Geohot Has Another Untethered Jailbreak Exploit Up His Sleeve For Next Gen iOS Devices
Come to find out our boy Geohot has another untethered jailbreak exploit that he held back from Limera1n to prevent Apple from learning about it.
Incase you were wondering why Geohot used a userland exploit from Comex to make Limera1n untethered, it was because he did not wanted to waste his untethered version of bootrom exploit.
Both Comex and MuscleNerd has confirmed that Geohot has in his possession a new untethered bootrom level exploit which can be used to pwn future iOS devices like iPhone 5 and iPad 2G for life.
The exploit is at the iBoot level and could have been used to make Limera1n untethered; however, Geohot used @comex’s untether for Limera1n so that his exploit could be saved for possible use in the future.
comex: @esemede he would have implemented his own untether, but that would be wasting an exploit
musclenerd: (translating that retweet of @comex: geohot has an iboot-level untethered exploit but held it back to conserve explioits)
What does this all mean? The future hacking/jailbreaking of iOS devices looks very bright.
We now have 2 powerful bootrom exploits one from Geohot and the other by Chronic Dev called SHAtter and along with comex’s mad skills with userland exploits the jailbreaking fun is here to stay.
