Supervised mode is an important thing for not only prospective jailbreakers, but for folks who want to upgrade to unsigned firmware using the DelayOTA method to take advantage of kernel exploits that make add-ons possible, with two recent examples being MacDirtyCow for iOS & iPadOS 15.0-16.1.2 and kfd for iOS & iPadOS 16.0-16.6 beta 1.
Getting a device to become supervised takes some effort using the traditional means that we’ve shown you in previous tutorials, but with the help of a new MacDirtyCow & kfd add-on dubbed Superevise by iOS developer uz.ra, this is now something that can be achieved with a simple toggle switch.
Once installed, users can access the Superevise preference pane by using a 3D Touch or Haptic Touch gesture on the add-on from the Misaka package manager app. The preference pane, shown below, includes two useful options relating to supervised mode:
As you can see, there’s a toggle switch to turn Supervised mode on or off on demand, as well as a toggle switch to hide the unsightly ‘This Device is Supervised’ text that normally appears on supervised devices.
While your device is supervised, you open yourself up to being able to use the DelayOTA software update method, which makes it possible to update to unsigned firmware up to 90 days after the firmware becomes unsigned. It also opens you up to certain device customizations.
Superevise doesn’t require a jailbreak to be used, but it can only be installed on devices susceptible to either the MacDirtyCow or kfd exploits. Those interested in giving Superevise a try can acquire it from the Misaka package manager app.
If you’re not already taking advantage of Misaka, then you can download and install it using one of the tutorials below:
