Those following the Fugu14 untether that security researcher Linus Henze released just last month will likely be happy to hear that it has been updated again with notable improvements.
In a Tweet shared Wednesday afternoon, Henze said that the latest version of the Fugu14 untether has picked up support for more iPads and increased the reliability of the PAC bypass in addition to resolving a snapshot issue.
Unc0ver jailbreak lead developer Pwn20wnd quickly followed Henze’s announcement to share that even the Fugu14 untether for the unc0ver jailbreak had been updated server-side, which means that the latest version will be installed alongside the unc0ver jailbreak when side-loading it with AltStore v1.4.8 and later.
Pwn20wnd added that today’s update should resolve installation errors on some devices and improve overall reliability on other devices, however specific devices weren’t named.
If you’re already using Fugu14 with your unc0ver jailbreak, then you can obtain the latest version by reinstalling the unc0ver jailbreak app via the unc0ver.dev website with the latest version of AltStore since it has been updated with the latest build server-side.
It’s great to see that the Fugu14 untether is receiving regular updates because jailbreakers are actively taking advantage of it to keep their unc0ver jailbreak app signed indefinitely. Obviously, having a more stable installation is better for everyone.
At this time, the Fugu14 untether is only intended for arm64e devices (iPhone XS and later) running iOS or iPadOS 14.4-14.5.1. Support for more device and firmware combinations can be added in the future, which is important considering that other jailbreaks including checkra1n and Taurine may add support in the future.
