Go to Settings > General > About to find out your device's model. Your device model can be found to the right of Model Name.
From the palera1n github page:
- On A10 and A11, you must disable your passcode while in the jailbroken state.
- On iOS 16 A10+, if you EVER enabled a passcode on iOS/iPadOS 16, you have to reset your device through the settings app and or restore with a computer.
- On A10, this can be fixed in the future by implementing blackbird.
- On A11, we don't have a SEP exploit yet.
Software versions iOS/iPadOS 15.0 - 16.3 beta are supported.
For iOS 16, only A11 devices are compatible with iOS 16, so that's the iPhone 8, 8 Plus, and X.
If you wanna Jailbreak iOS 12.0 - 14, please use the checkra1n Jailbreak.
Instead of running Semi-Tethered Jailbreak or Tethered Jailbreak, run Remove Semi-Tethered Jailbreak or Remove Tethered-Jailbreak. In palera1n GUI v1.0 and v1.1, Remove Semi-Tethered is broken. So use Remove Tethered Jailbreak.
IF YOU JAILBREAK WITH PALERA1N GUI V1.0, YOU MUST USE PALERA1N GUI V1.0 TO REMOVE THE JAILBREAK, THEN YOU CAN UPDATE TO PALERA1N GUI V1.1, AND THEN RE-JAILBREAK YOUR DEVICE.
YOU CANNOT REVERT/ REMOVE A JAILBREAK WITH A VERSION YOU NEVER STARTED THE JAILBREAK WITH. THIS IS BECAUSE WHEN YOU RUN THE JAILBREAK, SPECIAL FILES ARE MADE FOR YOUR DEVICE AND THOSE ARE STORED IN THE FOLDER WHERE YOU WERE FIRST DOING THE JAILBREAK.
palera1n GUI requires macOS Catalina or higher to run, Linux support is coming soon. And Windows is never getting support. macOS versions below Catalina should theoretically work, but the developer tested his palera1n GUI app only on macOS Catalina, Big Sur, and Monterey.
Go to this website -> ios.cfw.guide/types-of-jailbreak/#semi-tethered-jailbreaks, it explains it pretty well, & simple. Lol
Please use a USB A to lighting cable. If you have a Mac with only USB C ports, please get a USB C hub (like this one -> CLICK ME) with USB A ports.
Open terminal, then run: pip3 install pillow
Cancel the jailbreak process, then re-attempt the jailbreak, if restarting it doesn't fix it, reboot your device and computer, then retry. If that doesn't fix it, restore rootfs then attempt again. It should work, eventually.
I (@iTechExpert21) ran into this error, several times recently. I still do run into this error sometimes, but other times, the jailbreaking process usually just works without any issues. All I do is just keep trying to jailbreak again, try rebooting both iPhone and Mac, and try using a different Wi-Fi network. It eventually will work.
Open a new terminal window, then type: sudo xattr -rd com.apple.quarantine *drag palera1n GUI folder here* This command fixes any potential issues loading files that were downloaded from the internet.
Make sure terminal has full disk access, as well as sshd-ketgen-wrapper. This is only for running things like ideviceinfo, idevicepair pair and more. Open System Preferences -> Security & Privacy -> Privacy, then press the lock button to make changes, enter your password, then once unlocked, find full disk access, then make sure terminal and sshd-ketgen-wrapper have full disk access.
If your device doesn't want to boot after the second jailbreak.
Launch terminal, then open the palera1n folder in the palera1n GUI folder, then type in terminal: python3 (drag palera1n.sh file) -clean, then hit enter.
Open another terminal window, then run "git clone https://github.com/verygenericname/SSHRD_Script --recursive && cd SSHRD_Script", then type "python3 sshrd.sh -clean"
When running the above commands in terminal, run it w/o quotes.
Thanks to @jonwitdnhnd for mentioning the above.
If the above doesn't work for some reason, try the method below.
Open the palera1n folder (or palera1n folder inside the palera1n GUI folder, if jailbroken using the GUI), then open a terminal window, and type w/o quotes/parentheses "rm -rf (drag blobs folder); rm -rf (drag the folder boot-iPhone, iPad, or iPod, depending on your device); rm -rf (drag the sshramdisk folder, inside the ramdisk folder)". If the command looks like the command below (but w/ where you put the folders), hit enter.
In the end, the command should look like this (but w/ where you put the folders) -> "rm -rf /Volumes/WD\ External\ SSD/Other/palera1n\ Jailbreak/GUI/Palera1n\ GUI-v1.2.4/palera1n/blobs; rm -rf /Volumes/WD\ External\ SSD/Other/palera1n\ Jailbreak/GUI/Palera1n\ GUI-v1.2.4/palera1n/boot-iPhone8\,4; rm -rf /Volumes/WD\ External\ SSD/Other/palera1n\ Jailbreak/GUI/Palera1n\ GUI-v1.2.4/palera1n/ramdisk/sshramdisk"
