Unc0ver Jailbreak for iOS 12 – iOS 12.1.2 Updated with Fix for ‘Reload System Daemons’ Failure

Posted by Rajesh Pandey on Feb 25, 2019 in Hacks, How To, Unc0ver Jailbreak


The @pwn20wnd team today released the beta 34 of unc0ver 3.0.0 that fixes a number of issues with the iOS 12 – iOS 12.1.2 jailbreak tool and makes the entire jailbreaking process more reliable. More importantly, the release fixes the dreaded “Reload System Daemons” failure that many users have been reporting.

Many users previously reported that their iPhone went into a respring loop when they enabled the reload system daemons option. The issue has seemingly been fixed in the latest update.

In case your iPhone still ends up in a respring loop, you should try to restore the file system to ensure there’s no conflict with a jailbreak tweak. Going by the initial comments over on Reddit though, it does not look like the fix implemented by the pwn20wnd team is working for everyone.

Below is the full change-log of unc0ver v3.0.0~b34

  • Fix the root cause of the “Reload System Daemons” failures on iOS 12
  • Add an apt lists cache file to ease load on repositories

If you have not already jailbroken your iPhone running iOS 12 – iOS 12.1.2, you can use the latest version of unc0ver to do so. If you are new to the jailbreaking guide, follow our guide on how to jailbreak iOS 12 using Unc0ver to get you started. And once done, check out some of the best jailbreak tweaks that you must try.

If you have already jailbroken your iPhone and everything is working fine then my recommendation would be to stick to your existing setup and not upgrade until there’s a stable release of unc0ver.
