iOS 8.1.1 Jailbreak Demoed on iPad 3

The latest version of iOS has been jailbroken untethered, and demonstrated on an iPad 3. Developer iH8sn0w posted a video demonstrating the iOS 8.1.1 jailbreak only days after the firmware's release. In the update, Apple closed three of the exploits used by Pangu Team to jailbreak iOS 8.1.

While the iOS 8.1.1 jailbreak is a sign of progress, it currently only works on 30-pin devices which predate the Lighting connector. The news comes as Apple has already seeded iOS 8.2 to developers. At this point in time, the best bet for those looking to jailbreak is to move forward with the Pangu jailbreak on iOS 8.1. Apple is likely to stop signing the iOS 8.1 firmware any day now.

Last Chance to Jailbreak, Apple Releases iOS 7.1 Beta 3

Apple released iOS 7.1 beta 3 to developers on Tuesday. According to p0sixspwn creator iH8sn0w, the new release does not break the evad3rs latest jailbreak, but an unofficial version of evasi0n7 was needed to jailbreak the new beta. You can download that version here, but remember this tool was not released or sanctioned by the evad3rs and should be used with caution.

It is also a safe bet that Apple will patch evasi0n7 very soon, which means this could be the last chance users have to upgrade to iOS 7 and jailbreak their phones. Users still running iOS 6 will not be able to jailbreak once Apple closes the exploit, and there is a slim chance a new jailbreak will be released for any future versions of iOS 7.
