iPhone XS Max Jailbreak on iOS 12 Luca Todesco

People in the jailbreak community have been waiting for an iOS 12 jailbreak since Apple started beta testing the software. Developers have finally found exploits in iOS 12 to jailbreak iPhones and iPads from Apple’s walled garden. Luca Todesco, a renowned jailbreak developer, has achieved iPhone XS Max jailbreak on iOS 12. That’s quite a feat given the iPhone XS Max comes with the A12 Bionic chipset, which has additional security measures.

iPhone XS Max jailbreak: Todesco overcomes the A12 restrictions

Last month, Luca Todesco tweeted that he had ‘pwned’ the iOS 12 software. And he claimed to have done it “one first try” without altering even a single line of code from his earlier project. It means the Cupertino company hasn’t made any major changes to the final build of iOS 12 from the beta 12 version. Todesco had also released a video supporting his claim. He said at the time that he would share more details in the coming weeks.

The Italian developer has now confirmed on Twitter that the iPhone XS Max jailbreak has become a reality. Todesco successfully liberated his own XS Max running iOS 12. His iOS 12 beta exploit was still relevant on the final iOS 12 build. With this iPhone XS Max jailbreak, he has validated that there were no hardware restrictions to prevent him from liberating the device.

Todesco not only managed to achieve iPhone XS Max jailbreak but also restored the device to the stock version of iOS 12. He is currently using the same phone as his “daily driver.” Todesco described the XS Max as “a damn fine piece of hardware.” In subsequent interactions with his followers, he said he had jailbroken the A12 Bionic chipset.

When asked whether he would release the jailbreak to the public, Todesco neither confirmed nor denied it. Luca Todesco is the developer behind the popular Yalu and Yalu102 jailbreak tools in the past. It’s too early to say whether he will put an iOS 12 jailbreak in the public domain. But one thing is sure: Despite Apple’s attempt to prevent jailbreaking, the iOS 12 still has some bugs that could be exploited to liberate iPhones and iPads.

Pangu jailbroke iOS 12 before Todesco

Todesco is not the only one to have jailbroken the latest iPhones running Apple’s latest software. A few weeks ago, Chinese security research firm Pangu successfully jailbroke the iOS 12 software on iPhone XS. It was entirely possible for Pangu to liberate iPhone XS Max as well considering both the handsets run the same A12 chipset. Pangu managed to jailbreak it within a week of the new iPhones going on sale.

Team Pangu jailbroke iOS 12 on iPhone XS by bypassing PAC mitigation on the A12 Bionic chipset. They were able to achieve root access on the iPhone XS. Just like Luca Todesco, Pangu has a history of putting together all the pieces of a jailbreak and making it available to the public. The last jailbreak tool Pangu put in the public domain was for iOS 9 in October 2015.

However, Pangu might not release their jailbreak to the public this time. As one Reddit user points out, Pangu has now become a private security company, which is why they didn’t release the iOS 10 and iOS 11 jailbreaks publicly despite having developed them.

Apple doesn’t like it when the iPhone and iPad users liberate their devices. The company warns that jailbreaking voids the warranty on the device and removes the built-in security layers in iOS, exposing you to malware and other hacking attempts. It could also cause your device and individual apps to become unresponsive or crash unexpectedly. Notably, people who jailbreak their devices are already aware of these risks.

Rangana Herath to retire after first England Test

Posted Posted by Admin in News     Comments Comments Off on Rangana Herath to retire after first England Test
Oct
22

Rangana Herath, the most-successful left-arm bowler in Test history, will retire after the first Test in Galle, having told the selectors that he is reluctant to play through an entire three-Test series.

Galle is a sentimental venue for Herath – not only did he make his Test debut there in 1999, he also needs only one more wicket to join Muttiah Muralitharan in having taken 100 wickets at the ground. It was at this venue that Herath also reignited his career at the age of 31, taking 10 wickets in a Test against Pakistan in 2009, after having been suddenly called up to the Test side while he was playing league cricket in England.

Herath, 40, has not played a complete three-Test series since January 2017, having since left two India series early due to injury, before playing no more than one of the three Tests in West Indies in June this year. Herath has had to manage knee injuries for several years now; the strain of carrying Sri Lanka’s spin attack since the retirement of Muralitharan is understood to have caught up to him.

