Dopamine updates

The Dopamine jailbreak received updates to versions 1.0.1, 1.0.2, and 1.0.3 this week with minor bug fixes and improvements. Those updates are discussed in the following news pieces:

XinaA15 and Dopamine compatibility

XinaA15 and Dopamine on the same device.

As it turns out, both the XinaA15 and Dopamine jailbreaks can be safely installed on the same device, assuming the device meets the firmware criteria of both tools. This was confirmed by Dopamine lead developer Lars Fröder.

Both jailbreaks are for certain versions of iOS or iPadOS 15 on A12-A15 devices, and since one works in a rootful manner and the other works in a rootless manner, they won’t affect one another.

Zebra updated to v1.1.3

CarBridge adds rootless support

Various apps that work with CarBridge.

The latest update to CarBridge now allows jailbreakers who use the rootless dynamic on iOS 15 or 16 to use their favorite apps on their CarPlay-enabled head unit whether CarPlay supports them officially or not.

This powerful tweak adds a lot of flexibility to iPhone users in the car, but with great power comes great responsibility, and users shouldn’t attempt to control their iPhone while driving.
