If you were following along yesterday, a bevy of updates to jailbreak-centric software with support for iOS & iPadOS 14.5 were released. This included checkra1n, Cydia Substrate, and Substitute to name a few.
But the updates didn’t stop there. Odyssey Team Web and App Developer @23Aaron_ pushed an update for the macOS-based Betelguese Odysseyra1n installer for checkra1n’d devices, officially bringing it up to version 1.1.
A brand-new one-click application for macOS called Betelguese by @23Aaron_ and @hbkirb is now available that lets checkra1n’d iPhone and iPad users install Odysseyra1n on their handset via the convenience of a graphical user interface (GUI) as opposed to pasting lengthy and complicated commands into a traditional command line interface (CLI).
When Betelguese is complete, your checkra1n jailbreak transforms into Odysseyra1n, which means that it will utilize the Procursus bootstrap with Sileo as the default package manager and libhooker as the tweak injection method. These will replace Cydia and Cydia Substrate or Substitute for tweak injection — the process that handles your jailbreak tweaks — whichever of the latter you might’ve had installed at the time.
Odysseyra1n is a custom Procursus-based bootstrap for checkra1n devices that installs Sileo for package management and libhooker for tweak injection. Previously, Odysseyra1n needed to be installed via Terminal with a command line interface. But that changes starting today with the release of Betelguese.
Betelguese is, in essence, a macOS-supported one-click Odysseyra1n installer for all iPhones and iPads running iOS or iPadOS 12, 13, or 14 that have already been jailbroken with checkra1n.
