As the first entry to Untethered Jailbreak after a quite long time, the release of the “UntetherHomeDepot” eventually be able to turn more heads towards. So this is all about the Cydia package from tihmstar’s repo on the store for the devices on iOS 9.1-9.3.4 that jailbroken with Home Depot sometimes back with semi-untethered. If you were always on the side of untethered despite all move to hybrid techniques of jailbreak, this is a fine turn you need putting the attention on, thanks to tihmstar. So here we go on how each part goes putting you back for a fully untethered feeling.
Starting from Pangu 9.3.3 over a year back up until the recent Jailbreak Phoenix, we found a flow of semi-untethered with a mix of both tethered and untethered jailbreak features. Although it was quite strange at the entry, with consistent updates the jailbreak signing through an IPA with use Cydia impactor download came quite familiar. But as always, the need of resigning of the jailbreak after every reboot and all conditions to the certificate expiry happened to meet distaste being the reason if anyone still prevents in the move to semi-untethered jailbreak.
For whom tihmstar’s Untethered Jailbreak can be used?
This is the very first untethered package came to the jailbreak community after years. And this is for iOS 9.1-9.3.4 Home Depot Jailbreak devices from semi-untethered. Although tihmstar has promised this untethered package to work for all devices jailbroken with Home Depot previously, for current, it is extremely limited in the device compatibility. So for the moment, it is only workable for 32-bit iPhone 4S on iOS 9.3.4. But we believe it will add support for other devices as well progressively.
How does it work to Install Cydia?
As stated repeatedly, the app can only be used for iOS 9.3.4 running iPhone 4 devices only. So we do not recommend experimenting with others if you aren’t with any expert knowledge in making modifications. It starts with the tihmstar’s repo following the package comes UntetherHomeDepot.
It is clear that Pegasus vulnerabilities are used here in the untether. But as the developer has not open-sourced the based untether code yet, we are unknown how the vulnerabilities are arranged here. So follow the video guide to catch how it works on the device.
UntetherHomeDepot v 1.2.0 Updated
Seeing at the work frame, we are clear that the tool is still in progress. So as a result, tihmstar has now offered version 1.2.0 recently, fixing a trouble on devices with a passcode applied. And concern from the initial release, the version 1.2.0 looks solution to a lot of bugs but still in need of better stability. And further, the OpenSSH daemon failing in the start is too a known trouble with the package. So to make the best use of the package, you are required caution together with the appropriate skill. And do not forget, you are extremely limited with the compatibility which you need the double check before proceeding.
The release of Untethered Jailbreak is a sign of some life still remain on the old-untethered concept. So let us wait how this will make a better comeback in the times up.
Update as on 4th September 2017:
Proving that UntetheredHomeDepot is still under the development, we recently received the update 1.4.1 as the latest. So with the addition, you will be able to jailbreak 32-bit devices on iOS 9.2.1, which was previously allowed to jailbreak by Pangu 9.3.3 but only 64-bit devices in a semi-untethered way. So now with the added version 1.4.1, iOS 9.2.1 running 32-bit devices too can get with Cydia fun in UntetherHomeDepot. And there, the fun gets doubled knowing it is a complete untethered solution even after a delay which has no expiration troubles, resigning problems etc. And at the same time, the new version contains additional bug fixes, under-the-hood improvements for a better time with Untethered Jailbreak by Tihmstar.
