iOSbinpack 9.3.3

So I noticed that with the latest version of Pangu on 9.3.x once I copy the iOSbinpack(64/5S) to the device and perform a restart I am unable to re-jailbreak.

And I therefore have to do a complete restore.

Thoughts?

From what I see, you're unable to respring - the jailbreak actually does work, and Cydia works as well. Respringing as a workaround can be had if you install MTerminal and do killall -9 SpringBoard.

But I'll look into that; Apparently, Pangu rely on a Cydia installed binary which I replace with a newer, albeit incompatible command line version.

I also noticed that the binpack replaces 4 stock iOS binaries:

/bin/df
/bin/ps
/usr/bin/vm_stat
/usr/sbin/nvram

Is that a good idea, considering they're signed by AAPL (and, at least for iOS 9.3.3, newer than the available source)?

Ok kewl. So I actually had a jailbreak on 9.0.x and after installing the latest iosbinpack and rebooting the device just got stuck on the logo. Lost that jb and hence had to update to the latest one. Weird?

Siguza: Wasn't aware that Apple had these binaries now. I'll remove them from the binpack

Darknight: That sounds like a glitch. I've installed the binpack myself on dozens of devices (literally, in the 50+) and had no issues restarting save for that respringing issue.

Yeah I am guessing so as well...

Just a follow up that even after restarting SpringBoard as described, you won't be able to ssh into the device after.

Same experience with iOSbinpack64 on ipod touch this time running 9.1. Device does not boot.

Ah, again, I doubt it's the binpack's problem. Considering I am using this and have personally tested this on *all* my devices, and we are talking about the full gamut of iOS 7 through 10! When you say "device does not boot", I need to know how/why it does not? Are you merely stuck at an Apple logo but behind the scenes you have SSH?

This is very odd, since I know the binpack is being used by tons of people, and has infact made it into the iOS 9.1 JB by Pangu for the TV.

As for starting sshd: /usr/sbin/sshd at the command line (as root, full path) will do it. Though FYI, the binpack doesn't include sshd - it uses dropbear. Anyway, either would start.

Hey J,
So the steps I follow are:
i. Jailbreak device (tested on 9.1(ipod touch 6G) and 9.3.3(5S))
ii. Download iosbinpack from http://newosxbook.com/tools/iosbinpack64.tgz
iii. Install apple file conduit
iv. Stashing tweak 9.2 - 9.3.3(5S)
v. Copy iosbinpack64.tgz to / and untar

At that point everything works fine.

Issues pop up after reboot. In the case of 9.1the device gets stuck on the Apple logo with no access (SSH etc). And for 9.3.3, after rebooting and re-jailbreak it doesn't re-spring or have ssh access. I tried the recommended steps i.e. killall -9 and launching sshd but no luck. At that point you can longer access the device via ssh or even via iFunBox(Apple file conduit 2). And trying to install any additional packages through Cydia results in multiple errors. So even though it says it has been successfully jailbroken there isnt much you can do.

I performed the same steps with 9.0.2 using the same url above and the device gets stuck on the apple logo with no access. Installing any other tweaks are fine but once I copy the iosbinpack to the device and restart things get broken.

I can reliably reproduce this on 9.1 and 9.3.3...
