An iOS 14 jailbreak for all devices, including A14, has been released. For A14, this includes the iPhone 12, 12 Pro, 12 Mini, and 12 Pro Max. But as previously stated, this will even work on older devices! We repeat, the iOS 14 jailbreak for A14 – A13 devices is finally available! Best of all, you can jailbreak A14 and A13 on iOS 14.3 with minimal effort.
This means you can now jailbreak A14 and A13 on iOS 14 – 14.3 for the first time! Unfortunately though, iOS 14.4 is not supported; it closes the primary kernel exploit. Sadly if you’re not on a supported firmware, you cannot jailbreak or downgrade until a new utility is released for iOS 14.4+.
In addition, as a prelude, although there will be no computer jailbreaks. The reason is that Apple has modified the developer’s business program which affects its reliability and runtime. This is just more troublesome than it, and there is a time limit. This is a terrible experience, believe us.
Install AltServer to Jailbreak on Windows or Mac
In order to jailbreak using this methods, we must first install unc0ver to our device. To do this, we’re going to use AltServer and AltStore. Thankfully, the process is relatively simple, just a little involved.
Due to differing steps for accomplishing the same net result on both Windows and macOS, you’ll need to follow the first set of steps that corresponds to your computer’s OS. Windows instructions load by default. If you’re on macOS, simply click the “Mac Steps” below to switch operating system instructions.
Step 1: This step is for Windows users only! You must download and install both iTunes and iCloud from Apple’s site. You cannot use the version of iTunes for the Microsoft Store. Links to both iCloud for Windows and the proper iTunes .exe can be found below.
Step 2: Open iCloud for Windows and ensure that it you have at least iCloud Drive and Bookmarks checked within the application.
Note: If you receive any errors trying to install either application, simply launch the “Add or remove programs” settings panel. You can access this panel by typing in “add or remove” to the right of the Start menu. Type “Apple” in the search field in the middle of the page. Click on each result, followed by “Modify” > “Repair” > “Next” for each piece of listed software.
Step 3: Download AltServer from AltStore. Open the .zip and launch the AltInstaller and follow the on-screen prompts to install it. You may also have to allow the application access through your firewall the first time you launch it; again, follow on-screen prompts. After you’ve downloaded and installed everything up to this point, restart your computer.
Step 4: Connect your device to your computer via USB. Launch iTunes and ensure the connection is trusted. If your device isn’t listed and/or you don’t have the ability to backup or restore, you must trust the connection. In this instance, simply follow the on-screen prompts to do so.
Step 5: Click the arrow next to the time in the lower right of your toolbar to expand the running services panel. Click the AltServer logo (it looks like a triangle). Next, hover your mouse over “Install AltStore” and click on your device from the pop-out menu.
Step 6: Input your Apple ID when prompted. This information is neither collected nor stored, it’s merely passed to Apple’s servers for signing purposes.
Note: If you have two-factor authentication on your Apple ID, you must create an app-specific password. You can do so on Apple’s site (click here). Follow the above tutorial for a demo; it’s pretty easy though.

Tap the arrow in the top right to bring up the share sheet. Finally scroll over and tap the option to copy to AltStore.
Step 4: This will redirect you to the AltStore sign-in prompt on your iOS 14 device. Input the same Apple ID you used to sign the AltStore app on your computer. Again, the same thing applies, this information is neither collected nor stored, it’s merely passed to Apple’s servers for signing purposes.
