Following the release of an Unc0ver beta with Sock Puppet exploit, the Electra team has also updated Chimera jailbreaking tool with the exploit. This means the tool can be used for jailbreaking iPhones and iPads running iOS 12 – iOS 12.2.
The Electra team today released Chimera v1.1.0 which updates the bundled Sileo release to the latest version and fixes a bug with the package manager’s icon not showing up after a successful jailbreak.
The Electra jailbreaking team surprised everyone by releasing Chimera jailbreak for iOS 12 – iOS 12.1.2. While there was already Unc0ver jailbreak for iOS 12 – iOS 12.1.2 iPhones and iPads, it was relatively unstable in nature and lacked support for A12 Bionic devices like the iPhone XS and iPhone XR. In comparison, Chimera jailbreak is more polished and stable in nature and supports all A12 Bionic iPhones and iPads.
The Chimera jailbreak for iOS 12 – iOS 12.1.2 marks a first for a lot of things in the jailbreaking community. It is the first jailbreaking tool to support iPhone XS and iPhone XR and its also the first jailbreak which does not ship with Cydia as its default package manager. Instead, it ships with Sileo — a new and modern package manager that is more refined than Cydia in every possible way. Like Cydia though, one needs to manually add package sources in Sileo for it to show jailbreak tweaks.
