How many apps did not run on your iPhone because you decided to jailbreak the iOS system? vnodebypass is a free tweak to bypass jailbreak detection allowing to run banking and other apps not opening on jailbroken devices.

Add vnodebypass Repo to your package manager.

What is vnodebypass?

vnodebypass tweak is a jailbreak detection bypass tool that works with iOS 12, and iOS / iPadOS 14.2. It was designed to support unc0ver jailbreak and hide jailbreak files for bypass detection. This is a great solution to hide apps from detecting a jailbroken environment.

vnode tweak is using hidePath of jelbrekLib and maphys (0x7ff) discovered by akusio. After installation, you can access this bypass from the Home Screen icon. There is only an option to enable or disable the bypass systemwide. The tweak supports the latest iOS 14.

Once installed, there are no other options to configure. If for some reason after disabling the tweak other jailbreak apps will stop working try to respring or re-jailbreak your iPhone or iPad. As mentioned already, vnodebypass works with unc0ver but it can also run on Taurine jailbreak.

vnodebypass tweak is the only jailbreak detection bypass tool that allows jailbreak users to run the iPogo Pokemon GO app. When the stock tweak will not work for you, there is a modified vnodebypass version with Pokemon Go Launcher available through the official iPogo Repo.

I would recommend you try other tweaks to hide jailbreak detection from apps when this one will not work on your iPhone or iPad. KernBypass is the only jailbreak detection bypass working on the kernel level. Another popular tweak to bypass jailbreak detection is the A-Bypass tweak.

@ichitaso forked the vnodebypass project from XsF1re. Be aware, that this is an experimental tool to hide jailbreak files for bypass detection. All tweaks don't come with any guarantee to work. To be sure you must test if any mentioned tweak will work for you.

vnodebypass tweak is an open-source dynamic library for iOS 12, iOS 13, and iOS 14 released by the developer through GitHub Repository. You can build the project from source code on any platform using theos, the cross-platform build system for creating iOS apps.

The latest version of the tweak is 0.2.9. As long as you have standard libraries for Xcode projects (version 7) you are good to go. Source Code is under GNU General Public License.

Command Line

vnodebypass can be also executed from the terminal directly on your device or through an SSH connection. Hide jailbreak files using VNODE that provides an internal representation of a file or directory or defines an interface to a file with a command line.
