iOS 13.6 jailbreak Uncover and Odyssey

A new tfp0 exploit got success on the latest Apple released iOS 13.6 and iPadOS 13.6. So what that means is this should be patched by another software update in the future. Apart from the hardware-based bootrom exploit method, this tfp0 exploits depend on the software-based. The most popular Unc0ver, Chimera, Electra, and the upcoming Odyssey also use this tfp0 exploit method for their jailbreak process.

At first, we noticed this news from security researcher simo (@_simo36) teased a screenshot via Twitter and said that iOS 13.6 forced him to rewrite the exploit from scratch.

Here is his tweet

Meanwhile, if this exploit does get released to the public jailbreak community, we will have hopes on iOS 13.6 jailbreak on Unc0ver, Chimera, and the upcoming Odyssey jailbreak too. There is a stable iOS 13.5 jailbreak from Unc0ver jailbreak but for iOS 13.6 it needs more work to do and yet to be released a full-fledged jailbreak using this exploit.
