Virtual Jailbreak Vs. Fully-functional Jailbreak

  • As the heading itself suggests, Virtual Jailbreak is not a fully functional jailbreak. This means that Virtual Jailbreak doesn't touch or amend the root files of your device, unlike a fully functional jailbreak tool.
  • Virtual Jailbreak enables you to install Lite/ Demo package managers such as Cydia Demo and Sileo Lite. These Lite package managers are also limited in functionality, so you can only install a limited array of tweaks.
  • Virtual jailbreak supports almost all the latest iOS/ iPadOS models and the latest devices, whereas fully-functional jailbreak supports only a range of iOS/ iPadOS on specific devices.
  • Fully-functional jailbreak does void the Apple warranty, but virtual jailbreak does not.
  • Virtual jailbreak tools don't require you to put your device on DFU mode or to save SHSH blobs like a legit jailbreak.
  • The virtual jailbreak works 100% online without any involvement of a PC, whereas most fully-functional jailbreak tools require a PC's involvement in the process.
