How to Jailbreak iOS 12 with rootlessJB

Jailbreaking is full of news these days through a number of demonstrations and exploiting. And thanks to the developer Jake James, we finally came into a tool update.

And it gives no Cydia or Cydia substrate. To learn how Jailbreak iOS 12 with rootlessJB works, read on the complete note here.

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.

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.