His retirement will leave a substantial hole in the Sri Lanka side, with offspinner Dilruwan Perera likeliest to replace him as leader of the spin attack, for the remainder of the England series at least. Sri Lanka also have three other spinners in the squad: all-sorts offspinner Akila Dananjaya, left-arm wristspinner Lakshan Sandakan, and left-arm orthodox bowler Malinda Pushpakumara. Of the remaining spinners only Dilruwan has played more than 10 Tests, however.

A beloved figure across the island, Herath’s retirement will also bring to an end one of the most remarkable careers in modern cricket. Not only is he the 10th most successful Test bowler in history with 430 wickets, all but 36 of those dismissals came after he had turned 31, with Herath having struggled to maintain a place in the Test side in the first decade of his career. No bowler has also taken as many as his 230 wickets after turning 35. If he takes five wickets in his final Test, he could move up to seventh on the all-time list, passing Richard Hadlee (431 wickets), Stuart Broad (433) and Kapil Dev (434).

Herath is also the last active Test cricketer to have made his debut in the 1990s.

The Galle Test begins on November 6.

Taiwan train crash kills 18 in deadliest rail tragedy in decades

TAIPEI (Reuters) – Eighteen people died and 175 were injured when a train derailed in northeastern Taiwan on Sunday, authorities said, in the island’s worst rail disaster in more than three decades.

Four carriages overturned in the crash, which occurred in Yilan County near the coast on a line popular among tourists when all eight cars ran off the tracks on a bend near a station, officials said.

It was unclear what caused the crash. As of 9:35 p.m. (1335 GMT), all 366 passengers onboard – including the dead and injured – had been evacuated or removed from the wreckage, the Taiwan Railways Administration said.

“The train was going very fast. I thought to myself: Why was it not slowing down on a curve?” 30-year-old Henry Tseng, who was onboard one of the overturned carriages and suffered eye injuries, told Reuters.

“I hit a wall when the car started to flip. Around five to six people were thrown out of the carriage door…There’s no time to think what happened. Everyone was in a rush to get out,” he added.

Hundreds of rescuers and military personnel worked through the wreckage with spotlights on Sunday night in search of survivors, with ambulances stationed nearby.

Rescue workers, some attending to injured people at the scene, used cranes to lift the battered cars, some of which were lined in a zigzag pattern near the tracks.

“Check there, check there,” several rescuers shouted while lifting a deformed car with a crane to look for survivors. Some rescuers climbed onto the top of an overturned carriage which had hit a pole carrying electricity.

The official Central News Agency said the incident was the island’s deadliest rail tragedy since 30 were killed in a 1981 collision in northern Taiwan.

“It’s terrifying. I really did not know how it happened. After a scene of terror, the train flipped, the seats were broken and suitcases were all over the place,” a seventh-grader with the surname Yang told the news agency.

INVESTIGATION UNDERWAY

“We need to get some water in quickly,” a woman was seen shouting in a live broadcast on Facebook shortly after the crush in the late afternoon. Several passengers, who appeared to be suffering from minor injuries, were carried out from a deformed car by local villagers before rescuers arrived, the video showed.

“We will use all our strength and efforts for the rescue,” President Tsai Ing-wen wrote on her Facebook page.

An investigation was under way to find out the cause of the crash, Taiwan Railways Administration said. “The train was in pretty good condition,” its Deputy Chief Lu Chieh-Shen told a news conference.

An American citizen was injured. The authority was checking whether more foreigners were on board.

The derailment came weeks ahead of island-wide local elections that are being seen as a bellwether for Tsai’s ruling party’s performance in presidential elections due in 2020.

Associates pathway to 2023 World Cup undergoes major revamp

Posted Posted by Admin in News     Comments Comments Off on Associates pathway to 2023 World Cup undergoes major revamp
Oct

3:16 PM ET

The ICC announced on Saturday that the diet of 50-over fixtures for Associate teams will undergo a significant transformation from 2019 as part of a redesigned qualification pathway leading into the 2023 Men’s World Cup in India.

