Unc0ver jailbreak updated to v6.2.0 with major stability & reliability improvements for iOS 14

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.

No2Theft4 alerts iPhone owners to thieves, takes their photo, and sends location data to email or SMS

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.

Checkra1n jailbreak updated to version 0.12.3 with M1 Mac support, iOS 14.5 support, & bug fixes

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.

Libhooker updated to v1.6.0 to fix Caller ID & Call Blocking app bug

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.

Give Sileo floating package depiction headers with uki

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.

How to get Sileo on your checkra1n or unc0ver jailbreak (the right way)

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.

Libhooker updated to v1.5.5 with better battery life, more hooking support, & other improvements

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.

Alt5tore simplifies the process of updating unc0ver directly from the AltStore app

If like so many other jailbreakers out there, you depend on the unc0ver tool to keep your iPhone or iPad pwned, then we’ve got some good news for you – especially if you take advantage of AltStore to install unc0ver on your device.

As many AltStore users already know, the app hosts download links to some of Riley Testut’s software, including the Delta emulator app for various Nintendo-centric systems and the Clip clipboard manager. Both can both be installed with the tap of a button directly from the AltStore app as long as you’re connected to the same Wi-Fi network as AltServer on your computer.

Substitute updated to version 2.0.10 with more bug fixes

Substitute, the tweak injection method used by the unc0ver jailbreak (and optionally on checkra1n devices), received an update this week that officially brought the package up to version 2.0.10.

Much like the previous update that launched around a month ago, Substitute version 2.0.10 brings bug fixes to improve the package’s performance and stability.

How to use Betelguese to install Odysseyra1n on a checkra1n’d device

A brand-new one-click application for macOS called Betelguese by @23Aaron_ and @hbkirb is now available that lets checkra1n’d iPhone and iPad users install Odysseyra1n on their handset via the convenience of a graphical user interface (GUI) as opposed to pasting lengthy and complicated commands into a traditional command line interface (CLI).

When Betelguese is complete, your checkra1n jailbreak transforms into Odysseyra1n, which means that it will utilize the Procursus bootstrap with Sileo as the default package manager and libhooker as the tweak injection method. These will replace Cydia and Cydia Substrate or Substitute for tweak injection — the process that handles your jailbreak tweaks — whichever of the latter you might’ve had installed at the time.
