Last week, we shared the news about how the XinaA15 jailbreak tool for A12-A15 chip-equipped devices running iOS or iPadOS 15.0-15.1.1 had been leaked to the general public, resulting in the developer’s decision to launch an early public testing period.
Today, the XinaA15 jailbreak was updated to version 1.1.4 with several improvements. Citing the project’s GitHub page, this update brings the following changes:
– Add support for iPad mini (6th generation)
– Fixed a jailbreaking failure due to lack of active files
– Repair firmware
– Fix the input method card problem
– Fix the white icon problem
– Fix the landscape orientation problem
– Fix the iosopendev failed to install problem
– Fix the quick command problem
– Fix the non-English program name cannot be injected problem
– Now use libhooker v1.69 for tweak injection
– Saily is now the default package manager app
– Stability adjustments
– And more…
The developer also notes that you will likely need to re-add the BigBoss and/or Procursus repositories after updating.
Regardless of the fact that XinaA15 has received an update with bug fixes and stability improvements, this doesn’t change the fact that the jailbreak is still only intended for developers.
If you’re moving forward anyway, then updating is as simple as booting into a non-jailbroken state, downloading and perma-signing the jailbreak app with TrollStore, opening the app, using the rebuild jailbreak environments option, and jailbreaking.
Currently, almost no jailbreak tweaks support the rootless dynamic of XinaA15. Most packages are built to run on non-rootless jailbreaks such as the likes of palera1n, however the latter is only available for older A9-A11 chip-equipped handsets.
If you aren’t a developer and don’t need the jailbreak for reasons relating to tweak development or testing, then we strongly recommend waiting until the XinaA15 jailbreak comes out of beta and becomes officially recommended for all users.
