iOS 12 Jailbreak: Apple Stopped Signing iOS 12.1.1 Beta 3, Unc0ver v3.0.0 Updated
Gather around jailbreak fans, we have two news for you. Firstly, Apple has stopped signing in iOS 12.1.1 Beta 3. This in return killed the access of new jailbreaks via unc0ver. Secondly, the unc0ver v3.0.0 got an update.
Apple Stopped Signing
Apple deciding to stop signing in an iOS firmware is not something new. Usually, they will do this after a few months that particular iOS firmware was released or a new version is coming.
As a matter of fact, an Apple event will be held this month and reports suggested that it will be on the 25th. One of the expected things that the Cupertino-based tech company will be presenting is the iOS 12.2 firmware.
The Dilemma Faced By Jailbreakers
With Apple’s decision to stop signing iOS 12.1.1 Beta 3, jailbreakers are no longer able to rollback from iOS 12.1.3 or iOS 12.1.4 and are able to use unc0ver v3.0.0. Add into the fact that jailbreak fans have been waiting for months for an iOS 12 jailbreak, it really is sad news.
But there’s no helping it. Such is how the life of jailbreaks works. This is why jailbreakers usually think twice before upgrading to the latest firmware.
However, fortunately, there is still hope. The thing is, as we noted on our report two weeks ago, the unc0ver v3.0.0 supports iOS 12.0 – iOS 12.1.2 on A8X – A11 devices.
unc0ver v3.0.0~b29 is NOW OUT for public testing with full-fledged iOS 12.0 – 12.1.2 support for A8X-A11 devices with Cydia and Substrate. https://t.co/xwxRUDYbqj

Unc0ver V3.0.0 Updated!
A few days ago, pwn20wnd released another announcement via Twitter. The team released b41 of Unc0ver with support for 4K devices powered by an A7 or A8 chip. With this update, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, and iPhone 5s owners can now also jailbreak their iPhone running iOS 12 – iOS 12.1.2.

The article also noted that for those who are interested in jailbreaking their 4K iPhone, they must remove any downloaded iOS 12 OTA update from the device. Failure to do so will only result in your iPhone or iPad in a respring or reboot loop.
As for the next possible update, that would be adding support for A12 Bionic devices like the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR. As for when will that happen, that information is still unknown.
