An iOS 12 – iOS 14.3 exploit has been released by @ModernPwner which could pave the way for an iOS 14 – iOS 14.3 jailbreak. CoolStar, known for Odyssey jailbreak and many other jailbreak tools in the past, has confirmed that he will be working on an iOS 14 – iOS 14.3 jailbreak.
The tweak from @ModernPwner has been confirmed to work on all iPhones and iPads including the ones powered by A14 Bionic like the iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro, and iPad Air 4:
We are Anonymous. We are Legion.

Just minutes after the news broke of the exploit’s release, CoolStar took to Twitter to validate the exploit, adding that if everything worked out, then we could expect an SSH-only Chimera14 release followed by an Odyssey14 jailbreak with full blown support for libhooker tweak injection and Sileo package management. These are, obviously, proxy names and don’t reflect the true name of CoolStar’s upcoming iOS & iPadOS 14 jailbreak tool. As you might recall, CoolStar referred to the Odyssey jailbreak as Chimera13 before officially naming it Odyssey, and the same naming scheme appears to apply here.
Pwn20wnd has been noticeably silent since announcing Substitute v2.0 near the end of last year, and while Substitute v2.0 did get released last month, it remains to be seen if unc0ver will receive any further updates, especially with support for the new exploit.
Sadly, if you have already updated your iPhone to iOS 14.4, there’s not much you can do. Apple has stopped signing both iOS 14.3 and iOS 14.3 RC which means downgrading back to them from iOS 14.4 is no longer possible. As of now, only checkrain jailbreak supports jailbreaking iOS 14 – iOS 14.3 but it only works on iPhone X iPhone 8, iPhone 7, and limited devices.
What’s even more interesting is that @ModernPwner has hinted at another exploit that should work on iOS 14.5 and allows for PAC bypass, though this is currently in progress. However, the developer has decided not to include this in the iOS 12 – 1OS 14.3 exploit. He says that they may publish an iOS 14.5 exploit after Apple patch.”
As always, if you’re using a device on iOS or iPadOS 14.3 or earlier, then you’ll want to stay there and avoid updating your software. Doing so ensures your jailbreak eligibility if or when a tool gets released in the near future.
