The architecture without the “jailbreakd” is much cleaner: it means that there isn’t some weird coordination boundary halfway between Substrate and the jailbreak; and the runtime stability will be a lot better: what people seem to want “jailbreakd” to do involves walking through data structures in the kernel–without the locks required to do that, and in a “slow” manner from userspace (increasing the likelihood of various race conditions)–every time processes spawn and Subtrate has to manage code injection.
I still have some work to do to get the full Cydia Installer stack ported.
He has also mentioned that quite a lot of work needs to be done.
We’ll keep you posted if we have any further updates about i OS 11.1.2 jailbreak.
I now have a “day job” where I spend a bunch of my earnings to pay for it (which I then have to balance with Cydia work).Although work on Substrate is 'almost done', saurik says he still has some work to do to get the full Cydia Installer stack ported.He also expressed concern that we are are reaching an era of jailbreaking where we get a cygwin-like Unix simulation rather than real and high-quality tooling "which had been the core thing that motivated me to jailbreak my own devices."There a lot more detail in saurik's full reddit post linked below.The jailbreak community nowadays has no time to rest as new developments, updates, and releases are pouring in from all the directions.
It all started with the Tai G 2.0 jailbreak tool which was released as a surprise gift and was meant to jailbreak the long-unjailbroken i OS 8.3.
I am working on the i OS 11 updates even so, because despite people like you always trying to dispell people from thanking me for my efforts, I have managed to maintain my passion for the concept of jailbreaking as I truly believe in the concept.
