How to switch from Serotonin Jailbreak to Dopamine 2 Jailbreak

As of this writing, the Dopamine 2 full-fledged rootless jailbreak has just been accessible for a week, and we’ve gotten a ton of inquiries regarding its suitability for usage by would-be jailbreakers.

A large number of those would-be jailbreakers have utilized the RootHide bootstrap or Serotonin “semi-jailbreak” in the past or currently.

Before utilizing the Dopamine 2 jailbreak program, there are a few things you need know, regardless of whether you have used the RootHide bootstrap or Serotonin “semi-jailbreak.”

To help our readers make the best selection possible, we will try to cover all of that information in today’s article.

Why you should use Dopamine 2 jailbreak?

The second version of the well-liked Dopamine rootless jailbreak tool is called the Dopamine v2 jailbreak. The reason for the Dopamine 2 moniker is that, unlike the first Dopamine jailbreak, which was limited to arm64e (A12-A15) devices running iOS & iPadOS 15.0–15.4.1, Dopamine now supports a wider range of device and firmware combinations, which essentially look like this:

  • Support for 15.0–16.6.1 for iOS and iPadOS on A9–A11 devices
  • Support for A12-A14 & M1 phones running iOS & iPadOS 15.0-16.5.1 and 16.6 betas 1-4
  • Support for A15-A16 & M2 devices, iOS & iPadOS 15.0-16.5 and 16.6 betas 1-4

This is where things get a bit trickier, though, if you have previously installed any of the aforementioned hacks on your device.

To guarantee the easiest jailbreak experience possible, make sure you follow the right steps before using Dopamine 2.


If you’ve ever used the RootHide Bootstrap or Serotonin Jailbreak

You will need to fully uninstall the RootHide Procursus-based bootstrap and the Serotonin “semi-jailbreak” before jailbreaking with Dopamine 2 if you were one of those people who didn’t want to wait for a jailbreak to release and installed it to help you get through the lengthy wait.

It is highly recommended that you utilize the feature within the Serotonin app that allows you to deactivate the “semi-jailbreak” for Serotonin. The process of removing the outdated utility from your device will begin with this.

Remove the RootHide Procursus-based bootstrap from your device after removing the Serotonin “semi-jailbreak.”

Similar to the Serotonin app, the RootHide bootstrap app should provide a removal option on your device. Once more, we highly advise making use of this feature since it removes the RootHide bootstrap and any leftovers from your device.

Before using Dopamine 2 to jailbreak your device, you must uninstall the RootHide Procursus-based bootstrap and the Serotonin “semi-jailbreak” from your device. The jailbreak will not function correctly if any of these is installed first.

If the RootHide bootstrap was all you used

In case you installed the RootHide Procursus-based bootstrap on your device but chose to wait for a full-fledged jailbreak instead of installing the Serotonin “semi-jailbreak,” you still need to remove the RootHide bootstrap entirely before using Dopamine 2 to jailbreak your device.

The RootHide bootstrap employs its own methods that may conflict with the Dopamine v2 jailbreak, even if you did not install the Serotonin “semi-jailbreak.”

As a result, you should wait to try installing the jailbreak after removing the bootstrap.

The RootHide bootstrap program has an option that lets you uninstall it from your device, as was covered in the section above. Using this option is highly recommended as it will effectively delete the bootstrap and all of its leftovers from your device.

If you used only TrollStore previosuly

Nothing needs to be removed if you have TrollStore installed on your device but haven’t utilized the RootHide Procursus-based bootstrap or the Serotonin “semi-jailbreak.”

You’re ahead of the game if you already have TrollStore installed because you’ll need it to install the Dopamine 2 jailbreak and opa334 recommends this installation method instead of AltStore, Scarlet or Sideloadly.

TrollStore won’t stop you from jailbreaking your Dopamine 2; in fact, it can strengthen your jailbreak by enabling you to permanently sign.ipa and.tipa files that you wouldn’t normally be able to install on an iPhone or iPad without sideloading.

If you haven’t yet installed any tweaks yet

You’re in luck if your device is still bone stock and you haven’t installed the RootHide Procursus-based bootstrap, the Serotonin “semi-jailbreak,” or TrollStore. As long as your smartphone has a compatible firmware version, you can install the Dopamine v2 jailbreak. If you passed over the compatible device and firmware combinations that we covered above, we advise that you study them.

Final thoughts

Installing your jailbreak correctly from the beginning is crucial since it will save you trouble and reduce the chance that you may lose it later on because of instability, boot loops, or device restoration.

In summary, you must uninstall any previous versions of the RootHide Procursus-based bootstrap and the Serotonin “semi-jailbreak” before utilizing Dopamine 2. You can start installing the Dopamine 2 jailbreak right away whether you only have TrollStore installed or if you haven’t installed TrollStore at all.
