iOS Jailbreaking: unc0ver 6.0.0 released with support for jailbreaking iOS 14.0-14.3 on all devices!
The day of iOS 14 being jailbroken on all Apple devices has finally arrived thanks pwn20wnd and others in the unc0ver Team as unc0ver 6.0.0 is now out! In this article, we’re going to look at this jailbreak release which has finally ended months of jailbreak deprivation for many.
unc0ver 6.0.0 released with support for jailbreaking iOS 14.3 and lower
Some hours ago, pwn20wnd and the rest of the unc0ver team released a major update for their jailbreak which finally brought iOS 14 jailbreaking to Apple A12 and newer devices including the first jailbreak for A14 iPhones and iPads. This update, named unc0ver 6.0.0, was made possible thanks to an exploit by the folks behind the jailbreak which is based on the CVE-2021-1782 vulnerability patched in iOS 14.4. While it is not fully clear whether the exploit was developed with any help outside of the unc0ver team, ModernPwner and Pattern F had released their own exploits based on the aforementioned vulnerability before the release of unc0ver 6.0.0 which could have served as some form of inspiration seeing how they’re both open-source.
Turning focus back to what matters to the end-user, unc0ver 6.0.0 brings along:
- A complete jailbreak with Cydia and tweak injection support for all devices running iOS 14.0-14.3 including A14 ones such as the iPhone 12 (Pro)
- This means that A12 and newer devices can now be jailbroken on iOS 14.0-14.3 since checkra1n only supports A11 and older devices. Furthermore, those using A11 devices on iOS 14.0-14.3 can keep on using biometrics and password protection with unc0ver as checkra1n impedes their usage
- All versions of iOS 13 can now be jailbroken as support for iOS 13.5.1-13.7 has been added
- Those using older devices such as the iPhone 5S and 6 also benefit from this release as support for iOS 12.4.9-12.5.1 has been added
- iOS 12.4.2 and above are security updates for A7/A8 devices although iOS 12.5 brought along COVID exposure notification support
