In an announcement shared early this morning via the Sileo / Taurine / Odyssey Discord channel, Odyssey Team lead developer CoolStar divulged that an upcoming premium jailbreak package dubbed libhooker Pro would soon be made available to the general public.

Anyone who uses the Chimera jailbreak for iOS 12, Odyssey jailbreak for iOS & iPadOS 13, Taurine jailbreak for iOS or iPadOS 14.0-14.3, or Odysseyra1n on a checkra1n-compatible device should know that libhooker is the tweak injection method that facilitates tweak-centric process hooking on these platforms. With that in mind, the concept of a pro version of libhooker is rather thought-provoking.
