Renowned hacker and unc0ver lead developer Pwn20wnd
has issued a new revision to the unc0ver v3.0.0 pre-release Friday morning;
beta 28 is now the latest version available for public testing purposes.
In a Tweet shared just
minutes ago by Pwn20wnd, we learn that unc0ver v3.0.0 beta 28 adds provisions
for timstar’s iOS
12-centric v3ntex exploit; on the other hand, the tool only supports the
iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 4 at the time of this writing. Support for more devices
will come later:
The official changelog from Pwn20wnd’s GitHub repository for
28th beta of the unc0ver v3.0.0 pre-release is as follows:
02/15/2019 – v3.0.0~b28 was released for public testing with the following changes:
We can also gather from Pwn20wnd’s comments that Cydia and
Cydia Substrate aren’t yet bundled in this version for iOS 12. Sbingner
recently teased progress
in getting Cydia to function on iOS 12, but there’s still more work to be
done and it’s not yet ready for production. In a follow-up Tweet, Pwn20wnd
calls for the community’s patience as work ensues.
Despite the latest enhancements, the unc0ver v3.0.0 pre-release is a beta
and should be treated as such. Unless you’re an experienced jailbreaker or a
developer and understand how to troubleshoot inevitable bugs, you’re best off
waiting until unc0ver v3.0.0 comes out of its pre-release stages and gets
officially released to the public.
At the time of this writing, the latest official public release of the
unc0ver jailbreak tool is v2.2.6. Both versions can be downloaded
from Pwn20wnd’s GitHub repository, although it’s worth noting that only the
unc0ver v3.0.0 pre-release supports iOS 11.4.x.
If you’ve never jailbroken with the unc0ver jailbreak tool before and intend
to, then you can follow
