Hacker group The Odyssey Team has unveiled an upcoming jailbreak tool named “Cheyote” that will operate with devices running iOS 15 for the first time.
The new iOS 15 Jailbreak tool for iPhones and iPads was just announced as being on the way. The Odyssey team is working very hard to make the new jailbreak foolproof, as you may be startled to learn. Cheyote is the codename for the jailbreak that does not require root access on your iPhone.
Developers of the Jailbreak have already started revealing details so let’s jump right into it.
Cheyote Facts and Information
The Odyssey Team Discord Server has been updated with the newest information on the forthcoming Cheyote Jailbreak. The patch notes detail the functionality introduced to the jailbreak along with an updated to-do list.
Based on the preceding information and disclosures supplied by the team, it’s safe to claim that CoolStar has managed to run the Cheyote Recovery interface. This means all choices, including Safe Mode, Startup Repair, regular Boot, and Telnet/SSH, can work properly.

It is a breach of the End User License Agreement that each and every iOS user agrees to when jailbreaking their device to remove restrictions and modify the software and side-load apps. Although it is not against the law in the United States, the Digital Millennium Copyright Act exempts jailbreaking from voiding a device’s warranty.
Apple’s cat-and-mouse game with the jailbreaking community has been ongoing for almost a decade, with breakthroughs in iOS security and added customization incorporated into Apple’s software having lowered interest in jailbreaking in recent years.
CoolStar alerted customers that Safe Mode is still active on iOS 15 and offered a screenshot to establish its legitimacy. Additional accomplishments in the Cheyote Jailbreak project were highlighted in an up-to-date task list. Here’s a rundown of the revised details below:
- Breaking out of the sandbox
- Getting root
- Getting read/write access to the filesystem (except rootFS)
- Breaking AMF/codesign
- Running shell commands (some bugs remain)
- Getting OpenSSH running
- Getting legacy Odyssey launched injection working
- Adding USB Ethernet debug support
- Getting Userspace reboot working
- Getting Cheyote recovery working
- Getting system services started properly after an Underspace reboot (some bugs remain)
- Putting a bounty out of an iOS 15 jailbreak tweak to install for testing
- Running tweak in Springboard

Even if the above-mentioned tasks have been completed, the jailbreak team still needs to hammer out a few details.
- Fixing dyld hook
- Removing the need for a manual reboot by fixing the Userspace reboot problem.
- Assuring that injection is functional within App Store applications.
Fans of the Cheyote Jailbreak are encouraged by the most recent to-do list, which indicates that the jailbreak is nearing completion and will be released in the near future. As of yet, no firm date has been set for the release of Cheyote, but don’t fret. Appuals will continue to be updated when new information becomes available.
