While jailbreaking iOS 12.4 you might face:-
- iOS device is Restarting but Cydia is not appearing:- This is the first issue which you will face. It is common and usual that when you click on jailbreak button your device start restarting. But Cydia is supposed to appear after the restart. In case Cydia is not appearing then keep on trying about 3-4 times and Cydia will appear and your iOS device will be jailbroken. And in Chimera Jailbreak you will get a new version of Cydia which is “Sileo” and works well like Cydia.
- iOS device turned OFF and not opening. This is a rare case and in such case, you need to connect your iOS device to your computer with a USB cable. And the computer must have iTunes installed in it. Your iOS device will get turned on automatically without the need of any other step.
- It is not a problem but a suggestion to keep a backup of your iOS device’s data in iTunes installed in the computer or on iCloud. Because while jailbreaking it is not sure that your iOS device’s data is safe. I am not telling it will be leaked but it may get erased. So, be aware to keep a backup of your data.
