This is still in beta stages but anyway users can download this checkra1n jailbreak beta version. What to expect in these beta jailbreak tools are bugs and unexpected stucks. So the developers request users to be careful in installing this jailbreak until a firm release.

This release is an early beta preview and as such should not be installed on a primary device. We strongly recommend proceeding with caution.

Checkra1n jailbreak latest version

The latest version is beta 0.9.2 at this moment.

New features added to this 0.9.2 version are;

  • Improve reliability of entering DFU mode
  • Fixed an issue where the Apple Watch would not receive notifications while jailbroken
  • Fixed an issue where checkra1n could not be used on macOS 10.10

This beta adds an option to boot into no-substrate mode. To utilize this functionality, hold the volume-up button when the Apple logo appears until the device finishes booting. From there you’ll be able to uninstall any tweaks causing you issues and reboot to get back to a normal jailbroken state.
