When Apple released iOS & iPadOS 17.0.1 just over a week ago, we also touched on comments made by TrollStore lead developer Lars Fröder (@opa334dev), who claimed that a bug possibly similar to the one used by TrollStore had been patched in iOS & iPadOS 16.7 and 17.0.
Get ready for a blast from the past; only, this is actual news in 2023. When we received a tip email about a new iPhone 4 jailbreak coming out, our staff looked at it cross-eyed for a moment, but we quickly realized that it was a serious tip.
If you’ve been following along so far, then you wouldn’t heard about how the Odyssey Team’s iOS 14-centric Taurine jailbreak recently picked up support for iOS & iPadOS 14.4-14.8.1 thanks to the kfd exploit, but a few things have happened since then.
At the start of the week, the Odyssey Team released an updated version of the Taurine jailbreak to add support for iOS & iPadOS 14.4-14.8.1.
If you were a huge fan of this past week’s Apple event and loved everything about what you saw and what Apple announced, then chances are you might appreciate a new add-on for the MacDirtyCow & kfd exploits dubbed AppleEvent Lock 2023 by iOS developer Kumiki.
Supervised mode is an important thing for not only prospective jailbreakers, but for folks who want to upgrade to unsigned firmware using the DelayOTA method to take advantage of kernel exploits that make add-ons possible, with two recent examples being MacDirtyCow for iOS & iPadOS 15.0-16.1.2 and kfd for iOS & iPadOS 16.0-16.6 beta 1.
Adding customized color schemes to an iPhone or iPad’s native user interface is a great way to show off that you’ve taken control of your handset from Apple and made it your own.
If you use a lot of Emojis when you type to people and you’re interested in an enhanced Emoji font for your device, then you might take a liking to a new add-on called JoyPixels by iOS developers HackZy and PoomSmart for the MacDirtyCow and kfd exploits for iOS & iPadOS 15.0-16.1.2 and 16.0-16.6 beta 1 respectively.
Cluckabunga, the all-in-one system customization app for kfd exploit-vulnerable devices running iOS & iPadOS 16.0-16.6 beta 1 and the successor to the Cowabunga app of similar nature for the MacDirtyCow exploit for older iterations of iOS & iPadOS, received an update Monday morning that may have gone unnoticed amid all the noise regarding Apple’s iOS & iPadOS 17 software updates.
The Odyssey Team’s aging Taurine jailbreak tool, originally designed for iOS & iPadOS 14.0-14.3 devices only, has recently started picking up support for later iterations of iOS & iPadOS 14.
If you weren’t already aware, iOS & iPadOS 17 bring new ringtones to the iPhone and iPad for the first time in several years, and while you can always add third-party ringtones to your device regardless of what iOS or iPadOS version you’re running, you might still want those new ringtones even if you’re using an older version of iOS or iPadOS.
Cluckabunga, an all-in-one system customization app for iPhones and iPads exploitable via the kfd exploit — namely arm64e variants running iOS or iPadOS 16.0-16.6 beta 1 — received a minor update on Saturday.
