Q2. What is the release date?

Q3. Which devices are compatible?

- iPod Touch 6
- iPad Pro 12.9
- iPhone 8
- iPhone X
- Apple TV 4 (4th generation)
- Apple TV 4k (5th generation)
All other 64-bit devices such as iPhone 5s, 6 and 7 are also supported.
Q4. Will this tool contain Cydia?
A. No, there are several reasons as to why this tool won’t contain Cydia.
- Firstly, Morpheus hates Cydia.
- Integrating Cydia requires a bypass for Sandbox hook. The developer doesn’t wish to blow it on a public release just sp Apple can close it within a few days.
- Moreover, Substrate still requires an update and even if he integrates Cydia, it won’t let you install tweaks.
With that being said, the developer is working to integrate it and trying to get Saurik onboard.
Q5. What will this tool allow me to do?
A. This tool is a full jailbreak and contains the following components –
- Root filesystem access
- Sandbox escape
- Ability to run unsigned binaries
- Code injection
Q6. Will this jailbreak support downgrading to older versions?
A. No, Jonathan Levin is not blowing up 0-day exploits on this tool.
Q7. Is an iCloud bypass possible with this tool?
A. According to the developer, this jailbreak doesn’t use a powerful exploit and, hence, this is not possible.
Q8. Will this tool be open source?
A. Yes, Jonathan will open source the code, but with a license.
Q9. Can we port it to iOS 10.x.x and tvOS 10?
A. Yes, developers can port it to iOS 10 and tvOS 10 firmware with the right kernel_task port and offsets.
Ian Beer’s async_wake exploit is compatible only with iOS 11. Therefore, it will not work out of the box with iOS 10 and we still need Siguza’s v0rtex exploit for a port.
Q10. Will this tool work on my device or will I need offsets?
A. You will require offsets for your device if they are not present in the tool. Once the tool goes public, any developer will easily be able to do it.
Q11. How can I prepare my device for this upcoming tool?
A. Here’s how you can prepare your device for this tool –
- Ensure your device is on iOS 11.1.2 or below.
- Update iTunes.
- Sit tight.
