What is g0blin?
g0blin is an iOS 10.3-10.3.3 jailbreak for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch devices with 64-bit chipsets. It is developed by the eminent developers Sticktron and Jake James.
It currently works on the following versions only –
g0blin utilizes Luca Todesco’s yalu102 KPP bypass and Siguza’s v0rtex exploit. This tool is a work in progress but you can use Cydia now as Jake added the “jailbreakd” daemon to this tool.
Cydia and Substrate are now working like they should. This tool doesn’t require a Substrate update.
Here’s the complete compatibility list of this tool with various firmware versions and devices.
- iPhone 5S (10.3-10.3.3)
- iPhone 6/6 Plus (10.3-10.3.3)
- iPhone 6S/6S Plus (10.3-10.3.3)
- iPhone SE (10.3-10.3.3)
- iPad Mini 3 (10.3-10.3.3)
- iPad Mini 4 (10.3-10.3.3)
- iPad Air 2 (10.3-10.3.3)
- iPad Pro 12.9-inch 1st generation (10.3.3)
- As of now, a few devices and firmware are not supported due to missing offsets. Once the developers add the necessary offsets, you will be able to use this tool. If you have an incompatible device or iOS version, just wait for an update.
- Devices having a chipset different than A7-A9 are incompatible.
- iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 plus are incompatible as yalu102’s KPP bypass doesn’t support them.
- iPad Pro 12.9-inch 2nd generation, iPad Pro 10.5-inch, and iPad 5 are not supported.
- iPhone 8/8+ and iPhone X are incompatible as they ship with iOS 11 only.
The developer will add support for these devices in the next version –
- iPad Pro 12.9-inch 1st gen (10.3-10.3.2)
- iPad Mini 2
- iPad Pro 9.7-inch

How to jailbreak iOS 10.3-10.3.3 with g0blin
Step 1 Connect your iOS device to your computer.
Step 2 Start Cydia Impactor tool. If you don’t have it already, download it from this link.
Step 3 Download the g0blin version 1 IPA file from the link above to your desktop.
Step 4 Drag this file onto Impactor’s window to start the sideloading process.
Step 5 Impactor will now ask you for your Apple ID details. Enter your email and password.
Step 6 Wait for it to complete the installation process. Once the sideload process is over, the app will appear on your home screen.
Step 7 Disconnect your device from the computer.
Step 8 Opening the app will result in the “Untrusted Developer certificate” error. Therefore, you must go to Settings > General > Profiles & Device Management and verify this app’s certificate first.
Step 9 Run the g0blin jailbreak application from your home screen. If it reboots your device or doesn’t work at the very first try, keep retrying for at least 10-15 times.
Step 10 Wait for it to inject the exploit onto your device. Once it’s done, it will display the following message.
Step 11 You can now run Cydia from your home screen.
- Remember, the app will alert you about when it’s safe to open Cydia. DO NOT respring via Cydia.
- You must use the respring button in the g0blin jailbreak application to ensure tweaks and MobileSubstrate work properly (this applies only to v3 users).
- If you are using version 3, constantly switch between Cydia and the jailbreak app in the app switcher. This will ensure Cydia works instead of showing a white screen.
- As of now, applications that require root access such as Filza are not fully compatible. The upcoming versions will hopefully fix this issue.
- If you are still using v3 or older versions, upgrade to the file by xPeeks.
xPeeks version users
- You don’t need to respring.
- Filza now works.
- If you are getting a white screen in Cydia, simply press “i” icon at the top. Enable force-reinstall bootstrap and save. Run the jailbreak app again.
How to re-jailbreak your device after reboot
After each reboot, Cydia and all your tweaks will stop working. Therefore, you must re-jailbreak your device to make them work again.
Since a lot of users were asking about how to re-enable the jailbreak, here’s a step-by-step tutorial that lets you do just that.
- Open the g0blin app.
- Press the Jailbreak button.
- Your tweaks will now start working again.
- After every 7 days, you must sign the app with Cydia Impactor again by following the steps above. You can also use Ext3nder tool for on-device signing without a computer.
