Not even a day ago, we discussed the fact that iOS 12 now officially has a jailbreak. If you need to read all about that, feel free to do so here. The jailbreak for iOS 12 came a few weeks after unc0ver released for iOS 11. And for those historians out there, unc0ver was not the first iOS 11 jailbreak. It simply brought a lot more stability to the iOS 11 scene. That very same jailbreak for iOS 11 extended into iOS 12. The program is an all in one for people on iOS 11 through iOS 12.1.2 so long as you’re on a A8X through A11 device! So come with me, and I’ll show you how to do it on your own!
What You’ll Need:
- A PC.
- Your mobile device must be an A8X through A11 device. (Google if you’re uncertain)
- Must have iTunes already installed.
- The most recent unc0ver .ipa file. It’s at the end (bottom) of the very long changelog.
- The most up to date Cydia Impactor.
- Your device’s USB cord.
- Open Cydia Impactor and connect your device. If Cydia Impactor cannot start, it’s because you don’t have iTunes installed.
- Drag the unc0ver ipa file you downloaded onto the Cydia Impactor window.
- Enter your Apple ID (email and password).
- Open Settings, go to General, then click on Profiles & Device Management.
- Trust the new certificate for unc0ver.
- Now you can open unc0ver from your home screen.
- Tap the ‘Jailbreak’ button.
- It has 38 steps to clear. You’ll know it worked properly if you get a window at the very end that says you’ve jailbroken successfully. It then exits back out to the homescreen and you’ll have Cydia. If it doesn’t work right, your phone will restart. That’s fine, just go into unc0ver again and hit the ‘Jailbreak’ button again. I had to do it three times the very first time and then Cydia finally popped onto my phone.
- Once Cydia’s installed, enjoy!
- This doesn’t support A8? Don’t worry, it’s reported that it will very soon.
- What about A12 devices? Again, this is reported as working very soon.
- Do I have to use my PC? Yes, unless I find a reliable “No PC” method. Then I’ll update this article accordingly.
