Chimera 1.0.5 iOS 12 Jailbreak Update Released With Camera And Mail App Bug Fixes

The team behind the Chimera jailbreak has taken the jailbreak utility to version 1.0.5 and introduced a number of important user-facing fixes. Announced via Twitter, the Chimera 1.0.5 update is available with immediate effect for devices running iOS 12 through 12.1.2.

As is generally the case in today’s modern world, the update was initially announced via Twitter through the main Electra Team Twitter account.

The team announced that version 1.0.5 of Chimera includes an important fix for a bug which has manifested itself in the native Mail app on jailbroken devices. It also includes an “attempt” at fixing a camera bug which has thus far only manifested itself in devices with an internal A12 processor.

The latest update also updates the delivered version of Sileo to 1.0.6 and offers all of the benefits which come attached with that version of the package manager.

It’s also a version which is recommended for everyone as it is the latest and therefore the most stable Chimera release.
