Pwning Using Another iOS Device

  • You can use another iOS device that is jailbroken to put your target device in pwned DFU mode.
  • This can be very useful if you do not have a Mac but have a spare iOS device on hand.
  • This method can be used for iPhone 4, A6(X), and A7 devices.


  • In the picture, the iPhone 6 is the host device where ipwnder_lite is installed and USB lightning to camera adapter is plugged in. It is jailbroken with Chimera/Odysseyra1n.
  • The iPad mini 2 is the target device I will be pwning with checkm8, plugged into the iPhone 6 via the USB adapter with a lightning cable. I have also placed it in DFU mode.
  1. On your host device, install ipwnder_lite, and follow the setup in the picture above
  2. Install and open NewTerm or MTerminal on the host device
  3. Run the command ipwnder_lite -p
  4. If successful, this will put the target device in pwned DFU mode with checkm8
  • Note that I have only gotten ipwnder_lite to work on Procursus jailbreaks (tested on Chimera, Odysseyra1n, and Taurine)
