Hacker winocm has posted screenshots revealing that iOS 6.1.4 has finally been jailbroken.
The screenshots show that winocm’s jailbreak meant he could run his iPhone 5 on both AT&T and Verizon’s networks, using Cydia on both. It’s been a long time since we heard major jailbreak news, with the last piece of news coming with Evasi0n, which allowed the hacking of all iOS devices from iOS 6 to 6.1.2.
Whilst this would have usually been a very significant breakthrough, the news comes just a week an a half before iOS 7 is made available to public, following several months of rigorous beta testing. With that in mind, it’s hardly likely that this will become a widely used hack, if it’s even released to the public at all that is…
According to reports, this particular breakthrough won’t have any effect on an iOS 7 jailbreak. With iOS 7′s refreshed look, it may well be the case that fewer people are inclined to attempt jailbreaking their device because of the software’s excellent range of new features. In terms of the iPhone 5S, Cult of Mac has estimated that this could take 189 days, but again, this is incumbent on alterations that Apple make to its devices and software prior to their official release!
