A team of cybersecurity researchers released a new jailbreak tool dubbed unc0ver that supports iOS 11.0 – 13.5.
By default, Apple does not allow full control over the iPhones and iOS devices due to security restrictions.
With Jailbreaking method users can remove hardware restrictions implemented by the Apple’s operating system, Jailbreaking gives users root access to the iOS file system and manager, this allows them to download and install applications and themes from third-party stores.
Pwn20wnd states that unc0ver v5.0.0 is the first 0day jailbreak released since iOS 8!. Other jailbreak tools released since iOS 9 have used at least one 1day exploits.
The tool supports all iOS, macOS, Windows, and Linux versions. Pwn20wnd states it will be a big milestone for jailbreaking.
“unc0ver is a jailbreak, which means that you can have the freedom to do whatever you would like to do to your iOS device.”
This tool allows you to change “what you want and operate within your purview, unc0ver unlocks the true power of your iDevice.”
“Unc0ver has been extensively tested to ensure it’s a seamless experience on all devices. Unc0ver works on all devices on iOS versions between 11.0 and 13.5. Below you can find a list of all devices that have been specifically tested.”
According to the team, the tool supports all devices on iOS 11.0-13.5 and enables unrestricted storage access to jailbreak applications.
“unc0ver Team strongly cautions against installing any iOS software update that breaks unc0ver as you can’t re-jailbreak on versions of iOS that are not supported by unc0ver at that time.”
