QiLin Jailbreak Toolkit Released To Standardize Present And Future Jailbreaks
After releasing LiberiOS and LiberTV jailbreaks for iOS 11.1.x and tvOS 11.1, security researcher and developer, as well as the author of MacOS and iOS Internals book, Jonathan Levin, has now released the much anticipated QiLin Jailbreak Toolkit.
According to Levin, “QiLin Jailbreak ToolKit is a simple code base, which standardizes all the common tasks required for jailbreaking”.
QiLin Jailbreak ToolKit, which also powers the recently released LiberiOS jailbreak for all 64-bit devices running iOS 11.0-11.1.2, will help developers in handling the complicated tasks, enabling them to build “whatever UI/customization/tweaking/modding of the jailbreak” they want.
The QiLin Jailbreak ToolKit is a simple code base, which standardizes all the common tasks required for jailbreaking – from breaking out of the sandbox and assuming root capabilities, remounting the root file system, unpacking binaries, and more – in a way that is stable, safe, and reduces the amount of code to about 10 lines. It is aimed at researchers and jailbreak enthusiasts, who wish to learn more about the intricacies of kernel tinkering without being bogged down by the nooks and crannies of setting up a stable work environment.
In other words, the toolkit handles the complicated tasks, and you can built whatever UI/customization/tweaking/modding of the jailbreak you want.
Levin plans to open source QiLin as soon as he has finished stabilizing a few things and bulletproofed them.
If you are a developer or security researcher, and want to tinker with iOS, you can download the necessary object and header files from Levin’s website here and then start using it in your project.
The jailbreak community has seen incredible activity the past few days, with h3lix jailbreak by tihmstar as well as LiberiOS and LiberTV jailbreaks by Levin all landing within last one week.
