iOS 7.1 Jailbreak Released

One day after Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) rolled out the iOS 7.1 firmware update to the public on Friday, Jailbreakmenow, the iOS hackers team that created the popular jailbreakme untethered jailbreak tool, released an updated package of their jailbreak software, Jailbreakmenow, bringing it to version 1.0.6 to support the latest iOS update.

Last week, Apple released the iOS 7.1 update containing a bug fix for SSL connection verification for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. Following the release of the new firmware, jailbreak users were advised by renowned iOS hacker MuscleNerd to stay away from the update until jailbreakme is updated to support the new iOS version.

However, on Saturday, the jailbreakme 1.0.6 was released by Jailbreakmenow with support for iOS 7.1. Because the new jailbreakme version is optimized for iOS 7.1, which includes a major security flaw in the OS, users are recommended to update to the latest firmware before using jailbreakme 1.0.6 to jailbreak their device.

Points To Note

- Supported firmware: iOS 7.0, 7.0.1, 7.0.2, 7.0.3, 7.0.4, 7.0.5, 7.0.6, 7.1

- Supported devices: All iPhone, iPod touch, iPad and iPad mini models running iOS 7.0 through 7.0.6.

- System requirements: MacOSX 10.7/10.8/10.9 or Windows (XP minimum)

- Ensure you have the latest version of iTunes installed in the computer.

- Back-up your device using iTunes (or iCloud) before using jailbreakme.

- If you have back-up passwords in iTunes, disable them for now. After doing so, iTunes makes a brand new back-up. Wait for that back-up to complete before proceeding. You can re-enable the back-up password after jailbreaking.

- Disable the lock passcode of your iOS device before using jailbreakme.

- Avoid all iOS- and iTunes-related tasks until after the jailbreak.
