04. Install all new iOS 14 features right now
Apple has introduced so many awesome features with the iOS 14 beta / iPadOS 14 release and now it has released the iOS 14 final version to the Public. But we still believe iOS 13 jailbreak is more worthwhile than installing iOS 14. You could get almost every of these features with Jailbreaking.
Some argue that Apple has copied these features from the Android Operating system. But Jailbreak developers have developed all of these features as Jailbreak tweaks. ( even with more functions.) So, these features can be considered as tweaks borrowed from the jailbreak community.
Install 14 features using Jailbreak
- XenHTML – This is the most popular widget Jailbreak app for iPhone and iPads. You can install a custom widget for your Jailbroken device using this Jailbreak tweak. It works better than the iOS 14 widget feature.
It is available on many XenHTML widgets as follows.
- SB EW74 – This is a very basic function including widget. Time, date and the weather icon can be changed with this.
- HS13 – This is very functional widgets. It has over 50 + customization options including dark mode. all the information can be obtained by tapping the time/date position.
- Soda HS 13 – This is another awesome widget. weather condition, battery life, date/ time, music player, and a album artwork image can be shown via this widget.
- BetterWidgets – BetterWidgets is a free jailbreak tweak for iPhone and iPad users. It offers customization options for current iOS widgets. if you have jailbroken iDevice this is the best tweak to run on it. Functional and Aesthetic customization options are offering BetterWidgets to customize iOS today Widget.
It can be customized widget buttons with changing the shape and transparent, text color, background of the widgets, wallpaper of the widget page. This tweak is compatible with all the jailbroken versions of iOS 11 + , iOS 12 + and iOS 13 +.
- Arko – This widget gives android looks to your iPhone widget. It can get the Android looks date/time, weather icon, Location, temperature to your jailbroken iDevice.
- Konban – Konban is a free jailbreak tweak. It helps you to replace the application interface as your choice to the Home screen’s Today view. after installing Konban tweak, it adds a preference pane to the settings with few options, which you can configure.
- SettingsWidgets – This free jailbreak tweak brings few, but very useful widgets to the user interface of the settings app. Battery Information, usage of Storage, WiFi states can watch easily through the widget homescreen once installed SettingsWidgets.
So far you cannot install above jailbreak tweaks for iOS 14 until jailbreak it. There is not available any Semi untethered or untethered jailbreak tool for iOS 14 as mentioned earlier. So, we have to wait to experience more than iOS 14 through Widgets Jailbreak tweaks.
Also above Jailbreak apps can be considered as alternatives for Widget Sizes , Widget Stacks, Widget Smart Stack.
iOS 14 App Library
This is another cool feature that iOS 14 has been provided. It organizes all the Home screen apps automatically to navigate the view. Using the following Jailbreak app/tweaks, it can get the same ( or better ) iOS 14 App Library experiences.
- Folded – Folded is a jailbreak tweak supported for iOS 11, iOS 12 and iOS 13 jailbroken devices. It comes with ‘Folders, your way’. Folded helps you to change the home screen folders layout, frame, icons, Appearance, titles and many more options. Most important things are that every toggle has an ON or OFF button to switch on or switch off options any time you want.
- MaskMuter – It can remove the latent mask or image of the app or folder, when you open it. This jailbreak tweak is supported for iOS 12 and not confirmed iOS 13 support yet.
- FolderIcons – FolderIcons is a little bit old tweak. It should work with previous iOS versions. The developer of FolderIcons not confirm this tweak works with the latest jailbreakable iOS version . However, this tweak allows you to customize Home Screen folders such as changing icons, removes background, removes shadow and removes badges for Home screen folders.
- FolderEnhancer – You can’t put widgets in folders with iOS 14. FolderEnhancer comes again to change the iPhone folders better than ever.
iOS 14 Siri update
Siri has been renewed in iOS 14 in many ways. All the information you need to know, can get a new compact layout now. iOS 14 Siri interface has been updated. Now it has a chance these changes can get from the jailbreak tweaks for jailbroken iOS 13.5 devices.

