LiberiOS jailbreak for iOS 11 is here but you should wait

Jailbreakig iOS devices has always been a hot topic, much more than rooting in the Android world. Lately, however, it has become even more heated because of iOS 11. Never mind the drama surrounding Cydia developer Saurik. To date, there is no ready and simple to use jailbreak method for iOS 11, though there is at least one proof-of-concept based on a new bug discovery tool developed by Ian Beer from Google Project Zero. And while this new LiberiOS jailbreak looks promising, it is something only the most daring and most skilled of jailbreakers should attempt to use.

Jailbreaking on iOS and rooting on Android aren’t as big as they were years ago but communities around them still do exist.

iOS 11.2.1 jailbreak on iPhone X revealed by Alibaba researchers

Last week, Apple released the iOS 11.2.1 update, addressing a number of software bugs for iPhone and iPad owners.

New iPhone jailbreak tool comes from Google

New iPhone jailbreak tool comes from Google

Jailbreaking iPhones and iPads have somewhat fallen out of fashion because of two things. One is that Apple has addressed some of the pain points that previously made jailbreaking ideal, or even necessary. The second is that each new update made it harder and harder to find ways to jailbreak iOS. Some seem to have even given up on jailbreaking because of the latter. Hope, however, springs eternal with a new tool that could be the gateway to jailbreaking iPhones today and tomorrow. And, somewhat ironically, the tool comes from within Google HQ.

Two of three Cydia jailbreaking app sources have shut down

Two of three Cydia jailbreaking app sources have shut down

Once upon a time, jailbreaking an iPhone or iPad was really the only way for users to truly get the best experience out of their expensive devices. Fast-forward 10 years later, jailbreaking iOS devices feels almost like a distant memory. That memory might be fast fading too, as ModMy and ZodTTD/MacCiti shut down, leaving BigBoss as the last remaining major source of apps, themes, and files for jailbroken iPhones and iPads. This, in turn, could mark the slow decline and decay of the jailbreaking community.

iPhone 7 claimed to have been jailbroken in just 24 hours

iPhone 7 claimed to have been jailbroken in just 24 hours

Jailbreaking iPhones is like a game of cat and mouse. Each new update, especially major ones, patch up holes and flaws that jailbreakers use to gain full access to the device and the OS. So, naturally, when the iPhone 7 came out with iOS 10, the belief was that it would be considerably harder to pry open. Harder? Yes. Considerably? Apparently not, as a certain 19 year old hacker by the name of Luca Todesco claims he was able to jailbreak the iPhone 7 in just 24 hours. Unfortunately for the jailbreaking community, he isn’t sharing it just yet.

iOS 9.3.4 update credits Team Pangu for closing jailbreak hole

The irony of Apple's latest security bulletin is perhaps not lost on the jailbreaking community. A mere days after the said community rejoiced over the release of a jailbreak tool for the current iOS 9.3.3, Apple releases an iOS 9.4.4 update that, though not explicitly saying so, practically plugs up the exploit used to jailbreak the iPhone. As if adding insult to injury, the bulletin specifically names Team Pangu, the popular hacking team devoted to jailbreaking iOS.

Jailbreaking iOS gets a lot harder with every new release, so when a popular jailbreaking tool like Pangu releases one for the current iOS 9.3.3, there is unsurprisingly no small amount of rejoicing and excitement around it. Unfortunately, it seems that the euphoria was premature, as a number of jailbreakers discovered to their shock that there have been unauthorized accesses to critical private information, like credit cards, PayPal, and Facebook after they have jailbroken their iOS devices using the tool released by Pangu.

iOS 9.1 Jailbreak is here – Some things you need to know [UPDATE]

At one point in the not so distant past, bending over backwards to free an iPhone or iPad from its shackles was the hip thing to do among power users and non-conformists. While it still has a faithful following, jailbreaking iOS devices has fallen slightly out of fashion, partly due to Apple including features once only possible in jailbroken devices. The process of creating jailbreaking tools has also become a lot harder, which is reason enough for fans to celebrate Pangu's release of the latest Jailbreak for iOS 9. But before you go on this daring adventure, here are a few things to keep in mind first.
