What is Semi-tethered palera1n jailbreak?
For this method, also called rootfull jailbreak, you need at least 16 GB of free internal storage; then, you can install a semi-tethered palera1n jailbreak iOS 15 – 16 on your device. It uses around 16 GB of storage; don’t use this mode if you have less storage available.
Moreover, if you’re on A 10 – A11 devices, you cannot have passcode/touch id/face id on your device; better to disable it beforehand. I know what you’ll be thinking, how’d you install a specific one?
What is Tethered palera1n jailbreak?
If you’re not using semi-tethered, you’re installing tethered jailbreak iOS 16, which means you can boot your device only when it’s connected to a computer.
Prerequisites to download for Palera1n Palen1x Windows Jailbreak
There are prerequisites you need to download before you start the process; some tools you need to have on your Windows PC; are below.
Download Palen1x Palera1n-C Palen1x ISO file
First, you need to download palera1n palen1x ISO file on a Windows PC, as you used to do with checkra1n windows PC.
Here is the link to download palera1n windows palen1x ISO file; they have made it the index page, so download the amd64 file, the latest one, and you’ll find the latest one from the date column.
Download Balenaetcher Tool
Moreover, you need to download the balenaetcher tool; I’ll use this to make the palen1x ISO bootable USB. Here is the direct download link to balenaetcher.
Download iTunes & iCloud on Windows.
You need to have iTunes and iCloud installed on your PC for this jailbreak, and that needs to be from Apple’s website, not from the Microsoft store. Here is iTunes, and here is the iCloud download link; go here; click on the skip button at the top right corner, and it’ll download.
IMPORTANT: For iOS 16 Palera1n Jailbreak Users
CHECK IT OUT RIGHT NOW! If you are on iOS 16 firmware and have jailbroken your device earlier, you need to restore your device first and then attempt this palera1n palen1x ISO method.
Also, disable the passcode, touch id, or face ID if you’re on iPhone 8 or above devices, and then you’ll be able to install the jailbreak. Don’t worry; you can set it later; here are the steps to set the passcode on palera1n devices; you can set it after the jailbreak.
Make Palera1n Windows Palen1x ISO Bootable USB
- First, attach an empty USB to the PC; any storage USB is good to go for it.
- Install the balenaetcher tool, and open it as administrator on Windows PC.
- Once it opens, select the downloaded palen1x ISO file, you can select it by clicking the button Flash from File options and clicking on the Flash button.
- This will make palen1x bootable USB to install palera1n jailbreak on your device.
- Once the bootable process is done, now restart your computer; the next process is to install palera1n Windows on iPhone using palen1x windows bootable USB.
How to install Palera1n Windows using Palen1x bootable USB
Step 1. Restart and enter in BIOS settings on windows
As the bootable USB is ready, keep it connected to the PC, do not disconnect; you must boot that on a windows PC for jailbreak iOS 16 download.
Restart your pc and go into BIOS settings; the different key is used for different PCs or Laptops, I have to press the F12 key right after the restart.
My other laptop works with the ESCAPE key. You can try these; if these don’t work, you can check on google how to enter into the BIOS mode.
Step 2. Boot from Palen1x bootable USB
Go inside the BIOS settings, and boot the system through the attached palen1x jailbreak bootable USB.
Go to the boot option, and then go into the Boot Type Order.
You need to either select the USB and hit enter or move the USB to the top of the list and save; for me, I have to put it on the top and save and restart it, and my windows PC booted through the attached USB.
Use the arrow keys to change the Boot order settings; you can see all the instructions at the bottom of your computer screen.
Once the settings are updated, save and exit; I pressed the F10 key to save and restart.
Step 3. Install Palera1n Windows using Palen1x
Once you restart after the boot settings are updated, you’ll see this screen on your PC; you’re going well.
Here you’ll see the 5 options, select the first one and hit enter. However, just in case you selected the wrong option and want to go back to the main screen again, press the ESC key. This will take you to the main screen again, where you can select the palera1n option.
Moving forward, select the palera1n option and hit enter.
Installing Rootfull palera1n or Rootless palera1n palen1x jailbreak?
By default, the Rootfull(semi-tethered) option is checked, which you can see at the top left corner of the screen.
But which option is better for you? Rootless or Rootfull? I have already told you about both options above; which one to use, scroll up and decide.
I am using the Rootful option as I have substantial free space on my device; just in case you’re going with the palera1n rootless (tethered) jailbreak option, to change it, go into the Switch option on the screen and change it to the rootless option, and select OK.
Settings in Options section (necessary for rootfull (semi-tethered palera1n jailbreak))
If you go inside the Options section, there are multiple options where the debug option is, by default, selected.
