iOS 8.1.1 / 8.1.2 Jailbroken

Author: BigBoss  //  Category: Jailbreak, News

Sorry for the late post. But just to confirm, both these firmwares have been jailbroken. Taig http://www.taig.com/en/ has taken care of the latest firmware.

As of right now, all iOS8 firmwares are jailbroken. Please make sure you don’t update beyond 8.1.2 in the near future if you want to keep your jailbreak until you hear otherwise.

Finally, if you’re still on iOS7, now is the time to get to iOS8 while the signing window for firmware is still open by apple – before they release an update and close you out.

iOS 8 release

Author: BigBoss  //  Category: Jailbreak, News

iOS 8 is due to be released sometime today (Wednesday, Sept 17), so jailbreakers should avoid updating until a new jailbreak is released.

If you feel the need to update anyway, remember that it will be a one-way trip to iOS 8, and there might not be a jailbreak available for iOS 8 for a long time. You will not be able to downgrade or restore to iOS 7 after upgrading to iOS 8.

ios7.1.1 Jailbreak Pangu

Author: BigBoss  //  Category: News

Pangu was released a couple days ago to handle jailbreak for ios7.1-7.1.1 devices. The jailbreak seems to be working alright.

Personally, I suggest just staying on 7.0-7.0.6 for now as the 7.1.1 update is not really worth it for the effort. However, if you think you need to get to 7.1.1 you should do so soon. Apple is expected to release 7.1.2 any day which will close the signing of restores of 7.1.1.

For those having issues in a boot loop after the jailbreak you might try shining a light at the light sensor. (http://www.reddit.com/r/jailbreak/comments/294wob/jailbreak_with_pangu_and_bootloop_try_this_fix_oo).

iOS7 7.0.4

Author: BigBoss  //  Category: Jailbreak, News

Now that iOS7 has been jailbroken, it is advised that anyone that ever wants to be on iOS 7.0.4 *ever* gets there very soon. Speculation is that Apple will release an update soon and when that occurs, they will stop signing 7.0.4. Users will have a limited time window to get onto iOS7 and be jailbreakable. Further, reports are that evasi0n only runs on a freshly restored 7.0.4 rather than one a device that got to 7.0.4 via “software update”. So if you have not done so yet, now is the time to backup your device in iTunes, restore it to a fresh 7.0.4, and keep it on ios7.0.4.

For those that have jailbroken, keep in mind that some tweaks may not work. And every tweak needs to be recompiled to work on ARM64 (iphone 5s) so many things installed may simply not show up until updated.

iOS7 Jailbreak substrate released

Author: BigBoss  //  Category: Jailbreak, News

Mobile substrate (now called cydiasubstrate) has been updated and released for the ios7 jailbreakers. With this, developers can now start compiling and testing their tweaks on arm64 devices such as the iphone 5s. Every tweak will need to at least be recompiled for arm64 support. Something like sbsettings needs a full recompile plus every toggle needs to be recompiled. Several tweaks still aren’t ready. If a tweak does not support arm64 on your 5s type device, it simply wont load or do anything.

Developers wanting to upgrade their tweaks to ios7 can follow this awesome guide. You need a MAC running xcode 4.4 and xcode 5.0.2: http://iphonedevwiki.net/index.php/Updating_extensions_for_iOS_7

iOS 7 jailbreak released today

Author: BigBoss  //  Category: Jailbreak, News

So an iOS7 jailbreak was released today. However, it was done without working with the community. So almost none of the normal jailbreak material are ready (cydia, mobile substrate, any of the tweaks you want to install). Since none of us developers have had any time with ios7 yet, we are all starting our work now. So it will be a while for everything (anything) to be working.

Also, for Chinese users, the jailbreak app installs something called “Taig” (a chinese appstore?) and you have to make sure to check the “cydia” box during jailbreak installation to get cydia installed.

Supporting the iphone 5s is going to be a larger task for most of us developers. The device runs 64bit arm, so unlike in the past, most tweaks have to be recompiled using a mac.

I strongly suggest that you download the jailbreak but do not install it yet for a couple weeks while developers update things. I suggest that you also do not upgrade your device keeping it at 7.0.4.
