Latest Release

checkra1n 0.9.1 beta

To download checkra1n on Windows you have to scroll to the top of the page.

Important information

What’s new

This beta fixes multiple bugs, including:

  • An issue where the loader app would crash when installing Cydia on iPads
  • A crash when the macOS language was set to anything other than English
  • An issue where iPad Minis would not work with the GUI
  • An issue with the scp binary not working as expected

This version also improves clarity of some errors, specifically the -20 error, which now offers guidance on how to resolve it.

Unsupported devices

checkra1n supports all devices between the iPhone 5s and the iPhone 11, however we are having dependency issues with certain iPad models

  • iPad Air 2
  • iPad 5th Gen
  • iPad Pro 1st Gen

Support for these devices will be added in a later release.

Support for the following devices is experimental, and may require more attempts than usual:

  • iPhone 5s
  • iPad Mini 2
  • iPad Mini 3
  • iPad Air

Reliability on these devices will be improved in future releases.

Unsupported platforms

This beta is available for macOS and Windows. Work is ongoing to support Linux, which will be added in a later release.

Package managers

At the moment, checkra1n only supports installing Cydia. Support for other package managers is coming soon, and will not require a checkra1n update.
