Chimera jailbreak v1.5.0b1 has been released. This version supported devices running on iOS 12 - 12.4.

This version released with the bug fixes of pervious version 1.4.0.

Here is the note by CoolStar on Reddit:

From Coolstar:

This IPA does not contain migration currently, so existing users will still have the chimera bootstrap and hybrid libhooker.
However, new users (or users who perform a rootfs restore) will get the Procursus bootstrap and full libhooker.
Yes, you read that right. Procursus/libhooker Chimera has landed.
This also includes several fixes that have been backported from the Odyssey jailbreak.

Note with Chimera, the device compatibility is as follows
A7 -> A11: iOS 12.0 - 12.4 A12: iOS 12.0 - 12.1.2
iOS 12.1.3+ is not supported on A12 with Chimera iOS 12.4.1+ is not currently supported on Chimera
iOS 13 users should continue using Odyssey
Also A12 users still running iOS 12.1.3 -> 12.4.1, Chimera is never coming to your device. It'd literally be easier to backport Odyssey to your device rather than try to port Chimera

Features of Chimera Jailbreak

1. Supports A12 devices

Chimera Jailbreak supports A12 devices, including iPhone Xs, iPhone Xr and newest iPdas. This was something waited for so long and was longed by many people. There were lots of talks about iOS 12 jailbreak with A12 support as it was one of the hardest tasks. After very few hints surprisingly and as always Team Elcetra with the fullest support by CoolStar (@coolstarorg) as the lead developer, has introduced this A12 support jailbreak for the public.

2. Stable

Chimera developers ensure that there is no battery drain, freezing or crashing. This means the device won't get stucked or the battery won't drain drastically as we have experienced before in some jailbreaks. This would be an ease for the Chimera jailbreakers as well as developers.

3. Support for Sileo

Chimera comes with the pack of the Sileo package manager, which was established as a, replacement of Cydia. This comes as a default as Sileo is a product of the Electra team and Coolstar. Sileo gets more stable with the launch of Chimera. Sileo is having it's feature updates frequently. There is a Sileo upgdare helper utility for those are having troubles with upgrading to Sileo from Cydia on iOS 11. Sileo team is announing that this will be the last time an upgrade helper will solve these kinds of issues and Sileo team further ensures that users who are using a recent Sileo beta on iOS 11 should be able to upgrade with no problem. So it doesn't matter you are in iOS 11 or iOS 12 you are totally fine with Sileo. If you really want to know how Sileo works before do the jailbreak please feel free to install our Sileo demo from TaigOne. It will give you the feeling of Sileo and lot more.