The number of countries playing in the tournament will remain at 10 for 2023. The top eight will automatically qualify based on their performance in the 13-team ODI League, or as it is now known, the ICC Cricket World Cup (CWC) Super League. This means that 24 teams – the bottom five in the Super League plus 19 Associates from the rest of the old World Cricket League structure – will compete for the final two spots in the 2023 Men’s World Cup.

It will remain a frustration to many considering the competitiveness of not just Ireland and Zimbabwe but also Scotland and Netherlands at this year’s World Cup Qualifier in March. In the long term though, the broad increase in fixtures for Associates approved at the ICC meeting in Singapore may help players get desperately needed time on the field and build a case for expanding the number of teams at future World Cups.

Here’s a rundown of what has changed in terms of the Men’s World Cup pathway from Full Member level down to the Division Five of the World Cricket League:

The 13-team ODI League rebranded “ICC CWC Super League”

Before: Eight teams, including hosts England, automatically qualified for the 2019 World Cup based on their ICC rankings. There was no obligation to play against other teams at the bottom of the table, leaving scheduling of fixtures and rankings points open to manipulation.

For example, right now, India have 53 matches counting towards their No. 2 ODI ranking. The corresponding figure for 12th ranked Ireland is 23 and it is a mere 16 matches for 13th ranked Scotland, who beat top-ranked England in June. With teams at the top end of the table not playing those at the bottom, it was virtually impossible for the Associates to improve their positions.

After: The prize that Netherlands won for finishing first in the three-year WCL Championship from 2015-17 is being grouped with the 12 Full Members in a two-year long ODI tournament beginning in May 2020. Each team will play eight of the other 12 possible opponents – four series home and four series away – with three matches in each series for a total of 24 matches.

Since everyone plays an equal number of fixtures, qualification will now be based on the points table rather than a rankings calculation. The top eight teams at the end of the Super League will automatically go through to the 2023 Men’s World Cup. The bottom five teams will fall back into the World Cup Qualifier for a second chance at taking one of the final two spots in India.

WCL Championship rebranded “CWC League Two” with expanded fixtures and ODI status

Before: Netherlands only had 14 one-day fixtures from 2015 to 2017 as part of the WCL Championship, and they wound up playing only 12 with two matches washed out. The eight-team competition was played across seven rounds – three home and three away with a final neutral round in the UAE – with two matches per round. Only teams with ODI status (Scotland, Hong Kong, Papua New Guinea, UAE) could have matches against each other counted as ODIs.

After: Netherlands promotion to the Super League means the next edition will have seven teams – Nepal, UAE, Scotland plus the top four finishers in WCL Division Two to be played in early 2019. However, all of them will play each other on a home and away basis – three matches home and three away per opponent – for a total of 36 matches per team from July 2019 through to the end of 2021. Unlike the WCL Championship, all teams and matches in CWC League Two will have ODI status.

The top three teams on the points table at the end of the competition advance to the World Cup Qualifier. The bottom four teams fall back into a repechage event dubbed the CWC Qualifier Playoff, or what was formerly known as WCL Division Two.

WCL Divisions Three, Four and Five rebranded “CWC Challenge League A B” with expanded fixtures and List A status

Before: If a team failed to gain promotion through the WCL Division structure – six-team round-robin tournaments where only the top two finishers were promoted into the next division – their hopes of qualifying for the World Cup were effectively dashed.

For example, Division Three only took place once every 18-24 months. If a country failed to secure promotion during the five round-robin matches, it might have no more 50-over cricket for two years – until the next Division Three, or Division Four if they suffered relegation by finishing in the bottom two – for another chance at promotion.

Prior to this week’s ICC meeting in Singapore, List A status was only given to matches starting in WCL Division Two or higher including the WCL Championship. WCL Divisions Three, Four and Five were classified as “other 50-over cricket”.

After: Following the conclusion of WCL Division Three in Oman next month – where the top two of six teams will be promoted to WCL Division Two – and WCL Division Two in early 2019, Divisions Three through Five will be bunched together and divided into two groups of six teams each. These two groups of six will be rebranded as “CWC Challenge League A League B.”

