The latest reports make some people believe that hackers can actually find a way to jailbreak iOS 7.1 even before this next firmware version is out by Apple. You probably know that the famous iPhone maker released its next firmware update iOS 7.0.6 that fixes some problems and supports all the devices supported by iOS 7.
This new update is not a major one. While some users thought it was impossible to jailbreak iOS 7.0.6 coders proved they were wrong as the update to Evasi0n7jailbreak version 1.0.6 is capable of untethering this mobile operating system.
Coders are probably searching for holes in iOS 7.1 betas which actually killed the exploits used in Evasi0n making it currently impossible to successfully jailbreak. With security holes being closed, hackers can find other holes while the Cupertino-based company is working on this major upgrade for its iOS firmware.
How is jailbreaking happening? Hackers change the code and remove some restrictions that allow installing third-party apps, programs, tweaks and more. Apple’s limitations can be customized and users get an opportunity to adjust settings and use things not offered or approved by the official App Store. They can still use it as well along with the Cydia store that has tons of jailbreak applications and games created by hackers.
The Evasi0n creators and other hackers are doing their best to crack iOS 7.1. We don’t know whether their results are successful or not as no information is shared with public yet. It is still possible that the actual untethered jailbreak for iOS 7.1 becomes possible even before this firmware is released publicly.
We are sure that hackers will provide some news, but only after the release. Users have to keep waiting as if the results are reported before the official firmware launch Apple has a chance of blocking the exploits used for the jailbreak.
