iBoot Source Code for iPhone Leaked

Apple source code for iBoot, the part of iOS that ensures a trusted boot of the iPhone's operating system, has purportedly been leaked.

The code indicates it's for iOS 9, which is now two generations old, but portions of it are likely to still be used in iOS 11, reports Motherboard.

“This is the biggest leak in history,” says Jonathan Levin, the developer behind the LiberiOS and LiberTV jailbreaks. “It’s a huge deal.”

In a tweet, Levin also noted that "The leaked sources of #iboot (along with the arm64 #xnu branch which AAPL just.. released) bring us closer to a truly liberated #iOS booted on generic arm boards and/or emulator! The road is still long, but it got considerably shorter!"

Apple has issued a DMCA takedown notice for the code and Github has disabled the repository that was hosting it; however, it's already out there. Security researchers will be able to use it to find vulnerabilities which could compromise a device or possibly contribute to a jailbreak.

If you are not tech-savvy enough to find it by yourself, how on earth do you think you will be able to "find something" in the code?

Oh man... Hope this leak can yield results in the way of low-level exploits, as Geohotz did way back in time. An iBoot JB cannot be stoped with iOS updates, only hardware upgrades ;)
