Notably, this alert does not seem to be a UIAlert that could be generated from within a sandboxed application, suggesting that device may be jailbroken.
It’s unclear if Petrich was able to use chpwn’s failbreak or if another exploit has been found. Last year, pod2g reported that with iOS 6 Apple had closed comex’s developer account based exploit that had been used by hackers to root their iDevices for two years.
Notably, hacker p0sixninja recently announced that he has “got a lot of amazing things coming to you all soon. think bigger than jailbreak ;)” It’s been suggested that he may have found a bootrom exploit.
