Known Issues

- If stuck at booting pongoOS or found Pongo USB mode device, Ctrl+C, type exit, then retry, don't reboot the device. It happens on A9 and older devices. If it still doesn't work, you can also try unplugging and replugging the device. ( Rootful ) Make sure you created fakeFS/bindFS before jailbreaking with rootful, or else you'll also be stuck on the pongoOS screen.

- ( Rootful ) "panic: mount exited (exit status 66)" issue with BindFS on iOS 16, use FakeFS instead.

- Does not work on iOS 16.4, attempting to do so will cause an infinite loop trying to mount the rootfs
