Installing meowbrek2 (palera1n)

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

meowbrek2 is a semi-untethered jailbreak, meaning it requires an app to re-apply the exploit after a reboot.

This tool is capable of jailbreaking A11 and earlier devices on iOS/iPadOS versions 15.0 to 15.8.1.


if you are currently using rootful palera1n, or setup rootless palera1n before April 27th, 2023, you need to first Remove rootful palera1n before proceeding.

If you are using rootless palera1n, and set it up after April 27th, 2023, this is not an issue, and you can continue with these steps.
