The latest version of Apple’s iOS has successfully been jailbroken, as seen in a new video that surfaced on Wednesday.

Popping up on YouTube, a new video posted by iPhone security expert Stefan Esser (aka i0n1c) takes us on a tour of an iPhone 5C running iOS 7.1.1 as he taps into various iOS apps and features. The tour includes a trip to the Cydia suite, which jailbreakers use to tweak their device and download apps not available through or approved by Apple.

Esser then goes on to shut down and power up the phone, after which he’s still able to access Cydia, evidence that the jailbreak is untethered and still in full force after restarting the device. Jailbreaking an iPhone 5C shows that the process works on one of Apple’s latest phones.

Video proof of an iOS 7.1.1 jailbreak actually surfaced a few days ago, as reported by Redmond Pie. Fellow iPhone security expert and hacker “winocm” posted a video demoing an untethered jailbreak of an iPhone 4 last Saturday.

In just a few months, though, iOS hackers will likely turn their attention away from iOS 7 and toward iOS 8. Apple is expected to take the wraps off the upcoming new version of iOS at its Worldwide Developers Conference on June 2. Assuming Apple follows the same pattern as last year, we should see iOS 8 roll out in September.

Apple is hardly a fan of jailbreaking and has warned users that the practice violates the end-user license. But the company apparently is a fan of some of the talent behind jailbreaking. Hacker winocm has reportedly landed a job with Apple to start later this year, Cult of Mac and other sites said in February.

    I’ve been hearing a lot of aching over the i – Phone
    3G on and off the web. Thus is defined the appeal of the procedure of
    jailbreaking one’s i – Phone: to access a bigger selection of
    applications. Just go in the manufacturing plant setting from your equipment and select all the reset to zero check.

    For a frequent user, the battery can’t live for one day per
    single charging. And this assurance is to remain in place for quite a time to come.
    Then, you will have to purchase a new one, and these phones are not cheap.
