Now you can jailbreak Apple's new operating system, at least as long as you have an older
The Checkm8 vulnerability has been used to unlock iOS 14, Ipad OS 14 and tvOS 14 on older models of iPhone or iPad.
The vulnerability known as Checkm8 was discovered back in September 2019 and made it possible to circumvent Apple's limitations on older models of iPhone, iPad and Apple TV.
Now the jailbreak tool Checkra1n v 0.11.0 is using the Checkm8 vulnerability to unlock iOS 14, iPad OS 14 and tvOS 14.
At the time of writing, the following devices may be jailbroken:
- iPhone 6S
- iPhone 6S Plus
- iPhone SE (1st generation)
- iPad (5th generation)
- iPad Air 2
- iPad Mini 4
- iPad Pro (1st generation)
- Apple TV (4th generation)
- Apple TV 4K
The developers behind Checkra1n announce that they hope to add support for more devices later this year.
By jailbreaking an iPhone or iPad, you get access to the apps in the alternative software store Cydia. The downside is reduced security and increased risk of the system crashing, which means you should think too carefully before deciding to install Checkra1n.