But if you’re installing semi-tethered palera1n palen1x jailbreak or rootfull palera1n jailbreak, you need to select the first option (create fakeFS) as well, not necessarily in rootless or tethered mode.
Press the space bar on the option to select it, again remove the selection in the list, and return to the main screen.
Step 4. Attach iPhone / iPad with the PC
Now attach the device you want to install palen1x jailbreak on with the computer. Hit the trust on the device popup.
Now select the start option (probably selected already) on the computer screen and hit enter.
Step 5. Put the device into the DFU mode
Now put your device into DFU mode. Now, this is one of the main parts where users see an issue that their iPhone comes out of DFU mode when jailbreaking with Palera1n jailbreak iOS 15 – 16; read below to sort out this issue.
Do not use any other method to put your device into DFU mode! Do the one I am using. Otherwise, your device will come out of DFU mode during the palera1n jailbreak process; it may sound strange, but many of you already have faced an issue that the iPhone comes out of DFU mode while the palera1n jailbreak iOS 15 processes, including me.
I used this method to put my iPhone 7 in DFU mode. Press and hold the Power + Volume Down button for 10 seconds, then only leave the Power button; keep holding the Volume down button for the next 8 seconds, then leave this button too.
Palera1n Palen1x windows Jailbreak is being installed
The process is going on; you’ll see the Apple logo first on your device, then the jailbreak process; it may take a little while, around ten minutes; keep your patience.
If you see any errors regarding USB LIB, don’t worry; ignore those errors.
Fix A9 and below device stuck on the Pongo OS screen
While the process continues, if you’re on A9 and below devices, you must rerun the jailbreak if your device gets stuck on PongoOS booting after ten minutes. For that, type Ctrl+C on the PC, then type the exit command and hit enter.
You’ll be on the main palen1x jailbreak screen, and from here, rerun the jailbreak process you just did earlier.
Once the process is completed, the device will reboot.
At this point, you may or may not see the Done message on the PC. If you do not see the Done message, type Ctrl+C on the PC, and type the exit command.
At this point, we have installed palera1n windows palen1x jailbreak, but we also need to install palera1n loader on our device. That’s why we must return to the main palera1n palen1x screen.
Below I have shown how to install palera1n loader with palen1x jailbreak.
How to install palera1n loader with palen1x jailbreak
Step 1. Deselect all options except one
Once you’re on the main palen1x screen, go into the options section, and make sure all the items except the last one (debug) are deselected.
To deselect an item, highlight that with the arrow key and press the space bar. Once all items except the debug item are deselected, press enter button to come back to the main screen. From here, hit enter on the start option.
Step 2. Put your device in the DFU mode again
As you hit the start option, look at the PC screen to see if the device is detected, then put your device in DFU mode.
If it’s not detecting, disconnect the device and connect it again to the PC, and also hit the trust button.
First, put the device into recovery mode and then into DFU mode. Scroll up, and in step 5, I have shown which process you need to follow to put your device into the DFU mode, do not use any other method for it.
Once you do it, the process will continue, and it will not take long to install palera1n loader using palen1x on the device.
Once the device boots back up, you’ll see the palera1n loader on the device’s home screen. Make sure the device is connected to the internet to show that up. You can uninstall it if you don’t like, here is the step by step tutorial to unjailbreak palera1n palen1x jailbreak.
How to install sileo on palera1n windows jailbreak iOS 15 – 16
Open the palera1n app from the home screen, and tap the install button.
Tap the Allow button on the popup and then the respring button (it will show where you tap the install button).
Once you respring it, you’ll see Sileo installed on your device, open the sileo first, and upgrade all the packages before you install any tweaks. Here is the list of palera1n jailbreak compatible tweaks, along with all the repos and how you can install them.
As it’s a semi-tethered jailbreak, which means once your device is rebooted, you’ll be out of the jailbreak state. Now you will probably be thinking that you need to repeat all the installation steps again! NO! that’s not the case. You do not need to create the fakeFS every time; it’s needed once; you only need to reinstall the palera1n loader on your device to re-jailbreak with palera1n palen1x ISO.
How to reinstall palera1n loader with palen1x ISO USB
- First, go to the palera1n option screen, see the image below, and hit enter on palera1n.
- On the next screen, go into the options, and deselect every option here except the last one (debug). To deselect any selected item, highlight that with arrow keys and press the space bar.
- Return to the main screen, where the first option is the start option. Hit enter on the start option.
- Connect your device if it’s not connected to the computer.
- The device will go into recovery mode; then, you need to enter it into DFU mode; all these instructions are also on the screen.
- Once the device is in the DFU mode, the process will continue, do not worry if you see LIBUSB errors on a computer screen.
- Once your device is turned back on, the Sileo will start working again! the palera1n loader is also reinstalled.
