Cyberelevat0r iOS 7.1 Jailbreak Is Fake

An official iOS 7.1 jailbreak has been available for the iPhone 4 for quite a while now, but a new iOS 7.1 jailbreak is supposedly available that works for all iPhones and iPads, and it’s untethered. The only problem with it, is that it’s fake.

iOS jailbreak developer i0n1c has teased in the past that he successfully jailbroke his iPhone 5c running iOS 7.1.1 and even posted a video on YouTube demonstrating it all. He calls the jailbreak Cyberelevat0r and there’s now a website where you can download the jailbreak and apply it to your own iOS device, but hold your horses.

iOS 7.1 jailbreak

While the jailbreak itself might be for real, the public release is fake, according to Evasi0n team member MuscleNerd, who says that the Cyberelevat0r website is “the best-looking fake jailbreak so far,” and notes that users are greeted with a survey scam when they go to download the jailbreak.

It’s a little odd to see a reputable jailbreak developer launch a fake jailbreak website, but i0n1c hasn’t been too happy with the jailbreak community as of recently, creating unnecessary drama on Twitter and retweeting tweets that talk about how pathetic jailbreakers apparently are. By that token, we’re not too surprised that he’s been trolling all of us recently.

Furthermore, iOS hacker DarthNull reiterates that a jailbreak release a week before iOS 8 will be announced is probably one of the most insane things that someone could believe, and notes that users shouldn’t expect a public jailbreak release until at least after iOS 8 has been announced.

We’ve said for a while now that jailbreak developers will likely not release an iOS 7.1 or iOS 7.1.1 jailbreak, simply because they don’t want to give away their secrets right before iOS 8 is about to be unveiled. Doing so would give Apple the chance to patch up iOS 8 and fix the exploits used for the jailbreak in iOS 7.1 and iOS 7.1.1.

So when can we expect the next jailbreak to arrive? Well, Apple will most likely unveil iOS 8 next month, but probably won’t release it to the public until later this year, similar to iOS 7′s timeline last year. After that, we should expect an iOS 8 jailbreak soon after, possibly in the late fall/early winter, or early next year at the latest. It seems far off, and it certainly is, but we’d say it’s in the best interest for the jailbreak community.

It’s possible that jailbreak devs could release an iOS 7.1.x jailbreak at some point during the summer when iOS 8 betas are out and about, but that’s also up in the air. Apple would still have the chance to patch up any exploits during the beta process, so releasing a jailbreak to the public during iOS 8′s beta phase probably won’t happen either.

Of course, if you’re still on iOS 7.0.6 or older, you can jailbreak your iOS device with ease, just be sure to stay away from iOS 7.1 like the plague, as it will delete your jailbreak and Apple seems pretty adamant on trying to get its users to update to the latest version. Because of this, you’ll have to be more careful than how you might have been in the past.

Also, if you ever see other claims that you can jailbreak your iPhone right now, they’re probably fake. An official jailbreak will cost nothing and won’t come with any survey scams. Plus, we’ll be one of the first to report on its availability, so keep coming back for updates on when an official jailbreak might be released.

    Although Cyberelevat0r iOS 7.1 Jailbreak is indeed fake, the website doesn’t send you directly to a survey scam. You are first prompted to go to cyberelevat0r.net using your device and adding a Cydia icon to your phone’s home screen which installs the jailbreak. But, This is where the scam comes in. In order to activate this so called jailbreak, you must first obtain a Cydia access key from cydia.cyberelevat0r.net, except you can’t because it takes you to the survey scam site instead.

    Honestly I doubt that is the real cyber elevat0r. Mainly cause they aren’t gonna drop a boot rom style jailbreak just like that. I’m still gonna hope someone releases their real work though. I got my 5s with 7.1 :/

  3. baboomerang says

    donnie7775…. This isn’t a bootrom jailbreak. There hasn’t been one since the iPhone 4 iPod touch 4 and the iPad 1. BASICALLY FROM 2010. There isn’t one for any other device or will there even be one because of how hard it is to find such one. The exploit i0n1c has is A KERNEL EXPLOIT. But the one he found is most likely universal to every device. First of all read and do some better research.

    They need to release a jailbreak for iOS 7.1 eventually otherwise those on iPhone 4 or earlier who are unable to upgrade to 8 will be stuck on 7.0.6 forever..

    See this is the problem with the hacking community…

    So MANY trolls, fakers, and scammers all turning the true devs’ names to dirt with all the stupid fake 5hit that plagues the Internet.
    Here’s the options as I see it…
    1) release early and blow ANY chance of hacking IOS8
    2) keep quiet and get bitched/moaned/whined at by all the FREELOADERS who beg on a daily basis for a free jailbreak.
    3) pack it in and see how many of these idiots can even begin to imagine the time, effort and knowledge required to find & work on these exploits.
    4) just open another horse 5hit website and call it evadersjb711.com and scam the f**k out of people using the good devs’ names.

    Shame on you people! Half of the beggars usually end up f**king their iPhone/iPad/iPod up as they’re TOO DUMB to use it…
    The other half use the FREE jailbreak and charge people for someone else’s work.

    There is no justice anymore, only shit flying backwards and forwards while everyone else ducks under it.

    Since I’ve been watching the jailbreak releases/news there must be at least 5-10 new sites a week opened stating “IOS 7.1 jailbreak here”

    Again shame on you people and I hope you die of anus cancer for all you’re worth.

    I hope IOS 7.1 jailbreak is NEVER released just to teach all you lying trolling teabags a lesson.

    You all know that an iphone 4 with 7.1.1 can be jailbroken using geeksn0w, right? I did mine weeks ago.

  7. Z@C says

    Or you know, packing all that code into a single program easy enough for all you idiots to comprehend, it took me at least 9 hours of hard coding in python and lua to get that damn thing to crack(iphone 5s) and I know that would be bullshit to just drop into the hands of you people and say, here click this, then this, this, this, this, dont click that, now point this here and input this code now but only if this happens.
