4. iOS 12 - iOS 12.1.2 OsirisJailbreak12 by Geosn0w

Hacker and software tinkerer @Geosn0w made a very important annoucement saying of a release of an publiv version of an Osiris jailbreak after an incomplete ‘developer-only jailbreak’ for iOS 12.0-12.1.2 dubbed OsirisJailbreak12. Still he has not publish the public ipa yet. Stay with Taig9 and we will update once he deicided to publish the Osiris ipa as soon as possible. Until that you can now download OsirisJailbreak12 from below link.
But it is recommended to not to use this if you are not a developer. For non-developers, you can use TaigOne as a jailbreak alternative.

Note: We will offer OsirisJailbreak12 from TaigOne after it is ready for public usage and Geosn0w has announced that the release can be happen soon. Download OsirisJailbreak12 for Online method from below button.

Download OsirisJailbreak12
If you prefer ipa method download the OsirisJailbreak12.ipa from below button.

Download OsirisJailbreak12.ipa

This was successfull due to the tfp0 exploit that was just recently found by security researcher Brandon Azad. They have made it clear that this is not for public and after deploying it will not install Cydia. This was the note from the GitHub page.

"iOS 12.0 -> 12.1.2 Incomplete Jailbreak with CVE-2019-6225. An incomplete iOS 12 Jailbreak. For now, it only runs the exploit, gets tfp0, gets ROOT, escapes the SandBox, writes a test file to prove the sandbox was escaped then resprings. Feel free to build on top of it as long as you respect the GPLv3 license. 4K devices are not supported for now. A12 and other 16K devices are."

So as we can see this is just for testing purposes and will not for public usage.


Another Developer only jailbreak has been released by Developer and hacker Jake James. This jailbreak is named RootlessJB 3.0. This initially supports for A9, A10, and A11 devices running iOS 12.0 through iOS 12.1.2. Most importantly this Rootless Jailbreak now supports Cydia tweaks.

Download RootlessJB from the below button.

Download RootlessJB

According to his tweet it doesn’t offer package manager installation in the form of Cydia or Sileo and requires items to be installed to the device via SSH via dropbear. But after this new update, now the RootlessJB 3.1 supports Cydia tweaks and some developers have try out their tweaks in iOS 12 to ensure it is compatible with the OS.

RELEASE: rootlessJB 3.0.
– Add initial support for iOS 12.
– Now for now works on A9-A11
– No tweaks or code injection yet
– Spawns SSH via dropbear
– dev-only?
– Enjoy!

Now the new release note for the RootlessJB 3.1 says,

-can tweak SpringBoard
– can tweak unsandboxed apps
– preferenceloader is broken

Why RootlessJB?
Well, as the name denotes, RootlessJB does not have access to root or “/”. The lowest level which enabled access is the /var directory. This is said to be safer since modification or changing system files is impossible to the extent that would cause unrepairable damage. Due to this nature of these jailbreak, third-party App Store apps which block access on jailbroken devices wont be able to detect such a jailbreak. So the jailbreak will work without issues. But we cannot expect many tweaks to work on Rootless jailbreak due to the nature of how the tweak injection is set up.
What's bad is installing a tweak from RootlessJB is not an easy task for now and that is why this is still limited for developers only. But speaking of the bright side, we are seeing the lights of an iOS 12 – iOS 12.1.2 jailbreak. Stay with Taig9 for the great news. Here you go with the tutorial of how to install Cydia Tweaks using RootlessJB.

Cydia Installer

This method is one of the easiest and trusted ways of installing Cydia in to the home screen. This method does not require Cydia impactor to install Cydia. This is an easy online method.

iPhone XS Max Jailbreak On iOS 12 Achieved By Luca Todesco

Luca Todesco, an acclaimed jailbreak developer, has achieved iPhone XS Max jailbreak on iOS 12. This is really interesting because iPhone XS Max comes with the A12 Bionic chipset, which has additional security measures. Last month, Luca Todesco tweeted that he had ‘pwned’ the iOS 12 software. Now he has confirmed on Twitter that the iPhone XS Max jailbreak has become successful.

His iOS 12 beta exploit was still relevant on the final iOS 12 build. With this iPhone XS Max jailbreak, he has validated that there were no hardware restrictions to prevent him from liberating the device. Luca has not only managed to achieve iPhone XS Max jailbreak but also restored the device to the stock version of iOS 12. He is currently using the same phone as his “daily driver.” He described the XS Max as “a damn fine piece of hardware" and he had jailbroken the A12 Bionic chipset.

He has not yet confirmed for a public release of iOS 12 jailbreak for A12 yet. But he has neither deny it. So the hope is still there and let's ready for the big news.

iOS 12 Jailbreak by Indian Tweak Developer Umang

We got a good news for you about iOS 12 jailbreak. An indian developer "Umang Raghuvanshi" has given the confirming facts about his iOS 12 jailbreak using his very own vulnerabilities. Last week, he has tweeted his big achievement with two parts.

