Houdini “semi-jailbreak” for iOS 10.x released

In the continuing absence of a full jailbreak, the community has got creative! Several pieces of pseudo-jailbreaking news have come out in the last couple of days, but perhaps the most novel is Houdini.

Jailbreak tweaks of the week: Eclipse 4, FingerTouch, SmartVPN, & more…

Things are really changing for the better in the jailbreak community since the Yalu iOS 10.0-10.2 jailbreak became stable enough for the public to use. Not only has Cydia been brought out of beta for iOS 10, but Cydia purchases have also been enabled, which means jailbreak tweak developers can now host their paid tweaks for the iOS 10 jailbreak.

Since this week has been pretty busy, we’ll be rounding up all the tweaks that were released throughout the week and putting them into a neat little list for you. We’ll start with our favorites first, then move on to the rest later.

Limitless: the curious case of the Cydia fork project

John Coates, the creator of the popular patching platform Flex and a well-respected developer in the jailbreak community, announced this week the first public releases of a new endeavour called Limitless. Currently at Beta 6, this ambitious open project aims to bring newer features to Cydia’s traditional functionality by freeing it from some of the constraints which the stalwart package installer faces, for example, version compatibility reaching through every iOS back to iOS 2.0.

Hacker demos Flying JB, an iOS 9.2.1 jailbreak of little interest

Chinese hacker Min Zheng has showed a demo of Flying JB earlier today, a jailbreak for 32-bit devices running iOS 9.2.1 or lower. The video demo shows off an iPhone 5c going through the jailbreak process as well as Mobile Terminal running on the device once jailbroken.

What may sound like exciting news at first is actually nothing to call home about as the limitations and actual usage potential of Flying JB are extremely limited.

Tweaks of the week: Alympus, Watchdog Pro, and more

The past week was a big week for jailbreak releases. It saw the release of the Surenix and Kyle Howells collaboration—Alympus—which brings a reimagined App Switcher to iOS 8.4. It also saw the release of Watchdog Pro—a multitasking tweak with tons of options.

How to jailbreak iOS 8.1 with Pangu for Mac [video]

The Pangu Team released their Pangu utility for Mac earlier today, so Mac users who were waiting for compatibility with their operating system have no excuse to not jailbreak any longer.

In this post, we will show you how to use Pangu for Mac to jailbreak iOS 8.1. This post was created for an iPhone, but note that the steps are exactly identical, no matter what device you want to jailbreak (ie. an iPad or iPod touch). Likewise, any iOS 8 firmware version can be jailbroken using this tool, including iOS 8, and iOS 8.0.2.

Pangu for Mac jailbreak for iOS 8 now available

The Pangu Team has finally released Pangu for Mac, a utility to jailbreak iOS 8 to iOS 8.1 devices on Mac today. The tool comes roughly two weeks after the release of the Windows version of the tool.

The Pangu jailbreak utility has had its fair share of problems since it was released on October 22 but it’s now stable enough to be given the green light by no less than saurik, the man behind the Cydia installer.
