Thanks to all the exciting tidbits of jailbreak-centric news recently, from the teasers of a working jailbreak on iOS 14 to the release of a kernel-level exploit called cicuta_verosa for iOS 14.3 and below, it seems almost as if the jailbreak community is having an epiphany.
In this roundup, we’ll go over all the latest jailbreak tweak releases and jailbreak-centric news from this past week, ranging from Monday, February 15th to Sunday, February 22nd. As usual, we’ll kick everything off by talking about our favorite releases first before finally moving on to an outline of everything else afterward.