Status on my vulnerabilities and a potential iOS 12.x jailbreak: Bugs are alive and I’m able to successfully jailbreak my A11 and A10 devices. Can’t say about the new ones since they aren’t available in India yet. I’m looking at a release timeline for iOS 12.1 [1/2]” “...but there’s no reason to upgrade your devices just yet if you’re already jailbroken or would rather stay on iOS 11.”

He informed that his finding were yet to test on iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR, which runs on A12 Bionic chip. Further, he confirms that the vulnerabilities he used to exploit are still present at the latest iOS release, which leaves us a big hope of an iOS 12.1 jailbreak. Let's keep our fingers crossed and we’ll update you soon.

iPhone XS running on iOS 12 Jailbroken by Pangu

iPhone XS hardware has been jailbroken by Pangu Jailbreak team according to Min Zheng of Alibaba Security team. Min Zheng has tweeted about the achievement of Pangu team iOS 12 jailbreak. According to Zheng the team has able to manage this by bypassing PAC mitigation on the brand new A12 Bionic chip.

This technique can be used to jailbreak iPhone XS Max as well since both iPhones have the same root access and runs on same A12 Bionic architecture. This will definitely disappointed Apple and let's see whether Pangu will work on this for a public version.

iOS 12 Final ‘Pwned’ By Yalu Developer, Chinese Team Demos Untethered Jailbreak

Few weeks ago we informed that iOS 12 beta 12 pwned and now the news has added some more value to it. Italian developer and security researcher Luca Todesco has tweeted that he has “pwned” iOS 12 final. Apparently Apple has not changed much from iOS 12 beta 12 to iOS 12 GM. It is the same build that was released to the public on 17th for all compatible iPhone and iPad hardware.
Further digging we can see that Todesco plans to put another demo video, but is waiting for the arrival of iPhone XS in order to do so. It would be mostly the same as before except for the build number of the installed firmware version.
Here is the video of Todesco for your reference and let's all wait for the good news of How to Jailbreak iOS 12 and iOS 12 Cydia of course (or may be iOS 12 Sileo).

iOS 12 Remote Jailbreak

Well, this is intriguing topic of course. iOS 12 Jailbreak has actually happened. At MOSEC 2018, iOS 12 and iOS 11.4 Remote Jailbreak has been demoed by 360 Vulcan Team.

But since News and demos of recent events happened we can predict a Jailbreak might come for any latest version at anytime.
After Electra Jailbreak for iOS 11.1.2 and Electra for iOS 11.4 beta and iOS 11.4.1, there were many news for jailbreak tools. for iOS 11.2.1 jailbreak, Alibaba Pandora has able to achieve a success but did not released a public version.
Then Min Zheng(aka SparkZheng) has announced that he has got success in the quest for iOS 11.3.1 Jailbreak. Along with this update, another hacker and developer named "SorryMyBad" (Qixun Zhao) announced that he too got success in iOS 11.3.1 Jailbreak under the project "ProjectMoon".
With all these success stories it is sensible that more Jailbreaks are on their way for the latest iOS 12 apart from uncover jailbreak.

Here is a video footage of iOS 12 Remote Jailbreak from MOSEC 2018

Electra Jailbreak for iOS 12

You can directly download it to your device. So this is the most desired jailbreak of all the jailbreak lovers. Thanks to Pwn20wnd, an untethered jailbreak for iOS 12 has been released.
But why Apple has released an iOS 12.0.1 version all of a sudden? Well, iOS 12 jailbreak has been done by Luca and Apple surely wanted to release iOS 12.0.1 by patching all the vulnerabilities they had in iOS 12. So falks, then that would be iOS 12.0.1 jailbreak era. Furthermore, that means iOS 12.0.1 Cydia is likely to happen.
Again another question. Will there be iOS 12.0.1 Cydia or will it be iOS 12.0.1 Sileo ? Let's see. Fingers crossed.

iOS 12 Jailbreak Alternatives

There are large number of Cydia and iOS Jailbreak alternatives found on the market but we recommend not to try all of those as some of them are scams. Here are the set of trusted jailbreak alternatives for iOS 12.

  4. Houdini Semi Jailbreak

Apple Is No Longer Signing iOS 11.4.1 – Here’s What It Means For Jailbreak

Apple released it's iOS 12.1 firmware upgrade and now iOS 12.0.1 with performance enhancements on older devices and major fixes to issues which were not addressed in the previous update. So downgrading to the previous version would not make sense for the average user. But, jailbreakers usually lay their eyes on an older version of iOS as there are more chances of a jailbreak being released for it. And this story has become true since iOS 12 now is jailbroken.
So if you have updated to the latest iOS 12 firmware, you should know that you can no longer downgrade to the previous iOS 11.4.1 version. If you’re currently running iOS 11.4.1, you should be more careful as not to update. If you update it now, you would not be able to downgrade to the previous version.
Note: Apple stops signing for iOS 12 .
