Chimera v1.3.9 released with boosted exploit reliability on 4K devices

The Electra Team posted an updated version of the iOS 12-centric Chimera jailbreak tool this week with a focus on jailbreak reliability on older handsets. The latest update brings the Chimera jailbreak tool up to version 1.3.9.

The Electra Team announced the launch of Chimera v1.3.9 via Twitter late last night, noting that it touts a more robust version of the Sock Puppet 3 exploit:

The reliability improvements come by way of 4K devices, such as the iPhone 5s and iPhone 6. This means anyone using these devices and jailbreaking with Chimera should see an enhanced exploit success rate when compared with the previous version of the tool.

It’s worth noting that the unc0ver jailbreak by Pwn20wnd received a similar update just over a week ago that improved exploit reliability on older handsets, which means both tools are nearly up to speed with one another in terms of exploit performance.

If you’d like to download the latest version of the Chimera jailbreak tool, then you can do so from the Electra Team’s official Chimera website. You can also take advantage of our step-by-step tutorial to ensure that you don’t experience any hiccups while attempting to liberate your device.
