Renowned iOS hacker and developer, i0n1c (aka Stefan Esser), has reportedly organised an iOS Kernel Exploitation Training course in Germany. This will run from 2 to 6 September. The entry fee is €4,500, with an extra €500 in case of late entries. There are only 15 seats available.
Hacker i0n1c, the creator of the iOS 4.3x untethered jailbreak, is back in action after a long break.
Another veteran hacker, P0sixninja, earlier launched a new website to support openjailbreak source for the benefit of sharing and using iOS exploits for jailbreaking. Consequently, team UnthreadedJB of iOS 5.1 untethered jailbreak fame claimed access to working untethered jailbreak for iOS 6.1.3.
With a spate of inspiring events unfolding in the jailbreak scene and the iOS 7 beta release cycle nearing its end, the next iOS untethered jailbreak seems just a few weeks away. The latest news of the iOS Kernel Exploitation course in Germany strengthens hopes of seeing a iOS 6.1.3 or iOS 7 untethered jailbreak soon.
Addressing the jailbreak community, here is what veteran hacker i0n1c tweeted in his recent Twitter update:
According to Lets Unlock iPhone, the idea of organising the workshop is driven by massive user demand for learning the tricks of unearthing exploits and implementing them in successfully jailbreaking Apple's mobile firmware kernel. The report further suggests i0n1c has personally assured the jailbreak community that several vulnerabilities do exist to develop iOS 6.1.3 untethered jailbreak.
Given the threat that Apple might fix all known exploits in its forthcoming iOS 7 public release, several veteran hackers have hinted they will not release any jailbreaks until the final release of the next iOS platform.
