Yet another developer and jailbreak hacker Sticktron has come out with an intention to release a jailbreak for Apple’s 64-bit devices running iOS 10.3.3. Dubbed G0blin, has now provided additional insight into the current status of the utility. Also has confirmed that only one hurdle remains which is preventing the release of iOS 10.3.x jailbreak and that G0blin is “basically a yalu103 jailbreak.”
You should be thankful for the sheer number of tools, as the jailbreak scene is becoming increasingly blurred, which are being announced and released for iOS 10 and iOS 11 on the back of exploits released by Siguza and Google’s Ian Beer.
This jailbreak tool, in particular, has been put together on the back of the kernel exploit discovered and released by Siguza, and, as previously mentioned in our initial coverage, joins two other jailbreaks offering liberation for 64-bit devices running iOS 10.3.x. Following that, the developer behind this has provided a timely update regarding G0blin’s status.
The first update confirms the jailbreak has already been made available and possible thanks to the aforementioned V0rtex exploit found and rolled out by the extremely talented Siguza. Otherwise, it also suggests that there is only one issue remaining which is utterly preventing the release of G0blin as an IPA, which is “missing entitlements for root apps.”
The second update also continued with a good news by confirming that the developer actually has a plan in place to overcome the entitlement issue in order to get a release out as an IPA for the public a lot quicker. And yes, this will also come with a fully functional Cydia and Mobile Substrate installation, meaning that G0blin will be a complete jailbreak solution.
g0blin status update As you may know g0blin is basically a “yalu103” jailbreak: same devices as yalu102 but for iOS 10.3(.x) made possible by Siguza’s new v0rtex exploit. There is only one remaining issue: a missing entitlement for root apps. (1/x)
I gave Cydia the entitlement manually so it works 100%. Now I have to find/implement a solution that applies automatically to all such apps. I have a backup plan that I will implement temporarily just to release sooner, while working on the real solution.
It has been achieved by Sticktron by giving Cydia its entitlements manually to ensure that it works. When released as an IPA to public sideload, G0blin will be fully compatible with all 64-bit devices running iOS 10.3.3, except for iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus which are not compatible with Luca Todesco’s KPP bypass techniques, because G0blin makes use of that technique.
Those individuals interested in G0blin will definitely need to have a minimal amount of technical expertise as they will need to download the project from GitHub, compile it to an IPA file and then sideload it onto the target device using either Xcode or Cydia Impactor. Alternatively, you could just wait a bit more for Sticktron to release it in public IPA form.
As soon as we get any, more information on it, we will let you know. Stay tuned!
