Jailbreakers have been playing the catch and mouse game with Apple who has been making it very difficult to jailbreak iOS by fixing the vulnerabilities used by jailbreak tools like Electra Jailbreak and also preventing users to downgrade to an older version that can be jailbroken.
If that’s not challenging enough, app developers also prevent jailbreakers from using their apps by using jailbreak detection techniques, which means that jailbreakers have to choose between jailbreaking and using their favorite apps like Snapcat, Fortnight and banking apps.
The good news is that Indian hacker and jailbreak developer, Umang Raghuvanshi has announced that they will be releasing Libertas, a jailbreak tweak that will help you bypass jailbreak detection on your jailbroken iPhone or iPad so that you can use your favorite apps. It looks like the solution that the Electra jailbreak team has come up with will allow you to bypass more than 9 different jailbreak detection techniques. They have also managed to successfully use over 90 apps by bypassing the jailbreak detection.
Targeting 9 distinct techniques, Libertas is confirmed working with more than 90 of your favourite apps.
Raghuvanshi has announced that Libertas will be released on Friday, July 27.
It remains to be seen how long the jailbreakers will be able to stay ahead of this cat and mouse game with app developers. The important thing, however, is with plans to release tweaks like Libertas and Sileo, the replacement for Cydia, Electra Jailbreak team seems to be working on solutions that would make jailbreaking a lot easier and appealing.
