A few weeks ago we saw how they managed to hack an iPhone 7 with iOS 11, but little else has been known about the subject. New versions of Apple’s mobile operating system are increasingly secure. In addition to the relevant characters of the scene have been eager to continue investigating, as Luca Todesco, does not help. However, and although not what most expect, has been released Phoenix Jailbreak for iOS 9.3.5.
As the legendary bird re-emerging from its ashes, Phoenix Jailbreak brings to life old devices. Specifically, those of 32 Bits with iOS 9.3.5. Thus, owners of, for example, an iPhone 4s, can extend its support and life.
The development has been in charge of Siguza and tihmstar, two well-known iOS hackers. They also thank Luca Todesco, Max Bazaliy and jk9357 for providing some interface elements.
Phoenix Jailbreak is very similar to the jailbreak of iOS 9.1-9.3.4 Home Depot inside. This makes sense, since Home Depot is the latest and latest tool for iOS 9, courtesy of jk9357. Tihmstar commented that the development will not be open source.
It is semi-untethered, so every time we turn off the iPhone or iPad will have to open the app again to activate it. There were indications of an untethered version, but it seems that it did not come to fruition. Another bad point is that tools like Cydia Extender do not work on iOS 9, so it must be done manually or have an Apple developer account.
Step 1: Download the Phoenix jailbreak .IPA file from here.
Step 2: Download Cydia Impactor.
Step 3: Connect our iPhone or iPad to the computer via USB.
Step 4: Launch Cydia Impactor and drag the IPA file to it.
Step 5: your Apple ID and password .
Step 6: On the device, go to Settings> General> Device Management and we trust the profile.
Step 7: Open the app and give it to “Prepare For Jailbreak”.
Step 8: Wait for the respring and then start Cydia from the Home screen.
Step 9: After the reboot, re-open the app and give it to “Kickstart Jailbreak”.
Step 10: When the app expires, install again with Cydia Impactor.
The procedure is likely to fail several times. It’s totally normal, and developers recommend you try it until it is successfully completed .
