  • [Question] How do I jailbreak ios version 14.3 so I can use Cydia. I have never jailbroken before so dumb it down for me. | 2021-01-18
    I just did it myself for the first time yesterday on my Windows machine using USB stick with [checkn1x]( flashed onto it. It's super easy with checkra1n if you have Mac or Linux because it pretty much guides you through the process.

  • [Help] Jailbreak iPhone 8 with iOS 14.2? | 2021-01-10
    The only option is checkra1n but you need mac or linux to use it. You don't need to install linux, you can use checkn1x found here. This is a live bootable version of linux which allows you to use checkra1n. If you don't want to do that then you can't use checkra1n.
  • Jailbreak iPhone X iOS 14.0.1 | 2021-01-10
    I recommend staying on 14.0.1, as there might come an untethered jailbreak for that iOS soon. You can already jailbreak your iPhone using checkra1n. You could use the latest one of that. If you only have a Windows pc, you can use checkn1x or bootra1n (I personally prefer checkn1x, as the dev updates the tool every time checkra1n updates) The guides of how to use the tools are all in the links I provided.
  • [Question] Any way to re-jailbreak with Checkra1n after iPhone reboot without reconnecting to a computer? (like a Checkra1n app?) | 2021-01-08
    Yeah! It’s a full operating system using grub that only loads Checkra1n! All you do is load it onto a usb or disk or whatever and boot from it in the bios. You can get it from github here :)
