How To Jailbreak IPhone

How To Jailbreak IPhone

This wikiHow teaches you how to jailbreak your iPhone using Unc0ver and Checkra1n. Both tools are easy to use and work on most newer iPhones. Unc0ver is one of the few tools that can jailbreak the most recent versions of iOS (iOS 11 through 13). Checkra1n offers preliminary support for iOS 14 on some devices. Jailbreaking allows you to install apps and tweaks that aren't allowed in the App Store, which gives you more control over your iPhone. Be aware that Apple does not recommend jailbreaking and may not provide you support after doing so. Also, make sure you back up your iPhone data before jailbreaking.

This page is the ultimate introduction to jailbreaking. Along with the frequently asked questions about everything jailbreak related, you will find links to detailed tutorials on how to jailbreak your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, and Apple TV.

The semi-tethered checkra1n tool can jailbreak the aforementioned and below, on A9-A10-equipped devices (iPhone 6s & 6s Plus) and iPhone 7 & 7 Plus) running any version of iOS or iPadOS 12-14.x with no strings attached.

It can also jailbreak the aforementioned on A11 devices (iPhone X, 8 & 8 Plus), but you will not be able to set a passcode afterwards. This is not recommended for obvious security reasons at the time of this writing, but it may or may not be fixed in the future. A jailbreak tweak called checkl0ck can offer at least temporary refuge from this rather significant caveat while in a jailbroken state. For older firmware versions, see below.

Devices equipped with the A12 chip or newer (iPhone XR, XS/XS Max or newer) can jailbreak iOS & iPadOS 14.0-14.3 with Taurine and unc0ver or iOS & iPadOS 15.0-15.1.1 with XinaA15. No jailbreak currently exists for these devices on any version of iOS or iPadOS 16.x. For older firmware versions, see below.

Typically, jailbreaking adds an unofficial installer to your device which lets you download 3rd-party applications, tweaks, and extensions that are not available through the App Store. These packages open up endless possibilities to do things on your device that a non-jailbroken one would never be able to do. The most famous and oldest of these installers is called Cydia. Competing and rapidly growing alternatives to Cydia now exist, such as Zebra and Sileo.

You may have heard a few horror stories about people who tried to jailbreak their iPhone or iPad and ended up turning it into a paperweight. Although this may have happened in the very early days of the iPhone, it is now so difficult as to be impossible for any average user. These stories are nearly always a badly-timed hardware issue happening to a first-timer, and what they are describing is something like their phone screen dying instead.

Yes, you can use iTunes and App Store after jailbreaking your device. As a matter of fact, nothing will really change. The only small annoyance is that some App Store apps, such as banking apps, include jailbreak detection which prevents them running when jailbroken. This can be circumvented for most apps with a tweak. The most notable change to your device will be that, after jailbreaking, you will have a new package manager application installed, like Cydia or Sileo.

In short, Cydia and Sileo are package managers: apps that allow you to browse, install, and remove jailbreak apps and tweaks. You can think of it as the App Store, but for jailbreak applications. Most apps and tweaks on Cydia or Sileo are free, but it is not unusual for a more complex jailbreak tweak offerings to cost a few dollars.

The lone exceptions to this game of cat and mouse are jailbreaks built upon a hardware-based exploit, such as checkra1n. This kind of jailbreak cannot be patched with a software update because the vulnerability it uses lies deeper in the system, such as in the bootrom or hardware. Devices which have a jailbreak of this type can be jailbroken for life, regardless of what iOS or iPadOS version they are on. However, this kind of jailbreak tends to be tether
