What is doubleH3lix?
doubleH3lix is a jailbreak tool developed for 64-bit devices running iOS 10-10.3.3 firmware. It is developed by Siguza and Tihmstar.
It is based on Siguza’s v0rtex exploit, KPP bypass, and a patchfinder that provides support for all versions out-of-the-box.
Think of it as a 64-bit version of the original h3lix jailbreak.
Moreover, all issues present in g0blin jailbreak like faulty GPS and buggy Touch ID are not present in this tool. The developers also intend to open source this tool sometime in the future.
All these features make it a solid alternative to g0blin, yalu102, and even Saigon. Therefore, if you are currently using any of these tools, you might want to switch to this improved jailbreak tool.
