With that information out of the way, let’s dive right in and take a look at the step-by-step process:
Step 1: Open your browser and take yourself on over to checkra.in and download the latest version of the checkra1n app for your Mac computer.
Step 2: Take the downloaded DMG file and install the checka1n app to your /Applications folder.
Step 3: If the built-in macOS 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: Now, launch the checkra1n app from your /Applications folder. Take yourself into the checkra1n Options and check the “Allow untested iOS/iPadOS/tvOS versions” option. Now, select Back. Ticking this feature will allow you to jailbreak iOS 14.7 and iPadOS 14.7 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 necessary cable and click on the Start option. Select OK and then keep an eye on the checkra1n app.
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.
