Less than a week after the official version of iOS 14 was released, it has been announced that it has been compromised. This speed has put Apple under great pressure.
The development team of the iOS jailbreak tool “Checkra1n” has released version 0.11.0 of the jailbreak tool, which adds support for iOS 14, but it only runs on limited devices.
While announcing the software release, the team stated in a statement that it needs “more time to bypass Apple’s new security measures” to support jailbreaking iOS 14 on new devices.
In iOS 14, Apple has added a new barrier to SEPOS of A10 and above (except Apple TV and iBridge): If the device is started from DFU mode and the Secure Enclave receives a request to decrypt user data, it will enable The device is down. Since checkm8 does not give the right to control the Secure Enclave, it is not easy to solve this problem.
However, through the recently released Blackbird vulnerability, developers have been able to gain control of the Secure Enclave on A10 and A10X and disable this barrier. At the same time, support for A10 and A10X devices is underway and is expected to be completed in the next few weeks.
Therefore, the new version of “Checkra1n” can only be applied to iOS 14 and iPadOS 14 on the following devices:
iPhone 6s, 6s Plus and SE
iPad (fifth generation)
iPad Air 2
iPad mini 4
iPad Pro (first generation)
Apple TV 4 and 4K
The team said that it hopes to support updated devices in the next few weeks, and support for iPhone 8 , iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X will be solved in a future release.