Instead of having possibly just five matches every two years, all teams in League A League B will be guaranteed 15 fixtures across 27 months from August 2019. Also, they won’t suffer the drastic consequence of relegation for one bad week at a WCL Division tournament. They will be judged on their form across more than two years of competition and all matches in this competition will have List A status, putting it on par with domestic one-day leagues in all Test nations.

The respective winners of League A League B will join the bottom four finishers from CWC League Two in the CWC Qualifier Playoff, effectively the former WCL Division Two. The top two finishers in the CWC Qualifier Playoff will then join the other eight teams in the World Cup Qualifier. The most recent version of WCL Division Two/CWC Qualifier Playoff took place at Namibia in February. Nepal and UAE finished in the top two after a wild final day of drama to advance to the World Cup Qualifier in Zimbabwe.

The most significant aspect of the WCL restructure is that it still leaves the door open to 2023 Men’s World Cup qualification for a team who begins 2019 ranked as low as No. 32, which would have placed them in WCL Division Five. That team would need to finish at the top of CWC Challenge League A or League B, then finish in the top two of the six-team CWC Qualifier Playoff, and then finish in the top two of the ten-team World Cup Qualifier to reach the World Cup. But as Afghanistan showed by starting off in WCL Division Five in 2008, there’s hope for every Associate.

Long queues as Afghan voters defy election day attacks, delays

Oct

KABUL (Reuters) – Afghans braved chaotic delays outside polling stations and the threat of militant attacks to vote in parliamentary elections on Saturday that were seen as a major test of the Western-backed government’s credibility.

A suicide bomber killed 15 people in Kabul, the most serious of a series of smaller-scale attacks that caused dozens of casualties across the country but did not deter voters who endured long queues to cast their ballot.

“Today the people gave an unanswerable response to the enemies of Afghanistan,” government spokesman Haroon Chakansuri told reporters.

Voting should have been over by the time the suicide bomber struck a polling station in the north of Kabul, killing 10 civilians and five police, but polling stations were kept open longer than normal to cope with large numbers of people who had been unable to cast ballots.

Turnout was higher than expected, with long lines forming outside polling centres in the main cities, but many voters were forced to endure extended waits because of technical and organisational problems.

“People’s enthusiasm and participation despite threats, intimidation and attacks by militants must be lauded today,” said one senior international security official, who added: “The electioneering process will require close scrutiny as it is clear that there were multiple failures.”

Untested biometric voter-registration equipment, rushed in at the last minute to counter voter fraud, caused particular problems. The Transparent Election Foundation of Afghanistan, a civil action group, said the devices suffered malfunctions in more than 40 percent of polling centres.

“The biggest problem is with the biometric machines, there are some sites where they’re not working and a lot of voters have been discouraged and have gone home,” said Nasibullah Sayedi, a voter in the western city of Herat.

The Independent Election Commission (IEC), the body overseeing the ballot, said voting hours would be extended in some centres to cope with demand and some polling stations, which had not opened at all, would be open on Sunday.

WARNING TO VOTERS

In the days leading to the vote, Taliban militants issued a series of statements telling people not to take part in what they consider a foreign-imposed process and warning election centres may be attacked.

Security officials said there were more than 120 hand grenade or improvised explosives attacks but they said many of these did not target voting centres but were aimed nearby, apparently with the aim of frightening voters away rather than causing casualties.

Afghanistan’s political scene is still tainted by the aftermath of a disputed presidential vote in 2014 that forced the two main rival groupings to form an unstable partnership. Both sides were accused of massive electoral cheating.

But high turnout, at least in the major cities, reflected strong support for the process in the face of threats from militant attacks and widespread disillusion with a corrupt political class.

“I want candidates to serve the country and hear the voices of the disabled and the poor,” said Abdullah, a wheelchair-bound voter in Herat. “People ask what difference one person’s vote will make but I say, if a million disabled people come out to vote, don’t you think that will make a difference?”

In Baghlan province in northern Afghanistan, men and women came out in numbers to vote and created human chains around six polling stations to prevent the entry of suicide bombers.

ALLEGATIONS OF FRAUD

The United Nations Assistance Mission in Afghanistan issued a statement welcoming the high numbers who voted and said authorities must ensure the election was completed successfully.

It also called on candidates and political parties to play a constructive role “to safeguard the integrity of the electoral process as votes are tallied.”

