An exploit with safari's hyperlink have allowed the famed Pangu Jailbreaking team to gain elevated access to the new iphone 13 Pro and its iOS 15. Winning the team a decent award of $300,000 USD.

According to the contest website, teams had to allow the iPhone 13 Pro to browse a remote URL, to allow the contestants a chance to "control the phone system." As part of the challenge, contestants had to bypass "PAC mitigation," with additional prizes offered for a sandbox escape or a jailbreak. Three tiers of prizes were associated with the iPhone 13 Pro, with remote code execution winning $120,000, while RCE with a sandbox escape securing the contestant $180,000. For the remote jailbreak, the prize is $300,000. The iPhone is only one of a number of targets in the overall competition, covering both Apple devices and products from other companies. Other targets include RCE attacks against Safari running on both Intel and Apple Silicon MacBook Pro models, as well as a Synology NAS, a Xiaomi Mi 11 smartphone, and Windows 10 and Google Chrome running on notebooks, among others.

 

My thoughts

Sadly for the rest of us, this exploit won't be publicized so everyone's gotta wait a bit longer for a iOS15 JB but it is a proof that a working jailbreak do exist for the newest iphones. What annoys me however is that many jailbroken apps are not compatible with consecutive updates at all.

Huh, nice

Tho, tbf, The numbers of those who actually jailbreak have plummeted. (But I could be wrong)

If you're someone who would like the benefits of jailbreaking I see little reason to go for an iphone to begin with

Sauron'stm Product Scores:

Spoiler

Just a list of my personal scores for some products, in no particular order, with brief comments. I just got the idea to do them so they aren't many for now :)

Don't take these as complete reviews or final truths - they are just my personal impressions on products I may or may not have used, summed up in a couple of sentences and a rough score. All scores take into account the unit's price and time of release, heavily so, therefore don't expect absolute performance to be reflected here.

 

-Lenovo Thinkpad X220 - [8/10]

Spoiler

A durable and reliable machine that is relatively lightweight, has all the hardware it needs to never feel sluggish and has a great IPS matte screen. Downsides are mostly due to its age, most notably the screen resolution of 1366x768 and usb 2.0 ports.

 

-Apple Macbook (2015) - [Garbage -/10]

Spoiler

From my perspective, this product has no redeeming factors given its price and the competition. It is underpowered, overpriced, impractical due to its single port and is made redundant even by Apple's own iPad pro line.

 

-OnePlus X - [7/10]

Spoiler

A good phone for the price. It does everything I (and most people) need without being sluggish and has no particularly bad flaws. The lack of recent software updates and relatively barebones feature kit (most notably the lack of 5GHz wifi, biometric sensors and backlight for the capacitive buttons) prevent it from being exceptional.

 

-Microsoft Surface Book 2 - [Garbage - -/10]

Spoiler

Overpriced and rushed, offers nothing notable compared to the competition, doesn't come with an adequate charger despite the premium price. Worse than the Macbook for not even offering the small plus sides of having macOS. Buy a Razer Blade if you want high performance in a (relatively) light package.

 

-Intel Core i7 2600/k - [9/10]

Spoiler

Quite possibly Intel's best product launch ever. It had all the bleeding edge features of the time, it came with a very significant performance improvement over its predecessor and it had a soldered heatspreader, allowing for efficient cooling and great overclocking. Even the "locked" version could be overclocked through the multiplier within (quite reasonable) limits.

 

-Apple iPad Pro - [5/10]

Spoiler

A pretty good product, sunk by its price (plus the extra cost of the physical keyboard and the pencil). Buy it if you don't mind the Apple tax and are looking for a very light office machine with an excellent digitizer. Particularly good for rich students. Bad for cheap tinkerers like myself.

Judge the product by its own merits, not by the Company that created it.

My guess is just that the people who wanted phones with elevated access moved to android, where rooting can be passed on on every OS update and can be applied on most phones. That and rooted apps also work on newer rooted android releases unlike iOS.

I would speculate that JBing of iPhones have plummeted a lot because of apps moving to freemium/subscription model instead of a one time purchase. 

 

Because let's not kid ourselves, at least 10 years ago almost everyone (that I know at least) that JBed their iPhone did it because not having to pay for apps.

Apple. What a bunch of slackers. The fact the OS was 0wned this quickly just goes to show how infectively a near infinite amount of money can help. This isn't a funding problem; it's a leadership / management issue at Apple.

Good luck with movie streaming and banking apps. They are notorious for whining overroot. Hell, even if your phone is not rooted, just with unlocked bootloader they'll refuse to work. Been there, seen that. And I don't have time to jerk around with stupid Magisk every time to hide things from apps.

Honestly, most of the time they just do the same thing they did on the last version. If that doesn't work then they look for known CVEs. Spending weeks/months with a soldering iron, debugger and an IDE is not really all that common anymore.

He's parodying Doug Henning, a magician from the 70's/early 80's. (You may know that, but Henning has sorta been lost to history, though I rmember him being very big when I was young).

 

re: what they're doing.. no the whole thing..the whole doing something and gaining access etc bit.. it's really beyond my level of comprehension...I did once jailbreak a nook iirc...following a specific set of instructions, but I couldn't tell you what I did and how (or why at this point...it was many years ago). Like I guess they do blah which overloads a memory section in the computer causing an error state that they can take advantage of, but shurg.
