Over the weekend, iOS hacker Pwn20wnd released an update to the unc0ver jailbreak tool for iOS 11.0-11.4 beta 3; the latest release brings it up to version 1.1.1.
Pwn20wnd announced the update via his personal Twitter account, denoting how unc0ver V1.1.1 encompasses more bug fixes and improvements for streamlining the tool:
Citing the official /r/jailbreak post, the new V1.1.1 release incorporates the following changes:
- Add a label to show the ECID
- Add a button to view the tool’s source code
- Improve auto layout
- Fix various known bugs in:
- RootFS remount
- RootFS restore
- RootFS resource copier
- Icon cache refresher
- Version checker
- Exploit selector
- Jailbreak state detector
- And more…
Anyone using the unc0ver jailbreak is advised to download V1.1.1 from Pwn20wnd’s GitHub repository at their earliest convenience. The bug fixes don’t appear to be overly-significant, but they can still improve the reliability of the tool and its components, making it more stable overall.
Unc0ver is a semi-untethered jailbreak just like Electra, which means you need to re-run the tool after every reboot. That aside, it encompasses a newer Saurik-approved version of the Cydia Store that runs better on iOS 11.
