How to download Cydia for iOS 16.1 or iOS 16.1.1
The main purpose of Jailbreaking is to download a Jailbreak app manager such as Cydia, Sileo or Zebra etc. Cydia is the most popular Jailbreak app manager compared with others. Cydia will automatically install on your iOS 16.1 iPhones or iPadOS 15.1 iPads after the jailbreak process. Unfortunately, there is still no iOS 16.1 semi-untethered or semi-tethered jailbreak tool to Install full functional Cydia. The latest iOS 16.1.1 is also facing the same issue. You cannot find iOS 16.1.1 jailbreak (semi-untethered or semi-tethered ) tools as well.
You only can install Cydia lite on iOS 16.1 & iOS 16.1.1 devices using the following methods. However, you cannot install all the Cydia features with Cydia lite.
Install Cydia with Zylon
- First install the Zylon using the above button
- Open the zylon, go to Jailbreak category in Zylon.

- Launch the zeon & go to the repo extractor tab.
- Open Get repos. http://ios.cyrepo.tk/repo will be available under the App Managers.

Semi-untethered Jailbreak for iOS 16.1 / iOS 16.1.1
Unc0ver Jailbreak – Unc0ver was the most reliable semi-untethered jailbreak since iOS 11 developed by Pwn20Wnd. Unfortunately, unc0ver does not support iOS 16.1 or other iOS 15 versions. Even though it does not support iOS 14.6 onwards. Recently it was upgraded to iOS 14.4 – iOS 14.5.1 running A12 – A14 devices with Fugu14. Before this it worked up to iOS 14.3 on all device models without any issue.
However, we could install the Unc0ver Jailbreak IPA with iOS 16.1 running the latest iPhone and iPad models. But the iOS 16.1 jailbreak process couldn’t be done. When we ran the Unc0ver Jailbreak IPA it got the UNSUPPORTED ERROR MESSAGE at the moment.
But unc0ver will upgrade for iOS 16.1 / iOS 16.1.1 very soon hence it has found many exploits for iOS 15 & higher versions right now. Until then you can experience the Unc0ver virtual jailbreak process.
Taurine Jailbreak – Taurine was another popular semi-untethered jailbreak for iOS 14 – iOS 14.3. It’s default package manager is Sileo. CoolStar developed this toll since iOS 11 under various brand names such as Electra for iOS 11 – iOS 11.4.1, Chimera for iOS 12 – iOS 12.5.5, Odyssey for iOS 13 – iOS 13.7. The Odyssey team is going to release another rootless jailbreak by the name of Cheyote jailbreak targeting iOS 15 to iOS 16.1.1.
However, if we were able to install the Taurine iPA on the iOS 16.1 version, it couldn’t complete the jailbreak. That is because at the moment, it only supports iOS 14 – iOS 14.3 only. Once exploit is released for iOS 16.1 Taurine Jailbreak will update for iOS 15 & higher versions. Already libhooker tweak injection method updates for iOS 15 and higher versions and here is the latest news about iOS 15-iOS 16.1.1 rootless jailbreak from the developer.
Fugu Jailbreak – Fugu is a newly released untethered jailbreak by LinusHenze. It is an open-source jailbreak tool based on the checkm8 exploit. Recently fugu14 released with adding support for iOS 14 to iOS 14.5.1. It is available for all A12- A14 devices. Unc0ver also upgraded to iOS 14.4 – iOS 14.5.1 jailbreak using this Fugu14 project. However, it bi complicated and still under development. On the other hand, developer LinusHenze is a very active member in the jailbreak community. He contributed to several exploits and vulnerabilities for the past few years. So we can expect Fugu jailbreak which is compatible with iOS 15 – iOS 16.1.1 too.
