AltStore

  1. Download the latest version of AltStore for your computer and install it.
  2. Connect your iPhone to your computer, open iTunes, and enable Wi-Fi sync. In macOS Catalina, you would need to open Finder and click on ‘Show this iPhone when on WiFi’. In Windows, this can be done by using iTunes.
  3. If you are on Mac: Open AltServer on your computer and right-click on its icon in the menubar/system tray and click on Install Mail Plug-in. Enter your Mac password to allow AltServer permissions to install the plug-in. Restart mail app and go to Mail > Preference > Manage Plug-ins to enable AltPlugin and restart Mail again. If you are on Windows, you can skip this step and directly go to step 4.
  4. When your iPhone is connected to your computer via Wi-Fi sync, right-click on the AltServer icon and click on Install AltStore. Enter your Apple ID email and password to continue. Once the installation is complete you will see the AltStore app on your iOS device.
  5. Using Safari on your iOS device, download the latest version (mirror link) of unc0ver and install it using the AltStore app. Open unc0ver and tap jailbreak to complete the process.