However numerous allegations of voter fraud made before election have presented a challenge to the legitimacy of the process, seen by Afghanistan’s international partners as a vital step ahead of more important presidential elections next year.

Due to the difficulty of collecting and collating results across Afghanistan, the overall results will not be known for at least two weeks.

Some 8.8 million voters have been registered but an unknown number, by some estimates as many as 50 percent or more, are believed to be fraudulently or incorrectly registered.

About 2,450 candidates are competing for places in the lower house, which has 250 seats, including one reserved for a candidate from the Sikh minority. Under the constitution, parliament reviews and ratifies laws but has little real power.

Election authorities originally planned 7,355 polling centres but only 4,530 were open due to security concerns, according to the IEC.

Voting was postponed for a week in Kandahar province after the assassination of the powerful local police chief Gen. Abdul Razeq. The ballot was also delayed in Ghazni province by arguments about the representation of different ethnic groups.

In the wake of #MeToo movement in India, many Bollywood personalities have been accused of sexual harassment. Those who have been accused of sexual misconduct had to step down from the ongoing projects while on the other hand, many actors refused to work with them.

And Bhushan Kumar backed ‘Mogul’ is one of such project where the co-producer of the film and the lead actor, Aamir Khan, backed out from the project after allegations against the director, Subhash Kapoor surfaced.

Now, the latest update about the film is that Sonakshi Sinha has been roped in for the film to play the female lead. According to the report, the makers wanted a heroine who could exude the retro vibe as the film is set in the 70s and 80s. The report further stated that the role is small but meaningful and the actress is supposed to shoot for a few days. Miss Sinha loved the script and gave a go-ahead to the producer. However, modalities still need to be done.

The actress is yet to sign the film. She will be playing one of his girlfriends in the Gulshan Kumar biopic.

iPhone XS Max Jailbreak on iOS 12 Luca Todesco

People in the jailbreak community have been waiting for an iOS 12 jailbreak since Apple started beta testing the software. Developers have finally found exploits in iOS 12 to jailbreak iPhones and iPads from Apple’s walled garden. Luca Todesco, a renowned jailbreak developer, has achieved iPhone XS Max jailbreak on iOS 12. That’s quite a feat given the iPhone XS Max comes with the A12 Bionic chipset, which has additional security measures.

England bowl, bring in Alex Hales; Kasun Rajitha plays for SL

England won the toss and chose to bowl v Sri Lanka
Live scorecard and ball-by-ball details

England won the toss and chose to field first in the fourth ODI, perhaps reasoning that overcast conditions may aid their seam bowlers, and with the threat of rain looming, that they would rather be chasing if Duckworth-Lewis-Stern calculations come into play.

England’s only change was forced by injury. Opener Jonny Bairstow rolled an ankle at training on Friday, and was ruled unavailable. Alex Hales moves into the XI in his place. Fast bowler Liam Plunkett, who arrived in Sri Lanka on Tuesday, was omitted, perhaps on the reasoning that he has not properly acclimatised yet. Olly Stone, the 25-year-old quick, retains his place.

Sri Lanka made one change on the fast bowling front. Nuwan Pradeep, who had been good in the first ODI, makes way for Kasun Rajitha. With rain around, and with Pallekele being a fairly seam-friendly venue, perhaps Sri Lanka felt Rajitha’s ability to move the ball was preferable to Pradeep’s experience.

One more victory here will see England sew up the series 3-0, with the final game to play on Tuesday.

At least 59 killed as train hits crowd in northern India

AMRITSAR, India (Reuters) – A commuter train travelling at high speed ran through a crowd of people on the rail tracks in northern India killing at least 59 people on Friday, state officials said, making it India’s worst rail disaster this year.

Video footage from the scene showed hundreds had gathered to watch the burning of an effigy as part of the Dussehra festival celebrations, when a commuter train ran through the crowd.

“We have 59 confirmed dead. The toll can rise,” State police chief Suresh Arora told Reuters, adding emergency officials were still trying to ascertain the extent of the disaster on the outskirts of Amritsar in Punjab state.

A Reuters witness at the scene saw bodies of victims strewn around rail tracks, friends and relatives stood around in shock, many were sobbing and appeared distraught.

