Installing XinaA15

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

XinaA15 is a semi-untethered jailbreak, meaning it requires an app to re-apply the exploit after a reboot.

WARNING

XinaA15 is currently a beta, as a result, you may run into more issues than you would otherwise expect.

Additionally, as this jailbreak is fundamentally different from how most other jailbreaks have been in the past, you may run into issues with tweak compatibility.

WARNING

XinaA15 only supports A12 and newer devices on iOS 15.0 to 15.1.1

Downloads

Download both of the following .ipa files onto your iOS device:

Installing TrollHelper

  1. Open Safari
  2. Go to https://api.jailbreaks.app/troll64eOpen in new window
  3. Tap Install

An app named GTA Car Tracker will now install to your iOS device, this app is TrollHelper, however.

Installing TrollStore

  1. Open the GTA Car Tracker app
  2. Tap Install TrollStore

The TrollStore application will now install to your iOS device.

Preparing TrollStore

In order to be able to sideload XinaA15, a couple more steps need to be done.

Installing Persistence Helper

  1. Reopen the GTA Car Tracker app
  2. Press Register Persistence Helper

The GTA Car Tracker app can now be used as the Persistence Helper

TIP

The reason the persistence helper is highly important is that, whenever iOS rebuilds its icon cache, all apps installed by TrollStore (as well as TrollStore itself) will either disappear or no longer open.

To workaround this, the Persistence Helper (which will still open even after this happens) can refresh app registrations so that the apps will reappear and open again.

Installing ldid

  1. Open the TrollStore app
  2. Tap Settings
  3. Tap Install ldid

Installing XinaA15

  1. Go back to the Apps tab
  2. Press the + on the top right
  3. Go to where you saved the XinaA15 .ipa file
  4. Tap on the XinaA15 .ipa file
  5. Tap Install

The XinaA15 app will now be installed onto your device.

Running XinaA15

  1. Reboot your phone
    • This is not necessary but recommended
  2. Open the XinaA15 application from your home screen immediately afterwards
  3. Tap "Jailbreak", then "openJailbreak", your device will then reboot after a period of time
  4. Open the XinaA15 application from your home screen immediately after rebooting
  5. Tap "Jailbreak", then "openJailbreak"

TIP

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.

While you are now jailbroken at this point, as there isn't a package manager included with XinaA15, we'll manually install the xina-beta-5 version of Sileo.

Installing Sileo

  1. Go back to the Apps tab
  2. Press the + on the top right
  3. Go to where you saved the Sileo .ipa file
  4. Tap on the Sileo .ipa file
  5. Tap Install

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