Our favorite tidbits this week

Fugu15 Jailbreak Demoed

Fugu15 jailbreak demoed by Linus Henze on an iOS 15.4.1 device at the Objective by the Sea security conference.

Gifted security researcher Linus Henze took the stage at the Objective by the Sea security conference on Thursday to show off his fancy new Fugu15 jailbreak supporting up to iOS 15.4.1 (public release) and iOS 15.5 beta 4 (beta release).

The jailbreak currently supports A12 and later devices, while support for older devices may be added in the future. It’s a rootless jailbreak that can be installed via Safari, and uses the Procursus bootstrap with the Sileo package manager.

More details, including a feed of the video presentation, are available in our official news post about this topic.

Tweak Injection Added to palera1n

The checkm8 hardware-based bootrom exploit is being used once again, but the star of the show isn’t checkra1n this time; rather, a tethered developer-oriented jailbreak for iOS & iPadOS 15.0-15.7 called palera1n.

Just this week, palera1n added Substitute-based tweak injection support for most supported A9-A11 chip-equipped devices running iOS & iPadOS 15.0-15.3.1. The developers maintain a list of compatible jailbreak tweaks on GitHub so users know what will work and what won’t.

Since it’s a tethered jailbreak and more complicated than traditional jailbreaks to install, it’s only recommended for folks who know what they’re doing rather than the general public who prefer graphical user interfaces to install jailbreaks.

You can find out more about palera1n and it’s newfangled tweak injection support in our numerous posts about the topic.

Havoc Repo Theme & Cryptocurrency Support

The Havoc repository has added support for themes for not only jailbroken devices, but for non-jailbroken devices as well. These can be installed by way of Apple’s Shortcuts app, but they will be hosted on the repository the same way as a package for jailbroken devices would be.

In the same announcement, Havoc announced support for cryptocurrencies as forms of payment, as well as other improvements to benefit both buyers and sellers on the platform.

Sony PlayStation 5 Jailbroken

Using a new exploit dubbed Cryptogenic, hackers have managed to achieve a jailbreak on a year-old Sony PlayStation 5 firmware (version 4.03).

While the jailbreak doesn’t have code execution or kernel hooking, it does provide access to the debug menu that’s traditionally off limits.

Legizmo Kincaid Comes to palera1n

A new build of Legizmo Kincaid was seeded to beta testers that should be compatible with not only palera1n’s new tweak injection support, but also for the rootless dynamic coming to jailbreaking iOS 15 by way of the Odyssey Team’s forthcoming Cheyote jailbreak and Linus Henze’s upcoming Fugu15 jailbreak.

Legizmo Kincaid allows users to pair their 2022 model year Apple Watches, or any Apple Watch running watchOS 9, with their outdated iPhone firmware, such as iOS 14 or iOS 15. The add-on first gained popularity after being released for TrollStore on iOS 15 and jailbreaks for iOS 14. Most features work seamlessly despite the unofficial pairing support.

TrollStore’s new ‘AirDrop Support’

TrollStore received an update this past week to version 1.1.2 to support the new .tipa file extension.

According to the developer, AirDropping .ipa files isn’t possible, so he would always rename his AirDropped file types to .tipa.

With the newfangled .tipa support, TrollStore can now automatically open these .tipa files after they’ve been AirDropped without having to rename them back to .ipa files again.

You can learn more about the new .tipa file support in our full news post.