An officer in the police control room said it was hard to confirm the toll as there were dismembered body parts all over.

Reuters partner ANI, a domestic news agency, reported that the Chief Medical Officer of the Civil Hospital in Amritsar said 60 people were killed and at least 51 people were injured. Reuters could not immediately confirm that death toll.

Police said it was “freak accident” as people did not hear the train approaching amid the din of festivities and fireworks.

During the festival of Dussehra people all over the country set aflame large effigies of a 10-headed demon from the Hindu epic Ramayana in a ceremony that symbolizes the triumph of good over evil.

In Amritsar, video footage showed the effigy of the demon Ravana had just been lit and firecrackers were going off when the train ploughed into the crowd, who were craning their necks and applauding the show.

ANI reported that a witness at the scene said the train that ran over people was travelling at a high speed.

Amarinder Singh, Punjab chief minister, said he was rushing to Amritsar to supervise relief and rescue operations.

“We have also ordered an inquiry as to why this incident has taken place,” Singh told ANI, adding he did not know why the Dussehra celebrations were being held so close to the railway tracks.

DECADES OF UNDERINVESTMENT

Singh declared a state of mourning and said all offices and educational institutions across the state would remain closed on Saturday.

A witness told Indian television channel Times Now that relatives of some of the deceased were picking up dead bodies by themselves and no proper rescue operations were currently taking place.

Bodies of victims lay strewn around the scene and local television stations showed distraught and angry people, including a weeping mother who just lost a child.

“Lot of students were gathered here and we can see so many unknown bodies lying around and there is not even enough light here even now,” one person on the scene told a local channel.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi said he was extremely saddened by the train accident.

“The tragedy is heart-wrenching,” he tweeted. “My deepest condolences to the families of those who lost their loved ones and I pray that the injured recover quickly. Have asked officials to provide immediate assistance that is required.”

India’s state railways, largely built during colonial rule, have an appalling safety record after decades of underinvestment in rail safety infrastructure, as the priority has remained more on keeping fares low for the 23 million passengers who use the network daily.

Seven people were killed and 21 were injured earlier this month when nine coaches of the New Farakka Express derailed in the northern state of Uttar Pradesh.

In the wake of #MeToo movement in India, many Bollywood personalities have been accused of sexual harassment. Those who have been accused of sexual misconduct had to step down from the ongoing projects while on the other hand, many actors refused to work with them.

And Bhushan Kumar backed ‘Mogul’ is one of such project where the co-producer of the film and the lead actor, Aamir Khan, backed out from the project after allegations against the director, Subhash Kapoor surfaced.

Now, the latest update about the film is that Sonakshi Sinha has been roped in for the film to play the female lead. According to the report, the makers wanted a heroine who could exude the retro vibe as the film is set in the 70s and 80s. The report further stated that the role is small but meaningful and the actress is supposed to shoot for a few days. Miss Sinha loved the script and gave a go-ahead to the producer. However, modalities still need to be done.

The actress is yet to sign the film. She will be playing one of his girlfriends in the Gulshan Kumar biopic.

iPhone XS Max Jailbreak On iOS 12 Achieved By Luca Todesco

iPhone XS Max Jailbreak on iOS 12 Luca Todesco

People in the jailbreak community have been waiting for an iOS 12 jailbreak since Apple started beta testing the software. Developers have finally found exploits in iOS 12 to jailbreak iPhones and iPads from Apple’s walled garden. Luca Todesco, a renowned jailbreak developer, has achieved iPhone XS Max jailbreak on iOS 12. That’s quite a feat given the iPhone XS Max comes with the A12 Bionic chipset, which has additional security measures.

iPhone XS Max jailbreak: Todesco overcomes the A12 restrictions

Last month, Luca Todesco tweeted that he had ‘pwned’ the iOS 12 software. And he claimed to have done it “one first try” without altering even a single line of code from his earlier project. It means the Cupertino company hasn’t made any major changes to the final build of iOS 12 from the beta 12 version. Todesco had also released a video supporting his claim. He said at the time that he would share more details in the coming weeks.

The Italian developer has now confirmed on Twitter that the iPhone XS Max jailbreak has become a reality. Todesco successfully liberated his own XS Max running iOS 12. His iOS 12 beta exploit was still relevant on the final iOS 12 build. With this iPhone XS Max jailbreak, he has validated that there were no hardware restrictions to prevent him from liberating the device.

