This week two jailbreaking tools have been updated to be able to unlock iOS versions 12.2 and 12.3.
The first one to drop was Chimera Jailbreak v1.2.3, which is supposedly able to customize iOS devices packed with A9 to A11 processors. Team Electra says that Chimera will be able to jailbreak iOS 12 (up to 12.3). However, jailbreaking iOS 12.3 only works on specific beta versions for now.
The second one is unc0ver jailbreak, which reached version 3.3.0, and it can customize iOS phones with processors ranging from A7 to A11 (up to iOS 12.2). The update ensures better performance for potential users.
Unc0ver team leader @Pwn20wnd stated: “I have just done some crazy optimizations to the unc0ver jailbreak and got it to run in 2 seconds with the exploit.”
The developers also said that unc0ver 3.3.0 supports iOS 12.2 as a result of the tfp0 exploit, which was promoted by Ned Williamson.
Upon release of the new jailbreak, the following changelog was attached:
“ Add the Sock Puppet exploit for iOS 12.0-12.2 support on A7-A11 devices
Remove the empty_list and multi_path exploits
Replace the kernel exploit segmented switch with picker view
Add code substitution platform picker view “
“Fix all preferences being off by default”
@Pwn20wnd says that it’s possible to see a new build of another beta release soon, for the sole purpose of optimization (translating to a boost in performance).
These are probably the final iterations of iOS 12 jailbreaks, as it is very likely that hacking teams began turning their attention to jailbreaking iOS 13.
