Dopamine Jailbreak

Lars Fröder has announced the rebranding of Fugu15 Max to Dopamine. This newly developed jailbreak is specifically designed to provide A12+ devices running Dopamine with the ability to utilize tweak injection (ElleKit) features on iOS 15. Dopamine Jailbreak IPA is now officially released, and its source code is publicly available.

What is Dopamine Jailbreak?

Dopamine Jailbreak, formerly known as Fugu15 Max, enables users to jailbreak all modern iOS devices running iOS 15 – iOS 15.4.1, including A12+ models. The jailbreak's creator, Lars Fröder, has expanded upon the original Fugu15 proof of concept that was first released by Linus Henze. It uses Sileo as the default package manager and ElleKit as tweak injection library.

Dopamine Jailbreak sets itself apart from its predecessor, by offering enhanced functionality through the addition of tweak injection support and improved exploit performance. While this feature is still under development and not yet functional, Dopamine Jailbreak has been designed with end-users in mind, providing them with the ability to utilize Sileo or Zebra, and install rootless tweaks on iOS 15 that are specifically tailored for Dopamine jailbreak.

Dopamine Jailbreak was initially restricted to iOS 15.4 – iOS 15.4.1 due to a Wi-Fi bug panic triggered by userspace rebooting on earlier versions, even when Wi-Fi is disabled. This bug is present in the Fugu15 jailbreak, with versions 15.0 through 15.3.1 displaying similar device freezing and restart issues. However, with a recent fix, Dopamine Jailbreak now supports iOS 15.0 – iOS 15.4.1, allowing users to take full advantage of the jailbreak's capabilities.

Although Dopamine Jailbreak has made significant strides in improving its functionality, it still requires Wi-Fi to be disabled during the jailbreaking process on iOS 15.0 – iOS 15.3.1. Nevertheless, a new commit has been introduced, which allows Wi-Fi to be re-enabled after the jailbreak is complete. As Dopamine Jailbreak continues to mature, this feature will be automatically handled by the app, thanks to arbitrary entitlements.

While official information about Dopamine Jailbreak is currently limited, the project's GitHub page suggests that Lars started modifying the Fugu15 source code in February. However, additional details are scarce. Other developers may contribute to accelerate the development process or even discover methods to enable the jailbreak to provide even more features. As it stands, Dopamine is compatible with iOS 15.0 – iOS 15.4.1.

Dopamine Jailbreak has recently undergone significant enhancements and upgrades, offering users a host of new features. One of the most notable updates is the new GUI, which can greatly improve the functionality of the jailbreak. Additionally, the latest release has resolved several issues that were impacting users, such as AutoFill not working properly after respring, and certain device combinations not being supported.

The jailbreak's bootstrap has also been updated to the latest version, and the system-wide hook has been improved to always respect safe mode, ensuring that the library is kept out of DriverKit and BlastDoor processes. Additionally, the latest version of the Dopamine Jailbreak prevents tweak injection into processes that could use fork, further bolstering the jailbreak's stability.

Dopamine Jailbreak also comes equipped with default rootless repos, including Chariz, Havoc, Ellekit.space, Procurus, zp's rootless repo, and BigBoss. In addition, the jailbreak has addressed memory leaks in jailbreakd and now properly fixes SSH as mobile. Another notable addition is the jbupdate functionality, allowing for easy updating of the jailbreak with just a few clicks.

The launchd hook has also been updated, with fallback ElleKit properly implemented using rpaths. Additionally, more XinaA15 leftover files have been deleted on jailbreak to make a clean installation. Lastly, the Beta 5 release includes numerous stability improvements.

Dopamine jailbreak offers tweak injection capabilities via the ElleKit tweak hooking library. The app itself will allow users to select the preferred package manager, restart springboard, and reboot Userspace. From jailbreak settings users can enable tweak injection, iDownlaod, and verbose logs. Moreover, there is option to temporary hide the jailbreak and remove the jailbreak.

Note: When installing Dopamine app and executing the jailbreak it will remove all repositories and tweaks installed on your device using Fugu15 Max Beta.
