WinRa1n Alternatives

Promotion image of WinRa1n Alternatives article.

As an alternative to WinRa1n, a few iOS jailbreak tools are available for Windows. Although WinRa1n Jailbreak is, in my opinion, the greatest tool accessible for PCs, there is still other software out there. While there are jailbreaks like Checkra1n and Palera1n, none of them have been formally ported to Windows. Let's find the top alternatives to WinRa1n that are compatible with checkm8 devices (iPhone 5 – iPhone X).

1. Palera1n

FRPFILE released a jailbreak tool based on Palera1n designed for Windows PCs. This is a user-friendly WinRa1n replacement that has an interface that is identical to checkra1n. The jailbreak provides a straightforward user interface that guides you through the whole procedure. This is a full-featured jailbreak installing palera1n loader with tweak support.

2. iRemovalRa1n

The company behind the most sophisticated iCloud Bypass software for iPhones, iRemoval PRO Ltd., published iRa1n as the first jailbreak tool for Windows users. It was used to activate the device with signal support by jailbreaking it in rootful mode and gaining access to the file system. Nevertheless, by default, this approach did not enable tweak injection.

3. OpenRa1n

Users may jailbreak the iPhone 5S, iPhone 6S, iPhone SE, iPhone 7, iPhone 8, and iPhone X running iOS 15 and iOS 16 using OpenRa1n, an open-source alternative for WinRa1n. Nevertheless, utilizing this jailbreak necessitates extensive planning, using Python, updating drivers while on the road, etc. This is an excellent resource for learning how to create a jailbreak.

4. RussKovRa1n

RussKovRa1n is another jailbreak based on checkra1n that was designed to exploit the device and allow it to enable full access to the file system for activation. RussKov is known for his tools to activate iPhone devices and bypass iCloud Lock Screens. RussKovRa1n can be used as a solid alternative for WinRa1n Jailbreak on Windows PCs.

5. Palen1x

Palen1x is a small Linux distribution that can be launched from a Live CD or USB dongle on a PC and comes with the palera1n jailbreak preinstalled. You don't need to install Linux on your PC in order to run it from it thanks to this jailbreak solution. It served as Windows users' primary alternative for a very long time until competing projects were made available such as WinRa1n.

6. meowbrek2

Meowbrek2 was the first on-device tool to jailbreak iOS 15 – iOS 15.7.6 for A9–A11. In order to jailbreak devices without a PC, this was the first jailbreak to be made available as an IPA that could be sideloaded on the device on iOS 15. Along with supporting earlier devices ranging from the iPhone 6 to the iPhone X, it also became the primary engine for the Dopamine Jailbreak.

7. Def1nit3lyN0tAJa1lbr3akTool

Def1nit3lyN0tAJa1lbr3akTool is definitely a legit jailbreak app released as an IPA package that can be installed on the target device to execute the jailbreak with tweak injection. It started as a hobby project but was eventually released to the public. It uses the KFD exploit, extending compatibility to arm64 devices operating on iOS 15.7 through iOS 16.6.

8. NekoJB

NekoJB is on the list of WinRa1n alternatives, but the jailbreak developer is a moran. He is using the source code from other open-source jailbreaks pretending that the hard lifting was done by him. I would stay away not only from this jailbreak but all projects the developer is involved in.

9. SkyNet Ultra

The bulk of iCloud Bypass programs for Windows and macOS are released by SkyNet. In response to the demand, they launched SkyNet Ultra Jailbreak, which was intended to unlock devices compatible with CheckM8 and provide full file system access. Additionally, it can run scripts to activate the devices and get beyond Apple's iCloud security.

10. Dopamine

A significant change to the most current version of Dopamine Jailbreak with number 2.0 included compatibility for older A9–A11 devices running iOS 15 and iOS 16. It was published as an IPA package that can be installed from a Windows computer and evolved into the most comprehensive jailbreak tool for iOS 15 and iOS 16. The greatest alternative for WinRa1n is this.
