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:
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:
Shortly after announcing that he had managed a root filesystem remount on A12 and A12X devices with read and write privileges, hacker and unc0ver lead developer Pwn20wnd has released another revision for the unc0ver v3.0.0 pre-release, bringing the public beta jailbreak tool up to beta version 44.
Citing Pwn20wnd’s announcement on Twitter, unc0ver v3.0.0 beta 44 brings ‘partial’ support for A12 and A12X devices:
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:
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:
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.
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.
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:
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:
Hacker and unc0ver lead developer Pwn20wnd pushed the 39th beta to the unc0ver v3.0.0 pre-release on Sunday for public testing with a whole truckload of bug fixes and improvements.
The update was announced this afternoon via Twitter, linking to Pwn20wnd’s official GitHub repository with a full changelog detailing what’s new in the update:
Hacker and unc0ver lead developer Pwn20wnd revised the unc0ver v3.0.0 pre-release again on Thursday with a slew of bug fixes and improvements. The latest version of the unc0ver v3.0.0 pre-release is now beta version 38.
Pwn20wnd announced the update via Twitter Thursday morning, noting that it would implement fixes to the v1ntex exploit, among other things:
Pwn20wnd began preparing 4K device support for the iOS 12-centric unc0ver jailbreak tool over the weekend, and while the bulk of that support seems to be complete, a few quirks stil remain.
With that in mind, Pwn20wnd has revised the unc0ver v3.0.0 pre-release Wednesday afternoon to beta version 37 with at least “partial” support for 4K devices:
