First, you need to download and install iCloud and iTunes from the Apple website; if you already have these on your computer from the Microsoft store, uninstall both and download iTunes and iCloud from the Apple website.

Step 4. Turn off virus and threat protection
Once the checkra1n windows iremovalra1n is downloaded to your PC, it’s a zip file; you need to extract it. Before you extract the zip file, turn off the virus and threat protection in your computer because Windows takes it as malware.
To turn off that, go to the search icon, type threat protection, and open the virus and threat protection settings. Click on manage settings and turn off the real-time protection.
You can also add this iremovalra1n folder in the exclusions section, so you don’t have to turn off the threat protection every time you are installing checkra1n windows with iremovalra1n.
Step 5. Extract and open iremovalra1n tool
After turning off, now extract the iremovalra1n zip file and go inside the extracted folder.
Double click on the iremoval pro setup file, It will take a couple of settings to turn on, and then you’ll find the jailbreak option on the left side.

Before you click on the jailbreak button, this is a new checkra1n windows tool, and you might find bugs in it while installing checkra1n jailbreak with the iremovalra1n tool.
It’ll ask you to install some drivers once or multiple times depending on how many are missing, then you need to install those missing drivers and repeat the process.
Let’s go further into the process of jailbreaking the iPhone with checkra1n windows iremovalra1n.
Step 7. Attach iPhone and install missing drivers
Now attach your device to the computer, hit the trust button on your device, and click on the jailbreak button. At this stage, if you haven’t restarted your device after installing iTunes and iCloud, it’ll ask you to restart your PC.
And if you have missing drivers on your Windows PC, it’ll show you that error. I am being shown only the missing drivers error because I did restart my PC after the tools installations.
To install the missing drivers, click on the yes button on the error window, and it will start installing it. Make sure your PC is connected to the internet.
This missing driver would popup other errors as well on your computer’s screen; once the drivers are installed, these will be gone, and some will stay, but those are just bugs.
Once the missing drivers are installed, it’ll ask you to restart your computer; I know it’s a bit annoying, but not more than the process to checkra1n windows jailbreak with bootable USD. So restart your computer and come back.
Step 8. Jailbreak iPhone with checkra1n iremovalra1n windows tool
After the restart, open the tool again and click on jailbreak. If all the drivers are not installed, you’ll be asked to install missing drivers again, so do that, restart your device, and open the iremoval checkra1n windows tool.

Step 9. Allow untested version and skip BPR check
In the options, click on the allow untested iOS versions option if your version is above 14. And also, enable the skip BPR check option if you’re on iPhone 8 and above devices. Before enabling this option, turn off any passcode, touch id or faceid on your device, and keep in mind that after jailbreaking by skipping the BPR check, you won’t be able to set a passcode, etc.
But there is another way of setting a passcode. I already have published a tutorial on that; here is how to set the passcode on checkra1n jailbreak iPhone. This is how checkra1n works for iPhone 8 and above devices.
Once you see your device is connected message, any error you see, just skip that; these are just bugs.
Now to jailbreak with checkra1n iremovalra1n for windows, click on the start button, and the process to jailbreak with checkra1n is the same as before.
Step 10. Continue the process to jailbreak checkra1n windows with iremovalra1n
Click on the Next button; you’ll see things happening on your device. It will be entered into the recovery mode first. After that, you need to enter it into the DFU mode. You’ll see the instructions on the checkra1n windows screen to enter into DFU mode. These might be different based on your device.
Click on the start button, press and hold the power and volume down button, release the power button after four seconds, and keep holding the volume down button for more than 7-8 seconds. Once the message turns blue, release the volume down button as well.
A few seconds later, it’ll start jailbreaking the device, again, as it’s a new tool and got some bugs that lead to jailbreak failure.
Step 11. Fix the checkra1n windows jailbreak is stuck
If you feel things are stuck for a longer period on the exploiting device, you need to force restart your device and jailbreak your device again.
On the iPhone 8, 8 Plus, and iPhone X, to force restart these, press and release volume up, then press and release the volume down button, then press and hold the power button. You’ll see the Apple logo once its force is restarted.
If you got iPhone 7 and 7 plus, press and held both the power and volume down buttons simultaneously until you see the Apple logo.
Press and home the power and home button to force restart for any other devices.
Once the device is restarted after the checkra1n windows iremovalra1n process is stuck, restart your computer.
After the PC and device restart, you need to repeat the checkra1n iremovalra1n process, as I just showed you. On the second attempt, probably you won’t face any stuck issues, but if you do, you need to restart the devices and repeat the process to jailbreak with the checkra1n windows tool.
I am not repeating the stuff, so here you can see that I got checkra1n installed on my device after another attempt.
Open the checkra1n app, install Cydia on your device, and enjoy the jailbreak after installing tweaks.
