Checkra1n for iOS is one of the most important developments in the iPhone jailbreaking scene in recent times. It is based on the checkm8 bootrom exploit and it is capable of jailbreaking all iPhones launched up until the iPhone X. But did you know that checkra1n is so versatile that you can use a rooted Android phone to jailbreak an iPhone using it?
Yes, you read that right! You can use a rooted Android phone to jailbreak an iPhone using checkra1n. This has become possible because of checkra1n recently gaining Linux support which allows one to use the tool on Android devices. Checkra1n is not available for Windows which means one has to get their hands on a Mac or Linux PC to jailbreak their iPhone. In case you don’t have access to one, you can now use a rooted Android phone to jailbreak your iPhone.
You will need a USB-C to Lightning cable or a USB-C to USB-A adapter to connect your iPhone to your Android phone. Also, note that your Android device must be rooted otherwise you will not be able to use checkra1n to jailbreak your iPhone. The entire process is relatively straight forward and requires you to put your iPhone in DFU mode and then use the Terminal app on your rooted Android phone.
