Unc0ver Update Adds Partial Support for A12 Bionic Devices Like iPhone XS, iPhone XR Running iOS 12.4

Unc0ver iOS 12.4 Jailbreak

The @pwn20wnd team is out with another update for Unc0ver which adds partial support for A12/12X Bionic devices running iOS 12.4. The release comes a day after Unc0ver was first updated to add support for jailbreaking iOS 12.4.

Don’t get your hopes up thinking that you would be able to jailbreak your iPhone XS, iPhone XR, iPhone XS Max, or the 2018 iPad Pro running iOS 12.4 using the latest Unc0ver release. This release only builds the foundation for these devices and there’s still a lot of work left that needs to be done before one could jailbreak their A12/X Bionic device running iOS 12.4.

Below is the change-log of Unc0ver 3.5.3:

  • Add WIP partial support for A12-A12X devices on iOS 12.1.3, 12.1.4, 12.2 and 12.4 with support for setting HSP#4 as TFP0, setting kernel_task info, exporting kernel_task port, dumping APTicket, logging KASLR shift and ECID and disabling auto updates

There’s still a need for a PAC bypass and Substitute on A12 Bionic before we can see a successful iOS 12.4 jailbreak for newer iPhones and iPads. In a nutshell, there’s still a lot of work left that needs to be done before we can see an iOS 12.4 jailbreak for iPhone XS/XR with tweak injection.

If you own an older iPhone or iPad and have already jailbroken it using Unc0ver, you should delete the app from your device before installing this one. After that, you can re-run the jailbreaking process to update to the latest build.

Some users have reported issues jailbreaking their iPhone 8, iPhone 7, and iPhone SE using Unc0ver 3.5.3. If you are also facing the same issue, you can try using an older version of the app to jailbreak your iPhone/iPad running iOS 12.4.

Here is a guide to jailbreak your iPhone/iPad running iOS 12.4 using Unc0ver.
