Odyssey Team says mitigations for recently-discovered data loss & forced update issues coming soon

It was only a few days ago that the Odyssey Team acknowledged the discovery of a serious bug on iOS 14 that could cause data loss and/or forced iOS updates.

As such, the Odyssey Team recommended that users of newer versions of the Taurine jailbreak revert to Taurine version 1.0.4, as both versions 1.0.5 and 1.0.6 appeared to exacerbate this issue one way or another.

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.

iPhone No Delete Option for App on Home Screen

Over recent weeks, a strange issue has popped up for some iPhone users. Not only are they unable to delete apps from their iPhone, but there is no Delete option whatsoever.

If you or someone you know are experiencing this problem, we have two ways to fix this issue that have worked for others.

How to fix Apple TV 4K remote lag

After recently switching to a new Apple TV 4K, I encountered an issue that my previous Apple TV didn't have. Specifically, I would experience constant navigation lag when using the trackpad of the Siri remote.

The symptoms would be pretty obvious. As I was navigating any area of the user interface, whether it would be the Home Screen, Settings, or even scrubbing in an app, I would run into a laggy navigation that would create an inconsistent behavior. Swiping on the trackpad would sometimes take a few seconds to register on the screen, and then all the sudden after a short freeze, navigation would resume, but jump all over the place.
