About rootlessJB Jailbreak iOS 12

Although this is intended to developers, the news about the release arrests all the users as this has ended the long wait. This new update could install and operate on A9-A11 Apple devices. And here the tool targets iOS 12.0-iOS 12.1.2 but not further. And it does not yet support any of the new iPhone devices like iPhone XS, XR or iPhone XS Max and also iPad Pro 2018. So here are the supported devices.

  • iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus and iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus
  • iPhone X and iPhone SE
  • iPad devices do not have A12 or newer chipsets

RootlessJB with Tweak injection

As RootlessJB is SSH based there we find no Cydia download or Cydia substrate support. So this means, anyone successfully jailbreaks with rootlessJB has to install tweaks through SSH. And it is not that easy like you install Cydia apps and tweaks through other jailbreak tools so far. However, we recently found James with follow up tweets saying rootlessJB can tweak different parts of SpringBoard and also with unsandboxed applications by now and will get more updates in the days ahead. But it is not supporting sandboxed apps like messages, Notes, settings, Home etc as of this stage.

Wrap Up

RootlessJB for Jailbreak iOS 12 is now out but with various conditions and limitations. If you are not a developer, you should definitely follow our guide or any proper guide to get successfully through this new tool. But in case if you are only in the expectation on complete iOS 12 jailbreak with Cydia, you need to stay on the lowest possible. So use downgrade rights and get in to iOS 12.1.1 while it is allowed.

LiberiOS as First Public iPhone X and iOS 11 Jailbreak

Making all long waiting for a successful ending, we now find the first public jailbreak as LiberiOS for iOS 11 Jailbreak. Just as expected, the tool works for iOS 11.0 to iOS 11.1.2 supporting all the devices in the 64-bit category. So it will include iPhone X, iPhone 8 and 8 Plus with all the other 64-bit devices.

iOS 11 jailbreak

Since the debut of iOS 11 marked at past September, we came across various stories about the possibilities Jailbreak iOS 11 could take the chance of. And among all them, the release of Ian Beer’s tfp0 exploit and async wake vulnerability was more attention winning. In fact, which would probably have been the reason for all success of LiberiOS as well. In fact, there were a number of rumors about many individuals to get work on a new jailbreak soon once the powerful exploits were released. And by happy chance, Jonathan Levin was one of them who is now successful in releasing the first public iOS 11 jailbreak.

More about LiberiOS iOS 11 Jailbreak

Just as assumed in the times of tfp0 exploit release, the powerful exploit has made a path to jailbreak on latest iOS 11 firmware. But it is important to tell that, it still lacks support for Cydia Download iOS 11. In fact, it neither supports Cydia Download nor Cydia substrate from which you get the chance to install Cydia apps and tweaks for making all the system advancements after jailbreak. But it will not continue for longer as Saurik (Jay Freeman), the developer of Cydia has already confirmed that he has a plan to work on iOS 11 Cydia.

Cydia download

So soon once he brings up the support, you will be glad jailbreaking with LiberiOS. And will be able to jailbreak iOS 11- iOS 11.1.2 on all 64-bit devices leading to Cydia at the end. So for now, LiberiOS by Jonathan Levin lacks entry to Cydia, which is simply the best part of being jailbroken.

Who are eligible to use LiberiOS Jailbreak?

Before you moving to the jailbreak, you should remember that it exclusively adds support to 64-bit devices. So we can list down the compatibility of devices as below,

  • iPhone 5s, iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 6s and 6s Plus, iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, iPhone SE
  • Newest iPhone X, iPhone 8, and 8 Plus
  • 6th generation iPod Touch
  • 12.9-inch iPad Pro (including 2nd generation model), 1st gen 10.5-inch iPad Pro and 9.7-inch iPad Pro models, iPad Air and Air 2, 5th generation iPad, iPad mini 2, 3 and iPad mini 4

If you are among the compatible devices as listed, then you should concern the compatibility of the operating system. In fact, LiberiOS will only add support for iOS 11 to iOS 11.1.2 but no further. So there is still no support added to Jailbreak iOS 11.2 and 11.2.1 and probably will not get in the future too.

You will be able to find more interesting stories about iOS 11 Jailbreak LiberiOS. But only if you stay with us as always. And for now, I am wrapping up. But also making you also aware that the new jailbreak is also a semi-untether. So it will be just like all recent jailbreak releases to the public. So it will restrict you to reboot and also agree with re-signing to prevent the bad impact of expiration.
