Unc0ver Jailbreak iOS 12 – iOS 11: How To, Download, and News

Unc0ver Jailbreak iOS 12 - iOS 11

Unc0ver jailbreak is the first public iOS 12 – iOS 12.1.2 jailbreak. Released almost six months after the first public jailbreak for iOS 12.

The Unc0ver jailbreak has been developed by the @pwn20wnd team. It supports almost all iPhones and iPads in the market running iOS 12 – iOS 12.1.2. Below is everything you need to know about it.

Unc0ver is a semi-tethered jailbreak, which is similar to an untethered jailbreak, it gives the ability to reboot your iOS device on its own. On each boot, the iOS device startup sequence is unmodified and it boots into its original, non-jailbroken state. However, instead of needing to use a tool from a computer to re-jailbreak the iOS device again, like a tethered or semi-tethered cases, the user can re-jailbreak their device with the help of an app running on the iOS device such as the Electra app in case of Electra jailbreak.

iOS 12 Exploits and Unc0ver Jailbreak

In the months following iOS 12 release, we saw many Chinese developers show off iOS 12 exploits that could be used for a jailbreak. However, none of them released the exploit to the public. Then in January this year, we saw a number of iOS 12 – iOS 12.1.2 exploits being posted by Project Zero team members including Ian Bar and other Chinese security researchers.

The @pwn20wnd team took one such exploit and worked on it to create the first public iOS 12 – iOS 12.1.2 jailbreak. Saurik also worked behind the scenes to add Cydia support for iOS 12 and Unc0ver jailbreak.

Unc0ver jailbreak supports iOS 11 all the way up to iOS 12.1.2.

It does not support iOS 12.1.3, iOS 12.1.4 and iOS 12.2 currently.

While an iOS 12 – iOS 12.1.2 jailbreak is already in the works for iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, iPhone XR, 11-inch iPad Pro (2018), and 12.9-inch iPad Pro, unc0ver jailbreak developer @pwn20wnd believes that it will be the last jailbreakable version of iOS for these devices.
