Watch out for this frighteningly smart malware that’s infected over 75,000 jailbroken iPhones

The malware protection that comes with Apple’s walled-off garden is only so good as long as you stay in that confined space, as otherwise hackers will be able to attack you with malicious programs. Specifically, jailbroken iPhones, which can install any iOS app whether it’s approved by Apple or not, are obviously susceptible to malware attacks, and a Virus Bulletin advisory notice details one such malicious program that has infected at least 75,000 iOS devices to date.

Pangu iOS 7.1.2 Untethered Jailbreak

The latest untethered jailbreak is already compatible with iOS 7.1.2

The latest untethered jailbreak is already compatible with iOS 7.1.2

Just over an hour after Apple seeded iOS 7.1.2 to the public, 9to5Mac confirmed that the Pangu untethered jailbreak originally released for iOS 7.1.1 still works on iOS devices. The jailbreak was released after Apple had already begun seeding the 7.1.1 update to carriers, so the chance that the company would have been able to combat a jailbreak in the interim was unlikely anyway.

11 iOS 8 features Apple ‘stole’ from jailbreak apps

Some of the iOS 8 features Apple introduced this week aren’t completely new smartphone or tablet features the company has come up with. Similar software abilities have existed on other platforms including Android, but also on iOS, thanks to apps that were not allowed in the App Store and found a second life on jailbroken devices, before Apple found a way to implement them according to its own standards.

Here’s what the iOS 7.1.1 jailbreak looks like on an iPhone 5s

Jailbreaks have been hard to come by during the latest round of iOS updates, but it appears that hackers are on to something with iOS 7.1.1.

Now, thanks to Twitter user @blue9057, we have video proof another private jailbreak running on Apple’s flagship iPhone 5s as well. More →

Untethered iOS 7.1.1 jailbreak shown for first time on a new iPhone

When it released iOS 7.1, Apple thanked the hackers that had jailbroken iOS 7.0, therefore allowing it to patch several security exploits. Since then, no iOS 7.1 version has been successfully jailbroken – at least on 2013 devices. However, it looks like an untethered iOS 7.1.1 jailbreak is possible, with two independent sources confirming it. More →

Awesome iOS jailbreak app brings OS X features to iPad

Even though Apple thinks unifying the iOS and OS X universes — in a similar manner to Microsoft’s “no-compromise” Windows approach — would be a waste of energy, the two operating systems have various things in common, allowing users to somewhat merge their iPhone/iPad and Mac universes. However, some developers have actually worked on making the two operating systems more similar, iTwe4kz revealed on YouTube. More →

iOS 7.1 has already been jailbroken… sort of

Apple thanking the jailbreak community for finding vulnerabilities in iOS 7, which the company was then able to patch, was a clear sign that an iOS 7.1 jailbreak will take its time to arrive. However, a hacker managed to already jailbreak Apple’s newest iOS version, RedmondPie reports, although, it’s not necessarily great news for jailbreakers. More →

iOS 7 Jailbreak App

This live weather icon for iOS 7 could keep you dry on a rainy day

This live weather icon for iOS 7 could keep you dry on a rainy day

One of the most underutilized features of the iOS platform is the ability to update app icons in real time. The clock icon slowly ticks away the hours, the calendar icon flips through the days, but almost everything else remains stagnant on the screens of our iPhones and iPads. If you’d like a more lively home screen, it will take a little bit of work, but it might be worth the effort. AppAdvice noticed on Thursday that Hamza Sood has put together a small tweak called LiveWeatherIcon for jailbroken iOS 7 devices that will bring the icon of the official Weather app to life, updating in real time with the temperature and current weather conditions. How did Apple not beat Sood to such an obvious modification? The world may never know. LiveWeatherIcon is now available on the Cydia Store for $1.00.

iOS 7 Jailbreak Evasi0n

iOS 7 jailbreakers drop controversial Chinese app store following user backlash

iOS 7 jailbreakers drop controversial Chinese app store following user backlash

It has been a long and difficult wait for gadget enthusiasts eager to jailbreak the latest version of Apple’s mobile platform but once an iOS 7 jailbreak was finally released, drama instantly ensued. A team of iOS hackers knows as evad3rs released their iOS 7 jailbreak tool Evasi0n7 just before Christmas and people were elated. It wasn’t long before a discovery was made, though: the tool installed a seemingly shady app store called “Taig” on devices belonging to Chinese users. There were many unknowns surrounding this unofficial app store and users were cautioned not to jailbreak until questions were answered. Things seemed to simmer down when well-known hacker Geohot gave Evasi0n7 his stamp of approval, but worries that private user data was being transmitted by Taig continued. When Taig released its own version of the Evasi0n7 jailbreak software, however, that was apparently the last straw for the evad3rs — the group announced in a public letter on Christmas Day that it has ended its relationship with Taig and removed the store from its jailbreak software. The group also responded to rumors that it was paid $1 million to include the Taig app store in its initial iOS 7 jailbreak, noting that it has “refused all monies from Taig.”
