Jailbreak iOS 12 – 12.4: How To, Download, and News

Jailbreak iOS 12 - iOS 12.4

Apple unveiled iOS 12, the next major iOS software update for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch at WWDC 2018 in June, which includes several new features and improvements. Some of the new iOS 12 features include improved performance, Memoji which allows users to quickly turn themselves into an Animoji with a variety of customization options as well, improvements to the Photos app, Siri Shortcuts which will give automation workflows to users and lots more.

But despite the new iOS 12 features and improvements, there are still many reasons to jailbreak iOS 12 such as to install iFile, which gives access to the file system, tweaks like Message Customizer that lets you customize each aspect of the Messages app, ability to lock apps and folders using Touch ID and lots more.

Apple has also released 6 updates for iOS 12 so far for bug fixes and improvements.

Can You Jailbreak iOS 12 – iOS 12.4?

You can jailbreak iOS 12 using unc0ver jailbreak and chimera jailbreak. Unc0ver 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 12.2. 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 these tools to jailbreak iOS 12.3 but it only supports some beta versions. They don’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.

The good news is that iOS 12.4 beta has been jailbroken, so we hope that unc0ver or chimera will be updated to jailbreak iOS 12.4 when it is released to the public.

We recommend using unc0ver jailbreak for iOS 12 as it comes with Cydia which makes it a lot easier to install jailbreak tweaks.

If you’ve an iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, iPhone XR or 2018 iPad Pro, then you will need to use Chimera jailbreak which comes with Sileo Jailbreak App Store.

Download iOS 12 Jailbreak

You can download the latest version of Unc0ver jailbreak from Github hosted by pwn20wnd.

Before you try to jailbreak your iPhone or iPad using Unc0ver, it is extremely important that you ensure no iOS 12 OTA file has been downloaded and saved on your device. Make sure to delete it from Settings -> Storage and only then proceed to jailbreak your iPhone/iPad. If an OTA file is present, your device will end up in a respring or reboot loop.
