Unc0ver jailbreak updated to v8.0.1 to fix “unsupported” error for A12 handsets running iOS 14.6

Pwn20wnd surprised us all after launching unc0ver v8.0.0 Wednesday afternoon with support for A12 & A13-equipped devices running iOS & iPadOS 14.6-14.8. However, soon after trying the updated jailbreak for the first time, users of A12-equipped handsets on iOS or iPadOS 14.6 began reporting how their device registered as “unsupported” by the unc0ver jailbreak app.

Given that these devices are supposed to be supported by the latest version of the unc0ver jailbreak, Pwn20wnd confirmed in a comment shared on /r/jailbreak that this was a fluke and that it would be fixed in a version x.x.1 update. Now, according to a Tweet shared by Pwn20wnd, that update is officially available to all.

Just as expected, unc0ver v8.0.1 fixes the issue where A12-equipped handsets running iOS or iPadOS 14.6 would register as “unsupported” when attempting to jailbreak. These users can now sideload the latest version of the unc0ver jailbreak and pwn their iPhone or iPad just like anyone else with a supported device.

Speaking of supported devices, the A12 and A14 chip is found in a variety of iPhones and iPads spanning the iPhone XR to the iPhone 11 Pro Max. A full list of device variants can be found below:

  • iPhone XR
  • iPhone XS
  • iPhone XS Max
  • iPhone SE 2nd generation
  • iPhone 11
  • iPhone 11 Pro
  • iPhone 11 Pro Max

  • iPad Air 3rd generation