In addition, social downloader jailbreak tweak by iOS developer Elias is working with iOS 12 & iOS 13. This app works with iOS 10 to iOS 13.4. Also, you can download videos not only from youtube but also all the social platforms.
However, some of these jailbreak tweaks are not working with the latest iOS 14 version or early iOS 13 versions..
As a solution there are non-jailbroken tweaks that work with latest versions up to iOS 14. YouTube++ is a non jailbroken tweak to adding features to youtube. This is an alternative for Youtube downloader / Youtube ad blocker. Also, it has a lot of features such as Play video /audio in the background, Set video playback speed, Auto-replay videos and Disable age restrictions & many more.
There were many useful jailbreak tweaks for earley iOS versions. Unfortunately, these tweaks are not working with iOS 14 or other latest versions. Here are a few famous tweaks that are not working Jailbreak tweaks.
iOS 14 / iOS 14.0.1 non Jailbreak Tweaks

iOS 14 Jailbreak Approaches
Pangu -The most popular Pangu jailbreak team has demonstrated iOS 14 at Mosec 2020. Min(Spark) Zheng (@SparkZheng) has published one of the images via his official twitter account to prove the iOS 14 jailbreak demo with Pangu.
Most probably, the Pangu team will not publish Pangu jailbreak for iOS 14 to the public just like previous jailbreak attempt. Last time Pangu proved the iOS 12 jailbreak possibility with Pangu by jailbreak iPhone XS running iOS 12. However, they didn’t publicize it.
Yalu – Luca todesco, also known as qwertyoruiop was the developer of the most popular Yalu jailbreak which is available for iOS 10 -10.2 Jailbreak. qwerty jailbreak methods are a great asset to the Jailbreak community and many jailbreak tools developed using his exploits/method. He reported many vulnerabilities to create potential jailbreak for manu iOS versions.
Osiris Jailbreak – This is incomplete jailbreak for iOS 12 – iOS 12.1.2. A famous Jailbreak developer GeoSn0w developed this using the tfp0 exploit. It Always, he comes up once new iOS releases. So, it might update osiris or another new tool for iOS 14 too.
iOS 14 Jailbreak Exploit
Jailbreak exploit is a vulnerability that exists on iOS versions or devices. These vulnerabilities used to be exploited to get potential Jailbreak. So, Finding a Jailbreak exploit is the 1st step of Jailbreaking. Still No one could release a Jailbreak exploit for iOS 14
tfp0, voucher_swap, oob_timestamp, sockpuppet, checkm8 exploit are few of most popular exploits so far. Also, IOSurface Kernel Exploit which is released for H3lix by thimstar was used to develop many Jailbreak.
Most probably, Google’s Project Zero member Ian beer will release Zero day exploit for iOS 14. Also, Brandon Azad is another Popular exploit developer. We can assume Ian beer or Brandon Azad may release the next Jailbreak exploit for iOS 14.
Unc0ver Jailbreak for iOS 14
Unc0ver Semi Untethered jailbreak method is still not available for iOS 14 running iPhones and iPads yet. Unc0ver 5.0.0 was released only for iOS 13.5 Jailbreak. Now the unc0ver team is working to release Uncover (next version – 6.0.0) for the latest iOS 14 version.
So, it only can use the Unc0ver alternative online method for iOS 14 to install jailbreak apps. Currently Zeon Jailbreak repo extractor is the only Unc0ver alternative solution for iOS 14
Zeon is not a IPA based Semi Untethered Jailbreak solution as unc0ver. It is a Jailbreak repo extractor. You can install it to iOS 14 devices as an app to install popular Jailbreak apps, 3rd party tweaks and themes directly to your iOS 14 iPhone or iPad online.
