Follow along as we cover the latest development surrounding TrollStore.
When Apple released iOS & iPadOS 17.0.1 just over a week ago, we also touched on comments made by TrollStore lead developer Lars Fröder (@opa334dev), who claimed that a bug possibly similar to the one used by TrollStore had been patched in iOS & iPadOS 16.7 and 17.0.
If you haven’t already heard, there’s another package manager app for the MacDirtyCow and kfd exploits in town, and it’s called PureKFD. This project allows you to browse a whole host of repositories that support Misaka and Picasso-compatible packages.

Many of our readers might be familiar with Cowabunga, an all-inclusive system customization app for both jailbroken and non-jailbroken devices that works by way of TrollStore or the MacDirtyCow exploit.
We previously showed our readers how to install TrollStore on non-jailbroken iPhones and iPads running iOS & iPadOS 15.0-15.1.1 with Sideloadly and TrollInstaller, but project developer Lars Fröder (@opa334) has since recommended a different method for installing TrollStore that works on all arm64e (A12 and newer) devices running iOS & iPadOS 14.0-15.4.1, 15.5 betas 1-4, and 15.6 betas 1-5 as well as arm64 (A9-A11) devices running iOS & iPadOS 15.0-15.4.1 and 15.5 betas 1-4.
Most of the jailbreak community is starting to move to the rootless dynamic, and for users of rootful jailbreaks in the past, this may cause some growing pains for users of those jailbreak tweaks that haven’t yet been updated to support rootless.
In a previous tutorial, we showed our readers how they can install TrollStore on various devices using the now deprecated TrollInstaller method, but if you have a checkm8-compatible arm64 device (iPhone X or older), then you may use the SSH Ramdisk method to install TrollStore on your device.
If you’re interested in an application for your iPhone or iPad that can analyze every other app on your device and spit out interesting details about them, then you might find a utility called AppIndex by iOS developer Serena to be of interest.

TrollStore is a great way to enjoy hacks and UI enhancements on both jailbroken and non-jailbroken iOS 14.0-15.4.1 (and some 15.5 and 15.6 beta builds), and a new and free TrollStore-compatible add-on called SecondHand by iOS developer LeminLimez certainly grabbed our attention.
Cowabunga, one of the most popular all-in-one UI customization apps for TrollStore and MacDirtyCow exploit-susceptible devices, was updated to version 8.1.0 on Sunday with an impressive list of additional improvements.
