Meridian, the iOS 10.3.3 jailbreak for 64-bit Apple devices, has once again been put through an update and released as public beta 3.

The release follows hot on the heels of yesterday’s second public beta release and continues to show that the new wave of public jailbreaks will benefit from improvements and fixes.

If public beta 2 was classified as a fairly substantial release with a number of important improvements, then public beta 3 is a much smaller and minor release which looks to address just one issue. Ben Sparkes, the developer behind the jailbreak which basically is a collection of other people’s open-source work pieced together into one stable solution, has released public beta 3 with the intention of fixing a crashing issue when the ‘done’ button is pressed while jailbreaking a compatible iPad. The official changelog for public beta 3 is as follows:

-Fixed the r/w remount check
-Fixed the ‘done’ button popup on iPads

Apart from those relatively small changes, public beta 3 doesn’t contain anything that’s particular game-changing. This is definitely more of a continuation release whereby the developer is going through the process of fixing known issues, bugs, and anything else which becomes apparent after being reported by the community.

Considering this is a jailbreak which has been pieced together using the work of a number of prominent individuals in the community, it’s definitely good to see that it’s actually getting the attention that it deserves and that the development team behind Meridian is putting continuous effort into the package.

Meridian is just one of many jailbreaks which are being offered in the jailbreak community at the moment. The discovery and publishing of multiple exploits have allowed a new wave of developers to put together jailbreaks which support different devices running different versions of iOS. With that said, not everyone is as enthusiastic about the current state of things in the community.

Cydia creator Jay Freeman has already spoken out about individuals who are creating jailbreaks without any experience or knowledge of exploit finding. However, given how stagnant the community it and has been for some time, the community will happily take what it can get if it achieves device liberation.

The third release is hosted over at the official Meridian website at meridian.sparkes.zone and will give you instant access to the Meridian compiled IPA file.
