The @pwn20wnd team took to Twitter to announce that they have successfully managed to get jailbreak tweaks running with Cydia Substrate on iOS 12. That’s a major breakthrough and paves the way for the release of the first public iOS 12 – iOS 12.1.2 jailbreak.

Patiently waiting for unc0ver to add iOS 12 – iOS 12.1.2 jailbreak support? The pwn20wnd team has been steadily working behind the scenes on that and they have even teased Cydia support for iOS 12.
After quite a few weeks of teasing, the @pwn20wnd team has gone ahead and released the first public jailbreak for iOS 12 – iOS 12.1.2 using Unc0ver. While there was rootlessJB before, it lacked Cydia and Substrate support which made it difficult to install tweaks. The latest unc0ver beta has full support for Cydia and Substrate which makes the whole jailbreaking process easier. If you have already jailbroken your iPhone or iPad and are looking for some useful Cydia tweaks, check below.
The pwn20wnd team has released a new beta of unc0ver 3.0 which comes with root filesystem remount for iOS 12. In simple words, that means there’s one less hurdle for developers to cross before they can get a fully working jailbreak for iOS 12.
SSH-based iOS 12.1.2 – iOS 12 Jailbreak RootlessJB 3.1 Released With Ability to Install Cydia Tweaks
Earlier this week, we saw Jake James release rootlessJB, an SSH-based developer oriented iOS 12.1.2 – iOS 12 jailbreak. It was not particularly a useful jailbreak since it did not support tweaks or code injection of any kind. Thanks to rapid development from James though, rootlessJB has now been updated to support Cydia tweaks.
The last few days have been quite eventful for the jailbreak community. We got two iOS 11.4.1 jailbreaks (Electra and Unc0ver), which makes all versions of the iOS 11 software update jailbreakable. Security Researchers and hackers have also released an exploit for iOS 12 – iOS 12.1.2 and developer only iOS 12.1.2 – iOS 12 jailbreak.
Over the last few weeks, quite a few iOS 12 exploits have been detailed raising hopes of a possible iOS 12 jailbreak. Ian Beer of Google’s Project Zero team has now published another new iOS 12 exploit.
Ever since the Electra team released v1.2.0 of their jailbreak for iOS 11 – iOS 11.4.1 based on a new exploit, they have been rolling out regular updates to their tool with improvements. Today, the Electra team has updated their jailbreak tool to version 1.2.7 which fixes a kernel panic on some devices.
Now that an iOS 11.4 – iOS 11.4.1 jailbreak is out from both Electra and unc0ver team, many people who will jailbreak or have jailbroken their iPhone or iPad would be looking for some useful Cydia tweaks. Since iOS 11.4 – iOS 11.4.1 only adds some new features and enhancements and does not deviate from iOS 11.3 in any major way, most Cydia tweaks that worked on iOS 11 – iOS 11.3 are going to work just fine on iOS 11.4 as well.
