Blocking Updates

For support in English, ask for help on the official r/Jailbreak Discord Server.

If you are currently on an unjailbreakable firmware, and have hopes to jailbreak when something comes out for your firmware, you need to block updates. This method will block accidental OTA updates, which ensures that you will be able to jailbreak your phone when the time comes.

We can block updates using an Apple tvOS profile, which will prevent any further iOS updates downloading to your device. This is completely safe and can be removed easily when you want to update.

iOS 12.0 to 12.1.2 users can install a “rootless” jailbreak to use tweaks, however this is only recommended for advanced users.

Installing the tvOS profile

  1. Visit this website on your iOS device
  2. Click this link in your device’s browser
  3. Select “Allow” if prompted
  4. Choose your current device if prompted
  5. Tap “Install”
  6. Confirm by tapping “Install” again
  7. Enter your passcode if you have one
  8. Tap “Install” for a third time
  9. Restart your device when prompted

Your device should no longer receive software updates.

Uninstalling the tvOS Profile

If you want to update your system again, follow the following steps to remove update blocking.

By removing update blocking you may update to a higher firmware and be unable to jailbreak.

  1. Open the Settings application
  2. Go to General -> Profiles
    • Profiles may display as Profiles and Device Management
  3. Select tvOS 12 Beta Software Profile
  4. Tap “Remove Profile”
  5. Enter your passcode if you have one
  6. Confirm by tapping “Remove”

Your device should now be able to update again.
