After brief server-related hiccup, palera1n bootstrap & repository operations now up and running again

If you were experiencing any problems trying to use the palera1n-c jailbreak this past weekend, then you probably weren’t alone. According to announcement shared in the palera1n Discord server on Saturday, the team was unaware they were using a Google Cloud trial to host stuff that had finally expired.

A problem was identified with the palera1n team's server hosting.

The expiration meant that plenty of jailbreakers who used palera1n or palera1n-c might’ve experienced problems while trying to jailbreak or use the jailbreak’s integrated services, such as bootstrapping or attempting to access the palera1n repository via a package manager app.

The palera1n team announces that its server hosting is back up.

Fortunately, the palera1n team was prompt about fixing the issue. In a Tweet shared Sunday afternoon and depicted above, the palra1n team said they’ve revived their servers and that bootstrapping devices and accessing the associated palera1n repository should once again be working properly for all users.

TL;DR, if you were having problems jailbreaking with palera1n or palera1n-c on Saturday, or accessing the palera1n repository, then you should be good to go again starting Sunday afternoon and can try again.

While hiccups like these are rare, they do happen from time to time. When it comes to web hosting, having a reliable online server host is important for this reason. Unfortunately, since the hosting was based on a trial initially, it was bound to expire and would have required the palera1n team’s attention sooner or later.

The palera1n-c jailbreak supports A9-A11 chip-equipped handsets running iOS & iPadOS 15.0-16.x. Since it uses the hardware-based checkm8 bootrom exploit to target these devices, the exploit can’t be patched and these devices can effectively be jailbroken for life.
