Checkra1n Jailbreak Instructions
This past weekend, the checkra1n team formally published the checkm8 bootrom exploit-based jailbreak tool to the general public as a public beta.
Although we strongly advise waiting until the program is released from beta, we completely understand if you’re itching to get started right away.
In this guide, we’ll demonstrate how to jailbreak a supported iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch using the checkra1n program.

You must be familiar with a few criteria before using checkra1n to jailbreak an iPhone:
Currently, the program is only available for Linux and macOS (support for Windows is coming soon)
- The tool is semi-tethered, so if you turn it off you’ll need a computer to restart jailbreaking.
- With a few exceptions, the tool supports 64-bit A5-A11 devices from the iPhone 5s to the iPhone X, with the iPad Air 2, iPad (5th generation), and iPad Pro being the exceptions (1st generation).
- iOS 12.0 or later must be installed on your device.
- The following devices are being tested with the tool: the iPhone 5s, iPad Mini 2, iPad Mini 3, and iPad Air.
- Although Cydia is already loaded, other package managers will eventually be available as an alternative.
Using iPadOS 14 or iOS?
You should read the notes below to understand more about the security of jailbreaking with checkra1n if you’re using iOS or iPadOS 14.
Currently, only A8, A8X, A9, A9X, A10, and A10X devices running iPadOS 14 or iOS are officially supported by checkra1n.
This translates to the fact that you can jailbreak these devices without any restrictions and guarantee at least the same level of security as you would have otherwise. The following are all components of the aforementioned devices.
- iPhone 6s, 6s Plus, SE, 7 and 7 Plus
- iPad 5th, 6th and 7th generations
- iPad Air 2
- iPad mini 4
- iPad Pro 1st and 2nd generations
- iPod touch 7
You can still jailbreak with checkra1n if you are on iOS or iPadOS 14 on an A11-equipped device, like as the iPhone 8, 8 Plus, or X, but there is a catch.
Before jailbreaking, users must activate the “Skip A11 BPR check” option in the checkra1n app. The jailbroken device will start up after that without a passcode.
Because it eliminates authentication and user security, this isn’t advised for most users, but it might be a practical option for developers to test their work on a more recent device.
It’s unclear whether the checkra1n team will be able to resolve this inconvenience, but you should read our in-depth essay to learn more about what it means for you and what you can do to safeguard your data.
Without further ado, let’s begin the jailbreaking process if you have a compatible device.
