Pwn20wnd releases unc0ver RC9 with fix for device restart loops and more

iOS hacker Pwn20wnd took to Twitter Friday evening to announce the release of unc0ver RC9, which is yet another update for the brand-new iOS 11 jailbreak tool this week that provides its users with some notable improvements.

Citing the official /r/jailbreak post, the new RC9 release encompasses the following changes:

  • Fix the “device will be restarted” loop that some users were experiencing during exploitation
  • Provide more detailed error messages that may be of help when having issues jailbreaking
  • Add an option to increase memory limit and improve device stability

For those unaware, unc0ver supports all iOS 11.0-11.4 beta 3 devices. It’s a semi-untethered jailbreak just like Electra. This means that you need to re-run the tool after every reboot, but it does include a newer Saurik-approved version of the Cydia Store that runs better on iOS 11.

If you’re currently using an older version of the unc0ver jailbreak on your handset, then you’re advised to download RC9 from Pwn20wnd’s official Github repository at your earliest convenience to take advantage of the latest improvements.

If you’ve never used unc0ver before, and plan to do so now, then you can follow our in-depth tutorial about how to install and run the unc0ver jailbreak.
