Installing doubleh3lix

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


This guide is mainly designed to be a fallback should you, for any reason, run into issues doing TotallyNotSpyware. In most cases, TotallyNotSpyware is generally easier and better than manually installing doubleh3lix.

doubleh3lix is capable of jailbreaking every A7 to A9(X) device on firmware versions 10.0 to 10.3.3.

Note that the doubleh3lix jailbreak is not “persistent” (meaning it does not remain installed after a reboot). You will need to re-run the exploit after every reboot. You will be instructed on how to do this.

Due to how custom applications are installed to the device, in most cases you will need to reinstall the doubleh3lix jailbreak application to your device every 7 days from your computer.

We will use the Sideloadly tool to install the doubleh3lix jailbreak application to your iOS device for use in the next step.

Installing the application

  1. Open Sideloadly
  2. Plug your iOS device into your computer
    • Make sure your computer is trusted and allowed to view the contents of your device
  3. Drag and drop the doubleh3lix .ipa file into Sideloadly
  4. Enter in your Apple ID
  5. Enter in your password
    • Sideloadly must make a request to it's servers in order to work with free developer accounts. If you are not OK with this, you may use an alternate Apple ID.

The app will now install to your iOS device.

Trusting the application

  1. Go to Settings -> General -> Device Management -> <Your Apple ID>
    • Depending on your usage, Device Management may be labeled Profiles and Device Management
  2. Tap Trust "<Your Apple ID>"

The doubleh3lix application can now be opened from home screen.

Running doubleh3lix

  1. Open the doubleh3lix application from your home screen
  2. Tap "Jailbreak"


If your device crashes or restarts unexpectedly and the jailbreak isn't installed, simply try running the exploit again until it does work.

You should now be jailbroken with Cydia installed on your home screen. You can use Cydia to install tweaks, themes and more.
