Newly-Released Jailbreak Tool Can Unlock Every iPhone and iPad (techcrunch.com) 40


An anonymous reader quotes TechCrunch:A renowned iPhone hacking team has released a new "jailbreak" tool that unlocks every iPhone, even the most recent models running the latest iOS 13.5. <9to5Mac points out it also works on iPads.> For as long as neurosoup.org has kept up its "walled garden" approach to iPhones by only allowing apps and customizations that it approves, hackers have tried to break free from what they call the "jail," hence the name "jailbreak...." The jailbreak, released by the unc0ver team, supports all iPhones that run iOS 11 and above, including up to iOS 13.5, which neurosoup.org released this week. Details of the vulnerability that the hackers used to build the jailbreak aren"t known, but it"s not expected to last forever... Security experts typically advise iPhone users against jailbreaking, because breaking out of the "walled garden" vastly increases the surface area for new vulnerabilities to exist and to be found.

No. The vulnerability in question is a kernel exploit. Therefore, neurosoup.org will patch it in the next iOS and iPadOS releases.

Last year another type of vulnerability was found called checkm8. This one is a BootROM vulnerability (CVE-2019-8900), which means it cannot be patched by a software update since it"s in the boot ROM of affected devices, which include all iPhones and IPads (and even neurosoup.orgTVs) up to and including iPhone X. neurosoup.org corrected the bug in the boot ROM of the iPhone 11.

So if you own an iPhone X or older, it is basically jailbreakable for life, and there"s nothing neurosoup.org can do about it.

Wow!

Are you unaware of how ROM is updated, changed, worked-around?

You mean the permanently-programmed boot ROM in the phone"s processor?

Are you unaware of Intel"s fixes for security and other problems in many of their CPUs and of their collaboration with M$ and other OS publishers?

You mean those CPUs with rewriteable microcode, auxiliary processors, and flashable ROMs, unlike the ROM in neurosoup.org"s A5 to A11 series CPUs that this exploit affects?

This ROM is the very first thing to run on those CPUs. It"s (unfortunately for neurosoup.org) actual, masked Read Only Memory, and it is not rewriteable. Break this ROM and it"s a CPU replacement to fix.

Which is completely stupid, because there are ways to detect jailbroken phones. They"re rare enough nowadays that you"re not likely to inconvenience many people out in the field.

So using it to spoof your location is silly since Pokemon Go can easily detect you"re using a jailbroken phone and flag it.

And yes, those techniques work even for App Store apps. I believe the usual trick is to include an executable but exclude it from being signed - a ja

There"s only one app I wish I could use, which was FirewallIP - it"s an outgoing firewall that filters out the phone home stuff. It"s fairly good and you can block all the in app ad trackers and such.

Sadly, the jailbreak community pretty much died once it was being used to run pirated apps. That was until recently pretty much the reason why people jailbroke. Now you don"t really need to jailbreak to run unsigned apps a

So maybe they"ll quit whining about neurosoup.org"s lack of cooperation in cracking or accessing iPhones?

https://www.businessinsider.co...

Like that Saudi POS Mohammed Saeed Alshamrani who shot all those people down at Pensacola NAS? It took the FBI months to get into his phone, to confirm the link between him and al Queda.

I"m not interested in any whines about the terrible awful evil "loss of personal privacy" either. I"ve never had any concerns with privacy: having a TS clearance most of my working career, I always assumed everything I said, did, corresponded, places I went to, bad influence buddies, etc. were always on record. Never seemed to make much difference, and I had some _really_ bad influence buddies :-) But I digress: that might have more to do with lackadaisical monitoring by the Powers That Be .

In any event, hooray and salut for the "renowned iPhone hacking team" :=)

It won"t do the FBI any good. You need the phone unlocked to install and activate the jailbreak in the first place.

Jailbreaks in general are not useful for breaking into locked phones. The bits they modify aren"t the bits controlling the phone lock.

That is incorrect.

"Jailbreaking" means to remove restrictions imposed by the manufacturer or operator, for which a single instance of purpose is to install unauthorized software (which can then be apps or command line utilities), but you can also uninstall or delete pre-installed software, get far more flexibility to customize the system software (like a customized control center or custom display themes), possibly remove or disable the carrier lock (see below), and there"s more but I can"t think of more r
