While many were expecting a jailbroken version of Apple’s iOS 10 for some time, they weren’t betting on the release of a feature for the iOS 9.3.3 Jailbreak. The author of the new tool is Luca Todesco, a known internet security cracker.
After stating that the changes made to iOS 10.2 made it very hard to crack Apple’s newest OS, he provided a WebKit for the platform’s default browser, Safari. It is important to keep in mind that this isn’t for the officially released, but the jailbroken version provided by Pangu.
The 9.3.3 iOS Jailbreak version release by Pangu has its merits, but a strong feeling of frustration lingers within the otherwise thankful community. The firmware has a pretty annoying downside, which is the fact that it works on a developer certificate which eventually expires, and users have to constantly reinstall the OS completely.
The fix provided by Luca Todesco is quite interesting, as it is based on the OS’s browser and allows users to reinstall the jailbroken iOS version with just one tap, as long as your device is already jailbroken. The whole process requires you to navigate on your browser to a specific web page which will guide you towards renewing your certificate.
According to Luca Todesco, you can even bypass the necessity of having an internet connection by adding a shortcut to your phone’s homescreen. Apparently, web app caching based on the now superior HTML5 is used for this fix.
You can use this fix on any iPhone as long as it’s not older than iPhone 5. Also, it is worth remembering that you won’t be able to load Cydia.
