He’s back, and this time Italian security researcher Luca Todesco has decided to help the jailbreak community! He recently took to Twitter to talk about the security of iOS 10.2 and at the same time released a JailbreakMe-style WebKit loader for Safari that will help those using the Pangu iOS 9.3.3 jailbreak.
Congratulations to Luca Tedesco and his iOS 9.3.3 jailbreak
Before you get too excited about this news, know that it’s not a complete solution. For example, it won’t load Cydia, it doesn’t work like JailbreakMe, and you need to have a device running iOS 9.3.3 jailbreak for this to work. This is the Pangu 9.3.3 jailbreak; however, if that’s you, that removes some of the certification issues.
Jim Coulter Explains the Difference Between ESG and Impact Investing: Delivering an Alpha Lecture
Many market players associate ESG (environmental, social and governance) with impact investing, but TPG’s Jim Coulter says they are two different things. CNBC’s Andrew Ross Sorkin interviewed Coulter at the CNBC Delivering Alpha conference on September 29, and he explained the differences between ESG and impact investing.

One of the biggest issues with using the Pangu jailbreak is the need to have a developer certificate for the loading app. And while the community is grateful to the Pangu team for creating the semi-unattached jailbreak in the first place, someone had to address the concerns that it introduced as the jailbreak process had to be repeated continuously every time the Pangu iOS 9.3.3 jailbreak certificate expires is irritating.
A Safari based solution
Todesco has created a way around certificate issues. This eliminates user concerns and also makes it easier to jailbreak an iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch running iOS 9.3.3 jailbreak. In fact, it’s so simple that it only takes a “click”. However, as we touched on earlier, you must have a jailbroken device to use it.
To use Todesco’s solution, when the Pangu upload app certificate has expired, go to https://jmbe.qwertyoruiop.com with your iOS device using Safari browser. Once there, you’ll be presented with a page explaining what it is and stating that you need a 64-bit device for this to work. You may have to try a few times for this to work. Clicking on the big word “Go” in the center of the page will initiate the process.
Todesco said, “The tool uses caching for HTML5 web applications. If you add it to your home screen, you don’t need to be connected to the internet after that. A full, unattached jailbreak for iOS 9.3.x is actually possible, but there is a potential risk of put the devices on if the tool had ever been released.
What re-jailbreaking can and cannot do
Todesco’s iOS 9.3.3 jailbreak tool essentially replaces Pangu’s re-jailbreak tool, and it relies on a vulnerability in the Safari mobile browser that allows arbitrary code to run. This replaces the need to use Pangu’s PP app. Here are some clarifications on what it can and cannot do.
- Re-enable iOS 9.3.3 jailbreak using PanGu semi-unattached solution.
- Work without the certificate restrictions that have affected the jailbreak since its release.
- Work directly through the browser without the need for a loading app.
He can not :
- Work on jailbroken devices that are not already running iOS 9.3.3 jailbreak.
- Install Cydia or use it as a substitute for the PanGu jailbreak as it is a reactivation tool
- Works on 32-bit devices which means iPhone 5 and older devices.
- Doing a jailbreak without a tie permanently is not possible with this solution either.
Rare exploits and security issues
So there is a solution that removes the need to re-jailbreak iOS 9.3.3. However, now we need an iOS 10 jailbreak. No one knows when that will be, but Luca Todesco is working on it. In the meantime, he warned those who might be interested in using the Safari solution that it could be used by hackers with nefarious actions in mind. Be aware that using this solution could make you vulnerable.
