Step Four


On A11 devices, you must disable your passcode and will not be able to use your passcode, or related functionality like Face ID/Touch ID and Apple Pay until you boot into a stock state.

Additionally, if you are on iOS 16 with an A11 processor and have ever set a passcode, you must erase all content and settings before jailbreaking. You can do this from Settings > General > Transfer or Reset iPhone > Erase All Content and Settings.

MAKE SURE TO MAKE A BACKUP OF YOUR IPHONE PRIOR TO THESE STEPS.

Step Five


Connect your iPhone to your computer. If using a USB-C to Lightning cable, you will likely need to use a USB-C to USB-A adapter and a USB-A to Lightning cable instead. This is because some USB-C to Lightning cables do not allow you to put your iPhone into DFU mode.

Step Six


Execute the following command in the Terminal window to create a new APFS volume required for rootful jailbreak. Note that this will require 5GB - 10GB of space, so we don't advise trying it on a 16GB device.

palera1n -cf
