Ramiel tether booting app for checkm8 devices


What can you do when you forget to charge your iPhone when it was jailbroken with Palera1n or any other tethered jailbreak, and it becomes a brick. You have to download and use a tool like the Ramiel app, the tether booting tool for checkm8 devices.

What is Ramiel app?

Ramiel app is a tether booting tool for checkm8 devices, allowing you to boot your iPhone or iPad to iOS. The tool supports booting iOS 7 – iOS 15, along with support for booting dualbooted devices into 2nd OS through Divise app. Ramiel was released for macOS only.

Palera1n is the first working jailbreak for iOS 15 – iOS 15.7.1 for checkm8 compatible devices. By default, it's a tethered jailbreak meaning that every time when you will restart the device, it's required to use a computer to boot into iOS. Ramiel app helps with the boot process.

This is not only a tether booting tool. Ramiel app offers more features including an SHSH dumper via an SSH ramdisk, the ability to apply kernel patches for AMFI and/or AMSD/ASBS, support for custom bootlogos, an APNonce (generator) setter, and many more useful features.

Ramiel app is also useful for the Divise tweak when you run two iOS systems on one device, or make a tethered downgrade on checkm8 compatible devices. Tethered means that the 2nd system will not boot without using a computer. With Ramiel you can again boot your iDevice.

It uses some third party components such as img4lib, img4tool, Kairos, libirecovery, Fugu, ibootim, iPwnder32, Eclipsa, A11 ipwndfu patches, AMFI kernel patching compare script, Kernel64Patcher, AppleMesaSEPDriver Patches, and AppleMesaSEPDriver Patch.

Matthew Pierson released Ramiel as a completely open source project, with all files listed through GitHub Repository. Feel free to create pull requests to fix bugs or add features. Anything lower than macOS 10.13 is not supported. Ramiel is also currently broken on M1 macs.

Using the Ramiel app is straightforward. After installing it on your Mac, the only issue you can find is getting your device in DFU mode. To make this process as easiy as possible, I created a guide on how to enter DFU mode on iPhone with step by steps instructions.

  1. Navigate to the releases page and download the latest build of Ramiel.
  2. Open the .dmg and move to /Applications.
  3. Open from /Applications.
  4. Allow Ramiel to download required tools.
  5. Connect a checkm8-compatible device in DFU mode.
