Pod2g Has Bypassed ASLR, One Step Closer to the Jailbreak
In an exciting bit of news earlier today, pod2g announced that he has overcome yet another barrier that was preventing him from finishing the jailbreak. ASLR (Address Space Layout Randomization) is a security measure introduced by Apple in recent versions of iOS. One result of this new method of security is difficulty in developing jailbreaks. Therefore, since Apple has begun implementing this new feature, it has been the effort of jailbreakers to bypass it.
Now, the battle has been won, and we are moving forward to another untethered jailbreak. We still don’t have an ETA, but this has been a long awaited step in the jailbreak community, and will hopefully make future jailbreaks that much easier.
