Those following the Fugu14 untether that security researcher Linus Henze released just last month will likely be happy to hear that it has been updated again with notable improvements.
If you have a Fugu14 untether-compatible device and you’re interested in using it to untether your unc0ver jailbreak, then you’re in luck because recent updates to AltStore, Fugu14, unc0ver have tied it all together to make the installation process easy and straightforward.
After launching AltServer v1.4.7 this week with support for Apple’s new iOS & iPadOS 15.1 and macOS 12 Monterey mobile and desktop operating systems, project developer Riley Testut just this evening released an update for AltStore – the iOS & iPadOS app that complements AltServer to create a seamless app side-loading experience for iPhone and iPad users.
If you’ve been following along with all the latest jailbreak hubbub, then you undoubtedly witnessed Linus Henze releasing his highly anticipated Fugu14 untether last Sunday.

A small update surfaced this Tuesday evening for everyone that has been avidly looking forward to the public release of Linus Henze’s jailbreak untether for iOS & iPadOS 14.5.1 and below.
