Installing Def1nit3lyN0tAJa1lbr3akTool

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

Def1nit3lyN0tAJa1lbr3akTool is a semi-untethered jailbreak, meaning it requires an app to re-apply the exploit after a reboot.

The tool is capable of jailbreaking A11 and earlier devices on iOS/iPadOS versions 16.0 to 16.6.1.

We will first use Sideloadly to sideload either TrollInstallerMDC or TrollStar, then use either TrollInstallerMDC or TrollStar to then install TrollStore, and then install Def1nit3lyN0tAJa1lbr3akTool from there.

WARNING

if you are currently using rootful palera1n, you need to first Remove rootful palera1n before proceeding.

If you are using rootless palera1n, while you won't have to do anything, note that you will lose your existing jailbreak setup by following these steps.
