In the meantime, jailbreakers who’ve been staying on the lowest possible firmware can enjoy an iOS or iPadOS 14-based jailbreak, which includes support for a bevy of great jailbreak tweaks
In this roundup, we’ll show you all the latest jailbreak tweak and jailbreak-centric news breaks relevant to this past week, spanning Monday, January 17th to Sunday, January 23rd. We’ll begin with our favorite stuff first and then outline everything else afterward.
