The team behind Unc0ver t0day released a minor update to their jailbreak tool with some bug fixes. The update comes after nearly a month since Unc0ver v5.2 was released.
If you were hoping that the Unc0ver update adds support for jailbreaking iOS 14 beta, prepare to be disappointed as that’s not the case. Instead, the update fixes some bugs in the device compatibility manager and some initialization issues on A7-A8 devices. Below is the full change-log of Unc0ver v5.2.1:
07/08/2020 – v5.2.1 was released for production with the following changes:
– Fix bugs in the device compatibility manager
– Fix a logic bug to improve performance
– Fix patchfinder initialization for A7-A8 devices
– Allow jailbreaking with corrupted /tmp directory
If you have already jailbroken your iPhone or iPad using Unc0ver, you will need to re-jailbreak it using the latest release of the tool. Make sure to restart your device after updating Unc0ver for the changes to take effect. And if you are yet to jailbreak your iPhone running iOS 13.5, you can follow our guide on how to do so. After that, make sure to check out the best iOS 13 – iOS 13.5 jailbreak tweaks for it here. You can also find some useful iOS 13 – iOS 13.5 Cydia sources here. Since Apple is no longer signing iOS 13.5, you cannot downgrade your iPhone back to it if you do not have the SHSH blobs. So, if you have already updated your iPhone to iOS 13.5.1 or installed the iOS 14 beta, you cannot downgrade to iOS 13.5 and jailbreak your device.
