Finally, after a long wait, we have got an iOS 12 – iOS 12.5.x jailbreak, iOS 12.1.3, iOS 12.3. iOS 12.5.x is supported on A7 – A11 devices only, for now. The Electra team has released iOS 12 – iOS 12.5.x Chimera Jailbreak with Sileo support and tweaks. This has been rebuilt from the ground, a totally new jailbreak made by the Electra team; let’s see in this article how to install chimera jailbreak with pc and download chimera jailbreak no pc.
Keep in mind that according to CoolStar, who is the main chimera jailbreak developer, there won’t be any Chimera jailbreak for iOS 14; as of now, it’s supported for iOS 12 – iOS 12.5.x mainly supported for old devices. The latest chimera version that was released uses the libhooker internally instead of a substitute to applying the patches, but the jailbreak itself runs on libhooker.
The reason there won’t be any Chimera iOS 13 jailbreak, below tweet is the answer to that.
Anemone 3 also is likely not getting a port for iOS 13 either.
Since Chimera13 and libhooker are both not happening, it doesn't really have anywhere to run on iOS 13

How To Chimera Jailbreak Download iOS 12.5.x with Altstore
Download the chimera jailbreak IPA file from this link.
Sign any IPAs files through Cydia Impactor Alternative.
We will sideload the chimera jailbreak IPA file; we need to install Altstore on our device.
If you do not have the Altstore installed on your device, here is the step-by-step tutorial on installing altstore on your iPhone.
Go here and install the Altstore first and come back here; alt store installation steps would make this content fluffy, install it from our detailed guide, and follow step 3 below.
Open alt store, go to my apps section, tap on the + icon at the top and select the downloaded chimera jailbreak IPA file from there.
Keep in mind that your device must be connected to your computer this time, and your device and computer must be connected to the same wifi network as well. The chimera jailbreak will be sideloaded, and you’ll find it on your device’s home screen.
Open the installed chimera jailbreak app.
It looks pretty nice, and colors change themselves, which makes it more awesome; there is a button below that tells you about your iPhone compatibility, and you can also disable the tweaks if you’re having problems. There is also an option to Nonce, which is useful if you have the saved shsh blobs.
After pressing jailbreak, it may ask you to reboot; when the phone is on, you need to run Chimera jailbreak immediately after that.
Now when you hit the jailbreak button, after the process runs for a few seconds or a minute, it’ll ask you to reboot the device to finish the jailbreaking process.
NOTE: If you’re not satisfied with iOS Chimera Jailbreak to Follow this to Unjailbreak Chimera Jailbreak,
Hit the OK button to reboot; after that, open the chimera to complete the process. The process is taking 2/3 attempts due to sometimes crashing or requiring reboots. In some cases, you might see a bug that results in a completely black screen. Bugs are there because it’s the initial release and will be fixed as the Electra team pushes new updates.

Sileo looks pretty nice and modern, most of the repos are compatible with Sileo, but some of the older ones do not meet Sileo’s criteria. Those might not work with the Sileo, so be aware when you add repos into Sileo.

Installing Tweaks in Sileo, iOS 12.5 Chimera Jailbreak

Sileo works fine and seems faster than the Cydia; I already have posted about the Sileo here; you can read about it more.
How To Update Chimera Jailbreak iOS 12 – iOS 12.5.x with SIRI
Do you know guys you can update your Chimera Jailbreak iOS 12.5 using the SIRI shortcut? If you don’t, I am telling you how you can do it in a step-by-step manner using ReProvision in Sileo. So you don’t have to do a manual process whenever you see an update after opening Chimera Jailbreak.
Open Sileo application, go-to sources, and add this repo; after adding it refresh the sources list.
Go inside of newly added repository, then go to all categories -> ReProvision -> press Get button -> press confirm to install it.
Open ReProvision app and sign in using your Apple Id after clicking confirm at the top.
You can use this in your two Apple devices using your Apple Id. If you see to remove a certificate in there, remove one.
You can use this to resign any side-loaded applications on your devices.
After that, it’ll be added to your Siri shortcuts library.
Tap on Three Dots on it, then tap on the Settings icon; you can rename it as well.
Then we’ll “add it to Siri,” give it a sentence to run this shortcut. You can speak “Update Chimera” for easiness; after that, press the done button. You can also put this on your home screen.
Now, everything is done, except for the updating process.
Open up the Siri and speak the command sentence you gave to it. The process will be done in front of you; internally, it fetches the update from the official CoolStar website so you’ll get the latest version every time. Don’t worry if on screen it shows you the previous version that will be fixed later.
How To Fix Chimera Jailbreak Errors, Problems With Sileo And Other Issues
Here, I am telling you many fixes to the problem when you install chimera jailbreak. But this might not be a solution to every problem; keep that in mind. This will work for installing fresh iOS 12.5 jailbreak or updating your jailbreak as well.
For example, you can see an error that Sileo isn’t starting or is not appearing after you have jailbroken your device. Or any other stuff like few tweaks that don’t appear after you install.
Let me tell those who try to fix Chimera jailbreak by just reinstalling it. This will not work for anything you are trying to fix because when you installed it previously, your file system already contains those files for the jailbreak. When you uninstall the application, it doesn’t remove the files from your file system.
To fix or remove those files, you need to restore your file system. Keep in mind you’ll lose all your installed tweaks, not your personal photos and contacts.
How To Fix Chimera Jailbreak & Sileo Errors Issues
Press the button at the bottom of the screen and then press Restore RootFS.
Press OK on the popup stating Root Filesystem Restore; after that, Chimera will show you “Restore Filesystem” instead of Jailbreak.
This will remove everything related to chimera jailbreak and will fix not all, but many of the problems the corrupted files are creating to work it properly.
Because this creates binary files in the file system as well so the only reinstallation of the application will definitely not work for you. Restore RootFS is necessary, this will not affect your personal files or data.
Now press Restore Filesystem; after the process is done, try to re-jailbreak using chimera jailbreak.
The problem I had was related to Sileo; it was not opening after I jailbreak, so I went through the above-mentioned steps and re-jailbreak; it was opened after that. So many other issues or problems can be fixed by following this method as well.
