I0n1c is a very talented jailbreak jailbreaker from Germany, who also goes by the name of Stefan Esser. He hasn’t been on the jailbreak scene very much just recently but, in the past, was responsible for a couple of very good jailbreak utilities. Now it seems he has stepped back into the limelight with a video of an iPhone 5C jailbroken on iOS 7.1.1.

This is a video of the iPhone he produced photos for a few days ago but the video obviously shows much more information. He has called the jailbreak Cyberelevat0r. The video confirms that his iPhone is running on iOS 7.1.1 and that he managed to install Cydia, along with one or two jailbreak utilities as well. He also shows that the jailbreak is untethered by going through the reboot process. You can see the process in the video below:
Whether the jailbreak will work on any other device is something we don’t know at this stage although, if it works on the iPhone 5C there is no reason to believe it won’t work on other A7 devices. One thing that has been made clear is that the jailbreak will not be released to the public – at least not yet. What happens in the future is another matter, as we saw with iOS 6.1.3 last year.

Pod2g, Evad3rs team member has also said that he is looking at a jailbreak for iOS 7.1 and 7.1.1 and, if it could be created in a month or less, it could be released. However, if it is going to take longer then it would not be worth releasing, as iOS 8 is not far off.
That said, although iOS 8 is expected to release in September, the jailbreak may not be available until next year. Do you think i0n1c should release his jailbreak or are you happy to wait and see what Evad3rs come up with ?
