Can You Jailbreak iOS 12 – iOS 12.4.1?

You can jailbreak iOS 12.4 – 12.4.1 using unc0ver jailbreak and chimera jailbreak. Unc0ver jailbreak supports all iOS 12.4.1 compatible devices (A7 – A12/A12X including iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max. IPhone XR, and 2018 iPad Pro) on iOS 12 – iOS 12.2.

It was recently updated to jailbreak iOS 12.4, but it only supports A7-A11 devices, which means all iOS 12.4 devices except for iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, iPhone XR, and 2018 iPad Pro.

Chimera jailbreak supports all iOS 12 compatible devices (A7 – A12/A12X including iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, iPhone XR. And 2018 iPad Pro) on iOS 12 – iOS 12.1.2, and it also supports A7 – A11 devices on iOS 12.2 except for iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, iPhone XR, and 2018 iPad Pro.

You can also use Chimera jailbreak to jailbreak iOS 12.3 but it only supports some beta versions. It doesn’t support the public version of iOS 12.3, iOS 12.3.1, iOS 12.3.2 and iOS 12.4. Currently as Apple has patched the exploits that were used by the jailbreak tools.

We recommend using unc0ver jailbreak for iOS 12.4. As it comes with Cydia which makes it a lot easier to install jailbreak tweaks.

On August 26, 2019, Apple released iOS 12.4.1 to fix the vulnerability that was used to jailbreak iOS 12.4, so you can’t jailbreak iOS 12.4.1 using Unc0ver or Chimera jailbreak currently.

Pwn20wnd iOS 12.4.1 jailbreak publicly released – Unc0ver V_2.0 semi-tethered

A hacker has released the first public jailbreak for modern iPhones in several years, according to a new report from Motherboard. The report details that with the release of iOS 12.4, Apple accidentally unlatched a vulnerability that it had originally fixed in iOS 12.3, opening the door for this jailbreak to be publicly released for iOS 12.4.1.

Security researcher Pwn20wnd has released a public jailbreak for iOS 12.4.1 Unc0ver V_2.0 semi-tethered, which seemingly works on all recent iPhone models.

This marks the first time in years that such a jailbreak has been release to the public. The jailbreak iOS 12.4.1 as well as any other version below iOS 12.3.

In general, jailbreak details are keep private to keep Apple from patching it. Furthermore, jailbreaks are covet among security researchers because “the ability to jailbreak an iPhone means the ability to hack it,” and exploits can often sell for millions of dollars.

I haven’t used this jailbreak myself, so I can’t confirm first-hand about anything else you’ll need to do to ensure it keeps working. As iClarified writes for earlier versions of iOS:

iClarified iOS 12.4.1 jailbreak Updates
  • This is a semi-tethered jailbreak so you will need to launch unc0ver and tap Jailbreak each time you reboot.
  • If you don’t have a developer account you will need to re-sideload the unc0ver app every seven days.

We never said jailbreaking was easy. However, this is the price you pay for hacking your iPhone or iPad to run whatever you want.

Numerous iPhone users have already taken to Twitter to show off their newly-jailbroken devices, including the recent iPhone X and iPhone XR.

The bug in question was first reported to Apple by Google’s Project Zero team. Apple detailed the fix in the security release notes for iOS 12.4.1

Ned Williamson works for Google Project Zero and confirmed to Vice that the iOS 12.4.1 jailbreak worked on his iPhone XR.

Williamson also explained the security concerns that arise because of Apple mistakenly un-patching the vulnerability:

“A user apparently tested the jailbreak on 12.4 and found that Apple had accidentally reverted the patch,” Williamson told Motherboard. The researcher told Motherboard that “somebody could make a perfect spyware” taking advantage of Apple’s mistake.

For example, he said, a malicious app could include an exploit for this bug that allows it to escape the usual iOS 12.4.1 sandbox—a mechanism that prevents apps from reaching data of other apps or the system—and steal user data. Another scenario is a hacker including the exploit in a malicious web-page, and pairing it with a browser exploit, according to the researcher.

It’s likely that Apple will release iOS 12.4.1 in the coming days to re-fix this vulnerability. Until then, security researcher Stefan Esser recommends all users be wary of what apps they install from the App Store because “any such app could have a copy of the jailbreak in it.”

In an unforeseen turn of events, hacker Pwn20wnd released v3.5.0 of the unc0ver jailbreak tool to the general public Sunday morning with official support for iOS 12.4, the latest available firmware release from Apple with support for Apple Card.

Unc0ver v3.5.0 released to support iOS 12.4, the latest firmware from Apple

Pwn20wnd announced the update just a few minutes ago via Twitter:

Citing the official changelog on Pwn20wnd’s GitHub repository, unc0ver v3.5.0 incorporates the following changes:

08/18/2019 – v3.5.0 was released for production with the following changes:

– Add iOS 12.4 support to the Sock Puppet (A8-A11) and Sock Port (A7-A7X) exploits

iOS 12.4 the latest available firmware for all of Apple’s mobile devices including the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. That’s why this is particularly big news for everyone who has an interest in jailbreaking. It’s not often these days that we can say we have a working jailbreak for the latest release of iOS.

OTA Update An IPhone 5s/IPad Mini 2/IPad Air From IOS 13 Jailbreak (Untethered Or Tethered)

From what we can gather, the newfangled iOS 12.4 support comes by way of the tried and true Sock Puppet and Sock Port exploits. Hacker Jake James explains that Apple patched these exploits in iOS 12.3, but apparently ‘un-patched’ them again in iOS 12.4 for unknown reasons. This was undoubtedly a fluke on Apple’s behalf.

Unc0ver v3.5.0 can jailbreak iOS 12.4 on A7-A11 devices, but A12(X) devices are still excluded at this time.

Pwn20wnd also adds that while the jailbreak works on iOS 12.4. The success rate is lower than it was on previous versions of iOS.

It’s worth noting that iOS 12.4 also brings support for Apple Card, a credit card that can be requested through the Wallet app for use with Apple Pay or as a standalone credit card. Apple has been open in saying that using a jailbroken device in conjunction. With your Apple Card may result in a terminated credit card account for ‘security reasons.’
