The @pwn20wnd team is out with Unc0ver 3.3.8 update which fixes the stability issues with the Sock Puppet exploit and adds support for 4K devices like the iPhone 5s, iPhone 6 running iOS 12.1.3 – iOS 12.2.

Last week, the Pwn20wnd team updated Unc0ver jailbreak with Sock Puppet exploit and added jailbreaking support for iOS 12.1.3 – iOS 12.2. However, the initial release was a bit buggy and did not support older iPhones like the iPhone 5s and iPhone 6.

With the latest release of Uncover, the Pwn20wnd team is fixing all issues with its jailbreaking tool. Not only does the update add support for 4K iPhones running iOS 12.1.3 – iOS 12.2, it also improves the reliability of the exploit.

Below is the full change-log of the update:

  • Use the rewritten SockPort 2.0 exploit with ~100% reliability
  • ~100 milliseconds run time and support for all devices on iOS 11.0-12.2 (12.1.3-12.2 on A12-A12X excluded)
  • Fix the jailbreak on iOS 12.2 iPhones and iPods

Right now, if you have an iPhone or iPad running iOS 12 – iOS 12.2, Unc0ver is your only option to jailbreak it. The Electra team is yet to update Chimera and add support for 4K (A7-A8) devices, though they have already updated it with iOS 12.2 support. However, given the development from Pwn20wnd’s team, this is just a matter of time before we see a similar Chimera update drop.
