• Apple leaves even more of iOS 10 beta 2 unencrypted



    It appears Apple have left even more of iOS 10 beta unencrypted in beta 2 according to famed jailbreaker MuscleNerd. In beta 1 the main file system and 64-bit kernel were left unencrypted. In beta 2 the ramdisk and bootloader are also now unencrypted.

      Probably to make it easier for the JB devs to jail break the OS so that the jailbreak community can come up with new features and ideas that Apple can "innovate" in their future IOS releases.

      Apple is running out of ideas to integrate into iOS; so now they need to let jailbreak happen for a while to steal more ideas and programming. HAHA; wouldnt that be awesome

      This has zero influence on the user data. All user data is still encrypted.

      Imagine iOS as a box that has multiple boxes inside of it. For simplicity it only has 4 boxes inside of the one larger box.

      1) Bootloader
      2) Kernel
      3) Operating system
      4) Userdata


      box 1,2,3 are all just taped shut. Box 4 however is a metal box that requires a key or password to open (only one person has the key and it is not stored in 1,2,3).

      So just because you can look inside all the other boxes does not mean you can open every box.

      The only way this is helpful right now is it will allow developers to find more exploits (not just the JB developers) it will allow Apple and Developers to make the system even more secure.

      Great way to put it!

      Yes it is. Apple will push out OS10 wide open so JB'ers can have it while intentionally holding back critical fixes so that way they can rush to JB and all of a sudden have to push patches that fix bugs and close holes.

      All part of the scheme of things. Hence all the fresh roaches running out of the betas.

      They'll probably encrypt it in the last beta
