Here’s how to jailbreak iOS 14.2 and furthermore jailbreak iPadOS 14.2 using the very mainstream checkra1n that depends on the bootrom-based checkm8 misuse.
To effectively finish the cycle, you’ll need a viable iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch running iOS 14.2 or iPadOS 14.2 just as a Mac PC to execute the underlying checkra1n app.
If you have observed the entirety of that data and still need to continue with the jailbreak, then this is the cycle that you should follow:
Note: Checkra1n 0.12.1 currently offers the following support:
- Official support for iOS 12.0 – 14.2
- Official support for iOS/tvOS 14.2 (A8(X)-A9(X) running iOS and iPadOS; all tvOS devices are supported)
- Official support for Apple TV 4K breakout boards (Standard and Advanced)
Supported devices include:
- iPhone 6s, 6s Plus, and SE
- iPad 5th generation
- iPad Air 2
- iPad mini 4
- iPad Pro 1st generation
- Apple TV 4 and 4K
- iBridge T2
The following devices aren’t currently supported but will be in a future update to checkra1n:
- iPhone 7 and 7 Plus
- iPad 6th and 7th generation
- iPod touch 7
- iPad Pro 2nd generation
- iPhone 8, 8 Plus, and X
Step 1: Navigate to checkra.in and download the most recent form of the Checkra1n jailbreak tool.
Step 2: Once the important file has been downloaded, extricate the DMG file that accompanies it and install it to the/Applications folder on your Mac.
Step 3: If your Mac would not like to trust the checkra1n app and won’t let you open it, then experience the accompanying steps. Or on the other hand, if everything opens as you would expect and no mistakes are tossed, then move to Step 4:
- Head into the System Preferences app and select the Security and Privacy alternative.
- Select “Open Anyway” trailed by “Open” and enter your administrator secret word when prompted.
- Try to run the checkra1n app again and you shouldn’t have any issues.
Step 4: Run the checkra1n app.
Step 5: With Checkra1n as yet running, connect your device through a Lightning link and afterward click the Start button and select OK.
Step 6: Select “Next” and afterward continue with the directions that the app gives you. This will bring about your device going into DFU Mode.
Step 7: Checkra1n will basically assume control over the cycle once it identifies the device in DFU Mode. The iPhone or iPad will reboot a couple of times during the cycle so don’t get concerned when that happens.
