Although the unc0ver jailbreak by Pwn20wnd was the first to implement support for iOS & iPadOS 14.0-14.3, those who’ve been patiently holding out for CoolStar’s iOS & iPadOS 14-based jailbreak instead are going to be in for a treat.
Steering away from the initial plan to launch an SSH-only iOS & iPadOS 14 jailbreak first before launching a full-fledged iOS & iPadOS 14 jailbreak afterward, CoolStar has instead decided to focus all efforts on the full-fledged option — the fruits of which are now available to the general public.
The new jailbreak, which has been officially named Taurine after being unofficially referred to as “Odyssey14” by CoolStar over the past several months, supports iOS and iPadOS 14.0-14.3 with the help of the new cicuta_verosa exploit by @ModernPwner:
To further clarify, Taurine can jailbreak all devices that run the aforementioned firmware versions, including Apple’s latest A14 chip-equipped iPhone 12 & 12 Pro lineup. The unc0ver jailbreak also supports these devices running the same firmware, but Taurine is a different jailbreak with an entirely different bootstrap and is maintained by a separate jailbreak team.
Taurine’s Procursus bootstrap is different from unc0ver’s because it incorporates the Sileo package manager for tweak browsing & installations and libhooker for tweak injection; this contrasts to unc0ver’s Cydia package manager and Substitute for tweak injection. Both flavors get the job done, so it really comes down to personal preference and what you enjoy using more.
Those interested in trying the Taurine jailbreak for iOS & iPadOS 14.0-14.3 can download it from the official Taurine.app website. It can be installed with ease via AltStore, and we will have a tutorial showing you how to do this very shortly.
