CoolStar updates libhooker to v1.3.0 with memory optimizations & more

Cydia Substrate isn’t the only tweak injector receiving new updates as of late. Libhooker, the premier tweak injection method for the iOS 13-based Odyssey jailbreak and for the Odysseyra1n script for the checkra1n jailbreak, just got a fresh upgrade to version 1.3.0 with some notable improvements.

Odyssey Team lead developer CoolStar announced the updated libhooker release Saturday night via Twitter, and further described the update and everything it brings in the official Discord channel:

Odyssey Team’s Hayden Seay teases image of iPhone being restored with an iPad

The slew of revitalizing jailbreak news recently is nothing short of exciting for anyone that’s heavily invested in the process of pwning of iPhones and iPads. Fortunately, it seems like there’s still a lot of exciting news and teasers to be witnessed by devoted members of the community.

Odyssey Team member Hayden Seay (also known by his online handle Diatrus) took to Twitter early Saturday morning to share a particularly captivating picture of what seems to be an iPhone getting its operating system restored via software running on an iPad:

CoolStar says Odyssey jailbreak for iOS 13.0-13.5 on A9-A13 could drop this week

Electra Team lead developer CoolStar took to Discord late last night to share that the team was working diligently on a new jailbreak tool dubbed Odyssey for A9-A13 devices running iOS 13.0-13.5. If you remember those teasers about Chimera13 in the distant past, then this appears to be that very jailbreak, albeit with a different name.

Citing the brief, the Odyssey jailbreak will ship with proprietary software including libhooker and the Sileo package manager. Furthermore, it will ship with Procursus and it’s expected to be inter-compatible with checkra1n devices that have used the Odysseyra1n script to enjoy the Odyssey bootstrap on those devices.

Whether you’re taking advantage of the Electra jailbreak for iOS 11 or the Chimera jailbreak for iOS 12, one thing is certain: you’ve got the Sileo package manager hiding out somewhere on your Home Screen. The same statement applies for those using the Chimera1n or Odysseyra1n bootstraps on the popular checkra1n jailbreak for iOS 12 & 13.

Regardless of which of the aforementioned setups you’re running on your pwned handset, it’s worth noting that the Sileo Team launched an updated beta version of the Sileo package manager Thursday afternoon with some serious speed improvements. The latest beta was announced via the Sileo Team’s official Twitter account just over an hour ago:
