Earlier, he had demonstrated a low-level jailbreak for iOS 7.1.1 and had sounded positive about an impending jailbreak for iOS 8.

i0n1c tweeted that iOS 8 beta does not fix any existing exploits being used in the evasi0n7 jailbreak. However, he revealed that the kernel dump looked fine despite the code being changed with a certain lack of patches to fix existing bugs or loopholes in the software.

Here is what i0n1c tweeted while sounding positive about an impending iOS 8 jailbreak:

It is not yet clear if the hack used by i0n1c has the capability to run Cydia in iOS 8. Besides, i0n1c is unlikely to release the public jailbreak for iOS 8 although he might contribute to its development in co-ordination with the Evad3rs Dream Team.

It is likely that a public release of iOS 8 jailbreak will have to wait until Apple rolls out the iOS 8 Gold Master or the final release.
