Misaka v1.9.7 beta brings support for even more devices, makes app easier to download

The Misaka package manager app that hosts jailed extensions for the MacDirtyCow and kfd exploits present in iOS & iPadOS 15.0-16.1.2 and 16.0-16.5 & 16.6 beta 1 respectively, was updated yet again early Friday morning to version 1.9.7 beta.

Misaka v1.9.7 beta announcement.

Citing the announcement post shared in the official Misaka Discord server, we can gather that version 1.9.7 beta brings the following changes:

a. Added support for:
– iPhone Xr
– iPhone 11 Pro/Pro Max fixed wrong offset cause panic
– iPhone 14 Pro/Pro Max fixed 17ull
– iPhone 14/14 Plus fixed 25ull
– iPhone 11 on 16.5 and 16.6b1 fixed panics

b. Added iPad support for:
– iPad M1 on 2 version 16.4.1 and 16.6b1
– iPad Air 5th Gen on 16.6b1

c. Optimize the app file size. Now you can download it directly on Discord!

As it would seem, the latest update not only improves support for more device and hardware combinations, but also improves the file size of the app so that it can be downloaded directly from Discord instead of from a Mega link.

We should reiterate that Misaka is currently in its beta stages, so users may experience bugs and kernel panics. The developers are working around the clock to address these concerns and improve the user experience.

It’s also important to note that add-ons downloaded from Misaka may not be kfd-compatible yet. Most of those add-ons were created with the MacDirtyCow exploit in mind, and so they might need to be updated to support kfd.

If you’re already a Misaka user, then you’ll be prompted to update the next time you launch the app. Otherwise, you can get started with Misaka and see what kinds of add-ons you could be taking advantage of without a jailbreak by following the steps outlined in our detailed tutorial post.
