Difference between Chimera jailbreak and unc0ver

One of the major differences between Chimera jailbreak and Unc0ver jailbreak is that Chimera supports Substitute, an alternative to Cydia Substrate, to run jailbreak tweaks. It comes bundled with Sileo, an alternative to Cydia, an app store for jailbreak tweaks.

Why is Chimera so special?

  • Chimera supports all iOS devices including A12 devices. Uncover, Rootless iOS 12 – iOS 12.1.2 jailbreak tools didn’t support for iPhone 5S as well as partial support for A12 devices.
  • Chimera is installed Sileo automatically after the Jailbreaking process. You cannot install Cydia from Chimera automatically.  is the Jailbreak app manager for the latest iOS versions and latest device models such as A12 up to iOS 12.1.2. Currently, Cydia is not supported for A12 devices and there is no hint about Cydia A12 update from Saurik. Therefore Sileo is the only solution for A12 devices.
  • Chimera Jailbreak does not affect any user files. Therefore Chimera is safer, and more speed than Uncover and Rootless Jailbreak. Also, It does waste your battery as the previous Jailbreaking methods.
  • Chimera is Crash free Jailbreak. It’s fewer bugs when we compare with previous iOS 12 Jailbreak such as Uncover & Rootless.
  • It’s 100% free forever