Similarities and differences with Unc0ver and Zeon
- Both install Jailbreak apps, 3rd party tweaks and themes ( But apps, tweaks and themes are not same)
- Both Install Cydia ( But Zeon cydia has no all features)
- Zeon is a completely Online Jailbreak solution and unc0ver is PC based Jailbreak.
- Because Unc0ver Jailbreak is a system rooted method, it voids your Apple warranty. But zeon does not access your system root. So, Zeon does not affect your System warranty.
- Zeon has a super easy to install process and unc0ver process is somewhat hard. It required, PC+ Cydia impactor or Altstore.
- Unc0ver is compatible with all iOS 13 versions ( up to iOS 13.5), But Zeon is only compatible with iOS 14.
- Unc0ver supports available upto iOS 13.5 only. You cannot use unc0ver to jailbreak iOS 14 running devices. And iOS 13.5.1 / iOS 13.6 / iOS 13.6.1 / iOS 13.7 versions are not available yet.
More Semi-untethered / Semi Tethered Jailbreak for iOS 14
Unc0ver, Checkra1n & Odyssey are the latest semi-untethered / Semi-tethered Jailbreak. These tools definealy upgraded for iOS 14. However, none of these tools are still doesn’t compatible with iOS 14 Jailbreak.
We hope these next versions will be coming, adding support for iOS 14 considering the nature of exploits, possibility as well as popularity of the tools.
- Odyssey Jailbreak v1.2 beta (next version)
Odyssey semi-untethered Jailbreak released for iOS 13 – iOS 13.5 Jailbreak on all device models including iPhone XS/ XS Max/XR, iPhone 11/11 Pro / 11 Pro Max. Their first release via v.1.0 for iOS 13 – iOS 13.5. This is a Chimera Jailbreak replacement tool developed by the Cool star and the Team. This comes with a sileo app manager. Even though it is the default app manager you can select Cydia as your preference. This is an open source jailbreak and designed to work with modern platforms.
We can expect Odyssey Jailbreak next release for iOS 13.5.1 – iOS 14 Jailbreak too.
- Fugu Jailbreak
This is the first open source jailbreak tool based on the checkm8 exploit developed by LinusHenze. However, this was only available for developers. It is possible to install Sileo or Cydia. Currently, the iPad Pro (2017) is the only officially supported device and iPhone 7 is on testing. This is very similar to the Checkra1n jailbreak. Hence, Checkm8 is an unpatchable hardware exploit, Fugu Jailbreak can be developed for iOS 14.
iOS 14 vs Jailbreak
Why should Jailbreak iOS 14?
Apple has added some impressive features throughout the new iOS 14 release. But when it comes to device customization it has some limitations with Apple app store apps. So, we need to install third party apps on iOS 14. For that you should jailbreak iOS 14.
Once you Jailbreak you can install new themes to customize your device your own way. Also, you can install hack games such as Pubg, Free in app purchase, spy app, install 3rd party app managers such as Cydia, zJailbreak, Panda helper, Anemone.
However, some apps may not work because of Jailbreak detection. Also, some of them are not upgraded to run on the latest iOS 14 version.
Legal Policy and legal status changed in iOS 14
Most users think that Jailbreak policy and legal status will change with iOS 14 releasing. Apple tried, but couldn’t change the legal status for iOS 14; it remains the same.
Jailbreaking is completely legal in the US. Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA)
applicable for DRM mechanisms such as Jailbreaking. The US Library of Congress exempted jailbreaking iPhones from the DMCA in 2012 as well as jailbreaking iPads was made legal in 2015. Basically, it is perfectly legal in other countries too. So, there have been no changes since then and iOS 14 Jailbreak legal status remains the same. However, any crimes you commit on the device remain illegal.
But iOS 14 Jailbreak void your Apple’s warranty. But restoring to iOS 14 your iPhone, iPad again, you can claim your warranty. However Installing iOS 14 repo extractor will not affect your Apple warranty.
iOS 14 Jailbreaking vs Unlocking
There is a difference between jailbreaking and unlocking.
Jailbreak is the process of removing software restrictions defined by Apple. It allows you to customize your iOS 14 device installing 3rd party apps.
