We have very good news about iOS 8 Jailbreak. Jailbreak developer iH8sn0w said that he had found a vulnerability iBoot-level, which allows to produce software tools to jailbreak the device with a processor A5 (X). A5 chip used in smartphones iPhone 4s, iPad 2, Apple TV 3G, iPod touch 5G and iPad mini, processor A5X – in the iPad 3.
Previous iBoot- level vulnerability in the iPhone and iPad with the A4 processor found a few years ago, the hacker Geohot. Any updates to the operating system from Apple can not block based on this vulnerability tools for jailbreak – a result, users are so-called untethered jailbreak. Now, jailbreak developers have found a low-level “hole” security chip A5/A5X.
iH8sn0w has no plans to use his discovery to create exploits and keep it for next releases iOS 8. According to him , the discovery of iBoot- A5/A5X vulnerability opens the possibility of “eternal” jailbreak for devices with processors A6/A7.
Based on vulnerability iBoot program no less effective than the exploits bootrom- described jailbreak developer. With proper use of “hole” allows you to create the untethered for any version of the operating system iOS 8 and iOS 9. In addition, it simplifies the task of finding vulnerabilities in the new firmware for the iPhone and iPad.
