If you are ready to get your jailbreak on, then let’s dive into the nitty-gritty:

Step 1: Jump on over to checkra.in and download the latest version of the checkra1n app for your Mac machine.

Step 2: Find the downloaded DMG file and install it on your /Applications folder on the Mac.

Step 3: If Apple’s built-in security settings won’t allow your Mac to open the app you will need to follow the steps below. If everything opens without any issues you can then skip and move on to Step 4:

  • Head into the System Preferences app and select the Security & Privacy option.
  • Select “Open Anyway” followed by “Open” and enter your administrator password when prompted.
  • Try to run the checkra1n app again and you shouldn’t have any issues.

Step 4: Launch the checkra1n app that you have previously installed. Head into the checkra1n Options and check the “Allow untested iOS/iPadOS/tvOS versions” option. Now, select Back. This will allow you to jailbreak iOS 14.6 and iPadOS 14.6 if the version of checkra1n you are still using currently available does not officially support it yet.

Step 5: Connect your device to the Mac using the provided Lightning cable and then click the Start button and select OK. Keep an eye on the Checkra1n app and make sure that it runs without any issue.

Step 6: Choose “Next” and then follow the instructions that the checkra1n app provides to you to get your device into DFU mode. And that is all that she wrote.

You now need to sit back and wait for the process to finish and you will be left with a jailbroken device running iOS/iPadOS 14.6.
