It was just recently shared that Pwn20wnd was working on 4K device support (A7-A8) for the unc0ver iOS 12.0-12.1.2 jailbreak, but that hasn’t stopped the hacker from performing routine maintenance to ensure the long-term stability of your jailbreak.
Pwn20wnd has just pushed beta 33 of the unc0ver v3.0.0 pre-release with a bevy of bug fixes and improvements concerning the tool’s newfangled iOS 12 support. The hacker announced the update via Twitter Sunday morning:
Citing the project’s most recent changelog entry, unc0ver v3.0.0 beta 33 encompasses the following changes:
02/24/2019 – v3.0.0~b33 was released for public testing with the following changes:
– Fix a stability issue with reloading system daemons that was known for causing the device to get stuck with a spinning wheel and eventually rebooting itself (Note: If you still experience this issue, you should use the RootFS Restore feature and re-attempt the jailbreak again before filing a new issue)
– Fix a bug in loading tweaks without reloading system daemons
– Fix a bug in assertion
– Bundle LetMeBlock by @PoomSmart to make blocking revokes via adding entries to hosts file work on iOS 12
– Bundle NoBetaAlert by @parrotgeek1 to hide the iOS beta expiry alert
This update is particularly important, not just because of the bug fixes and improvements, but also for the native implementation of a jailbreak tweak called NoBetaAlert. This should prevent those nagging iOS beta expiry alert messages from appearing for those who’ve’ been forced to downgrade to iOS 12.1.1 beta 3 to use this jailbreak. Furthermore, the native implementation of a tweak called LetMeBlock should now allow users to block revokes by altering their device’s hosts file.
It should be noted that the unc0ver v3.0.0 pre-release is still a beta, and while it might be tempting to hop onboard right now, we’d strongly advise waiting for the official public release to prevent any possible bugs from manifesting and because not all devices are supported yet (this includes A7-A8 and A12 devices).
Those already jailbroken on iOS 12 with the unc0ver v3.0.0 pre-release are being advised to download and run this update as soon as possible to take full advantage of the new features and improvements.
The latest public release of the unc0ver jailbreak tool is v2.2.6 with support for iOS 11.0-11.4 beta 4 – the unc0ver v3.0.0 pre-release is the only iteration that supports iOS 11.4-11.4.1. Both versions of the unc0ver jailbreak tool can be had from Pwn20wnd’s official GitHub repository.
If you’re not already on a jailbreakable version of iOS 12, then be advised that iOS 12.1.1 beta 3 is still being signed, which means you can still downgrade to it via iTunes. You can use IPSW.me to check the signing status of any firmware version before attempting a downgrade via iTunes.
