CoolStar teases libhooker mostly working on iOS 15 beta 8

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.

Taurine jailbreak for iOS 14.0-14.3 updated to v1.1.0 various user experience improvements

The Odyssey Team is out with yet another update for its iOS & iPadOS 14-centric Taurine jailbreak Wednesday morning after only just recently launching version 1.0.7 with boot loop mitigations and startup repairs to combat consequential data loss and forced software updates.

The latest update, dubbed Taurine version 1.1.0, was released to address known bugs and incorporate stability improvements.

Taurine jailbreak users advised to use v1.0.4 following discovery of data loss/forced update bugs

Taurine jailbreak users may want to backtrack their jailbreak from version 1.0.5 or 1.0.6 to version 1.0.4 pending an announcement shared early Wednesday morning by Odyssey Team member @23Aaron_.

In the announcement, which was echoed on in several different places including the Sileo / Taurine / Odyssey Discord channel, the @OsysseyTeam_ Twitter page, and even on /r/jailbreak, we learn that these versions of Taurine (1.0.5 and 1.0.6) exacerbate an issue in stock iOS that can result in data loss and forced iOS updates.

Taurine jailbreak updated to version 1.0.5 with new features, bug fixes, and improvements

With a steady stream of jailbreak news and releases lately, it’s not overly surprising that we’re seeing an update for a popular jailbreak tool this afternoon.

The Odyssey Team published a fresh update for its iOS & iPadOS 14.0-14.3-centric Taurine jailbreak, this time bringing it up to version 1.0.5 to address bugs and improve performance of the jailbreak overall.

CoolStar announces upcoming libhooker Pro with premium features for jailbroken devices

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.
