As you may have known the Mobile Security Summit (MSS) is ongoing in Beijing, China held by the TaiG team. Famous hackers like @comex, @chronic, @pimskeks @p0sixninja are speaking in turn in the conference. Rumors on Weibo stating that the iOS 8.2 jailbreak tool will be released this afternoon and possibly be around 4pm Beijing Time, as SOME Weibo users claimed under TaiG’s posts on the summit. We have no concrete source to prove that nor did the person explained further on how he got this information. But, it is not non-sense to guess a jailbreak can be released during or after such event. I am rather skeptical on this but super excited as everything can just happen, anytime soon. On the other hand, I would say, as always, why not wait for the next stable release of iOS (8.3 in this case)? Well, at this moment, I can only stay tuned with their official Weibo, keep refreshing for an update from time to time. Let me know what you think about the iOS 8.2 jailbreak. Are you anticipating it? Or are you against it like I am as 8.3 is around the corner? Stay tuned and we will keep you posted. Edited: Another rumor claimed that the tool will be our at BJT 2000HR (GMT 1200HR). Will update when I know more.
Edited #2: The game was over and I guessed it on the wrong side of the coin. There was nothing big really happened as we all hoped. But that’s ok. There were so many speculations out there well before this MSS event for an iOS 8.2 and we were on the the same boat. As I said on Twitter, that’s not the end but the beginning. Stay positive, be confident with the hacker team and hold your faith to them. The jailbreak will come when it is ready and it will be a surprise, as it might be. Just stay with what you have at the moment. Download TinyUmbrella and save your SHSH Blobs as soon as you can so that you may be able to downgrade to a jailbreakable firmwire in the future. And also, hold off a bit for buying an Apple Watch if you are below iOS 8.2 as you don’t have the Apple Watch companion app in the iOS versions.
Well, again, I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of you for staying with me for so long time and wait for a possible jailbreak yesterday. I really enjoy talking with you guys there. I appreciate your support. Stay tuned and I will keep you posted. Be sure to check out my other articles on my blog. Thank you!
