The iOS 12.4 Jailbreak is now available for A7-A11 devices! Best of all, users of supported devices can jailbreak iOS 12.4 right now without a computer. That’s right, no longer do you need a Mac or Windows PC AND you can jailbreak the latest firmware. Today’s release builds upon the iOS 12.1.2 – 12.2 (and lower) support of the original unc0ver utility. Both Unc0ver and Chimera can now jailbreak iOS 12.1.3, iOS 12.1.4, iOS 12.2, and iOS 12.4! Interestingly though, iOS 12.3 isn’t supported. If you’re on iOS 12.3, you must update to iOS 12.4 while Apple is still signing it. Failure to update before Apple releases a new release to patch the jailbreak, and subsequently stops signing iOS 12.4, will result in being locked out of jailbreaking!
How to Jailbreak iOS 12.4 NO Computer
Step 1a: You can skip this step if you’re on iOS 12.4. If you’re running iOS 12.3, iOS 12.3.1, or iOS 13 beta, you must restore to iOS 12.4. To do this, you will in fact need a computer. Simply plug into a PC or Mac, launch iTunes, backup, restore, restore from backup. Alternatively, you can download the iOS 12.4 IPSW manually here. Once on iOS 12.4, you’ll be able to jailbreak successfully. Again, this jailbreak does not support iOS 12.3, iOS 12.3.1, or iOS 13 at the moment. After updating we promise you won’t need a computer.
Step 1: Visit the on-device app installer – tap here. Locate either Unc0ver or Chimera (both will jailbreak iOS 12.4). Tap the big red “DOWNLOAD” button for whichever utility you opt to use. Next go to the home screen and you should see the jailbreak app installing in a blank space.
Step 2: Once installed, navigate to the Settings app. Tap General > Device Management, followed by tapping on the certificate under the “Enterprise App” title. Tap ‘Trust’, followed by ‘Trust’ again.
Step 3: Delete any pending OTA software updates your device may have attempted to auto install. To do this, navigate to Settings > General > iPhone Storage (this is dynamic based on your device). Find the software update, tap it, followed by “Delete Update”. Next, install the tvOS beta profile to prevent OTA iOS software updates from loading – this is available on our download page (tap here).
Step 4: Open the Unc0ver iOS 12.4 app on your device and tap the jailbreak button. Your device will look as though it’s rebooting, this is actually a respring and it’s normal.
Step 5: When your device comes back, open the iOS 12.4 Uncover jailbreak app again and tap jailbreak once more. At this stage, the jailbreak iOS 12.4 process is complete!

In addition to jailbreaking on-device, you can also use a computer to sideload the app. Download either the unc0ver or Chimera IPA and Cydia Impactor. Follow the steps outlined in the above video.
