Ios 7 1 1 untethered jailbreak

Looks like progress has been made on the iOS 7.1.1 jailbreak scene, as earlier this evening security researcher @i0n1c, also known as Stefan Esser, posted an image of his yellow iPhone 5c running Cydia on iOS 7.1.1:

Esser goes on to detail the his exploit, which he explains as “a single beautiful kernel bug that goes from mobile to kernel.” This exploit impressed jailbreak veteran @MuscleNerd, who suspects Esser will sell his exploit.

Later on in the evening, iOS hacker @winocm posted a video of his iPhone 4 running an untethered iOS 7.1.1 jailbreak (he says he was “bored” on the weekend). Check it out below:

As for other devices running an untethered iOS 7.1.1 jailbreak, @winocm says it “would work elsewhere…if you put in the effort.”

Currently, an untethered jailbreak exists for iOS 7 through iOS 7.0.6 via evasi0n7. Nothing has been released yet for iOS 7.1 yet.

No word as to when there will be an iOS 7.1.1 jailbreak released, but with iOS 8 around the corner, it would be smart to hold off to prevent exploits from being “burned” by Apple. Anyone excited for this?
