iOS 6.1.3 Beta 2 Patches evasi0n Jailbreak 272

hypnosec writes "Apple released iOS 6.1.3 beta 2 to developers, patching at least one of the vulnerabilities used by evasi0n thereby rendering the jailbreak tool useless — the time zone settings vulnerability. David Wang aka @planetbeing, has confirmed that iOS 6.1.3 beta 2 does patch one of the vulnerabilities that they exploited in their evasi0n tool."

    They didn't know about the N900? The one where you could ssh in and had xterm installed by default?

    Yeah it had a real keyboard too. :P

    The iPhone and its local SSH server predated the N900 by about 2 years.

    Allow me to introduce you to evasi0n, the subject of this (RTF)Article. []

    I think you will be pleased!

    Slapdown? Just pointing out fact. My N900 and N9 still see regular use and will until something I actually want to buy comes along.

    I own a Nexus 7, Nexus 10 and the latest iPad (also owned previous iPads, iPhones, and numerous other Android phones/tablets). The build quality and battery life of the iPad is certainly higher than the Nexus devices. It's pretty obvious if you've used both extensively. I've also had more glitches on the Android devices (e.g. current Google Nexus phone not ringing when people call after it's been running for a week or so, sometimes staying on lock screen when a call comes in, occasional UI quirks). Also the iPad mail app is much better than the Android offerings. Nexus 7 has terrible sound quality through external speaker - not a show stopper, but really should be addressed.

    That said, I much prefer using the Android devices for day to day use. I also spend far more time developing for Android than iOS (in fact let my iOS dev license expire now) and I recommend Android to clients for the type of work I do - my apps are generally not available to the public. I hate being tethered to iTunes, forced to distribute apps via the Apple iTunes store, and Apples general lack of innovation or improvement (not adopting NFC for example).

    So that's my experience; day to day I carry a Nexus 7 around with me, along with my Nexus phone. If I'm anticipating doing a lot of email, I'll either take my laptop, or the iPad2 instead. Im not a fanboi of either camp - just use what I think is most suitable.

    The Nexus 10 is on a par with any iPad for build quality. The Nexus 7 does feel a little bit less high end but then again costs half what an iPad Mini does, and it has a better screen. It is by no means cheap and the textured back cover makes it very easy to hold.

    Battery life seems about the same for each, except that you can replace the Nexus 7 battery easily so there is no need to go easy on it.

Many people are unenthusiastic about your work.
