It was only yesterday that hacker and unc0ver lead developer Pwn20wnd added official support for tihmstar’s v1ntex exploit to the unc0ver v3.0.0 pre-release, but another revision issued just this morning delivers some important v1ntex-related bug fixes and refinements.
Citing the changelog from Pwn20wnd’s official GitHub repository, the 21st beta of the unc0ver v3.0.0 pre-release sports the following changes:
02/08/2019 – v3.0.0~b21 was released for public testing with the following changes:
– Fix a theoretical bug in downloading the kernelcache from Apple for v1ntex
– Fix a possible bug in determining page size
– Add more debugging to downloading the kernelcache from Apple for v1ntex
Despite the latest improvements, the unc0ver v3.0.0 pre-release is still a beta and should be treated as such. Unless you’re an experienced jailbreaker or developer and understand how to troubleshoot likely bugs, you’d be better off waiting until unc0ver v3.0.0 comes out of its pre-release stages and is 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.
