iOS hacker Pwn20wnd was played an instrumental role in various iOS 11-centric projects in recent memory, including the Electra and unc0ver jailbreak tools and the Rollectra un-jailbreaking tool. As of this weekend, however, we can add the Osiris jailbreak tool to that list.
Pwn20wnd released a rewrite of the Osiris jailbreak tool for iOS 11.0-11.4 beta 3 Sunday afternoon. Osiris uses Ian Beer’s tried and true iOS 11 exploits to achieve a jailbreak on the aforementioned firmware versions, but unlike other jailbreak tools available already, it doesn’t install Cydia.
Sunday morning, renowned iOS hacker Pwn20wnd publicly released unc0ver V1.1.0 with a plethora of bug fixes and improvements.
Pwn20wnd first announced the new version of unc0ver via Twitter, and his Tweet also denotes how we’ll see an updated version of Rollectra in the near future.
Hot off the heels of a Rollectra/SemiRestore11 update this Labor Day weekend, developer and ex-Electra Team member Pwn20wnd has released another update to the un-jailbreaking tool on Tuesday. The latest update brings the utility’s version number up to 1.1.2.-1.
In case you’re in need of a refresher, the update that dropped on Labor Day weekend added support for iOS 11.3-11.4.X devices that had been jailbroken with Electra. Furthermore, it added a new option for un-jailbreaking your handset without losing your user data.
Electra is the primary way to achieve a jailbreak on iOS 11 these days, but it’s still a great idea to have an un-jailbreak tool handy just in case something goes wrong. Rollectra/SemiRestore11, released in July by former Electra Team member Pwn20wnd, quickly filled these shoes. It utilized APFS snapshots to revert any device pwned with Electra to a stock state.
As of this week, however, Pwn20wnd released an updated version of the tool. Version 1.1-2 is available both as an upgrade in Cydia and as a separate jailed package that can be side-loaded even when you aren’t in a jailbroken state.
