Checkra1n Jailbreak Updated With Support for iOS 14.2

Posted November 8, 2020 at 6:45pm by iClarified
The checkra1n jailbreak has been updated with support for iOS 14.2. The release includes official support for A10/A10X devices and limited support for A11 devices (iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone X).

Here's a look at what's new...

Highlighted changes
● Official support for iOS 14.1 and 14.2
● Official support for A10/A10X devices on iOS 14.x
● Limited support for A11 devices on iOS 14.x (Options > Skip A11 BPR check)
● A “Quick Mode” option that makes the GUI/TUI run on a timer and require no button clicks

Bug fixes
● Fixes a widespread issue that could cause crashes or hangs at various stages of booting across all devices and iOS versions
● Fixes a kernel patch that made many kexts think the device was in restore mode
● Fixes an issue where the tvOS loader would crash on tvOS 13.x
● Fixes a GUI/TUI issue that would cause failure with A7 devices
● Fixes a GUI/TUI issue where failure to jailbreak could cause memory corruption
● Fixes an issue where the T2 overlay was not being sent in the Linux version
● Ships a vastly updated PongoOS, including:
○ Working USB on all SoCs
○ A hardware AES driver for all SoCs, providing access to GID keys and more
○ Booting with -p works once again

Other changes
● Users who used a modified checkra1n build will get a warning popup

Known issues
● On Apple A10 devices running iOS 14, boot may sometimes hang in pongoOS. In that case, reboot the device and retry.
● Jailbreaking tvOS using the GUI might not work in some cases. As a workaround, you can use the CLI.
● NVRAM is not unlocked on iOS 14.2
● A7 devices are currently known to not work with the Linux version
● The exploit may not work as reliably on some devices, such as the Raspberry Pi Zero and Raspberry Pi 3
● Linux GUI build when using CLI mode doesn’t support auto assertion of DFU mode on advanced Apple TV 4k breakout boards
● bridgeOS:
○ May need to reconnect the device after exploitation for bootstrap upload
○ As soon as macOS boots it’ll take over the USB connection and disallow communication

Unsupported platforms
This beta is only available for macOS and Linux. Work is ongoing to support Windows, which will be added in a later release.

Package managers
At the moment, checkra1n only supports installing Cydia. Support for other package managers, including Zebra and Installer is coming soon and is expected within the coming weeks.
