Pwn20wnd pushes beta 43 of the unc0ver v3.0.0 pre-release with fix for sandbox escape error

Hacker and unc0ver lead developer Pwn20wnd released another revision to the unc0ver v3.0.0 pre-release on Thursday with bug fixes and improvements, bringing the pre-release jailbreak tool up to beta version 43.

Pwn20wnd shared the news of the update via Twitter early this morning, noting that it would fix the sandbox error that many people were receiving on certain devices:

The full changelog for this release as per the official GitHub repository ensues:

03/07/2019 – v3.0.0~b43 was released for public testing with the following changes:

– Fix the sandbox escape error on some devices

– Update the APT lists cache file for repositories

In addition to fixing a rather snarky error that many people were getting frustrated with, the latest update brings improvements to the APT lists cache file for repositories, which reduces the load on the server side of things for speed and efficiency.

In case you missed it, the previous two updates to the unc0ver v3.0.0 pre-release incorporated the new machswap exploit for A7-A9(X) devices to replace the somewhat dodgy v1ntex and v3ntex exploits. This exploit brings an insanely better success rate in addition to speed efficiencies over the latter.

It should be noted that A12(X) devices such as the iPhone XR, XS, and XS Max and the iPad Pro (2018) are not yet supported in this version of the unc0ver jailbreak tool, but that’s expected to change soon as the hacker’s PAC-forging efforts continue.

Furthermore, 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.

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.
