As you may know, Apple has ended the party for jailbreakers with the release of iOS 6.1.3. This is pretty much it right? Well, not quite! As we have reported, P0sixninja claims to have found a whole set of vulnerabilities and it is highly likely he will be the one releasing the next jailbreak. However, P0sixninja is not the only person working on the next iOS 6 untethered jailbreak. Planetbeing previously said he and his team has another set of exploits that they are likely to use once Apple patched Evasi0n.
Pod2g just tweeted that he found another exploit today. The tweet goes:
Good news! Found another exploitable use-after-free in WebKit today. It affects production builds of Safari / Chrome and WebKit trunk also.
As you can see, the Evad3rs team is not doing nothing. It is believed they will not release a jailbreak anymore until iOS 7 is released. However, this tweet by Pod2g proves that the Evad3rs team is not about to take a backseat when it comes to the release of the next untethered jailbreak. With P0sixninja back in the scene, this could either mean that he will pull off a GeoHot and release the jailbreak first or he will collaborate with Evad3rs. So, when can we expect the next jailbreak?
While we're not entirely sure with P0sixninja's work, Pod2g said they are not working on iOS 6.1.3, in a follow-up tweet:
we are not working on a 6.1.3 jailbreak, that would be too much efforts for a minimal update. We're waiting for a major release.
On top of that, Planetbeing has tweeted the Evad3rs is waiting for “a major release.” Could it be that the next jailbreak release would be for iOS 7? Keep in mind that WWDC is coming in June and it is likely that a major firmware update will be announced.
With that said, it won't make sense for both P0sixninja and Evad3rs to release the jailbreak for iOS 6.1.3. It simply not worth to lose those hard-earned exploits for an update that barely has any new features or enhancements. At the very least, with both P0sixninja and Evad3rs working on the jailbreak, this definitely counts as a positive development. [via iJailbreak]Contact Us for News Tips, Corrections and Feedback
