-IOS 2019 a flaw could allow jailbreak for life on all iPhone models: A computer scientist has discovered a bootrom exploit on iOS. According to his explanations, the flaw would provide a permanent and unstoppable jailbreak on all smartphones Apple / IOS

-A Twitter user named axi0mX, who claimed to be an iOS security specialist, shared a message revealing the exploit he calls checkm8 ("checkmate", which means "failure"). and matte "). millions of devices are concerned from the iPhone 4S to the iPhone X. The newer devices like the iPhone XS, XR, 11 and 11 Pro, are not concerned.

The result could lead to a permanent jailbreak

-Exploitation is bootrom, meaning it takes advantage of a vulnerability in the initial code that iOS devices load at startup. Because it is stored in ROM (read-only), it can't be changed by software update. This is the first release of bootrom exploit for iOS devices from iPhone 4.

-This says this discovery does not allow a complete protection break with Cydia installed. It is currently exploiting developers who can use it for advanced tasks such as dumping SecureROM or decrypting the key using the AES engine.

-At the beginning of the iPhone, there was a large group of active developers to work on broken hardware protection. IOS has integrated most of the basic features previously provided by jailbreak (wallpaper, multitasking, copying, and pasting) and has closed its security vulnerabilities. Apple's rewards program, which rewards security groups that unveil vulnerabilities without deploying them, encourages developers not to exploit exploits.
