Blizzard Jailbreak is a semi-tethered jailbreak that is currently in development for iOS 15 to iOS 16.0.2, and it will be compatible with checkm8-enabled devices. This jailbreak is being created by the iOS security enthusiast known as GeoSn0w (@FCE365) and will be both free and fully open-source. After completing the jailbreak process with Blizzard Jailbreak, you will have the option to choose between Sileo, Zebra, and Installer 5 as your package manager.
The GeoSn0w semi-tethered jailbreak was initially created for iOS 9 without support for tweak installation. It served as a development platform to learn how to develop an iOS jailbreak. However, Blizzard for iOS 9 later added support for tweaks, making it a complete jailbreak solution.
Blizzard Jailbreak is a semi-tethered jailbreak, meaning that after every device restart, you will need to re-jailbreak to return to the jailbroken state with tweaks installed. It only works on a few iPhone models, including the iPhone 6, iPhone SE, iPhone 8, and iPhone X.
What's even more exciting is that GeoSn0w plans to release the source code for Blizzard Jailbreak on GitHub Repository, allowing others to join the development process. This is significant news for the jailbreak community, as well as security researchers and tweak developers.
Currently, Blizzard Jailbreak is still under development and not available for download on iOS 15 to iOS 16.0.2. However, the release is expected to be soon. It's important to note that Blizzard has not yet mentioned support for iOS versions beyond 16.0.2, including iOS 16.5, iOS 16.4, iOS 16.4.1, iOS 16.3.1, iOS 16.3, iOS 16.2, iOS 16.1.2, iOS 16.1.1, iOS 16.1, and iOS 16.0.3.
Blizzard Jailbreak was initially released as an IPA package for iOS 9, which could be sideloaded using a desktop app like Sideloadly. However, for iOS 15 and iOS 16, GeoSn0w has developed a dedicated app for installation, which is currently only available for macOS.
Blizzard Jailbreak is available as an IPA package that can be sideloaded with an IPA installer on iOS 15 and iOS 16. You can also re-sign the app on your iDevice using the Bullfrog Assistant IPA installer, eliminating the need for a computer to re-jailbreak when necessary.
The Blizzard Jailbreak Installer can install the jailbreak tool on iOS 15.0 up to iOS 16.0.2. To initiate the iOS 15 jailbreak process, connect your checkm8 device to your computer and enter DFU mode, similar to the checkra1n jailbreak process.
Once you click the jailbreak button, the Blizzard Jailbreak app will install on your device, and it will be accessible from your Home Screen. You can use the Blizzard Jailbreak app to re-jailbreak, disable pirated repositories, and remove the jailbreak from your system. You can also switch between supported package managers by tapping on jailbreak.
An installer for Linux users will likely be released as well. This method will enable the installation of Blizzard Jailbreak from a Windows machine via a Linux USB.

Currently, the jailbreak only works on A12 – A15 devices with iOS 15 – iOS 15.1.1 installed. This is a rootless jailbreak with tweak injection support. Previously, Palera1n jailbreak was the only solution available to jailbreak devices running iOS 15 up to iOS 15.7.5, but it only supported older devices with the A7-A11 chip. With the introduction of the XinaA15 jailbreak, users with devices newer than the iPhone X, equipped with the A12 or newer chip, can also jailbreak their iOS 15 devices (iOS 15.0 – iOS 15.1.1).
Ra1nCloud is a new jailbreak tool for developers, allowing jailbreaking and SSH server installation on A12+ devices running iOS 15 to iOS 15.4.1. It's built on Fugu15 by Linus Hanze, but it doesn't support tweak injection for end-users seeking advanced device customization. Some developers are attempting to add tweak injection to Fugu15 Jailbreak, but success is uncertain. Ra1nCloud uses opa334's Fugu15 fork with PoC tweak injection code, and the developer, iArchive, has yet to introduce significant features unique to the tool.
