Good news for owners of the iPod touch (5th generation), Apple TV (3rd generation), iPad mini, and iPad 2 (iPad2,4). The posting of decryption keys for these devices means eligibility for all sorts of 32-bit downgrade and dual-boot tools.
Now that tihmstar has updated his futurerestore tool with support for Odysseus 32-bit downgrade functionality, we’ve put together a guide for you to upgrade, downgrade, or restore your legacy devices at will, using your saved blobs.
If you’ve been trying out the new macOS High Sierra beta (Developer or Public) and have decided to hop back to the official stable Sierra release for the time being, this guide will walk you through the process.
iOS 10.3.1 signing is closing fast. With weak rumours of a possible iOS 10.3.1 jailbreak at some point in the future, we go through whether you should upgrade, downgrade, or save blobs before time runs out.
With Apple’s ever-turning iOS signing machine, many jailbreakers are forever wondering what the best strategy is for their device. In this article, we’ll quickly go through what we consider the smartest options for each device and iOS version so that you can make an informed decision.
I reported a few weeks back on an interesting new bug for 32-bit devices, which allowed you to restore them to any unsigned iOS 9.x firmware, provided you had blobs for the destination firmware.
At the time, it was thought that the bug would mainly be of use for people downgrading from iOS 9.3.5 to a lower firmware, to jailbreak with Home Depot or Pangu9. However, it turns out the bug is in fact more powerful and wide-ranging than previously thought, and may have much wider utility.
As you may recall, software internals consultant Jonathan Levin recently released LiberTV, a jailbreak tool for tvOS 9.1-10.1.
Based on Luca Todesco and Marco Grassi’s work which brought us the Yalu jailbreaks for iOS 10.0-10.2, Levin’s original work covered the equivalent tvOS firmwares, up to a maximum of tvOS 10.1. However, Levin may be able to go one better, based on a tweet posted today.
