Hackers hack Lightning-interface, talked about the possibility of creating an “eternal” jailbreak for iOS 9




A group of French hackers «Ramtin Amin» announced the successful hacking Lightning-proprietary interface. Their development they intend to use to prepare the jailbreak to the new version of the operating system for the iPhone and iPad.


German designer Stefan Esser, better known on the web as i0nic, posted on his Twitter a link to the blog of hackers who reported burglary Lightning-interface. The site «Ramtin Amin» describes in detail the process of hacking Apple proprietary protocol using specialized equipment and demonstrates several movies.


The mere fact of opening Lightning does not mean the automatic creation of jailbreak. However, this greatly increases the chances of finding vulnerabilities, exploits needed to prepare. Theoretically, hackers can now find even iBoot-level vulnerability.


Several years ago, the hacker Geohot discovered a vulnerability in the iBoot-devices with the processor A4. Any updates to the operating system of Apple could not block based on the vulnerability tools for “hacking” and as a result users got the so-called “eternal” jailbreak. Until the termination of support for these devices from hackers was able to quickly produce software updates for hacking.

At the moment, hacker groups TaiG and Pangu use alternative methods for finding vulnerabilities in iOS. One of them – porting bugs with older devices with 30-pin connector, which run the latest version of the operating system. Full access to the Lightning-interface increases the chances of a quick training jailbreak for iOS 9.
