in enterprises. Exchange administrators were the first to pick up on the fact that iPhone and iPad devices running on iOS 6.1 were gathering excessive logs and this was also the reason why Microsoft recommended that all those in charge of servers were to block all devices running iOS 6.1.

Support article TS4352 on the Apple support website acknowledges this problem. No time scale has yet been given for the release of the software fix but we assume that we will see iOS 6.1.2 very shortly. As an interim fix, Apple has suggested that users disable and then re-enable the Calendar on the associated Exchange account on the device. This is done by going to Settings>Mail, Calendars, selecting the relevant Exchange account and then switching the Calendar option off and then back on after a few seconds.

Jailbreak iOS 6.1.1 Untethered With Evasi0n v1.3

2/13/2013 05:54:00 PM - 0 comments

The jailbreak community has done it again and pulled off a universal untethered jailbreak. The Evad3rs team has come up with an untethered jailbreak for the newly released iOS 6.1.1. iOS 6.1.1 was released in a hurry to fix issues with the iPhone 4S and the Evasi0n jailbreak tool has been updated to deliver the same untethered jailbreak it delivered for iOS 6.0/6.1 on iOS 6.1.1.

It was noticed rather quickly after its release that iOS 6.1 was causing some iPhone 4S users problems relating to cellular performance but has has been fairly prompt in releasing a remedy and the 23MB update should end these problems. A tweet that was sent out earlier by Planetbeing confirmed that Apple had not prevented the jailbreak with iOS 6.1.1 and also that an update to Evasi0n was imminent. That update has been released and Evasi0n v1.3 is now available and the jailbreaking process is just as simple as it was before.

Apple usually responds with an iOS release that patches exploits used for the purpose of a jailbreak but the timing of the Evasi0n tool probably means that Apple has not yet had the time or resources to create, test and release an update. That day will probably arrive soon and for all devices so it is important not to update your device to any future firmware until a reputable developer states otherwise especially if you want to keep your jailbreak.

For those who are using iOS 6.1.1 the updated Evasi0n tool is now ready to download for Windows, Mac and Linux users. Most of the bugs present in the initial Evasi0n release seem to have been ironed out but if you do spot any, be sure to report them to the Evad3rs team so that they can deal with them.

iOS 6.1.1 On Its Way

2/11/2013 09:04:00 AM - 0 comments

There were a number of issues that cropped up with the recent iOS 6.1 release and it looks like Apple are working on an update that should eradicate these. Reports of issues following new iOS updates are nothing new and there have been some issues with almost every major iOS release. The latest iOS 6.1 release seems to have plenty of issues though.

Degraded battery life is something that we have all become very used to with new updates but it looks like the iOS 6.1 update is proving so bad that carriers such as Vodafone in the UK have warned their customers not to update their iPhone 4S's to the latest version of the iOS citing that there is a 3G data issue post update. Vodafone has asked all their customers to hold off on updating while Apple works on fixing this issue.

It looks like Apple are indeed working on an update and according to one German blog called iFun, iOS 6.1.1 is in development and is currently being tested by carriers and beta testers around the world. This update is believed to be aimed at correcting the data issues that have been reported as well as a popular Exchange bug that has led Yahoo! To disable the ability to manage mobile meetings on iOS devices. These along with battery life issues will no doubt be something that Apple will want to fix as quickly as they can.

Apple updates are often released to address specific bugs or vulnerabilities and many fear that this new release will affect the recently released iOS 6 jailbreak, Evasi0n. This new update will arrive any day and we don't expect any new functionality just bug fixes.

Evasi0n Jailbreak Not Patched In iOS 6.1.1 Beta 1

2/08/2013 11:17:00 AM - 0 comments

The Evasi0n jailbreak for iOS 6 has had a massive amount of interest since its lauch. More than 100,000 people downloaded the package within the first ten minutes of its release and Cydia's servers were bombarded more than 14,000 times per second at the peak of the traffic spike. There were a lot of iOS users fearful that this new jailbreak would be lost with the introduction of iOS 6.1.1 beta 1 by Apple but this fear has been squashed by Pod2g which is great news for the moment.

When Apple seeded iOS 6.1.1 to developers many feared that they would close the vulnerabilities in iOS 6 that allowed the Evad3rs to produce the untethered jailbreak for more than twenty iOS devices. After downloading and inspecting the firmware build, Pod2g took to Twitter to let all his followers know that iOS 6.1.1 is still susceptible to the exploits contained in Evasi0n.

