Those following the Fugu14 untether that security researcher Linus Henze released just last month will likely be happy to hear that it has been updated again with notable improvements.
It’s Halloween evening, but a dedicated Pwn20wnd just took to Twitter to announce the release of an updated version of the unc0ver jailbreak tool.
If you haven’t heard about the Fugu14 untether and how the unc0ver jailbreak now supports it, then you’d be inviting the age-old question of whether you live under a rock or not. And now that the latest version of AltStore (v1.4.8) can bundle the Fugu14 untether with the latest version of the semi-untethered unc0ver jailbreak tool, lots of people with compatible devices are jumping onboard.
If you have a Fugu14 untether-compatible device and you’re interested in using it to untether your unc0ver jailbreak, then you’re in luck because recent updates to AltStore, Fugu14, unc0ver have tied it all together to make the installation process easy and straightforward.
If you’ve been following along with all the latest jailbreak hubbub, then you undoubtedly witnessed Linus Henze releasing his highly anticipated Fugu14 untether last Sunday. Shortly after that happened, hacker and jailbreak developer Pwn20wnd updated the unc0ver jailbreak tool to version 7.0.0 with preliminary support for Fugu14.
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.
Not long after security researcher Linus Henze released a much-anticipated untether for the jailbreak community to take advantage of on certain versions of iOS & iPadOS 14, hacker and unc0ver lead developer Pwn20wnd acted quickly to launch a new version of his jailbreak tool, and it wasn’t just a coincidence.
It’s officially Sunday October 24th, and as many avid jailbreakers-at-heart have been waiting for, security researcher Linus Henze has made good on a promise to release an untether that supports up to and including iOS & iPadOS 14.5.1 right out of the box despite a minor postponement this week that was intended to resolve a few bugs prior to releasing.
A small update surfaced this Tuesday evening for everyone that has been avidly looking forward to the public release of Linus Henze’s jailbreak untether for iOS & iPadOS 14.5.1 and below.
If you’ve had your eyes glued to jailbreak community developments amid all the talk of untethers recently, then you’re not alone, and we’re especially excited to share that you’re in for some good news.
Excitement is swirling around in the jailbreak community Monday evening after hacker and iOS developer @__spv took to Twitter to share thought-provoking Tweets related to untethered jailbreaks.
Untethered jailbreaks are something of a rarity these days, with most modern jailbreaks being either semi-tethered or semi-untethered variants instead. But a teaser by security researcher Linus Henze just one week ago manifested at least some hope that the community could witness one again soon, at least for the likes of iOS & iPadOS 14.5.1 and below.
And speaking of untethered jailbreaks, Odyssey Team lead developer CoolStar announced via the Sileo / Taurine / Odyssey Discord channel Monday evening that they had successfully achieved arbitrary code execution in a native iOS/iPadOS application after conducting a full reboot of the device. This is, of course, the hallmark feature of an untethered jailbreak.
