Stefan “i0nic” Esser posted on his twitter a picture in response to many exciting question: “Is there a jailbreak for iOS 8.” Provocative image shows that the disposal of tools to jailbreak the iOS firmware. The photo showing a Terminal window, taken on a Mac computer screen, connected to the iPod touch running on iOS 8.
The program is made to connect to the iPod touch via SSH and display a list of folders on your mobile device – Documents, Downloads, Media, and others. This image was the first confirmation that hackers managed to gain root access to the iOS 8.
Recall Tuesday, i0n1c tweeted that iOS 8 beta 1 can be easily hacked using existing techniques. Search specialized in vulnerability and develop fundamentally new exploits…., he wrote on Twitter. According to him, “eight” jailbreak is not a problem, the only thing that may cause problems is compatibility with iOS unofficial applications and the Cydia store .
Observers believe that the jailbreak for iOS 8 will not be available until the final version of iOS 8. For hackers is not appropriate to disclose vulnerabilities of the firmware before Apple releases the final version.
In any case, all the evidence suggests that third-party developers are prepare for the exploit. We will certainly let you know as soon we know more. Stay tuned for updates!
