A new exploit for Jailbreak of IOS 13.6.1 is revealed just 2 days after Apple releases the iPhone operating system update
The cat and mouse game between the iOS jailbreakers and Apple continues. If you remember, the unc0ver jailbreak team revealed an iOS 13.5 exploit just hours after iOS 13.5 was released by Apple. Team Pangu even demonstrated a Team Pangu demonstrated an unpatchable Secure Enclave Processor (SEP) chip vulnerability in iOS 14 at the recently held MOSEC 2020 in Shanghai, China. Now a jailbreaker has revealed a jailbreak exploit for the recently released iOS 13.6.1.

In the tweet, the hacker managed to hack the iPhone 11 Pro Max running on Apple’s latest iOS 13.6.1 operating system, without using the popular exploit tfp0. The video posted by 08Tc3wBB demonstrates how the exploit works. It also revealed a working SSH demo. 08Tc3wBB says that his new exploit method uses custom kernel read/write primitives and bypasses the earlier tfp0 completely.
08Tc3wBB also revealed his intention to release the exploit publicly as soon as possible, although no release date was specified.
Apple had released the iOS 13.6.1 and iPadOS 13.6.1 on Thursday, 13th August 2020. The latest iOS update fixes a “green tint” issue that was noticed by iPhone 11 users. Both the iOS 13.6.1 and iPadOS 13.6.1 updates also resolve a problem that could cause unneeded system data files to not be automatically deleted when storage is low. The new software updates are likely to be the last ones in the iOS 13 and iPadOS 13 series as Apple is preparing to launch iOS 14 and iPadOS 14 as its next-generation operating systems.
It is not known whether 08Tc3wBB‘s new exploit method would work with the upcoming iOS 14 iPhone operating system.
