  3. Checkra1n should now be open. If your iPhone is not connected to your Mac, the Start button will be greyed out. Connect your iPhone to begin
  4. If you receive a warning that the iPhone is not compatible, go to Options -> and select Allow untested iOS versions

  6. Follow the Interactive Wizard
    Screenshot of the Interactive Wizard - Note the steps you will be shown in the Wizard will vary depending on your device
  7. If you receive an error during Jailbreaking, this is most likely because the checkra1n tool has not launched official support for your iOS version yet. To resolve the issue you will need to uninstall Checkra1n, and re-install using the Checkra1n beta version
The Jailbreak should now be complete! You can confirm this by opening the iPhone and looking for the Cydia and Checkra1n application.

Your phone is now ready to install FlexiSPY, and you can find instructions for this inside your online account.
