The wait continues for a user-friendly iOS & iPadOS 16 jailbreak designed for the general public, but the many projects currently under development raise hope for something to materialize in the future. Of course, when we say “user-friendly,” we mean things that aren’t intended only for developers. Project36 will allow users to access features including SSH, root access, MDM patch, and allow jailbreak tweak development.
The developers have posted an early preview demo on YouTube which shows the jailbreak working with SSH access. Support for tweaks is planned for the future. The developers have not announced any ETA or release date. But that’s exactly what a new announcement dubbed Project36 by iOS 16 developers Jan Fabel (@J4NF4) and md (@exploit3dguy) appears to be. In a Tweet, Fabel describes Project36 as a developer jailbreak for iOS & iPadOS 16 and later that’s based on the venerable checkm8 bootrom exploit.
Our step-by-step tutorial will show you how to use the checkra1n jailbreak tool.
Due to what devices can run iOS & iPadOS 16, this means that A9-A11-A13-15 devices will be the only ones supported by Project36. Since Project36 (not the final name), is a developer-focused jailbreak, it means that it will not feature a package manager, most tweaks might not work on it, and it will definitely not be stable. What’s more is the developer jailbreak will support features including, but not limited to: SSH access, Root access, MDM patch, and support for jailbreak tweaks, among other things.
Users with advanced technical knowledge should be the only ones touching this jailbreak with a ten-foot pole. Given how Project36 will be a developer-only jailbreak for iOS & iPadOS 16 and later, ordinary jailbreakers wouldn’t have much to gain from it apart from the fact that iOS developers might be able to use it to assist with updating their tweaks for the newer mobile operating system. That is, assuming it’s ever released.
Jailbreak iOS 16 Download Then you’d best wait for checkra1n
This is not the only iOS 16 jailbreak that has been announced, developer-focused or not. Cheyote, a user-focused jailbreak, was announced for iOS 16, and supports A11 chip to A14 and 15 chip-based devices. This is a rootless jailbreak which means users will not be able to modify the system partition, and some tweaks might not work as is with this jailbreak and would need updates. If you’re awaiting a public iOS 16 jailbreak release, then you’d best wait for checkra1n, Cheyote, or another public jailbreak when it’s ready, as it will be user-friendly and designed for the general public, as opposed to only for developer use as Project36 appears to be.
Are you happy to see the growing number of people working to pierce the security of Apple’s iOS & iPadOS 16 mobile operating systems? Be sure to let us know what you think in the comments section down below. It will also support devices as recent as iPhone 13 Pro Max. Unfortunately, Cheyote is yet to be released as the developers have not completed work on it. Fugu16 is yet another iOS 16 jailbreak, being developed by Linus Henze, but it is yet to be released to users.
