iOS 7 JAILBREAK UNTETHERED - NEW EXPLOITS FOR NEW iOS 7 JAILBREAK
The team of hackers that calls themselves the evad3rs say they actually had a full exploit capable of removing all the security restrictions on iOS 6.1 devices working more than a month ago, but chose not to release it until they could replace many of the components of the hack with less valuable exploits, reserving the more powerful techniques for future projects.
Even if we could only find another one or two more [bugs], we’d still have at least one more jailbreak left in us,” planetbeing. “It’s getting harder. But there are still a lot of vulnerabilities left.”
When it was all said and done, David Wang (aka planetbeing) says that the evad3rs were able to swap out all of their major exploits with lower-value hacks—except for one bug used to execute code in the iOS device kernel.
Wang says that while the exploits it has in reserve don’t necessarily add up to a jailbreak, he feels confident that with more research, they’ll be able to hack the next version of iOS—something folks have become skeptical about.
