Famous jailbreaker iH8sn0w recently confirmed in a Reddit thread that an iOS 7.1.1 jailbreak is most likely coming in the near future. After plenty of teasing, we were still not sure if an iOS 7.1.1 jailbreak will get a public release. It looks like it will happen, but there’s no exact time frame. An iOS 7.1.1 jailbreak could be released to the public once Apple releases the final version of iOS 8.
In a recent Ask me Anything Reddit thread started by iH8sn0w, a certain user asked if there will be a jailbreak for iOS 7.1.1 in the near future. To that the hacker replied, ‘most likely.’
Now that doesn’t give us a time frame, but it does confirm that there will be a public iOS 7.1.1 jailbreak. iOS hackers Winocm and I0n1c have already teased us with pictures and video(s) of an iOS 7.1.1 jailbreak. The only thing that remains now is a public release.
I0n1c also managed to jailbreak iOS 8 beta 1, which Apple seeded some days back. He had previously stated that he wouldn’t be releasing any jailbreak. iH8sn0w and others could use current exploits that made an iOS 7.1.1 jailbreak possible and release a public tool. We just don’t know when, but we’re hoping it’s soon.
Apple will probably release iOS 8 to the public in September, which means we could get a jailbreak during around that time.
