Why is Chimera so special?
* Chimera supports for 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 partially support for A12 devices.
* Chimera is installed Sileo automatically after the Jailbreaking process. You cannot install Cydia from Cimera.Sileo is the Jailbreak app manager for latest iOS versions and latest device models such as A12. Currently,Cydia not supported for A12 devices and there is no any hint about Cydia A12 update from Saurik.Therefore Sileo is the only solution for A12 devices.
* Chimera Jailbreak doesn't affect for any user files. Therefore Chimera more safe, 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 less bugs when we compare with previous iOS 12 Jailbreak such as Uncover & Rootless.
* It's 100% free forever
Why Selio? No Cydia
Sileo is a new modern package manager. You can install & manage packages easier with Sileo. Also, it is a development of CoolStar and the Electra team. All of them are active members in Jailbreak community.
They introduced Sileo because Saurik does not update Cydia continuously. He took a long time to update against jailbreak release too. As well If there is an Unc0ver Jailbreak for iOS 12 & higher Jailbreak, still Cydia substrate does not added support for A12 devices. It seems Cydia is no longer updated by Saurik.
Therefore Sileo is better than Cydia for latest iOS versions & device models. It will be updated simultaneously with every Chimera / Electra and the other Jailbreak updates.
Chimera for Jailbreak iOS 12 - iOS 12.1.2
Chimera Jailbreak now available to download. It has both Online Jailbreak method as well as PC required method. Follow the given below guides.
Unfortunately, Chimera Jailbreak is not compatible with iOS 12.1.3, iOS 12.1.4, iOS 12.2 and iOS 12.3. In this section, we are discussing about alternative methods for Chimera for latest iOS users.
Currently, there are no great solutions for iOS 12.1.3, iOS 12.1.4. Therefore we recommend to upgrade these version to iOS 12.2 or iOS 12.3.
You cannot downgrade these versions to iOS 12.1.2 or below.
Hexxa Jailbreak for iOS 12.2
Hexxa is not a semi-untethered Jailbreak as Chimera. It is a Jailbreak repo extractor. It doesn't Jailbreak your iOS device but you can install Sileo and popular jailbreak features using Hexxa. Hexxa is also supported for latest device models such as iPhone XS, XS Max, XR and latest iPads.
As the Hexxa, Bregxi also a Jailbreak repo extractor which is only compatible for iOS 12.3 version. It doesn’t matter, it doesn’t support Chimera jailbreak for iOS 12.3 version. Because Bregxi installs Sileo for iOS 12.3 devices.
Bregxi also supports for A12 devices.
Bregxi was released very recently. (A few days before the Chimera)
