Jailbreak iOS 14 Status Update For iPhone And iPad
Looking to jailbreak iOS 14 or iPadOS 14? Here is the current iOS 14 jailbreak status. That is the question that a lot of passionate jailbreakers will be asking themselves. Especially today with it being Apple’s hotly-anticipated iOS 14 release day.
Whenever Apple releases a major new version of iOS, the dilemma is relatively simple for passionate jailbreak lovers. Do they upgrade their device in order to experience all of the new changes, or do they remain on an earlier version of iOS that they know is “jailbreak safe” and forgo those sweet new features and functionality enhancements? It’s a tough decision to make but it may be slightly easier when you consider the power that the popular checkra1n jailbreak has.
Most jailbreakers will understand the power of the checkra1n jailbreak by now. Because its underlying exploit is bootrom-based, it means that Apple cannot patch the jailbreak with a software update. That, in turn, means that all devices that are vulnerable to the hardware exploit can be jailbroken forever, regardless of the firmware patches that Apple issues.
That means that if you have an iPhone X or older, then you will be able to jailbreak your device as soon as the team behind the checkra1n utility put their plan in motion and release an iOS 14 compatibility update into the public domain.
It is extremely likely that the team has been working studiously behind the scenes on the iOS 14 pre-release seeds to ensure that a compatibility release can be pushed out. Now, with the initial release of iOS 14 final out in the wild, we’re hoping that it is only a matter of days until the checkra1n team pushes out a release offering official iOS 14 support for iPhone X and older. Stay tuned and we will, of course, update as soon as we have any other information.
For now, if you are currently jailbroken and you value that experience, then it’s definitely worth holding off on that iOS 14 update until you hear some concrete release information from the relevant teams.
