This week wasn’t quite as busy in terms of jailbreak tweak releases as the last was, but it’s still a lot higher than it has been these last several months without a stable public jailbreak for the latest iOS firmware versions.
In this roundup, we’ll talk about all the jailbreak tweaks that were launched throughout this past week. We’ll start with our favorites and move on to the rest afterwards.
We were in a lull for quite a while, but the jailbreak community seems to be making a comeback as of late, especially in the midst of a jailbreak for iOS 10.1.1 by Luca Todesco, which is currently in beta.
This week, there have been a number of jailbreak tweak releases, and we’ll be rounding them all up for you as we always do on Sunday. We’ll start with our favorites, and then talk about the rest afterwards.
Whilst most are no doubt still eagerly awaiting a jailbreak for the just-released iOS 10.2, there are those who still have devices on various flavours of iOS 9 and older, who have fallen through the cracks of the most recent Pangu releases. For them, this week brought some hope, with two separate announcements of upcoming jailbreaking tools, in addition to the release of a browser-based tool from Luca Todesco. This round-up will cover the various pieces of jailbreak release news that came to light over the past few days.
As reported recently on iDB, Luca Todesco has decided to solve the certification problems which have plagued the most recent Pangu release for 9.2-9.3.3, by making public a web-based tool for re-activating the jailbreak.
After doing some testing and research it seemed appropriate for a more in-depth discussion of the tool, along with a walkthrough, in order to address some of the more technical questions surrounding this latest development in the jailbreaking scene.
Noted iOS security researcher and hacker Luca Todesco has just released a WebKit-based loader for the Pangu 9.3.3 jailbreak. This impressive browser exploit is reminiscent of the original JailbreakMe exploits on iOS 1 and iOS 4, after which it is named.
All that is required for the technique to work is to follow a URL in mobile Safari, press a button, lock your device and wait for the respring.
Whilst this development is testament to Todesco’s hacking skills and has alleviated one major problem with the current 9.3.3 jailbreak: its reliance on developer certificates for the loader app, there is bound to be some confusion over what this tool actually does, and what it means for the jailbreak community. This post aims to bring some clarity to the topic.
These past few weeks have felt pretty stale for the jailbreak community, but this week has seen a slight resurgence. Unfortunately, with no public announcements from reputable jailbreak teams at this point in time, there’s still no news as to when a public jailbreak for iOS 10 may drop.
Regardless, developers continue to make tweaks for iOS 9. In this roundup, we’ll show you everything that was released this week, starting with our favorites.
This week was an improvement over last week in terms of jailbreak tweak release volume in Cydia, but things are still slow as we continue to go on without a jailbreak for iOS 10, Apple’s latest mobile operating system.
In this roundup, we’ll discuss all of this week’s jailbreak tweak releases, starting by showcasing our favorites and then talking about the rest afterwards.
As we continue to go on without a public jailbreak for iOS 10, the Cydia store is in the middle of a drought. These trends are typical when we don’t see a new jailbreak for a long period of time, but Apple isn’t making things any easier with their rapid software updates.
Regardless, jailbreak developers haven’t given up just yet. In this roundup, we’ll talk about what’s new in Cydia as of this week.
