Apple has recently updated its iOS version as well as they have published their latest apple devices. Apple devices and operating systems are always coming with the best user experience, performance, and security. Apple always imposes many security restrictions over its devices and If you are an Apple device user, you might already know that you can not even change single default options in your device.
You can not customize device themes, icons, and any default option. And furthermore, Apple does not allow you to install third-party apps and tweaks that come with advanced options and features. You can even get paid features for free with these apps and tweaks.
Jailbreaking is the solution to override these restrictions. Jailbreak is active for a long time now. These jailbreak tools are based on your device operating system and device version. Jailbreak tools are developed based on software or hardware exploits. For the last 9 years, we only had software exploits. Software exploits are based on vulnerabilities on a particular iOS version and its firmware.
So when apple identifies this exploit, they publish a security patch to remove the exploit with its next version update. If you are having software exploit based jailbreak and you have updated your jailbroken device, you have to re-jailbreak after the version update.
For 9 long years, Apple device users only experienced software-based exploits. After a long time, 17th September of 2019, a prominent security researcher published hardware exploit for A5 to A12 based apple devices. This is actually a remarkable turning point for the jailbreak community. Now, most Apple device users are eagerly waiting for checkm8 based jailbreak. Checkm8 exploit is a bootrom exploit.
If you are an active jailbreak community member you should know that bootrom exploits are very rare. Because it will exploit device hardware instead of software. Last couple of years we only experienced software exploit based jailbreak tools. These jailbreaks won’t last long. Because apple will always patches these software exploits. But they won’t be able to patch a hardware-based exploit.
Luca Todesco, a well-respected hacker, and a security researcher tweets about upcoming checkra1n, a jailbreak tool utility which totally based on checkm8 bootrom exploit. So this will be an unbelievable jailbreak for apple device users. So now a hard-ware exploit based jailbreak utility is coming after many years. Specialty in this kind of jailbreak is that Apple won’t be able to patch and fix this kind of hardware-based exploits. Then apple has to recall the devices and do the patch at the hardware level. So with checkra1n, we can have a totally solid and non-disrupted jailbreak tool.
Luca Todesco has published glimpses about this jailbreak a couple of days back. He is a famed hacker and Yalu jailbreak developer. He has teased several images of this checkra1n jailbreak. So checkra1n will have full-fledged jailbreak with Cydia and tweak injection. Many developers contributed to this checkra1n jailbreak along with Luca. axi0mX the mastermind behind checkm8 exploit, qwertyoruiopz, Siguza, ih8sn0w are few of prominent developers who contributed for this checkra1n jailbreak.
This recent weekend, checkra1n official twitter page tweeted the latest news about this checkra1n jailbreak. This tweet contains an image of an older iPod and an iPhone 5/5s with a checkra1n app on those device's Home screens.
Luca Todesco also shares this new news as a tweet though his personal tweet account. He has mentioned that checkra1n is designed to be a seamless experience and the checkra1n team has put a lot of effort to make this jailbreak success with fast and smooth jailbreaking experience.
As mentioned-before, checkm8 exploit is compatible with A5 to A12 based devices. So this exploit is compatible with one of the most recent Apple devices like iPhone X. This latest checkra1n jailbreak tool also supports iPhone X and earlier versions of iOS. iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max devices are the predecessor of iPhone X and these device series came with A12X Bionic chipset. And the latest iPhone 11 series came with A13 bionic chipset. Checkm8 exploit does not support either of these chipsets. So sadly, if you have an iPhone XS or iPhone XS Max or iPhone XR or iPhone 11 series device, you can not have this checkra1n jailbreak.
Now with this jailbreak, we can assume that now Apple device users can have jailbreak for a lifetime. Just like iPhone 4 with nostalgic limera1n jailbreak before 9 years, you can get this experience onto your apple devices. This checkm8 exploit also enables the facility to firmware downgrade regardless of apple’s signing status.
If you are an Apple device user who seeks a solid jailbreak tool, you need to be really patient to get the best tool. Checkra1n jailbreak project will provide you the best tool. Just wait for their updates.
