Important tidbits from this week
Palera1n v1.4.1 released & GUI shown off
The palera1n jailbreak teak in the past week released palera1n version 1.4.1 with bug fixes and improvements and also showed off the upcoming GUI (graphical user interface).

You can learn more about all the details in our full news post.
DarkRa1n iCloud Bypass for A9-A11 devices on iOS 15.0-16.2
With DarkRa1n, you can bypass iCloud Activation Lock in a tethered fashion with the palera1n jailbreak on A9-A11 handsets running iOS or iPadOS 15.0-16.2 but you use this feature at your own risk.
You can learn more about DarkRa1n and how it works in our full news post.
XinaA15 version 1.1.5
The XinaA15 jailbreak tool for A12-A15 chip-equipped handsets running iOS & iPadOS 15.0-15.1.1 was updated to version 1.1.5 on Monday with bug fixes and improvements.
The update is recommended for all current testers and there are prerequisites before testing to ensure stability.

Zebra v1.1.30 released
The Zebra package manager app, a popular alternative to Cydia and Sileo on various jailbreaks, received an update to version 1.1.30 on Monday with bug fixes and improvements.
Being a public update, it’s recommended for all users on all versions of iOS or iPadOS and should offer a nicer user experience over Zebra version 1.1.29.

Among Us passcode theme
A new passcode interface theme for TrollTools users is now available to download for jailbreakers and non-jailbreakers alike.
Using this theme simply requires TrollStore and a compatible device running iOS or iPadOS 14.0-15.4.1 (and some 15.5 betas).
You can learn more about the Among Us passcode theme in our full review post.
iOS 16.1.2 unsigned
Apple on Tuesday stopped signing iOS & iPadOS 16.1.2, a move that prevents iOS & iPadOS 16.2 users from downgrading to the older firmware.
You can learn more about the implications of this change in our full news post.
