Evad3rs Not Happy with p0sixspwn iOS 6.1.3-6.1.5 Jailbreak

As promised, albeit a little late, iH8sn0w and winocm have delivered an untethered jailbreak for A5 devices running iOS 6.1.3-6.1.5, but their use of an unused exploit is not sitting well with some in the jailbreaking community.


Evad3rs member pod2g took to Twitter to blast iH8sn0w and winocm for using an exploit originally found by JailbreakMe creator Comex. Pod2g believes using a "highly valuable root exploit" on older firmware was a waste of time, and he claims iH8sn0w and winocm have destroyed any chance for it to be used for future jailbreak releases. A lot of people in the jailbreaking community agree, and are worried Apple will now close the exploit since it was made public.

Evad3rs on evasi0n 7: Piracy 'Not Acceptable'

The team that launched evasi0n 7 to jailbreak iOS 7 devices has penned an open letter to address rumors and speculation circulating around the jailbreak community. The main controversy erupted thanks to evasi0n 7 replacing Cydia with the Chinese app store TaiG in China. The store has subsequently been pulled from evasi0n due to allegations of app piracy.

The full letter from the evad3rs explains that a deal was made with TaiG to simply bundle the app store with evasi0n in China. No jailbreak exploits were shared with the company, and as part of the agreement TaiG is contractually bound to not have piracy in their store. Additionally, users in China who jailbreak their devices are not locked into using TaiG if they prefer an alternative like Cydia.

evad3rs Already Have All the Pieces They Need to Jailbreak iOS 7

It looks like the jailbreaking team who brought us evasi0n is getting closer to cracking iOS 7. Planetbeing tweeted this afternoon: "We're still working hard on the jailbreak. May have all the pieces at this point (but not certain yet)."

This does not mean a public jailbreak is right around the corner, but it does show progress is being made.
