- Meridian is a new jailbreak for iOS 10 – 10.3.3 released by developer iBSparkes.
- It supports 64-bit devices (iPhone, iPad, iPod touch)
- The jailbreak shipped with Cydia but not Substrate.
Yes, you heard that right, another iOS 10.x jailbreak just got released. This one is also similar to the g0blin jailbreak, one of the most recent releases that we published on here.
The following firmwares are compatible with Meridian:
- iOS 10.x
- iOS 10.1.x
- iOS 10.2.x
- iOS 10.3.x
Since this tool is supporting 64-bit devices, you can expect it to work on:
- iPhone 5s, SE, 6, 6 Plus, 6s, 6s Plus, 7, 7 Plus
- iPad mini 2, 3, and 4
- iPad Air 1 and 2
- iPad Pro 1 and 2
- iPod touch (6th gen)
If you have a 32-bit device, consider using H3lix.
Get Ready to Jailbreak
Here’s how to install Meridian jailbreak on your iOS 10 device:
- Download the latest version of Meridian from here.
- Connect your iPhone or iPad to a computer.
- Open Cydia Impactor, if you don’t have it yet, grab one from this post.
- Drag and drop Meridian-pb.ipa into Cydia Impactor.
- Enter your Apple ID and password.
Once the sideloading process is done, you should see the app’s icon on your home screen.
The app can’t be opened yet. You will have to verify it first. Go to the Settings app > General > Device Management. Look for Meridian’s profile and tap Trust.
You just knocked down the installation process. Now that the Meridian jailbreak is installed on your iOS device, it’s time to launch it.
To run the jailbreak, tap on the “go” button.
Meridian will inject exploits onto your device.
Cydia will be installed shortly after.
It’s not working for me!
If the jailbreak isn’t working for you, please read the following notes:
Exploit may take 10+ tries before it runs. Your device is getting hot and restarting is normal. All offsets for supported devices have already been added. This will run on pre-10.3.x however is not guaranteed to work. Proceed at your own risk. THIS IS WORK IN PROGRESS SOFWARE. NO SUBSTRATE (yet).
Basically, if you ran the Meridian jailbreak and nothing happens, it’s recommended that you try again. As explained by the developer, it could take multiple attempts for the jailbreak to work.
Cydia doesn’t want to open
If the jailbreak is working, but you still can’t open Cydia, run the following command in SSH.
tar -xf /meridian/bins/dpkg.tar -C /
After that, you should be able to launch the app.
