How to use Palera1n-C Jailbreak for iOS 15 – iOS 17.3

The latest version of Palera1n, Palera1n-C, is now available for iOS, Linux, and macOS, and it greatly improves the jailbreak experience for iOS 15 and iOS 16. Also, if you’re eager to install customizations, you can easily execute Palera1n-C from a Windows PC, which makes jailbreaking generally more accessible.

About Palera1n-C Jailbreak

For iOS versions 15–17, there is a C version of the Palera1n Jailbreak script called Palera1n-C. In addition to adding plenty of new features, the latest version makes jailbreaking more easier. Be advised that Palera1n-C is only compatible with A8 to A11 devices running arm64 iOS or iPadOS. The official palera1n script will be replaced with this version.

With Palera1n, users can jailbreak their smartphone in two different modes: fakefs-rootful and rootless. Keep in mind that Palera1n-C achieves a semi-tethered jailbreak by making use of the checkm8 exploit. Users will have to run the Palera1n program once again to go back into the jailbroken condition after resetting the device.

Earlier versions of the Palera1n jailbreak required a plethora of command line tools to execute a convoluted combination of shell scripts and Python code. But now, all of that has been condensed into one simple command line tool thanks to Palera1n-C.

Although Palera1n-C is currently in beta, it may be downloaded as a pre-built tool, which streamlines and expands users’ access to the jailbreak process. To improve the jailbreak experience, Palera1n-C includes several additional features. Among them, the ability to activate A10 (X) devices with a passcode stands apart. Running Palera1n-c in PongoOS state may be necessary for anything below A9.

Note: Only semi-tethered jailbreak methods are available now; tethered jailbreak is no longer supported. Only rootless jailbreaks are compatible with smartphones that have 16 GB of storage capacity.

On top of that, this version loads all jailbreak tweaks automatically. This makes it such that you won’t have to launch the Palera1n loader app’s “Do All” command every time you boot into the jailbroken environment.

With its latest release, the Palera1n loader program can now detect and adapt to rootless and rootful jailbreak modes. Once you’ve jailbroken your device, the “Install button” will disappear from the app. Compatible with iOS 15–iOS 17.1.

With the exception of the initial download, Palera1n-C no longer necessitates an Internet connection—one of the most notable enhancements. Making a RamDisk or installing other command line programs like gester or pyimg4 are also rendered unnecessary by the utility.

A more efficient and effective jailbreak procedure is now carried out fully on the iOS device, leading to a greater success rate. Lastly, Palera1n-C is a more space-efficient alternative than its predecessor due to its significantly smaller size, with a file size of 7 MB.

If your jailbroken device already has Sileo installed, Palera1n-C will install Sileo Nightly instead. Also, if you have an iOS device that has already been jailbroken, you can use the Palera1n-C program to jailbreak another device. The success rate of completing the jailbreak may be lower with this approach, though.

With the MIT license in place, Palera1n-C became available to the public as an open-source project. You may find it on the GitHub repository, where both developers and users can access the source code. C provided a strong and efficient basis for the project’s development, which allowed it to become the jailbreak tool that it is today.

A new method has emerged that Windows PC users can use to access Palera1n Jailbreak. If you want to jailbreak your iOS smartphone using the cutting-edge Palera1n-C tool, you may get Palen1x, a small Linux distribution (around 25 MB) tailored for the job. You can install this LiveCD on a USB stick and then launch it from a Windows computer.

There are some noteworthy enhancements to the most recent Palera1n-C Jailbreak version. To start with, it has expanded the spectrum of devices that can be jailbroken by adding support for iOS 17–iOS 17.1. The jailbreak has also included support for BindFS 16.0+, giving users even more options for personalizing their devices.

This release also includes a new loader app that has been redesigned to improve the user experience. Thanks to bakera1n, the app is now 90% smaller (around 300kb) and runs much faster. Additionally, the loader now contains Chinese and Japanese localizations and has been completely redone with UIKit.

To top it all off, the new loader mimics Dopamine by randomly creating a string jb-XXXXXXXX that contains the procursus folder. Users are guaranteed enhanced security and anonymity with this unique feature. Users can now more easily monitor the jailbreak’s progress thanks to the updated version’s plenty of debugging information and download progress meter.

Finally, improved bootstraps and an option to hide the environment are part of the new Palera1n-C Jailbreak version, which is useful for jailbreak detection (on rootless). The most recent version of Palera1n-C Jailbreak is more efficient as a whole because of these upgrades.

Supported devices

Jailbreaking is compatible with all A8-A11 systems packed onto a single chip. The official list of iOS devices that can be jailbroken with Palera1n-C is available down below. All versions of iOS 15—iPhone X (GSM), 8, 7, and 6s—were successfully jailbroken during testing.

iOS 15.0 – 15.7.3

  • A8: Phone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPad Mini 4.
  • A8X: iPad Air 2.
  • A9: iPhone 6S, iPhone 6S Plus, iPhone SE, iPad (2017) 5th Generation.
  • A9X: iPad Pro (12.9 in.) 1st generation, iPad Pro (9.7 in.).
  • A10: iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, iPad (2018, 6th generation), iPad (2019, 7th generation) (iOS 14 not supported).
  • A10X: iPad Pro 10.5” (2017), iPad Pro 12.9” 2nd Gen (2017).
  • A11: iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X.

iOS 16.0 – 17.3

  • A11: iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X.

Note: Palera1n is still not compatible with iOS 16.4. Any attempt to mount the rootfs will result in an infinite loop. With iOS 16.4, you shouldn’t jailbreak.

How to run Palera1n-C on macOS

If you’re using macOS, you should download Palera1n-C, a free tool. To prevent malware and unauthorized developers, macOS has included stringent security measures. Consequently, you might have problems with the app’s installation or opening. Here are the steps to open Palera1n-C on macOS:

  1. Type the following commands in the terminal app:

sudo xattr -r ./palera1n-macos-universal
sudo xattr -rd ./palera1n-macos-universal
sudo xattr -d ./palera1n-macos-universal
sudo xattr -r ./palera1n-macos-universal ​​​​​​​sudo chmod +x ./palera1n-macos-universal chmod 755 ./palera1n-macos-universal

2. Double-click on the palera1n-macos-universal app.

3. Tap on Apple icon on the top left bar then, System Preferences, Privacy & Security.

4. Allow the palera1n-macos-universal app on “Allow anyway” in the Security area.

5. Open palera1n-macos-universal app in terminal.

./palera1n-macos-arm64 -fc
or for rootless jailbreak
./palera1n-macos-arm64 -l

6. Go into DFU mode and do as it instructs on the screen.

Note: There is a problem with being stuck in pongoOS on A9(X) and older devices. To copy anything in the terminal window, hit Control + C. For example, to create BindFS, you may use sudo palera1n -B -f. To construct FakeFS, you can use sudo palera1n -C -f.

Migrate from

Note that restoring the rootfs is necessary before trying the new jailbreak if you have previously used a Palera1n tethered jailbreak. Here are the steps to restore rootfs using the script:

  1. Open your palera1n folder, or make a copy of it if you need to.
  2. Execute the following command to restore the rootfs: ./ –tweaks <your iOS version> –restorerootfs
  3. Do not forget to restart usbmuxd: sudo systemctl stop usbmuxd sudo usbmuxd -f -p
  4. Use the command line to run Palera1n-C and then follow the instructions displayed on the screen.

Note: When you are jailbroken on A11, you need to turn off your password. When you are jailbroken on iOS 16, you need to reset your device before you can use palera1n-c on A11.
