Frequently Asked Questions
Being one of the newest and most popular jailbreaks, it’s no surprise that we get asked many questions. These answer the most common ones:
What is Checkm8?
Checkm8 is the exploit the jailbreak is depend on. It is a permanent exploit that could not be patched by Apple – ever – and it works on a big number of iOS devices. As if the iPhone 4S right up to the iPhone x, some device on an A5 to A11 chip is vulnerable to the exploit.
How Does Checkra1n app Work?
While you have downloaded the jailbreak onto your Mac and associate your device, follow the instructions to put your device into DFU. From there, the jailbreak tool automatically does its work and, though your device reboots, it is jailbroken. But, because it is a tethered jailbreak when you reboot your device, you would need to re-connect it to your Mac and re-jailbreak it.
Can I Use Checkra1n app to SSH into My Device?
Yes, you could. An SSH server is installed on localhost on port 44, but it could only be exposed on your local computer managing iProxy with a USB device.
When Will checkra1n Get Windows Support?
Even though there are plans to release a Windows version, there is no news about it. We know that it would not be for some time, given the amount of work wanted to write a kernel driver that permits Windows. This is an incredibly complex piece of coding that can take some time to write, so, for now, it will only work on macOS.
Why Do I Have Trouble Putting My Device into DFU Mode?
If you are managing a USB-C Lightning cable, especially if it is the original one that came with your device, for any reason, DFU mode doesn’t looks to work with them. It’s best to try using an older USB-A cable. If absolutely pushed, any third-party cables may work too, though it is recommended to stick to the official Apple cables where possible.
Can I Switch from Checkra1n to Unc0ver Jailbreak? Or Vice Versa?
Whenever you are using Unc0ver jailbreak and want to see at Checkra1n without forfeiting all your tweaks. Create an empty file at /.mount_rw and run the Checkra1n jailbreak. Gives you originally jailbroke your device using Unc0ver and have created that file, you could switch between the two as much as you need.
Do you intend to try Checkra1n jailbreak on your device?
It is a small fiddly, and it is a tethered jailbreak, but it’s the most constantly and compatible one to date. Please give it a go and see what you think of it.
