Shortly after releasing an update for the unc0ver v3.0.0 pre-release with ‘partial’ support for A12 and A12X devices, Pwn20wnd dropped yet another revision, bringing the tool up to beta number 45 for public testing.
In a Tweet shared just this afternoon, Pwn20wnd reveals that the somewhat minor update addresses an issue involving the voucher_swap exploit by Brandon Azad on certain beta-centric firmware versions on A12(X) devices:
Here’s the official changelog for unc0ver v3.0.0 beta 45 as per the GitHub repository:
03/11/2019 – v3.0.0~b45 was released for public testing with the following changes:
– Fix the voucher_swap exploit for the beta firmwares on A12-A12X
– Update the APT lists cache file for repositories
It’s worth noting 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.
These ‘partial’ support releases are really only intended for developers, and allow them to prepare tweaks to support iOS 12. Users will get the most benefit from their jailbreak when Cydia and Cydia Substrate are added in the future.
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.
