Dopamine-roothide is a Dopamine fork that aims to evade jailbreak detections by implementing the RootHide scheme, which randomizes paths that jailbreak software uses. Other measures are also taken to evade jailbreak detection. It provides a manager app to hide jailbreak from selected apps as well as removing junk files from /var.

Changes compared to Dopamine

  • Removes fakelib
  • Removes bind mount
  • Removes system-wide dyld file patch (uses process-based patch instead)
  • Blacklists certain URL schemes so they can't be detected
  • Unsandboxes systemhook.dylib before it is injected
  • Randomizes systemhook.dylib file name
  • Randomizes /var/jb fixed path
  • Moves bootstrap from /private/preboot to /var
  • More rootless redirections
  • Bootstrap uses libroothide middle layer to convert path
  • Uses iphoneos-arm64e deb arch
  • Adds a blacklist selector app
  • Adds an app to remove junk files from /var

Measures to evade jailbreak detection

  • All bootstrap and jailbreak files are deployed to randomized paths. Data files generated by bootstrap tools are stored randomized paths as the libroothide middle layer randomizes them.
  • Does not use /private/preboot for holding the rootless prefix, as using preboot causes detectable changes even if all paths are randomized
  • No extra filesystems are mounted
  • Processes of blacklisted apps are not modified at all
  • Sets CFFIXED_USER_HOME to random path, as some system frameworks save files relative to this path
  • Redirect jailbreak apps/tweaks use of /var/mobile/Library/Preferences, /var/mobile/Library/SplashBoard/Snapshots and /var/mobile/Library/Application Support/Containers/<bundle id>/Documents/Inbox to random paths
  • uicache registers CFFIXED_USER_HOME, TMPDIR and HOME as directories under random paths
  • Certain common jailbreak URL schemes are hidden from blacklisted apps
  • Aforementioned jailbreak environment variables are not set in blacklisted apps
  • A /var-files cleaner app, to remove files that may trip jailbreak detection from /var (potentially made when using other jailbreaks)
