How To Install Rootless Jailbreak iOS 12.4.8 – iOS 12
This iOS 12.4.8 jailbreak process requires some patience so gather that some.
- Step 1:
First of all, go to your device’s settings -> WiFi -> tap on i button -> tap on the Configure Proxy -> tap on Automatic -> add this proxy there http://ffapple.com and tap on the Save button. After that turn-off and then turn on the WiFi of your device and connect to your WiFi.

- Step 5:
Now, turn on the airplane mode on your device, because this jailbreak requires restarts, and the chances are Rootlessjailbreak app won’t open after the restart. After airplane mode is enabled, open the Rootless jailbreak application so we can jailbreak iOS 12.4.8.
Remember as mentioned at the start, rootlessjb takes a lot of attempts so it requires your patience. It might take 10-20 attempts to jailbreak your device successfully. The success ratio of Rootless jailbreak is too low.
- Step 6:
Open the application and tap on the jailbreak, once you do that, one of three things will happen. Either the device will restart, or the exploit will fail, or jailbreak iOS 12.4.8 will be done successfully.
If your device restarts, open the Rootless jailbreak app again and try jailbreaking again. In case the app stops working, delete the app and install that again.
If you see the Exploit Failed on the jailbreak button, force restart your device and open the app again.
When you press the jailbreak button, if the numbers go up from 1/12, it means the jailbreak process is started. The exploit’s success rate is too low, so keep patience and try again.
Remember that, if these numbers stuck on 11/12 or 12/12, it means the jailbreak is done so you can quit the rootlessJB app.
Rootless Jailbreak is compatible with iOS 12 to iOS 12.4.8 only, once you install it you’ll be able to jailbreak those versions. If you are on iOS 13 and up, check out the checkra1n jailbreak and unc0ver jailbreak.
