CoolStar shows off upcoming iOS 15 Cheyote jailbreak Safe Mode, recovery interface, & updated to-do list

Another day, another series of updates regarding the status on the Odyssey Team’s upcoming rootless Cheyote jailbreak tool for iOS & iPadOS 15.0-15.1.1 devices.

In the latest string of updates, Odyssey Team lead developer CoolStar took to the official Sileo / Taurine / Odyssey Discord channel to share tidbits of working features on the jailbreak thus far, in addition to an updated to-do list.

Based on some of the teasers, it would seem that CoolStar has successfully gotten the Cheyote Recovery interface up and running, which includes features such as Safe Mode, Startup Repair, Telnet/SSH, and Normal Boot. In a later screenshot, CoolStar confirmed that Safe Mode does indeed still work as anticipated on iOS 15.

The updated to-do list notes that the following tasks related to developing this jailbreak have already been completed:

  • Breaking out of sandbox
  • Getting root
  • Getting read/write access to filesystem (except rootFS)
  • Breaking AMFI/codesign
  • Running shell commands (some bugs remain)
  • Getting OpenSSH running
  • Getting legacy Odyssey launchd injection working
  • Adding USB Ethernet debug support
  • Getting Userspace reboot working
  • Getting Cheyote recovery working
  • Getting system services started properly after a Userspace reboot (some bugs remain)
  • Putting a bounty out for an iOS 15 jailbreak tweak to install for testing
  • Running tweak in SpringBoard

The following items on the to-do list still need to be completed:

  • Fixing dyld hook
  • Fixing Userspace reboot bug so that manual intervention isn’t required
  • Making sure injection works inside of App Store apps

The continued progress hasn’t slowed down any, and the persistent teasers are reminders that the Cheyote iOS & iPadOS 15.0-15.1.1 jailbreak will be released very soon — albeit no specific ETA has been provided for obvious reasons.
