Axi0mX Teases iPhone X Running iOS 13.1.1 Jailbroken - [security]
05:12 PM EDT - Sep,30 2019 - post a comment

Over the weekend, news spread of an unpatchable "checkm8" exploit that could allow millions of iPhone users to quickly and easily jailbreak their handsets. Lest there was any doubt it works, the hacker who developed the exploit posted a video on Twitter showing checkm8 in action on an iPhone X running iOS 13.1.1. The bad news for Apple is the nature of this exploit makes patching it away impossible. That's because checkm8 works its magic in the iOS bootrom, which itself resides in read-only memory inside a chip in affected iPhone models. Any jailbreaks that leverage the iOS bootrom can't be mitigated with a software patch. "HACKED! Verbose booting iPhone X looks pretty cool. Starting in DFU Mode, it took 2 seconds to jailbreak it with checkm8, and then I made it automatically boot from NAND with patches for verbose boot. Latest iOS 13.1.1, and no need to upload any images," axi0mX stated in a Twitter post. Checkm8 works on every iPhone model from the iPhone X (and presumably iPhone XS Max and iPhone XS) down to the iPhone 4S, though not the newer iPhone 11 series. There are hundreds of millions of affected devices still in use, and iOS updates can't stop checkm8 from working. That said, this is technically not a full jailbreak, but an exploit. It requires being tethered to a Mac. Axi0mX notes in a follow-up tweet that "when it is not plugged in or in DFU it will boot to stock iOS 13.1.1." That is an inconvenience, though it also makes the prospect of a remote hack "impossible."
