You are currently not running a macOS or Linux device and this guide will not work on your system. You can use Odysseyn1x (A9X) instead.

If you are using an A9X device running iOS 14.4.2 or earlier, you should follow Installing Odysseyra1n and use checkra1n version 0.12.2 instead.

Odysseyra1n is a semi-tethered jailbreak, meaning it requires a PC to re-apply the exploit after a reboot. Click the link to learn more.

On A9X devices, it is not possible to use checkra1n 0.12.4 (required for 14.5 to 14.8 support) without the use of a custom pongoOS and checkra1n in CLI mode.

After installing checkra1n, we’ll be using a script to install Odysseyra1n. This replaces important parts of the jailbreak with modern and fast alternatives.

If you are using Windows, proceed to Odysseyn1x (A9X).

If you’re migrating from unc0ver to Odysseyra1n, you must follow Removing unc0ver before proceeding.
