Manticore will add all package managers with the option to select one as your choice. That means selectable package managers including Cydia, Sileo, Installer and Zebra. Manticore will be the first jailbreak where you can choose your package manager.
Also, they will include dynamic jailbreak detection, to detect, disable/enable previous jailbreak installations on the device.
Also, developers working together with Hayden to integrate Procursus bootstraps as well as mostly Libhooker tweak Injection platform.
Jailbreak Methods for Manticore
IPA+ computer based Method – Manticore will be an IPA + computer based Jailbreak like all standard Jailbreak. Manticore will come with MAC & Windows support. So it will need to sideload the Manticore IPA using any Jailbreak IPA installer such as Altstore or sideloadly using MAC or Windows computer.
Online method (No PC) – No guarantee about Manticore Online Jailbreak. Sometimes it comes with online support. That means you can complete the Manticore Jailbreak process without PC (No PC). There are many Online service providers submit online plist for full jailbreak. But Apple blocked the Plist for IPA regularly once reported.

What other jailbreak does Mantico compete with?
It has many Jailbreak processing uses the same cicuta virosa kernel LPE exploit at the same time. Here are some of them.
Unc0ver Jailbreak for iOS 14 – iOS 14.3
Unc0ver Jailbreak was the most reliable, successful jailbreak tool. It has ugardes each single version since iOS 11. Their latest version added support for iOS 14 – iOS 14.3. Also, no double it will add other iOS 14 version support in future. This is the most competitive jailbreak tool for manticore, not only mantico but also every other jailbreak.
Odyssey / Taurine Jailbreak iOS 14 – iOS 14.3
cicuta virosa exploit developer Modern Pwner gave permission officially to develop the exploit for Odyssey. Odyssey was a successful jailbreak developed by Coolstar and it was available since iOS with different names as iOS 11 to iOS 11.4.1 – Electra / iOS 12 to iOS 12.5.1 Chimera / iOS 13 to iOS 13.7 Odyssey. Now, it has been released as Taurine jailbreak for iOS 14 – iOS 14.3. This is a competitive Jailbreak tool for Mantico.
RoolessJB for iOS 14 – iOS 14.3
The developer Brandon Plank (Kayla) updated RootlessJB 14 for iOS 14 – iOS 14.3 using cicuta virosa exploit. He also released PlankFilza using this. After that he turned to the RoolessJB 14 project. It was available for older iOS versions up to iOS 12.4.8. Initially this was developed by Jake James, then project opensouced and Brandon Plank developed Rootless Jailbreak for iOS 12 versions. However, this does not install Cydia or Sileo once the jailbreak process is completed, it just let you install Jailbreak tweaks. So, roolessJB can not beat the new Manticore Tool.
C0met Jailbreak for iOS 14 – iOS 14.3
This another new upcoming jailbreak developed using the same exploit. iOS developer maverickdev1 developing this C0met Jailbreak tool for same iOS 14 – iOS 14.3. He is turkish developer and new to twitter also. We haven’t heard much about this developer too. Also, this is a new Jailbreak tool like manticore, so we can not compare with these two yet.
Pattern-f is also going to release a new Jailbreak for IOS 14 – iOS 14.3 using the same Modern Pwner’s exploit. Previously, he demonstrated iOS 14.1 on iPhone 12 (A12+ device) using LPE exploit. Also, he is working as a macOS security researcher and reported several vulnerabilities in the past. Therefore, we can expect something worth.
Currently available alternative jailbreak for Manticore
We can recommend the following two iOS 14 – iOS 14.3 Jailbreak tools as best solutions. You can use these alternatives until Manticore Release.
Zeon – Zeon is not a standard jailbreak method. It is a jailbreak repo extractor. It allows you to install Jailbreak applications on iOS 14 – iOS 14.5. It has a completely online process. Like Manticore, Zeon is compatible with all device models including iPhone 11 models and iPhone 12 Models.
Checkra1n – Checkrain is the only available semi-tethered Jailbreak tool for the iOS 14 – iOS 14.5. However this is an advanced method. That is the MAC/Linux Computer based method. Also, this is not supported with latest device models, only available for A5-A11 devices.
