How to Jailbreak iOS 16. X on iPhone or iPad Using Dopamine

IOS developer Lars Fröder (@opa334dev) has officially released Dopamine v2. This permanently signable, semi-untethered jailbreak tool works on A9-A16 and M1-M2 devices running iOS & iPadOS 15.0-16.6.1*. Follow the steps in this article to install Dopamine v2 on a compatible device.

The Introduction of Dopamine v2

With TrollStore, Dopamine v2 can be perma-signed, so you will not have to sign it every seven days as you would with jailbreaks installed through AltStore or Sideloadly. Despite the fact that semi-untethered jailbreaks require re-jailbreaking after every reboot, perma-signing involves no interaction with a computer after installation.

Dopamine is a rootless jailbreak, so you can only use rootless-compatible packages with it. Several developers have already made packages rootless-compatible or are working on them now.

Finally, Dopamine installs Sileo or Zebra as the default package manager. During installation, you will get to pick which one you wish to use.
