Old Google Chrome extensions will stop working. At the beginning of 2023, the browser completely switches to the Manifest V3 platform

Published

Google has decided to improve the situation with extensions for the Chrome browser. To do this, the company previously introduced Manifest V3 – a new platform for extensions.

As it became known, the existing extensions created on the Manifest V2 platform will work for a little over a year. On January 17, 2022, developers will no longer be able to post new Manifest V2 extensions to the Chrome app store, and in January 2023, such extensions will simply stop working. That is, the year of expansion on the Manifest V2 and V3 platforms will exist in parallel. At the same time, old extensions will not work, even if you install them from a third-party source.

One of the problems that developers initially faced with the appearance of Manifest V3 was the new Declarative Net Request API. The bottom line is that almost all ad blockers rely on the Web Request API and cannot work with the new set of tools. However, Google has already listened to the public with a number of changes.

Hacker and security specialist Linus Henze has released the Fugu14 untethered jailbreak tool for iPhones running up to iOS 14.5.1.

Fugu14 supports iPhone smartphones with Apple A12, Apple A13 and Apple A14 SoCs running iOS 14.3 – 14.5.1. The peculiarity of untethered jailbreak is that when you restart your phone, the jailbroken state is not lost. You don’t have to connect your device to your computer after every smartphone reboot.

Fugu14 support has already been added in unc0ver v7.0.0. Soon, the tool will be integrated into the Taurine jailbreak. However, the author of the tool himself warns that for now Fugu14 is intended for experienced developers, and not for ordinary users. To use Fugu14, you need to connect your Mac to your smartphone, Xcode, ideviceinstaller and other tools must be installed on the computer.

iOS 14.4 and iOS 14.5 were released quite a long time ago, so there are not so many devices running on these versions of the software. So far, Linus Henze is not talking about jailbreaking iOS 15.

Although recently the hacker group Pangu Lab performed the world’s first remote jailbreak on the iPhone 13 Pro and gained full access to the phone.
