iOS Devices: axi0mX releases checkm8, an unpatchable bootrom exploit allowing for jailbreaks on every FW, downgrades, dualbooting and more! – Exploit works on A5-A11 devices including the iPhone X


I'm a girl that's liked technology from day 1. Mostly interested in the PSVita/PSP scene but I've always modded my stuff when it's possible, that is :) Contact me via DM at @KawaiiAuroraA on Twitter if you have any questions/concerns about my articles or if you have any article requests.

    does this mean that i can jailbreak my ipad 2 to update to a newer version of ios?

    • Duke says:

      No man… You can’t update a non-compatible device to a newer iOS version… Why would you even want to do that? The iPad 2 is laggy as heck with its latest supported firmware as it is… Even if you could do this, it would be a nightmare of a lag machine :/ This bootrom exploit means that you can downgrade to any(compatible) non-signed firmware you want and also jailbreak…I think a bootrom exploit already exists for the iPad 2 actually…

    Hopefully it’s time to start buying iCloud locked devices for the low

    • dude says:

      Sure, buy stolen devices

        It’s not always a stolen device, sometimes people on ebay sell iPhones and never mention that it has iCloud and when you receive said phone and try to ask them for the user/pass, they’ll either not want to give out the info or just say that it’s from someone else. I have lot’s of iPhones that have iCloud because of people like those. With this I’ll finally be able to remove them and sell them.

    What it means is if you example want to have an iphone with data only subscription (which is cheaper) and have a SIP trunk configure on it or even in pair with a FREEPBX for VoIP, it would work just like it does for Android. Apple doesn’t you to do this because they have deal with At$t, Verizon and Tmobile… but you save $$$ a year by doing so. Flowroute is a good SIP provider. I use this with my android for the last 4 years. Cost me 25$ a month for the Internet data and peanuts for the sip(1.25$).

    • Siphon says:

      I’ll share a very dark secret, man. You can download XLite sip client and use it on your iPhone without any exploits.

    Does that mean I could bypass my old iPhone 5 icloud lock? I can’t remember my login *** and apple support gave me the middle finger…
