Getting iOS 14 Emojis On Older Jailbroken Versions

If you've come from /r/jailbreak, please reconsider your choice of jailbreaking community.

See my twitter thread and kritanta's twitter thread.

I will also not be providing support on /r/jailbreak.

So, we've all seen the new, fancy iOS 14 stuff. App Drawer, various stuff that tweaks did better first, et cetera. But the thing I care about the most are the new emojis (🏳️‍⚧️🏳️‍⚧️ If you have the new emoji available, that will appear as a trans flag! 🥳).

But it is entirely possible to get new emojis on older iOS!


The actual steps.

  • Open up settings, find the "EmojiFontManager" preference panel, and select the option named after your new folder. If there is none, you did the previous steps wrong.
  • Respring and enjoy iOS 14 emojis! 🏳️‍⚧️

EDIT: A funny little unrelated side note, I noticed that the trans flag emoji appears for me on desktop with Firefox but not Chromium. Weird.

EDIT 2: I've noticed that the new emojis don't work in Safari/other iOS browsers, but they do in other apps.

EDIT 3: I fixed the link.

EDIT 4: Re-fixed link.
