A new on-device offset finder has just been released by an unknown developer. Here’s how you can download and use it.
What is SHOFF?
To find offsets for your device, you need access to the right tools, then compile them and finally decrypt the kernelcache. Finding offsets using this method is extremely time-consuming and tedious.
This is where this new tool comes in.
SHOFF utility is an on-device iOS kernelcache decryptor and automatic offsets.json finder. It is developed by developer Viktor Oreshkin aka stek29.
The main advantage of this utility is that you don’t need to use a computer. Moreover, it is available for download in the form of a Cydia tweak, which makes it perfect for average users.
You can also SHOFF it on a computer, but that would again require compiling it. I recommend you stick to the tried and tested on-device route that is safer and easier.
Since the UntetherHomeDepot package is missing some offsets, you can use SHOFF to find them. Here’s a step-by-step tutorial on how to use this amazing tool.
- A jailbroken iPhone, iPad, and iPod
How to find Offsets for your device with SHOFF
Step 1 Open Cydia.
Step 2 Go to Sources tab and tap the Edit button at the top-right corner.
Step 3 Select Add and enter the URL of Viktor’s private Cydia repository – stek29.rocks/cyrepo
Step 4 Search for “SHOFF” Debian package and install it.
Step 5 Once you install it, you will need to run it using a Terminal emulator on your device. Undoubtedly, the best and easiest way to do that is to install MTerminal. You can download it from the default BigBoss Cydia repository.
Step 6 Open MTerminal from your home screen.
Step 7 Enter the following commands and press “Return” key after typing in each command –
That’s all there’s to it. The text starting with “0x” are your offsets. You can insert them with any tool that requires them or currently doesn’t possess them for your specific device and firmware combination.
