As we mentioned iOS 8.4 is currently available as in beta. iOS 8.4 beta 1, beta 2, beta 3 and beta 2 which are updated beta versions among Apple’s iOS 8.4 beta collection. Famous hacker and jailbreak researcher Stefan Essar, commonly known as iOn1c managed to jailbreak iOS 8.4 and he posted a video preview to show iPhone 6 plus running on iOS 8.4 beta 1. As some sources are reporting that iOn1c has jailbroken by iOn1c, but after refer that video preview we seemed that actually it is not a video demo, nothing any step tutorial. It shows only latest beta release.
In nearly day Apple has confirmed their next beta version of iOS 8.4 beta 4 to all registered developers from Apple Dev Center. After that all Apple fellows clustered around the latest beta version and they try to find out their expectant features via iOS 8.4 beta 4. Especially Apple included revamped music app improvements via iOS 8.4 beta. Among the all iOS 8.4 beta collection which are already released, iOS 8.4 beta 1 is currently jailbroken according to iOn1c shown.
As some report they always indicated that iOS 8.4 will jailbreak by iOn1c. But we cannot say it in sure. Although I think actually they could not jailbreak iOS 8.4 beta 1, because usually every jailbreak release, the team release whole information about that jailbreak like about tool, jailbreak steps, troubleshooting, device / firmware compatibitiy and etc. But Stefan Essar not revealed those most important information yet. It did not mean that they failed or we ignore their video preview. However we expect iOS 8.4 jailbreak so soon after confirm iOS 8.4 to public.
Earlier of iOS 8.4 jailbreak announce, reporters are tagged some information for cydia lovers like iOS 8.4 jailbreak device compatibility. iOS 8.4 jailbreak is compatible with all iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. As rumours,
- iPhone 6, iPhone 6 plus, iPhone 5, iPhone 5c, iPhone 4s, iPhone 5s
- iPad 4, iPad 3, iPad 2, iPad mini 1, iPad mini 2, iPad mini 3, iPad Air 1, iPad Air 2
- iPod touch 5G
Follow this video and think twice | iOS 8.4 beta 1 jailbroken by iOn1c
Stefan Essar did not forget to state a description alongside the video preview.
“Hi fellow netizens,
Today I am delighted to share this video of a proof of concept iOS 8.4-beta 1 jailbreak that I was working on the last 4 days. Of course this video will trigger haters all over the jailbreaking scene that for some reason believe they can decide what a person is allowed to do or not do with their work. Haters gonna hate. So just ignore the haters and never let them tell you what you have to do. In that regard never let anyone bully you and stop you from showing your own hard work. Peace!
The major vulnerability used in here was found right after the SyScan 2015 security conference when I was relaxing in Singapore from several weeks of training and conferences. The vulnerability itself is however not new to iOS. Instead it is inside the code virtually forever. But the code of this jailbreak has nothing at all to do with the previous CyberElevat0r for iOS 7.1.1 – it does not share a single line of code.
