Untethered Jailbreak iOS 12.0.2 To iOS 12.1 Demonstrated By Ali Security

While the jailbreak iOS 12.0.2 To iOS 12.1 Updated is shown running on the smaller iPhone XS, we can rest assured that it will be supported by the larger iPhone XS Max and most probably the upcoming iPhone XR, as both these devices have the same internals as the 5.8-inch iPhone XS.  Only one day after its open discharge, Ali Security has shown off their iOS 12.0.2 untethered jailbreak on record. The video that had been posted on Weibo by its engineers shows an iPhone X, XS, XS Max, XR running iOS 12.1 with Pandora and Cydia symbols on the home screen.  In the video, engineer demonstrates iPhone X, XS, XS Max, an XR is running iOS 12.0.2 and after that returns to jailbreak the gadget utilizing the Pandora application. He dispatches the jailbreak application and taps on the ‘Adventure’ button. After the procedure is finished he comes back to the home where Cydia symbol winds up accessible. This is not the first iOS 12 jailbreak that has surfaced online, in fact it joins the ever-growing list of developers who boast about jailbreaking iOS 12.1 online but do not show the intention of releasing one for the public. Previously Alibaba’s Ali Security team and Chinese hacking team PanGu both have demonstrated iOS 12.1 jailbreak on separate occasions, with PanGu jailbreak even showing an untethered iOS 12.1 jailbreak.


He at that point continues to reboot his iPhone to exhibit this is to be sure an ‘untethered’ jailbreak for iOS 12.1. After the reboot finishes the iPhone X, XS, XS Max, XR shows a popup affirming its jailbroken status. One imperative thing to note here is that the engineer did not launch Cydia iOS 12.1, despite the fact that it was installed as a component of the jailbreak procedure. It is likely that he didn’t dispatch it on the grounds that Cydia does not chip away at iOS 12.1 yet and most likely crashes on dispatch. Still, it would have been fascinating to see that incident on record.

ios 12.1 final true untethered jailbreak

With the most exciting part of the iOS 12.1 Public Beta behind us, it’s time to sit back and wait for the final release. Unless some major security issue pops up between now and the end of October, I imagine we’ll see a wave of stability releases after this one, with no real features or fixes to find, just back-end code tweaks.  Before you get all energized over iOS 12.1 jailbreak discharge, do take note of this jailbreak is from Ali Security, or, in other words, Chinese retail goliath Alibaba. They won’t discharge its Pandora jailbreak for open, the jailbreak iPhone X, XS, XS Max, and XR is made for research purposes as it were.

The iPhone XR release is around the corner and Apple is busy putting their latest (and greatest?) bit of hardware through the crucible with iOS 12.1.2. As a result, we likely won’t see any future beta changes to our iPhones because they aren’t for our iPhones.  While this was only a proof of idea from Ali Security, we truly trust different engineers will get motivation from this video and work on discharging an open iOS 12.1 jailbreak. We will catch up with any iOS 12.1.2 jailbreak related news when it ends up accessible.
