How To Use Chimera App To Install sileo On iPhone

Posted April 30, 2019 by Beejay Adoghe in Apple iPhone

In the last year or so, we have seen the jailbreak utilities start to trickle back, after a relatively long period where things weren’t so good. However, many of the recent jailbreaks have not had support for the newest devices but the latest one to be released has. Chimera jailbreak, released by Electra jailbreak team, works on all iOS devices that are running iOS 12 to iOS 12.1.2 and that includes all the newest iPhones and iPads.

 

There is one thing missing from this jailbreak though – support for Cydia. Instead, we have an alternative package installer and management tool called Sileo so, if you are interested in giving Chimera jailbreak for iOS 12 a try, keep reading for the download details.

 

How to Install Chimera Jailbreak for iOS 12:

Chimera jailbreak is quite easy to install, but you will need to use Cydia Impactor to do it. That means using your Mac or PC and your Apple ID. Before you go any further though, first check that iTunes is up t date on your computer. You don’t need it for the process, but it does need to be up to date. Open iTunes and click on Help > Check for updates.

 

You also need to ensure you back your data up, just in case something goes wrong during the jailbreak process.

  • Download the Chimera Jailbreak IPA file onto your computer
  • Download Cydia Impactor onto your computer
  • Connect your device and launch Cydia Impactor
  • When your device has been detected ( if necessary, tap Yes on the Trust This Computer message on your device ), drag the IPA file onto Cydia Impactor
  • Input your Apple details, and an Expired Certificates warning may appear – if it does, click OK
  • Now leave your device and let Cydia Impactor sideload Chimera onto it.
  • You will see the app icon on your home screen; before you do anything else, open your Settings app
  • Tap on General > Profiles and tap your Apple ID in the list
  • Tap Trust and close Settings
  • Tap the Chimera icon on your home screen and then tap the Jailbreak button
  • Wait for the jailbreak to finish and a confirmation message to appear on the screen
  • Your device will reboot, and you should see the Sileo icon on your home screen.
  • Tap the Chimera icon, and you will see confirmation of the jailbreak.
  • Use Sileo as you would Cydia.

If you don’t see the Sileo icon, repeat from step 10 again.

Before we move on you, need to know that Chimera, like other recent jailbreaks, is semi-untethered and will require reinstallation when you reboot your device.
