iPhone 5 jailbreak should be pretty easy

0. phoneArena 17 Sep 2011, 12:16 posted on

The Chronic Dev Team has found 5 exploits in the A5 chip which powers the iPad 2 and will be inside the upcoming iPhone 5. This means that a jailbreak should be available for the iPhone 5 pretty quickly after its release...

actually, in national hacking competitions, iOS is always the first 2 go down.. record at 12 seconds start to finish. Android has yet to be hacked in the last 3 or 4 competitions its been in.

Everyone THINKS iOS is more secure, but its not true.

Of course, Google also has a habit of pushing bugfix updates the day before major hacking competitions. So, that's not exactly the best measure.

Good point plus when you read up on it android not getting hacked in those competitions isn't necessarily because or better security. There's a lot more people that work on hacking iOS.

Remix you're giving a half truth here.

4 years of not being hacked means its becoming a "unicorn". Everyone will be aiming for it. Hacking iOS is old hat as they do it every time. Android is the most popular and the most open OS by far. The fact that google has kept it hack free should speak volumes about its security.

If google is actually sending out patches the day before the competition and keeping it safe from exploits, then kudos to them. You have to ask why iOS isnt getting the same treatment.

well, that just means google is taking care of their products and finding the flaws before the hackers can. As much as taco and them want to talk about the "updates" issue, its obviously not one.

lol owned... and seriously, hacking the phone is only for the user... malicious apps are more of a problem...

iOS was remote hacked in 12 seconds last year. thats not a user, thats a security issue. hacking competitions are done without the phone in hand.

i am very aware of said hacking things... okay and seriously though as the guy said google pushes bug fixes the day before.. apple does not.. okay and if there is someone that interested in getting whats on my phone, he will get it no matter what phone i have... and android is freaking rooted before the os is even released on the phones.. roms are leaked etc... u can even put android on an iPhone!.. can u put iOS on an android.. no...

lucas, thats apples and oranges

iOS drivers are only written for that specific phone. Android drivers are much more ubiquitous. The iphone4 shares the same internals as the hugely popular GalaxyS, so yea with some tweaking you can force android onto an iphone4. iOS drivers arent publicly available for tweaking so its not a 2 way street.

its the same as macOS and Windows. You can put windows on a mac computer as they run the same hardware.. hell apple touts "dual running with windows" to get people to buy macOS. You cant however, go the opposite way.

Neither of those things has anything to do with a malicious hacker trying to get into your system.

Rooted has nothing to do with malicious hacking and doesnt change its ease as far as I know.

rom leaks have nothing to do with malicious hacking.

I think your getting "hacking" confused with "ROMingr/rooting" at this point as most people use hacking for either or.

i dont think android has been ported to the iphone 4 so that is invalid..

and if im getting hacking confused with roming/rooting than ur gettting hacking confused with jailbreaking….

and i have a mac and yes thats a great thing abotu macs.. much more freedom

jailbreaking is the same as roming/rooting on android. its just another term for the same thing.

no, im definitely not confusing my terms. :)

people have been hacking android onto iphones for a while now.

Didn't many people claim that Apple's OSs are always more solidly built and immued from unwanted attacks? The same group of people always claimed anything from Microsoft are crabs ... Can someone please advise me where the safe havens are? :(

iOS is extremely secure unless you follow the jailbreaking procedures. If you look at the Jailbreak apps that iOS a large majority of them are in the Android Market and don't require to root.

Android you can get some pretty nasty stuff if you don't read what you install. iOS owners don't need to worry about what they install because Apps on the App store have less permissions than the apps for android.

Really its pick your poison if you ask me.

Can any security expert, or hacker, please comment on Kjayhawak's claim " iOS is extremely secure ..."? I assume that the "root" process makes iOS system secured.

If you are wanting a secure OS, go with WP7 - hackers don't waste their time hacking low selling OSs.

doesn't really matter since mangoes taste so much better than apples anyways..

Definitely, mango is a more precious (in terms of $ sign) fruit than apple. An analogy would be: wearing a suit made/branded with Hermes will always make prouder than if the suit is made/branded with Kenneth Cole!

When I owned the iPhony 3g i jailbroke it twice. It ran even worse with the jailbreak both times I tried. I realized it was not worth it at all. The only jailbreak I like is AC/DC's song of the same name.

I had my iPhone 3G jailbroken pretty much the entire time I owned it. Then I found out I could get all the features I liked about jailbreaking standard on Android, and I've never looked back.
