Very surprising to hear but true is that, the new released iOS 8.4 beta of Apple is jailbroken by a hacker, who is very well-known.
Yes, it is the truth. Apple has just released the new version of iOS 8.4 in last week and already it is jailbroken by a well-known hacker, Stefan Esser. In the community, he is known in the name “i0n1c”.
i0n1c also have shared a proof video, which title is, “iOS 8.4 Beta 1 Jailbreak Preview 1“.
The video shows that, a model of iPhone6 plus, which runs on the model iPhone7.1, with power of iOS 8.4 Beta 1. Home screen shows the jailbroken with the Cydia icon.
However, for proving the iOS 8.4 Beta 1 jailbreak, the hacker showed the app of Apple Watch, The new Music app, Emoji Keyboard new version, on time of giving the demonstration of the video.
The hacker’s video demonstration can prove the jailbreak of iOS 8.4 Beta 1. But it don’t give an iOS jailbreak tools or any firmware for public.
It seems a great news for the jailbreakers, but really it is not totally great news.
Because, yet now i0n1c has released any tool for iOS jailbreak of iOS 8.4 beta 1. And it is not declared to be released also. So no need to be excited about iOS jailbreak.
i0n1c contributes the developments of iOS untethered jailbreak tools in previous, and moreover, this is his personal video. It is a matter to be proud of him.

It is not new to discover the vulnerability on iOS of Apple. i0n1c said, “Instead, it is inside the code virtually forever”. It is quite interesting that, new code is not common with iOS 7.1.1CyberElevator.
i0n1c has also posted a note with the video. The note is like this:
“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….I am not showing persistence or an untether at the moment because something is broken with it. But hey this is just a first proof of concept.”
The untethered iOS jailbreak means the jailbreak of iOS device, for which. There needs no reboot connection with any external devices to execute the commands on device.
It is not a matter that, he has not released any iOS jailbreak tool for the 8.4 Beta 1. We are hopeful to PanGu or TaiG team to finding the iOS exploits.
So keep a careful eye on the teams, if you are loved with Jailbreaking of your iPhones.
