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 6 (latest)
- A compatible 32-bit iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch
- A computer running Windows, macOS, or Linux
- Internet connection
How to jailbreak iOS 10-10.3.3 with h3lix jailbreak
Step 1 Download Cydia Impactor utility from here.
Step 2 Download the IPA file using the direct download link above.
Step 3 Drag it onto Cydia Impactor’s window.
Step 4 Impactor will now ask you to enter your Apple ID details. Enter them in their respective fields.
Step 5 Allow it to sideload the jailbreak app on your device and just wait for a few seconds.
Step 6 The h3lix jailbreak app will now be on your home screen provided you did everything correctly.
Step 7 Before you open and run it, you must verify it by going to Settings > General > Profiles & Device Mangement. Just tap on your Apple ID email and then press Verify app.
Step 8 Run the app from your home screen and wait for it to inject the exploit.
Step 9 You can now run Cydia from your home screen. Here’s Cydia running on an iPhone 5 (iOS 10.3.3).
How to update from RC 1 to newer versions (RC 2)
- Restart your iPhone or iPad. This will put it in no-jailbreak mode.
- Sideload the new h3lix RC 2 IPA file using the download link above.
- Install it with Impactor as shown in steps 3-5.
- Run the app and wait for it to jailbreak your device.

my device not showing cydia after ‘run uicache’ ios 10.3.3 iphone 5c
Iphone 4 are 32 bit. Do they work?
Just check the compatibility list and if it’s not there, it won’t work.
Pls make this fully untethered jailbreak, that would be awsome.
There’s won’t be an untethered jailbreak because it uses a semi-untethered exploit only.

No I don,t have filza or ifile on my iPad. What should I do?
You must SSH into your device as shown here – SSH Tutorial.

How did you remove Cydia?
I had it running well when the jb first came out. I had cydia, was installling repos,tweaks, apps, everything was running fine. I had turned it off and rejailbreaked it a few times with no problems, then all of a sudden it stopped working. At first it said kernel failed, and now it goes all the way to starting daemon and reboots but with no jailbreak. I’m using iPad 4th Gen, running 10.3.3 please advise.
Hey, Aldo. Which versions are you running?
Hey I’m getting “kernelexploit failed” when running the jailbreak.
I’m on ios 10.1 using iPhone 5. Not sure if that’s software related.
Kep trying it again and enable Airplane mode.
