Another day, another tweak. This new tweak aims to solve a critical problem that every jailbreaker faces at one point or the other. Here’s how it works.

How JailProtect works
We all have apps that lock us out after they detect jailbreak on our device. Generally, this happens with apps such as Paypal, Banking apps, etc that require a certain level of protection from hacks and tweaks.
This is where this new Cydia tweak comes in.
JailProtect Cydia tweak allows you to selectively disable Cydia Substrate for certain applications. It is developed eminent tweak developer and cracker Julio Verne.
What this does is, it disables Cydia Substrate whenever you launch a specific app. This renders its jailbreak detection mechanism useless and allows you to use it, like you normally would, without a jailbreak.
Apart from bypassing jailbreak detection, it also allows you to spoof your iOS firmware version easily.
This comes in handy when a certain app forces you to update to the latest update for security issues.
Once you install it on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, simply go to its Settings section to enable it for any application.
It is set to “Enabled” by default, however, you do need to enable it indicidually for different apps.
I don’t use any banking or a highly secure app on my iPad, but you get the drill, right?
Is JailProtect the best detection bypass?
What sets JailProtect apart from other bypass tweaks is its ability to work with almost all apps – Paypal, banking apps, you name it.
It is a plausible alternative for the following Cydia tweaks –
Even though it’s very powerful and is compatible with a wide range of apps, it’s still far from perfect.
As of now, several users have reported that it is not working with the following apps and games –
- Fate/Grand Order
- Fire Emblem Heroes
- Several local banking apps.
As always, Julio is looking into this issue and will promptly release a fix very soon.
If for some reason it doesn’t work with your banking app such as the one from TSB, you can try using a dedicated Flex patch. Flex has a lot of patches available and are developed specifically for an application.
Download JailProtect tweak
Just like Julio’s other tweaks, this is an absolute must-have for all jailbreakers alike. Highly recommended.
Although iOS 9 is not officially supported, you can still use it on that firmware.
JailProtect is available for download on Julioverne’s Cydia repo for free. It is compatible only with iOS 9 and 10.
