- Not all iPhone or iPad running the given firmware is compatible.
- The h3lix jailbreak will only work with 32-bit devices.
The creator of futurerestore and tsschecker just gave us one of the best early Christmas presents ever.
Take a look below to see if H3lix jailbreak can be run your device.
- iPod touch 5
- iPhone 4s
- iPhone 5
- iPhone 5c
- iPad mini 1
- iPad 2
- iPad 3
- iPad 4
If you attempt to use this jailbreak on a 64-bit device, it will not work.
Where to Download H3lix
The H3lix jailbreak comes in the form of IPA, just like the past releases (Phoenix, Yalu, and Saigon). You can download the latest version of the jailbreak from its developer site.
Prepare for Jailbreak
- Download the H3lix jailbreak file from the link above.
- You will also need a copy of Cydia Impactor. Grab it from here.
- Connect your iPhone or iPad to the computer.
- Drag and drop h3lix-RC.ipa into Impactor’s first field.
- The utility will ask for your Apple ID and password. Enter them.
- When done, go to the Settings app on your iOS device, go to Settings > General > Device Management.
- Locate the email address used in Step 5 and tap Trust for the selected profile.
Now that you have successfully installed the H3lix jailbreak onto your iPhone or iPad, it’s time to initiate the jailbreak process. This is mostly done automatically by the app.
From your home screen, tap to open the H3lix app. To begin the jailbreak, tap the yellow jailbreak button.
When done, H3lix will install Cydia on your iOS device.
I’m sure you don’t need any more guidelines after this. What I would do is open Cydia for the first time and let the app reload its data and packages. Then, install some cool tweaks mentioned in this post.
Help! Cydia Impactor is showing Installation Error
Don’t worry about this section if you already got the H3lix jailbreak app installed on your iPhone.
This part is dedicated to users who failed to sideload the jailbreak using their computer. More specifically, Cydia Impactor is throwing them a popup that shows an error of lockdown or installation.cpp.
If you see anything weird when using Cydia Impactor, please take a look at this article. In short, use the Revoke Certificates option under the Xcode setting.
