TrollStore developer @opa334 shared an interesting stream of Tweets this past weekend suggests substantial progress regarding the Fugu15 jailbreak tool for arm64e devices running iOS & iPadOS 15.0-15.4.1.
In the Tweet, @opa334 said that a semi-private Fugu15 Max developer-only build is now available upon request to trusted jailbreak tweak developers who wish to begin updating their jailbreak tweaks to support it and the rootless dynamic.
Fugu15 Max is, of course, a Fugu15 derivative that addresses some of the core concerns with the original jailbreak as it was left by creator Linus Henze when announced last October. Those include fixing the Wi-Fi bug and getting tweak injection to work.
In follow-up Tweets, @opa334 said that some stuff is still missing from the jailbreak before it can be considered for a public release. Those things purportedly include:
- Support for Userspace reboot
- A user interface
- Support for A14 chip-equipped devices
While @opa334 expects to be able to fix the aforementioned problems, he doesn’t know exactly how long it will take. He did provide a rough estimate of between 2-6 weeks, however we suggest taking those numbers with a grain of salt as there’s no telling what surprises might come about as work to address the issues moves forward. It’s also evident from past Tweets that @opa334 doesn’t want to rush a release because he wants the user experience to be as polished as possible.
Jailbreak tweak developers who wish to go hands-on with the semi-private Fugu15 Mac build can get in touch with @opa334 using any one of his contact methods.
To help developers along in creating stuff for the rootless dynamic, @opa334 shared a link to a GitHub page about full support for rootless coming to Theos — a toolbox that jailbreak developers have long used to make jailbreak tweaks.
If you’ve been waiting patiently on a supported device and firmware combination for Fugu15, then it certainly seems like Fugu15 Max will be worth the wait. While there’s no concrete ETA for release yet, the general progress being made gives us nothing but positive thoughts about the future of the project.
