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 all devices on iOS/iPadOS versions 14.0 to 14.8.1.


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


Reliable M1 iPad Pro support for 1TB and 2TB M1 iPad Pro's requires an unofficial build of Taurine. If you are not comfortable with using an unofficial build, you can attempt to use the official release, but it will be extraordinarily unlikely that it ever succeeds.

We will first install TrollStore using one of two methods (depending on your device), and then install Taurine through TrollStore.
