Odyssey Team previews upcoming Cheyote jailbreak for iOS & iPadOS 15.0-15.1.1

The Odyssey Team’s upcoming iOS & iPadOS 15.0-15.1.1 jailbreak is well underway, and as a token of excitement this Sunday afternoon, the team took to Twitter to show off the interface of said jailbreak, which appears as if it will be going by the name of Cheyote.

As many will remember from the Taurine era, Taurine was originally referred to as Odyssey14 before receiving its official nomenclature, so it should come as no surprise that the Odyssey Team is giving the jailbreak its own name. While there’s still no ETA for release as of yet, the official name designation, as well as the UI unveiling, are both signs that the jailbreak is nearing completion and should be released in the near future.

The Odyssey Team’s Tweet Sunday afternoon shows off a green and yellow interface that reminds us a lot of what the Taurine and Odyssey jailbreak interfaces already look like. Worthy of note the font used is a little bit different, but users will be able to change the Cheyote color scheme from the jailbreak app’s internal settings much like users already can in the Odyssey Team’s existing jailbreak apps.

Note: All updates regarding the Cheyote jailbreak will occur via the @OdysseyTeam_ Twitter account. All other accounts claiming to represent the Cheyote jailbreak are fake.

Other tidbits from the Cheyote app’s settings include options for:

  • Enabling and disabling jailbreak tweaks
  • Restoring the system from jailbroken back to stock
  • Setting the nonce
  • Enabling or disabling the log window
  • Going to recovery
  • Choosing between different preset themes
  • Selecting up to two different custom colors for the interface gradient

Another tidbit that will interest users is the familiar OTA updating of the Cheyote jailbreak tool when the Odyssey Team pushes updates:

Obviously, the Cheyote jailbreak will install the Sileo package manager by default, but users will be able to install alternatives if they wish, such as Zebra.

As many would come to expect from the myriad of status updates shared by CoolStar over the past several months, internal confirmations between the Odyssey Team and iDownloadBlog note that the Cheyote jailbreak will indeed be rootless and that it will initially support iOS & iPadOS 15.0-15.1.1 on all devices based on an exploit released earlier this year. The possibility of including support for up to iOS & iPadOS 15.3.1 is being investigated, but isn’t guaranteed.

iDownloadBlog has also been told that the Cheyote jailbreak app’s user interface will be open-sourced around two weeks after being released, and that the remaining components of the jailbreak will be open-sourced longer down the road.

The Odyssey Team has already secured website domain(s) for the upcoming jailbreak tool, and as the team works to transition the jailbreak community from a traditional jailbreak experience to a rootless jailbreak experience, support will be provided in the team’s Discord channel for developers who need hep converting jailbreak tweaks to the new user experience to be fully compatible with the upcoming iOS & iPadOS 15 Cheyote jailbreak.
