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.
