The jailbreak community has been on fire lately. Not only have all iOS & iPadOS 14.0-14.3 devices been made pwnable by both the tried and true unc0ver and brand new Taurine jailbreak tools, but the recent release of the kok3shi jailbreak made it possible for users of 64-bit iOS 9.3-9.3.5 devices to pwn their handsets as well.
Now, it seems a little more love is being provided for iOS 10 users as the Athenus Dev Team and w212 have teamed up to release ap0110, an auto-executing semi-untethered jailbreak for 32 and 64-bit iOS 10.x devices.
This is an introductory article which explains what futurerestore is and how it works, as well as how to follow our futurerestore guides to upgrade/downgrade your device.
Before attempting any of the guides, everyone should read this article. It explains whether the guides apply to you, and if they do, which ones you should follow, as well as making sure that you fulfil the requirements for it to work. Not everyone can use futurerestore.
This is Part 1 of a two-part guide on how to use futurerestore.
Before attempting this guide, everyone should read the introductory article, Guide to futurerestore: Introduction. It will explain whether this guide applies to you, as well as making sure that you fulfil the requirements for it to work.
If you currently have a jailbreak and you want to move to a different firmware with futurerestore’s generator mode, you must follow this guide first before following Part 2.
If you currently have no jailbreak, and you want to move to a different firmware with futurerestore’s Apnonce collision mode, you can skip this guide and head straight to Part 2. This method does not apply to most users.

With Apple's ever-turning signing machine, jailbreakers are forever wondering what the best strategy is for their device.
Should they stick with their jailbroken firmware or upgrade? If they're already without a jailbreak, which firmware version do they need to be on to make sure they get one? What do they need to do to be able to upgrade from a lower jailbroken firmware?
In this article, we'll go through what we consider the smartest options for each device and firmware version, so that you can make an informed decision. Please read the conclusion too, for additional tips which apply to all jailbreakers.
First off, this guide is only necessary for 64-bit devices which are currently jailbroken on old firmwares, such as iOS 9 and some versions of iOS 10. The jailbreaks for those firmwares did not always include a way to set a generator for use with futurerestore, and nonceEnabler provides that ability. Nearly all newer jailbreaks provide their own simpler ways of setting a generator, and they do not need to use nonceEnabler, nor this guide. If your device is not currently jailbroken on an old firmware such as the ones mentioned in this guide, and/or has its own method of setting a generator, refer instead to our main futurerestore guides.
The Installer 5 package manager is now officially out of beta, which means that all jailbreakers now have yet another option to pick from in terms of managing their handset’s favorite tweaks and extensions.
In this tutorial, we’ll show you the steps necessary to install the all-new Installer 5 package manager on any jailbroken device running iOS 10 through 13.
Jailbreakers haven’t even been able to blink their eyes lately without some sort of news regarding exploit or jailbreak tool updates, and as it would seem, there’s no sign that this will be slowing down anytime soon.
While the bulk of this news has dealt with adding support for newer firmware versions by way of updated and more efficient exploits, hacker and rootless JB 3.0 developer Jake James shook things up a bit this morning when he released updated versions of his Sock Port and Sock Port 2 tfp0 exploits with support for 64-bit devices running iOS 10.0-10.3.3:
Apple released the latest software version for iOS 12 earlier today, and the company also saw fit to update older versions of the mobile operating system as well.
If you just got finished jailbreaking your iPhone and you’ve been anticipating the idea of porting Android-style keyboard-centric haptic feedback over to your handset’s typing experience, then you just might come to appreciate a new jailbreak tweak called HapticKeys by iOS developer colecabral.
HapticKeys does exactly what it sounds like; like with most forms of haptic feedback, it provides a small amount of vibration each and every time you tap on any of the iOS keyboard’s buttons.
Veteran jailbreakers are likely familiar with a handy utility called Cydia Eraser, which Saurik released several years ago to help jailbreakers ‘un-jailbreak’ their pwned handsets without restoring and updating their firmware via iTunes. Saurik’s busy life has prevented him from updating Cydia Eraser for modern versions of iOS, but it now looks like there could be a light at the end of the tunnel.
iOS developer Sam Gardner, perhaps better known to the community
as Samg_is_a_ninja, took
to /r/jailbreak this weekend to tease a spectacular project that he has
been working on for nearly a year and a half, and he calls it Succession.
Many Android handsets offer an ounce of haptic feedback when you perform certain actions on the device, but haptic feedback is somewhat minimal on the iOS platform – mostly limited to when using 3D Touch.
If you have a jailbroken iPhone and are looking to receive more haptic feedback from various actions, then you might enjoy a new jailbreak tweak dubbed Vibrato by iOS developer Synnyg. This tweak can enable haptic feedback for nearly anything that you do.