Unlocking is the removing SIM restrictions of iOS 14 iPhones to be used with any wireless network. Locked iPhone are only work on the telecom network of that specific wireless carrier. There are 2 types of iPhone unlocks as software unlock and hardware unlock.
The main reason unlock iPhone is to get different service providers, also unlocked iPhone has a better resale value.
Is Jailbreak free?
Apple is ready to pay millions of dollars to whoever finds Jailbreak exploit for iOS 14. Therefore many Jailbreak developers are not interested in releasing new iOS 14 Jailbreak. Instead of releasing jailbreak they would rather report iOS 14 bugs to Apple.
However we should be grateful to Jailbreak developers as well as third party app developers around the world. They are hardworking with many sleepless nights to offer Jailbreak free to the Jailbreak community.
Repo extractors – Currently Zeon is the 1st iOS 14 Jailbreak repo extractor. It will allow you to install Jailbreak apps/ tweaks on iOS 14. This is an easy Online Jailbreak method. Find more Repo extractors.
IPA based Jailbreak – This is Cydia Impactor + Computer based Jailbreak method. You need to side load the Jailbreak IPA to your iOS device with the support of a computer using Cydia Impactor. Most of semi-untethered, semi-tethered and untethered Jailbreak are IPA based Jailbreak. Now Cydia impactor works with paid certificates only, so you need an Apple developer account.
Unc0ver was an IPA based semi-untethered Jailbreak method. You need to sideload Uncover using Mac or Windows 10 Computer. There is no Unc0ver Online method hence Apple blocked Plist. They have introduced the Altstore method as an alternative to cydia impactor. Most Probably unc0ver will be the first iOS 14 Jailbreak.
Semi-tethered Jailbreak – Checkra1n Jailbreak is hardware based Semi-tethered Jailbreak. This exploit can not be fixed without hardware modification. It exists on A5-A11 devices as permanent. Now, Checkra1n iOS 14 jailbreak is available for A9/A9X devices.
GUI Jailbreak tools (Untethered) – Most probably GUI Jailbreak tool will not be released for iOS 14 running iPhones/iPad. Untethered jailbreak is the most successful Jailbreak method for iPhone models and old iOS versions. This is permanent jailbreak. Seas0npas, p0sixspwn, evasi0n, Absinthe, TaiG, Pangu 8 and PP Jailbreakare some older untethered jailbreaks.Unfortunately Nobody will release untethered Jailbreak for iOS 14 because Apple new security features.
Tethered Jailbreak – tethered Jailbreak is a temporary Jailbreak method. You will lose the jailbreak every time after reboot. Last tethered Jailbreak was Redsnow Jailbreak.
More repo extractors:
Hexxa Plus – Hexxa plus was the most popular jailbreak repo extractor for iOS 13 versions. It was the upgraded version which is available for iOS 12 – iOS 12.4.8 Jailbreak. It worked perfectly on all iOS 13 versions and the best solution for the iOS 13.5.1 Jailbreak. Now it is working with new iOS 14 too. A few apps are freeze with the new iOS 14 and Hexxa team will fix it soon.
Bregxi – Bregxi also a famous repo extractor which has been available since iOS 12.3 Jailbreak. Now it is compatible with iOS 14 too. But, many of Bregxi sources have not upgraded for the iOS 14.
Ziyu – Ziyu was introduced in earley iOS 12 versions. It also helps you to install Jailbreak apps using repo extracting methods. Unfortunately, it has not performed well since iOS 13.3. So, it might not work with iOS 14.
zJailbreak – zJailbreak is a popular third-party app store for iOS 14. Over 5 million active zjailbreak users around the world. zJailbreak offers many third party apps, Jailbreak tweaks, Emulators, games
iOS 14 Jailbreak Status
iOS 14 Jailbreak Challenge
iOS 14 comes with advanced security features. Apple always wanted to prevent Jailbreak on Apple devices. Accordingly, iOS 14 Jailbreak (software based) will be very hard. Apple put all effort into releasing iOS 14 with minimum vulnerabilities as usual. Also, Apple added a new mitigation to SEPOS on A10 and above devices on iOS 14. So, it needed more work to be done for hardware based checkra1n too to add iOS 14 support on A10 & above devices too.
