Now that the curious tool Houdini, which uses a sandbox escape to achieve various jailbreak-like tweaking and theming effects, has been been out a few days, we decided to do a quick run-through of the app.
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. This “semi-jailbreak” beta cleverly brings you some of the benefits of a full jailbreak, without tackling the daunting task directly.
In this guide, we show you the simplest way to install the most recent version of Kodi to your Apple TV 4. This method uses the official build of Kodi, and does not rely on third-party distributions or knowledge of Xcode.
In this guide, we’ll show you how to use Extender: Reloaded (formerly Extender Installer) to modify Saurik’s Cydia Extender, allowing you to automatically re-sign your jailbreak app on-device. No more 7-day signing, no more computer required!
There’s now a way to avoid re-signing your jailbreak app every 7 days with a computer. Extender: Reloaded (formerly Extender Installer) modifies Saurik’s Cydia Extender, and allows auto-resigning of the jailbreak app on-device.
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.
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.
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.
