Installation

Jailbreaking

Note Sideloadly doesn't seem to have support for linux (yet), and AltStore won't work on iOS <12.2, so you may have to use a windows/macOS machine for this

Get the .ipa file from Blizzard jailbreak.

Connect your device via usb and install the .ipa using Sideloadly.

Blizzard should now be installed on the device. To trust the developer certificate, go to Settings > General > Device Management.

Launch Blizzard and enable Patch tfp0 (kloader), then hit jailbreak. If the device reboots but jailbreak fails (no Cydia), try again.

Install OpenSSH with Cydia, find your device's ip address by going into Settings > Wi-Fi > [network], then get kloader and scp it in (default root password: alpine)

Additional notes

pongoOS doesn't work on 32-bit devices like this one.

kloader only loads one image into memory. I think ramdisk can either be packed with the linux executable or loaded alongside via multi_kloader.
