Hacker and unc0ver lead developer Pwn20wnd revised the unc0ver v3.0.0 pre-release on Monday to beta 34 to reinstate the changes that were previously pulled from beta 33 for further testing and to implement more bug fixes and improvements.
Pwn20wnd announced the revised unc0ver v3.0.0 pre-release just this morning via Twitter:
Citing the changelog on the jailbreak tool’s GitHub repository, unc0ver v3.0.0 beta 33 encompasses the following changes:
02/25/2019 – v3.0.0~b34 was released for public testing with the following changes:
– Fix the root cause of the “Reload System Daemons” failures on iOS 12
– Add an apt lists cache file to ease load on repositories
As it would seem, today’s minor revision fixes a known error on jailbroken iOS 12 handsets and incorporates a cache file that should help reduce the strain on the repository servers. Consequently, repositories should load more quickly and with fewer errors after jailbreaking.
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.
