It was only a few days ago that the hacker and unc0ver led
developer Pwn20wnd fell
29 th beta of unc0ver v3.0.0 pre-release with
full-featured Cydia and Cydia Substrate support for A8X-A11 devices running iOS
12.0-12.1.2. But the release left many devices, especially of A7-A8 and A12
varieties, unsupported for further notice.
Fortunately, A7-A8 device users can now rest assured that
Pwn20wnd is working to support these phones. The hacker seems to have changed his Twitter name over
weekend to "Pwn20wnd is preparing 4K support for unc0ver," an indication that more
Unsupported handsets are about to be supported:
At this time, there is no ETA for when full-featured 4K device support can come, given how quickly Pwn20wnd managed to build the iOS 12 jailbreak after all the puzzles became available, we can only Wonder that it can be a few days.
Obviously, A12 devices such as the iPhone XR, XS and XS Max are still not supported, and the name change does not mention these devices. Pwn20wnd said that A12 device support would come to an end, but from what we can gather from the current circumstances, 4K support is the primary focus at this time, and the A12 support can follow shortly thereafter.
On a side label, unc0ver v3.0.0 pre-release is still very much a beta, and while it may be tempting to jailbreak your iOS 12 devices right this other, we strongly recommend waiting for the official release to prevent that any bugs manifest while enjoying your jailbreak.
It is worth noting that the latest publication of
unc0ver jailbreak tool is v2.2.6 with support for iOS 11.0-11.4 beta 4 – unc0ver
v3.0.0 pre-release is the only iteration that supports iOS 11.4-11.4.1. Both
versions of unc0ver jailbreak tool can be retrieved from Pwn20wnd s
Official GitHub Deposit .
If you are not already in a jailbreakable version of iOS 12, please note that iOS 12.1.1 beta 3 is still signed, which means you can still downgrade to it via iTunes . You can use IPSW.me to check the signing status of a firmware version before attempting downgrading through iTunes.
