Apple released iOS 14.2 and iPadOS 14.2 to users with many alluring feature upgrades such as new emojis and intercom along with major security updates. These security updates are the reason why jailbreak developers continuously remind the community to stay in the lowest possible firmware, as this can increase the jailbreak eligibility.
So as per these security stories, if you are hoping for a full-fledged iOS 14 jailbreak, you should immediately downgrade your iPhone or iPad to iOS 14.1. This is because a major kernel bug has been patched by Apple in iOS 14.2 . This vulnerability could have been used for jailbreaking iPhones running iOS 14.
Mohamed Ghannam (@_simo36), the developer who found the clue of aforementioned kernel bug, shared a proof of concept (PoC) on Twitter Thursday evening, noting that it was “reachable from within the sandbox:” This can lead the way for a possible iOS 14 – iOS 14.1 jailbreak.
Apple describes this “precious” kernel bug CVE-2020-27905 as one that could allow malicious applications to execute arbitrary code with system privileges.
Even though this bug was patched in iOS 14.2 and iPadOS 14.2, it supports iOS 14.1 and iPadOS 14.1 and below. So if you are interested in iOS 14 Jailbreak / iOS 14.1 Jailbreak DO NOT UPGRADE TO IOS 14.2. If You have already updated, DOWNGRADE NOW TO IOS 14.1. Downgrading option will be possible only for a limited time and better be hurry for jailbreak iOS 14.2.
