Jailbreak news of the week: Dopamine jailbreak revealed, Sileo and Zebra drop XinaA15 support, & more…

There’s been a lot going on behind the scenes in the jailbreak community recently. From repositories and developers ramping up for rootless jailbreak tweak support, to the Fugu15 Max jailbreak for arm64e devices (iPhone XS and later) running iOS & iPadOS 15.0-15.4.1 moving closer to completion.

Weekly jailbreak news roundup.

If you’re a busy bee, then you’ve probably found it difficult to keep up with all these fast-paced changes in the jailbreak community, and that’s why we make these roundups every Sunday, to make sure you can stay up to date on new developments and never miss a beat.

In this roundup, we’ll discuss everything that’s been happening in the jailbreak community from tweak releases to news announcements spanning the week of Monday, April 17th to Sunday, April 23rd.

Important stuff from this week

Dopamine iOS 15.0-15.4.1 jailbreak teased

Dopamine UI

Lars Fröder just this week teased the UI of the upcoming Dopamine jailbreak, formerly known as Fugu15 Max.

The unveiling came just after Fröder said the jailbreak would be called Dopamine, a play on the developer’s @opa334 Twitter handle.

You can learn more about Dopamine in our full news post.

Sileo ends support for XinaA15

XinaA15 no longer supported by Sileo.

The Sileo Team announced last weekend that Sileo would no longer be supported on the XinaA15 jailbreak, a tool that supports arm64e devices running iOS & iPadOS 15.0-15.1.1.

The news means that Sileo users on the XinaA15 jailbreak will either need to use the Saily package manager instead or switch to the Fugu15 Max jailbreak for arm64e devices running iOS or iPadOS 15.0-15.4.1.

You can learn more about this change in our full news post.

Zebra ends plan to support XinaA15

Following in Sileo’s footsteps, the Zebra Team scrapped plans for the Zebra package manager to support the XinaA15 jailbreak, a tool that supports arm64e devices running iOS & iPadOS 15.0-15.1.1.

This means that Zebra will also never run on this jailbreak, forcing users to use Saily instead.

We made a step-by-step tutorial showcasing how you can install TrollStore on checkm8-compatible A9-A11 chip-equipped iPhones and iPads running iOS & iPadOS 14.0-15.4.1, 15.5 betas 1-4, and 15.6 betas 1-5.

This method will require DFU mode and does not work on arm64e devices (iPhone XR and later).

You can check out that tutorial for yourself if you have a compatible device and would like to use TrollStore to perma-sign apps.
