Browser-Based Jailbreak Killed in Latest iOS 10

Popular Italian hacker Luca Todesco’s browser-based jailbreak for iOS 9.3.2 was a very much conversed topic for last month, but as he predicted the important exploit he has used in this jailbreak development is no longer useful. Apple has tightened the security features of latest iOS 10 by closing the security holes, and that includes the powerful “0-exploit” what Luca calls “GasGauge” which was used for the browser-based jailbreak development. Even though there isn’t much revealed about iOS 10 security setting, this is a clue of a tight, protected iOS 10 software version which could be a revolutionary topic for jailbreak crowd.

Browser-based jailbreak for iOS 9.3.2

Browser based jailbreak for iOS 9.3.2 launched in May was an extremely interesting work by famous Italian hacker which was a most discussed topic for the last month. It has proven iOS 9.3.2 jailbreak and successful Cydia install with the process at a time jailbreak possibilities were uncertain on iOS 9 recent versions, so it has much gossiped even though he is not ready for a tool release. At the time he came with the release, he has kept the exploits for him, but now he has made it known to the public knowing latest iOS 10 comes closes with the specific exploit.

Finding an Exploit is tough, as experiments need resources. So he has made the 0-exploit he found with iOS 9.3.2 and which also relates to iOS 9.3.3 to public knowing it is closed in latest iOS 10, and allowing anyone who could get used it to develop a jailbreak tool to match with iOS 9.3.2 or iOS 9.3.3. Currently iOS 9.1 is the latest jailbreak available which is anyway not compatible with iOS 9.2 and above versions.

Will 0-exploit lead a public jailbreak?

At the moment no one knows what jailbreak developers are in planning, but Luca hopes someone to try with the exploit he revealed to the public which was powerful and successful to make a browser-based jailbreak for iOS 9.3.2. So let us keep hopes for working tool release to come with the solution of iOS 9.3.2 – iOS 9.3.3 jailbreak. In that way Cydia fans on iOS 9.3.2-iOS 9.3.3 can still have hopes on a compatible jailbreak release to Cydia install.

iOS 10 Jailbreak

Latest iOS 10 comes with heavy security improvements and that proves with today’s reveals, so it will definitely be a tougher job for jailbreak developers to work on iOS 10 jailbreak, as Apple will have tightened iOS 10 security walls.

In addition to that there aren’t much revealed about latest iOS 10 security even though a lot of concern has won by feature enhancements, so anyway there isn’t enough space for Pangu, TaiG or any other to start with iOS 10 jailbreak, and from July onwards it will be changed as iOS 10 public beta is confirmed to release. So keeping iOS 10 jailbreak and Cydia install aside until then, let us see whether we can expect a public jailbreak release for iOS 9 recent versions soon, so keep reading to grab all latest updates.
