The jailbreak community has finally achieved it! Tweak injection in Springboard and apps is now possible through the upcoming LittleRoot application.
At the same time, the developer behind RootHide is in the process of developing a Bootstrap app for iOS 16.0 – 16.6 capable of loading tweaks into apps.
Ever since the puaf_landa exploit was released at the beginning of 2024 extending the compatibility of the KFD exploit, the jailbreak community has been very busy with new hope for a jailbreak on the horizon.
What is Springboard tweak injection?
With Springboard tweak injection we can essentially load real jailbreak tweaks into the Springboard processes which include:
- The Home Screen
- Lock Screen
- Notifications Panel
- Control Center
Aside from this, we can also inject tweaks into any app now, which can modify the behavior of apps allowing mods and tweaked apps and games to be made just like on a traditional jailbreak.
iOS 15 and iOS 16 have been particularly hard to jailbreak on A12+ devices, but with these achievements, we can finally see real jailbreak tweaks working again on modern iPhones.
Springboard tweak injection is a massive step that allows you to customize everything from the home screen icons, layout, and widgets, to the lockscreen, notifications, fonts, sounds, and everything. We’re talking legitimate jailbreak tweaks, not Misaka or Picasso.
RootHide Bootstrap + Springboard Tweak Injection
Today, developer @htrowii has announced full springboard tweak injection on iOS 16.4.1 arm64e with launched modifications and the RootHide bootstrap for app injection.
According to the developer, tweak preferences / settings work as well. They’ve posted a quick demo video on their X account.
LittleRoot Tweak Injector
Today we’ve also received word of @NSBedtime’s LittleRoot application coming soon, in a few days.
This application also achieves Springboard tweak injection which has allowed one of the testers to add a nice widget to their Home Screen as a demo.
What iOS versions will be supported?
While the final list of supported devices and iOS versions remains unknown at the moment, since many of these apps use the KFD exploit in the background, we can safely assume at least iOS 16.0 up to iOS 16.5 will be supported on all modern (A12+) devices.
According to developer @NSBedtime, they may work on tweak injection even for iOS 17 if a kernel exploit gets released.
This is going to be interesting. The jailbreak community may soon be able to run advanced tweaks on the Home Screen and in Apps.
