G0blin iOS 10.3.3 Jailbreak For 64-Bit Devices Is Compatible With Cydia And Substrate
Yet another developer and jailbreak enthusiast has come out of the woodwork to show off and release a jailbreak for Apple’s 64-bit devices running iOS 10.3.3.
Dubbed G0blin, the jailbreak is based on the kernel exploit found by Siguza and joins two other jailbreaks which have already been shown off in liberating Apple’s iOS 10.3.x 64-bit devices.
If you are starting to feel a little confused and overwhelmed by what’s currently going on in the jailbreak community, then worry not, as you are not alone. This latest jailbreak has been released for developers by Sticktron, who identifies as an “iOS developer” with an interest in reverse engineering iPhone software. The main G0blin interface (shown below) also confirms that the kernel exploit is provided by Siguza, the KPP bypass by Luca Todesco, and patchfinder by xerub. All of those things have allowed this Canadian developer to put together his own jailbreak for 64-bit devices running iOS 10.3.x.
The jailbreak scene sure is starting become a little bit of a blurred landscape. The recently released kernel exploits have allowed developers like tihmstar to push out the h3lix jailbreak, offering support for 32-bit devices. We’ve also had an initial tease of the Meridian jailbreak for 64-bit devices running iOS 10.3.x, as well as another 64-bit compatible jailbreak being put together and offered by Pwn20wnd.
G0blin is the third jailbreak that we’ve seen for Apple’s 64-bit devices running iOS 10.3.x. The interesting and special thing about G0blin jailbreak when compared to other two is that it uses the same KPP bypass as established by Luca Todesco in the yalu jailbreak, which means that Cydia and Substrate works with this jailbreak as is in their current iteration without needing the rewrite and update that saurik is working on for both iOS 11 and 64-bit iOS 10.3.3.
As things stand right now, the G0blin jailbreak is meant for developers as it has only been made available as code on GitHub that advanced users can compile the IPA themselves using Xcode and then install on their devices. It’s not released in IPA form because the developer doesn’t deem it as yet fit for public consumption. We will suggest waiting for the public release before going ahead and jailbreaking your device with it.
As always, as and when more information becomes available, or when a release is pushed out for public, we will be sure to let you know. Stay tuned!
