Hundreds of millions of iPhones are at risk of permanent jailbreaking!
EPIC JAILBREAK: Introducing checkm8 (read "checkmate"), a permanent unpatchable bootrom exploit for hundreds of millions of iOS devices.— axi0mX 🌧️📲 (@axi0mX) September 27, 2019
Most generations of iPhones and iPads are vulnerable: from iPhone 4S (A5 chip) to iPhone 8 and iPhone X (A11 chip). https://t.co/dQJtXb78sG
For iPhone hackers, this is a big news. It’s the first iOS bootrom exploit since iPhone 4 was released 10 years ago.
