We are so close to taking iOS 15 jailbreak to a new dimension with Odyssey’s latest reveal on Cheyote jailbreak tool that supports iOS 15 to iOS 15.1.1 as well as similar iPadOS versions. Even though we have no idea of the actual release date of Cheyote jailbreak, the sleek UI unveiling speaks up for its near completion.
For an iOS 15 jailbreak enthusiast, it’s impossible not to explore similarities and distinct technical differences between Cheyote jailbreak and other jailbreak tools introduced by the Odyssey team. Here’s everything about Cheyote jailbreak!
Cheyote Jailbreak supported iOS Versions and Devices
- Cheyote jailbreak supports iOS 15 to iOS 15.1.1. To be more precise, the list goes on as iOS 15, iOS 15.0.1, iOS 15.0.2, iOS 15.1 and iOS 15.1.1.
- Similarly, the array of supported iPadOS versions go on as iPadOS 15, iPadOS 15.0.1, iPadOS 15.0.2, iPadOS 15.1 and iPadOS 15.1.1.
- Also, as per Odyssey team's announcement, they may look into the tool’s support for iOS 15.2 - 15.4.1 later on. However, as the Odyssey team made it clear not to update iOS 15.5 any further, it’s quite apparent that we can’t keep hopes on iOS 15.5.
- Cheyote jailbreak initially supported all devices with A12 and newer on iOS 15 – 15.1.1. To be more specific, if you have iPhone 12, iPhone 11, iPhone SE, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR, then you can use Cheyote.
- But with Odyssey team's latest update, now you can use Cheyote jailbreak for A11 - A14 devices.
How to install Cheyote Jailbreak?
Since the Odyssey team released all their previous jailbreak tools as IPA-based tools, there is a high possibility that Cheyote jailbreak also would be the same. If that’s the case, you can make use of sideloads methods like AltStore and Sideloadly to install it. However, now you can download our Cheyote online installer below, so that once Cheyote is officially out, you can immediately go ahead jailbreaking your iOS 15 - iOS 15.1.1 or iPadOS 15 - iPadOs 15.1.1 device.Cheyote Online Installer →

FAQ on Cheyote Jailbreak
1. Will untethered jailbreak be possible with Cheyote?
Cheyote jailbreak shares the similar aspect of being semi-untethered like its siblings developed by CoolStar. That means whenever you restart your device, the jailbreak will be removed from it, so you’ll have to re-jailbreak it. However, with the recent discovery of Linus Henze (Fugu14 jailbreak developer) on the permanent sign in any IPA file on jailbroken devices up to iOS 15.4.1, we can have a fair share of hope that it will work positively for Cheyote jailbreak too. So, untethered jailbreak will be possible with Cheyote.
2. Why does Cheyote support rootless jailbreaking?
Devices with rootless jailbreak won’t yield access to OS/root, instead only have access to the /var directory of the device. This makes it a lot safer alternative for the device, as rootless jailbreak saves the system files from being modified to an extent of unrepairable damage. Another perk of rootless jailbreak is that third-party apps that block access on the jailbroken device will no longer be able to detect that the device is jailbroken, hence will work hassle-free.
The hottest news on iOS 15.4.1 - iOS 15 jailbreak is the Palera1n jailbreak tool that was introduced most recently as the first semi-untethered jailbreak tool on checkm8. Only the developer version is still available for Palera1n jailbreak and we'll update you immediately on the public release and the progress. Stay tuned with us!
