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.
Today saw the release of an updated version of jk9357’s 32-bit jailbreak tool for iOS 9. The jailbreak, which is named Home Depot, was first released several weeks ago with support for a smattering of devices on various firmwares, and we wrote a piece about its launch at the time.
The updated version is labelled Release Candidate 1, indicating its increasing compatibility and proximity to a final iteration.
Update: RC 1 had an issue that would cause Cydia to fail to install. All users please download RC 2 instead.
Are you are stuck on iOS 10.2.1 or higher, having missed the iOS 10.2 signing window and therefore the Yalu jailbreak? If so, you may be in luck today, provided you have the correct setup. Early reports have come in that some devices are creating nonce collisions on iOS 10.3 b1, providing an indirect route back to iOS 10.2 through Prometheus.
For this clever workaround to come off, you must have a device which produces collisions, namely the iPhone 5s or (possibly, though not confirmed on iOS 10.3 b1), an iPad Air. If you do, you may be able to downgrade from iOS 10.2.1 to iOS 10.2 and jailbreak, by first downloading and installing iOS 10.3 beta 1, and then downgrading to iOS 10.2 using futurerestore.
Those of you who have jailbroken in recent times, with either yalu1011, yalu102, Home Depot, or Pangu 9.2-9.3.3, can’t have failed to notice a new feature of these tools which jailbreakers never had to contend with before.
I’m not referring to the semi-untether here, but rather to the installing of a profile on your device which signs the jailbreak app for a certain amount of time. iOS 10 jailbreakers particularly have felt the irritation of this limitation, but all that may be about to change, based on some tentative words from Cydia creator Jay Freeman (Saurik).
At the same time, other workarounds for the seven-day signing limit have started surfacing; these are almost all a bad idea, and should be avoided.
Developer jk9357 has announced the release of an iOS 9 jailbreak, for 32-bit devices only. The name of the tool is Home Depot, and although some users have reported the tool is not working on their device yet, the news will be warmly received by those whose legacy devices have been so unloved of late.
Since our most recent post on the subject of Luca Todesco’s Yalu jailbreaks for iOS 10, we have been receiving queries from our readers about the status of the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. Although the two flagship devices were supported on the first version of the tool, which was for iOS 10(.1(.1)), they were omitted from the follow-up tool for iOS 10.0-10.2.
This has caused some to doubt whether these devices will ever see a stable build of the jailbreak, and whether they have been forgotten about. Fortunately, these worries are groundless; support for the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus is still very much planned.
Following on from the initial release of yalu102 a few days ago, today saw two more betas posted to Luca Todesco’s webpage. And for those who have been patiently for support for their device, this is welcome news.
Hot on the heels of the source code being posted to GitHub yesterday, Luca Todesco has posted a very early build of the tool to his website. Work on the GitHub code proceeded quickly after its posting last night, with Todesco and others merging several commits to enable Substrate, add more device support, and streamline the tool.
