The new iOS 12 – iOS 12.1.2 Chimera A12 Jailbreak is, as the majority of you know, available for download (here). However due to the delivery method of IPAs, the Chimera jailbreak A12 app requires a computer to properly sideload it. In today’s post-PC world, an overwhelming number of our readers are seeking a “no computer” A12 jailbreak iOS 12 method. Thankfully, you can jailbreak A12 on iOS 12 – 12.1.2 without a computer (Mac or PC)!
However while the answer to a no computer A12 jailbreak is “yes”, there are several caveats that we must outline. First and foremost, a computer is only needed due to how iOS apps are installed (i.e. traditionally strictly through the App Store). To combat this problem, iOS jailbreak developers employe the use of Apple’s self-signing app service. This method allows jailbreakers to run the app on their devices without being a developer (which is the only other app distribution method outside the App Store). Enter, sideloading and developer enterprise accounts.
Install Apps without self-signing or App Store
Aside from either self-signing apps with a regular Apple ID (detailed above) or purchasing a $99/year developer account yourself, one loophole exists. Apple’s developer enterprise program allows for apps to be installed without the App Store or a computer! These accounts are typically meant for Apple’s enterprise (business) developer partners, including the likes of most Fortune 500 companies.
This program is worth mentioning because it’s how individuals can install Chimera without the need of self-signing. But this is where things get complicated though. Due to the fact that sites and services are basically re-distributing the application, it’s technically possible for their to bundle their own code with the app! This is where iOS malware becomes a theoretical possibility.
No Computer Chimera Jailbreak: is it SAFE?!
While we can’t say with 100 percent certainly because we don’t have the source code for the Chimera app, Coolstar (the main developer behind the Chimera jailbreak) has acknowledge its distribution through such known channels. Said channels are the very source we’re going to use today to install the A12 jailbreak without a computer. Having said that, proceed with caution! If for any reason you feel like avoiding the no computer on-device method, we ALWAYS recommend using the computer method (click for tutorial).
