Unc0ver iOS 12.2 Jailbreak Final Version Released To Public
Final release of version 3.3.0 of the popular unc0ver jailbreak for iOS 11.0 through iOS 12.2 has officially been released to the general public. After a period of testing, @Pwn20wnd has stripped v3.3.0 of its ‘beta’ designation and deemed it stable enough to be used by all without warning.
As is the modern day expectation for this type of announcement, Twitter was the social network of choice for @Pwn20wnd’s announcement.
The announcement didn’t come with much PR around it or much song and dance, rather, it was a simple tweet to confirm that unc0ver v3.3.0 is “now out.”
unc0ver v3.3.0 is now out – The official release of v3.3.0!
The “official” release follows on from a number of beta releases of the IPA which were designed to get some real-world testing and exposure of the app with the integration of Ned Williamson’s Sock Puppet tfp0 exploit. Not long after Williamson’s exploit made it into the public domain, both the unc0ver and Electra teams have been warring against one another to see which could get a stable version of the app out first to claim the kudos of leading the pack. Both teams have managed to push out versions with Sock Puppet integrated but both also fell foul of reliability issues on A7-A8 and A12(X) devices.
Being quickest, or first, isn’t always an enviable position to be in, especially when you are dealing with the general public’s hardware. No doubt lessons have been learned and there doesn’t appear to be any major harm done with unc0ver v3.3.0 now being officially available as a production release without the stabilizing wheels attached. It also comes missing any verbose releases notes or changelog with the official GitHub release for v3.3.0 simply stating “- Fix a bug in finding kernel offsets.”
This public release will definitely be of benefit to those individuals who have been waiting patiently to jailbreak their compatible device running a compatible firmware but who have stayed strong and allowed others to act as guinea pigs for the release. The changelog is relatively non-existent, which is hopefully a sign that this release is rock solid and will stand strong to serve the jailbreak community proud.
