Installing Socket

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

Socket is capable of jailbreaking every 32-bit iOS device on firmware version 10.0.1 up to 10.3.4.

Note that the Socket 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 Socket jailbreak application to your device every 7 days from your computer.

We will use Sideloadly to install the application to your device.


Socket is currently signed at for easy installation without a computer.

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 Socket .ipa file into Sideloadly
  4. Enter in your Apple ID
  5. Enter in your password
    • Sideloadly must make a request to its 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 Socket application can now be opened from home screen.

Running Socket

  1. Open the Socket 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 Zebra installed on your home screen. You can use Zebra to install tweaks, themes and more.
