Things just keep chugging along for the widely used unc0ver jailbreak. Today’s newest major flagship release is no exception, either. What does it have for you? Should you update to it (spoiler alert: the answer is yes)? Let’s dig in!
Improvements since the 3.3.0 pre-release we covered a while back.

What You’ll Need to Jailbreak:
- A PC.
- Your mobile device must be an A8X through A11 device. (Google if you’re uncertain)
- Must have iTunes already installed.
- The 3.4.0 unc0ver .ipa file.
- 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!
