WWDC has been and gone with the usual announcements, giving iOS users plenty to look forward to. A high percentage of the jailbreak community has been left out in the cold with the last few jailbreaks but the Mobile Security Conference, which recently took place in Shanghai, has given us more than hope. A new jailbreak was demonstrated at the conference and, unlike the last one, this jailbreak will work on all iOS devices. Called Keen Jailbreak , it was demonstrated by Min Zheng, the head of security research at Alibaba, with the software provided by Tencent Keen Lab’s Liang Chen.

Keen Jailbreak is expected to be widely received in the jailbreak community and a utility that everyone can use has been a long time coming. With Yalu Jailbreak, only a certain group of iOS users could download and use it and that meant so many jailbreakers were stuck without access to Cydia and all their favorite apps and tweaks, waiting for a new jailbreak to come along.

That wait is over and, although we expected the jailbreak to come from Pangu or Taig team, it seems that they have exited the jailbreak community very quietly and disappeared off the radar. Right now, Keen team are our hope for the future of jailbreaking so let us know what you think of it and stay up to date with all the latest jailbreak news by following us on Facebook.
