G0blin, a jailbreak for 64-bit devices prior to the iPhone 7 (A7 – A9) running iOS 10.3.x , has been released by Sticktron.
If you’re not a developer, we recommend that you must wait until the final version has been released.

We are hearing much about the Cydia alternative because Cydia is not supporting the latest iOS versions especially iOS 11 jailbreak. Installer 5 is one of those projects which has managed to make space in the jailbreak community. On one hand, some individuals believe it can step into the footsteps of Cydia due to the fact that Cydia hasn’t been put through an update for a long while.
However, there’s also the obvious issue that most of the important tweaks and packages need Substrate to be installed and working on the device, which is still yet to be updated with iOS 11 compatibility and it seems highly unlikely that the Installer 5 team will have an alternative to this.
Saurik has updated that he is working on Cydia 11 and its substrate to work with iOS 11 jailbreak. After which Installer team has also started giving update to keep the community awake. Here is latest from Installer team, which came from Dennis Bednarz, also confirms that Installer 5 is being developed in separate parts:
The UI and the actual black magic code in #installer5 are developed separately for now so developers can optimize their time and so designers can do the same. We will have a working UI “prototype“ in the coming days where people will be able to install a dummy app to test the UX
This release of a prototype is useful for developer as well to grasp the inputs and improvement opportunities. We shall keep you informed once we see the real breakthrough in the achievement of iOS 11 jailbreak with working Cydia or Installer 5 app store.
The announcement of Installer 5 update is not telling when the prototype version of the tool will actually be released but the suggestion of the “coming days” would lead us to believe that we should definitely expect a version during next week. As always, we will let you know as soon as it’s available. Stay tuned.
Another supporting update for iOS 11 jailbreak seekers, that Cydia developer Saurik is working with a well known developer to release a jailbreak for iOS 11.0 – 11.1.2 with a working Cydia and Cydia Substrate.
I have been working on putting together an end-to-end replacement for the userland parts of the exploit tooling–with help from a well-known jailbreak developer (who did tell me he would like to come public with this, so I will be crediting him in the final release and you will all find out who it is… “SURPRISE REVEAL” ;P)–that, when combined with my crazy new Substrate “let’s hook dyld itself” implementation, simply fixes all of the reasons why this “jailbreakd” that coolstar and Morpheus want so badly supposedly needs to exist.
Saurik further notes that the architecture without a jailbreak daemon is much cleaner and will be more stable, “it means that there isn’t some weird coordination boundary halfway between Substrate and the jailbreak”.
Although work on Substrate is ‘almost done’, saurik says he still has some work to do to get the full Cydia Installer stack ported. He also expressed concern that we are are reaching an era of jailbreaking where we get a cygwin-like Unix simulation rather than real and high-quality tooling “which had been the core thing that motivated me to jailbreak my own devices.”
We have already got LiberiOS 11 jailbreak tool which is now waiting for patching or integrating with Cydia and users can jailbreak ios 11 & 11.1.2.
You can read full update on reddit ios jailbreak page.
Jailbreak game is on again since many days. JB hungry community is running behind the blogs and videos and posts that are picturing jailbreak success. But the truth is that there is no jailbreak available that can give an end user like you and of course me the working Cydia app store. So we can say all these releases are actually partial and does not give full benefit of iOS jailbreak.
If we talk about last 10-15 days we have seen lot of claims and releases of which latest is Meridian iOS 10.3.3 jailbreak that is supporting all 64 it idevices. Before this we got update regarding LiberiOS11, h3lix 10.3.3 jailbreak which was updated as Rc5. At the same time news are coming that Cydia may get new life for iOS 11 compatibility, especially after the evolution of Installer 5 Cydia competitor.
Lets grasp some useful information on latest updates one by one.
1. Meridian Jailbreak Released
This jailbreak is released by PsychoTea as ips file that means it requires impactor to inject the file into your idevice after which you can say it is jailbroken. You can download Meridian Jailbreak Tool from our download section. But still Cydia will not work if your device is having any other jailbreak tool.
Meridian Jailbreak supports all 64-bit devices, running any iOS version between 10.0 and 10.3.3. The devices that are compatible include:
- iPhone 7 & 7+
- iPhone 6S & 6S+
- iPhone 6 & 6+
- iPhone SE
- iPhone 5S
- iPad Air 1 and 2
- iPad (2017)
- iPad Mini 2, 3, and 4
- iPad Pro 1 and 2 (12.9″ and 10.5″)
- iPod Touch 6th Gen
Update: Public beta 3 of Meridian iOS 10.3.3 jailbreak is available for download for 64-bit Apple devices.
2. Houdini Semi Jailbreak Beta 2
Houdini is actually a jailbreak like tool which is not a jailbreak. It provides many tweaks and options and user may think that he is working in jailbreak environment. The process is same like other tools i.e. use impactor to inject ips file. Below is note from developer:
note: this is not meant to be a jailbreak replacement nor is this a full jailbreak. it will never be. although it is safe to use, I am not responsible for any mess up also, some features might not work in beta
How to Install Houdini
- Download the houdini.ipa file and Cydia Impactor
- Open Cydia Impactor and connect your device
- Drag the Houdini.ipa file onto the Cydia Impactor window
- Enter your Apple ID (email and password)
- Open Settings → General → Profiles & Device Management
- Trust the new certificate → open Houdini
- Tap ‘start’ and enjoy!
3. G0blin iOS 10.3.3 64-Bit Jailbreak
G0blin is third recent jailbreak that people are looking for and hoping for working jailbreak for iOS latest versions. The tool is available as G0blin.ipa file and as usual need impactor to install it. G0blin does not provide Cydia substrate at the moment which shortly shall be available for public in coming revisions. Refer below update from G0blin developer:
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.
In summary community is still waiting the release of iOS 11 jailbreak because Saurik is also working for Cydia iOS 11 finalization.
These are instructions on how to jailbreak your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch using LiberiOS. Currently, this jailbreak only supports devices running iOS 11.0 – 11.1.2. Cydia is not yet available but it should be soon!
Download the latest liberiOS jailbreak IPA and Cydia Impactor from here and save them to a folder on your computer.
Plug in the power cable and connect your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch to your computer via USB.
Drag and drop the LiberiOS IPA downloaded earlier into the Cydia Impactor app.
Launch the new LiberiOS app that appears on your SpringBoard.
Tap the Jailbreak button.
Your device will now be jailbroken!
You can now SSH into your device using its IP address, the user ‘root’, and the password ‘alpine’. Once logged in, you should change the root password.
To get the full binpack, enter the following command:
● A big thanks to Jonathan Levin, Ian Beer and everyone else who had a hand in creating this jailbreak.
● This is a semi-tethered jailbreak. You will need to rerun the LiberiOS app each time you reboot.
● Apps installed onto your device using Cydia Impactor and a normal user account will only run for seven days. You will need to reinstall the app after that. Alternatively, find a friend with a developer account. Apps signed with a developer account should run for one year.
Please follow our blog to be updated when Cydia is available and working.
