Today we got a chance to give you long awaited news, iOS 9.3.2 and 9.3.3 jailbreak is finally being done successfully.
Italian developer – Luca Todesco, released his ‘GasGauge’ 0day named exploit that will be used to jailbreak iOS 9.3.2, iOS 9.3.3 betas, and below.
The release of this exploit is done by the fact that Apple has “went hard on security” with the release of iOS 10 beta, meaning that this particular 0day exploit which was used by Luca to demo a number of jailbreaks is not worthfull for iOS 10.
Todesco, who is presumably better known by his online social networking handle of @qwertyoruiopz, has pasted the raw “GasGauge race condition yielding double free” exploit code to Ghostbin for all to see and analyze, and of course, use however they want if they have the technical knowledge to actually understand the code dump and actually do something useful with it, like making a public jailbreak tool, for example.
The release was made known to the public via Todesco’s Twitter account with the confirmation that this is an applicable 0day exploit for iOS 9.3.3, which is currently still in its beta cycle, and lower iOS versions.
As already specified, the exploit release at this specific time appears to come from the way that Apple has made huge security-based changes with the arrival of iOS 10.
As a developer, Todesco has obviously had an opportunity to investigate the iOS 10 beta 1 codebase, and has announced via a second tweet that Apple “has killed both of my jailbreak chain, gasguage was in one”. “iOS 10 went hard on security”, said Todesco via a tweet. “Basically all the techniques I relied on are broken. Need to start from scratch.”
What this iOS 9.3.2 and 9.3.3 jailbreak exploit means for normal users ?
Before anyone goes and gets excited, there’s a couple of things to observe here:
First of all, the release of the GasGauge 0day isn’t actually a functioning jailbreak tool. Rather, it’s a raw part some coding of Jailbreak that could be used by an experienced jailbreak developer with a sandbox escape to produce a working jailbreak tool for compatible firmware versions.
Secondly, it also gives us an insight into the future of jailbreaking with iOS 10, which if Todesco’s tweets are anything to go by, could potentially be a minefield of difficulty.
