ios 12 jailbreak with Chimera, Electra, or unc0ver?

So you’re ready to jailbreak and you have an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch running iOS 11.0-12.2, which tool do you choose? Let’s discuss a few important aspects to help you decide.

Software and hardware support for Jailbreak

The Electra jailbreak, perhaps unsurprisingly developed by the CoolStar-led Electra Team, supports all iOS 11.0-11.4.1 devices. Electra can also jailbreak the Apple TV on the equivalent tvOS firmware versions.

The Chimera jailbreak, which was also developed by the Electra Team, supports all iOS 12.0-12.1.2 devices. Chimera can also jailbreak the Apple TV on tvOS 12.0-12.1.1.

The unc0ver jailbreak was developed by Pwn20wnd with the help of Sam Bingner, and it supports most iOS 11.0-12.1.2 devices. The lone exception to this statement is that A12(X) devices are only ‘partially’ supported, which means SSH must be used instead of a full-fledged package manager with tweak injection. The Apple TV is not supported by unc0ver.

Cydia or Sileo? what to choose ?

The Electra jailbreak installs Sileo by default, but you can still install Cydia manuallyalongside Sileo if you wanted to. This would allow you to have dual package managers on your jailbreak.

The Chimera jailbreak exclusively supports Sileo, a decision made by the Electra Team since it aims to move forward with the new age of software.

The unc0ver jailbreak currently exclusively supports the tried and true Cydia, but LaughingQuoll and other developers are currently working on a version of Sileo that will be compatible with other jailbreaks, including unc0ver. There’s no ETA for that release at the time of this writing.

The Electra jailbreak takes advantage of Substitute for tweak injection since Cydia Substrate isn’t open source and can’t be adapted to Electra.

The Chimera jailbreak uses Substitute for tweak injection for similar reasons as Electra.

The unc0ver jailbreak uses Cydia Substrate for tweak injection since it was the only jailbreak to receive Saurik’s endorsement. On the other hand, A12(X) devices will soon get support for Substitute since it might not be possible to get Cydia Substrate working on those devices. There’s no ETA for this newfangled substitute support at the time of this writing.

 we have tested the Electra jailbreak for a long time before unc0ver was ever released and when Pwn20wnd was still a member of the Electra Team, and I never had any issues with it. Several updates later, I can only assume that the jailbreak has become more stable since then. we have a device running the Chimera jailbreak right now, and I haven’t experienced a single crash or issue with it since the release. and also we have a device running the unc0ver jailbreak right now, and I haven’t experienced a single crash or issue with it since the v3.0.0 betas first debuted.
