CoolStar on iOS 15.2+ A12+Jailbreak: 'It is Not Looking Good'

CoolStar on iOS 15.2+ A12+Jailbreak: 'It is Not Looking Good'

Posted March 14, 2022 at 12:15am by iClarified
CoolStar, the hacker behind iPhone jailbreaks like Taurine, Electra, and Odyssey, has issued an update on the jailbreak status of iOS 15.2+ on A12+ devices.

In a post on the Sileo, Taurine, Odyssey Discord channel CoolStar says, "It is not looking good"...

re: iOS 15.2 on A12+ it is not looking good, potentially worse than 15.1. Honestly with all the hardware mitigations it's really looking like it's time governments start cracking down on Apple with the antitrust and right-to-repair legislation. The mitigations are good for security from attackers, but yeah users shouldn't need to have to hack their own devices just to customize it

Here's the breakdown of how things stand...

● iOS 15: A9 - A11 are unaffected aside from the jailbreak being rootless

● iOS 15.0 - 15.1.1 A12+: Will need a sandbox escape, but should be good otherwise

● iOS 15.2+ A12+: Consider setuid completely dead on these firmwares. Jailbreaks will need a userland bug to get code execution as root at minimum. sudo, Sileo, etc. will be broken and will need to be updated even if the jailbreak can be done

We're expecting iOS 15.4 to be released next week. Hopefully, Apple hasn't introduced even more roadblocks to a jailbreak.

If you don't want Apple as the gatekeeper of what apps you can and cannot run on your iPhone, consider supporting proposed antitrust legislation. The bi-partisan 'Open Markets Act' that would require Apple to allow users to install apps on their iPhone without using the App Store. This is known as sideloading.

It'll be better soon. Me and tihmstar finished the checkm8 jailbreak for iOS 15, so Taurine15 should be ready in a week or so.
