Chimera jailbreak for iOS 12 picks up Procursus & libhooker support in latest beta

While much of the modern jailbreak community is currently focusing on current firmware versions like iOS & iPadOS 13 and 14, that hasn’t stopped the Chimera Team from launching a new beta version of its iOS 12-centric Chimera jailbreak tool.

Chimera Team lead developer CoolStar took to the Announcements section of the official Discord channel bright and early Monday morning to share links to Chimera v1.5.0 beta 1 — the latest public beta of the jailbreak tool for iOS 12 devices:

CoolStar updates libhooker to v1.3.0 with memory optimizations & more

Cydia Substrate isn’t the only tweak injector receiving new updates as of late. Libhooker, the premier tweak injection method for the iOS 13-based Odyssey jailbreak and for the Odysseyra1n script for the checkra1n jailbreak, just got a fresh upgrade to version 1.3.0 with some notable improvements.

Odyssey Team lead developer CoolStar announced the updated libhooker release Saturday night via Twitter, and further described the update and everything it brings in the official Discord channel:

Chimera v1.4.0 update introduces stability gains via limited libhooker support

Electra Team lead developer CoolStar took to Twitter late last night to announce that the Chimera jailbreak tool for iOS 12.0-12.4 had been updated to version 1.4.0.

It’s the first update to be released for the aging Chimera jailbreak since last September, and despite multiple teasers for Chimera13, an alleged iOS 13-supported version of the Electra Team’s jailbreak tool, CoolStar recently pulled the plug on plans to launch it.
