Install Cowabunga IPA for iOS 16 - iOS 17

What is Cowabunga IPA?

Cowabunga IPA is an app that lets you alter a few key system settings of your iPhone without having to jailbreak your device. Just like the DynamicCow IPA, the Cowabunga app utilizes the MacDirtyCow exploit, hence the app only works on iOS 14 – iOS 15.7.1 and iOS 16 – iOS 16.7 beta.

However, the version that supports iOS 16.2 - iOS 16.7 (beta) is the Lite version of Cowabunga tweak.

Since the MAcDirtyCow exploit was fixed in iOS 15.7.2 and iOS 16.2 +, you are unable to use the Cowabunga IPA on them.

Cowabunga Lite supports iOS 17

According to LeminLimez's Twitter message, it was officially informed that Cowabunga Lite now supports iOS 17. Also, he claims that the closest reason why the Cowabunga Lite app may crash or be prone to bugs is not because of the app's issue, but due to the issues of the iOS 17 beta version.

Further, he emphasized in his Twitter message that the status bar of the Cowabunga app crashes as the feature is disabled on untested versions.
