If you’re trying to stay on the up and up in today’s jailbreak community, then you might find the scattered nature of information difficult to follow. Fortunately, iDB tries to make this easier by compiling all of it into one convenient piece.
In today’s roundup, we’ll discuss the latest tweak releases and other relevant topics that may impact jailbreakers or prospective jailbreakers alike. The content will cover the week of Monday, November 7th to Sunday, November 13th.
The most important stories from this week
palera1n gets semi-tethered support on iOS 15.0-15.3.1

You can learn more about what this means and why it’s an improvement over what palera1n was in our full news post.

Mugunghwa updated with enhanced features
Mugunghwa, the popular system customization platform for jailbroken and non-jailbroken devices running TrollStore, was updated on Thursday to version 3.0.2.
According to the change log, this update provides faster theming, improved safety features, and other improvements that you can learn all about in our full news post.
Best conversation-starting jailbreak tweaks
Sometimes all it takes to get a non-jailbreaker interested in jailbreaking is to show them something that your device can do that theirs can’t. That’s because doing so can invoke a jealousy that lights the wick of interest.
We showcase in a dedicated roundup what we believe are some of the best jailbreak tweaks for iOS 14 that will help you get noticed by non-jailbreakers to start a conversation about it.
You can find out more about those jailbreak tweaks in our full roundup post.
TrollApps for TrollStore
A new app called TrollApps was released to offer an App Store-like user experience for TrollStore users who want to discover and download more apps that they can perma-sign.
The TrollApps experience is complete with a list of available apps and App Store-inspired ‘Get’ buttons for each. But this early in the launch, the app still appears to be quite bare-bones and the offerings are slim.
You can learn more about TrollApps and how it looks and works in our full news post.
iOS 16.1.1 released
Apple released iOS & iPadOS 16.1.1 on Wednesday with bug fixes and security improvements for iPhones and iPads.
You can learn more about iOS & iPadOS 16.1.1 and what’s new in our full news post.

As this week’s jailbreak news roundup comes to a close, we remind our readers that iDB will have boots on the ground all week long to ensure that everyone can stay updated on the latest news as it breaks.
Of course, we’ll also return this same time next week, albeit with a refreshed content list to match the times, so remember to keep that device on the lowest possible firmware and avoid updating it to enhance your eligibility for a jailbreak in the future!
