Just last week, SakuRα Development launched an all-new semi-untethered jailbreak tool dubbed kok3shi for 64-bit iOS 9.3-9.3.6 devices. It was a bit of a surprise given that most of today’s jailbreak-centric news revolves around iOS & iPadOS 13 or 14.
But as is the case with any initial jailbreak release, it would t be long before kok3shi received its first update. As such, SakuRα Development released a second public beta version of the kok3shi jailbreak, officially bringing it up to version 1.0 beta 2.
While much of today’s jailbreak-centric news revolves around iOS & iPadOS 13 and 14, every so often an older jailbreak tool gets an update that benefits end users on older firmware versions.
Today offers a rare example of the above sentiment after the Phoenix semi-untethered jailbreak tool for 32-bit devices running iOS 9.3.5-9.3.6 received an update to version 6 — the first in almost half a year.
Much of today’s jailbreak-centric news revolves around iOS & iPadOS 13 or 14, with one of the only lone exceptions being the iOS 12-based Chimera jailbreak, which recently received one of its final updates. Still, it’s not completely unheard of to see jailbreak developers work on or release projects related to legacy versions of iOS.
The latest example would be a new jailbreak tool dubbed kok3shi by SakuRα Development, which was only released just this evening. This jailbreak appears to be semi-untethered just like the tried-and-true Odyssey and unc0ver tools are, however unlike those tools, it supports only 64-bit devices running iOS 9.3.2-9.3.5.
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 iOS platform received a myriad of changes over the years, with many of those being functional changes and a smaller number being purely cosmetic. Perhaps one of the most iconic changes can be attributed to iOS’ Now Playing interface, which has evolved an awful lot since the days of iOS 9.
Unfortunately, not everyone appreciates all of the latest changes, and some even wish that the iOS 9 Now Playing interface would make an unlikely comeback. The good news, however, is that a new and free jailbreak tweak called NineMusic by iOS developer Minh-Ton can make this happen, at least on pwned handsets.
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.
Upon refreshing your Cydia sources this week, you should take note of a new free jailbreak tweak called NavAway by iOS developer Wh0ba.
Just as the tweak’s name suggests, NavAway makes your iPhone’s navigation bar magically disappear as you scroll down in specific scrollable applications. When you begin scrolling back up in the app, NavAway intelligently reveals the navigation bar again for your convenience.
Twitter yesterday quietly bumped its iPhone and iPad app on App Store to version 7.3. Aside from a pair of user improvements, the update has removed support for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch devices powered by the iOS 9 software or older.
