Tihmstar has done it again! He has just released a new iOS 10 jailbreak for 32-bit devices. Here’s how you can download it for your iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.
How h3lix jailbreak works
h3lix is a jailbreak tool based on Siguza’s v0rtex exploit for iOS 10 firmware. It is developed by the eminent developer, Tihmstar.
It is immensely useful for users who own a 32-bit device. All 32-bit devices are now jailbroken for life!
This will also be the last jailbreak for 32-bit devices ever since they are now completely obsolete. You can now jailbreak these legacy devices on iOS 8, 9 and 10 as well.
It uses the standard sideload installation procedure just like Yalu jailbreak. Here’s the complete installation procedure for this tool.
But before you move on, keep in mind that this tool is tested only on iPhone 5 running iOS 10.3.3.
- iPhone 5
- iPhone 5c
- iPad (4th generation)
- No 32-bit model compatible with iOS 10
This is a universal jailbreak and supports all versions starting from iOS 10 to 10.3.3. Here’s the full list of iOS versions this tool supports –
- RC 4 (latest)
- A compatible 32-bit iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch
- A computer running Windows, macOS, or Linux
- Internet connection
