Checkra1n Jailbreak for iOS 13, iPadOS 13: How to, Downloads & News

Checkra1n jailbreak

Checkra1n jailbreak is the world’s first public iOS 13 jailbreak. It is one of the fastest jailbreak to be released after a major iOS software update released by Apple.

Checkra1n is a semi-tethered jailbreak, which is similar to an untethered jailbreak, it gives the ability to reboot your iOS device on its own. On each boot, the iOS device startup sequence is unmodified and it boots into its original, non-jailbroken state. However, instead of needing to use a tool from a computer to re-jailbreak the iOS device again, like a tethered or semi-tethered cases, the user can re-jailbreak their device with the help of an app running on the iOS device.

The checkra1n jailbreak is based on the checkm8 exploit which was discovered in September 2019. It is an unpatchable bootrom exploit that works on all devices up until the iPhone X irrespective of whether they run iOS 12 or iOS 13 and makes them jailbreakable for life.

iOS Versions Supported by Checkra1n Jailbreak 

Checkra1n jailbreak supports iOS 12.3 all the way up to iOS 13.2.2.
