This includes a fix for the popular snapshot creation bug, adding a compatibility layer for other jailbreak hacks, hotfix for snapshot mounting issues, and more. The latest revision also fixes a bug with the trust cache injection.
To make it easier to track the changes, Pwn20wnd has updated the version number of unc0ver to 2.0.1.

For the unknown, unc0ver is a semi-tethered jailbreak for iOS 11.0 – iOS 11.4 beta 3. A semi-tethered jailbreak needs to be run every time after one reboots their iPhone or iPad.
If you are already using unc0ver, you can simply update your existing installation to enjoy the bug fixes and new features. The first version of unc0ver was released back in October this year.
Since then, Pwn20wnd has continued to update it, with unc0ver 2.0 going into beta testing late last month. It comes with a number of new features including Cydia Substrate support, an updated bootstrap, a dedicated button for restarting Springboard, a toggle to quickly re-install Cydia and OpenSSH, the ability to update jailbreak components OTA, faster system reloading, improved battery life, and more. It also comes with a new version of Cydia which is better optimized for iOS 11.
Given how quickly Pwn20wnd is working on resolving various bugs with unc0ver 2.0.0, the final release of the semi-tethered jailbreak seems imminent. And if you are of the impatient type, you can download unc0ver 2.0 from its GitHub repository.
