New tfp0 exploit supports latest iOS 13.6

July 20, 2020

Apple seeded iOS 13.6 and iPadOS 13.6 to the public with a bunch of updates and improve performance. In addition to this release iOS 14, the major system update from Apple yet to be released this fall.

Apple was fixing and releasing updates for iOS users when a loophole figure-out by jailbreak community. We all can confirm this action with the latest updates for iOS 13.5.1. As it killed the vulnerability issue found by Unc0ver on iOS 13.5.

Meanwhile, with this iOS 13.6 update, we heard an achievement from our jailbreak community. A new tfp0 exploit was found by a security researcher simo (@_simo36) and furthermore, the teased screenshot on twitter shows the newest exploit will work with newest iDevices as he found it on an iPhone 11 Pro.

And also he said that

“iOS 13.6 forced me to rewrite the exploit from scratch”

As mentioned earlier, this tfp0 exploit was discovered in iOS 13.6 and it will be potentially lead to an iOS 13.6 jailbreak. But do not go hipe with the news as we do not hear of a public release of this exploit. So far, we can assume that this new tfp0 exploit will be used for upcoming software-based jailbreak tools for there newest upgraded version releases.

Even though, there’ s a lot to be done behind the scene with this simo’ s newest discovered tfp0 exploit. We ‘re so excited to hear this new approach could help for jailbreak developers to achieve iOS 13.6 jailbreak.

Thus, there’s a full-fledged jailbreak that works for all iPhone and iPads with Unc0ver jailbreak on iOS 13.5. If the Unc0ver team grabbed this new tfp0 exploit, we can have hope for a new Unc0ver jailbreak for iOS 13.6 updates in the near future. But the team needs to put much more effort to become it alive.

Until then, you can have a lifetime jailbreak experience with Checkra1n jailbreak for iOS 13.6 as Checkra1n jailbreak is a bootrom exploit method used to jailbreak. Moreover, it does not depend on any iOS update and it cannot be patched by any exploit. In other words, Checkra1n jailbreak is a hardware-based jailbreak that you can achieve any iOS update.
