Many Taurine jailbreak users are content with how their iPhones and iPads turn out post-jailbreak.

Just yesterday, security researcher Linus Henze released his much anticipated Fugu14 untether for iOS & iPadOS 14.5.1 and below. Just minutes later, Pwn20wnd published unc0ver v7.0.0 with preliminary support for the untether, assuming users wanted to install it manually.
Just a couple of days ago, the Odyssey Team shared that it was already investing in test devices for iOS & iPadOS 15 jailbreak development. The announcement was accompanied by a photograph of an iPod touch that had been custom engraved with the words “Odyssey Team” on the back.
More recently, Odyssey Team lead developer CoolStar took to the Sileo / Taurine / Odyssey Discord channel to share that libhooker — the tweak injection method utilized by the Chimera, Odyssey, and Taurine jailbreaks for iOS 12, 13, and 14 respectively — was mostly working on iOS 15 beta 8.
Anyone that uses the Taurine jailbreak on their iOS or iPadOS 14.0-14.3 device might be intrigued to know that a newer version of the tool is now available.
