The Chimera jailbreak tool for iOS 12 devices received a rare update late Thursday night to version 1.6.4.
In a somewhat unexpected move, Apple on Thursday released iOS 12.5.5, a small firmware update for older iPhones, iPads, and iPod touches that are incapable of running iOS or iPadOS 13 and later.
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.
Team unc0ver is back at it once again following a long pause in updates after launching an updated version of the unc0ver jailbreak tool for all iOS & iPadOS versions spanning 11.0-14.3. Today’s update brings the unc0ver jailbreak tool up to version 6.2.0.
Hacker and unc0ver lead developer Pwn20wnd announced the updated version of the jailbreak via Twitter this Saturday afternoon.
Nobody likes it when their iPhone gets stolen, either by pranksters or actual thieves, and while Apple’s Find My app can certainly help you track it down, it’s limited in its feature-centric capacity.
iOS developer Elias Sfeir knows this, and that’s why he spent the time to make a popular jailbreak tweak known as No2Theft. Today, we’re excited to share that No2Theft4 — the fourth iteration of this handy anti-theft extension — is now available for all pwned iOS 12-14 devices.
If your jailbreak depends on the Sileo package manager for installing jailbreak tweaks and extensions, then today might be a good idea to launch the app and refresh your sources.
It’s been a hot minute since the checkra1n jailbreak tool received its last update, and given how much has changed since then, it was only a matter of time before it would receive one.
The latest update comes to us this Thursday afternoon in the form of checkra1n version 0.12.3 with official support for up to iOS & iPadOS 14.5 and preliminary support for Apple’s latest M1-equipped Macs along with various bug fixes.
If you’re using a jailbreak that utilizes CoolStar’s libhooker tweak injection method, be it Chimera for iOS 12, Odyssey for iOS or iPadOS 13, Taurine for iOS or iPadOS 14, or Odysseyra1n for any firmware ranging from iOS 12 to iOS or iPadOS 14, then it would be advisable to launch the Sileo package manager and refresh your sources this morning.
Upon doing so, you should take notice of an updated iteration of libhooker, which appears to have been updated to version 1.6.0.
If you’re taking advantage of a jailbreak that uses the Sileo package manager by default, then you’re already enjoying pleasant aesthetics that look and feel like they belong on the latest versions of iOS and iPadOS.
But let’s say you wanted to change those aesthetics in one way or another; what would you do then? You could petition the Sileo Team to make changes, or you could install a jailbreak tweak to accomplish the same task.
The fabled Sileo package manager, which was once endemic to jailbreaks such as Chimera, Odyssey, and Taurine, is now officially available for all modern jailbreak solutions, including the likes of checkra1n and unc0ver, without the requirement of installing the Odysseyra1n script or the Procursus bootstrap.
Given just how frequently we’re asked how to get the Sileo package manager alongside Cydia on checkra1n or unc0ver without unwanted hacks or substantial jailbreak-changing commitments, we decided to take this unique opportunity to show you how to use the new Sileo installer for the checkra1n and unc0ver jailbreaks.
Reddit has announced that its official mobile app for iOS no longer works on the iPhone 6 and older because it now requires iOS 13.0 or later to function.
Anyone using the Chimera jailbreak for iOS 12, the Odyssey jailbreak for iOS 13, the Taurine jailbreak for iOS 14, or the Odysseyra1n bootstrap on a checkra1n’d device will almost certainly want to launch the included Sileo package manager and refresh their sources this morning, as it appears that a new version of libhooker is now available in the form of version 1.5.5.
Libhooker is the premiere tweak injection method for the aforementioned jailbreaks, and this means that all your jailbreak tweaks and extensions depend on it to hook into system processes and make their intended magic happen.
