Leaked BootROM / iBoot source code

Despite the title, most can’t compile this since there are missing build tools. This is just mostly source code.

However, you can use this for research purposes (e.g. finding vulnerabilities). New jailbreak methods are always pretty cool.

One thing I find interesting is the docs/ directory. It contains info that can be used as a starting point.

How severe was this leak?

It’s one of the biggest leaks in recent history for Apple, according to the Daily Mail.

Also, look at what happened to the Github pages that attempted to publish it:

https://github.com/h1x0rz3r0/iBoot
https://github.com/m57/iBoot

However, according to Apple, this isn’t that severe since most of the code is tied to iOS 9.

But in any case, having parts of your most protected software leaked is grave. I’m fairly sure most can see through Apple’s attempts to downplay the issue.
