Apple Is Beta-Testing A Fix For Evasi0n Jailbreak

Postby Walter White » Mon Feb 25, 2013 11:44 am

Looks like Apple is about to lay the smack down on jailbreaks. Don't be updating your phone if you have it jailbroken.

All good jailbreaks must come to an end.

Late last week Apple released an update for iOS to developers in beta that prevents the use of the popular jailbreak software evasi0n, according to one of evasi0n’s creators who tested the patch over the weekend, David Wang.

Wang tells me that he’s analyzed the 6.1.3 beta 2 update and found that it patches at least one of the five bugs the jailbreak exploits, namely a flaw in the operating system’s time zone settings. The beta update likely signals the end of using evasi0n to hack new or updated devices after the update is released to users, says Wang, who says he’s still testing the patch to see which other vulnerabilities exploited by the jailbreak might no longer exist in the new operating system....
