Developers of unofficial version of the operating system reported successful hacking attempt.
According to the hacker group «evad3rs» on Twitter, experts in hacking iOS successfully conducted the first test to compromise iOS 6.1.
«IOS 6.1, as it turned out, is vulnerable to the exploits that we planned to use” – results from the notice of hackers.
Recall that a few days earlier, the «evad3rs», including a security researcher, hiding under the alias Pod2g, reported on Twitter a willingness to initiate the development of untethered jailbreak after the official release of the OS from Apple.
It should also be noted that Pod2g has already participated in the development of previous versions of jailbreaking and has exceptional experience in this work. At present this work is assisted by such famous hackers as planetbeing, MuscleNerd, and pimskeks.
Finally evad3rs also noted that, most of all, untethered jailbreak for iOS 6.1 will be released on February 3. You can install it on all iOS devices except for Apple TV third generation.
