New UnTethered iOS 7.1.1 Jailbreak Scams Propagate, How to Spot Them – Ensuing Apple’s somewhat recent release of the UnTethered evasion jailbreak-patching 7.1 firmware, and especially the company’s infinitely more recent 7.1.1 update, a countless number of jailbreakers have become stuck. Frantically scouring for an UnTethered 7.1.1 jailbreak solution, a sizable portion of these jailbreakers have regrettably fallen victim of despicable jailbreak scams that now clutter the web. Today, a new set of fraudulent sites claiming to jailbreak 7.1.1 Untethered on devices like the iPhone 5s, iPad mini, Air, and even the iPhone 4s caught the attention of Jailbreak Evasion Info’s staff members.
UnTethered Jailbreak 7.1.1 Scams Propagate
First, before delving into the dangers shrouding falsified jailbreak utilities, it’s important to realize that the tool capable of Jailbreaking iOS 7.1.1 exclusively supports the iPhone 4 (due to the 4 year old exploit it implements)
As for an UnTethered utility that can jailbreak all iPhone, iPad and iPod touch models, evasion7 is, and will remain, the only jailbreak of its kind for iOS 7. While the tool supports iOS 7.0 through 7.0.6, evasi0n cannot jailbreak 7.1.1 UnTethered on any device.
How To Spot Jailbreak iOS 7.1.1 Scams
YouTuber iCrackUriDevice’s current iOS 7.1.1 Jailbreak episode features a great update segment, I suggest watching it.
As mentioned above, the only available iOS 7.1.1 jailbreak utility is in the form of older repackaged exploits: GeekSn0w. Unless we explicitly detail other jailbreak tools, which we’ll do the second legitimate ones become available, consider them to be fake.
There are multiple forms of fraudulent jailbreak sites and/or utilities you should be on the lookout for – the first, and probably most common, is an endless survey that promises an UnTethered solution, but instead infinitely loop surveys to generate quick cash.
Other scams include poorly modified versions of existing utilities that can do a number of things from promoting ads and other scam sites to actually infesting Windows-based PCs with multiple forms of viruses, including highly-dangerous phishing tools.
While I won’t highlight the names of some of the newer fake services, for obvious reasons, avoid anything you come across that claims to jailbreak iOS 7.1.x and cross-check it against Jailbreak Evasion Info. If the tool in question doesn’t appear in your query on our site-wide database search functionality, found at the top of our right sidebar, it’s legitimate – the reverse applies if it isn’t found and Jailbreak Evasion Info returns the “No Posts Found” message.
