Apple Takes Further Steps to Block the Evasi0n Jailbreak in iOS 7.1 Beta 5

Posted February 4, 2014 at 7:43pm by iClarified
Apple has taken further steps to block the evasi0n jailbreak in iOS 7.1 beta 5, reports iH8sn0w.

The fourth beta of iOS 7.1 blocked the kernel exploit used by the evasi0n jailbreak. The just released fifth beta of iOS 7.1 takes things a step further and pathes the AFC sandbox escape as well.

evasi0n7's afc sandbox escape is patched in 7.1b5 too.


afc refuses to bind to a specific port now (when running as mobile).

It's unclear if the evad3rs have any unreleased exploits that could work for iOS 7.1 but of course that information won't be released until after iOS 7.1 is officially available to the public.

Please follow iClarified on Twitter, Facebook, or RSS for updates as they become available. You can learn how to jailbreak your device by visiting the iClarified Jailbreak Wizard.

Without jail break where would apple get iOS ideas from? I still think in 10 years all os will be homogenized or at least smartphone is not the prevalent daily device.

iOS is only better than Android when it can be jailbroken. Apple should work harder on improving it's DRM system for apps, not impeding the creativity of tweak developers. How many iOS upgrade "features" would be lost if no iPhones were jailbroken?

Apple is not doing this to block jailbreakers. They are patching SIGNIFICANT security holes that the dev team has found. They obviously cannot ignore such security issues.
