Winocm has posted a video of a jailbroken iPhone 4 device running iOS 7.1.1, warming up the jailbreak community even more following yesterday’s news of Stefan Esser revealing his 7.1.1 jailbreak on an iPhone 5C device.
Winocm’s jailbreak on an iPhone 4 device is not currently working on other device but she (yes she is a girl) claims that it would work on the newer device with more effort. This is what she posted along with the video:
This is the culmination of boredom, 3 hours of work and lots of masochism.
Oh yeah, this is iOS 7.1.1 untethered if you didn’t notice earlier. (iPhone 4 GSM though, don’t want to mess with any other devices that I have. Would work elsewhere… if you put in the effort.
Although there will be more people out there who would want a jailbreak for the newer device, Winocm has surely given them another hope.
Also it is highly expected that she would keep her work for the upcoming iOS 8 instead of releasing a public jailbreak for iOS 7.1.1.
Releasing it now will guarantee that Apple will patch the vulnerability before the arrival of iOS 8, so it is obvious that there is no point of releasing a public version at this time.
Not to forget, Winocm will become an Apple employee as the ha3ker announced previously that she would be joining the Cupertino based company later this year.
