Just yesterday we shared a tweet from checkra1n developer who showed checkra1n and Cydia apps resting on his iOS 14 App Library page. Now it looks like Team checkra1n has made even more progress as far as jailbreaking iOS 14 beta is concerned.
Another member of the checkra1n developer team named Sam Bingner has boasted more progress while showing Cydia running on an iPhone X. This iPhone X is running iOS 14 beta, as can be clearly seen on the shared screenshot.
Bingner’s tweet was accompanied by the text “A little more progress” while in a subsequent tweet he noted that this was possible thanks to the checkra1n tool.
As we clarified in our previous article team checkra1n is currently working with the checkm8 exploit. This is a lifetime hardware based bootrom exploit that is found on all iPhones released with or before iPhone X. Newer iPhone models that includes iPhone 11 Series, iPhone XS Series and iPhone SE 2020 are not vulnerable to this exploit. So even if checkra1n makes iOS 14 jailbreak public, only those with iPhone X or earlier will be able to take advantage of it.
Nevertheless early release of an iOS 14 jailbreak, especially when it is still in beta will give tweak developers an opportunity to work on their existing tweaks and develop new hacks for iOS 14.
