Member of Fried Apple team open-sources its Patchfinder jailbreak. Here’s how you can use it on your iPhone, iPad and iPod.
Veteran pirate and Fried Apple team co-founder Vladimir Putin alias in7egral has its open-source 64-bit jailbreak PatchFinder. It is compatible with all devices using the 64-bit processors AArch64.
This tool can analyze the iOS firmware core and determine the necessary compensation. Once you know the settlement, you can then apply the jailbreak patches to a specific version of the firmware.
How it works
A brief explanation of how this utility works:
- Analyze iOS kernel
- Get offsets
- Apply jailbreak exploits
It can be easily achieved as an untethered iOS 9.3.5 / 8.4.1 jailbreak now that we have access to PatchFinder. However, we still have someone to package with the bypass KPP Yalu and other public exploits.
The main contributor is Vladimir, but it also contains code by Luca Todesco and Pangu team. You will find this tool on the Github repository of Vladimir.
Remember, this is supposed to be used by the jailbreak developers and experts. If you do not know what the compensation is, you have to keep your hands on this tool.
Member of the team Vladimir explains why this happened.
1. Random Restarts
First, their jailbreak tool has never been quite stable to be of any consequence. Random reboots and freezes a strongly impact the ability of a machine to be installed on the primary user of a device.
2. Code under Copyright
Second, the Fried jailbreak Apple team uses the system that belongs to other developers and teams Dev.
Had they released to the public, they could have faced flak, respective copyright owners.
3. Lack of time
Finally, which retained the release of a jailbreak was the lack of time. Members of the AFL team are professional researcher’s security and most likely work for a security company.
Therefore, they have never time to set up a website and provide download links. Vladimir also said they could not provide bug fixes and the subsequent support that must occur after public release.
