Twitter use axi0mX posted about how a new iOS exploit called checkm8 could lead to a “permanent unpatchable bootrom exploit” for iPhone 4s to iPhone X.
What I am releasing today is not a full jailbreak with Cydia, just an exploit. Researchers and developers can use it to dump SecureROM, decrypt keybags with AES engine, and demote the device to enable JTAG. You still need additional hardware and software to use JTAG.
I’m sure governments around the world will be in touch.
Apple accidentally unpatched a vulnerability first patched in iOS 12.3, and researchers used it to create an iOS 12.4 jailbreak.
iPhone jailbreaks are almost as old as, well, the iPhone. Apple Watch jailbreaks, however, haven’t been a thing until now. A developer going by the name Tihmstar on GitHub is sharing an Apple Watch jailbreak dubbed jelbrekTime for Apple Watch Series 3 running watchOS 4.1. The hack isn’t really useful for average users, but it does give developers a deeper look under the hood, so to speak, which could be helpful for the apps they’re developing. OK developers, start making us some crazy-cool watch faces.
Apple released iOS 9.3.4 on Thursday, only a couple weeks after rolling out iOS 9.3.3. This surprise update shuts down the Pangu jailbreak, and the credit card and PayPal security breaches that came along with it.
