Checkra1n For Linux Beta

Written by Hassan Abbas

Checkra1n For Linux Beta: The checkra1n jailbreak has earned quite an impressive reputation over the past few months. As it became both the first iOS 13-supported jailbreak. Also, the first un-patchable bootrom exploit-based jailbreak to be launched. But there’s also a certain stigma surrounding the checkra1n jailbreak as it only runs on macOS while writing.

Fortunately, it changes sooner besides later. While a Windows version of the jailbreak tool is probably rather far off due to the difficulties of its development. The good news is that the Linux version of checkra1n is going to complete and could be launched very soon. Checkra1n co-developer Nikias Bassen (@pimskeks) announced via Twitter this Tuesday afternoon:

As it would seem, developing checkra1n for Linux was quite a rough ride in terms of USB controllers and dependencies. But the checkra1n team appears to be close to figuring things out. Bassen doesn’t share an accurate ETA for the launch of checkra1n for Linux. But he denotes in a follow-up Tweet that it should be launched long before Nullcon in March, which is just weeks from now.

While this probably isn’t the news that Windows users wanted to hear. Still, it’s the best situation than before. Linux is free and easy to dual-boot on Windows PC. Whereas piecing together a macOS-based Hackintosh is quite difficult and doesn’t always work satisfactorily. That said, it’ll be a way for Windows users to jailbreak with checkra1n without begging off Mac users or visiting Apple Stores.

Nullcon:

As for Nullcon, it looks that members of the checkra1n team presenting there challenges to make checkra1n both Linux and Windows-compatible. While the presentation seems a lot like hacker jargon to the average Joe, those that are into this sort of thing might find it specifically charming.
