iOS 12 Jailbreak News / Current Approaches

iPhone XS Max Jailbreak On iOS 12 Achieved By Luca Todesco

Luca Todesco, an acclaimed jailbreak developer, has achieved iPhone XS Max jailbreak on iOS 12. This is really interesting because iPhone XS Max comes with the A12 Bionic chipset, which has additional security measures. Last month, Luca Todesco tweeted that he had ‘pwned’ the iOS 12 software. Now he has confirmed on Twitter that the iPhone XS Max jailbreak has become successful.


His iOS 12 beta exploit was still relevant on the final iOS 12 build. With this iPhone XS Max jailbreak, he has validated that there were no hardware restrictions to prevent him from liberating the device. Luca has not only managed to achieve iPhone XS Max jailbreak but also restored the device to the stock version of iOS 12. He is currently using the same phone as his “daily driver.” He described the XS Max as “a damn fine piece of hardware" and he had jailbroken the A12 Bionic chipset.

He has not yet confirmed for a public release of iOS 12 jailbreak yet. But he has neither deny it. So the hope is still there and let's ready for the big news.

iOS 12 Jailbreak by Indian Tweak Developer Umang

We got a good news for you about iOS 12 jailbreak. An indian developer "Umang Raghuvanshi" has given the confirming facts about his iOS 12 jailbreak using his very own vulnerabilities. Last week, he has tweeted his big achievement with two parts.

Status on my vulnerabilities and a potential iOS 12.x jailbreak: Bugs are alive and well and I’m able to successfully jailbreak my A11 and A10 devices. Can’t say about the new ones since they aren’t available in India yet. I’m looking at a release timeline for iOS 12.1 [1/2]” “...but there’s no reason to upgrade your devices just yet if you’re already jailbroken or would rather stay on iOS 11.”
He informed that his finding were yet to test on iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR, which runs on A12 Bionic chip. Further, he confirms that the vulnerabilities he used to exploit are still present at the latest iOS release, which leaves us a big hope of an iOS 12.1 jailbreak. Let's keep our fingers crossed and we’ll update you soon.

iPhone XS running on iOS 12 Jailbroken by Pangu

iPhone XS hardware has been jailbroken by Pangu Jailbreak team according to Min Zheng of Alibaba Security team. Min Zheng has tweeted about the achievement of Pangu team iOS 12 jailbreak. According to Zheng the team has able to manage this by bypassing PAC mitigation on the brand new A12 Bionic chip.

This technique can be used to jailbreak iPhone XS Max as well since both iPhones have the same root access and runs on same A12 Bionic architecture. This will definitely disappointed Apple and let's see whether Pangu will work on this for a public version.

iOS 12 Final ‘Pwned’ By Yalu Developer, Chinese Team Demos Untethered Jailbreak

Luca's ios 12 pwned

Few weeks ago we informed that iOS 12 beta 12 pwned and now the news has added some more value to it. Italian developer and security researcher Luca Todesco has tweeted that he has “pwned” iOS 12 final. Hopes are again high for a publicly available jailbreak for iOS 12. Apparently Apple has not changed much from iOS 12 beta 12 to iOS 12 GM. It is the same build that was released to the public on 17th for all compatible iPhone and iPad hardware.
Further digging we can see that Todesco plans to put another demo video, but is waiting for the arrival of iPhone XS in order to do so. It would be mostly the same as before except for the build number of the installed firmware version.
Here is the video of Todesco for your reference and let's all wait for the good news of iOS 12 jailbreak and iOS 12 Cydia of course (or may be iOS 12 Sileo).

iOS 12 Remote Jailbreak

Well, this is intriguing topic of course. There is no any direct method of iOS 12 Jailbreak. But at MOSEC 2018, iOS 12 and iOS 11.4 Remote Jailbreak has been demoed by 360 Vulcan Team. This is not a public version and also likely to be vanished since Apple might have took actions to call them off in this release of iOS 12.

But since News and demos of recent events happened we can predict a Jailbreak might come for any latest version at anytime.
After Electra Jailbreak for iOS 11.1.2 and Electra for iOS 11.4 beta and iOS 11.4.1, there were many news for jailbreak tools. for iOS 11.2.1 jailbreak, Alibaba Pandora has able to achieve a success but did not released a public version.
Then Min Zheng(aka SparkZheng) has announced that he has got success in the quest for iOS 11.3.1 Jailbreak. Along with this update, another hacker and developer named "SorryMyBad" (Qixun Zhao) announced that he too got success in iOS 11.3.1 Jailbreak under the project "ProjectMoon".
With all these success stories it is sensible that more Jailbreaks are on their way for the latest iOS 12.

Here is a video footage of iOS 12 Remote Jailbreak from MOSEC 2018

Electra Jailbreak for iOS 12

A very interesting topic indeed, and the majority of Jailbreak lovers are eagerly waiting for Electra to release an Electra jailbreak for iOS 12. Since Saurik is on a pause from a certain period, and Cydia apps have no platform to perform, Electra team is introducing Sileo. A full Cydia replacement for iOS 11. Read more of Sileo and Electra Jailbreak for iOS 12.

iOS 12 Jailbreak without Computer

iOS 12 jailbreak most probably would be a semi untethered with comparing the latest release of jailbreak tools. So TaigOne stands for you to install those tools without fear and will offer the iOS 12 jailbreak once it is released.
It's a promise.

Will there be untethered jailbreak for iOS 12

An untethered jailbreak allows you to jailbreak your device, run Cydia apps and tweaks, and reboot your device at anytime will without any effect. This doesn't need a computer for installation. You can directly download it to your device. So this is the most desired jailbreak of all the jailbreak lovers. As iOS 12 jailbreak was demonstrate by non other than our own Luca Todesco, our hopes are high for the jailbreak geek to provide us, an untethered iOS 12 jailbreak. Apple has released iOS 12.1 developer beta plus iOS 12.0.1 OTA update so far.
But why Apple has released an iOS 12.0.1 version all of a sudden? Well, iOS 12 jailbreak has been done by Luca and Apple surely wanted to release iOS 12.0.1 by patching all the vulnerabilities they had in iOS 12. So falks, then that would be iOS 12.0.1 jailbreak era. Furthermore, that means iOS 12.0.1 Cydia is likely to happen.
Again another question. Will there be iOS 12.0.1 Cydia or will it be iOS 12.0.1 Sileo ? Let's see. Fingers crossed.

iOS 12 Jailbreak Alternatives

There are large number of Cydia and iOS Jailbreak alternatives found on the market but we recommend not to try all of those as some of them are scams. Here are the set of trusted jailbreak alternatives for iOS 12.

  1. TweakMo by Yalu
  2. Anzhuang Jailbreak by Pangu
  3. Houdini Semi Jailbreak

Apple Is No Longer Signing iOS 11.4.1 – Here’s What It Means For Jailbreak

Apple released it's iOS 12.1 firmware upgrade and now iOS 12.0.1 with performance enhancements on older devices and major fixes to issues which were not addressed in the previous update. So downgrading to the previous version would not make sense for the average user. But, jailbreakers usually lay their eyes on an older version of iOS as there are more chances of a jailbreak being released for it. And this story has become true since iOS 12 now is jailbroken.
So if you have updated to the latest iOS 12 firmware, you should know that you can no longer downgrade to the previous iOS 11.4.1 version. If you’re currently running iOS 11.4.1, you should be more careful as not to update. If you update it now, you would not be able to downgrade to the previous version. The good news in this story is that Apple is still signing iOS 12, so you can downgrade to it from iOS 12.0.1. This should be done only if you’re having an issue with the latest build.
