The Electra Team on Friday released updated iterations of the iOS-Centric Chimera jailbreak tool and the tvOS-centric ChimeraTV jailbreak tool, bringing the former up to version 1.2.7 and the latter up to version 1.2.6.
The Electra Team announced the two updates via Twitter early this morning, and from what we can gather, these updates focus primarily on the exploits used by the tools to jailbreak supported handsets:
It wasn’t that long ago that we shared news regarding the latest updates for the Chimera and ChimeraTV jailbreaks, and as it would seem, Pwn20wnd has been working hard on an update of his own for the unc0ver jailbreak.
The hacker announced the release of unc0ver v3.4.0 via Twitter just a few minutes ago, noting that it would implement @NedWilliamson’s new and improved Sock Puppet 2 exploit in place of Sock Port on older devices, as it seems to offer more reliability:
The Electra Team released updated versions of the iOS 12-centric Chimera jailbreak tool and Apple TV-centric ChimeraTV jailbreak tool on Tuesday, bringing each of them up to version 1.2.5
The announcement was made early this morning via Twitter, noting stability fixes and notations to the credits for the use of Ned Williamson’s Sock Puppet exploit:
Earlier today, Pwn20wnd released unc0ver v3.3.1 with a zippier jailbreak process and bug fixes for dark mode on the iPad, but as it would seem, the talented hacker wasn’t yet finished refining his jailbreak tool.
Just this afternoon, Pwn20wnd took to Twitter to announce the launch another unc0ver update, this time bringing the tool up to version 3.3.2:
It wasn’t long after @NedWilliamson released his Sock Puppet exploit that Pwn20wnd and the Electra Team began playing ‘tag you’re it’ with continuous jailbreak tool updates to support the latest possible firmware version(s), and as it would seem, those updates may finally be starting to plateau.
In a Tweet shared just a few minutes ago, Pwn20wnd announced the official public release of unc0ver v3.0.0, which officially brings it out of beta testing:
Pwn20wnd has been hard at work over the past several days in implementing @NedWilliamson’s new iOS 12.1.3-12.2-centric Sock Puppet exploit into the unc0ver jailbreak. Perhaps unsurprisingly, there’ve been a lot of new updates to the unc0ver jailbreak, with most of those updates involving the tying up of loose ends in regards to the new exploit.
While Pwn20wnd updated the unc0ver jailbreak just this morning to version 3.3.0 beta 6, it now seems that the hacker has updated unc0ver once more, this time to version 3.3.0 beta 7. According to the announcement Tweet, this update resolves several miscellaneous bugs reported by users:
Pwn20wnd released another update for the unc0ver jailbreak tool Saturday morning with several more important bug fixes. As of now, the latest version of the unc0ver jailbreak tool is now v3.3.0 beta 6.
Pwn20wnd announced the latest update via Twitter within the past hour, linking to its source page on GitHub in the process:
It was a busy day for the Electra Team and Pwn20wnd alike, but just when we thought that the jailbreak developers were winding down to take a breather for the night, the Electra Team emerged with yet another spontaneous update for the Chimera jailbreak. The latest version of Chimera is now v1.2.2.
The Electra Team announced the new Chimera update on Twitter just this evening, and they went on to explain that it addresses a problem where the tried and true voucher_swap exploit wouldn’t work when attempting to jailbreak A12(X) devices running iOS 12.0-12.1.2 with Chimera v1.2.1:
The Electra Team made good on its promise to release an updated Chimera jailbreak with support for the new iOS 12.1.3-12.2-centric Sock Puppet exploit by @NedWilliamson, but as you might’ve seen from the slurry of jailbreak tool updates this afternoon, the exploit had bugs that still needed fixing on certain handsets.
Shortly after Pwn20wnd released a revised version of the unc0ver v3.3.0 beta with fixes for all known issues pertaining to the Sock Puppet exploit, the Electra Team released Chimera v1.2.1 to do the same on their platform. The release was announced via Twitter this afternoon:
Pwn20wnd released another update for unc0ver on Friday, bringing the tool up to version 3.3.0 beta 5. This update resolves an instability issue that was introduced in the now-redacted beta 4 release and implements additional bug fixes.
Pwn20wnd announced the release of this update via Twitter this afternoon:
Pwn20wnd just got done updating the unc0ver jailbreak tool to version 3.3.0 beta 3 this morning, and in an unforeseen turn of events, he has just updated unc0ver again this afternoon to beta 4 with an important reliability fix involving the Sock Puppet exploit for iOS 12.2.
Pwn20wnd announced the updated version of unc0ver just a few moments ago via Twitter:
Following yesterday’s Sock Puppet exploit release by @NedWilliamson, jailbreak developers such as Pwn20wnd and the Electra Team have been scrambling to implement support into the unc0ver and Chimera jailbreaks.
While the unc0ver jailbreak has supported Sock Puppet since yesterday afternoon, the Electra Team said that it was internally testing iOS 12.2 support for Chimera and that a release was imminent. Despite having no stern ETA at the time, the Electra Team officially released Chimera v1.2.0 just this morning with support for iOS versions 12.1.3-12.2.
