Installing Taurine

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

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

The tool is compatible with jailbreaking devices on iOS/iPadOS versions from 14.0 to 14.3.

Due to how semi-untethered jailbreaks work, the app will need to be re-signed once every 7 days. However, you also have the option of installing a permanently signed Taurine app after jailbreaking.

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


If you are on an A12 or newer device, it is highly recommended to follow Installing Taurine (TrollStore) instead.


If you are already jailbroken with another jailbreak (besides Odysseyra1n), make sure to properly remove it before proceeding.


Taurine 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 Taurine .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 Taurine application can now be opened from home screen.

Running Taurine

  1. Reboot your phone
    • This is not necessary but recommended
  2. Open the Taurine application from your home screen immediately afterwards
  3. Tap "Jailbreak"
  4. Reboot your phone when prompted
  5. Open the Taurine application from your home screen immediately after rebooting
  6. Tap "Jailbreak"


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


If you receive the error ERR_Jailbreak, ERR_Already_Jailbroken or ERR_KernRW read the Taurine/Odyssey section on the Troubleshooting page.

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

Installing necessary software

  1. Open the Sileo application
  2. Tap on the "Search" tab
  3. Search for "libhooker"
  4. Tap "Install"
    • This will begin a queue - do not install the queue until we've selected all our programs to install
  5. Search for "PreferenceLoader" and "RocketBootstrap" and add them to the queue by pressing "Install"
  6. Tap the "Queued" bar at the bottom of the page
  7. Tap "Confirm"
  8. Once finished, tap 'Restart SpringBoard'

After installing the necessary software, you can also install taurine-permanent to have a permanently signed Taurine application, which we recommend doing in order to be able to save effort in the long-term.

Installing taurine-permanent

  1. Reopen the Sileo application
  2. Tap on the "Search" tab
  3. Search for "taurine-permanent"
  4. Tap "Install"
  5. Tap the "Queued" bar at the bottom of the page
  6. Tap "Confirm"
  7. Once finished, tap "Done"