Todesco not only managed to achieve iPhone XS Max jailbreak but also restored the device to the stock version of iOS 12. He is currently using the same phone as his “daily driver.” Todesco described the XS Max as “a damn fine piece of hardware.” In subsequent interactions with his followers, he said he had jailbroken the A12 Bionic chipset.

When asked whether he would release the jailbreak to the public, Todesco neither confirmed nor denied it. Luca Todesco is the developer behind the popular Yalu and Yalu102 jailbreak tools in the past. It’s too early to say whether he will put an iOS 12 jailbreak in the public domain. But one thing is sure: Despite Apple’s attempt to prevent jailbreaking, the iOS 12 still has some bugs that could be exploited to liberate iPhones and iPads.

Pangu jailbroke iOS 12 before Todesco

Todesco is not the only one to have jailbroken the latest iPhones running Apple’s latest software. A few weeks ago, Chinese security research firm Pangu successfully jailbroke the iOS 12 software on iPhone XS. It was entirely possible for Pangu to liberate iPhone XS Max as well considering both the handsets run the same A12 chipset. Pangu managed to jailbreak it within a week of the new iPhones going on sale.

Team Pangu jailbroke iOS 12 on iPhone XS by bypassing PAC mitigation on the A12 Bionic chipset. They were able to achieve root access on the iPhone XS. Just like Luca Todesco, Pangu has a history of putting together all the pieces of a jailbreak and making it available to the public. The last jailbreak tool Pangu put in the public domain was for iOS 9 in October 2015.

However, Pangu might not release their jailbreak to the public this time. As one Reddit user points out, Pangu has now become a private security company, which is why they didn’t release the iOS 10 and iOS 11 jailbreaks publicly despite having developed them.

Apple doesn’t like it when the iPhone and iPad users liberate their devices. The company warns that jailbreaking voids the warranty on the device and removes the built-in security layers in iOS, exposing you to malware and other hacking attempts. It could also cause your device and individual apps to become unresponsive or crash unexpectedly. Notably, people who jailbreak their devices are already aware of these risks.

Guptill out of Pakistan series with calf injury

Martin Guptill had to be withdrawn from New Zealand’s ODI and T20I squads to face Pakistan later this month owing to a left calf strain. The 32-year old opener picked up the injury while preparing for a first-class game with Auckland this week and is expected to be out of action for four to six weeks.

New Zealand face Pakistan across three T20Is, three ODIs and two Tests starting from October 31. Guptill was named in both white-ball squads and has long been one of the team’s senior players, providing fast starts at the top of the order. He made a 49-ball hundred against Australia in a T20I at Eden Park in February.

“Unfortunately for Martin it will take him some time to get over this injury,” selector Gavin Larsen said. “And, with a long summer ahead, we need to make sure we minimise the risk of him repeating it.”

The tour of the UAE will be Gary Stead’s first as head coach of the New Zealand team. They are already missing a first-choice pick in Mitchell Santner, who is still recuperating from a long-term knee injury. Central Stags left-arm spinner Ajaz Patel was brought into the Test side as his replacement, while Ish Sodhi will shoulder the burden during the ODI and T20I leg of the tour.

New Zealand’s A team are set to arrive in the UAE in early October to play a few matches and, based on performance, two members from that squad were meant to be drafted into the senior team. Now, with Guptill unavailable, another spot has opened up.

“Gary Stead and I will work through the possible replacement options,” Larsen said. “We now have three spots to fill in the T20 and one-day squads.”

Trump says Saudi journalist likely dead; Turkey searches for remains

WASHINGTON/ANKARA (Reuters) – President Donald Trump said on Thursday he presumes missing Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi is dead and that the U.S. response to Saudi Arabia will likely be “very severe” but that he still wanted to get to the bottom of what exactly happened.

Turkish police are searching a forest on the outskirts of Istanbul and a city near the Sea of Marmara for the remains of Khashoggi more than two weeks after he vanished after entering the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, two senior Turkish officials told Reuters.

