The last time I jailbroke an Apple device developers hadn't even updated any cool tweaks to work on newer versions of iOS. I really couldn't do anything cool. I'm really not sure who's still jailbreaking.
I love questions like that. Yeah, the community is quite big, the jailbreak subreddit has over 300k subscribers and after last couple of releases it seems to be gathering some popularity.
So they can install apps that Apple deems inappropriate for the app store...Cant figure out why anyone would need a jailbreak anymore...
not even close...Not as big as it once was.
Apple pretty much KO'd the jailbreak teams efforts when it released the App Store in 2008.
When the strongest team stopped developing the jailbreak and secondary teams have to step in and when even suarik has stopped developing Cydia... you know its been KO'd.not even close...
there are still plenty of apps that would never be allowed on the App Store for various reasons...
and that's just a few things you'd need to jailbreak for... re-signing only can get you so far
- Kodi because of the addon system and overall reputation they've gained (due to said addon system)
- Retroarch because emulators aren't allowed
- System-level customizations like Winterboard
- Things like Wi-Fi scanners that need to break out of the Apple sandbox to function\
The only slight temptation for me would be installing MAME.
A12 is limited to 12.0-12.1.2 by of a PAC bypass specific to that SoCfree jailbreak that works on devices running the latest version of iOS or any version of iOS below iOS 12.3.
Yeah this is an interesting speculation. I wonder in light of some of the recent tragic events, a three letter agency approached Apple and asked them to "whoopsie" a jailbreak open again so they could get into a device that was on the current OS, knowing that Apple would cry from the rooftops if they tried to ask them to break encryption again.Cough when does apple do anything *accidentally*
