Odysseyra1n Tutorial - Jailbreak iOS 12/13/14 with Checkra1n and Install Sileo - macOS/ Linux guide

In this post, I am going to tell you how to install odysseyra1n on your iPhones or iPads compatible with checkra1n.We are all aware of Checkra1n and it's power. With it's semi-tethered nature it can be a headache sometimes but it is the reason why it is so stable. Checkra1n comes with Cydia installed as the default package manager. Checkra1n team has already announced that with time, they will also add other package managers like Sileo, Zebra and Installer 5 to be installed directly from the Checkra1n app just like Cydia. But checkra1n has also taught us that everything is possible with it!

Odyssera1n is a great tool developed mainly by CoolStar (Developer of Chimera/ Odyssey), which let's you install Sileo as a default package manager while being jailbroken with checkra1n. Libhooker, a substrate/substitute alternative built from the ground up by Coolstar with speed and stability in mind and Procursus, an open source and modern bootstrap that aims to provide a large set of consistently up-to-date tools.


So, first of all to start with the installation of Odysseyra1n, you will need to be in a complete non-jailbroken mode, means if you are jailbroken with unc0ver, odyssey or even with checkra1n, you will have to restore rootFS! You can remove Odyssey and Unc0ver jailbreak by going in the settings of the respective jailbreaks while in case of checkra1n you will need to be in jailbroken state in order to access the checkra1n application and restore system (restore rootFS).

Once you are done with removing the jailbreak from your device, connect your device to the MacBook/Mac/Linuc PC and then launch checkra1n and jailbreak your device. But once your device turns on in jailbroken mode, you don't have to open Checkra1n and install cydia. Let me write it clearly:


Moving forward in the video, you will need to keep your device connected to the MacBook/Linux system.

Now, if you are on macOS then you will need to install homebrew first.

To install homebrew, open terminal. Click on the GO button located in the top bar and then click on utilities. Here you will find Terminal app. Open it. Now run these commands:
  • To install homebrew:
/bin/bash -c "$(curl -fsSL”
  • Now, to install iproxy, run this command:
brew install usbmuxd

And if you are on Linux, then open terminal. You can right click and choose from the list to open terminal. Now, run the following command to install iproxy for Linux.
sudo apt install libusbmuxd-tools

Now, we have successfully installed iproxy on our MacBook/Linux system.

Now, paste the following command in the terminal application to launch the script and install Sileo on the iPhone.

/bin/bash -c "$(curl -fsSL"

Now, terminal might ask you to enter the root password several times, you will have to enter alpine which is the default root password if you have never changed it.

Once it is finished, you will see Sileo on your homescreen.
Now, you can disconnect your device from the MacBook/Linux System.

Now, you can do 2 things.
  • Open Sileo, do all the updates. Then restart your device manually and then rejailbreak.
  • Install NewTerm or any terminal tweak from Sileo, then run these commands: 
  1. su
  2. alpine (you have to enter the root password here)
  3. /etc/rc.d/libhooker (To start libhooker)
  4. sbreload (To restart springboard)

Once you are done with all these steps, you can start using your favourite Sileo tweaks!