Trump, who has forged closer ties with Saudi Arabia and the 33-year-old Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, acknowledged for the first time on Thursday that Khashoggi, a U.S. resident and Washington Post columnist, had likely been killed.

“It certainly looks that way to me. It’s very sad,” Trump told reporters before boarding Air Force One on a political trip. In an interview with the New York Times on Thursday, Trump based his acknowledgment that Khashoggi was dead on intelligence reports.

Turkish officials have said they believe Khashoggi was murdered at the consulate and his body chopped up and removed. Riyadh strongly denies the allegations and said it is investigating the disappearance of the journalist, who was critical of Saudi rulers, calling for reforms.

Trump spoke hours after receiving an update from Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on the results of Pompeo’s emergency talks in Saudi Arabia and Turkey this week.

In the New York Times interview, Trump also expressed confidence in intelligence reports that suggest a high-level Saudi role in the suspected killing of Khashoggi. Trump said, however, it was still “a little bit early” to draw definitive conclusions about who may have been behind it.

Pompeo told reporters that he advised Trump that Saudi Arabia should be given a few more days to complete its investigation into the disappearance of Khashoggi, which has caused an international outcry and strained Saudi relations with western countries and corporations.

Trump said he was waiting for the results so that “we can get to the bottom of this very soon” and that he would be making a statement about it at some point.

Asked what would be the consequences for Saudi Arabia, Trump said: “Well, it’ll have to be very severe. I mean, it’s bad, bad stuff. But we’ll see what happens.”

The United States considers Riyadh a linchpin in efforts to contain Iran’s regional influence and a key global oil source, and Trump has shown no inclination to mete out harsh punishment to the Saudis. The United States and other Western nations are in a dilemma of how to respond because of lucrative business ties, including weapons sales to Riyadh.

Referring to the Saudis, Pompeo said he told Trump that when the Saudi investigation was completed “we can make decisions about how – or if – the United States should respond to the incident surrounding Mr. Khashoggi.”

By casting doubt on whether the United States will respond at all, Pompeo reflected the internal struggle among Trump and his national security advisers on what to do should the Saudi leadership be blamed for what happened to Khashoggi.

“I think it’s important for us all to remember, too – we have a long, since 1932, a long strategic relationship with the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia,” Pompeo told reporters, also calling Saudi Arabia “an important counterterrorism partner.”

A U.S. government source said that U.S. intelligence agencies are increasingly convinced of the crown prince’s culpability in the operation against Khashoggi, which they believe resulted in his death.

U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin abandoned plans to attend an Oct. 23-25 investor conference in Riyadh as did executives from Goldman Sachs Group Inc., putting the high-profile event in question.

“This incident is unacceptable and clearly they have to answer questions specifically regarding this incident,” Goldman Sachs CEO David Solomon told CNBC.

Earlier on Thursday, senior government ministers from France, Britain and the Netherlands also withdrew from the Riyadh conference, joining a list of international officials and business executives.

How Western allies deal with Riyadh will hinge on the extent to which they believe responsibility for Khashoggi’s disappearance lies with Prince Mohammed and the Saudi authorities.

Trump previously speculated without providing evidence that “rogue killers” could be responsible.

POLICE SEARCH FOREST, RURAL LOCATION

After investigations at the Saudi consulate and the consul’s residence, Turkish authorities have widened the geographic focus of the search, the senior Turkish officials said. Investigators tracked the routes and stops of cars that left those two places on Oct. 2, the officials said.

Khashoggi’s killers may have dumped his remains in Belgrad Forest adjacent to Istanbul, and at a rural location near the city of Yalova, a 90-kilometre (55 mile) drive south of Istanbul, the officials said.

“The investigations led to some suspicion that his remains may be in the city of Yalova and the Belgrad forest, police have been searching these areas,” one of the officials said, speaking on condition of anonymity. A “farm house or villa” may have been used for the disposal of remains, the official said.

The pro-government Sabah newspaper published a series of photos of a man it identified as someone who travels with the Saudi crown prince. The time-stamped photos showed the man outside the Saudi consulate building in Istanbul on the morning Khashoggi disappeared, Sabah said.

Khashoggi went to the consulate seeking documents for his planned marriage to his Turkish fiancee, who was waiting outside, and was never seen again.