Already users have reported to Reddit that they are getting jailbreak detection pop-ups while 3rd party app installation on iOS 14 as follows.
On the other hand iOS 14 online Jailbreak is another big challenge.
Online Jailbreak challenge
Currently Zeon is an online Jailbreak solution for iOS 14.
Semi-untethered tools such as unc0ver most probably Windows, Mac or Linux based Jailbreak.
Apple is always blocking Jailbreak Plist (IPA’s that can be downloaded online.) So, online iOS 14 Semi-untethered tools will not be released or if anybody releases iOS 14 online Unc0ver or any other IPA, Apple may block it within a few days.
Checkra1n is also computer based Jailbreak and they are not attending for Online Jailbreak. Even official Windows support is also pending for previous iOS versions too.
iPhone 12 Jailbreak
Apple announced iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Max, iPhone 12 Pro & iPhone 12 Pro Max. We can assume that iOS 14.1 will be the default iOS version. iPhone 12 models use an Apple-designed 5-nanometer A14 chip manufactured by TSMC. Also, the A12 chip security will be very high. So, Jailbreak will be much harder than ever. Most probably Zeon Jailbreak repo extractor working with this iPhone 12 lineup.
5-nanometer process A14 chips that are smaller, faster, and more battery efficient due to improved thermal management. This A14 chip will focus on speeding up artificial intelligence and AR tasks. It comes with most advanced high security features.
A14 Jailbreaking will be very harder than A12 and A13 Jailbreak.
Updates to iOS 14 ( iOS 13.5.1 / iOS 13.6 / iOS 13.6.1 / iOS 13.7 users )
Usually, iOS users try to update their iOS version as soon as a new iOS version is released. So, once iOS 14 releases, existing users hurry to update to iOS 14. But that is not recommended. If you are in iOS 13.6, recommend to stay in iOS 13.6, instead updating up to iOS 14.
Specially you do not hurry to install such a major version any sooner. The main reason is this iOS 14 version is the first version for major iOS versions. Normally it comes with a lot of bugs. Even though they have tested several iOS 14 betas, it has many unresolved issues.
When we go through the Apple major iOS releases history, it has reported critical errors in major versions and they roll out the minor version within two or three days from the main release. So, we can expect an iOS 14.0.1 minor version within one week of the main release.
Also, Apple has increased its security features harder than ever to prevent jailbreak as usual. So it is better staying on iOS 13.6 if you are interested in Jailbreak. Unc0ver upgrade tool for iOS 13.5.1 & higher versions might release soon hence previous unc0ver version patched via iOS 13.5.1.
Already you are a iOS 13.6 user, it is recommended staying iOS 13.6, without updating iOS 14. Because, it will be easier to find exploits for iOS 13.6 than iOS 14. Most probably, it will have Unc0ver iOS 13.6 Jailbreak before having Unc0ver iOS 14 Jailbreak.
Cydia for iOS 14 / iOS 14.0.1
Cydia is the default App manager for Jailbroken devices. Latest Cydia Update version is 1.1.33.But, still no full functional Cydia for all iOS 14 devices.

In addition Unc0ver will update for iOS 14 / iOS 14.0.1 as well as iOS 13.6.1, iOS 13.6, iOS 13.5.1 to get Cydia.
However, Cydia for iOS 14 / iOS 14.0.1 comes with the Cydia Lite version and can be downloaded from the Zeon repo extractor for iOS 14 running all device models.

In addition, Oysseyra1n script is already tested with iOS 14. It allows Odyssey bootstrap & install Sileo on checkra1n compatible devices. It works perfectly with Sileo without updating.
