checkra1n has received a new update with support for iOS 13.5 and iPadOS 13.5 jailbreak. This update follows unc0ver 5.0.0, which was released earlier today and also brought support for iOS 13.5.
checkra1n iOS 13.5 Jailbreak
As checkra1n uses a checkm8 bootroom exploit that only impact iPhone 5s – iPhone X, and other iOS devices on A11 and older processors, it does not work with newer devices such as iPad Pro 2020, iPhone SE, and iPhone 11 Pro. If you have any of these new devices and wish to jailbreak, we recommend that you use unc0ver 5.0.0 instead.
How to use checkra1n to jailbreak iOS 13.5
Follow the below steps to jailbreak iOS 13.5 using checkra1n on Mac or Linux:
- Download the latest version of checkra1n and open it.
- Put your iPhone or iPad in DFU mode, and connect to your computer.
- The checkra1n app will do its magic. Your device will restart and be jailbroken.
Note that checkra1n is a semi-tethered jailbreak so if you restart your iOS device, it will go back to original state and you will have to follow the above steps again.
Although checkra1n is easier to use, unc0ver does not require a computer to re-jailbreak. You can easily open the unc0ver app on your iOS device to re-jailbreak after a restart.
