Great news for the iOS 12 – 12.1.2 jailbreak! Hacker Pwn20wnd has given us a detailed look at the development stages of the next jailbreak utility. Apparently Pwn has successfully patched Cydia Substrate to run on iOS 12 (wow)!
News and Jailbreak Updates
Also you’ll notice that Pwn suggests fully avoiding the rootless jailbreak for iOS 12.1.2 (as we have a number of times in the past) – just hold out a little longer.
Avoid “Rootless” Jailbreak
You should not modify your filesystem so much before a full-fledged jailbreak with Cydia and Substrate support comes out.