iOS 16.1 Root Access
Semi-untethered and untethered Jailbreak tools (such as Unc0ver, Checkra1n, Taurine etc) insert 3rd party files to the iOS file system root. However, there is no iOS 16.1 Jailbreak tool available to access the iOS file system. Recently @AppleDry5 released FilzaEscaped15 with root access for iOS 15 – iOS 16.1
iBundles, Hexxa, Zeon are available as iOS 16.1 jailbreak solutions available to install 3rd party and Jailbreak apps. Also Siri scripting and Cloud hacking methods are available. Cloud hacking and Siri scripting are the most popular methods to customize the iOS versions and install themes and tweaks. You can use the mobile configuration method to install themes and apps for iOS 16.1 too. Repo extractors such as Hexxa and Zeon also use the Siri scripting method to install tweaks. Refizo ( iBundles ) is using a cloud hacking method to customize iOS 16.1.
So you don’t need to worry. You can get the whole iOS 16.1 Jailbreak experience from the above methods until find the jailbreak tools for iOS 16.1 / iOS 16.1.1 versions. John Akerblom has released a kernel exploit for iOS 16.1 and iOS 16.1.1 version. This exploit works on iOS 15 too. This will be a great help to find jailbreak tools for iOS 16.1 / iOS 16.1.1.
What is the difference?
Difference between iOS system root access methods and non-system root access methods.
Cons of System root access
This is the main issue that the jailbreak community faces. Your device performance will slow after inserting files into your iOS file system.
And your device can be rebooted repeatedly after the Jailbreak process.
However, no iOS 16.1 Jailbreak solution that inserts files into the iOS system root.
You cannot claim a warranty when a tool insert files into the default iOS system folder ( break the Apple system room)
However, you are safe from all the above iOS 16.1 Jailbreak and Jailbreak alternative solutions.
Some default iOS apps (especially security and banking-related apps ) detect 3rd party files of iOS system root and refuse to open.
Virus and malware
However, you are safe from all the above iOS 16.1 Jailbreak and Jailbreak alternative solutions.
Pros of System root access
Some Jailbreak apps / tweaks must have iOS system root access to function. So these Jailbreak apps and tweaks won’t work with iOS 16.1.
Unlock vs Jailbreak
Most people confuse iOS device unlocking and jailbreaking. But these are two different stories.
We are aware that jailbreaking is removing Apple restrictions to accessing third-party apps, especially those that are not available in Apple’s store. Jailbreak is directly affected by the iOS version. However we cannot find any semi untethered or semi tethered jailbreak tool for iOS 16.1 or iOS 16.1.1 devices yet.
But unlocking is enabling switching carriers compatible with multiple networks. Normally, iPhones are “locked” to only work on the telecom network of that specific wireless carrier. Unlocking is the process of removing this restriction to be used with any wireless network. According to the iPhone models, there may be restrictions even after unlocking. That is because iPhones that support only CDMA cannot be used on a GSM network. Even if unlocking is not affected to the iOS version directly, it needs to have a jailbroken iDevice to unlock your iDevice. Because of not having a proper jailbreak tool for iOS 16.1 or iOS 16.1.1 versions, unlocking iOS 16.1 & iOS 16.1.1 iPhones are impossible.
Hardware jailbreak is a different method and totally combined with the hardware component. For the hardware Jailbreaking, you must spare the housing of your iPhone. It is not popular among the users like software jailbreak because it needs special skill to spare the phone. Also, it is not available for all the devices. Following are the most popular features with Hardware jailbreak.
Speaker lights -The light flashes in turn when you call or speak,and it will flash with the music rhythm. It will definitely make your iPhone more unique.
Logo back lights – Randomly change the color each second automatically,brighter the screen, the shinier the Logo could become. It will give a dashing look for an iPhone.
You can find more hardware jailbreak features from here.
Also it is available Hardware based jailbreak method too. One and only hardware based jailbreak tool is Checkra1n jailbreak. But it is not working Checkrain jailbreak tool with iOS 16.1 and iOS 16.1.1 versions as well as A12 and above devices. Checkra1n jailbreak works up to iOS 14.8.1 versions running on A11 devices only.
