iOS 9 Has Been Jailbroken! [Video]

Posted by · 16853 views · Translate

iH8sn0w, the hacker behind sn0wbreeze and iFaith, has posted a video demonstrating an untethered jailbreak of iOS 9. Apple just posted the GM Seed of iOS 9 to developers so it's unlikely that anything will be changed before its public release.

Poking into iOS 9 is fun. A little annoyed at some new things. But very surprised at how similar it is to iOS 8 internally.

Worth noting, iOS 9+ arm64 iDevices now enforce a checksum on __TEXT/DATA.const regions of the kernel through the use of TrustZone. Modifying said sections will cause the device to panic (either at kernel or EL3 will force a reboot if the kernel refused to gracefully panic). Essentially, it's KPP (Kernel Patch Protection). You can race it though if you want to play with things. Just be quick! ;P

Also, there should technically now be two additional partitions (baseband_data [s1s3] and logs [s1s4]) but didn't really bother with those as they weren't critical.

No word yet on whether he plans to release his jailbreak but you can follow iClarified on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, or RSS for updates.

To anyone who says jailbreak is dead.....try downloading a zip file from mobile safari and then try to unzip it......betcha can't. Jailbroken tweaks allow you to do that. Until an app like iFile hits App jailbreaking...always

iH8sn0w has his own iBoot exploit that he has never released, which allows him to jailbreak any version of iOS...UNTETHERED. BootROM exploits are the most powerful, and are what allowed things like baseband flashes, restores without iTunes (Redsn0w) and custom boot images to work. That said, this douchebag always taunts everyone with his exploit, but never releases it. He hasn't released shit since the iOS 6 p0s1xpwn untether, and he won't. He doesn't contribute anything to the jailbreak community besides these annoying "proof of concept" videos that are just meant to taunt and remind us that his exploit still works, and that he still exists. Ok..we get it iH8sn0w. Your old exploit still hasn't been patched, and you're still a douchebag. Next article, please?

Honestly, I trust iH8Sn0w more than taig, pangu or PP
