A new jailbreak has been released. You notice it requires a computer. Sigh... Well, what if I told you that you don't need a computer?
Alright, so here are the Pros and the Cons of this remote jailbreak.
- No computer
- Super fast & easy
- Uses 1 year certificate
- Cannot be revoked by Apple*
- In Chinese
- May take multiple attempts
Okay, let's get into the jailbreak process. Before we start, please make sure you read all of the steps before attempting.
First, you will need to download the PP app onto your iOS device. You can do that by visiting this page on your iOS device** and tapping here.
Next, go home and look under the app logo where it will say either "Loading..." or "Installing". Wait for the text to change from "Loading..." to "Installing...". Immediately open control center and turn on Airplane Mode. You need to do this before the app finishes downloading. If it says the app cannot be installed at this time, delete the app and repeat step 1 and 2. Proceed to step 3 once the app successfully installs.
Then, open Settings and go to General, Profiles and Device Management, find the certificate for the PP app, tap on it, and select Trust. If you cannot trust the app, you need to follow the instructions for my upcoming blog post, titled "How to Fix Unable to Verify iPhone Developer."
After that, open the PP app and allow notifications. If you don't allow notifications, the jailbreak will fail. This jailbreak relies on an exploit related to notifications. Wait for about a minute and press the button inside the ring. Then, wait about another 30 seconds and lock your device.
Finally, you should receive a notification in Chinese. That means that the jailbreak was successful but it needs a minute to install Cydia and respring. Do not touch your device during this process. Once the apple logo is displayed, wait for a second and you should be able to unlock your device and see Cydia on your home screen.
If any part of this jailbreak didn't work, I will write a post on how to troubleshoot jailbreak errors. Be patient for now. Maybe try a YouTube video on it?
*The certificate used was already revoked by Apple but by putting it in Airplane mode when it says "Installing...", you can bypass this.
**You must be using the Safari app on an iOS device in order for this to work.
