Ios 7.1.1 Jailbreak Free To All Who Dare To Try It - Cnet

Surprise iOS 7.1 jailbreak for most iPhones and iPads uses year-old flaw | Ars Technica

But is it safe? presented by An untethered iOS 7.1.1 jailbreak courtesy of Chinese developers Screenshot by Lance Whitney/CNET Those of you who want to apply an untethered jailbreak to your iOS 7.1.1 device now have a new source. Cooked up by Chinese developers and packaged as a file called Pangu, the new jailbreak will reportedly hack its way into any device sporting iOS 7.1.1 , including the latest iPhone 5S and iPad Air , tech site Redmond Pie said on Tuesday. The installation file currently supports only Windows but an OS X version is supposed to be on the way. iOS 7.1.1 launched in April as just a minor update to the mobile operating system. But hackers continually attempt to outdo Apple by striving to jailbreak the latest version of iOS, a process that lets users customize their iOS devices and run unsupported apps. However, users take a risk when they jailbreak their devices as the practice is not sanctioned by Apple and could pose security risks. A jailbreak from Chinese developers raises a particular red flag given the current cyberspying frenzy between the US and China. Related stories

How To Jailbreak iOS 7.1 And 7.1.1 Untethered Using 'Pangu' Jailbreak Tool - The Hacker News

Another is that jailbreak developers may bundle keyloggers or other types of malware inside the software that performs the operation, leaving users with a device that steals passwords, tracks geographic whereabouts, or performs other nefarious deeds. Neither of those risks appears to accompany the release this week of the PanGu jailbreak , but Ars hasn't verified its safety, security, or reliability. Readers who choose to run the program do so at their own risk. The jailbreak, according to security researchers at Lacoon Mobile Security , uses a digital certificate Apple provides to enterprise customers to bypass restrictions on unauthorized apps. Apple makes them available so that customers can establish their own in-house source of apps instead of relying on the App Store. PanGu uses the certificate associated with "iPhone Distribution: Hefei Bo Fang communication technology co., LTD." At the moment, usersmust physically connect their iPhones or iDevices to a computer, but it's possible thatPanGu could be refashioned to work remotely. "In these remote scenarios, attackers can lure users to download an app within a phishing email or as a link to a site," Lacoon researcher Ohad Bobrov wrote in a blog post published Wednesday . "A user falling for the scam will install that app without ever knowing that running the app has actually led to the jailbreaking of their device." The jailbreak works on most recent Apple mobile devices, including the iPhone 5S, 5, 5C, 4S, and 4; the iPad Mini; the iPad Air, and the iPod Touch running iOS 7.1 through iOS 7.1.x. Instructions and tips are available on reddit , although they are useful only to Windows users. The PanGu website appears to offer a Mac-compatible jailbreak, although it's not entirely clear since the site is available only in Chinese.

Many iOS users have posted on Reddit that the tool works successfully. Jailbreaking is a process of removing limitations on iOS devices , Apple's operating system, so you can install third party software not certified by Apple. Such devices include the iPhone, iPod touch, iPad, and second-generation Apple TV. One question rises in my mind that when Apple s system root protections have been greatly enhanced in an effort to make jailbreaks more difficult, then whats the whole story behind the unexpectedly release of this jailbreak tool? STEPS TO JAILBREAK iOS 7.1 & iOS 7.1.1 The installation process of the isn't as simple as the previous jailbreak, but you can follow this Reddit thread: Make sure you have iTunes installed. Edit your iPhone's date to June 2, 2014 Open the PanGu.exe file Click the black button to the right (also UNCHECK THE CHECKMARK where you see random characters and the "PP") As soon as the "brush stroke" loading bar fills to 20%, the PanGu app will appear on your phone Tap it Select Continue It will fill the loading brush stroke until 80% and your iTunes will open (it will only open IF you have iTunesHelper.exe on your Windows Taskbar) Close iTunes When it opens again, wait for the brush stroke to complete to 100% Your device will reboot once more The process will be finished 100% The PanGu app will be replaced with Cydia Do your usual stuff by opening Cydia and continue with what you want to install by then. For precautionary measures, install Complete PPSync Remover (on http://cydia.angelxwind.net repo) because even though you uncheck the "PP" on step 4, it installs it anyway (internally without the app showing) COMPATIBLE DEVICES This Untethered Jailbreak is compatible with following devices running iOS 7.1-iOS 7.1.1: iPhone 5s iPod touch 5G CONTROVERSY OF STOLEN JAILBREAK EXPLOIT It's worth noting that the jailbreak is available from a new team and the said hack is the first from the team. The controversy behind the sudden release of the jailbreak apparently came from one of the exploits used by a security expert and known jailbreaker Stefan Esser, aka i0n1c, who show off the method to jailbreak the iOS 7.1.1 using iPhone 5C during his training session. The people behind it reportedly took this training session given by Esser and allegedly exposed his exploit in the market. Esser expressed his disappointment over the adoption of his exploit via his twitter account, and later Esser even called the Pangu team members "thieves" and wished "everyone of my followers who installed Pangu much fun with malware from China." The jailbreak tool ( download here ) apparently installs the most popular third-party app installer Cydia, but also throws in a Chinese store with apps unsanctioned by Apple.
