Taurine jailbreak users advised to use v1.0.4 following discovery of data loss/forced update bugs

Taurine jailbreak users may want to backtrack their jailbreak from version 1.0.5 or 1.0.6 to version 1.0.4 pending an announcement shared early Wednesday morning by Odyssey Team member @23Aaron_.

In the announcement, which was echoed on in several different places including the Sileo / Taurine / Odyssey Discord channel, the @OsysseyTeam_ Twitter page, and even on /r/jailbreak, we learn that these versions of Taurine (1.0.5 and 1.0.6) exacerbate an issue in stock iOS that can result in data loss and forced iOS updates.

WiFiNameBugFix protects jailbreakers from the newly discovered malformed Wi-Fi name bug

Another notable bug was discovered and publicized just over the weekend by security researcher Carl Schou in which the presence of a malformed Wi-Fi network name, also known as the SSID, could ‘permanently’ disable an iPhone’s ability to view and connect to nearby Wi-Fi networks. It’s not the first time a Wi-Fi name glitch has affected iPhones, which understandably raises some eyebrows.

Citing the security researcher, the bug would be triggered if the iPhone comes within range of a Wi-Fi network or personal hotspot with the offending name or SSID. Consequently, the Settings app’s Wi-Fi toggle switch becomes disabled and grayed out, preventing the user from turning it back on. Not even resetting the iPhone’s network settings fixes this, compelling the iPhone owner to effectively restore the device to factory settings.

Arbitrary code execution achieved on iOS 14.5.1 and below, write-up purportedly coming at a later date

Apple just yesterday released iOS & iPadOS 14.6 to the general public to lay the groundwork for Apple Music’s upcoming lossless playback option, support Apple Card Family, and more. But that's not all...

Also worth noting is that iOS & iPadOS 14.6 patched a number of security vulnerabilities, including one that purportedly allowed security researcher @xerub to gain arbitrary code execution by simply parsing a carefully crafted certificate.
