Steven De Franco, the nickname is iH8sn0w is a necessary character in the jailbreak community. He owns very famous & valuable jailbreak tools too. iH8sn0w has many experiences about the jailbreak and creating jb tools too. He involves into the jb with many ways since 2009.
Successfully demonstrate iOS 10 jailbreak recently using the first beta version of it. He used iPhone 5C to complete it. So with this demonstrate iH8sn0w hinted to other jailbreak developers, still all the latest Apple iOS versions and all the latest iOS devices are jailbreakable. But, iH8sn0w didn't use other iOS 10 beta versions to test JB availability, even Apple releases eight beta versions.
It is good news that iH8sn0w used iPhone 5 for iOS 10 demonstrate. Course, latest JB tools never supports for 32-bit devices. Latest PP/Pangu Jailbreak tool also doesn’t support for the iPhone 5. If the iH8sn0w success with this device, it is no doubt that it will have iOS 10 jailbreak support for 32-bit devices too.
Every time, iH8sn0w proved the possibility of jailbreak iOS versions, we definitely have Cydia. So, it will apply for iOS 10 jb too. Here is the latest confirmed video of iH8sn0w iOS 10/10.0.1 Jailbreaks.
Every time jailbreak tool’s developers in trouble finding a method to release JB tool, iH8sn0w helps them directly or indirectly. It has many examples to prove it. Here is one by one.
When Apple killed iOS 9 and iOS 8.1 jailbreak, he involves directly to find JB method. For the first time, Apple introduced Rootless Jailbreak to prevent the jailbreak as a security update from iOS 9 version. At that point, all the jailbreak tool developers failed to find method, except the iH8sn0w. He demonstrated it on 2015-09-10 & released a video too. Then Pangu and TaiG got his method to find their own jailbreak tool. Pangu released iOS 9 Jailbreak. TaiG released iOS 8.1.1 Jailbreak. So, because of the iH8sn0w, we had these two jailbreaks.
Here is the iH8sn0w iOS 8.1.1 jailbreak demonstrate video.
Pangu team released iOS 9.2 to iOS 9.3.3 PP/Pangu JB tool. Method got from iH8sn0w’s iOS 9 demonstration. But it is only supported for 64 devices. So far, it is released Chinese tool version only. Pangu noted that next time English version released, it would be added 32-bit devices too. But, all the 16-bit devices won’t support future JB. Most probably it will be rejected 16-bit devices for iOS 10 jailbreak too. Jailbreak is alive. But day by day old devices will be dismissed.
A lot of users are waiting for iOS 10 jailbreak. In this situation iOS 9.3.3 jailbreak is very important one. Course, Pangu will apply this jailbreak for iOS 10 too, when it releases for the public. iOS 9.3.3 and iOS 10 has same security features. And also iH8sn0w has jailbroken iOS 10 beta version too. So, all of these say that iOS 10 jailbreak will have for 32 and 64-bit devices as untethered method.
Posixspwn is the most successful jailbreak tool of the iH8sn0w. It is working iOS 6.1.6 to iOS 6.1.3 versions as untethered jailbreak tool. The latest version is 1.0.8, and it is working both Windows and Mac operation systems. But, it has no any P0sixspwn tool update recently. It has little doubt, which this tool version will release for the iOS 10 jailbreak.
Sn0wbreeze was the another successful jailbreak tool released by iH8sn0w. It is working iOS 6.1.3 to iOS 3.1.3 versions as untethered jailbreak tool. Currently, 2.9.14 is the latest version and beyond iOS 6.1.3 release, iH8sn0w was failed to update.
iFaith is not a jailbreak tool, and it is an open source. It is allowed to you downgrade current iOS version to older iOS version. When you want to Downgrade to the previous version, you need SHSH blobs and iFaith allows to you save SHSH blobs. iFaith tool is only working within the Windows operation system. Here is the video, which iH8sn0w released via his YouTube account.
When compare iH8sn0w with other developers, iH8sn0w is leading character in the JB field. Course, he has released jailbreak tools, published proved jailbreak videos too. The main thing is he guides other jailbreak tool’s developers to release JB tools.
Recently it has no any new tool release or new tool updates of his previous tools. He just finds jb methods and releases videos only. Actually, iH8sn0w motivate other’s jailbreak teams, when they are in trouble. So, he is an important person to this field.
