A Jailbreak for iOS 10.1.1 and the iPhone 7 is Very Likely on the Way!

A Jailbreak for iOS 10.1.1 and the iPhone 7 is Very Likely on the Way!

Posted December 15, 2016 at 8:40pm by iClarified
Luca Todesco has announced that he will very likely release a jailbreak for iOS 10.1.1 that will work on the iPhone 7!

The jailbreak will use a Kernel and Root exploit just released by Project Zero Team.

This morning Todesco tweeted, "There is a high chance I will take up whatever project 0 drops and write a full jailbreak on top of it. stay on 10.1.1, especially on i7"

He followed up, noting that "what I will be doing is provide a patch on top of Ian’s code that removes his post-exploitation stuff"

Additionally, Todesco indicated that his code will not be opensourced and will very difficult to reverse.

"I will not be opensourcing that and it will be heavily obfuscated. You’re not losing anything: the code is basically unreadable lol."

Todesco has successfully jailbroken the iPhone 7 already. He has demonstrated a jailbreak of the device on iOS 10.0.1 and iOS 10.1.1.

If you are still on iOS 10.1.1 we recommend staying on this firmware if you want to jailbreak in the near future.

We all know what side of the tracks you grew up (and live) on. And it's not pretty.

What we need to talk about here is whether you should either choose to lose your current 9.3.3 jailbreak or update to 10.1.1 and lose jailbreak before signing window closes all based on Luca's "possible" jailbreak tool.....Trolls need to go away please don't got time for this.

As it stands now, what we have here is full write access to everything under the /var directory. This gives the smart people a lot of access to information that was previously locked away. A person now has access to all the settings files on their phone. This is powerful in itself. If a jailbreak does not come from the current exploit, I believe there will be a lot of useful desktop utilities to hack and modify your phone using the exploit I've even managed to prevent the 10.2 update appearing on my iPhone, so I'm safe from a 10.2 update (note that I can undo the change quite easily). So this is useful, very useful. I recommend updating to 10.1.1 as no matter what comes out of the work people are doing, good things will happen.

Who gives a crap about a jailbreak? It is such an outdated idea.

Well, we'll see. I hope you are right but recent events proved there is no public JB anymore.
Kornmehl - December 16, 2016 at 2:24am
If you replace the words 'very likely' with 'possibly,' then the headline is accurate. Of course, we always knew that a jailbreak relate may be possible, so it really isn't news.
KevinChizzle - December 15, 2016 at 11:05pm
Just don't update ur iOS 10 higher (>) 10.1.1. If exploit works on 10.1.1, then it's likely that it works on previous versions of iOS 10. No guarantees, but may as well update to 10.1.1 since ur not JB on iOS 10.x anyways..but don't lose iOS 9 JB if u have it already (1 bird secured in hand is worth more than the chance for 2 birds in tree/bush :)

People this is just a rumor, nothing official so don't do anything stupid yet

What this almost certainly means is that iOS 10.2 broke the exploit that he has been keeping private for oh so long. So don't expect anything from him for 10.2
curtixman - December 16, 2016 at 10:14am
It's already been disclosed by the community that many of the exploits dependent for a jailbreak were patched in iOS 10.2. The likelihood is that he sod his and since this jailbreak is already publicly published he may as well build a user friendly jailbreak tool to publicly release. I would say that it's highly likely he will release something. If it will actually support the i7 or not is another story. Maybe. Maybe not.

Better release it quick so we can use it while Apple still signing 10.1.1
Powers - December 15, 2016 at 8:58pm
is apple still signing 10.1.1 right now? I'm still on iOS 8.
Gabe - December 15, 2016 at 8:57pm
Yeah that's cool. How about make it for the current update tho.
stevenlacross - December 15, 2016 at 9:02pm
Yeah, he should make it work on iOS 10.0.0 - 10.2.0 and if Apple comes out with 10.2.1 then make it work with that as well
Héctor - December 15, 2016 at 8:48pm
I'm on 10.0.1. iPhone 6s. Should I update?
odedoo1 - December 15, 2016 at 9:08pm
And you got another problem you got a 6S meaning battery draining on iOS 10.1.1
Héctor - December 15, 2016 at 9:23pm

RWR - December 16, 2016 at 6:23am

curtixman - December 16, 2016 at 10:16am
