CoolStar teases libhooker mostly working on iOS 15 beta 8

Just a couple of days ago, the Odyssey Team shared that it was already investing in test devices for iOS & iPadOS 15 jailbreak development. The announcement was accompanied by a photograph of an iPod touch that had been custom engraved with the words “Odyssey Team” on the back.

More recently, Odyssey Team lead developer CoolStar took to the Sileo / Taurine / Odyssey Discord channel to share that libhooker — the tweak injection method utilized by the Chimera, Odyssey, and Taurine jailbreaks for iOS 12, 13, and 14 respectively — was mostly working on iOS 15 beta 8.

New libhooker v1.6.9 beta 1 build available to jailbreakers for public testing

If you use any of the CoolStar-led jailbreaks, including Chimera for iOS 12, Odyssey for iOS & iPadOS 13, or Taurine for iOS & iPadOS 14, then there’s a good chance that you’re using libhooker for tweak injection, which is the intricate process that lets installed jailbreak tweaks work their magic on your handset’s operating system.

While CoolStar regularly updates libhooker with improvements, CoolStar just this past weekend opted to launch a public beta of a new libhooker build dubbed libhooker v1.6.9 beta 1 to allow voluntary testers to try the latest features before they roll out to the general public by way of an official update.

CoolStar updates libhooker Configurator to v1.2 with support for iOS 12 & other improvements

At the start of the year, CoolStar launched a standalone libhooker Configurator app that could be used to fine-tune the native libhooker tweak injection method on the Odyssey and Taurine jailbreaks.

The libhooker Configurator app has received several updates since its initial release, but a new build launched just this weekend in the form of version 1.2 might be especially intriguing – especially for anyone using the Chimera jailbreak.
