Pwn20wnd releases re-written Osiris jailbreak for developers and other advanced users

iOS hacker Pwn20wnd was played an instrumental role in various iOS 11-centric projects in recent memory, including the Electra and unc0ver jailbreak tools and the Rollectra un-jailbreaking tool. As of this weekend, however, we can add the Osiris jailbreak tool to that list.

Pwn20wnd released a rewrite of the Osiris jailbreak tool for iOS 11.0-11.4 beta 3 Sunday afternoon. Osiris uses Ian Beer’s tried and true iOS 11 exploits to achieve a jailbreak on the aforementioned firmware versions, but unlike other jailbreak tools available already, it doesn’t install Cydia.

Rollectra/SemiRestore11 receives another update with safer execution methods

Hot off the heels of a Rollectra/SemiRestore11 update this Labor Day weekend, developer and ex-Electra Team member Pwn20wnd has released another update to the un-jailbreaking tool on Tuesday. The latest update brings the utility’s version number up to 1.1.2.-1.

In case you’re in need of a refresher, the update that dropped on Labor Day weekend added support for iOS 11.3-11.4.X devices that had been jailbroken with Electra. Furthermore, it added a new option for un-jailbreaking your handset without losing your user data.

Rollectra/SemiRestore11 update brings support for iOS 11.3-11.4.x, adds improvements

Electra is the primary way to achieve a jailbreak on iOS 11 these days, but it’s still a great idea to have an un-jailbreak tool handy just in case something goes wrong. Rollectra/SemiRestore11, released in July by former Electra Team member Pwn20wnd, quickly filled these shoes. It utilized APFS snapshots to revert any device pwned with Electra to a stock state.

As of this week, however, Pwn20wnd released an updated version of the tool. Version 1.1-2 is available both as an upgrade in Cydia and as a separate jailed package that can be side-loaded even when you aren’t in a jailbroken state.
