Untethered Jailbreak iOS 8


Untethered Jailbreak iOS 8, iOS Jailbreak developers Steven De Franco, popularly known by his twitter name @iH8Sn0w, has been able to work towards untethering iOS 8 jailbreak for Apple A5 devices. An untethered jailbreak enables the user to turn the device on without having to reboot using an external device such as a computer. This is a time-consuming process which demands years of experience and a lot of reverse engineering. iH8Sn0w has been able to achieve iBoot code execution on the A5 chip devices. A5 chip includes iPad 2, iPad mini, iPhone 4S, iPod Touch 5th generation and Apple TV 3rd generation.


In the jailbreak world, the Bootrom exploit developed for A4 devices is the most noteworthy code that runs on an Apple device, after which comes the iBoot exploit. The iBoot exploit provides access to iBoot and the filesystem. An A5 device user could also possibly gain lifetime jailbreak access by using iBoot exploit.

Another jailbreak hacker Winocm, known as P0sixspwn, has managed to decrypt the iBoot exploit in iPhone 5s, which uses the A7 chip processor. At present, this new discovery is not of much use because, though A5 devices support the latest iOS 8 version, there are number of inconveniences and performance issues faced by its users A5 device owners have begun to downgrade their iOS to older versions such as iOS 7.1 due to some serious issues in the working of iOS 8.

Currently, the Pangu jailbreak team and Evad3rs are working towards creating an untethered iOS 8 jailbreak. Users can expect its release in the near future. Evad3rd is a jailbreak team which released evasion7 to jailbreak those devices that run on iOS7. As the gadget freaks move on to newer Apple devices, the latest jailbreak utilities are expected to gain more takers.
