Checkra1n jailbreak is the latest news in the jailbreak community through which a lot of users found wings to jailbreak and Cydia. While iOS 13 jailbreak is now at work successfully, we see an update with tfp0 POC bringing a new hope to A12 (X) device jailbreak. So if you are interested in, keep on reading.
About new tfp0 POC with a new hope to Jailbreak iOS
Those who are currently not with the privileges to checkra1n Download as you are on a newer device than A11 have some good news here with a new tfp0 POC. This affects iOS 12.4.1 and iOS 12.4.2 and starting the device support from A 12(X) which still lacks in the latest checkra1n jailbreak. And probably this will open up for semi-untethered jailbreak like previous tools “Chimera” and “Unc0ver”. And it still brings no relevance to any of iOS 13 versions. So in that case, it is important to stay on the lowest possible firmware if you want to get benefited of this new tool in the days ahead. But unfortunately downgrading the firmware on supported models is currently denied.
Tfp0 and Checkra1n Jailbreak
There is no any connection between checkra1n and the newly revealed tfp0 POC. While checkra1n is a powerful jailbreak based to the hardware bootrom bug call checkm8, it is unpatchable by Apple. But tfp0 is totally contrasting which has already covered on the latest firmware versions although it confirms the support through some older versions which are not signed at this moment.
iOS 13 Jailbreak up in future
Thanks to Checkra1n jailbreak iOS 13 came out sometimes back, A5-A11 devices got chance to jailbreak and install Cydia. The tool still appears in beta and confirms the support from iOS 12.3 to upper versions. Different from the previously updated tools, it appears to be a semi-tethered jailbreak currently with Mac OSX support only. But in case if you want Windows and Linux compatibility, you can run Ra1nstorm Helper to get the virtual support.
By now checkra1n supports up to iOS 13.2.2. But with time, it will add support to all the upcoming firmware as well including iOS 13.3, the next major update. In fact, the tool is based on a powerful hardware bug checkm8 which is unpatchable by Apple with a usual software update. So it will continue to be an opportunity for more jailbreak developments. But it will maintain the device support between A5 to A11 devices.
