There are lot of games and apps like SnapChat that checks your iDevice for jailbreak. If the jailbreak is detected, the app will not function for you. This is especially obnoxious when it is your banking app or an app you need for work that locks you out. Thanks to the xCon Cydia tweak, which will help you bypass the jailbreak detection.
Developed by a known Cydia developer, xCon Cydia tweak is solution for those users who want to use apps like SnapChat, and other games on their jailbroken iPhones and iPads.
xCon was originally intended to be open-source, but the developers of it decided to close it to prevent Apple Store developers from working around xCon’s hooks.
Since iOS 12 jailbreak was released recently in the form of Chimera tool, lot of users have already jailbroken their iDevice, for the purpose of customization. In this scenario, it will be very hard if you have to sacrifice use of SnapChat for jailbreak. This is the problem solved by xCon Cydia tweak.
How to Install xCon for iOS 12 – 12.1.2 to Bypass Chimera Jailbreak
Recently, xCon Cydia tweak has been updated to support iOS 12, iOS 12.1.2 and iOS 12.2 Chimera Jailbreak. If you want to install xCon Cydia tweak, follow these steps:
- Launch Cydia on your jailbroken iPhone or iPad.
- Add BigBoss repo to Cydia.
- Search for “xCon” inside Cydia.
- Proceed with installation.
Once installation of xCon is completed, you will be able to run the apps that prevents usage on jailbroken iDevice, like normal.
Please note that xCon for iOS 12 might have some bugs, as it is just updated. So if you encounter error when using it, just restart your iPhone or iPad running on iOS 12 or iOS 12.1.2 and re-jailbreak it using Chimera.
If xCon isn’t working, you can try LibertyLite, No Sub, Libertas, TSProtector (though users disagree whether or not these will work for iOS 12/13 (Reddit says yes)).