This is great news for everyone who is enjoying having a fully functioning untethered jailbreak on devices such as the iPhone 5 and the fifth generation iPod Touch. Pod2g's tweet also came with a warning that although Apple hasn't fixed the jailbreak with iOS 6.1.1 beta 1, users should still stay clear of downloading and installing this build if they have access to an official developer account. Apple may have chosen not to immediately combat the vulnerabilities but the Evasi0n tool is not yet set up to liberate this particular version.

Apple hasn't introduced anything big with the initial beta of iOS 6.1.1 and it is highly likely that a second or third beta release will contain the security changes necessary to prevent Evasi0n which can jailbreak iOS 6.1 from injecting the jailbreak files in the next firmware public release. At the moment Evasi0n hasn't been patched but as always it looks like we should sit tight on the currently supported firmware and wait to see how things pan out.

Jailbreak iOS 6 Untethered With Evasi0n

2/06/2013 11:22:00 AM - 0 comments

It's finally here. The long awaited jailbreak solution for iOS 6. We can all rejoyce, Evasi0n has been released by Evad3rs and it gives users an untethered jailbreak for iOS 6.1 on nearly every device. This untethered jailbreak is available for windows, Mac and Linux.

Earlier this year Team Evad3rs was established and this group comprises of some of the jailbreak community's most talented developers. Names include Pod2g, Planetbeing, MuscleNerd and more. All of these people have produced reliable jailbreaks in the past. This group was assembled in order to develop an untethered jailbreak for iOS 6 for post A5 devices including the iPhone 5, iPad mini and the latest generation iPad. All of this was achieved on Monday with a userland jailbreak tool called Evasi0n.

If you own an iPhone 5, iPhone 4S, iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPad 4, iPad 3, iPad 2, iPad mini, iPod touch 4 or iPod touch 5 you can now jailbreak it using Evasi0n. The iOS firmware versions that are supported by Evasi0n include iOS 6.0, iOS 6.0.1, iOS 6.0.2 and iOS 6.1. The only device that isn't supported by Evasi0n is the Apple TV 3.

The new Evasi0n tool is very user friendly although we do have to remind all users not to update their devices over the air and instead to download the latest iOS 6.1 firmware and update it via iTunes or the standalone ISPW to take full advantage of the new features of iOS 6.1 with the added benefits of this untethered jailbreak.

It has been a long time coming. IOS 6 was originally released in September of last year and it features many improvements including a radically revamped Maps App, Facebook Integration and improvement to Siri, Mail and other native apps. With iOS 6.1 officially released last Monday and now Evasi0n those who have been waiting to jailbreak their idevices can finally do so.

Evasi0n Jailbreak Will Be Available For Download On Monday, February 4

2/04/2013 12:35:00 PM - 0 comments

The new iOS 6 untethered jailbreak known as Evasi0n has been the talking point for all Apple fans over the weekend. The release date for this untethered jailbreak has been confirmed by the official twitter account of team Evad3rs as Monday, February 4, 2013. Planetbeing also confirmed this date on his twitter account yesterday.

Last week, team Evad3rs hinted that the jailbreak would be available and that it would be the first jailbreak capable of jailbreaking the iPhone 5. The status bar on the official Evasi0n website is currently showing 96% progress for final testing and preparation with the next step being release. This jailbreak is something that people have been waiting months for especially those who purchased the new iPhone 5. This is the first time that an untethered jailbreak will be made available for iOS 6 and this means that all the users that have been anxiously waiting will soon be able to upgrade their iOS 5 devices to the newest version of Apple's operating system.

Team Evad3rs have kept the details of this new tool under wraps to stop Apple from patching existing vulnerabilities before the tool reaches the general public. Some information was released in the past couple of months but we really are anxious to see exactly what this new tool can do. We do know that the new tool will support almost every iOS device including iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch and the only exception is the new Apple TV 3.

There is very little time left to wait and according to the rate in which the Evasi0n website is changing we reckon that this new untethered iOS 6 jailbreak will go live later this evening. Of course once it does and we have time to get our hands on it we will bring you everything you need to know. Stay tuned everyone, the wait is finally over.

For a while it looked as though we were never going to see a jailbreak for iOS 6 but now we are finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. This jailbeak is going to be untethered which means that people won't have to connect their device to a computer every time it is rebooted or turned off. It really is fantastic news and we can't wait to get our hands on this iPhone 5 jailbreak. The clock is ticking and once this jailbreak goes live we will be sure to let you know.
