Electra Team releases Chimera v1.0.7 with a faster jailbreak process

Chimera jailbreak users are in for a treat this morning, as the CoolStar-led Electra Team has just released an updated version of the iOS 12.0-12.1.2-centric Chimera jailbreak tool with significant speed improvements to the jailbreak process.

The Electra Team shared the news of the updated Chimera jailbreak tool early this morning via Twitter, noting that version 1.0.7 was now the latest release:

Unc0ver v3.0.0 beta 49 released to fix all known bugs with the iOS 11.0-12.1.2 jailbreak to date

Hacker and unc0ver lead developer Pwn20wnd dropped a significant update for his jailbreak tool on Saturday with an extensive list of changes that purportedly “fixes all known stability issues” on jailbroken installations of iOS 11.0-12.1.2.

Pwn20wnd announced the updated version of the jailbreak tool, dubbed unc0ver v3.0.0 beta 49, via Twitter earlier in the day:

Pwn20wnd says machswap2 exploit is coming to unc0ver with support for A7-A12(X) devices

It was only two weeks ago that security research @iBSparkes shared an iOS 11.0-12.1.2 exploit dubbed machswap with the general public, and just a few days later, hacker and unc0ver lead developer Pwn20wnd integrated the new exploit into his unc0ver jailbreak tool for A7-A9(X) devices running iOS 11.0-12.1.2. Fortunately, the fun isn’t stopping there.

As it would seem, @iBSparkes has been working on a newer exploit dubbed machswap2, which works in similar ways and supports A7-A12(X) devices running iOS 11.0-12.1.2. Perhaps more importantly, Pwn20wnd got it working with unc0ver, which means the jailbreak tool will soon support both the machswap or machswap2 exploits:

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:

Unc0ver v3.0.0 pre-release can now use the machswap exploit to jailbreak A9(X) devices

Hacker and unc0ver lead developer Pwn20wnd revised the unc0ver v3.0.0 pre-release on Wednesday to beta version 42 with some significant improvements, including full support for the new machswap exploit on A9(X) devices.

Pwn20wnd shared the news about the new version on Twitter just this afternoon, directing users to his personal GitHub repository with download links:

PSA: Nagging Pwn20wnd won’t make A12(X) support come any faster to unc0ver

Many enjoy jailbreaking their iPhones and iPads because it gives them more control over the aesthetic and behavior of their device. That said, it comes as no surprise that folks are thrilled to get their hands on a full-fledged jailbreak for iOS 12 on Apple’s latest handsets.

Albeit exciting, we’d like to remind the community that relentlessly begging for support on your device and hounding the experts for ETAs does not make things come any faster; in fact, it may only delay our waiting as the hackers behind our jailbreaks don’t much care for the spam and become frustrated as a result.

Unc0ver v3.0.0 beta 41 released with support for the new machswap exploit

Just yesterday, hacker and unc0ver lead developer Pwn20wnd dropped a significant update for the unc0ver v3.0.0 pre-release, one that added support for 4K devices and made the iOS 12-centric jailbreak tool fully-compatible with all pre-A12 devices for the first time.

But one must wonder when Pwn20wnd finds time to sleep, as the hacker seemingly released another update for the unc0ver v3.0.0 pre-release in the middle of the night, bringing the tool up to beta version 41.

Unc0ver v3.0.0 beta 40 released with full support for pre-A12 devices running iOS 12.0-12.1.2

As promised, hacker and unc0ver lead developer Pwn20wnd has released the 40th beta of the unc0ver v3.0.0 pre-release for public testing Monday afternoon with support for all pre-A12(X) devices running iOS 12.0-12.1.2.

Pwn20wnd announced the revision via Twitter just a few minutes ago, adding that it bundles Cydia and an updated version of Cydia Substrate for all supported devices:

Pwn20wnd says full iOS 12 support for 4K devices is coming soon

Good news for those of you waiting for an iOS 12 jailbreak on any 4K devices – hacker and unc0ver lead developer Pwn20wnd announced Monday morning that an update would be coming to the unc0ver jailbreak tool very soon.

In a Tweet shared by Pwn20wnd just this morning, we learn that Saurik has updated Cydia Substrate to resolve a bug that prevented full 4K device support initially, and we can also gather that unc0ver co-developer Sam Bingner has pushed important updates to many of the jailbreak’s dependencies that will make full 4K support possible:
