Despite Apple’s best efforts to keep iOS a closed ecosystem, the jailbreak community is still finding ways to crack the operating system. Truth be told, Apple is making it more and more difficult to find exploits and security flaws with every new update that it releases but fortunately, the developers behind the Checkra1n jailbreak tool have now released a new tool that can unlock the latest iOS 13.3.
Checkra1n Jailbreak Tool is now Available for for iOS 13.3
It’s been less than a couple of days since Apple released iOS 13.3 and the developers who are in charge of the Checkra1n jailbreak tool have already discovered an exploit. This is quite impressive and we have to give Checkra1n’s developers praise because it usually takes a couple of weeks, if not months before someone manages to crack Apple’s latest updates.
“I just updated my 7+ to 13.3 through iTunes and ipsw, and rejailbroke with checkra1n 0.9.6. It worked, but I had to reinstall all my tweaks from fresh. Not sure about ota update, but make sure to get a backup of your tweaks with Batchomatic,” said a jailbreak enthusiast who used the Checkra1n tool.
